A 7th D who played 23 minutes tonight. (Picard)
Our only healthy regular D was a 36yr old Hamrlik who looked dead tired out there.

Team had no chance.

If some of you can't look at the facts and prefer bashing a team ravaged with injuries who is in 6th place of it's conference and still only 2pts back of the division lead...give your head a shake.
I would also like to add to that. First of all it's tough to win with 5D period, but when you have 3 rookies, a 7th D and an old vet mixed with 5 injuries...it's tougher.

On top of that Habs played well enough to win, if Moen can score on the ****ing open net and Kostitsyn on his breakaway, it's 2-0 Habs 5 minutes in and the Oilers mail it in in all likeliness.

Also, waking up this morning, Habs are sitting in 6th place in the conference, 2pts out of the division lead, 1pt out 5th place and 9pts up 9th place.

Also, Gill and Mara will most likely play Sunday which means no more Nash. If Wizniewski has no fracture, it also means no Picard.

Hamrlik-Subban
Weber-Wizniewski
Gill-Mara

How a difference it makes eh?

Add to that Cammalleri coming back and ready to play.

Yes, I like to look at things with objectivity and not emotions.
