Petry contributed an assist in Tuesday's 6-1 win over Florida. Petry picked up a secondary assist on Tomas Tatar's first of two goals and also led all Canadiens skaters with 23:10 of ice time in the win. Since Feb. 23, he's found the scoresheet just three times, so Montreal certainly needs Petry to ramp up his offensive game from here on out. The assist Tuesday gives him 43 points in 77 appearances.
Petry scored a power-play goal and added an assist in a 6-3 loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday. With the two points, Petry snapped his five-game pointless streak. Despite the drought, though, Petry has three goals and 11 points in the last 19 games. Overall, he's very close to career highs in each scoring category with 11 goals and 40 points in 62 games.
Petry had an assist, one shot, one blocked shot and three hits in Wednesday's 2-1 win over Arizona. Petry moved in from the point to corral a loose puck, circled the net, then found a wide-open Mike Reilly, who scored the game-winning goal early in the third period. It was the 35th point for Petry, who is well within striking distance of eclipsing the career-high 42 points he had last season.
Petry scored an overtime goal and added an assist in Monday's win over the Bruins. Petry fired a shot in the first period that was clearly going wide of the net, but Brendan Gallagher redirected the puck back on target and past Tuukka Rask for the Habs first goal. Petry then played hero in overtime, swatting the puck out of midair and into the back of the net for the team's third win in the last four games. Petry is a true utility man, as he leads the team with 127 hits and ranks second with 70 blocked shots while marking the most points on the blue line (33).
Petry recorded a power-play assist in Thursday's 4-1 loss to the Blues. The Habs' second-best blueliner behind Shea Weber has recorded assists in consecutive contests, and for the season, now has 22 helpers to go along with nine goals. Petry, through 45 games, is averaging 0.69 points per game which is the highest mark of his career. If he continues on this pace, the 31-year-old will wind up finishing 2018-19 with career highs across the board.
