  • Canadiens' Mike Matheson: Pots shorty

    Matheson scored a shorthanded goal and posted a plus-5 rating during Sunday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    The goal is Matheson's 10th of the campaign and his first point in five games. Matheson has 48 points in 70 games, and he has seen ice time in excess of 28 minutes in multiple recent contests, but his ceiling is capped playing for a Montreal team that averages just 2.71 goals per game -- the fifth-worst mark in the league.
