Just looked at the scores of that series and they are brutal
Game 1 April 29 Chicago Black Hawks 3 Montreal Canadiens 8
Game 2 May 1 Chicago Black Hawks 1 Montreal Canadiens 4
Game 3 May 3 Montreal Canadiens 4 Chicago Black Hawks 7
Game 4 May 6 Montreal Canadiens 4 Chicago Black Hawks 0
Game 5 May 8 Chicago Black Hawks 8 Montreal Canadiens 7
Game 6 May 10 Montreal Canadiens 6 Chicago Black Hawks 4
Montreal didn't score fewer than 4 goals in a single game in the series.
I'm probably going to rank Worters a spot or two over Esposito - I feel their regular season records are pretty comparable. And Worters lack of a positive playoff resume seems more like lack of opportunity, rather than outright blowing it like Esposito did a few times.
