The Canadiens are next-to-last in the National Hockey League’s 15-team eastern division standings and need to claw their way up to eighth place to play in the playoffs.
To help the Habs reach this goal, the Archdiocese of Montreal placed ads in local newspapers asking fans to pray for the hockey club.
The ad shows the division standings with every team listed except the Canadiens. In eighth place it simply says, “Let Us Pray.”
In a statement, the church said it hoped to demonstrate that it is “close to the people… with a sense of humor!” “And you, do you still have hope?” it asked.
