Canadiens stay perfect in regulation

MONTREAL — Carey Price made 42 saves for his first shutout of the season and the Canadiens beat the Canucks 3-0 on Wednesday night to extend their winning streak to eight games.

Nathan Beaulieu, Torrey Mitchell and Alexander Radulov, into an empty net, scored for Montreal. At 9-0-1, the Canadiens are the only undefeated team in regulation. Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher each had two assists.

Ryan Miller made 19 saves for the Canucks. They are winless in their past six games and have been outscored 21-7 over that stretch. They are 4-5-1 overall.

Montreal hardly looked like the league's best team for much of the game. The Canucks led 24-3 in shots before the Canadiens got their act together midway through the second period.

Game highlights: Jakub Voracek scored 1:41 into overtime and the host Flyers came back from 2-0 and 3-2 deficits to beat the Red Wings 4-3.
