Opponent Notes:
P.K. Subban is pointless in the last four games. However, he does have 12 shots on goal in the first two games of the series.

- Brendan Gallagher has just one goal in the last nine games.

- Thomas Vanek is pointless with a -3 in the last three games.

- Tomas Plekanec has just one goal in his last ten games.

- Max Pacioretty has points in four of the last five games (3g, 2a).

- Alex Galchenyuk, who had been out with a knee injury since April 9, went pointless in his return to the lineup in Game 2.

- The Canadiens are 0-for-7 on the power play in the series and have allowed four goals in 10 power play opportunities against.

- Three goals in less than a minute to take a 5-1 lead in the first period? Yes, please…
