Canadiens edge Senators to extend home winning streak

(Reuters) - Carey Price made 32 saves as the Montreal Canadiens avenged Wednesday’s loss to the Ottawa Senators with a 2-1 victory on Sunday to extend their home winning streak to five games.

The Canadiens, who lost 5-1 at Ottawa in their previous meeting, reversed their fortunes on home ice to move within one point of the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Bruins.

Despite falling behind 1-0 after Jakob Silfverberg’s power-play goal just 1:38 into the game, Montreal’s David Desharnais and Erik Cole responded with first-period goals.

Max Pacioretty gave Montreal (6-2-0) a boost by returning to the lineup eight days after having his appendectomy removed and assisting on the team’s equalizing goal.

P.K. Subban, playing in his second game since he ended a contract holdout, assisted on Montreal’s winning goal.
