Boston had a bunch of key injuries a few weeks earlier; Ottawa had them early in the season. What does that tell you - that those teams are just as soft, but have better timing?

Our roster was decimated. Don't mistake the team you saw with the team that earned 2nd place in the EC.
Great post. You won't see this rational explanation get too much play in the media because it doesn't fit a narrative, but there it is. **** happens in hockey, this year it happened to the Habs close to and during the playoffs.
