Having been riddled with injuries and inconsistent play, the Montreal Canadiens have not been enjoying a very enviable season thus far.
After an eight-day layoff, the club returns to action tonight against the first-place Washington Capitals hoping to build off a subpar 22-21-7 record to open the NHL’s second half.

The Canadiens are currently 10 points out of a playoff spot, 12th out of 16th in the Eastern Conference, and statistically, have a 3.3% chance of making the playoffs, according to Hockey Reference’s Playoff Probabilities Report.
In an effort to perhaps reignite the fans after the bye-week, the Canadiens’ social media team sent out a tweet that wasn’t well received by the Habs’ faithful.
It seems like the Canadiens aren’t the only team struggling within the organization.

Gonna be so shitty to watch this team almost make the playoffs and get the 15th overall pick two seasons in a row when it’s pretty clear they should be rebuilding
