When a star forward on a team who is expected and was signed on for goal scoring doesn't score any certainly carries a ton of weight on his shoulders as the pressure continues to mount and that goal seems to be ever more elusive.

That's been the case for Habs forward Josh Anderson who's expected to be a key cog in the Montreal offence. Nearing the midpoint of his seven-year $38.5 million contract which carries a cap hit of 5.5 million many Habs fans thought he would be scoring in bunches, but he's been dry all season.

Tonight however, he finally lifted the weight and scored his first goal of the season against the Seattle Kraken.




As the game ended, there was a scramble around the Montreal netminder Sam Montembault where Anderson threw the puck down the ice which happened to connect with Seattle's. The crowd and his teammates were on their feet and around him congratulating him on his first.


It's exactly the kind of goal that could start a new trend for him.
