  • Montreal Canadiens: Eastern Conference Champions

    Canadiens - Eastern Conference Champions

    Enjoy it Habs Fans. After being written off again and again by the various ‘hockey experts’ the Canadiens proved everyone wrong and are the best team in the Eastern Conference.

    How did they do it? Some interesting stats about your Habs…

    • Highest scoring team in the NHL.
    • Balanced Scoring – Seven (7) 50+ Point scorers.
    • Best Powerplay in the NHL.
    • 2nd best Road winning record in the NHL.
    • Rookie Carey Price: 2.56 GAA – 24 Wins – 3 SO
    • Rookie Sergei Kostitsyn: 9G – 18A – 27pts +9
    • Rookie Ryan O’Byrne: +7
    • Mike Komisarek – Most Blocked Shots and Most Hits before being injured.

    All little pieces to the puzzle to be the best team in the Eastern Conference.

  • Hats off to the Habs

    A win tonight will put the Canadiens into 1st in the Conference and force the Penguins to win tomorrow.

    Depending how the chips fall into place over the last weekend of the regular season,
    it looks as though the Canadiens will play the Senators, Bruins or Flyers in the first round.

    The Maple Leafs may look to spoil the party and go out with a bang like they did against the Senators, injuring 2 key players.

    Regardless of how it all ends, the Canadiens have surprised and impressed, exceeded any and all expectations, and find themselves with a very legitimate shot at winning it all.

    Go Habs Go!
