Stunning announcement involving Patrick Roy and the Montreal Canadiens

We just had major announcements for the Montreal Canadiens from Martin St-Louis and the Islanders from Patrick Roy.

Completely reversed, or flipped, announcements.

While Martin St-Louis' team is officially and mathematically eliminated from the 2024 NHL playoffs:

"The Canadiens are mathematically eliminated from the 2024 playoffs." - Via Eric Engels, from Sportsnet



It's completely the opposite for Patrick Roy and the New York Islanders.

Without even playing yesterday, the Islanders drastically increased their chances of making the playoffs, notably with the losses of the Detroit Red Wings, the Philadelphia Flyers, and the Washington Capitals. (all in regular time, moreover)

It was a perfect evening for the Long Island team.

See the current situation.

Martin St-Louis's Canadiens out of the playoffs / Patrick Roy's Islanders in the playoffs



They have climbed again in the standings, to the third position in the Metropolitan Division. Wow!

ISLANDERS - 83 POINTS IN 76 GAMES (IN PLAYOFFS)

PHILADELPHIA - 83 POINTS IN 77 GAMES (IN PLAYOFFS)

WASHINGTON - 82 POINTS IN 76 GAMES (OUT OF PLAYOFFS)

DETROIT - 82 POINTS IN 76 GAMES (OUT OF PLAYOFFS)

PITTSBURGH - 81 POINTS IN 76 GAMES (OUT OF PLAYOFFS)

Yes, it's extremely tight in this playoff race, and yes, the Islanders' chances are excellent.

To be continued!
