The 1991–92 Montreal Canadiens season was the Canadiens' 83rd season. The season saw the Canadiens place first in the Adams Division and make it to the second round of the playoffs, losing to the Boston Bruins in the Adams Division final. The sweep cost coach Pat Burns his job as he was let go after the season.


Pre-seasonEdit

The Canadiens changed their personnel in the off-season. Andrew Cassels, Tom Chorske, Stephane Richer and Ryan Walter were traded. The Canadiens picked up Kirk Muller and Roland Melanson.

Regular seasonEdit

The team started well, losing just three times in October. At New Year's, the team led the league overall standings with 54 points. In February, the Canadiens reacquired Chris Nilan three years after he left Montreal. In the last 17 games of his NHL career, the veteran enforcer adds 74 penalty minutes to raise his overall total with the Canadiens to 2,248 minutes, the most in team history. In March, the team traded Petr Svoboda to Buffalo in return for Kevin Haller.

March was dismal for the team, winning only four of 11 games. On April 1, the league's players went on a ten day strike. The regular season resumed and the Canadiens continued to struggle, slipping to fifth-place overall, but win the Adams Division. The team played well defensively, winning the Jennings Trophy, Patrick Roy winning the Vezina Trophy and Guy Carbonneau winning the Selke Trophy and finished +60 in goals.
