MONTREAL — Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller scored shootout goals, and the Canadiens won their fourth straight by beating the Senators, 4-3, on Wednesday night.
Eller also scored in the first period, and Brendan Gallagher and P.K. Subban added power-play goals in the second for Montreal (18-5-4), which played loosely in its first home game after a five-game trip. Carey Price made 29 saves.
Mika Zibanejad and Daniel Alfredsson had power-play goals for Ottawa (13-8-6), and Patrick Wiercioch also scored for the Senators, who are 1-2-4 in their last seven.
Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner was sharp in the third period, when Montreal had three power plays and stretched its shots advantage to 45-32.
Devils 5, Flyers 2 — In Newark, N.J., Ilya Kovalchuk capped New Jersey's three-goal first period with his NHL-leading fourth short-handed goal, and the Devils beat the Flyers.
Patrik Elias and Adam Henrique, who scored twice, also tallied in the opening period as the Devils beat the Flyers for the third time in three games this season. Andrei Loktionov had the prettiest goal for New Jersey, with a toe-drag move that left Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov at his mercy.
Flames 5, Red Wings 2 — In Calgary, Alberta, Miikka Kiprusoff's 36 saves and three third-period goals were enough to lift the Flames.
Lee Stempniak, Curtis Glencross and Blake Comeau scored in the final frame.
