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.

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).

P. A. Parenteau won't play Wednesday night.

PA Parenteau has been practicing with his teammates and has been cleared to play, but will not dress against Toronto on Saturday night.

"I know we have a great team but I know when I'm 100 percent healthy I can definitely help them. I'm working really hard to get my spot back," Parenteau said. Through 40 games this season, he has 15 points, 20 PIMs, and 25 hits.
Feb 28 - 6:21 PM

Now that Christian Thomas has been returned to AHL Hamilton, look for PA Parenteau to make his return to Montreal's lineup on Saturday night versus Toronto.

Parenteau has not played since mid-January due to a concussion, but wasn't having a great season through his first 40 games. With just six goals, 15 points, 20 PIMs, and 25 hits, it's difficult to recommend Parenteau for your squad down the stretch.

Parenteau has just six goals and 15 points in 40 games this season.
