Ryan O'Reilly

THW Live: How About Those Montreal Canadiens

The Montreal Canadiens have been nothing short of amazing during the first portion of the 2015-16 NHL season.

They lead the lead in goals, their goaltending has been nearly perfect and the defense is playing at levels we haven’t seen before. However, the big question on everyone’s mind is whether the momentum can be sustained.

THW Live tackles that subject as Mike Straw speaks with Canadiens writer John Benedetti about the team, and if anyone at all even has a shot at catching them in the Atlantic Division this season.
