Winning five straight good sign for Habs

Good Habit for Habs: The Canadiens have won five straight games to open this postseason. Since the 1967-68 expansion, there have been nine previous years in which the Canadiens won at least five straight playoff games (single season). They've advanced to the Stanley Cup finals in each of them (1968, 1969, 1973, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1989, 1993). They won the Cup in all but one of those years (1989).
