By going 6-6-3 in March, the Montreal Canadiens failed to reach at least 8 wins in a month for the first time in the 2014-15 season. Nevertheless, it wasn’t all doom and gloom as the Habs still managed to secure a playoff spot, and are still in the running for home-ice advantage for the Stanley Cup playoffs. With a tough schedule, and new acquisitions acclimatizing to the Canadiens’ system, it wasn’t surprising that Montreal was unable to dominate the competition as in previous months. Habs fans hope that March’s tribulations will give Michel Therrien an idea of what needs improvement, and hopefully lead to the Canadiens firing on all cylinders come playoff-time.
It is a testament to the success that Montreal has had this season that obtaining 15 out of 30 points is seen as a disappointment.
