Andrew Shaw scored the only goal in a 2-1 loss to the Anaheim Ducks Tuesday night.

Shaw earned a goal in his first game of the season, but then went 13 more without another. He turned a little corner on November 12th in a 5-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings with his second goal of the year and he has had three more in the past eight games. That makes him an interesting dark horse.

It's been a busy off-season for Andrew Shaw.

He was traded to the Montreal Canadiens, signed to a six-year, $23.4 million contract and earlier this month he announced his engagement to Chaunette Boulerice on Twitter. "We're both excited to move into it and get settled in," said Shaw, who bought a house in Montreal. "It's been pretty exciting. A lot of big changes in my life for the better. I'm excited for it. ... I'm close to home, playing for an Original Six, the Montreal Canadiens. I'm excited for it." He is expected to add some toughness and leadership to the Canadiens, but he isn't likely to bring much to the table offensively.
