True, but my point is what shift lengths cost the Habs. This Islander team was very beatable, but fatigue, lack of effort and defensive end turnovers gave the Islanders great scoring opportunities that they buried.

As a coach I love playing teams that have long shifts, I know that by keeping my teams shifts short and rolling all of my lines that I will force the other team into making mistakes due to fatigue and that my players will be fresher an more alert to capitalize.
