Weekly Analysis

This would be a somewhat better week for the Habs as they’d go 2-0-2 on the week. They would score 13 goals on the week while allowing 13 goals. Montreal did find themselves in more penalty trouble this week again while doing better on special teams by scoring power play goals but still allowing a few goals while on the penalty kill. Coming up in the next week, I would like to see the Canadiens clean that part up and play a full game again. Montreal has a competitive set of games coming up and they need to play their A game if they want to stay in contention.
