Toffoli, Canadiens ignoring doubters: 'Feels like nobody believes in us'

As they await their Round 3 opponent, Tyler Toffoli and the Montreal Canadiens are perfectly fine dismissing the doubters of their unexpected playoff journey.

"It feels like nobody believes in us," Toffoli said Monday after the Montreal Canadiens swept the Winnipeg Jets in the second round, according to Sportsnet's Eric Engels. "The only people we have are ourselves, our fans, who are definitely behind us - with the limited number of fans in the building, it sounded a lot bigger than it was - and our friends and family," he said.

"We're going to stick together." We're playing as a team and winning games while having a good time."

Toffoli, 29, scored the game-winning goal in overtime in Game 4 to advance the Canadiens to the semifinals, where they will face either the Colorado Avalanche or the Vegas Golden Knights. The thrilling goal gave Montreal their seventh consecutive playoff victory, extending a record of 437:34 dating back to Game 4 of the Canadiens' first-round series against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"These guys are playing as brilliantly as any team has ever played," stated Carey Price, the goalkeeper for the Montreal Canadiens.
