By the end of the series, wisniewski couldnt hold his stick, eller was due for shoulder surgery, darche required surgery, and desharnais' knee had him done for multiple weeks.
The team simply ran out of bodies especially on D, and the supporting cast was just overtaxed. So even if they got by Boston, I really think that was the end of the line for montreal.
yeah you really need to take into account that everyone was pretty well dead after game 7
