  • Canadiens' Tomas Plekanec: Buries winner in OT
    By RotoWire Staff

    Plekanec scored the game-winner in overtime in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Devils. He finished with four shots, two hits and a blocked shot in 16:51 of ice time. Plekanec had gone 17 straight games without tickling the twine before he buried Thursday's winner. The Czech center went five-hole on New Jersey's Corey Schneider, finishing off a sublime feed from Charles Hudon, who won a puck battle with three Devils along the boards. The 34-year-old Plekanec has fit nicely on a line with Hudon and Montreal's leading goal-scorer Brendan Gallagher, but has just four goals in 32 games.

  • Canadiens' Tomas Plekanec: Assists piling up
    By RotoWire Staff

    Plekanec had an assist, two shots on goal and a hit over 17:08 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Blues. That's three straight games with at least one assist and four in the last five for Plekanec, whose offense has been boosted by linemates Brendan Gallagher and Charles Hudon. The 34-year-old pivot has 13 points (three goals, 10 assists) in 29 games, outpacing his desultory 2016-17 season (28 points, 78 games).

  • Canadiens' Tomas Plekanec: Collects two assists
    By RotoWire Staff

    Plekanec dished out a pair of assists in Thursday's win over the Red Wings. Plekanec has struggled to produce consistently this season, managing just three goals and 11 points in 27 contests. The second-line center rarely plays on the power play these days and is trending downwards after a 10-goal 2016-17 campaign. Still, he does still have some gas left in the tank despite being 35 years old, and his 21 PIM and top-six role at least make him valuable in some deeper leagues.

  • Plekanec had two assists and a rare five-minute major in Thursday's 5-4 loss to Arizona. In a bit of irony, the Coyotes scored a game-tying goal in the third period while Plekanec, Montreal's best penalty killer, was serving time for his major infraction. The defense-first forward has experienced an uptick in production since he joined a line with Brendan Gallagher and Charles Hudon. Over the past nine games, the 35-year-old Czech has seven points (two goals, five assists) and is plus-9.

  • Plekanec and linemate Brendan Gallagher have been key pieces in the Canadiens' recent surge, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports. Plekanec and Gallagher both struggled mightily last season, but they've been prominent in Montreal's revival. After a slow start to the season, the Canadiens have won five of their last six games, which roughly tracks with the line changes implemented by head coach Claude Julien. One of the tweaks was putting Plekanec and Gallagher together on what's considered the third line. Over the Habs' six-game run, Plekanec has two goals and three assists while Gallagher checks in with four goals and three assists. Additionally, Plekanec is getting more ice time, averaging 17:20 over the last six games, compared to 14:45 over the first 10.
