Montreal honoured 11 former captains in a pre-game ceremony to commemorate the franchise’s 110th anniversary, including Yvan Cournoyer, Chris Chelios, Guy Carbonneau and Saku Koivu.

The Canadiens seemed determined to snap the losing skid with those legends in the building with a fast and physical game right from the get-go.

Greiss turned away early chances by Gallagher and Nate Thompson before Danault scored in the last second of the opening frame.

With time ticking away as he crossed the blue line, Danault fired a shot off Mayfield, kicked the loose puck onto his stick and beat Greiss at 19:59.

Canadiens extend losing streak to eight games after early lead against Bruins

  Canadiens extend losing streak to eight games after early lead against Bruins BOSTON — The Canadiens played a near-perfect road game for 46 minutes Sunday, but learned that a good team like the Boston Bruins will take advantage of any chances you give them as Montreal fell 3-1. The Bruins scored three goals in the third period to run their winning streak to seven games while the Canadiens’ losing streak extended to eight games (0-5-3). Montreal took a lead early in the game and proceeded to do all the things they didn’t do in the first seven games of the losing streak. They forechecked. They backchecked. They didn’t allow the Bruins the odd-man rushes that have plagued the Canadiens during their losing streak.

Baggio Husidic and Giovani dos Santos scored second -half goals and the Los Angeles Galaxy snapped a six- game winless streak with a 2 -1 victory over the Columbus Crew on Saturday night.

Filip Forsberg scored 20 seconds into the game and Juuse Saros made 24 saves to help the Predators snap a six- game losing streak with a 4 - 2 win over the St. Louis Blues. Jordan Binnington made 39 saves two nights after stopping 40 shots in a 5-0 victory over Calgary. Islanders still number one.

That effort paid off when Gallagher doubled the lead at 13:30 after batting down a one-timer from Weber in the crease for the easy tap-in for his team-leading 11th of the season.

Montreal made it 3-0 at 2:12 of the third on Petry’s shot from the blue line, which deflected off forward Josh Bailey.

The Islanders remained in the game by scoring a goal just 41 seconds later. Mayfield’s one-timer came off a bouncing puck that knuckled past Price.

Barzal then cut the deficit to 3-2 with 2:29 remaining in the third by deflecting Nick Leddy’s shot from the point. However, the Canadiens held on for the win as Weber added the empty-netter with 28 seconds on the clock.

Montreal outshot New York 40-23.

Looking to create a spark, the slumping Canadiens placed backup Keith Kinkaid on waivers on Monday and recalled goaltender Cayden Primeau and winger Matthew Peca, who replaced Charles Hudon in the lineup.
