Byron scores late; Price, Canadiens beat Bruins 3-2

MONTREAL (AP) — Carey Price stopped 41 shots, Paul Byron scored with 1:02 left and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Byron poked in a loose puck after Alexander Radulov passed it into the crease. The goal stood after a video review.

Shea Weber and Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal, which got a second straight win since a 10-0 defeat in Columbus on Friday night.

Colin Miller and David Pastrnak scored for the Bruins, who still had legs in the third period despite playing a back-to-back after a 4-0 victory Monday night over Buffalo.

Rookie Zane McIntyre had 20 saves for Boston.

The Canadiens received a pep talk from visiting golf great Jack Nicklaus in their dressing room before the game. Despite the win, they were outshot for a fifth straight game, allowing 40 or more in three of them.

Boston had a 14-5 shots edge in the first period and kept up the pressure in the second, but Weber got the first goal on a power play 3:58 into the period. That started a run of three goals in a span of 70 seconds.

Andrei Markov slipped the puck to Weber on the left point for a blast inside the post for his fifth goal of the season and fourth with the man advantage.

Miller got his first of the season at 4:48 when his shot went off the end boards, off Price’s stick and in the net.

Twenty seconds later, Byron launched a counterattack and Radulov flipped a pass that Galchenyuk controlled for a backhanded goal, his fifth of the season.

Boston tied it 2-2 with 1 second left on a power play at 6:38 of the third when Pastrnak took a feed from John-Michael Liles and drilled a shot to the top corner from the left circle. It was the seventh power-play goal allowed by Montreal in its last three games.

NOTES: David Backes and Torey Krug led Boston with six shots on goal each, and Patrice Bergeron had five. Byron and Galchenyuk led Montreal with three each.
