Alex Galchenyuk scored his 19th goal of the year in a 3-1 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday.

Galchenyuk broke the goose egg with less than two minutes to go but it wasn't enough to rally the Habs in Anaheim. Montreal fired 38 shots at Ducks' goalie John Gibson but could only get the one goal past him. Andrei Markov and David Desharnais drew assists on the lone marker. Galchenyuk has 19 goals and 40 points in 62 games in his breakout out year.
Mar 5 - 2:24 AM

Montreal's Alex Galchenyuk was the hero Tuesday as he registered two goals and an assist in a 5-2 win over the Blues.

If you were uncertain about whether we're witnessing Galchenyuk's breakout, question it no longer. With 39 points in 58 games, he's on pace for about 55, but has only scratched the surface of his potential. Brendan Gallagher also potted a pair of goals in the winning effort while Michael Bournival also found the back of the net.

Feb 13 - 9:25 AM

Alex Galchenyuk scored both of Montreal's goals in their 3-2 loss to Arizona.

Galchenyuk gave the Canadiens a two-goal lead in the first period but things fell apart for after that. Montreal stopped firing pucks at the net and they didn't create many offensive opportunities as the game wore on. The 20-year-old now has 15 goals and 34 points in 49 games this season. He started the game at left wing on Montreal's second line, but he replaced Lars Eller (injured) at center on the Habs' third line in the final period. Galchenyuk has already set new career-highs in goals and points.
Feb 1 - 4:08 PM

Alex Galchenyuk is entering Thursday's game against the Rangers on a three-game goal streak.

Galchenyuk has shifted back to left wing after a brief trial at center. He is playing on the Habs' second line with David Desharnais and Brendan Gallagher. The 20-year-old's long-term future may be down the middle, but for now he feels more comfortable on the wing. He has 13 goals and 32 points in 46 games this season.
Jan 29 - 6:49 PM

Alex Galchenyuk scored his 13th goal of the campaign in Montreal's 3-2 win over the Stars Tuesday night.

Jan 28 - 12:30 AM

Jan 21 - 8:54 AM

Alex Galchenyuk scored a goal in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Islanders.

After getting some extended time at center, the Habs moved Galchenyuk back to the wing for this game. It was his first goal of the new year and his first since December 20th. The 20-year-old's long-term future will undoubtedly be as a center but Habs' coach Michel Therrien sees him as more of a winger right now. Galchenyuk has 11 goals and 29 points in 44 games.
