First in the East... again

The Montreal Canadiens have once again moved into first place in the Eastern Conference after a 4-2 win versus the Phoenix Coyotes.

Andrei Markov scored the game winning goal, on the power play, 10 minutes into the third period. Alex Kovalev had 3 assists, and Carey Price made 37 saves, for his 3rd win in 4 games. Tomas Plekanec, Saku Koivu, and Sergei Kostitsyn also scored for the Habs.

Shane Doan scored on his cousin, Carey Price, 10 minutes into the second period, and Zbynek Michalek also scored or the Coyotes.

Alex Kovalev recorded his 500th career assist during the game, and Andrei Markov also recorded his 200th career assist.

With both Ottawa and Pittsburgh losing tonight, the Habs moved into first place in the East, tied with Pittsburgh with a game in hand. The win tonight also ties the Canadiens with Ottawa in the wins category.
