The Montreal Canadiens recently returned from a road trip having lost three games in a row for the first time all season. They were 1-5-1 in their last seven. Maybe not time to panic, but there was certainly room for big improvements. 

So the coaching staff went to work, drew up new lines and got the squad ready for an emotional tilt against the Vancouver Canucks on a night where the club honored Jean Beliveau at the Bell Centre for the first time since his passing. 

Give credit to the Canadiens—they responded with one of their best performances of the season, a 3-1 win in a game they dominated. 

But the Habs still had trouble scoring goals, sneaking just two past Ryan Miller on 25 shots (the third was an empty-netter). And this has been a theme when they're not playing well this season: Their forwards can't score. 

The forwards aren't the only reason the Canadiens are losing games, but the Habs would surely win a few more if they start playing better.

Let's take a look at one improvement each line must make for the Montreal Canadiens.
