`Crazy’ Canadiens familiar with staring down adversity

MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Canadiens are so familiar with staring down adversity, interim coach Dominique Ducharme refers to his team as “a crazy bunch of guys.” Ducharme was answering a question about the Canadiens potentially flying into a potential hurricane before Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final in Tampa, Florida. The Canadiens have already overcome COVID-19, the firing of a coach, players going down with injuries and being down 3-1 in a first-round series to Toronto. They are enjoying their deepest playoff run in 28 years. They can’t lose again or their season is over. Game 5 is Wednesday night.
