WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Carey Price made 36 saves and the Montreal Canadiens extended their winning streak to three games with a 3-0 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday.
It was Price's first shutout of the season and 20th of his career. Ondrej Pavelec faced 24 shots for the Jets (3-4-0).
Brandon Prust, P.K. Subban and Daniel Briere, with an empty netter on the power play, scored for Montreal (4-2-0), which ended a four-game road trip and returns home for five straight.
It was the third of a six-game homestand for the Jets, the longest of their season. They host St. Louis on Friday.
With a number of fans wearing Habs jerseys in the stands at MTS Centre, the visitors quickly opened the scoring.
Briere's shot off the boards led to Prust's goal, as the puck bounced to him at the corner of the net and he poked it in behind Pavelec to make it 1-0 at 2:06 of the first.
