Scores and Standings 4/28, "Sonuvabitch" Edition

What can I say? Habs lose, Bruins win. The better team won. Jacques Martin will suffer no consequences for getting out-coached, since everyone will blame the lack of healthy players (which was, admittedly, a factor).

Here's an interesting look at Montreal playoff success:
Since 1993, Montreal has won the first playoff round five times. Three of those first-round wins came against the Bruins. In 1998 they beat the Penguins, and last year they beat the Capitals.
And by the way, last year's win against the Penguins was Montreal's ONLY win in the second round since 1993.
And six other times they failed to advance out of the first round.
The rest of the time (six years) they finished out of the playoffs.
