Eller generated an assist and put six shots on net in Thursday's 6-2 massacre of the Bolts.

Eller's outputs in Game 4 exceeded the entirety of his production from the first three games of the series, when he managed only five shot attempts while failing to score or dish out an assist. The 25-year-old has shown flashes of offensive brilliance for various stretches of his career, and if Thursday's performance is able to ignite him, the Habs might have a fighting chance to overcome a 3-1 series deficit.

Eller scored a short-handed goal in Wednesday night's 4-3 win over Ottawa in game one of their playoff series.

The goal came when Montreal was down a man for five minutes, courtesy of a P.K. Subban slashing major. Ottawa scored twice during its power play, so the Eller goal was a stabilizer at a time when the game could have swung the Senators' way. If you recall, Eller was Montreal's postseason scoring leader in 2014.

Eller scored a goal and added an assist in Saturday's win over the Islanders. He now has four points (two goals, two assists) in his last four games.

Eller snapped a 14-game goal drought when he potted the game-winning goal in Saturday's victory over Arizona. It was his 10th goal of the season.

It's been a tough slog for Eller who has struggled to take his game to the next level. He did manage 30 points in 26 games during the lockout-shortened season, but right now, he has a mere 18 in 61 contests. There's still time for him to grow into his game a bit, but our expectations have been sufficiently lowered. The speedy forward may simply be a great third-line guy with awkward finish.
