Perreault lost a key face-off to Green earlier in the game... so it becomes a big IF. No one (even Glen 'the expert' Healey) has no way of knowing if Perreault would have won that face-off.

Losing face-offs was not the reason the Habs lost the game tonight.

And the reason Perreault was dressed was because Begin was injured and that is what hurt more than anything. With Begin healthy we would have had one extra player that we could play in crucial situations... and that would have given us more jump at the end of the game and in overtime.
