First in the East!!!!

The Montreal Canadiens, who were projected to come anywhere between 9th and 13th place, have risen to first in the eastern conference. It is the first time they've held op spot in the East after the all-star break since 1993. Coincidence!?

The Canadiens beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on saturday claiming sole possession of first place in the East.

Mark Streit scored on the power play, 6 minutes into the second period, to give the habs a 1-0 lead. It was his second consecutive game with a goal.

Brian Gionta tied the game up for New Jersey, nearly 14 minutes into the second period, ending they're 131 minute goalless drought.

Andrei Kostitsyn scored the game winner on a power play goal, with 6 minutes left in the game.

Carey Price played a solid game, stopping 31 shots, including some very key saves on a Devils power play with 5 minutes left in the game.
