MONTREAL — Linemates Tyler Seguin and David Krejci scored in the opening 2:05 of the third period, lifting the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

The victory moved the Bruins (7-1-1) into sole possession of first place in the Northeast Division and kept Montreal (6-3-0) from taking over the division lead.

P.K. Subban scored his first of the season on a second-period power play for Montreal, whose five-game home winning streak ended. Boston outshot Montreal, 23-22.

The Canadiens did not allow a shot on goal until more than 11 minutes into the game, but solid saves by Tuukka Rask kept it scoreless.

Subban broke the deadlock at 10:53 of the second.

The flamboyant defenseman took a pass from Andrei Markov and saw his point shot go off Rich Peverley's stick and past Rask. It was Subban's first goal and third point in three games since he ended a holdout.

Seguin tied it 14 seconds into the third period as he lifted the puck past Carey Price from the edge of the crease after a feed from Krejci.

The Bruins then went on a rush and Lucic passed in front where the closing Krejci beat Tomas Plekanec to the puck to redirect it into the net at 2:05.

Ducks 3, Avalanche 0 — In Denver, Viktor Fasth stopped 31 shots for his first NHL shutout, and Francois Beauchemin scored in his 500th career game for Anaheim.

Sheldon Souray and Saku Koivu each added a goal and an assist for the Ducks, who won their fourth straight game.

Stars 3, Oilers 2 (OT) — In Edmonton, Jaromir Jagr scored in overtime, lifting Dallas past the injury-riddled Edmonton for its first winning streak of the season.

Jagr beat Oilers goalie Devan Dubnyk 1:46 into the extra period with a high wrist shot for his third goal of the season.
