The Montreal Canadiens have played fantastic hockey over the first two months of the season. They are currently tied with the New York Rangers atop the NHL standings with 41 points, and a lot of their success is due in large part to two of their defensemen.

Hear more about the Canadiens from NESN’s Billy Jaffe and Dale Arnold in the video from “Bruins Face-Off Live” above.
