The Canadiens are about to receive some serious help from the Bruins

The Boston Bruins won their last game against the Panthers with a score of 6-2, which allows them to take a 3-1 lead in the series. It is important to note that this victory was achieved despite the absence of two of their key players : Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.

Moreover, this victory could be a source of joy for Canadiens fans.

Indeed, an elimination of the Panthers in the first two rounds would mean that their first round pick would be 17th overall. This is important for Habs fans because this pick was acquired by Kent Hughes in the trade that sent Ben Chiarot to Florida.

If the Panthers are eliminated tomorrow, it would mean that the Canadiens could soon select a promising player with a first round pick. This could be an opportunity for the team to strengthen their roster and continue to progress.


It's true, if the Panthers manage to come back in their series against the Bruins and qualify for the semi-finals, it would mean that the Canadiens' second first-round pick would be 29th overall.

This would be an unfortunate situation for the Tricolore, as it would significantly reduce the team's chances of selecting a top player.

For this reason, it is understandable that Montreal fans support the Bruins in this series, despite their historic rivalry. Ultimately, two first round picks in the top 17, including one in the top 7, would be very beneficial for the Canadiens in their rebuilding process, and would be preferable to a single first round pick at 29th overall.
