Montreal had a.500 record at the pause.
Carey Price isn’t the all-world talent he was five years ago, and they have the worst goal differential of any of the teams in the playoffs.
Pittsburgh had a 40–23–6 record at the time of the pause, with a +28 goal differential, and they have two superstars in Sidney Crosby.
It is possible Montreal could upset Pittsburgh if Price gets hot.
I don’t think they’ll win more than a round, with Montreal’s lack of elite scoring talent and their seriously disappointing D corps.
Only the Chicago Black Hawks are ranked lower than the Habs, who are a longshot to win the Cup.
