Montreal Canadiens fans are voicing their displeasure on Twitter after getting swept in a four-game season series at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings, the team with the fewest points in the entire league.
Last night’s 4-3 loss was the Canadiens fifth straight, adding yet another unenviable consecutive strip that already includes two other eight-game losing streaks (so far).
The Red Wings’ win was only their 15th of the season, meaning over 25% of their wins this year have come against Montreal.
It’s also the first time in franchise history that the Detroit Red Wings have swept the Montreal Canadiens in a season series — Ouch.

Hoping the speedy return of captain Shea Weber would give the Habs a much-needed spark, the Canadiens turned a third period 3-1 lead into a rough 4-3 loss at Little Caesars Arena.
Though not yet mathematically eliminated (1.1% chance), the reality of the Canadiens making the playoffs this year is fanciful. As a result of the Habs latest loss, angry fans took to social media and turned #FIREJULIEN into a trend.
If you’re part of said angry mob, here’s hoping some of these GIFs will make you smile at the Canadiens for the first time in what feels like a long time.

Remember when Bergevin was the greatest French thing since the toast? Now he has single handedly ruined the #Habs and people out there still believe in him! He has never had a viable “plan” and never will. #firebergevin #FIREJULIEN #disgrace
