MONTREAL - One thing the Montreal Canadiens haven’t had much of lately is scoring depth.
Injuries and ineffective players left them top heavy up front last season.
Shut down their top line of Max Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Erik Cole and opponents were a long way towards beating the Habs, which happened often last season on the way to a last place finish in the Eastern Conference.
The Canadiens showed signs of remedying that problem this season in their 6-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres at the Bell Centre on Saturday.
