Suzuki scored a power-play goal on one shot and added two hits in Saturday's 2-1 overtime win over the Senators.
Suzuki gave Montreal a first-period lead when he scored his fourth power-play goal, the team's first in its last 20 opportunities. He ranks third on the Canadiens with nine power-play points. There's always the possibility that Suzuki hits a wall over the final quarter of the season, but he's rewarded head coach Claude Julien, who decided to roll with the 20-year-old forward out of training camp and has stuck with him as a top-six forward. Suzuki ranks fourth among NHL rookies with 27 points.

Suzuki scored his third power-play goal of the season and found the back of the net for just the second time in the last 21 games. There have been some rookie mistakes along the way, but head coach Claude Julien is putting up with those and giving Suzuki ample playing time. The 20-year-old forward is averaging nearly 19 minutes of ice time since the Habs returned from their holiday break, and Suzuki continues to hold down a spot on the power play.
Suzuki had an assist and two shots on net while receiving a forward-high 21:52 of ice time in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins.
