2018–19 Montreal Canadiens season

The 2018–19 Montreal Canadiens season was the 110th season for the franchise that was founded on December 4, 1909, and their 102nd in the National Hockey League.[1] Despite a strong effort, the Canadiens failed to qualify for playoff contention,[2] marking the first time the team missed back-to-back postseasons since the 2000–01 season. Finishing the season with 96 points, the Canadiens also tied the record for most points by a non-qualifying NHL team, joining both the 2014–15 Boston Bruins and 2017–18 Florida Panthers.
