With the Canadiens holding a 3-1 lead early in the third period, Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban gained control of the puck near the Canadiens’ blueline, then fired a pass up ice to Brandon Prust. Prust skated the puck into the Blue Jackets’ zone, curled along the right boards and fired a shot towards the Columbus net.
De La Rose’s second goal was a bit less tricky as he gained control of an errant pass from Columbus defenseman James Wisniewski, then fired the puck into the vacated Blue Jackets’ net to make the 5-2 final score.

De La Rose was a second round selection for the Canadiens at the 2013 NHL Draft. After playing in the Leksands organization in Sweden the past four seasons, De La Rose moved to North America to further his career. He began the 2014-15 season with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL but received his first call-up to the Canadiens in early February.
