Habs Finish Seventh in Eastern Conference


Canadiens defenseman Yannick Weber snipes a wrist shot past Panthers goalie Scott Clemmensen.

Montreal may not be one of the elite teams in the NHL this year, but seventh place is much better than sixth last, that's for sure. The Habs turned it around from last season, earning 91 points, with a record of 41-32-9. They will be facing the Washington Capitals in round one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Here are the Habs' three stars of the season:

3rd Star:
Carey Price
The 26 year old netminder bounced back from last year's abysmal season, posting a 0.923% save percentage and a GAA of 2.35.

2nd Star:
Yannick Weber
No one expected this at all, but he lead the Canadiens blue line in points with 35. His offense from the back end really helped out the Habs this season.
1st Star:

Alex Galchenyuk
Everyone expected Galchenyuk to be good - but no one expected that he would have such an amazing impact in his first year. The rookie centerman scored 27 goals and 77 points on the Habs' top line, and finished second in the rookie scoring race, only behind Jonathan Huberdeau.
