Yes folks, in my opinion that is, I do believe that the Martin St. Louis effect for the Montreal Canadiens is starting to work.

For example, the cynical passing that the Habs team has adapted in the offensive zone, not giving the defense a chance to react, is by far ruthless.

It is still being perfected to a point that this signature part of St. Louis’s coaching game will take shape and be more noticeable down the stretch, however, it is a threat nevertheless.

Also, the scoring is picking up for the team as they are playing well as of mid-October into the present in November with character wins. Even though the team has had their fair share of losses in between those tilts, going 5-4-1 in their last 10 games.

What are the Montreal Canadiens doing to improve?

Overall, the team’s improvement is coming from an excellent source of understanding of each other’s on-ice presence, which means they are very well aware of where each player is heading near the puck.

As a result of that understanding, the Habs players are helping each other in tight situations and are making routine plays that are creating chances in the offensive zone on the forecheck and resulting in goals.

From a strong shooting ability to creating rebounds and scoring on the drive, the Canadiens have chemistry, whether it would be a single-man effort at center-ice in the offensive zone or from slick passing as I reiterate.

How will the Montreal Canadiens take charge?

The Canadiens are poised to breakout down the stretch with their excellent formation that they have adapted with current key players stepping up their game.

The momentum is going the team’s way in the games when they score first or lead by more than two goals, and they are constantly working for the puck.

The distractions in front of the net are going well for the Habs as well, as the size difference is helping with more physical plays shifting the team’s way.

Not to mention that the Canadiens are more of an offensive-defense trained team according to Martin St. Louis’s game which gives them the edge and speed towards making plays along the way.

For the Canadiens, the time is now to move forward down the stretch with a character game that produces wins this season.
