Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2:05 of the third period Wednesday night, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens.
The victory moved the Bruins (7-1-1) into sole possession of first place in the Northeast Division and kept Montreal (6-3-0) from taking over the division lead.
P.K. Subban scored his first of the season, on a second-period power play, for Montreal, whose five-game home winning streak ended. Boston outshot Montreal 23-22.
The Canadiens did not allow a shot on goal until more than 11 minutes into the game, but solid saves by Tuukka Rask kept it scoreless.
Subban broke the deadlock at 10:53 of the second with Milan Lucic serving a high-sticking penalty.
The flamboyant defenseman took a pass from Andrei Markov and saw his point shot go off Rich Peverley's stick and past Rask. It was Subban's first goal and third point in three games since he ended a holdout by signing a two-year contract.
