Are The Canadiens A Playoff Team?

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,

Your Montreal Canadiens are, at best, a mediocre hockey team that faces a steep uphill climb to make the playoffs.

If you figure 96 points punches a ticket to the postseason dance, the Canadiens will have to reap 72 from their remaining 57 games.

Do-able?

Sure … if you believe the team we saw in Anaheim is capable of putting together a winning streak that will propel them northward in the standings.

Of course, that wasn’t the team we hope to be seeing. Max Pacioretty will be back in the lineup when the Canadiens return to Montreal and face the might Columbus Blue Jackets at the Bell Centre on Tuesday.

Maybe Andrei Markov will play. Maybe not.
