Montreal Canadiens Organizational Players of November

Montreal Canadiens Organizational Players of November

Photo by David Kirouac/Icon Sportswire via Two Canadians and two Swedes make up the list of last month’s top performers. Montreal Canadiens Player of the Month: Shea Weber In a month that ended with the Canadiens on a seven-game losing streak and the third-most goals against, you wouldn’t expect a defenceman to be the team’s top performer, but that was the case in November. The captain finished one point back of Tomas Tatar for the highest total in the month, with 12 in 13 games. Half of them were goals, and he was held pointless just three times. Sure his offensive game was...

[Highlight] Tomas Tatar’s second goal of the games ties it back up

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/ More trickery from Nick Suzuki created the play. Getting a power play for a chance to get the game back on even terms, a perfect no-look seam pass from Nick Suzuki fooled every Flyer on the ice, and Tomas Tatar just had to hit the open net to score his second of the game. Suzuki to Tuna on the power play and it's a tied game. pic.twitter.com/eKVxTPTHSs— Patrik Bexell (@Zeb_Habs) November 30, 2019

Shea Weber’s shot stalled on its way to the net, but Tomas Tatar was right there to drive it to its destination.

Every point matters to make the playoffs, and the Canadiens know that better than anyone

Every point matters to make the playoffs, and the Canadiens know that better than anyone

Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via There are no style points in the standings. When Tomas Tatar took the Nick Suzuki pass and fired it into the net, it not only tied the game, it assured the Canadiens of a point — assuming nothing crazy happened in the final minute — in a game they were flat in throughout. They ended up getting two. Being flat happens in an 82-game season. Especially in front of a quieter-than-normal home crowd (the first snowstorm of the year and a early-week matchup against a team with which the fan base has relative indifference isn’t a great combination.)...

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports With few offensive looks all night, Suzuki creates one when the Habs needed it most. The Canadiens had just allowed the go-ahead goal, but at six-on-five they found the 2-2 marker, thanks to great cross-ice pass from Nick Suzuki to Tomas Tatar.

Recap: Saturday Night’s Alright

Recap: Saturday Night’s Alright

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports An efficient first period is enough to overcome Los Angeles on home ice. After Thursday’s overtime loss in Philadelphia, Claude Julien threw his lines into the blender, and out came a Montreal Canadiens team looking vastly different from anything we have seen so far this season. Brett Kulak was back in the lineup after being a healthy scratch for six straight games, replacing Mikey Reilly as Cale Fleury’s partner. Jonathan Drouin took the spot left of Phillip Danault on the team’s starting unit, demoting Tomas Tatar to third-line duties. Centring that...
