Canadiens' Andrei Markov: Collects first point of season

Markov handed out an assist and went plus-2 in Tuesday's 4-0 romp against the Penguins.

As promised, his even-strength minutes have been dialed back a bit, but Markov is still seeing massive power-play time -- more than 10 minutes in total over the first three games. Tuesday's helper was his first point of the year, but the 37-year-old blueliner is still a significant fantasy asset as long as he can stay healthy, as he has recently. After struggling with knee problems in his early 30s, he's only missed a total of two games over the last four seasons.
