Montreal Canadiens News and Notes

  • Cole Caufield has played only five NHL games. He’s already played the OT hero in two. [Sportsnet | NHL | Montreal Gazette]
  • Caufield’s two OT goals earn him an NHL first. [Twitter]
  • Not to be out done, Nick Suzuki has nine points in six games, which both gives him an astonishing percentage of the Habs’ points in that time, and has helped him hit a bonus. [Twitter]
  • Coming into Monday’s game, Montreal hoped to stop Matthews with their physicality. Their success so far is debatable, but they’ve got a few more chances to make it work. [TSN]
