If the Habs do nothing they are out in the secound or third round unless they are extremely lucky like Carolina was (injury to every other team key player: Koivu, Connoly, Roloson) or pay the referee to close their eyes like Boston.

Boston 2011 Run
1st round - Montreal - Injuries: Josh Gorges, Andrei Markov, Max Pacioretty, Wizneiwski (playing, but playing hurt)

2nd Round - Philadelphia - Chris Pronger, Jeff Carter

3rd Round - Tampa Bay...nuff said

Finals - Vancouver - Hamuis, Raymond, Rome(suspended), Kesler(playing hurt)

Other notable injuries - Malkin and Crosby on Pittsburgh, who went to game 7 with tampa....would have had to go through them.

But hey **** therrien said..there are gonna be surprises this`s our job to be one of them. Maybe the eastern conference falls down for us too.
