News
Weber posted a power-play goal and an even-strength assist in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers.

He drove all of Montreal's regulation offense while getting on the scoresheet for only the second time in his last 10 games. Weber got off to an insanely hot start this year, but like most of the rest of the Habs, he's cooled off in a big way. In fact, he has just 17 points and a minus-4 rating in his past 40 games; that's low-end production for a fantasy blueliner, and it's torture for owners who dished out a pretty penny to acquire Weber's services on draft day.

News
Price will make his fifth consecutive start in Toronto on Saturday.

The 29-year-old backstop has been mediocre in his last four starts, netting a .917 save percentage, a 2.46 GAA, and a brutal record of 1-3-0. The Canadiens are struggling to score much anyways, which waters down the fantasy value of Price's good games. The Maple Leafs have some serious offensive threats, making this a difficult matchup for Price. His inconsistent fantasy value makes him better suited for deeper leagues.

News
Byron beat the Rangers' Henrik Lundqvist for the game-winning goal in Tuesday's shootout, but he didn't hit the scoresheet over his 15:03 of ice time.

Byron also took as many shots in the shootout as he did in all of regulation, which is to say: one. The 27-year-old forward has missed the scoresheet in nine straight games and owns just two points through his last 16 contests, so fantasy owners are likely to find more appeal elsewhere.

News
Shaw scored a goal on two shots, one hit, and had a two-minute penalty over 15:45 of ice time in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Rangers.

Shaw hadn't put one past a goalie since Jan. 24, a stretch of 10 games before his wraparound beat New York's Henrik Lundqvist. It was a good sequence for Shaw who earlier in the shift made a nice play to keep the puck inside the Rangers' zone. It was a reminder of the good that Shaw can provide. Since returning from a knee injury 17 games ago, Shaw has made more headlines for his dumb penalties than offensive contributions (two goals, three assists).

News
Pateryn was in the active lineup Tuesday after Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin let it be known the defenseman is available, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. He had one shot on goal, two blocked shots and five hits over 13:04 of ice time on the third defensive pair.

Pateryn, who had been a regular healthy scratch since Montreal acquired Nikita Nesterov, got caught up in in a social-media imbroglio involving his wife, who tweeted an uncomplimentary assessment of Montreal's past and present coaches. The incident has motivated the organization to move the 26-year-old blueliner, so his presence in the lineup Wednesday was seen as a showcase. Pateryn was never a favorite of former coach Michel Therrien and his status didn't change when Claude Julien was hired to replace Therrien.

News
Lehkonen skated with Alex Galchnenyuk and Brendan Gallagher during Friday's practice, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Lehkonen, who hasn't made a scoresheet in the last 13 games, had been on a line with Tomas Plekanec and Andrew Shaw, but Montreal coach Claude Julien tinkered with his combinations at Friday's practice. The coach is hoping the line-tinkering leads to more offense for Montreal, which has been goal-challenged during a 2-7-1 run during the month of February. Julien lauded the rookie's hockey IQ, his ability to make plays and his dedication to both ends of the ice. Placing him on a line with more offensively skilled forwards for Saturday night's matchup in Toronto is Lehkonen's reward.
