But you know that.
Meanwhile, somehow, miraculously, inexplicably, our soft little Smurf squad won the game 5-1.

But you know that. Or did you? Sometimes the more obscure stats get lost in the big picture of "did the Habs look tough out there or not?".

Gretzky/Semenko, what a relevant comparison in today's game. The game's current best player hasn't played hockey in 10 months. And he plays on a team with enforcers and tough guys! Yet somehow, those enforcers (a) didn't prevent the hits that put Crosby out and (b) didn't seek any retribution against Steckel or Hedman. So what's the conclusion here?
