The Montreal Canadians finished second in a race involving seven clubs in the North Section, but a look in the rearview mirror was in order.

With a 9-4-2 record and a total of 20 points, CH has 19, 18 and 17 points, particularly the Winnipeg Jets, Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames. This time, however, the Oilers played two more games than the Canadians, the Jets and the Flames.
- Listen to Jean-Charles Lazoi’s column with Benoit Dutrizak on QUB Radio:
“We had the win, we came here to get these two points [au classement]Jets forward Mark Schiffel said on the NHL website after Monday night’s 6-5 victory over the Oilers. We have those points, so it’s really important. ”
On Wednesday, unlike the Hobbs, the other six Canadian clubs will be in action. Another duel between the Jets and Oilers in Edmonton is again very interesting for the standings. Jets (9-5-1) are particularly likely to overtake CH. In addition, in the event of a win over the Vancouver Cancs, Flames (8-6-1) is also likely to approach the Canadian seriously. Finally, the Toronto Maple Leafs, at the top of the division, are competing again against the Ottawa Senators, who are trailing.
Each point is counted
In this steady battle, despite losing 4-3 at the hands of the Flames in overtime, Canucks also consoled the idea of collecting a valuable point on Monday. Forward Brock Bozer, with his 11th goal of the season, pushed both teams into extra time by hitting the target with a shorthand in 31 seconds to go into the third period.
“Achieving a late goal makes you feel good on the bench,” agreed Travis Green, head coach of Connex. Most guys said getting to the point is a big goal. ”
With just 15 points from 19 games, the Knox could not get the start they wanted, but a winning streak could quickly put them in the race. Keep in mind that only the top four clubs in this category will qualify for the next playoffs.
