Habs' Desharnais Assists On Two

News: David Desharnais gathered two assists in Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: After totaling 16 goals in the regular season, David Desharnais has managed just one tally in 15 playoff contests, but has offset that to some degree with six assists. Sunday's helpers marked his first points of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Analysis: David Desharnais deflected a P.K. Subban shot past Anders Lindback and grabbed a point for the second-consecutive game in the series. Considering the chemistry Desharnais has shown with Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty, one can assume he'll be productive if the Habs are to continue playing well.

Canadiens' Desharnais Remains Consistent

News: David Desharnais had an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago.
Analysis: After a crumby start to the season, the Quebec center has really turned things up a notch. David Desharnais has logged an almost point-per-game pace with 12 assists (17 points) over his last 19 games and will be an integral part of Montreal's fate in the playoffs starting next week.

Desharnais Scores In Montreal Win

News: David Desharnais grabbed a goal and an assist in Friday's 7-4 win over Ottawa, giving him six points in the last four games.
Analysis: David Desharnais has been rather active of late, with three mutli-point efforts in the last four games. He's playing strong hockey and figures to be a factor in the offense Montreal will create down the stretch. All but one of his season's 51 points have come in the last 56 games, as his start to year was abysmal.

Habs' Deshnarnais Has Two-Point Night

News: David Desharnais scored a goal, assisted on another and had three shots in Thursday night's 5-4 win over Detroit.
Analysis: David Desharnais has been a consistent point-getter since mid-December, registering 37 points in 41 games and never going more than two contests without a goal or an assist. These days, he's centering Montreal's most talented snipers, Max Pacioretty and Thomas Vanek, so we're not expecting any more long skids. The trio was responsible for 13 of the Habs' 29 shots on the Wings' Jimmy Howard.

News: David Desharnais dished out two helpers Tuesday as the Canadiens doubled up the Avalanche 6-3.
Analysis: David Desharnais was one of five Canadiens that posted multi-point performances en route to spoiling former-Hab and current Avs head coach Patrick Roy's homecoming. Desharnais is living it up as the Habs' top center between scoring machines Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty -- both at regular strength and on the power-play -- and has rattled off 16 points in the last 14 games. He now has 43 points in 67 games and should be rolled out in all formats.

Analysis: He has picked things up after his early-season malaise and now has 32 points on the season. And he has eight points (three goals, five assists) in his last nine games. He will provide some late-season value if he can keep this up.

Habs' Desharnais Scores Winner In OT
