• At a Glance: Martin Brodeur strikes again. Despite winning only one of his six starts this season, Brodeur came into Montreal and shut out the Canadiens by a score of 3-0, making 29 saves in the process.
Carey Price was far less occupied, but was beaten three times on 20 shots in a game that was less than thrilling for the fans at the Bell Centre.
Zach Parise got the evetual game winner early in the first period when his shot from an odd angle eluded Price.
The Devils also got goals from Jason Arnott in the second and Matt Taormina beat Price with a floater in the third period.
For New Jersey, it is only their second win of the season.
• Key Moments: Once again, the Canadiens fired blanks on the power play, going 0-for-3.
• What It Means: Montreal’s record falls to 3-2-1 and the loss snaps a two-game winning streak.
• What’s Next: The Canadiens are in Ottawa on Saturday for the second game against the Senators in a week, and then are back home to take on the Phoenix Coyotes on Monday.
