Who Are Your 3 Stars for January?

It would seem that Montreal’s New Year’s resolution was to improve on their
dismal play in December.  As they break for the All-Star Game, it is safe
to say that, thus far, the Canadiens have held true to their vow.  The
Canadiens went 6-2-3 in January, gaining a possible 15 out of 22 points, and
only losing in regulation to the Cup-contending Pittsburgh Penguins and
Philadelphia Flyers.  Along with this .68 hockey came a revival of the
Canadiens’ powerplay, anchored competently by James Wisniewski and P.K. Subban. 
This month also saw the season debut of many a Hamilton Bulldog, as David
Desharnais, Andreas Engqvist and Ryan White all suited up for Montreal. 
Finally, January featured Desharnais’ first NHL goal, and the diminutive forward looks to be remaining in
the big league for good.
