That is such a dumb statement to make because not one single team can get 7 points in 3 games, the maximum they can get is 6 points, no matter if the other team gets an extra point for losing in overtime/shootout. Habs had 3 points out of 6, that's half of the points, not less than half. And don't give me the 'Oh, they gave an extra point to an opposing team', cause the Caps were extremely lucky to get the win in that game, a fluke goal to tie it up and a post hit by Plekanec that would've given the win to the Habs. Anyway, that game against the Caps showed that the Habs are way better than they've been. The Caps were almost unbeatable in their home, they were on a really hot streak, but the Habs were 2 minutes away from an upset win in regulation.
