The lede from the MTL Gazette:

Let’s start off by conceding the Toronto Maple Leafs are a very good hockey team with lots of firepower and a goaltender who is on a hot streak.

Conversely, the Canadiens aren’t a very good hockey team and the goaltender whose play had given them a semblance of respectability appears to have a hit a wall.

I always miss the good games.

I spent a lot of the offseason making fun of the Habs’ offseason so this feels pretty good. They’re not actually this bad and their third string goalie is actually quite good, but all they have is their (declining/injured) goalie to hang their hat on, and an offensive system that relies on the point shot in all situations (donor let their CF% fool you), and a management style that seems to eschew talent for... character? They’ve become the Boston Bruins in all the wrong ways.

Without the relatively recent Cup I would add.
