Come on now. We did this last year somewhat. We started 10-4-3 or something and then proceeded to go on some crappy streak that left us, at our worst, 4 games above .500 in late December. After that, the Habs played their second half of the year, and then some, well over .500 (18 games to be exact. Best stretch of hockey they had played in that high amount of games since early 1992-93 I believe). We hit a bump in November from time to time. The Habs have always been kings of October for whatever reason. I think there have only been three of four losing Octobers since 1983.
