Habs Watch - Crunch Time
There are 5 games left in the regular season. We're in the 8th and final playoff spot.
The good news is that we're on a 5 game winning streak and everyone around us in the race is losing. Halak, the young rookie goalie from Slovakia, is riding a 5 game win streak and will continue to play as long as he is winning. Kovalev has scored 2 goals in both of his last 2 games, and Koivu couldn't be hotter.
The bad news is that we have a road game against Ottawa tonight followed by the Sabres on saturday at home and still a game at Madison Square Gardens to go yet. Hopefully, the Bruins game on tuesday will be a push, but the season is closed out with a game in Toronto.
With the race so close, I see us needing at least 3 of the 5 games as wins, just to stay competitive. At least we have wins on our side :D
