Tuesday night’s game against the Buffalo Sabres had some good news and bad news.  The good news?  Habs prospect Jacob De La Rose was called up from Hamilton for his NHL debut and played well in front of the Bell Centre crowd.  The bad news was the Habs allowing a team who hadn’t notched a win in their last 14 games to finally earn their first victory in 2015. Brandon Prust did score a goal in the first period, after the Canadiens had already given one up.  The team seemed uncoordinated and, despite a goal by David Desharnais in the third period, they couldn’t do enough to extend the Sabres’ losing streak.  Final score: Sabres, 3-2.

Things didn’t look much better in the first period of their next game, against the New Jersey Devils.  Montreal gave up the first tally less than two minutes into the game, and began the second period without having scored a goal.  Then the power play found its legs in the second period, with Andrei Markov, Lars Eller, and Tomas Plekanec all scoring on the man advantage.  But the scoring didn’t end there: Plekanec lit the lamp again in the third period, along with two more goals contributed by Dale Weise.  Final score: Canadiens, 6-2.

The excitement spilled over to Boston on Sunday night, as the Canadiens traveled to TD Garden to face the Bruins.  Carey Price made a number of highlight-reel saves while Weise, Max Pacioretty, and Markov made sure that the visitors tallied two points on the night.  Final score: Canadiens, 3-1.
