Weekly Analysis:

This would not be the best week for the Canadiens, as they’d go 1-2-1. A lot of the issues that plagued the team in the prior weeks with taking careless penalties returned. The team is in danger of falling out of contention in the North Division and if the ship is not corrected, I can see some kind of other changes being made but with the roster.
