Aside from the Boston Bruins who are an amazing 9-0-1 in their last 10 games the rest of the Northeast Division has been horrible.
Montreal is 3-4-3
Buffalo is 3-6-1
Ottawa is 3-4-3
The only good game the Habs played during this strech was against Ottawa but then they almost lost to them the following week. The other two wins were from shootouts against St. Louis (3-5-2 in their last 10) and Ottawa.
I'm hoping by this time next month (Christmas) things look a lot different. The Canadiens shouldn't be hanging around with the likes of Toronto, Buffalo & Ottawa this year.
