News
Plekanec assisted on the game's opening goal, then scored twice to help deliver a 4-2 win over Tampa on Tuesday.

That's two huge explosions for Plekanec in a three-game span, as he ripped off four points Saturday against Edmonton, with a quiet effort against Carolina sandwiched in between. Even with Montreal's offense struggling on the whole, Plekanec is in the midst of a great season, on pace to clear 60 points for the fourth time in his career. Just think how good his stats would look if not for the 28-game stretch in which the veteran pivot accumulated only two goals and nine assists to go with a minus-13 rating -- a span that correlates closely to the absence of Carey Price (leg) from the lineup.

News
Weise will skate on the fourth line when the Habs face the Sabres in Buffalo on Friday, Hockey Inside Out reports. "He's got to be more hungry," head coach Michel Therrien said about Weise. "He's the type of player that when he's hungry he's fast on forecheck, he's winning battles, he's making good decisions with the puck. Last game, I didn't quite like his focus, so that's why we made the change."

Weise, who's gotten some top-six time this season and is having a career year with 12 goals and 10 assists, has just one goal and one assist in the 11 games since returning from an upper-body injury. He had been on a line with Max Pacrioretty and David Desharnais -- and could still get back there said Therrien -- but he'll be replaced by Sven Andrighetto on Friday.

News
Desharnais rang up two assists in Friday's 6-4 loss to Buffalo.

The assists snapped a seven-game point drought for the center, who was one of four Habs with two points in the losing effort. Desharnais looked pretty good with Max Pacioretty and new linemate Sven Andrighetto, so hopefully this could be the start of a nice little run of production. To date, Desharnais has nine goals and 17 assists in 56 games.

Injuries
Lower Body - Out until at least Feb 15 (Updated - 2/11/16)
News
Petry (lower body) is now listed on injured reserve, Marc Antoine Godin of Montreal's La Presse reports.

Per Arpon Basu of LNH.com, Petry will not travel with the Canadiens as they're bound for a three-game road trip that begins with Friday's match against the Sabres. Habs coach Michel Therrien did not say exactly when Petry will return, but indicated that the defenseman will miss "the next few games." With Petry unavailable, look for Greg Pateryn to fill in on the blue line Saturday, albeit in a role not conducive to putting up fantasy stats.

Brendan Gallagher, # 11

News
Gallagher delivered a goal on five shots as well as an assist and a plus-3 rating Tuesday in a 4-2 win over Tampa Bay.

That's two near-identical stat lines in the last three games for Gallagher, who picked up a goal, an assist and a plus-3 in Saturday's win over Edmonton, though he only put two shots on goal in that one. He's got a trio of two-point efforts in his last seven contests, but has failed to get on the board in the other four, so the Habs have to be hoping for more consistency from Gallagher moving forward -- after all, he's one of the team's precious few offensive threats.

Ben Scrivens, # 40

News
Scrivens got the hook Friday after allowing three goals on eight shots in a 6-4 loss to the Sabres.

So much for Scrivens' hot streak -- a three-game stretch where he allowed just four total goals, all of which were wins. Mike Condon didn't do much better in relief, allowing two goals on 13 shots in just under two full periods of play, so it's anybody's guess who head coach Michel Therrien will turn to for Montreal's next game Monday at Arizona.

News
Galchenyuk scored twice in Friday's 6-4 loss to Buffalo.

Both snipes came in the second period on the power play. Galchenyuk has been rolling lately with seven points in his last seven games -- a span in which he's also fired 28 shots on goal -- and is up to 14 goals and 34 points in 56 games this year.

News
Condon entered Friday night's 6-4 loss to the Sabres early in the second period after starter Ben Scrivens surrendered his third goal in eight shots.

After Scrivens rolled up a .959 save percentage in three consecutive wins, it looked like Condon was going to spend some time on the bench, but Scrivens didn't have it Friday. Condon wasn't much better, giving up two goals in 13 shots (.846), but now that we know Scrivens hasn't miraculously turned himself into Carey Price, Condon should get back into the goalie rotation. Perhaps as soon as Monday night in Arizona.
