Canadiens welcome reeling Panthers

As the Montreal Canadiens look to solidify their hold on an Eastern Conference wild card slot, they can eliminate another rival from the race when the Florida Panthers visit Montreal on Tuesday.

While the Panthers (33-31-12) are mathematically still alive for the wild card, losses in four of their last five games have all but officially ended their playoff chances. Florida's season-long defensive issues again doomed the team in its last two games, a 7-3 loss to the Bruins on Saturday and a 7-5 loss to the Maple Leafs on Monday.

"It's embarrassing the way we've played the last three or four games, me included," defenseman Aaron Ekblad said after Monday's game. "It's unfortunate, and as part of the leadership group I take full responsibility for it. The best we can do is learn from it and move on."
