Brendan Gallagher broke a 4 game pointless streak by crashing the net for rebounds and out-waiting Ryan Miller for his 12 of the season, and the Canadiens still refused to back off.

Drawing Buffalo into a trio of foolish penalties, they finally capitalized off the stick of Andrei Markov. P.K. Subban's assist on the play keeps him atop the leaderboard for scoring from defensemen. Subban and Markov have 22 points on the powerplay each.

20 more minutes to clinch a playoff spot.
