Canadiens muster single point in 3 games over 8 days vs. Bruins
Presented with an opportunity to make up ground quickly, the Montreal Canadiens came up short.
Over the course of the last eight days, the Canadiens played the rival Boston Bruins - a team they're chasing for a playoff spot - on three occasions.
The result? Three losses and a single point earned.
Here's how it went down:
- Jan. 13 - Bruins 4, Canadiens 3 (Shootout decision)
- Jan. 17 - Bruins 4, Canadiens 1
- Jan. 20 - Bruins 4, Canadiens 1
The Canadiens now sit 18 points behind the Bruins, who are in turn inching close to the first-placed Tampa Bay Lightning after earning at least a point in their last 16 games overall.
As it stands, the Canadiens face an uphill battle - if there's any hope at all - to clinch a playoff berth.
