Finally getting powerplays, and it just doesn't matter.
The Habs are facing elimination tonight at the Bell Centre. If they lose, it would be the quickest the team has dropped in the first round since 2009.
Montreal looks more like the team that manhandled the Senators in Games 1 and 2, but they weren't rewarded for it.

The Habs open their first round series against the Senators on home ice at the Bell Centre tonight. I'll be taking in the action in person before hopping a flight to a short vacation.
In an unusual turn of events, we'll be covering the final game of the NHL season even though it doesn't involve the Habs directly.
Story of the game: Francis Bouillon steps on the puck and falls, allowing a harmless play to become a scoring chance and gives the Jets a 1-0 lead.
The Canadiens can eliminate the Jets from the playoff picture and clinch home ice advantage at the same time with a win tonight. Are they up to it?
The period started much as the first ended, but a couple of good shifts have allowed the Habs to claw back into this game.
Can the Canadiens stop bleeding out and get back to what they were? Maybe playing a team they've beaten twice can get them back on track.
