The 2020–21 Montreal Canadiens season is the 112th for the club that was established on December 4, 1909, and their 104th season as a franchise in the National Hockey League.

Due to the Canada–U.S. border restrictions brought in as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Canadiens were re-aligned with the other six Canadian franchises into the newly-formed North Division. The league's 56 game season is to be played entirely within the new divisions, meaning that Montreal and the other Canadian teams will play an all-Canadian schedule for the 2020–21 regular season as well as the first two rounds of the 2021 Stanley Cup playoffs.

On May 10, 2021, the Canadiens clinched a playoff berth following a 4–3 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers.[1] In the First Round, the Canadiens successfully overcame a 3–1 series deficit to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games.[2] In the Second Round, the Canadiens swept the Winnipeg Jets in four games.[3] As a result of reseeding, they will compete against the Vegas Golden Knights in the Stanley Cup Semifinals for the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl.[4][5]
