Habs News, Martin Speaks, Post-season? and More

Peter Budaj - New York Rangers v Montreal Canadiens
Morning puck fans.

Kind of unusual not having Montreal play on a Tuesday, eh?

Mind you, there will be plenty of scoreboard watching with Toronto, Pittsburgh, Washington and Winnipeg all in action tonight.

Well, I suppose there will be scoreboard watching if you believe the Canadiens have a snowball's chance in hell of making the post-season.

But, in reality, there are too many teams between the Habs and the playoffs. As Elliote Friedman astutly pointed out earlier this season, If a team is two wins out of the playoffs at the beginning of November, the three-point games give it a seven per cent chance of recovery.

In other words, Montreal's horrid start killed their playoff chances.
