Tanev produced an assist, six blocked shots and two shots on net in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Canadiens.
Tanev earned the secondary assist on a Johnny Gaudreau goal in the final minute of the first period. The 31-year-old Tanev saw a game-high 28:01 of ice time after Noah Hanifin (undisclosed) exited early in the first period. More defensive responsibilities could fall to Tanev if Hanifin misses any additional time. Through 47 outings, Tanev has nine points, a plus-7 rating, 54 shots on net and 96 blocked shots.
