Once Glorious Montreal Canadiens To Miss The NHL Playoffs

March 21, 2016

It was probably over before, but after last night’s (4-1) home loss to the Calgary Flames, it is all but definite the once glorious Montreal Canadiens will miss the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Starting with 5 Stanley Cup victories in 5 straight seasons (1956-1960), Montreal has gone (17-2) in the Stanley Cup finals, one of the two losses to the Flames in 1989.

One of the 17 Cup wins in that span was vs the Flames a (4-1) series win in 1986 The last three Montreal titles came in (4-1) finals series wins, all after losing the first game.

So it all but ends for Montreal in a (4-1) loss, a team/franchise that incredibly made the playoffs of some kind 71 out of 76 seasons, starting in 1923, a year another greatest team in its sports league, the New York Yankees won their first World Series in the first year of play at Yankee Stadium.
