Despite being the last team to advance from Round 1, the Montreal Canadiens are the first team to make it to Round 3. Following a sequence of 11 games in 19 days, they will now have a few days of rest.

Their next opponent will be one of the Vegas Golden Knights and Colorado Avalanche, the top two teams from the regular season, each earning 82 points. Through four games, the home team has yet to lose, and now whichever team gets to two wins first moves on to the final four.
