Tom Pyatt out, Mathieu Darche in for Montreal in Game 5

May 24, 2010, 5:25 PM EST

darrrrsh.jpgTom Pyatt was an absolute factor in the one game that the Montreal Canadiens actually found a way to score in so far against Philadelphia. The rugged forward had a goal and an assist in that lone 5-1 win, but he won’t be able to suit up for the Habs in the first of what Montreal hopes is three elimination games against the Flyers.

Instead, Mathieu Darche will take his place, the Montreal Gazette reports. (Am I the only one who always thinks about “Stan Darsh” from South Park whenever I hear/read Darche’s name?)

Losing Pyatt cannot help the Habs’ cause, but like we’ve all said a million times, never count this team out. They’re 5-0 in elimination games so break out your Fat Lady Singing cliches and avoid counting chickens if you’re around eggs, etc.

    Yes you are the only one that thinks about that. Mostly because his name is Stan Marsh.

    The FLyers are also undefeated in elimination games in both ways.
    They knocked out the Rangers in the last game of the season which was an elimination game. They stopped the Devils and the Bruins as soon as those teams could be eliminated.
    Then on the other side the Rangers couldnt eliminate them. Also 4 times the Bruins tried to eliminate the Flyers and 4 times they failed.
    The Flyers are 3-0 and 5-0 in elimination games.
