Power Rankings
We could be witnessing one of the most dramatic collapses in recent memory and there appears to be little sign of it slowing. If the all-star break didn't somehow miraculously reset the Habs, they very easily could miss the playoffs. They're three points out of the wild card.
GM Marc Bergevin gave head coach Michel Therrien a vote of confidence recently, but as the team endures the worst spiral the franchise has ever seen, there's nothing to be confident about. Montreal is 6-17-1 since Dec. 1.
It's hard to believe that a Canadiens team that had the best start to a season in franchise history is now enduring one of the worst stretches ever by a Habs team. With just five wins since the beginning of December, this team appears to have no answer to this dramatic tailspin.
The Habs are still backsliding. They're now third in the Atlantic and have rival Boston and Tampa Bay right there behind them. The good news is that Carey Price resumed skating, but they still have to wait a while for his return.
After a dominating performance at the Winter Classic over Boston, the Habs have a chance to feel good about themselves again. They feel even better because Brendan Gallagher is back from injury and Carey Price is on the way.
A hard-fought shootout win over the Lightning halted a six-game skid for the Habs, but a lot of damage has been done. Once in a comfortable lead in the Atlantic, the Habs have a lot of company at the top of the division now.
The slide continues for the Canadiens. The former league leaders have seen their large cushion in the Atlantic almost completely erode. After losing eight of their last 10, the Habs have just a one-point lead in the division.
Losing three of the last four is a bit of a concern, but the Habs just went through one of their least impressive weeks in terms of goal-scoring. In all four games, Montreal managed just two goals in each. Three of those ended up as 3-2 losses.
The Habs survived their first run without Carey Price, but now they'll have to go without their MVP for at least the next six weeks. That's a tough pill to swallow, even though they's shown there's more to this team than the star goalie.
Carey Price is back, but now the Habs have lost top-line wing Brendan Gallagher. They've managed to weather the storm through injuries to remain the league's highest-scoring team. They're rarely perfect but often dominant.
Preseason Power Rankings
Montreal is off to a good start in the scoring department. Moving Alex Galchenyuk to the No. 2 center role is already paying dividends while the Habs biggest stars -- Carey Price, P.K. Subban and Max Pacioretty -- are off to flying starts.
