The Canadiens made a statement this year by beating the New Jersey Devils 3 out of 4 times and taking the season series.
If they hope to win their Division and potentially the Conference, they’ll have to do the same and start beating the Senators.
The Canadiens have not had any recent success beating Ottawa. The Habs and Sens will meet 3 times before season’s end. With so few games remaining an the standings so tight, these games will most definitely decide the Division.
The “achievable point” gap between teams could swing as much as 12 points if one team wins the remaining 3 games in regulation.
