Tatar had an assist and three shots on goal in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to New Jersey.
Tatar was back on the top line, replacing the injured Jonathan Drouin (upper body), and extended his point streak to four games with a secondary assist on Brendan Gallagher's first-period goal. Tatar had been moved off the top line for a couple of games but has enough past experience with Gallagher and center Phillip Danault to seamlessly integrate. Tatar has seven points during his four-game streak and a team-high 20 points through 20 games.
Tatar scored an empty-net goal and added three helpers in Friday's 5-2 win over the Capitals.
With Jonathan Drouin in the room during the second period, Tatar made the most of a temporary promotion to the top line. All three of his assists came in the middle frame, and the winger squashed the Capitals' comeback with the empty-netter. Tatar is up to 19 points (seven goals, 12 assists) through 19 games. He's also added 51 shots on goal and 20 PIM over that span.
Tater scored his sixth goal of the season in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout win over the Blue Jackets.
His tally was a dramatic one, coming with only 41 seconds left on the clock in the third period to send the game to overtime, and eventually setting the stage for Jonathan Drouin's shootout winner. Tatar has been on a roll lately, scoring four goals and 10 points in the last 11 games, and after scoring 25 goals and 58 points in 2018-19, the 28-year-old is looking to reach the 60-point plateau for the first time in his career this season.
Tatar skated on the third line, registering an assist, three shots and one hit over 13:55 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Kings.
Tatar assisted on Nate Thompson's goal to record his 14th point in 17 games. That puts him second on the team behind Jonathan Drouin. During Thursday's loss to the Flyers, Tatar was demoted from the first to the fourth line but resurfaced on the third line Saturday. Moving off a line with Phillip Danault and Brendan Gallagher could have a negative impact on Tatar's scoring.
Tatar's demotion to the fourth line during Thursday's loss to the Flyers was a temporary one, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Tatar picked up a couple of early penalties and contributed little offensively Thursday, so coach Claude Julien replaced him on the top line with Nick Cousins. The coach confirmed that was a temporary demotion, and Tatar is expected to return to the line with center Phillip Danault and right winger Brendan Gallagher on Saturday at home against the Kings.
Tatar had one shot on goal and two minor penalties in 10:17 of ice time in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to Philadelphia.
Tatar, who opened the game at his usual spot at left wing on the top line, was dropped to fourth-line duty midway through the second period, leading to a season low of ice time. Nick Cousins took his spot on the top line, but it may have been a one-time tweak by coach Claude Julien, who tried to give his team a spark during a game in which the Canadiens were outplayed by the Flyers.
Tatar had a goal and an assist with two shots and a hit in Tuesday's 5-4 win over Boston.
Tatar, who potted his fifth goal, was named the game's second star for his two-point effort, the second such night in his last three games.

Tatar has registered six points over the last five games.
Tatar scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.
Tatar's third-period tally, which deflected off him in front of the net, sparked a three-goal rally as the Canadiens made a comeback. The winger had four shots and two hits in the contest.

Tatar, who had left Wednesday's practice after taking a shot off his foot, was back to normal on the top line with Phillip Danault and Brendan Gallagher. What wasn't normal was his ice time, which was about a minute-and-a-half less than his linemates and nearly two minutes less than his season average. It looks like head coach Claude Julien relied more on his second line, as the top line was on the ice for both of San Jose's even-strength goals.
Tatar (lower body) is expected to play Thursday against the Sharks, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Tatar exited Wednesday's practice early after suffering a lower-body injury, but it appears his departure was likely precautionary. He'll slot into his usual role skating on the Canadiens' top line and second power-play unit against San Jose.
Tatar won't return to Wednesday's practice due to a lower-body injury, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The severity of Tatar's injury has yet to be disclosed, but he should probably be considered questionable at best for Thursday's matchup with San Jose at this point. Confirmation on his status for that contest will undoubtedly surface prior to puck drop.

Tatar got the hosts on the board at the 12:59 mark of the first period and then found the scoresheet again in the second, drawing the primary helper on Phillip Danault's second goal of the season. The win over the Blues was Tatar's first multi-point game of 2019-20 and with it, he now has five points in as many games.
Tatar recorded a power-play assist Thursday in a 4-2 home loss to the Red Wings.
Tatar evidently put some lumber on the puck before Max Domi swatted it into the cage following a bounce off the end boards. With a goal and two helpers through four games to open the season, Tatar is out to prove that his career-high point total (58) with the Habs last season was no fluke. He's a dual threat in the sense that he can score and set up goals with aplomb.
Tatar scored a power-play goal and had a team-high six shots on net in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Hurricanes.
Tatar lit the lamp with an unassisted marker a couple minutes after Carolina jumped to a 2-0 lead early in the second period. He's firmly planted on the Habs' top line, and his 17:41 of ice time showed that. The 28-year-old forward got a quick start on his quest for a sixth straight season of 20-plus goals.
Tatar finished Tuesday's 6-1 win over Florida with a pair of goals, an assist and a plus-3 rating.
Tatar led Montreal forwards with 19:17 of ice time in Tuesday's lopsided win, scoring both his goals in the opening period before adding an assist on Phillip Danault's second-period snipe.

Sitting at 50 points through 68 games, Tatar needs six more to tie his career high, set back in 2014-15. The forward missed his team's last game with an illness but returned in fine form Tuesday. Tatar picked up a minor penalty and also dished out a hit in the win.
Tatar (illness) was back at practice Monday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.
Tatar missed Montreal's last game due to the flu, but his ability to practice here suggests he's no longer under the weather. Look for the owner of 22 goals and 48 points through 67 games to get back into the lineup Tuesday against the Red Wings.
Tatar (illness) won't play in Friday's road game versus the Ducks, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Tatar has been hot lately with seven points in the last 10 games. It's unclear who will bump up to the first line, but Jonathan Drouin appears to be a top candidate for the position. The Canadiens have three days off before Tuesday's game versus the Red Wings, so Tatar has a good chance to get back in then.
