Hurricanes-Canadiens Preview

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens' top line held the fort while the team waited for its secondary scoring to finally return. Now that the other lines are joining in, coach Claude Julien is searching for a solution to his suddenly stagnant first unit.

While the likes of Paul Byron, Phillip Danault, Artturi Lehkonen and Tomas Plekanec -- among several others -- finally found the back of the net in recent games, Montreal's top trio of Max Pacioretty, Alex Galchenyuk and Alexander Radulov has cooled off, accounting for one point in the last three games.

Pacioretty has just two goals in his last 10 games and Radulov, who was regularly recording multi-point games through the first two-thirds of the season, has one goal and six points in his last 14 games, with four of those points coming in one game.
