      Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Move to first line triggers goal

      Galchenyuk was moved from second-line center to first-line right wing in the third period of Friday night's game and scored the game-tying goal in a 3-2 shootout win over the Devils, Hockey Inside Out reports. Head coach Michel Therrien's decision to replace Devante Smith-Pelly on the top line worked out as Max Pacioretty sprung Galchenyuk, who split two defenders and beat Cory Schneider with a back-hander. Galchenyuk and the second line has played well the last five games, so we'll have to see if Therrien is willing to upset the chemistry of that unit and move Galchenyuk to the top line. We'll learn soon as the Canadiens and Devils are back at it Saturday night in Montreal.

      Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Keeps producing for Habs

      Galchenyuk scored the game-tying goal and also potted one in the shootout Friday night, helping the Canadiens to a 3-2 win over the Devils. Galchenyuk beat Cory Schneider glove side in regulation, so he went that way again in the shootout frame and succeeded once more, making Schneider appear dizzy from tracking so much stick movement. With Brendan Gallagher out about six weeks due to a hand injury, Galchenyuk should be relied upon more heavily. The Wisconsin native now has four goals and 11 assists in 23 games this season.

      Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Starting to warm up again

      Galchenyuk scored a goal for the second straight game and added a power-play assist Wednesday in a win over the Rangers. That's now four points in the last three games for Galchenyuk, who hadn't scored a goal since late October prior to Sunday's game and had just three points in the nine-game stretch preceding this little hot streak. Consistency (or lack thereof) is still an issue, but we're starting to see more nad more flashes of the stud potential Galchenyuk brings to the table.

      Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Leads team in FO percentage

      Galchenyuk had an assist and won 12-of-19 face offs in Tuesday night's 3-0 win over the Blues. Galchenyuk's the leader in face-off percentage among the team's regular center-men, having won 45-of-86 (52.3%) through seven games. In the defensive zone, he's 17-of-28 (60.7%). Face-offs have not been a strong area for Galchenyuk when Montreal previously experimented with him at center, but he's performed well at the dot early on.

      Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Three helpers help carry Habs

      Galchenyuk set up three Montreal goals in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Bruins. One came on the power play. This could really be the breakout year for the guy Edmonton should have taken over Nail Yakupov. He now has four points (one goal, three assists) in two games so far.

      Analysis: A fine start to the season for Alex Galchenyuk, who was set up by d-men Andrei Markov and P.K. Subban just past the midway point of the third period.

Head coach Michel Therrien said he wasn't worried about Galchenyuk's faceoff performance, which is at 39.1 percent in the preseason. Therrien can always have Lars Eller, who's skating at left wing on Galchenyuk's line, fill in for faceoffs if need be.
