    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Extends point streak to three

    Galchenyuk had five shots and scored a goal in Wednesday night's 4-2 loss to the Sabres. He has a point in each of the last three games. The line with Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher was the best combination Montreal had going in the game. The three combined for 13 shots and several scoring opportunities. Unfortunately, who knows how long the trio will be together. Line combinations have been ephemeral during Montreal's current slide (1-8-1 in last 10).

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Scores in Tuesday's loss

    Galchenyuk scored a power-play goal in Tuesday night's 5-2 loss to Columbus. He had six shots and 5:56 TOI on the power play. Galchenyuk had strung together a nice scoring run beginning at the end of December, but he's been on the skids since. Tuesday night's goal was his first point of any kind in nine games. The good news is that he's on the first-unit power play and has been a more active shooter since his return to the wing in mid-January.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Moves back to wing

    Galchenyuk was moved back to wing in Montreal's previous game and head coach Michel Therrien said he'll "continue the experiment" in Saturday's road game against the Blues, Hockey Inside Out reports. Galchenyuk, who had won just two of nine faceoffs, was moved to left wing on a line with David Desharnais and Paul Byron, the line that produced Montreal's lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the Blackhawks. "I really like what I saw from those two together, David and Chucky," Therrien said. "Those two guys played together on the power play and yesterday we're trying to push. I like what I saw."

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Scores in Tuesday's loss

    Galchenyuk scored his 10th goal of the season in Tuesday night's 4-3 loss to the Flyers. Galchenyuk's offense has picked up, having registered points (three goals, three assists) in six of the last seven games. The flip side is him being minus-4 in those seven games. He's still only 22-years-old, so there's time for him to develop into a consistent top-6 forward, but Galchenyuk's in his fourth NHL season and the expected growth in his overall game hasn't happened yet.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Scores lone goal Monday

    Galchenyuk broke Pekka Rinne's shutout with a third-period, power-play goal in Monday night's 5-1 loss to the Predators. The goal snapped a nine-game scoreless drought. Galchenyuk struggled at the dot, winning just one of eight faceoffs, but had seven shots on net and was one of the few Habs generating offensive pressure.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Minus-2 on new line

    Galchenyuk had two shots on goal and was minus-2 in Wednesday night's 3-1 loss to the Bruins. He also blocked five shots and was 50 percent (10-of-20) on draws. This was Galchenyuk's first game as the center on the top line, but it didn't work out well as both he and Max Pacioretty were on the ice for two of Boston's three goals.

    Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Moving to top line

    Galchenyuk will center Montreal's top line beginning Wednesday night against the Bruins, the Montreal Gazette reports. Both Galchenyuk and Sven Andrighetto will move up and join Max Pacioretty, who leads the Habs with 13 goals. The Canadiens haven't been scoring lately, and head coach Michel Therrien has been tinkering with his lines over the past two weeks because of it.
