5th in the East

I don't remember the last time we were this high in the standing table. Hopefully our guys continue playing the same way and keep collecting points. In such a short season, every single game is important.

2010-11, we led the division for most of the first half.

With 1 less game than most teams as well.

And wow, what's up with Philly? 7 GP and only 2 wins?

Feels good. Hope we keep this up. But I feel we'll get a rude awakening tomorrow or this week end. Have a little slump. Just so we can tune our game and come back in the higher spots.

Yep, we were ahead of the 2nd place team by 1 goal. Detroit, I think? Maybe Ottawa? I forget. But we pulled ahead of Pittsburgh for the conference lead by a point in the last game too. Sweet, sweet year.

I hope we can stay 1 point behind Boston so that our first game against them in a week or so will be for the conference.

That's going to be a whale of a game.

I agree. But it feels great, right now. I think we'll have a slump in standings soon. But not a terrible one. Enough for us to wake up and come back stronger.

But until that harsh reality hits us in the face. "WWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!"

Good to see you guys doing well, most of my buddies are Habs fans and there is nothing better than a Bruins/Habs rivalry. The young guys are playing well, Markov is healthy and Price is just Price.

No. I think we're going to get a good slap in the face at some point. But I do think we'll carry on strong eventually.

Let's enjoy the roller coaster ride until then.

I expect it to come tomorrow, or at latest this week end. At the very least, you won't be tortured by the suspense of waiting for it.

looks good so far, with the shortened season, if we can continue to play like this until the 10-15 game mark it will be difficult for other teams to leap frog us.

Go Habs go!!!

The Habs had a favorable schedule to start and they took advantage. Hopefully they can keep it up.

I read somewhere once that the actual date is American Thanksgiving, or about 1/4 of the way through the season. If you're not top eight in the conference by that time you can be pretty well sure that you're not making the playoffs in April (I think the numbers are if you are in the playoffs at American Thanksgiving there's a 77.5% chance you'll be in the playoffs period). This season, with its shortened schedule against only conference rivals will be different, but I imagine by game 15 (Monday, February 18th versus Carolina) we'll gave a good idea of where we stand.

All the same a 4-1-0 start is quite good. Everything is magnified in this shortened season, so it's almost like we opened 8-2-0 - which should make even the most pessimistic of fans a little more content. Considering we did it without PK and with Patches on IR for the last two games it looks even better.

+7 goal difference is what I'm most pleased about. If we were first with a +1 that wouldn't be the same. It means we're winning our games handily.

Additionally our GAA is near the top too.
