Video: David Savard Scores First Goal With Canadiens

In his 32nd game of the regular season, defenseman David Savard finally scored his first goal as a member of the Montreal Canadiens. It was a nice one, too, as he intercepted a breakout pass and then sniped it past Maxime Lagace.

Now, Savard wasn't signed by the Canadiens with the expectation of being a scoring machine. In fact, over his two previous seasons, he only scored one goal in 122 games. However, after a goal like this one, it wouldn't be too surprising to see him score a little more frequently from here. 

In 32 games this season, he now has a goal to go along with eight total points. Although he does sport a minus-8, that stat is due to the fact that the Canadiens have struggled immensely as a collective unit. Yet, they did play well last night against the Tampa Bay Lightning even with them falling in overtime. They definitely deserve some credit for that.

Nevertheless, that wasn't a bad first goal in a Canadiens sweater for Savard at all. Here's to hoping there are many more to come!
