The Canadiens went into the game in last place in the overall NHL standings, two points behind Arizona and the expansion Seattle Kraken and lost 6-3 to the Coyotes.

Some Canadiens fans are hoping the team loses as many games a possible for the remainder of the season, improving the chances of getting the No. 1 overall pick at the NHL Draft on July 7 at the Bell Centre.

The game between the Canadiens and Coyotes reminded me of one between the Coyotes and Sabres on March 26, 2015, in Buffalo. A loss by Buffalo to the 29th-place Coyotes in what was a 30-team league at the time with only eight more games left in the regular season would help secure a last-place finish for the Sabres and the best odds of getting the No. 1 draft pick to select Connor McDavid or Jack Eichel — the highest-rated prospects.
