Habs' Galchenyuk Notches Two Points

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored his second goal of the playoffs -- a power-play tally -- and picked up his first postseason assist in Tuesday's Game 5 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk's goal was a thing of beauty, a perfect deflection of a P.K. Subban shot between the legs of Henrik Lundqvist. He's looked sharp since returning from the knee injury that kept him out more than a month, picking up three points in his four games against New York despite somewhat limited minutes.

Habs' Galchenyuk Pots Game 3 OT Winner

News: Alex Galchenyuk was credited with his first playoff goal Thursday -- the winning tally 1:12 into overtime in Game 3 against the Rangers.
Analysis: It was a bit of a lucky goal -- Henrik Lunqvist spiked the puck away, and it bounced off Alex Galchenyuk's upper body and into the net. But hey, it's a huge game-winning goal and a confidence builder from a guy who's just playing his second game this postseason due to a knee injury. Galchenyuk's fresh legs are going to come in handy for the Canadiens as they try to claw their way through this series without star goalie Carey Price.

Habs' Galchenyuk Will Play Monday

News: Alex Galchenyuk (knee) will play Monday, Renaud Lavoie of Journal de Montreal reports.
Analysis: Michael Bournival will sit in favor of Alex Galchenyuk, who's back in the Canadiens' lineup for the first time since injuring his knee April 9.

Habs' Galchenyuk Expected To Play Monday

News: Alex Galchenyuk (knee) is expected to play in Monday's Game 2 against the Rangers, Arpon Basu of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk hasn't played in over a month, but it sounds like he could suit up Monday. The center racked up 13 goals and 18 assists in 65 regular season games before suffering the injury.

Habs' Galchenyuk (Knee) Cleared For Contact

News: Alex Galchenyuk has been cleared for contact, TSN's John Lu reports.
Analysis: He was unable to take the ice in Wednesday's Game 7, but it's certainly possible that he is able to contribute throughout the Eastern Conference finals against the Rangers, which commence Saturday.

Habs' Galchenyuk Progressing

News: Alex Galchenyuk (knee) took part in Wednesday's optional morning skate sporting a non-contact jersey, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports Montreal adds that Alex Galchenyuk won't play in Wednesday's Game 7 against the Bruins, but if the Habs are able to advance, a return for the Eastern Conference Final seems like a plausible scenario for the forward.

Habs' Galchenyuk Skates

News: Alex Galchenyuk (knee) skated on his own Wednesday morning, Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk has been sidelined since April 9 with a knee injury, and there's no word on whether he'll be back during the Habs' second-round series against the Bruins. It would be wise to continue to keep an eye on Galchenyuk as he continues to progress in his rehab, though, since he could be a valuable asset if the Canadiens make a deep playoff run. Galchenyuk was on a three-game point streak before getting hurt, and finished the regular season with 13 goals and 18 assists in 65 games.

Habs' Galchenyuk Set To Miss Another Round

News: Alex Galchenyuk (knee) isn't expected to be ready to play until the Eastern Conference Finals round, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Though the Habs advanced to the second round after easily taking care of the Lightning in four games, Alex Galchenyuk still needs a couple more weeks before entertaining the idea of a return. He first suffered his knee injury back on Apr. 9 and was given a projected recovery timetable for four-to-six weeks.

Habs' Galchenyuk Has Knee Injury

News: Alex Galchenyuk's lower-body injury is a knee injury, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: The exact nature of the injury is unknown, but the specter of a knee injury sounds worse than lower body. Whatever the injury, it will keep Galcehnyuk out of the first round of the playoffs.

Habs' Galchenyuk Out For First Round Of Playoffs

News: Alex Galchenyuk (lower body) will not be available for the first round of the playoffs.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk can thus be ruled out for the regular season, and it's unclear whether he'll have a decent chance to return for later rounds should the Habs advance beyond their opening matchup. The team didn't provide any details on the injury, other than noting that Galchenyuk hurt his lower body and won't play in the first round.

Habs' Galchenyuk Goes In For MRI

News: Coach Michel Therrien said Alex Galchenyuk (lower body) went in for an MRI earlier Thursday, but he would not disclose the results, John Lu of TSN Montreal reports.
Analysis: Therrien said Alex Galchenyuk will first meet with a doctor later in the evening for an evaluation, making him safe to consider out for Thursday's game against the Islanders. Galchenyuk was spotted on crutches after Wednesday's game and could be jeopardy of missing some postseason action if the injury proves to be significant.

Habs' Galchenyuk (Lower Body) Seen On Crutches

News: Alex Galchenyuk (lower body) was seen on crutches following Wednesday's game, TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk took a hit during the first period of Wednesday night's tilt with the Blackhawks, and left the ice after finishing his shift. It was later reported that he would miss the rest of the game, and the fact that he was seen on crutches after the game suggests his availability for Thursday's game is highly in question.

Habs' Galchenyuk Leaves Game, Won't Return

News: Alex Galchenyuk (lower body) left Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks and won't return, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports Montreal reports.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk left the game in the first period, and won't be rejoining the Habs' second line Wednesday night. A status will likely be provided following Wednesday's game.

Habs' Galchenyuk: Three-Game Points Streak

News: Alex Galchenyuk notched his 13th goal of the season in Saturday's win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: The Habs' depth at forward has typically relegated Alex Galchenyuk to less than 15 minutes per game, but the limited ice time hasn't done much to diminish his productivity. The 20-year-old is enjoying a three-game streak with a point, his longest such run since opening the season with a four-point streak back in October.

Habs' Galchenyuk Skates On Second Line

News: Alex Galchenyuk skated on the second line with Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher during Saturday night's win over Toronto.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk had lined up at center on the third line during practice Friday, but coach Michel Therrien switched up the lines once again before game time Saturday. The new trio produced just three shots Saturday, but it was on the ice when Plekanec scored the game winner in the third period. We expect the same lineup when Montreal travels to Boston for a game against the red-hot Bruins on Monday.

Habs Move Galchenyuk To Center

News: Alex Galchenyuk lined up at center on the third line during Friday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports. He centered a line with Rene Bourque and Brian Gionta.
Analysis: The expectation is that this trio will be on the ice Saturday night against Toronto. Coach Michel Therrien said he's experimenting with combinations in practice, but also warned against making assumptions based on what's done in practice. At any rate, it looks like Alex Galchenyuk, who came through the hockey ranks as a center, will line up there Saturday. As part of the line shuffling, Therrien dropped Lars Eller to the fourth line.

Habs' Galchenyuk Scores FIrst Since Return

News: Alex Galchenyuk scored a first-period goal in Saturday night's 4-3 overtime win over Toronto. It was his first goal since returning from a hand injury three games ago.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk's had some growing pains along the way, but the kid's got offensive skills. He has points in two straight games and is looking to make himself a top-six forward, if not by the end of this season, certainly next season.

News: Alex Galchenyuk (hand) returned to game action Wednesday night and played 15:15 in a 2-1 overtime loss to Detroit. He suited up for the first time since Jan. 6 when he broke his hand.
Analysis: Alex Galchenyuk provided some spark on a night when the Canadiens' slumbered through much of the game. He was on the ice for the Montreal's game-tying goal with less than a minute left and helped the Canadiens salvage a point they didn't deserve.

Habs' Galchenyuk Practices Wednesday

News: Alex Galchenyuk (hand) was on the ice for Wednesday's practice, TSN Montreal's John Lu reports.
Analysis: It's been over six-plus weeks since Alex Galchenyuk last practiced with the Habs after breaking his hand, so expect the team to proceed slowly as they look to get him back up to full speed. There's no guarantee he'll be ready to play when the Habs take the ice for their next game Feb. 26, but his presence at practice signals that a return isn't too far down the road.
