Lars Eller, a new Star is Born?

By Mitch Melnick

The stat sheet, as usual, only tells part of the tale. Lars Eller was the first Hab since Jan Bulis to score four goals in one game. First since Alex Tanguay to register five points. First Montreal forward to score a hat trick since Mike Cammalleri on Centennial night 2009 versus Boston. First since, unofficially, Cammalleri in 2010 to score on a penalty shot (obviously saving that move he made on Chris Mason for a shootout. Eller did know it was Mason in goal by then, didn't he?). Finished the night +4. But I think the game turned when Eller scored his second of the night at the 2:41 mark of the third period. That moment actually began deep in the Canadiens zone with a face off to the left of Carey Price after Josh Gorges had iced the puck (after the Canadiens had just killed off a penalty to maintain their slim one goal lead).
