Current ranking: 3.3 goals per game (ninth in NHL)
Top scorers: D P.K. Subban (eight points), C Lars Eller (seven points), C Alex Galchenyuk (seven points)
Offensive outlook: The Montreal Canadiens appear to have found themselves on the road, reeling off three straight wins and outscoring opponents 11-2 away from the Bell Centre.
The Canadiens are one of the fastest-skating teams, and they demonstrated their offensive talent last year when they rose to the second seed in the Eastern Conference. While they had an end-of-season slump, they appear to be back on track in 2013-14.
They have a slew of gifted players who can create offense on their own. Subban, last year's Norris Trophy winner, is extremely talented, has a rocket shot, can carry the puck and is underrated defensively. Eller appears to be coming into his own, while Galchenyuk is just beginning to tap into his talent.
Max Pacioretty is probably the best player on the Habs, and he can carry the team when gets on a hot streak. Brendan Gallagher is gritty and opportunistic, while former Flyer Danny Briere wants to show that he is still a gifted offensive player.
