Against all odds, the Canadiens won by a score of 2-1 in Colorado on Tuesday night. Captain Nick Suzuki opened the scoring for the visitors, but a modification was made in favor of Juraj Slafkovsky.

Indeed, in the early moments of the game, the score was already 1-1 thanks to the captain's goal. David Savard was the only one credited with an assist on the play, but the NHL reversed its decision.

Juraj Slafkovsky was also credited with an assist, marking his 40th point of the season. He thus becomes the most productive 19-year-old player in Canadiens history, surpassing Mario Tremblay.

"They added the assist to Juraj Slafkovsky on the Suzuki goal. That's an eight game point streak for the 19-year-old, 40 points on the season and 32 points in his last 40 games." - Arpon Basu



His progression is simply fantastic. It's great to see him evolve and take on more responsibility. Meanwhile, Nick Suzuki reached his 67th point, his highest total in his career.

Two very impressive milestones were thus reached by two members of the Canadiens' future. We can really look forward to what lies ahead.
