Having said that they have made major improvements and ended up 14th in the league standings but because of the divisional aspect were not one of the 16 teams that made it to the playoffs.

Looking at the Habs year over year stats below; you see improvements in Penalty kill, Goals for and Goals against.

They struggled this year on the powerplay and this will need to be addressed in the off season.
