Cousins scored two goals in Montreal's 5-4 shootout win over Vegas on Saturday.
The 26-year-old has points in back-to-back games (two goals, one assist). It's a nice performance, but Cousins doesn't deliver enough to make him fantasy worthy.
Cousins has been fined for an incident that occurred during Tuesday's loss to the Red Wings, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.
The NHL fined Cousins $2,688.17, the maximum allowable under the CBA, for boarding Detroit's Mike Green. Cousins received a minor penalty for cross-checking when he hit Green from behind, sending the Red Wings defenseman hard into the boards. Cousins has a total of 10 minutes in penalties over 38 games.
Cousins had an assist, five shots, one hit and one blocked shot over 17:32 of ice time in Thursday's 2-1 loss to Tampa Bay.
Cousins assisted on Montreal's lone goal, which barely missed being a power-play score. He was given the first crack at replacing Brendan Gallagher (concussion) on the Canadiens' top line. Gallagher became the fifth forward to land on injured reserve, so Cousins should see a spike in ice time until the Habs hit their bye week beginning Jan. 19. Over the last two games, he's averaged 17:37, including 2:38 on the power play.
