Montreal Canadiens fans are rejoicing after the team clinched a spot in the 2017 NHL playoffs.
It’s a big difference from last season, when the Habs were eliminated from a post-season appearance after a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers in March.
This season, Montreal (46-25-9, 101 points) topped the Atlantic Division and will go head-to-head with the Rangers (47-27-6, 100 points), who enter the playoffs as the first Eastern wild card.
During the regular season, the Rangers lost all three games to the Canadiens.
