BROSSARD, QUE. (AP) - The Montreal Canadiens believe that their future is bright. They just wish this season didn’t end as quickly as it did.

The Canadiens, surprising Eastern Conference finalists a year ago, had their sights set on getting at least that far this time around, but holding a better seed didn’t produce results nearly as good.

Instead of moving on to face top-seeded Washington in the second round of the NHL playoffs, the Canadiens were back home Thursday after a Game 7 overtime loss on Wednesday in Boston.
