The 24-year-old is hoping to have a better postseason than he did last year, when he suffered a concussion and a broken nose on a devastating hit in the playoff opener against Ottawa.

Description: Montreal center Lars Eller had two goals and had one assist, six SOG and a +2 in the season opener Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.

The 24-year-old Eller had eight goals, 22 assists, 84 SOG, 45 PIM and a +8 in 46 games last season and should challenge the 60-point mark in 2013-14.

Description: Montreal coach Michel Therrien was very pleased with Lars Eller's performance Wednesday against Ottawa. "Lars Eller was phenomenal," said Therrien. Eller was thrown together with Gabriel Dumont and Alex Galchenyuk and returned to his natural spot at center Wednesday. SOURCE: Montreal Gazette
Insight: Eller was a healthy scratch in several games earlier this season but he has three goals and seven assists over his last 13 games and has attempted 11 SOG over the last two. With Brandon Prust out, Montreal could keep this line together for a few more games.
 
3/11/2011 1:02:00 AM
Description: Eller did nothing Thursday night but has scored four goals over his past six games.
Insight: That's particularly noteworthy because the rookie scored only three in his first 57 of the season. Eller is still playing only about 12 minutes most nights, though, which will limit his chances. (RapidDraft.com)

Description: Lars Eller scored two goals in the first period of the Canadiens' 4-1 win over Boston on Tuesday. Yahoo Sports
Insight: Eller's effort will no doubt be overshadowed by the Zdeno Chara hit on Max Pacioretty late in the second period. For what it's worth, Eller has four points in his last five games and is starting to see more consistent icetime now.
