Avalanche extends winning streak to five games after beating Canadiens

Avalanche extends winning streak to five games after beating Canadiens

Quality chances for Montreal were limited through two periods but Brendan Gallagher got the Canadiens on the board in typical fashion for the winger, a goal from the crease at 17:42 of the second after going hard to the net. His freshman season (2017-18), he was a Hockey East All-First team star while his 1.92 goals against average was best all-time in the program and seventh in the NCAA with his.931 save percentage second best in program history. "It was something minor, we got it taken care of, but the pain was still there", Colorado's captain said on earlier in the day after head coach Jared Bednar announced his decision.

The 20-year-old son of former NHL player Keith Primeau did his part to keep a struggling Montreal squad in the game against the league's top-ranked offense. That team over there is pretty deep, good off the rush, good on the power play.

Defenceman Ryan Graves opened the scoring when he beat Primeau during a goalmouth scramble after the goalie turned back shots from Cale Makar and Matt Calvert. The Canadiens led 4-0 before the Rangers stormed back to win 6-5. Landeskog went around Jeff Petry on the right wing and had time to square up and beat Primeau with a left-handed shot.

Smith tied the game 1-1 at 2:30 of the second when he scored on a breakaway off a turnover.

"It takes a lot of flawless games to get that percentage up, but the important thing is that we're starting to do the right things", Price said.

When the teams met in Montreal on November 23, they played an instant classic.

Montreal pressed for the equalizer with time winding down.

Rangers coach David Quinn wasn't singing the praises of his team after beating Columbus, save for goaltender Alexandar Georgiev, who made 45 saves while his club was outplayed by a wide margin. Francouz then denied Gallagher on a wraparound two minutes later.

Montreal was down a forward 90 seconds into the game when Jesperi Kotkaniemi fell awkwardly in the corner on a hit by Nikita Zadorov.

The biggest change was the return of Nick Suzuki to centre. He did not accompany the team to NY and is out for an indefinite period.

"I'm not surprised in any way", said Landeskog, who totaled three goals and four assists through 11 games before sustaining the injury. "It's not your typical slew foot where you slide it underneath, but his leg goes up and he uses his upper body to flip him".

He would post a 2.09 GAA and.922 in his sophomore (and final) year, going 25-10 in the process and take home the 2019 Mike Richter award for most outstanding Division I goalie in the regular season.
