My alternate take on the Patrick Roy's last Canadiens home game,some 13 years later...

I remember watching this game on ESPN2 some 13 years ago;and the real carnage came when his team was already trailing by a goal or two and down a man due to a penalty,Patrice Brisebois boarded Detroit's Darren McCarty,leaving him shaken up.It was on the ensuing 5-minute power play that the Dead Wings inflicted their fury on Roy,scoring at will at every opportunity.While Mario Tremblay wasn't one of the better coaches the Habs have had,does anyone think that #33 would have perhaps finished his career out in Montreal hadn't it been for that infamous board check?Even then,ironically,the hatchet(between Roy and the Habs)was probably largely buried years ago when his number was retired...
