BUFFALO – The Habs scored four goals, but it wasn’t enough to leave Buffalo with two points.

Buoyed by a pair of two-goal nights by Sven Andrighetto and Alex Galcheyuk, the Habs were able to light the lamp four times in Buffalo, marking the 29th time they’ve scored three or more goals in a game this season. That’s been a recipe for success for the Canadiens throughout the campaign, as the team had gone 24-2-2 when getting three or more in a game – and 16-0-0 when scoring four or more – prior to Friday’s game against the Sabres.

MONTREAL – Tomas Plekanec’s line might be firing on all cylinders, but counting on a single trio to deliver the bulk of the offensive punch isn’t a recipe for success down the stretch.

Plekanec himself – flanked by Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher – has torched the opposition for three goals and eight points over the last four games, helping to get the Canadiens back on track heading into a three-game road swing featuring stops in Buffalo, Arizona and Colorado over the next six days.
