The Habs play an early game today in Florida, mercifully bringing the current road trip to a close on New Years Eve. I’m not going to over analyze the importance of today’s contest.
The Canadiens have been losing ground in the standings and will face a dog fight the rest of the year to get back into a good position in the Playoffs. Florida isn’t a threat in the standings – but the Habs are 3 points down on the Bruins, having played two more games. Not good.
The only way to start the process of getting back into the playoffs (and not having to play Pittsburgh again) is to start winning.
Go Habs Go!!
