Canadiens shut out Flyers

MONTREAL — You could excuse goalies Sergei Bobrovsky of the Flyers and Carey Price of the Canadiens if they were a little fatigued Tuesday night.

Bobrovsky started his 11th straight game, and Price started for the 17th time in the Canadiens' 18 games.

But neither goalie played as if he were tired. Bobrovsky could be faulted for only one of the three goals against him, and Price made 41 saves — 33 in the first two periods — in getting his third shutout of the season, 3-0.

"He made some really good saves in the first period to keep us in it," Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban said of Price, "and he gave us an opportunity, and we took the lead, so we just kept on building after that, but he stood on his head."

Bobrovsky made 25 saves in the Flyers' first regulation loss since Oct. 25; they had accumulated points in 10 straight games (9-0-1). Montreal won its fourth straight in the game between division leaders that featured a lot of penalties, a lot of rough stuff and a lot of insults in an ugly final period.

The Flyers took eight of the 14 penalties called in the third, and 35 of the 60 penalty minutes between the teams.

"We wanted to come out with the same zip in the third that we did in the second, and it didn't happen," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "It was kind of frustrating at that point. Shots heavily in our favor, chances heavily in our favor … and we're down on the scoreboard, and we're fighting, and we can't seem to find a goal."

Game highlights: The host Maple Leafs scored four power-play goals in the second period, and they broke an eight-game losing streak with a 5-4 win over the Predators. The Leafs, who trailed 3-0 and 4-1, were 4-for-8 on the power play overall. Said Predators coach Barry Trotz said, "When are we going to learn? You have a team down and out, you have them on the floor gasping for air, and you let them off the mat. We stopped working, we stopped skating, and therefore you take penalties. We deserved exactly what we got in the end."

Canadiens: Top defenseman Andrei Markov has a right knee injury and a "long-term absence" is expected, the team said, without offering specifics. Markov was injured Saturday against the Hurricanes when he got tied up with Carolina's Eric Staal going after a loose puck behind the Montreal net. Last summer he had surgery on the knee after tearing the ACL in the second round of the playoffs against the Penguins.

Senators: The team will attend a memorial service this morning in Ottawa for the 14-year-old daughter of assistant coach and former player Luke Richardson, who died Saturday from injuries sustained in an attempt to hang herself. It then will take a charter flight to Raleigh, N.C., to take on the Hurricanes at 7 tonight. The NHL normally requires teams to travel to the city in which they're scheduled to play a day in advance. The Senators received permission to alter their plans. "You just look at (the Richardsons') situation, and what is traveling on a game day, what does all that mean?" defenseman Chris Phillips said. "It's about being here for the Richardsons, and the hockey stuff will take care of itself."

  1. Gators rally past Kentucky, streak hits 31


    LEXINGTON, Ky. — For the second week in a row, Florida found itself storming the field in a game that came down to the last second. A 57-yard field-goal attempt by Kentucky kicker Austin MacGinnis came just a few feet short of making history and snapping a 30-year losing streak, as the No. 20 Gators escaped a …

  2. Pen makes it way too interesting as Rays hang on for 9-6 win


    A couple of home runs provided the news pegs of the night for the Rays, but it was more topical to talk about what nearly happened as they hung on for a 9-6 win over the Orioles.

    Lucas Duda's three-run homer in the third inning was the Rays' record-breaking 217th of the season, as well as his …

  3. Marc Topkin's takeaways from Saturday's Rays-Orioles game

    The Heater

    RHP Jake Odorizzi admitted he probably should have gone on the DL sooner than late July for the back stiffness that was keeping him from throwing the ball where he wanted to. He has since found an impressive groove, with another strong outing Saturday.

  4. Matt Baker's takeaways from Florida State-N.C. State


    RB Cam Akers still looks like a former high school quarterback at times. His first two touches (30 yards) were special, but the freshman juked instead of powering ahead on his third (an unsuccessful third-and-1 rush). That's why the Seminoles are easing him in, as they did with Dalvin Cook three years ago.

    Running back Cam Akers carries for a first down during the third quarter as FSU eases the freshman into the college game.
  5. An attempt to project what Rays will look like in 2018

    The Heater

    BALTIMORE — We know what the Rays look like this year: a team that had enough talent but too many flaws, in construction and performance, and in the next few days will be officially eliminated from a wild-card race it had a chance to win but let slip away.

    Adeiny Hechavarria, high-fiving Lucas Duda, seems likely to be brought back.
