Tatar and Byron commanded the matchup versus Toronto’s stars

Photo by Francois Lacasse/NHLI via Two of Montreal’s key veterans found a way to help snap the Habs losing streak on Monday. With the trade deadline come and gone, and the Canadiens standing pat on adding forward help, the team needed a strong showing from some of their underperforming, or quieter veterans against a red-hot Maple Leafs team. They got that kind of performance from Paul Byron and Tomas Tatar. Byron has been doing quite well since returning from the taxi squad, having compiled seven points (2G, 5A) in his last eight games played, including a pair of...

Montreal Canadiens: What on Earth to do With Tatar and Danault

Tomas Tatar and Phillip Danault make up two thirds of Montreal’s number one line, and both of their contracts are up this year. A lot was made of the off season Marc Bergevin had this year, but this year might be even more important. It can be questioned if the line of Tatar – Danault […] Montreal Canadiens: What on Earth to do With Tatar and Danault - A Winning Habit - A Winning Habit - A Montreal Canadiens Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Recap: Tomas Tatar’s two goals lift Habs to victory

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports Though close on the scoreboard, a strong performance from the Canadiens saw them frustrate the rival Leafs. After losing Victor Mete to the waiver wire and acquiring Erik Gustaffson by trade earlier in the afternoon, the Montreal Canadiens took on the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre Monday night in their first game after the trade deadline. Though they gave up a 2-0 lead and couldn’t keep Auston Matthews off the board, a pair of goals from Tomas Tatar, 23 saves from Jake Allen, and an overall strong game from the Habs...

Montreal Canadiens: Brendan Gallagher Leaves With Injury

Montreal Canadiens top line of Phillip Danault, Tomas Tatar and Brendan Gallagher has gone through ups and downs this season. They have looked dominant at times, but also struggled to find the back of the opponent’s net with consistency.

The Canadiens’ top line is catching fire

Photo by André Ringuette/NHLI via Phillip Danault, Brendan Gallagher, and Tomas Tatar are heating up at the perfect time for their team. There has been a legitimate argument this year that the top line for the Montreal Canadiens was not the one it was expected to be. The line of Phillip Danault, Brendan Gallagher, and Tomas Tatar had been a powerhouse for this team, but they just didn’t seem to have the juice that some of the other trios have exhibited on the year. It got to the point where they even had to be split up for a time, as they just weren’t producing...

Bob Frid-USA TODAY Sports Canadiens properties around the globe were lighting the lamp with regularity. NHL Player of the Month: Brendan Gallagher In the opening two months, it looked like the magic was fading for the Canadiens’ most trusted trio; a line that ranked among the very best in terms of chances generated since Tomas Tatar’s arrival to the organization. The new off-season additions and young centres were stealing all the headlines, while Phillip Danault’s line struggled to produce.
