Power Rankings
You would be hard-pressed to find a team that would be excited about seeing the Canadiens in the playoffs. They're rolling with 10-2-0 mark of late and Max Pacioretty is on fire.
Remember when Thomas Vanek was quiet, the Canadiens were losing and nearing the playoff cut? Us neither. Vanek has 10 points in seven games and the Habs have five straight wins.
That comeback last week vs. Ottawa seems to have really flipped their script. Including that game, the Canadiens have won four of five and more importantly have Carey Price back.
That come-from-behind win in Ottawa was what the doctor ordered. It ended the Habs' skid while getting Carey Price back in a game. Now if only they can get Thomas Vanek going ...
Dear Southwestern USA: The weather is nice and all but we would be happy never to return again. Barely getting two out of eight points wasn't fun. Signed, the Canadiens.
With Carey Price out a few games, the offense actually showed up and was able to keep the Canadiens winning post-break. That's now five wins in the last six.
After a stretch that had the Canadiens headed the wrong way, they turned it around and enter the stoppage with three straight wins and points in six of seven.
Just when it looked like the Habs were snapping out of their slump, especially with a 4-1 win in Boston, they lose both at home over the weekend. That makes them 2-5-1 in their past eight.
The ship is sinking fast. The Canadiens were outscored 14-2 this week in three losses, a slide that included a 5-0 loss to the Capitals, who were riding a major skid themselves.
The Canadiens have alternated wins and losses since the new year began, the last loss coming at Toronto. In other words, they fit right in with their Atlantic foes.
Preseason Power Rankings
They showed vs. the Leafs they're tougher physically. They showed vs. the Flyers they're still simply tough to play.
