Galchenyuk dished out two assists, put six shots on goal, registered two PIM and went plus-1 in Thursday's sweep-avoiding win over the Lightning.

Galchenyuk made himself a target for criticism with a streak of invisible performances recently, as Thursday's two points snapped a streak of seven playoff games without the young Russian registering on the scoresheet. He'd been particularly rough lately, registering only two shots in the last four games. A sudden and blistering Galchenyuk breakout is just the kind of miracle that the Canadiens need to complete the long and difficult comeback attempt ahead of them, but consistency has not been his strong suit.

Galchenyuk took three minor penalties and missed a couple of scoring chances during Friday's double-overtime loss to Tampa Bay, the Montreal Gazette reports. The struggling young forward was removed from the power-play unit Friday and for a brief spell was demoted to fourth-line duty.

Galchenyuk, who opened the first-round series against Ottawa with points in the first two games, has been silent since. Head coach Michel Therrien continues to preach patience in the development of Galchenyuk and rejected the notion of some tough love, such as making him a healthy scratch for a game or two. Still, this is his third NHL season and the Habs are waiting to see some consistency from the 21-year-old.

Galchenyuk assisted on two goals in Thursday night's 5-4 shootout loss to Washington.

It's been a long time since Galchenyuk's registered a multi-point game -- going back to Feb. 24's three-pointer against the Blues. He has just six points in the previous 18 games. Galchenyuk's game improves each year, but the Habs are expecting more from he the 21-year-old forward.

Galchenyuk scored his first goal in 12 games when he tallied his 20th of the season in Saturday's overtime win over the Panthers. It came on the power play.

He's been quiet in his last 16 games, recording just four points (two goals, two assists). He has been progressively improving his offensive game each season and his 43 points this year have done just that. But we'd like to see a bigger jump next season. It'll be his fourth season, so he could flirt with 60.

Galchenyuk had an assist and one shot on goal in Saturday night's 3-1 win over the Islanders.

Points have been few and far between for Glachenyuk, who has two points in the past nine games. He's also minus-6 in that run of games. Going back to the end of January, you can see three-and four-game stretches without points. With just nine points in the past 21 games, Glachenyuk's value is more future than it is present.
