As far as reports go, Michel Therrien’s job remains secure. Maybe a little less so, as losses burn a little bit more for the Canadiens when they come against the Bruins.

Boston beat Montreal 4-1 on Tuesday, giving the B’s three straight wins. They solidified their hold over one of the East’s wild card spots, even if the margin of error remains fairly minimal.

From margins of error to a comedy of errors: just about everything related to the Habs is unsettling, including their spot outside of the East’s playoff picture. It’s a mess that likely would have been unfathomable back in October, when the Habs seemed to be running away with the East’s crown.

Montreal is now on a five-game losing streak, with a mere standings point earned. They’ve lost six of eight games in 2018 alone.

The scene seems even grimmer according to onlooker’s such as Arpon Basu of LNH.com.

Yikes, just yikes. Are we absolutely certain Therrien’s job isn’t in jeopardy?
