Danault had gone pointless in his last four straight games before Wednesday. He hasn't scored since Oct. 28, a four-point night against the New York Rangers. Danault has three goals and 12 points this season. He isn't the most consistent fantasy threat, if you're thinking about adding him.

Danault also helped set up goals by Alex Galchenyuk and Max Pacioretty. The Canadiens forward is now up to three goals and four assists in 11 games this season.
