2013-14 RECAP

I don’t know how they keep doing it, but somehow the Montreal Canadiens always manage to finish much higher than I predict, and they did it once again in 2013-14.  They weren’t quite at the level of the Boston Bruins, but they did manage to lock down a 100 point season and claim the third playoff spot in the Atlantic Divison.

A relatively easy win over the Lightning in the first round followed by an upset of the rival Bruins in round 2 made it look like the Habs might just be the team to break the Canadian Jinx.  However, Chris Kreider stole Cinderella’s glass slipper when he ran over star goalie Carey Price in the conference final, ending his series.  Without their best player the Habs tried valiantly but fell to the Rangers in 6 games.
