Chris Terry’s late one was icing on the gateau.
Third period goals by Jeff Petry and – on a power-play!! – Max Pacioretty broke open a close game.
The Canadiens’ PP was making loud sucking noises until Tomas Plekanec converted a sweet feed by Paul Byron, 12:35 into the second period for a 2-1 lead.
Byron scored his 11th, cashing the rebound of a Jeff Petry shot with a minute to play in the first period tie it up at 1-1
The Canadiens failed to control a scrambled draw five minutes into the game, and the puck popped out to Andrew Cogliano, who beat Carey Price from close-in.
Shots were 34-13 for the winning team.
