Habs News, Odds, Leafs Fight, Ference and More

Carey Price - Montreal Canadiens v Toronto Maple Leafs
Morning puck fans.

Based on the season thus far, the last weekend was sort of what you would expect from the Habs.

A miserable blown lead one game followed by a solid, above-average performance the next.

In the end, with three points in two games, the Canadiens saw their odds of making the playoffs rise to 14%.

They would have to win somewhere upwards of 20 of their next 34 games in order to get the requisite points for post-season participation.

If nothing else, Montreal, aided by a slew of three-point games on the weekend, put a dent in the Leafs playoff hopes as well.

In fact, the Leafs appear to have hit a rough patch, as Joey Crabb and Carl Gunnarson even dropped the gloves at practice yesterday.

Schadenfreude? A bit, yes.
