The Canadiens finish their longest road trip of the season with a 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers.
That’s four wins in five games since the amazing first-place team packed their bags to leave Montreal.
Michael Ryder got his first two goals, both on the power play, since returning to the Canadiens and added an assist.
David Desharnais, Brian Gionta and Francis Bouillon, with his first of the season, completed the scoring.
Tomas Kopecky (credited with a goal when Bouillon shot one past Peter Budaj) and Shawn Matthias made it briefly interesting for Florida, scoring in the third period to make it 4-2.
The Canadiens outshot the home team 38-16.
Tomas Plekanec had a pair of assists and P.K. Subban had three.
Andrei Markov recorded the 300th assist of his career.
