Canadiens' Alexander Radulov: Tallies first goal since NHL return

Radulov scored his first NHL goal -- a power-play tally -- since the 2011-12 season in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Pittsburgh. He also accumulated six penalty minutes.

If you want to delve even deeper into the past, it was his first power-play goal in North America since way, way back on Dec. 8, 2007, as a member of the Predators. All that time he spent in the box limited his ice time to just 14:39, but it didn't stop Radulov from getting in on the scoring action. It remains unclear just what Radulov's numbers will look like when all's said and done this year, but expectations remain high in Montreal, as the Habs' offense struggled mightily last season and the Russian winger is a crucial top-six piece.
