Canadiens 5, Devils 1: Montreal Routs New Jersey

Newark, NJ (Sports Network) – Lars Eller finished with a goal and an assist while Carey Price made 27 saves, as the Montreal Canadiens routed the New Jersey Nets, 5-1, at Prudential Center.

Brian Gionta, playing against his brother — Devils forward Stephen — for the first time in a professional hockey game, also scored for Montreal. Scott Gomez, Benoit Pouliot and Tom Pyatt also netted goals to help the Habs get their second win against the Devils in the last 10 matchups.

New Jersey started Johan Hedberg in net, but he was pulled after giving up two goals on three shots. With Martin Brodeur still out with a bruised elbow, Mike McKenna entered and stopped a penalty shot, but ended up allowing three goals on 29 shots.

Jason Arnott scored the lone goal for the Devils, who have dropped two of three.
