Weber tallied a power-play goal, two penalty minutes and two hits during Thursday's 2-1 loss to the Capitals. Weber's marker late in the first frame turned out to be the high water mark for the Habs, who were unable to solve Capitals netminder Braden Holtby the rest of the way. The 33-year-old has mustered five goals, 10 points and a plus-5 rating over his last 17 games and remains one of the more valuable fantasy defenders even after missing the first 24 games of the season due to a knee injury.
Weber scored his 12th goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Flyers. Weber's blast came as he straddled the blue line and appeared to surprise Carter Hart before it found the back of the net at the 4:45 mark of the second period. The fluke-ish goal would hold up as the game-winner, giving Montreal a much-needed win. In addition to his second-period snipe, Weber fired four other shots on goal (five in total) and also dished out five hits.
Weber scored a power-play goal and added a helper at even strength in Friday's 8-2 loss to the Ducks. Weber pumped seven shots on goal and dished two hits in a performance that went to waste in the blowout defeat. Weber has two multi-point outings in his last three games, giving him 11 goals and 16 assists over 45 appearances this season.
Weber scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Kings. The goal was Weber's 10th of the season, providing the Canadiens with valuable insurance just 41 seconds into the third period. The 33-year-old blueliner added two hits, two blocked shots, three shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in a strong performance. With 25 points in 43 games, his scoring is in line with his usual rates, but a face injury earlier in the campaign has weakened his season numbers.
Weber tallied the 14th assist of his injury-shortened campaign in Thursday's 5-1 victory over the Flyers. Weber has picked up assists in back-to-back contests but has gone goalless in six straight. Montreal's power-play struggles have clearly taken a toll on his goal production, but Weber's assist numbers have helped offset the lack of scoring. Claude Julien and his coaching staff must find a way to improve the team's 31st-ranked power play, as opposing teams are finding it easy to negate Weber's booming shot on special teams.
