News: 2 days agoPerreault scored three goals on a team-leading six shots in Saturday's 6-1 win over Detroit. He also logged a plus-4 rating.
Spin: Perreault's hat trick was of the natural variety and turned a 3-1 Montreal lead into a 6-1 rout and the team's first win of the season. The goals were also the first of the year for Perreault, who signed with the Canadiens after spending the previous seven seasons with Winnipeg. He snapped one from the left dot in transition to make it 4-1 midway through the second, banged home a loose puck just over two minutes later and put away an empty-netter late in the third. Perreault is now one-third of the way to matching the nine goals he scored 56 games for the Jets last season.
