If 94 points will be needed, the Habs would need to gain 52 pts in their remaining 36 games, which is a rate of 1.44 pts/game.
However, the top team in the league right now (Rangers) isn't even earning points at that rate (they are at 1.41 pts/game).
And even the most optimistic of us would be silly to predict that the Habs will be the best team in the league the rest of the way.
So, sorry fellow fans; it is already too late for this team.
