Canadiens Can Clinch

  • The Canadiens can guarantee themselves a spot in the playoffs with a win tonight.

    More importantly, a regulation win against Ottawa would increase the lead over the Senators to 7 points. A number that could just about push the Habs over and put them a couple steps away from clinching their Division.

    A loss to Ottawa and the lead is reduced to 3 with another game against the Senators looming in just over a week.
