It’s Not Just Now, As You Can See
I used to track Montreal’s win-loss record on schedules – red for a win, red dash for a tie, and blue for a loss.
Below is my schedule from the 1966-67 season, the year Toronto last won the Cup, and although Montreal had a good team and made it to the finals, you can see that they endured slumps like now. In November there’s lots of blue as the team lost seven of ten games. And there are other examples throughout.
