Carey Price made 37 saves as the Montreal Canadiens defeated the visiting Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1 on Monday.

Coming off a dominant 3-0 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday, the Canadiens picked up where they left off.

Montreal scored on its first two shots on Bobrovsky, the league leader in save percentage and goals-against average.

Gallagher, after capitalizing on a giveaway by Cam Atkinson, got the first at 3:11 with a sharp-angle shot that beat Bobrovsky five-hole for his team-leading 10th goal of year and his 200th career point.

Gallagher had 10 goals in 64 games last season.

Drouin doubled Montreal’s lead with a power-play goal at 8:10 of the first. Using Shaw as a screen, Drouin roofed the puck on Bobrovsky with a slapshot from the face-off dot for his first goal since Nov. 5, ending an eight-game goalless drought.

Shaw added the empty-netter with 1:24 remaining in the game.

Columbus outshot Montreal 18-7 in the second period and Dubois finally found the back of the net for the visitors at 16:08. Dubois crashed the net and poked a loose puck past price. Coach Claude Julien challenged the play for goaltender interference but the goal stood.
