We had never written an article on this because it seemed obvious that the problem was not at all from him, but let's remember that a few months ago, many experts and fans of the Montreal Canadiens were calling for the dismissal of Alex Burrows.

We can think of Craig Button, who criticized Burrows at the beginning of the season, but there are many others who did the same.
The power play was going very poorly.
«The coach in charge of the power play is Alex Burrows. He was hired by the Canadiens on February 24, 2021. If we look at the team's power play record since his hiring, it's not very shiny. Indeed, since his hiring, the Canadiens have had the second-worst power play in the NHL.» - From an article dated about a year ago.

In short, since then, everything has changed. Many talked about it when things were going badly, so let's talk about it now that things are going well and congratulate Alex Burrows!

The Canadiens have the 8th best power play in the entire NHL for nearly three months

He is talking here about Montreal's power play:
«Eighth best in the NHL since December 13, operating at nearly 25% and looking very dangerous every time it hits the ice.

A significant evolution for the future, and it will only improve with the players to come.» - Eric Engels

He continues:
«The Canadiens finally have a power play unit to be feared.

It's been years since we could say that, but the sample size is now large enough to definitively say. The CH has a dangerous power play.»

This is big for the Canadiens! It must be said that Burrows now has much better ammunition, and he is taking advantage of it!
Cole Caufield is healthy, Mike Matheson is healthy, and Juraj Slafkovsky is healthy. (in addition to already being a 2.0 version of last year's Slaf)
Bravo, Alex Burrows!
