Canadiens top Islanders

Uniondale, NY ( – After a slow start, the Montreal Canadiens
scored three unanswered goals to top the New York Islanders, 3-1, on Tuesday.

Carey Price made 37 saves for the Canadiens, who have won five of their last
six games.

Montreal got second-period goals from Andrei Markov and Brendan Gallagher, and
David Desharnais added an insurance marker late in the third period to seal
the win.

Kyle Okposo scored for the Islanders eight minutes into the game, but they
wouldn’t light the lamp again as they lost their four-game winning streak.

Chad Johnson got the start in net for New York and made 18 saves on 21 shots.
