Montreal Canadiens – 2nd Atlantic Division

The Montreal Canadiens continued their hot start to the season posting victories against Buffalo (2-1 SO) and Minnesota (4-1) this week. Their only loss of the week came at the hands of the Chicago Blackhawks by a score of 5-0.

Lars Eller, P.A. Parenteau and Jiri Sekac all had a goal and an assist during the three games while Brandon Prust added two helpers.

The Habs goal scoring troubles continued this week with only 5 goals over the three games. In the Atlantic Division only Buffalo and Florida have scored fewer goals than Montreal.

The Canadiens are in sole possession of 2nd in the Atlantic Division and only two points back of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
