Bruins edge Habs
MONTREAL (AP) -- Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2:05 of the third period, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.
The victory moved the Bruins (7-1-1) into sole possession of first place in the Northeast Division and kept Montreal (6-3-0) from taking over the division lead.
P.K. Subban scored his first of the season on a second period power play for Montreal, whose five-game home winning streak ended. Boston outshot Montreal 23-22.
The Canadiens did not allow a shot on goal until more than 11 minutes into the game, but solid saves by Tuukka Rask kept it scoreless.
Subban broke the deadlock at 10:53 of the second with Milan Lucic serving a high-sticking penalty.
The flamboyant defenseman took a pass from Andrei Markov and saw his point shot go off Rich Peverley's stick and past Rask.
