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.
