Habs' Markov Strikes On Power Play In Win

News: Andrei Markov scored a power-play goal and added an assist in Friday's win over the Kings.
Analysis: Andrei Markov now has four goals this season, with three of them coming on the power play. With 15 points in 31 games, Markov is once again on pace for another 40-point season. He's one of the more reliable fantasy defensemen around.

Habs' Markov Gets Pair Of Points In Win

News: Andrei Markov collected a goal and assist in Monday's win over the Avalanche.
Analysis: The goal was Andrei Markov's fifth power-play point and was one of three shot attempts for the defenseman on the night. It marked the third multi-point performance of the season for Markov.

Montreal's Markov Scores On Power Play

News: Andrei Markov's first-period, power play goal held up as the game winner in Saturday night's 2-0 win over Boston.
Analysis: The goal was Andrei Markov's 100th of his career and joins legendary Canadiens Larry Robinson, Serge Savard and Guy LaPointe as defensemen in the 100-goal club.

Habs' Markov Assists On Power Play

News: Andrei Markov had two power play assists in Saturday night's 6-3 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Montreal's power play has been awoken, having scored on four consecutive opportunities in the past two games. More than half of Andrei Markov's career points have come when Montreal has an extra skater on the ice, so it's no shock he's been involved in the unit's recent resurgence.

Habs' Markov Logging Minutes On Road

News: Andrei Markov played a team-high 29:26 in Thursday night's 3-2 overtime loss to the Canucks. He also led the Habs on Tuesday when he logged 30:14 in a shootout win over Calgary.
Analysis: Head coach Michel Therrien had been pretty good about keeping the 36-year-old Andrei Markov's minutes to a sustainable rate that last two weeks, so a small two-game spike shouldn't be much of a problem. Whether or the not the coach trusts the other blueliners enough is a question going forward. Rookie Jarred Tinordi played just 9:06 and Mike Weaver only 14:08 on Thursday.

Markov's Three Points Help Lead Habs To Win

News: Andrei Markov orchestrated a comeback win against the Flyers on Saturday night with a goal and two assists in a 7:35 span of the third period.
Analysis: The Habs were down 3-0 when Andrei Markov lit the lamp at 7:05 of the third and he then set up two more to force overtime and a shootout. He'll turn 36 in December, but he's still a solid fantasy defender.

Habs Sign Markov To Three-Year Extension

News: Andrei Markov signed a three-year extension with the Canadiens on Monday.
Analysis: Andrei Markov was set to become an unrestricted free agent, but will remain with the Habs for the next three seasons. He was a steady contributor to the team's success last season, scoring 43 points while skating with the second defensive pairing on most nights, and should serve a similar role with the Habs moving forward.

Canadiens' Markov Seeks Three Years

News: Andrei Markov, a soon-to-be unrestricted free agent, is seeking a three-year deal worth $6 million per year, according to the TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Analysis: The Canadiens might be put off by giving three years to the 35-year-old Andrei Markov, though he was an effective player in 2013-14. He posted 7-36-43 totals and was plus-12 while averaging 25:14 per game.

Habs' Markov Assists In Game 5 Win

News: Andrei Markov dished out three assists in Tuesday's Game 5 victory over the Rangers. He also went plus-1 with two PIM, two shots, two hits and a blocked shot.
Analysis: After slogging through a three-game pointless stretch, Andrei Markov's come alive with five points in his last three, but still isn't shooting as heavily as you'd like to see. Aside from his power-play time, he's assumed something of a stay-at-home role alongside P.K. Subban.

Habs' Markov Scores First Playoff Goal Since 2008

News: Andrei Markov scored his first playoff goal since April 26, 2008, in Thursday's Game 3 victory over the Rangers. It came on his only shot of the game, and he went plus-2 on the night.
Analysis: Six years, a month and six days between playoff goals -- wow. Generally a prolific shooter, Andrei Markov's largely been quiet over the last four games in these playoffs, having taken just five shots on goal. But hey, the monkey's off his back now.

Habs' Markov: Two Assists Saturday

News: Andrei Markov picked up two assists in Saturday's loss to the Bruins. He has just four points -- all assists -- in this postseason.
Analysis: P.K. Subban has been picking up the points while Andrei Markov has been minding the store. But the Habs could really use both of them on the scoresheet with regularity.

Habs' Markov Picks Up First Postseason Points

News: Andrei Markov tallied his first two points of the playoffs Thursday in Game 1 against the Bruins, notching power-play assists on P.K. Subban's opening goal and game-winner in double overtime.
Analysis: It's been a curiously quiet postseason for Andrei Markov, who only took one shot on goal in this one and only has six shots during five playoff games in total after putting 131 on net in the regular season. But hey, picking up two primary assists on the power play could help get him going.

Habs' Markov To Rest Wednesday

News: Andrei Markov (rest) will not travel to Chicago for Wednesday's game against the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Both Andrei Markov and defensive partner Alexei Emelin will take therapy days Wednesday in preparation for the playoffs. Look for Francis Bouillon and Nathan Beaulieu to enter the lineup Wednesday in place of the two resting blueliners.

Habs' Markov Pots Seventh Goal

News: Andrei Markov potted his seventh goal of the season in Friday's 7-4 win over the Senators.
Analysis: While P.K. Subban receives most of the fantasy buzz among Montreal defensemen, Andrei Markov has closed that gap considerably with 43 points this season, his best output since the 2008-09 campaign. Markov has also contributed an astounding 176 blocked shots, and his plus-3 rating Friday night also boosted him to plus-12 overall on the season.

Two-Point Evening For Habs' Markov

News: Andrei Markov scored one of the Habs' goals and assisted on the other during Thursday's 5-2 loss in Phoenix.
Analysis: While Andrei Markov has been racking up assists regularly, this was his first goal since a two-score game way back on Jan. 11. But over the 18 goal-free games in between, Markov collected a dozen assists to keep his fantasy owners satisfied.

Andrei Markov

Habs' Markov: Trio Of Helpers

News: Andrei Markov set up three Montreal goals, including two on the power play, in Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Toronto. He's currently riding a five-game, seven-assist streak.
Analysis: He may not have done well at the Olympics, but he has 11 assists in his last 10 games. Four of those helpers have come with the man advantage. Enjoy the ride.

Montreal's Markov Gets Therapy Day

News: Andrei Markov was given a therapy day and did not take part in practice Wednesday, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: Coach Michel Therrien confirmed it was only a maintenance day and that Andrei Markov will suit up Thursday night against Boston.

Habs' Markov Scores Two In Win

News: Andrei Markov scored both Montreal goals in a 2-1 overtime win over Chicago on Saturday night. They were his first points in five games.
Analysis: The points are little further apart this season than they've been over his career, but he's still a solid fantasy producer. He still has 24 points in 46 games and sits in the league's top-20 scorers from the blue line.

Habs' Markov Finally Finds Twine Again

News: Andrei Markov scored a game-tying power-play goal Tuesday against the Coyotes -- his first tally since way back on Nov. 7 against Ottawa and just his third of the year.
Analysis: Though Andrei Markov had been producing assists, at least, while he wasn't scoring for much of November, even those had dried up over the last couple weeks or so. He'd totaled just two assists in the last 10 games and been held off the score sheet entirely for the last four entering Tuesday's action. Perhaps this tally will get the usually prolific power-play scorer back on track.

Habs' Markov Fine After Hit

News: Andrei Markov, who twisted his left knee and went down awkwardly in Saturday night's win over Buffalo, practiced Monday, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: Andrei Markov stayed in the game after colliding with Buffalo's Tyler Ennis and looked fine during Monday's practice. The defenseman, who has undergone two major ACL surgeries on his right knee, has played in 89 consecutive regular-season games.

Habs' Markov Notches Three Assists

News: Andrei Markov racked up three assists Wednesday against the Sabres.
Analysis: The blueliner has been on fire lately, and extended his scoring streak to four games Wednesday. With six points in his last four contests, and 17 on the season, Andrei Markov is on pace to return to his 2008-09 form.

Habs' Markov Helps On Three Goals

News: Andrei Markov was credited with assists on all three Montreal goals Friday night in a 4-3 loss to Minnesota. He added three shots on net, two blocked shots and a hit.
Analysis: The 34-year-old Andrei Markov is averaging a career-high 25 minutes of ice time per game and is plus-9 through 14 games. Whether or not he can sustain this effectiveness come March and April -- especially after playing in the Sochi Olympics -- is in question, but he's playing himself into a new contract.

Habs' Markov Breaks Through

News: Andrei Markov finally picked up his first goal of the year Thursday, a shorthanded tally, and added an assist in a winning effort against the Jackets.
Analysis: Andrei Markov's generally expected to produce goals on the power play, not the penalty kill, but his owners will take a special-teams goal of any kind after he managed just two assists (both on the power play, of course) in six games to start the season. The Russian defenseman will continue to see plenty of time with the man advantage, where he collected 23 of his 30 points last season.

Andrei Markov

Canadiens' Markov Giveth

News: Andrei Markov had four giveaways Tuesday night in Montreal's 4-3 loss to Toronto.
Analysis: Andrei Markov's failed attempt to keep the puck in the Leafs' zone during a power play led to a Tyler Bozak breakaway goal, snapping a 2-2 tie.

Andrei Markov

Habs' Markov Notches Two On Power Play

News: Andrei Markov scored a goal and an assist on the power play in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: He'd gone four games without a point and hadn't picked up multiple points in a game since doing so three times in the first five games of the season. Still, it's been a fine campaign for Andrei Markov, who's finally managed to stay healthy after being plagued by knee injuries the last three seasons.
