Edmonton Oilers 25-16-4
Edmonton began to gain momentum and achieved success over Toronto away with a score (6: 4). Earlier, the Oilers defeated the Rangers (7: 5) and Boston (4: 1), losing only Buffalo (2: 3) in overtime. Since there is very strong competition in the West, the team has again entered the playoff zone and is now on the sixth line.
Montreal Canadiens 25-13-4
Montreal lost seven games in a row, but it cannot be said that they had no chance of winning. For example, in the last four meetings, Canadians lost with a difference of only one puck. So, they lost to Tampa (1: 2), Pittsburgh (2: 3 OT), Winnipeg (2: 3) and Detroit (3: 4). The team of Claude Julien dropped to the 13th line of the Eastern Conference.
