Assuming a lucky 5-1....

Too much anger in this city. Needs scapegoats.
This isn't true in the slightest. The Habs are on a 79 point pace, which is the 12th best record in the conference. Giving them 2 more victories would give them an 84 point clip which would still be 12th place.

The situation is dire for the Habs. The 8th place club is on a 89-90 point pace, the Habs a full 10 points behind that pace and needing to jump over 4 clubs.

A 2 game winning streak is not going to make this ok, the Habs need a lot of victories to make up ground. They will need to be on a 0.600 points percentage record here on out to have a chance.
