37. It would certainly give them a boost.
Unlikely enough to form a majority government, since they have almost no chance of winning a single seat in Quebec, and that's unlikely to change whatever happens. (Writing off Quebec, they would need to win better than two-thirds of the seats in the rest of the country to form a slim majority. That's as good as impossible.) But a minority government could well be in the cards in those awful circumstances.

A major attack would certainly dash the hopes of the resurgent NDP, which is viewed as the weakest on defense and seeks greater disengagement from the US.

I'll be virtually holding my breath until the election's over. Too bad we still don't know when it will be held.
