Alexander Romanov and Victor Mete are finding their game

Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via The Canadiens’ third pairing’s play is going to force some tough decisions down the road. Before the season, people wondered whether Alexander Romanov would be ready to make the jump to NHL regular.

Eager to prove his detractors wrong, Romanov charged out of the box in the first couple of games, but his performance dropped along with Montreal’s own struggles. Victor Mete’s agent...
