Petry potted his first goal of the playoffs in Sunday's Game 2 loss to the Lightning.

The goal -- Petry's first career playoff point -- gave the Habs an early lead, but the Bolts stormed back with the next five goals to take a 2-0 series lead. The defenseman went on a six-game point streak toward the end of the regular season, but is not generally a reliable source to fill out the scoresheet.

Petry scored a goal and had the only assist on Lars Eller's game-winner in overtime Thursday against Detroit.

After initially not doing anything offensively following his trade to Montreal, Petry's suddenly lit aflame, putting together an out-of-nowhere six-game point streak. You can't count on it to continue, but this outburst should be in the back of fantasy owners' minds come next year's drafts.

Petry netted his fifth goal of the season in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Lightning.

Petry has been struggling to work his way onto the scoresheet since being acquired by the Canadiens just before the trade deadline --failing to register a point in his first 12 games in Montreal -- but he's now recorded a point in each of his last two. The goal ends an even longer drought dating back to Jan. 9 and brings him within a point of matching last season's total output of 17 points.
