P. A. Parenteau RW MON 6 Days

Parenteau scored two goals Thursday in a win over Boston, though the second was an empty-netter.

They were Parenteau's first two goals of the year, but he's actually on a point-per-game pace early on here, with the two tallies and three helpers in five contests. Parenteau should keep seeing good offensive opportunities in Montreal, so he's a solid fantasy roll.

Parenteau, who started Saturday night's game on the third line, was promoted to the second line with left wing Alex Galchenyuk and center Tomas Plekanec for the third period. He had an assist on Plekanec's goal and now has three helpers in his first three games with the new team.

The second line had a hand in two of Montreal's three goals and keyed a third consecutive game of last-game heroics for the 3-0 Canadiens. The Plekanec line has been Montreal's most prolific thus far, so at this time, it's a good landing spot for Parenteau.

Parenteau, who started Thursday night on the top line, was eventually moved to the third line with Lars Eller and Rene Bourque in Montreal's 2-1 shootout win over Washington.

This was not a reflection of Parenteau's work, but rather it was head coach Michel Therrien tweaking the lines after his team was out-shot, 15-2, in the first period. Parenteau had what appeared to be a goal in the third period, but it was waved off due to Rene Bourque interfering with the goalie.
