Evans scored a goal on three shots and had one hit in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Devils.
Evans patiently waited at the point while mates dislodged the puck from the corner. Corey Schueneman fed the forward who gripped-and-ripped a slapshot over Andrew Hammond's left shoulder for the Canadiens' second goal and his 10th of the season. Evans stopped a six-game goal drought with the tally and now has points in two straight. The 25-year-old center has 23 points, 110 shots, 82 hits, 33 blocked shots and 20 PIM while averaging 15:39 of ice time over 62 games.
