Thomas Vanek broke out of his scoring slump with the Montreal Canadiens in a big way. Phoenix Suns Gear . The Habs hope their recently-acquired winger can stay hot on Thursday night in a home matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Catch the action on TSN Habs starting at 7:30pm et/ 4:30pm pt. The Canadiens acquired Vanek from the New York Islanders prior to the trade deadline in an effort to upgrade their offense for a playoff push. However, Vanek failed to score a goal in his first five games with Montreal, held to just a single assist. The two-time 40-goal scorer finally broke out in Tuesdays big 6-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche, netting a hat trick to spoil Patrick Roys return to Montreal. Roy made his first appearance in Montreal as head coach of the Colorado Avalanche and received a warm reception early in the game before Vanek stole the show. "It was unbelievable," Vanek said of his three-goal night. "This place is electric." Brandon Prust had a goal and an assist for the Canadiens, who have won three in a row. Travis Moen and Dale Weise also lit the lamp, while Carey Price made 25 saves. Prust will sit out tonights contest with an upper-body injury after skating for only 10 minutes at Thursdays morning skate. Ryan White draws into the lineup in his place. Montreals current win streak has it tied for second place with the Tampa Bay Lightning in the Atlantic Division with 83 points. That is three ahead of the fourth-place Toronto Maple Leafs. Columbus is also pushing for a playoff bid as it sits two points behind the New York Rangers for third place in the Metropolitan Division. The Blue Jackets are also even with the Washington Capitals with 76 points, but have two games in hand to hold the current tiebreaker for the second wild card position in the Eastern Conference. The Blue Jackets were riding a seven-game point streak going into Tuesdays home matchup with the Carolina Hurricanes and fell in defeat 3-1. Columbus was nearly shut out before Boone Jenner lit the lamp with 50 seconds to go, deflecting Ryan Johansens shot past Carolina goaltender Anton Khudobin. Still, the Blue Jackets fell to 6-1-1 in their last eight games. Sergei Bobrovsky gave up three goals on 20 shots through two periods, while Curtis McElhinney did not face a shot in the third period during his relief appearance. Columbus outshot Carolina 19-0 in the third period. "We attempted 79 (shots) -- 47 were on net," said Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards. "It seemed like we had some quality chances. We hit a couple posts. We had our opportunities." The Blue Jackets activated forward Jared Boll from injured reserve on Wednesday. He had missed the past 45 games due to a torn ankle tendon suffered in late November. The 27-year-old scored one goal and racked up 38 penalty minutes in 21 games before suffering the injury. The Blue Jackets have lost both of their previous meetings with the Canadiens this season, including a 5-3 loss in Montreal on Oct. 17. Charles Barkley Jersey .

The result was a late-season game with a preseason feel, noteworthy for Alex Ovechkins NHL-leading 51st goal and a shutout from the goalie who was seemingly skittish about facing his former team earlier in the week. Ovechkin and the Capitals beat the Blackhawks 4-0 on Friday night, an impressive-looking result that didnt mean much. Washington still isnt going to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007, and Chicago is locked into finishing third in the Central Division. "Theyre getting prepared for the playoffs and resting up a bit," Capitals forward Eric Fehr said, "so you dont want to take too much out of a game like that." Jay Beagle had his first career two-goal game, and Nicklas Backstrom also scored as the Capitals won their fourth straight, a winning streak thats rings hollow in D.C. "We want to finish off good," Backstrom said. "The last few games weve been playing all right, even if the games are a little more like a scrimmage." Ovechkins first-period goal -- a one-timer from the back edge of the left circle -- was his 24th on the power play, a Capitals franchise record and the most in the NHL since Steven Stamkos had 24 in the 2009-10 season. Ovechkins power-play output underscores his lack of scoring at even strength over the final six weeks of the season, as well as his minus-35 rating that is among the worst in the league. "Its pretty hard to be mentally ready for that kind of game. ... But soon its going to be, like, five months, play golf and do some stuff," Ovechkin said. "Youre probably going to miss hockey, so thats why you give everything and enjoy your moment." Jaroslav Halak made 34 saves in his first shutout since the trade deadline deal that brought him to Washington from the St. Louis Blues. It was also his first game since a bizarre episode on Tuesday, when he didnt play against the Blues because, according to Washington coach Adam Oates, the goalie wasnt "100 per cent comfortable" with the prospect of facing his former team for the first time. Dan Majerle Jersey. Halaks agent disputed Oates account and said any private conversations between player and coach shouldnt have been made public. Oates said before Fridays game that he had spoken to Halak and things were "all good." After the game, Halak essentially ignored questions about the topic, other than to agree that he and Oates have worked things out. "Theres no problem," Halak said. Meanwhile, about the only thing that can be said about the Blackhawks is that they actually participated in the game, and thats probably a stretch. "Well throw it in the garbage can," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "Well learn a little bit from it, but certainly were not happy about the way things played out. But it was one of those games." Quenneville, who had planned to rest some players over the final two games, gave defenceman Duncan Keith the night off and subbed goalie Corey Crawford after two periods. Still, forward Patrick Sharp was looking for a bit more effort. "Its the NHL. Were professionals," Sharp said. "We should be ready to go." Chicago had its four-game winning streak snapped. The defending Stanley Cup champions have a potential concern as they prepare for a run at another title: They have lost eight of 10 on the road, scoring only 15 goals in those games. "Its just a game we can definitely look past and move on to the next one," Crawford said. "I dont know, lets just forget about it. I dont know what else to day." NOTES: Capitals C Marcus Johansson didnt return after getting hit in the left hand with the puck in the second period. He will also miss Sundays season finale. ... Beagles two goals doubled his season output. His four goals match his career high.
