The Habs have to be wondering how Tampa has their number, unlike pretty much everyone else this year. Montreal's possession woes could haunt them if they end up meeting Tampa in the second round of the playoffs
03/24/201534
The Habs still are not the most threatening team offensively, but they continue to win. With four victories in five games, they're still in the Presidents Trophy conversation and still have a good chance at fending off the charging Lightning.
03/17/201544
Six losses in their last eight games with the offense sputtering is curbing some optimism about the Habs. They have the talent, but Michel Therrien's bland system has been frequently called into question as Montreal continues to struggle in possession.
03/10/201544
Carey Price has solidified his position as the Hart Trophy front-runner in recent weeks as the Habs can look to their league-low 146 goals against despite an average of more than 30 shots allowed per game.
03/03/201543
The Habs improved their defense by adding Jeff Petry and didn't overspend to make it happen. Marc Bergevin has proven to be a pretty savvy GM. The bottom of the lineup was also addressed by adding Torrey Mitchell to the mix.

Now the top team in the East, in terms of record, the Canadiens continue to defy the odds as a poor possession team with a very good goaltender. They just seem to keep finding a way.
02/17/201545
With seven wins in their past 10 games, the Habs have moved all the way up to second in the NHL with 78 points. Cary Price appears to be the Hart Trophy front-runner now.
02/10/201558
The Habs have been incredible since Dec. 9 with a 16-5-1 mark. They've also won seven of their last nine. They might be overachieving a bit, but it's still pretty remarkable.
02/03/2015811
Montreal is another of the six-team 32-win club. The Habs and Red Wings are still chasing the Lightning, but are getting ever closer. Carey Price is the difference, as he's putting together a season worthy of MVP consideration.
01/27/20151111
Hopefully P.K. Subban and Max Pacioretty enjoyed the extra rest during the break because they'll be leaned on heavily, though perhaps not quite as much as All-Star goalie Carey Price.

The Habs have shown some serious resiliency through four games. The combo of Alex Galchenyuk and Tomas Plekanec looks like it can be awfully productive.
