"With young players you see the improvement from one year to another," said coach Michel Therrien. "He's playing with confidence, he has poise. He's a guy that players want to play with because he's doing the right thing. He doesn't do anything fancy, but he's responsible." Danault has six goals and 13 points in 31 games this year.

Phillip Danault scored a goal and an assist in Thursday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.

Not bad for a guy who was a game time decision because of an illness. The Canadiens put together an impressive performance considering it was their first game back from a long road trip. They were also without Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais tonight. In their absence, Danault stepped up. He opened the scoring by tipping in a Nathan Beaulieu shot in the first period and he also assisted on Artturi Lehkonen's second period goal. Danault has six goals and five assists in 27 games this season. He doesn't have any value in standard leagues.
