Who woulda thunk it?
Your Montreal Canadiens have 73 points, the same total as the mighty, Eastern Conference-leading Ottawa Senators.
Ottawa has more wins and a game in hand, so they’re still ahead.
But things are getting interesting, eh?
Canadiens played textbook shutdown hockey in the third period to secure a 5-3 win and a sweep of the weekend series against the Flyers. They finished their regular season series against Philly 4-0.
It was Canadiens’ 19th win on the road – and Carey Price’s third win in a row.
Price made 34 saves. Canadiens killed six penalties and got another huge effort from Francis Bouillon, who scored his first goal in almost a year.
