Canadiens edge Maple Leafs for seventh straight victory

MONTREAL — Shea Weber scored a power-play goal in the third period, lifting the Canadiens over the Maple Leafs 2-1 Saturday for their seventh straight victory.

Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Montreal, which is 8-0-1 and the only club without a regulation loss this season. Nazem Kadri scored for the Leafs. Toronto outshot Montreal 38-31, but Carey Price made 37 saves for the Canadiens. Frederik Andersen had 29 stops for the Leafs.

Game highlights: Tuukka Rask made 23 saves to lead the Bruins to a 1-0 win over the host Red Wings. Tim Schaller scored for Boston, which snapped a three-game losing streak and ended Detroit's six-game winning streak. … Devan Dubnyk stopped 29 shots for his third straight shutout as the host Wild beat the Stars 4-0. … Jake Allen stopped 27 shots and Jaden Schwartz scored in the third as the host Blues beat the Kings 1-0. … Evgeni Malkin scored twice, including the tiebreaker in the third, and Sidney Crosby also had two goals in the Penguins' 5-4 win over the host Flyers. Matt Cullen also scored for the Penguins, who scored three times in 55 seconds in the first to erase a 2-0 deficit. Jakub Voracek scored twice for the Flyers. … Anders Nilsson had 33 saves and Sam Reinhart had a goal and an assist for the host Sabres in a 3-0 win over the Panthers.

Around the league: Senators goalie Craig Anderson took a personal leave from the team Thursday because his wife, Nicholle, has been diagnosed with cancer, general manager Pierre Dorion said. But after the Senators lost Andrew Hammond for at least a week with a lower-body injury sustained Friday in Calgary, Nicholle encouraged Craig to rejoin the team, and he likely will start today against the Oilers in Edmonton.

    RHP Alex Cobb hates to hear how he "battled through" or "grinded out" a start rather than just dominated, but that's kind of what he did Friday, allowing nine hits and a walk and being charged with two wild pitches but only three runs in earning his 12th win.

    TAMPA — The wait felt like forever for Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, having gone 10 months without playing in a game.

    A scramble in front of the Lightning goal has Matthew Peca, far left, and Erik Cernak, middle, helping out goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy during the third period of a 3-1 win against the Predators. Vasilevskiy, who made 29 saves, was “exceptional,” coach Jon Cooper says.
