As of writing these lines, the Canadiens are not yet mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but it must be admitted that the chances are almost nil.

The current five-game losing streak does not help their situation, as they currently rank 27th in the NHL. Their Tuesday opponents, the Arizona Coyotes, are on a 12-game losing streak themselves, with only a small point difference separating them from the Canadiens.

With a regulation loss, the Canadiens would be in a position to secure a top 5 draft pick. While there is still a lot of hockey to be played, Tuesday's game is considered crucial in the race for the top draft pick.

For this reason, many fans lament that Martin St-Louis has confirmed that Samuel Montembeault will be in goal. Indeed, the coach is giving his team the best chance to win by putting in his top goaltender.


On the other hand, the Coyotes' best player will not be in uniform, raising questions. Clayton Keller will have to miss a few more days, according to head coach André Tourigny.
