Antti Niemi made 22 saves and Logan Couture scored twice in the San Jose Sharks' 2-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.
San Jose won for the first time in four attempts at the Bell Centre since Dec. 2002.
Carey Price made 35 saves for Montreal.
After a scoreless first period in which San Jose outshot Montreal 11-8, Couture scored a power-play goal at 6:20 of the second period.
With Montreal fans calling for a tripping penalty on Couture, captain Joe Thornton sent a precise pass onto Couture's stick. The 24-year-old made no mistake from close range for his fifth goal of the year.
Thornton, who is second in assists among active players behind Jaromir Jagr, needs two more assists to reach 800 in his career.
The Habs' lack of discipline almost cost them again minutes after the goal when Couture rifled a shot past Price that hit the post.
Niemi made 15 saves after two periods en route to the shutout, his second of the season, and a league-leading ninth win.
