Both the Montreal Canadiens and New York Islanders came into Sunday needing a boost. It was the Habs’ young guns line of Alex Galchenyuk, Brendan Gallagher and Lars Eller that sparked a 4-2 victory, ending their losing streak at four games while extending the Isles’ skid to four itself.
Galchenyuk had a goal and two assists, Gallagher scored two points (one goal, one assist) and Lars Eller found the net for the first time since Oct. 12 and added a couple helpers to power Montreal’s offense.
Each team scored a pair of power-play goals, so it was the Canadiens’ five-on-five play that made the difference. Carey Price went back to .500 on the season (7-7-1) with the win.
As you may remember, Thomas Vanek was unable to play tonight. Will these latest struggles prompt Isles GM Garth Snow to make another move.
