Montreal Canadiens Top 5 All Time Coaches: #4 Pat Burns

The Montreal Canadiens have entered the quietest time on the calendar. While there is little to look forward to in the month of August, we decided to take a look back at some of the greatest coaches in franchise history. We continue the countdown of the five best coaches in Canadiens history with their fourth ranked head coach, Pat Burns.

Pat Burns was hired as the head coach of the Canadiens in 1988 after one season with their AHL affiliate in Sherbrooke. The Canadiens were coming off a 103 point regular season, but moved on from Jean Perron who helped guide them to a Stanley Cup just two years prior.
