Habs' Desharnais Adjusting

News: David Desharnais, who was dropped to the third line recently, has a goal and two assists in the last two games.
Analysis: David Desharnais is adjusting to his new linemates, centering Brandon Prust and P.A. Parenteau for the time being. At some point, when Lars Eller returns from an upper-body injury, the lines may be tweaked again.

Habs' Desharnais Nets Two Points In Win

News: David Desharnais scored his third goal of the season and added an assist in Friday's win over the Kings. It was his first 5-on-5 goal in 52 games.
Analysis: David Desharnais now has 17 points in 31 games, to go with a plus-8 rating. While he's been dropped down to the third line, Desharnais has been fairly consistent of late, recording seven points (one goal) in his last 11 games. While his goal total is disappointing, Desharnais is still on pace for a 40- to 50-point season, making him a reliable option in some deep leagues.

Habs Drop Desharnais

News: David Desharnais was moved off the top line during Monday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports. He centered a line with Michael Bournival and P.A. Parenteau.
Analysis: Head coach Michel Therrien is breaking up the pairing of David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty, a duo who've played together since the days in the AHL. The coach made major line changes Monday in the wake of Montreal's worst stretch this season. Having scored 13 goals in the last seven games, in which they've won just once, it was time for a change.

Canadiens' Desharnais Dropped

News: David Desharnais was dropped to the third line during Saturday night's 4-1 loss to Dallas. He skated the third period with P.A. Parenteau and Brandon Prust.
Analysis: The decision to shuffle lines was more about the team's effort than David Desharnais', but with Montreal a loser in six of their last seven, perhaps a more permanent shakeup is in order.

Habs' Desharnais Assists On Winner

News: David Desharnais assisted on Max Pacioretty's game-winning goal in Monday night's 4-3 win over the Avalanche. He's tied with Alex Galchenyuk for the team lead with 11 assists.
Analysis: David Desharnais didn't get off a shot in 15 minutes of ice time and has just 27 shots on goal through 26 games. That paucity of forays to the net could be a reason why he got less power-play time (1:02) than either Alex Galchenyuk (2:39) or Tomas Plekancec (2:45) in the win.

Two-Point Night For Habs' Desharnais

News: David Desharnais pocketed a goal and assist in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: David Desharnais was one of eight multi-point scorers on the night for a well-balanced Canadiens attack. The diminutive center hasn't been truly hot at any point this season, but with 10 points and a plus-10 rating in 18 games, he certainly hasn't qualified as a disappointment for the Habs.

Habs' Desharnais Pots OT Winner

News: David Desharnais scored in overtime to seal Tuesday night's 2-1 win over the Red Wings. It was the first goal of the season for Montreal's top-line center.
Analysis: Aside from a big night against the Bruins last week, the first line has been relatively quiet to start the season. That'll change. David Desharnais, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher will be team scoring leaders before the season is done.

Habs' Desharnais Snaps Slump

News: David Desharnais contributed a pair of assists and went plus-2 in Thursday's victory over Boston, ending a three-game streak without a point.
Analysis: David Desharnais hadn't been on the scoresheet over the last three games since notching an assist in the opener against Toronto, so this was a much-needed performance for his fantasy owners. He's a talented playmaker skating alongside skilled finishers in Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher, so Desharnais should produce more steadily going forward.

Canadiens' Desharnais A Plus-2

News: David Desharnais had an assist and two shots on goal in Wednesday night's win over Toronto. He won eight of 15 faceoffs and was plus-2 in 17:19 of ice time.
Analysis: It was a typically smart game from Montreal's top-line center. He takes care of the puck, is a deft passer and knows when the shot is there for himself. His line, along with left winger Max Pacioretty and right winger P.A. Parenteau, accounted for four points (one goal, three assists).

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.

Desharnais Opens Montreal Scoring

News: David Desharnais scored the opening goal in Friday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay in Game 2 of the teams' Atlantic Division semifinal.
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.

Habs' Desharnais Picks Up Two Assists Tuesday

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.

Canadiens' Desharnais Sends Game Into OT

News: David Desharnais' power-play goal with less than a second remaining sent Saturday's game into overtime where the Canadiens scored again to beat Ottawa, 5-4. He was also involved in overtime when he assisted on Francis Bouillon's game-winner.
Analysis: The Habs are scoring challenged, 29th in the league in 5-on-5 scoring, but David Desharnais has been a prolific point-getter of late. He has eight points (two goals, six assists) in the last eight games.

Habs' Desharnais Extends Assist Streak

News: David Desharnais had an assist in Wednesday's shootout win over the Ducks, his fourth straight game with a helper.
Analysis: The line of David Desharnais, Max Pacioretty and Brenadan Gallagher is carrying the bulk of the Habs' scoring load of late. Stretching back to before the Olympic break, Desharnais has 10 points (three goals, seven assists) in the last eight games.

Habs' Desharnais Grabs Two Assists

News: David Desharnais picked up a pair of helpers in Thursday's 6-5 shootout win over the Penguins.
Analysis: After going scoreless Wednesday in his first post-Olympic game, David Desharnais got back on the horse in this one, and he's now got seven points in his last five contests.

Habs' Desharnais: Two Goals Extend Streak

News: David Desharnais' two goals Saturday in a win over Carolina extended his point streak to three games and five points, including three goals.
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 Finishes Off Flames

News: David Desharnais scored an empty-net goal Tuesday night in a 2-0 win over Calgary.
Analysis: The goal was David Desharnais' first in eight games and also came on the power play. It was his second man-advantage goal of the season.

Habs' Desharnais In The Lineup Wednesday

News: David Desharnais (illness) will play Wednesday vs. the Penguins.
Analysis: Despite sitting out morning skate, David Desharnais' condition improved in the afternoon, and he'll now be able to man the top line for the Habs. Desharnais got off to a glacially slow start to the season, but has still compiled a respectable eight goals and 16 assists in 46 games.

Habs' Desharnais Expected To Play Wednesday

News: David Desharnais (illness) is expected to play Wednesday against the Penguins, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: David Desharnais sat out the morning skate with flu-like symptoms, but it looks like he'll be able to suit up Wednesday night, although we likely won't know for sure until warm-ups start.

News: David Desharnais returned to the lineup Thursday night after missing one game because of the flu. He had a goal and an assist in a 5-4 overtime win over Ottawa. The two points give him eight in the last seven games.
Analysis: David Desharnais was a welcome re-addition to the lineup Thursday, assisting on Max Pacioretty's power play goal, the Canadiens' first score on the man advantage in 18 attempts.
