It’s so nuts how a goalie who just had a historically good Vezina season can get replaced in a Game 7 and get outplayed by his backup. The NHL playoffs are wild

If there’s one team in the NHL that has interested CH fans since the start of the playoffs, it’s the Florida Panthers, and not for their style of play.
The Canadiens have held the Panthers’ top pick in the upcoming draft since the Ben Chiarot trade last year.
Just when the season seemed to be in the bag for Paul Maurice’s team, they won six of their last eight games to clinch the final playoff spot.
All this after Keith Tkachuk criticized the team’s sluggishness. Since then, the Floridian team has played with no qualms, pushing the Bruins to the limit in the final game.
With a Boston win, the CH would secure the 17th pick in the next auction, and if not, they’d still have to wait.
– Interesting reflection.
