Plekanec, who has three goals in the first two games, has been able to play more offensively because Manny Malhotra is taking on more of the defensive responsibilities that burdened Plekanec in recent seasons, the Montreal Gazette reports. "[Malhotra's] taken on the defensive roles that Pleky was playing and, as a coach, I'm able to use Pleky in more offensive roles, and so far it's been pretty good," said head coach Michel Therrien.

Prior to Malhotra, it was Plekanec that would take important defensive-zone faceoffs and get the load of ice time when Montreal was a man down. Now, Malhotra is able to assume some of that responsibility, freeing Plekanec to take a more offensive bent. It also helps that he's been skating with better offensive players, like Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher.
