If the NHL wants to market guys like Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby in the NHL playoffs, they might want to have a little sit down with the Montreal Canadiens.
Despite being heavy underdogs in both the first and second round, the Montreal Canadiens, the eighth place seed in the Eastern Conference – have earned a berth in the Eastern Conference Finals. They are awaiting the winner of the Boston vs Philadelphia series – which looks like it could be going to a game 7 – with Philly up 2-0 just about half way through the third.
Does Montreal have what it takes to make it to the Stanley Cup? If Halak has anything to do with it, the Montreal Canadiens will have their names on the Stanley Cup again, for the NHL record 25th time.
