I keep thinking this Montreal thing can't last but they keep piling up points. Kudos to Therrien.
Therrien's done great things but its completely different from last year. Everyone's compete level is super high and they never give up. Last night they were down 2-0 to Buffalo and if that was the case last season, it probably would have stayed that way, but they competed in the third and tied it up. Young guys like Gallagher and Galchenyuk are definitely helping, Subban is having a breakout season and Lars Eller is really flourishing with top six minutes. He's a monster when he has the puck.
As a Habs fan, the start seemed a bit too good based off last season, but 1 regulation loss in their last 18 games...this team is flat out good. And we still don't have Bourque, Diaz or Prust back yet.
