The Canadiens are showing signs of improvement, but hiccups along the way are to be expected.

The Montreal Canadiens have had both good and bad in the Dominique Ducharme interim-era. On Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets they had both. Jared Book and Patrik Bexell discuss the week that was, and what is to come.

The episode starts with Patrik discussing the news around Thomas Greiss. Greiss has been left off of the German hockey roster for several years. Reasons for that have started to come out, including disturbing references to Germany’s past on some of his masks.

They then talk about the Calgary Flames firing head coach Geoff Ward, making it their second straight season with a coaching change, less than a season after making him the full-time head coach. The pressure of the North Division is getting to several general managers.

Then they discuss the Canadiens, their game against the Jets, their troubles in overtime on three-on-three, and whether the signs of improvement are enough to turn their season around.
