The Montreal Canadiens stunned the NHL and Las Vegas Golden Knights last night, as they defeated the Knights in overtime and took the series 4-2.
The Canadiens finished the regular season 24-21-11 (more losses than wins, for what its worth) and fourth in the North Division. Many experts considered the North to be the weakest of the four divisions. It didn’t matter to Montreal, as now they are in the Stanley Cup Final. This is their first final since 1993, the last time a team in Canada has won the cup.
Montreal was led by goaltender Carey Price, who has a 2.01 GAA and .934 SV% so far this playoff. Jake Allen spent more time as the starter during the regular season, but its Price that has elevated his game to take the Canadiens to the Finals.
Tampa Bay and the New York Islanders play game seven of their series tonight to determine who will represent the Eastern Conference in the season’s final series.
