2nd Place: Montreal Canadiens

Prior to Sunday’s loss against the Arizona Coyotes, the Canadiens had been on a five-game winning streak. They pretty much had to be to catch up to the division-leading Lightning.

The Canadiens have been one of the most consistent teams all season as they have six winning-streaks that lasted at least three games. Their longest losing streak is three games which has happened three times.

The Habs are only dealing with one injury at the moment, to P.A. Parenteau.
