Habs/Penguins, Gallagher The Next Marchand And More...

Good Morning Addicts!

Max Pacioretty has tallied eight of his 16 points in his last
six games
The Canadiens host the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight hoping to carry over the success they had in February into March. The Canadiens finished February with a 9-2-3 record.

The Habs are also hoping to continue to find success against teams outside of their division. The Habs have absolutely dominated outside of the Northeast with an overwhelmingly impressive 10-0-1. Their sole loss was at the hands of the New York Islanders losing 4-3 in overtime.

Max Pacioretty has been on fire as of late scoring six goals in as many games after being held without a goal through his first ten. Patches has also notched two assists in that span and has become the offensive threat the team had expected and needed him to be.

Michael Ryder should be more effective on the ice now that he's had time to rest and practice with the team since the trade that brought him back to Montreal from Dallas in exhange for Erik Cole.

Rene Bourque and Raphael Diaz will both miss tonight's contest as they are out indefinately with concussions.
