In his first game as a Canadien, again, Mathieu did lots of things right, particularly on the power play... which was why he was brought to the team. The Habs went 3 for 4 on the power play, with Mathieu playing 2:48 of the 3:04 power play time (if I did the math right). He was on the ice for all 3 Montreal goals (and not on the ice for any of the three goals against). He assisted on the second goal. That assist was actually, oddly enough, his 200 point as a Canandien.

Here is some post-game audio from the Montreal Gazette.
