Bourque's Hat Trick Carries Habs In Game 5

News: Rene Bourque scored a trio of goals, went plus-3 and ended up with 17 PIM in Tuesday's Game 5 win over the Rangers.
Analysis: A massive night for Rene Bourque, who's now got eight playoff goals -- putting him in a three-way tie for second-most in the league. But he took a game misconduct for a dirty crosscheck at the end of the game, which could result in a suspension.

Habs' Bourque Sits Out Morning Skate

News: Rene Bourque did not take part in Saturday's morning skate.
Analysis: The team is calling it a "therapy day" for Rene Bourque, who battled through an illness earlier in the week. He may not be quite at full strength, but there's been nothing to suggest Bourque, who leads the Canadiens in goals this postseason with four, won't be on the ice for Saturday's Game 5 against Boston.

Habs' Bourque Set To Play On Tuesday

News: Rene Bourque (flu) will play in Tuesday's game against the Bruins, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque missed Monday's practice with the flu, but he's slated to suit up for Tuesday's Game 3. After scoring nine goals in 63 regular season contests, Bourque's production has picked up in the postseason. He currently leads the Habs with four playoff goals (to go along with one assist) in six games.

Habs' Bourque Returns To The Ice On Tuesday

News: Rene Bourque (illness) was present for Tuesday's morning skate, NESN.com reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque didn't practice Monday as he was dealing with a case of the flu, but his presence at the Habs' morning skate bodes well for his status for Tuesday's Game 3 against the Bruins.

Habs' Bourque Misses Practice

News: Rene Bourque (illness) was not at practice Monday, TVA's Renaud Lavoie reports.
Analysis: Though Rene Bourque is evidently feeling under the weather, coach Michel Therrien noted Monday that hopefully the forward will play Tuesday against the Bruins. After a regular season in which he recorded just nine goals and 16 points in 63 games, Bourque has already notched four goals and five points in six postseason contest to date.

Habs' Bourque Producing In Playoffs

News: Rene Bourque's productive playoffs continued in Thursday's Game 1 against Boston, as he tallied a goal, an assist and a plus-2 rating in the double-overtime win.
Analysis: Rene Bourque's been a point-per-game player so far in the playoffs, with four goals and an assist in five contests, and he's got a plus-6 rating to boot. Impressive -- and surprising -- work from the winger, who tallied only 16 points in 63 regular-season games.

Habs' Bourque Stays Active

News: Rene Bourque had seven shots on goal and four hits in Tuesday night's series-clinching win over Tampa Bay.
Analysis: Rene Bourque had himself a nice run against the Lightning, with 22 shots and three goals in the four-game sweep.

Canadiens' Bourque Scores Another Goal

News: Rene Bourque scored a goal on eight shots on net in Montreal's Game 3 win over the Lightning on Sunday.
Analysis: Rene Bourque only scored nine goals all season, but he now has three in his last two games, and has looked good. It probably won't last, but he has two 27-goal seasons to his name.

Bourque Boosts Montreal

News: Rene Bourque scored twice in Friday's 4-1 win over Tampa Bay in Game 2 of their Atlantic Division semifinal series, his first points of the playoffs.
Analysis: Rene Bourque's first goal saw him dart through the Tampa Bay defense and deftly finish past Anders Lindback. Bourque had been rather inconsistent this season, as his nine goals didn't exactly mesh well with his high cap hit. The odds of him scoring consistently in the postseason are limited if his regular season bears any meaning.

Bourque Logs Assist In Canadiens' Loss

News: Rene Bourque logged an assist in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to Chicago.
Analysis: The eight-year veteran has been an intermittent victim of the healthy scratch treatment recently, so it's nice to see him get off the schneid. However, it's just his third point in the last 13 games. With 15 points in 60 games played, Rene Bourque is in the midst of the worst offensive season of his career and is in danger of being left off the active roster for the first round of the playoffs.

Habs' Bourque Back In Lineup Saturday

News: Rene Bourque is back in the lineup for Saturday's game against Detroit.
Analysis: George Parros replaced Rene Bourque on Friday, but the Habs will go with a bit of skill in place of brute strength for Saturday's game. Parros has logged less than 98 minutes on the ice this season, compared to 80 minutes in the penalty box.

Habs' Bourque A Healthy Scratch

News: George Parros will replace Rene Bourque in Friday's lineup against the Senators, TVA's Renaud Lavoie reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque has been in and out of the lineup throughout the season, but Friday's scratch comes as a bit of a surprise. He saw just 7:58 of ice time in Monday's game, after topping 11 minutes in each of the previous five games.

Habs' Bourque: Goal And Assist In Return

News: Rene Bourque, who had been scratched for five straight games, scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over Toronto. He played 11:52 and fired six shots on net.
Analysis: His coach wanted intensity and it looks like he delivered. This should earn him another start or two, and expect him to continue to push hard. He might even surprise from a fantasy perspective because he has something to prove.

Habs' Bourque Likely To Play Saturday

News: Rene Bourque practiced on the third line during Friday's practice, the Montreal Gazette reports. The winger has been a healthy scratch the past five games.
Analysis: It looks like Rene Bourque will be the roster replacement for the injured Brandon Prust, who will miss the rest of the regular season with an upper-body injury. Coach Michel Therrien acknowledged speaking with Bourque earlier this week and let the winger know he wants see some intensity from him when he does get back on the ice.

Habs Scratch Bourque

News: Rene Bourque was a healthy scratch Wednesday night against Boston.
Analysis: With Brandon Prust activated from injured reserve and ready to go, someone had to sit, and it might as well be the guy who's minus-5 with just 12 points in 53 games.

Habs' Bourque Covers Loss Of Pacioretty

News: Rene Bourque was promoted in-game to skate on the top line in place of an injured Max Pacioretty (back) in Saturday night's 4-1 win over Carolina, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: Pacioretty left the ice in the first period after being run into the goal, forcing coach Michel Therrien to juggle lines the rest of the night. Rene Bourque had himself a pretty good night, setting up David Desharnais' goal in the second period. He's been playing well of late, but now gets a couple of weeks off because of the Olympics.

Bourque's Goal Boosts Habs

News: Rene Bourque was the only man to penetrate either netminder in Tuesday's 2-0 win over Calgary, scoring a second-period goal that held up as the winner.
Analysis: The Habs' other goal was into an empty net. Unfortunately, this was just Rene Bourque's eighth goal and 10th point of the year, as the two-time 50-point man (back in his golden years with Calgary) has been a total disaster for his fantasy owners this season.

Habs' Bourque Grabs Assist

News: Rene Bourque had an assist, two shots on goal and two hits in Tuesday night's 3-0 win over Carolina. It was just the second assist and ninth point in 40 games played this season for Bourque.
Analysis: Rene Bourque looked pretty active on a re-jiggered third line with Lars Eller and Brandon Prust. We've seen Bourque play with energy before, but it usually doesn't sustain. At any rate, he has two points in the last four games, which qualifies as a hot streak for Bourque.

Habs' Bourque Nets Goal Wednesday

News: Rene Bourque punched in his seventh goal of the season in Wednesday's game against the Penguins.
Analysis: Rene Bourque has been working on the third line with Danny Briere and Brandon Prust after being on the near healthy scratch list recently. It was his first point since Dec. 2, snapping a long scoring drought.

Habs' Bourque Practices On Third Line

News: Rene Bourque, who was a healthy scratch Saturday night, practiced on the third line during Monday's practice, Hockey Inside Out reports.
Analysis: Rene Bourque, who skated with Daniel Briere and Michael Bournival on Monday, has just seven points in 36 games and is minus-4. Heading into Wednesday night's game in Pittsburgh, it's unclear whether Bourque will suit up. Montreal recalled Louis Leblanc on Monday to be on hand as a spare forward.

Habs Scratch A Healthy Bourque

News: Rene Bourque was a healthy scratch for Saturday night's game against Toronto. AHL scrapper Joonas Nattinen was called and took Bourque's spot in the lineup.
Analysis: Nattinen skated just two shifts and was sent back to Hamilton following the game. Barring any other roster moves, Rene Bourque should be back for Wednesday's road game in Pittsburgh. But that's of little comfort to Bourque owners. He has just seven points this season and none since Dec. 2.

Habs' Bourque To Return Tuesday

News: Rene Bourque (upper body) will return to the lineup Tuesday against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Rene Bourque skated within the last week and progressed enough to be cleared for a return to the ice Tuesday. He's expected to play on a line with Travis Moen and Brandon Prust in his first game back from IR.

News: Rene Bourque (upper body) will not travel with the team to Philadelphia, John Lu of TSN reports.
