Canadiens' Alex Galchenyuk: Opens with three-game assist streak

Galchenyuk notched a power-play assist in Tuesday's win over Pittsburgh, pushing his season-opening point streak to three games.

He's picked up an assist in all three of those contests, so 2012's No. 3 overall pick is off to a point-per-game start as he looks to build on last season's career-high 30 goals and 56 points. Galchenyuk is in a great spot on Montreal's top line next to Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher, so he has every chance to churn out a whole new set of career bests this year -- especially once the Habs get the stabilizing presence of Carey Price (illness) back on the ice.
