The Montreal Canadiens are currently enjoying a Thanksgiving-week gift from the NHL schedule-makers, as they are in the midst of a four-day break between games. The Habs will return to the ice on Nov. 28 in Buffalo to kick-start a home-and-home series with the Sabres. 

The Canadiens are winning this season, with 33 points in 23 games. Based on that, you'd expect a solid plus number under goal differential and, by extension, some impressive individual plus/minus stats. 

But that hasn't really been the case. The Canadiens have lost just seven games but have been blown out in five of those, which has led to a mediocre plus-four goal differential. As a result of those lopsided losses, players' plus/minuses have taken a hit as well. 

There are, however, a couple of impressive numbers, notably from a pair of top-line forwards. But can they continue their excellent plus/minus pace to begin 2014-15? 

Here's a prediction of which five Montreal Canadiens will lead the team in plus/minus this season.
