The Canadiens are one team that looked good at points in the regular season, but then looked horrible. Now, the restart is looking at coming back and the team is looking towards the playoff shuffle. The Canadiens finished the regular season right on the cusp of the playoffs with a total of 71 points on the year, but the record was still under the five hundred mark.
When it comes to the offense the Canadiens looked like a team that had to rely on a single player to control most of their offensive production. Tomas Tatar was the leading scorer for the Canadiens with a total of 61 points on the year. He also led the Canadiens in goals with 22 and in assist with 39 on the year.
When it came to protecting the net the Canadiens ended up relying mainly on one player in net and that was Carey Price. Price during the season played in 58 games and posted a 27-25-6 record in the season. Price ended up allowing only 2.79 goals a game on average, but he only managed to save 90.9% of the shots that were sent towards him.
The Canadiens are one team that should be able to come into the playoffs and potentially start to come out strong. The offense for the Canadiens could have issues as they are relying on a single player to carry the majority of the load and as many teams have found out that type of reliance can cause them some issues.
