We were 4-3 before the riot, 1-4 after the riot, against an opponent that was not better than the first team.

The riot took much joy out of the Montreal post season and might've affected the mentality of the team.

The riots of 86 and 93 happened after the season ended, so we can't judge the effect of the riots in those years.

I noticed a whole lot less Habs flags on cars after the riot. People were a little ashamed of their mania and cooled down a bit.

In a way those a-hole riots took a lot of the joy out of the series and might even have somehow effected the Canadiens players' performances.

I blame the cops. They should have really cracked some heads.
