Paul Byron and Alexander Radulov scored shootout goals as the Canadiens beat the Senators 4-3 Saturday night.

Neither shooter was able to find the back of the net during regulation and they did not have an assist. Byron made three shots on goal during the contest. Radulov had only two, so the pair did not earn many fantasy points.

Paul Byron scored a goal in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Byron finally got the Canadiens on the board at the 12:42 mark of the third period to cut Chicago's lead to 3-1. Shea Weber made it 3-2 just a few minutes later, but Chicago added an empty netter to close out the game. Byron's goal production has been incredibly surprising this season. He's scored three goals in his last two games and he's already up to 19 goals in 2016-17 (previous career-high was 11). The speedster has accumulated 35 points in 69 games.

Paul Byron scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators.

The Canadiens found themselves down 1-0 heading into the third period, but they got goals from Brendan Gallagher and Byron to close out the game. Byron scored his goal on a breakaway with nine seconds remaining in regulation time. He also snapped his 13-game pointless drought in the process. Byron now has 15 goals and 15 assists in 64 games this season.

Paul Byron gave the Canadiens a scare during the pregame warmup when he stung number one goalie Carey Price with a shot to the shoulder.

However, it all worked out in the end. Price was OK to play and Byron ended up scoring the game winner in the shootout. "He felt bad, nobody wants to hit their goalie," said Price. "I'm happy he got his redemption." Now, Byron just needs to take care of his nine-game pointless slump.

Paul Byron capped off a frenetic minute of scoring in the third as the Canadiens beat the Rangers 5-4 Saturday night.

The Canadiens scored three goals in the span of a little more than a minute during the third. Alexei Emelin tied the game 3-3 at the 10:53 mark. Max Pacioretty gave them their first lead of the night 36 seconds later, with Byron scoring 26 seconds after Pacioretty. There was really not much of an opportunity to pull Henrik Lundqvist because the starting goalie Antii Raanta left the game at the end of the first with a lower body injury.

Paul Byron (upper body) will return to the lineup Monday night.

He missed Saturday's game against Toronto because of an upper-body injury.

Paul Byron suffered an upper-body injury in Wednesday's game against Dallas.

Jan 4 - 11:27 PM

This was Byron’s 11th assist and 12th goal of the season. He has been difficult to place-and-hold, however. In his last eight games he has scored two points on three separate occasions, but failed to score a single one in his other five attempts.
