The Canadiens are one key piece away from being a contender

The Canadiens are one key piece away from being a contender

The team is on the cusp of something special, they just need to address one critical flaw. Montreal played arguably their toughest four-game stretch over the course of the past two weeks. They came away with a 1-2-1 record, but were matching each of their opponents step for step throughout most of those games, before things derailed at one point or another.

Against Tampa Bay, the Canadiens got themselves into penalty trouble, and the Lightning’s loaded man advantage made sure to...
