Galchenyuk picked up an assist and had two shots on net over 16:11 of ice time in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

Technically, it was a secondary assist, but Galchenyuk's slick pass to Shea Weber initiated the scoring chance that was finished when Paul Bryon banged home a rebound off a Weber sortie. It was his first point in four games, and he's been held goal-less in seven straight. The 27-year-old Wisconsin native can dazzle opponents with his creativity and has meshed well with the equally bedeviling Jonathan Drouin, but neither is considered a sniper and that's what the Canadiens (2.42 goals per game, 30th) really need right now.
