No. 9: Montreal Canadiens

Previous: No. 5

Record: 28-13-7 (63 points)

I mean, what are you supposed to do if you’re Montreal? You’re atop your division by eight points and have been leading it from the get-go, but there’s just too many other hot teams around to make a 5-4-1 record in your last 10 worth anything. Well … not losing to Buffalo in your previous game would probably help matters.
