We were on such a high, and Montreal was just so done after two 7-game wars where it was basically Halak and Cammalleri by themselves, that I think anyone would have been in net, and we would have beaten Montreal.

On the flip side, I don't think the Finals would have turned out different with Boucher in net. We went from beating up on a team that could score, to 3 goals not being enough to win 5 of 6 games in the Finals. It was two bad choices, but during that season Leighton did have a penchant of being able to come back after an awful game. Unlike in the finals though, he had to bounce back against the same team, and that doesn't really work in a long series.
