Even before training camp started, most observers were putting the Tricolore in the bottom of the NHL. After the preseason games, hopes of a good season were dashed.

However, it is with a record of four wins and as many losses that Martin St-Louis' men will arrive in St-Louis for Saturday night's game. Impressive for a team that was supposed to be in the bottom half of the league, even though there are only eight games left.
You can say that players like Nick Suzuki and Cole Caufield have helped a lot to have this record, but the turning point is really defensively. In fact, the Tricolore is eighth in the league in shorthanded shots with an 84% success rate.
That's still an incredible result considering they are missing two veterans on defense in Joel Edmundson and Michael Matheson. Jake Allen, Samuel Montembeault and the young defensemen have held the fort so far.
