The Canadiens have relied on Nathan Beaulieu to play more minutes of late and he has responded by playing the best hockey of his career.
The 22-year-old averages over 15 minutes of ice per game, but he has played at least 23:45 in each of his last three games. "I feel like the game is slowing down for me," said Beaulieu. "After getting my first goal, I felt like so much came off my shoulders. I know it wasn't the prettiest one, not how I dreamed of it, but a goal's a goal…Things are coming together for me now." Beaulieu hasn't put up many points but that part of his game will come with time. Feb 22 - 9:29 AM

Nathan Beaulieu potted his first goal of the season in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to Ottawa.

Nathan Beaulieu will pair with Tom Gilbert on Montreal's third pair on Tuesday night against Vancouver.

He's been scratched for the past three games. Beaulieu has skated in 14 games with the Canadiens this season, but the acquisitions of Sergei Gonchar and Bryan Allen have squeezed him out of the lineup.

For the second consecutive game, Nathan Beaulieu and Drayson Bowman will be healthy scratches. This time against the Rangers on Sunday night.

Nathan Beaulieu and Drayson Bowman will be watching Montreal take on Boston on Saturday night.

With just five games and no points between them, there's little wonder why Coach Therrien may want to find softer competition for Beaulieu and Bowman.

Nathan Beaulieu will probably be going down to the minors soon.

Mike Weaver got back in the lineup Thursday after a one-game absence with an upper-body injury, which made Beaulieu a healthy scratch. Montreal also acquired Bryan Allen from Anaheim on Thursday, which could result in Beaulieu heading down to the AHL.

Nathan Beaulieu is a healthy scratch in Montreal's game against St. Louis on Thursday.

With veteran Mike Weaver returning to the lineup, there was no room in Montreal's top six for Beaulieu. The young defenseman had a bad turnover in Montreal's loss to Pittsburgh on Tuesday, which surely didn't help his cause.

Nathan Beaulieu saw limited ice time again on Sunday.

He made the most of his 6:34 of playing time by earning an assist on Tomas Plekanec's seventh goal of the year. Montreal has been dressing seven defensemen for the past few games, which hasn't presented much ice time for Beaulieu. He skated just 8:25 the game before on Saturday and 6:43 during last Thursday's match.

Nathan Beaulieu will be a healthy scratch Saturday night against the Avalanche.

The fine play of Jared Tinordi is keeping Beaulieu in the press box. He will sit there with Dale Weise Saturday evening.

Despite having two young defensemen in their lineup, the Montreal Canadiens were still able to come back from a three-goal deficit and defeat the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday.

Nathan Beaulieu was partly to blame on the Flyers’ first goal, while Jarred Tinordi allowed Wayne Simmonds to get past him on the second goal. "With young kids, they’re going to make mistakes," said Habs’ coach Michel Therrien. "But it’s a process and they’re going to get better and better." As they grow in confidence, Beaulieu should become a strong puck mover and point producer from the backend, while Tinordi is more of a shot-blocker and physical presence.
