Canadiens Streak EndsI didn't see this mentioned in the press, to my surprise. When the Montreal Canadiens (which is pronounced, by the way, exactly as if it was spelled "Canadians", the accent is NOT on the final syllable) got unceremoniously bounced out of the playoffs by the Boston Bruins, it ended a streak in which they had won the Stanley Cup at least once per decade. They only won once in the 1980s and 1990s, but still that was an impressive accomplishment. Which had been sustained by all those great players throughout the years, and now this bunch messed it up, ha! Their best chance to win this decade was last year, but they choked, the details escape me.
