  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Logs assist in win

    Evans recorded an assist and one shot on goal over 11:29 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win against the Bruins.

    Evans won a puck battle in the corner, which led to Brendan Gallagher's goal early in the third period to give Montreal a 2-1 lead. Normally the fourth-line center, Evans took a shift on the third line, as Sean Monahan was part of the power-play group that scored the Canadiens' first goal just 27 seconds earlier. Evans has been a useful, multi-purpose forward the last several years for Montreal bust mostly lives on the fourth line. He has three points (two in the last three games), 10 shots on net, 14 hits and 14 blocked shots over 14 games.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Snaps drought

    Evans logged an assist, one shot on goal, one hit and two penalty minutes over 12:53 of ice time in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Evans snapped a 10-game drought in the third period when he and Michael Pezzetta banged away at a loose puck in front of Matt Tomkins before Pezzetta put it past the goalie, closing the gap to 4-2. Later in the third period, when Montreal was pressing to make it a one-goal game, Evans was called for holding, which led to a Tampa Bay insurance marker. As a member of the fourth line and a key contributor on the penalty-kill unit, Evans is not usually on the ice with Montreal's best offensive players and arguably shouldn't have been on the ice with the Canadiens desperate to score. The center has just three goals over his last 66 games and nine shots on goal over 12 games this season.

  • Canadiens' Jake Evans: Finishes opportunity

    Evans scored a goal on his lone shot, recorded three hits and was assessed two PIM in Wednesday's 6-5 shootout loss to the Maple Leafs.

    Evans gave the Canadiens an early lead when T.J. Brodie blew a tire at the blue line, resulting in a breakaway. The fourth-line center went backhand then forehand to beat Ilya Samsonov glove side. Evans scored just two goals over 54 games last season and is expected to remain stuck on the fourth line, so he'll need to take advantage of the gifts presented to him as he did Wednesday to get on the scoresheet.
