Another day, another Habs loss. But this time, with the Habs dropping a 4-1 decision to the Flyers, the game had a little more meaning.
For the Flyers, they officially clinched a playoffs spot. For Montreal? They are now officially eliminated.
As HIO's Mike Boone points out, the Habs now have 34 regulation losses this season. Thrown in 13 OT/SO losses, and that total swells to 47.
Yowza! Sounds like it's time for the mercy rule!
This season can't end soon enough for Habs fans. And, they can take solace in the the fact that the Habs will certainly be drafting high. Top-Five for sure with a shot at Top-Three.
That's a pretty good consolation and a well needed shot in the arm for what should be an offseason rebuild.
