Associated Press  |  Last updated November 16, 2011
Carey Price made 25 saves for his first shutout of the season and P.K. Subban had a goal and an assist to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-0 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday night. Price, who earned a secondary assist on Michael Cammalleri's goal 7:15 in, recorded his first regular-season shutout since March 12. It was his 13th NHL blanking. Yannick Weber and Travis Moen also scored for Montreal (8-7-3), and Tomas Plekanec had two assists. The Canadiens are 7-2-1 in their past 10 games. Cam Ward stopped 32 shots for Carolina, which lost 5-3 to Philadelphia on Monday. The Hurricanes are 3-8-2 in their last 13 games. Frederic St. Denis made his NHL debut for the Canadiens, who had three rookie defenseman in the lineup. With Hal Gill sidelined by illness for a second straight game, and Jaroslav Spacek out because of an injury sustained Monday in the Canadiens' shootout loss to Buffalo, Josh Gorges was the only one of Montreal's six defensemen who has played more than 100 NHL games. Cammalleri, who missed Monday's game because of an undisclosed lower body injury, opened the scoring with his fourth goal. Plekanec drew his second straight assist with a pass to former Carolina forward Erik Cole to begin the play that led to Weber's power-play goal that made it 2-0 at 15:16. Cole, who left the Hurricanes to sign a four-year, $18 million contract with Montreal in July, fed the puck through a seam to Weber. He beat Ward with a shot from the left side. Subban increased the lead to 3-0 when he scored from the slot for his first goal of the season. Subban celebrated by skating to the left corner and jumping up against the glass with his hip. Moen made it 4-0 with 38.2 seconds left in the second period. He scored from behind the net, banking a backhanded shot from the end boards in off the bottom of Ward's pads. NOTES: Hurricanes D Joni Pitkanen missed his third straight game because of an undisclosed lower body injury. ... St. Denis was recalled from Hamilton of the AHL on Tuesday. Raphael Diaz and Alexei Emelin were the other rookie defensemen in the Canadiens' lineup. ... Gorges has played 382 NHL regular-season games with Montreal and San Jose. Subban has played 97 games and Weber has been in 67, all with the Canadiens. ... Price recorded his third playoff shutout in Montreal's 2-0 win over Boston on April 14 in the opening game of the Canadiens' first-round loss to the Bruins.
