Canadiens Dump Detroit
Carey Price made 20 saves and became the winningest goaltender in Canadiens history as Montreal defeated the Detroit Red Wings 3-1 on Tuesday night.
Price set a new Habs record with 315 victories, surpassing legendary Jacques Plante's 314-win record established in 1963.
Max Domi scored twice and Brett Kulak added a goal as the Canadiens (37-26-7) snapped a two-game losing skid.
Tomas Tatar, who played for the Wings from 2010 to 2018, had two assists against his former team.
Andreas Athanasiou scored in the third period for the Red Wings (24-36-10), who have lost three NHL games in a row. The Wings have won just once in their past 12 games.
The Canadiens have defeated Detroit in nine straight contests.
The Red Wings host the NHL's top team, the Lightning Thursday night at Little Caesars Arena.
