The Montreal Canadiens have done the improbable.  In defeating the Washington Capitals, the Montreal Canadiens not only advanced to round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, they have become the first team to come back from a 3-1 defecit against the President Cup winners and steal a victory.

Game 7 of the series saw Montreal jump out to a 1-0 lead after the first period.  The Habs played with heart in the second period, silencing the Capitals big line and then in the third period, the Canadiens took a 2-0 lead late into the 3rd period.

The Washington Capitals scored with a little over 2 minutes remaining to pull within a goal and with a late powerplay with only 1:44 left, Washington was unable to score.

The Canadiens move on to face the Penguins in round 2.
