The Canadiens (11-12-3) faced off against the Ottawa Senators last night and started the game a little shakily. Just over four minutes into the game, while short-handed, Senators forward Mark Stone intercepted an Alex Galchenyuk pass and sprung loose before beating Carey Price upstairs for his team-leading 14th goal of the...

Would Alex Galchenyuk Make Sense For Dallas?

Would Alex Galchenyuk Make Sense For Dallas?

Young center would add skill, scoring ability It wasn’t too long ago when Alex Galchenyuk was one of the bright young stars of the NHL. He scored a combined 50 goals from 2014-2016 and was just 20-years-old. It’s amazing how times have changed. Galchenyuk, for the most part, has been relegated to the fourth line as he continues to struggle with new Montreal Canadiens head coach Claude Julien. Julien was hired to replace Michel Therrien on Feb. 11. Before he was hired, Galchenyuk had 12 goals and 29 points. After Therrien was fired, he tallied just 5 goals in the last 24 games. That...

Canadiens vs. Predators 5 Takeaways: Shake it off

Canadiens vs. Predators 5 Takeaways: Shake it off

Despite late-game heroics, the Canadiens extend their losing streak 1. Look what Hu made me do Charles Hudon and Brendan Gallagher have been the two best players on the Canadiens for the last little while, and it isn’t even particularly close. Hudon has been outstanding no matter what line he has been placed on, and with the line of Max Pacioretty, Jonathan Drouin, and Alex Galchenyuk struggling, it might be wise to start treating Hudon like a top line player, and provide him with more opportunities to score. He led all Habs players in shot attempt percentage at five-on-five, and that is...
