Chara played with an injury so severe he couldn't take slap shots. You remember his wrist shots from the point on the PP?
Kobasew our #2 RW out
and Manny out also
And we took it a tough 7 against a MUCH better team
only reason that happened is cuz Kessel did what Akost and Plekanec failed to do for us. Also Julien is a great coach. Two of the three games this series have been one goal games. One bounce here or there and it could have been very different and headed for 7. Also, Chara may have been injured...but he still played. I would take Markov at Chara's "injury level" over not having him at all and I think that he would have made a very big difference. Same goes for Lang. Only person of real importance who didn't play was Bergeron (i'm not buying into Kobasew LAST year beign such a huge factor).
