Canadiens wrap up February without regulation win
That was a forgettable month.
It's the first time the Canadiens have done so in 77 years, having set the original mark in February 1940.
Montreal posted a 5-7-1 showing in February, picking up overtime wins over the Arizona Coyotes, Toronto Maple Leafs, New Jersey Devils, and Blue Jackets, along with a shootout victory against the New York Rangers on Feb. 21.
Since new coach Claude Julien replaced Michel Therrien earlier in the month, the Canadiens have gone 4-2-0.
Overall, Montreal can point to its poor offensive production as a means for explaining the lack of wins through 60 minutes. With 21 goals on the month, the Canadiens outscored only the Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes.
