Just five days after teammate Christian Thomas potted his first NHL goal, Montreal Canadiens defenseman Nathan Beaulieu netted his first in a 4-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

With the Senators leading 3-1 in the third period and the Canadiens working in the Ottawa zone, Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban worked the puck along the left side boards. Subban then dropped a pass back to the left point to Beaulieu, who then lofted a shot towards the Senators’ goal.

The Canadiens first round pick at the 2011 NHL Draft, Beaulieu is in his second season of pro hockey. He has spent all of the 2014-15 season with Montreal, scoring a goal and adding five assists in 42 games.
