Montreal skates past Wild, 2-1
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Francis Bouillon and Andrei Markov each scored for Montreal and the Canadiens killed off 10 Minnesota power plays to beat the Wild 2-1 on Thursday night.
Alex Tanguay assisted on both Montreal goals and Carey Price made 28 saves for the Canadiens. Before losing the night before in Dallas, Minnesota had been the last NHL team without a loss in regulation to start the 2008-09 season.
Montreal, meanwhile, improved to 7-1-1 and won its second straight.
