What Game 7 means for the Montreal Canadiens
Again, Montreal did not expect to get to this point after the Game 2 demolition by Toronto. That was followed up by tough losses in Games 3 and 4. Things looked bleak. Montreal, for better or for worse, stayed the course. It has been an interesting road.
Games 5 and 6 were won by Montreal thanks to Carey Price and timely goal scoring. Toronto controlled the play but could not finish in overtime. The Canadiens know they are playing with borrowed time or house money.
Whatever happens tonight probably buys Marc Bergevin more time along with Dominique Ducharme. Should it? That is a question for later.
Right now, Montreal plays a Toronto team that is unsure about this stage as much as they are. This sounds crazy. Yet, it is not.
Less feels to be more here.

Game sevens are special…
So, what are we going to do for this unexpected seventh game? Honestly, I am the first to admit that I am wrong. Everything in this series has been odd. It looked like Montreal was finished after Game 4. Yet, they are very much alive.
This final game could go a myriad of ways. Guessing outcomes proves to be like a roulette table. Montreal and Toronto illustrate the very fact that predictions are just taking stabs hoping to be right.
Our intention is to do a podcast via Fantasy Hockey X tonight. On the show, we will come on in progress. After, we will cover this Game 7 from a Montreal perspective and a fantasy hockey slant as well. Stayed tuned on social media for air time. The game begins tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET. Our plan is to start just after 9:00 or so.
Simply, here we go ladies and gentlemen! This is going to be something.
