The Canadiens won their 5th consecutive game last night against the Flyers.
The Habs had a few minor hiccups but at the end of the night it was evident the Canadiens were a much better team. Another 2 points in the bank.
5 wins in a row is a feat the Habs accomplished only once last year.
What’s next? How long can the Habs win streak stay alive?
Although they are embarking on a road trip, their schedule can still be considered favorable.
The first game this Saturday in Boston may be the toughest. The Canadiens owned the Bruins last season but this year the games have always been close.
After Boston their next 5 games are against teams that are below .500 with meetings against Tampa, Florida and Washington.
The Sabres schedule is a bit tougher with meetings that include the Thrashers and Canes and the Senators who have beat them twice already.
It’s not totally inconceivable that the Canadiens may reach 1st overall in the Eastern Conference sometime early in the New Year.
When is the last time you could say that?
Merry Christmas Hab Fans.
