50 is a pretty big number, no? Like, I mean if someone gave you 50 jelly beans, you'd think you had a lot of then.
Well what about losses in hockey? 50 sounds like an abusive amount of losses for a team to have, doesn't it?
Unfortunately for a Habs team whose season can't end soon enough, they lost their 50th of the year to the Caps last night.
50 losses. 50. Wow. That is just staggering. 35 in regulation and 15 in overtime or the shootout. I guess on one hand, you can say that they kept things close in many of those games.
But, at this point, it doesn't really matter.
What does matter is that with three games left to play and the Leafs winning last night, Montreal is looking like a lock for a top-three pick this June!
