A few differences: St-Louis played 15:14 per game that season, as opposed to 18:23 for DD last season. Also, the Lightning were horrible in 2000-01, even worse than the Habs last season. The Lightning scored 201 goals, the Habs scored 212. Finally, St-Louis had a sustainable 12.8 shooting %, as opposed to DD's 16.3 that can be expected to come back to earth.
