They got pounded by Philly who, not surprisingly, we also faired well against. If anyone watched Philly's games against the Pens, ours were much closer than theirs were.
I think the Rangers were the 2nd best team in the Conference behind the Pens.
It's important to remember how division-heavy the schedule was this past year, and Montreal played A LOT of games against the collapsing Sens & Sabres, the embarrassment Leafs, and the Boston team that the Habs completely dominated.
Had the Habs played in the Atlantic, I highly doubt they would've been on top of the conference at the end of the regular season.
