Oilers-Canadiens matchup could be potential playoff preview

With a place in the Stanley Cup playoffs now secured, the Montreal Canadiens end their regular season against a potential postseason opponent when they host the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.

The Canadiens (24-21-10, 58 points) clinched their playoff berth in somewhat backhanded fashion on Monday, dropping a 4-3 overtime loss to Edmonton. The single point was enough, however, to send the Habs to the playoffs for the second consecutive season.

Montreal head coach Dominique Ducharme was proud of his team for overcoming such obstacles as multiple injuries, a nine-day COVID-19 hiatus in March and a compressed late-season schedule.
