The Habs are hot at the right time, five wins in their last six games has got them tied for the 8th and final playoff spot in the East.
Tonight is another great opportunity to climb higher by beating the struggling Capitals. The Caps have suffered 6 straight losses, and bring their horrendous road record to the Bell Centre tonight.
Meanwhile the Hurricanes have the Sharks to deal with and the Leafs have another date with Buffalo.
With the gap to 6th place being only 4 points, the Tampa Bay Lightning are far from safe, tonight they play the Sens.
It’s not going to get any easier than this and anything but 2 points tonight will be a huge disappointment.
