Montreal coach Michel Therrien has been impressed with P.A. Parenteau's play in the postseason.
Parenteau scored the game-winning goal in the third period of Saturday's 2-1 win. "P.A. is having a good playoff," said coach Michel Therrien. "I like his intensity. He hit a post early but he kept working and he got rewarded. It was a great play by P.K. Subban and (Parenteau) just roofed it." Parenteau hasn't been as productive as Montreal would have hoped throughout the 2014-15 season, but he can make up for it if he keeps playing well into the spring. May 10 - 10:45 AM

P.A. Parenteau notched the game-winning goal for the Canadiens in their 2-1 triumph over the Lightning in Game 5 on Saturday night.

The Lightning now lead the second-round series 3-2, and it's the first time in Canadiens history they have forced Game 6 when trailing 3-0 in a series. Parenteau scored with about four minutes left in the game, answering Steven Stamkos’ marker that came six minutes earlier. Parenteau’s goal was his first in seven games he’s played in the playoffs, though he now has points in two in a row. Devante Smith-Pelly also scored his first of the playoffs. P.K. Subban played a game-high 26:07.
May 9 - 10:02 PM

P.A. Parenteau will be back in the Canadiens lineup for game six against Ottawa on Sunday night.

The 32-year-old played in game one of the series, but he suffered an injury in that game. Parenteau was deemed healthy enough to return a few days ago, but Montreal hasn't changed their lineup. The Habs have lost two in a row and have struggled to score, so Parenteau will be a welcome addition at this point.
Apr 26 - 11:32 AM

There will not be any line up changes for the Canadiens as they look to eliminate the Senators on Friday night in Game Five.

PA Parenteau will be joined by fellow forward Manny Malhotra, as defenders Mike Weaver and Sergei Gonchar watch from the press box. Unfortunately, there isn't a player in the bunch worth recommending should they crack the line up later on in the playoffs. Parenteau has had his worst career season, primarily derailed by injury. And Gonchar's age seems to have finally caught up with the veteran defender who debuted with Washington in 1995.
Apr 24 - 6:16 PM

P.A. Parenteau and Sergei Gonchar are among the healthy scratches for the Canadiens for Wednesday night’s Game 4 against the Senators.

Parenteau has recovered from his upper body injury but will remain a scratch while the Habs continue to roll versus the Senators. Joining Parenteau and Gonchar in the press box are Daniel Carr, Mike Condon, Darren Dietz, Charles Hudon, Brett Lernout, Joey MacDonald, Manny Malhotra, Christian Thomas, and Mike Weaver. Greg Pateryn will make his playoff debut Wednesday with Nathan Beaulieu having been ruled out for the remainder of the series with the Senators.

P.A. Parenteau (upper body) is ready to return to the lineup, but he will not play in Sunday's game against Ottawa.

Parenteau is apparently over his ailment but Michel Therrien doesn't want to pull out any of his current forwards. Parenteau has dealt with some injuries and inconsistency throughout the season, but he does have a little fantasy upside if/when he gets back into the lineup. Devante Smith-Pelly's improved play is a big reason why Parenteau doesn't have a spot in the lineup.
Apr 19 - 5:05 PM

Montreal Canadiens' head coach Michel Therrien doesn't expect P.A. Parenteau to be available for game three of their series against Ottawa on Sunday.

Parenteau practiced with the team on Saturday, but he is still dealing with the upper-body injury that forced him to miss game two. He is considered day-to-day right now. Montreal leads the series 2-0.
Apr 19 - 8:52 AM

P. A. Parenteau (upper body) will not be available for Friday's game against Ottawa.

Parenteau sustained the ailment in Game 1 of the first round series. He had eight goals and 22 points in 56 contests in the regular season.
Apr 17 - 2:39 PM

P. A. Parenteau sustained an upper-body injury in Wednesday's playoff opener.

He is considered day-to-day at this time. Parenteau picked up three shots in 12:13 of ice time in Game 1's 4-3 win over Ottawa.
Apr 16 - 2:40 PM

P.A. Parenteau scored a goal and added an assist Sunday in the Montreal Canadiens' 4-1 triumph over the Panthers in Florida.

It was Parenteau's eighth goal and 14th assist of the season. Tomas Plekanec also scored a goal and contributed an assist to Montreal's win. Plekanec has 24 goals and 33 assists. Also notching goals for the Canadiens were Brendan Gallagher (24th) and Devante Smith-Pelly (sixth). Montreal had lost three games in a row going into Florida. Max Pacioretty, who leads the Canadiens with 37 goals and 67 points, left the game at 5:48 of the first period when he hit his head against the boards after being checked by Dmitry Kulikov and then getting his feet tangled with Panthers defenseman Alex Petrovic. The Canadiens (48-22-10) moved two points ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning atop the Atlantic Division. Each team has two games remaining, and the Lightning hold the tiebreaker for regulation/overtime wins (46-42).
Apr 5 - 7:39 PM

P. A. Parenteau has been playing with David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty.

He earned an assist on Desharnais' goal on Tuesday against Nashville. Parenteau has collected four points, including three assists, in seven games since he returned from a concussion.
Mar 26 - 11:15 AM

P. A. Parenteau scored in Monday's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

It marked his seventh goal of the season and his first since Nov. 28 against Buffalo. Parenteau has 17 points in 44 games this year and he's generated two in his last two outings.
Mar 17 - 9:33 AM

P.A. Parenteau picked up an assist in Saturday's 3-1 win over the New York Islanders.

Parenteau picked up a secondary assist on Tomas Plekanec's second period goal. The 31-year-old is having a season to forget in Montreal. He has battled concussion issues for most of 2015 and when he has been in the lineup, he just hasn't produced. This was Parenteau's first point since December 23rd, which was also against the Islanders. He has six goals and 16 points in 43 games.
Mar 15 - 10:42 AM

P. A. Parenteau got back into Montreal's lineup on Thursday night.

In his first game since Mar. 2, he logged 16:34 of ice time and posted a minus-1 rating in a 5-2 loss to Ottawa. Parenteau skated on the second line with Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk.
Mar 13 - 10:59 AM

P. A. Parenteau is slated to be a healthy scratch Tuesday.

He is fully recovered from a concussion, but he may have a tough time cracking Montreal's lineup. Parenteau, who has six goals and 15 points in 41 games, will have to wait for his next opportunity.
