Bruins beat video review, Canadiens

MONTREAL — Ryan Spooner scored in overtime and his goal withstood a video review, lifting the Bruins over the Canadiens 2-1 on Monday night.

Spooner got his goal 3:20 into OT on a partial breakaway off a give-and-go with Torey Krug. Montreal unsuccessfully challenged, claiming Spooner was offside.

Austin Czarnik also scored for the Bruins, and Tuukka Rask made 30 saves as Boston handed Montreal a rare home loss.

Paul Byron scored late in the third period to salvage a point for the Canadiens. Carey Price stopped 27 shots in defeat, just his fifth loss in 21 starts.

David Krejci appeared to give the Bruins a victory 59 seconds into overtime, but officials determined David Pastrnak had interfered with Price.

PENS POUND COYOTES: Sidney Crosby left briefly after taking a stick to the face then returned and picked up his NHL-leading 21st goal as the host Penguins crushed the Coyotes 7-0. Crosby was hit while in a three-way tangle-up with Patric Hornqvist and Martin Hanzal. Bryan Rust, Scott Wilson, Trevor Daley, Phil Kessel, Nick Bonino and Justin Schultz also scored for the Penguins, who won their season-high sixth straight by throttling the struggling Coyotes. Matt Murray finished with 32 saves in his third career shutout. Over the course of the six-game streak, which includes a 4-3 rally over the Lightning on Saturday night at Amalie Arena, the Penguins have averaged 5.83 goals per game. Against Arizona, they got contributions from up and down the lineup, with 13 players registering points. The Penguins will host the Bruins on Wednesday.
