Habs' Plekanec: Goal And Assist In Win

News: Tomas Plekanec scored the game-winning goal and also added an assist in Monday's 2-0 win over the Red Wings.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec is heating up as he's now registered a point in four straight and has seven in his last six contests. The multi-point effort brings him up to 40 points, and he should surpass the 50-point plateau for the first time since the 2011-12 season.

Habs' Plekanec On Ice Thursday

News: Tomas Plekanec, who was given a therapy day Wednesday, played 20:27 in Thursday night's 4-3 overtime loss to the Oilers.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec appears no worse for wear after taking a hard hit in Tuesday night's win over the Flyers. He had four shots on goal, four minutes in penalties and won 14 of 20 faceoffs in the loss.

Habs Give Plekanec A Therapy Day

News: Tomas Plekanec took a therapy day and did not practice Wednesday, the Montreal Gazette reports.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec was on the receiving end of a hard check from the Flyers Chris Vandevelde on Tuesday, but he's expected to play Thursday against Edmonton.

Habs' Plekanec Scoring Goals Again

News: Tomas Plekanec scored the game-tying goal in the third period of Tuesday night's 2-1 win in overtime over the Flyers.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec had been mired in a scoring drought, registering goals in just one of 12 games before head coach Michel Therrien reunited him with the Gally kids, Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher. He's now scored three times in three games since the line change.

Habs' Plekanec Uncorks Two, Including Game-Winner

News: Tomas Plekanec potted two goals -- including the game-winner on the power play -- in a 6-2 win over the Devils on Saturday.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec was one of six multi-point scorers for the Habs, who put 44 shots on Devils goalie Keith Kinkaid. While Plekanec is poised to fall well short of the 70-point peak he achieved in 2009-10, he's still a functional depth forward across most fantasy formats. Thus far, he's supplied 35 points in 51 games, while pulling his weight in plus-minus (plus-7) and PIM (34).

Habs' Plekanec Active In OT Win

News: Tomas Plekanec assisted on Max Pacioretty's game-winning goal in Saturday's 1-0 triumph over the Capitals.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec will never be mistaken for a premier center, but he's in the midst of his best season since 2011-12. The 32-year-old has 13 goals, 20 assists, and a plus-8 rating over 48 games.

Tomas Plekanec

Habs' Plekanec: Four-Point Night

News: Tomas Plekanec scored twice and added two assists in Saturday's win over the Islanders. He now has points in three straight games.
Analysis: He has gotten hot since the calendar turned and has nine points, including six assists, in seven games this year. Take full advantage -- this little spurt has him put him back on a near-60s point pace. And there's real value in that.

Habs' Plekanec Assists On Lone Goal

News: Tomas Plekanec had an assist and three shots on goal in Thursday night's 4-1 loss to the Senators. As a bonus, he picked up 14 minutes in penalties after getting whistled for a game misconduct in the final minute of the third period.
Analysis: In the two games since being moved to the top line, Tomas Plekanec has points in both of them. That line has been Montreal's best one of late, so Plekanec owners should be happy to see him skating with the uber-hot Max Pacioretty (seven goals in six games) and Brendan Gallagher.

Habs' Plekanec Productive On New Line

News: Tomas Plekanec was moved to the top line for Wednesday night's win over Columbus. He had six shots on goal with an assist and won 16 of 25 faceoffs over 21:06 of ice time.
Analysis: The new top unit -- Tomas Plekanec, Max Pacioretty and Brendan Gallagher -- took 18 of Montreal's 31 shots and generated a ton of offensive-zone possession time. This new arrangement looks like it could be together for a long stretch.

Habs' Plekanec Promoted To Top Line

News: Tomas Plekanec centered the top line during Monday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports.

Canadiens' Plekanec Ices Win

News: Tomas Plekanec had five shots on net and an empty-net goal in Friday night's 4-2 win over the Devils. He has two points (both goals) in the past seven games.
Analysis: Contrary to recent evidence, Tomas Plekanec has been a productive forward all the while his linemates change. He's tied for second on the team with 105 shots and is a constant top-sixer for Montreal. He should remain in lineups despite hitting a fallow stretch.

News: Tomas Plekanec scored a goal and assisted on another in Sunday night's 4-1 win over Detroit.
Analysis: It was a very productive weekend for Tomas Plekanec, who had two assists in Saturday's win over the Flyers. It's been a season of streaks for the second-line center. He opened the season with nine points in eight games, then experienced a six-game drought, and has now registered six points in the last five.

Habs' Plekanec Assists On Two In Win

News: Tomas Plekanec picked up two assists in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Flyers.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec was fairly active all night for the Canadiens, registering five shots, two hits and two penalty minutes in the victory. He's cooled down a bit from his early-season surge, but his 13 points in 18 games still make him a viable secondary forward for fantasy squads.

Canadiens' Plekanec Finishes Off Jets

News: Tomas Plekanec scored a short-handed, empty-net goal in Tuesday night's 3-0 win over Winnipeg. It was his first goal in eight games.
Analysis: Bonus points for fantasy owners, who get a cheap end-of-game goal on the penalty kill. After a hot start, Tomas Plekanec has cooled off considerably with just two points in the last eight games.

Habs' Plekanec Helps Out In Win

News: Tomas Plekanec grabbed two helpers in Thursday's win over the Bruins.
Analysis: After opening the season on a three-game goal streak, Tomas Plekanec had a scoreless game, then immediately bounced back by notching these two assists. One of them came on an empty-netter, but that's alright -- they all count on the ol' stat line.

Habs' Plekanec Continues Goal Streak

News: Tomas Plekanec scored a goal for the third straight game in Saturday night's 4-3 shootout win over Philadelphia. He added an assist and two shots on net while finishing plus-2 for the evening.
Analysis: Tomas Plekanec, who has scored on a ridiculous 44 percent of his shots, has four goals and an assist through three games. He and Alex Galchenyuk are forging a nice rapport on the second line.

Canadiens' Plekanec In Offensive Role

News: Tomas Plekanec, who has three goals in the first two games, has been able to play more offensively because Manny Malhotra is taking on more of the defensive responsibilities that burdened Plekanec in recent seasons, the Montreal Gazette reports. "[Malhotra's] taken on the defensive roles that Pleky was playing and, as a coach, I'm able to use Pleky in more offensive roles, and so far it's been pretty good," said head coach Michel Therrien.
Analysis: Prior to Malhotra, it was Tomas Plekanec that would take important defensive-zone faceoffs and get the load of ice time when Montreal was a man down. Now, Malhotra is able to assume some of that responsibility, freeing Plekanec to take a more offensive bent. It also helps that he's been skating with better offensive players, like Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher.
