MONTREAL (AP) Roberto Luongo got another shutout and helped the Florida Panthers inch closer to a playoff spot.Luongo stopped 28 shots for his third shutout of the season and 76th of his career [url=http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/robert-woods-jersey]http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/robert-woods-jersey[/url] , leading the Panthers to a 2-0 victory over the injury-riddled Montreal Canadiens on Monday night.Aaron Ekblad and Aleksander Barkov scored to help Florida pull three points behind idle new Jersey for the second wild card in the Eastern Conference with two games in hand on the Devils.”As a team we have to remember to just stay in the moment,” said Luongo, whose club is 10-2-1 in its last 13 games. ”Right now we’ll enjoy tonight but we have another big game (Tuesday night at Ottawa).”Sometimes you get frustrated when you’re trying to chase teams and they seem to keep winning, so we just want to focus on our job and make sure we put our best game forward on a nightly basis and that stuff will take care of itself in the end.”Luongo tied Ed Belfour and Tony Esposito for ninth place on the NHL’s career list for shutouts.”It doesn’t mean much now,” he said. ”Our goal is to make the playoffs and get some wins down the stretch. … so 100 per cent of my focus is on that.”Antti Niemi finished with 38 saves – including two stops on Evgenii Dadonov on breakaways – for Montreal, which was shut out for the second straight game and 12th time this season – including three against the Panthers. The Canadiens were coming off a 4-0 loss at Toronto on Saturday.Missing key players including defenseman Shea Weber and forwards Max Pacioretty, Phillip Danault and Andrew Shaw, nearly half the Canadiens’ lineup was call-ups from the AHL and they at times looked overwhelmed by the Panthers.”To me it’s evident – we don’t have our team,” coach Claude Julien said. ”Right now we’re not a good team. It’s not that the players aren’t good. We have a lot of injuries and even some of the players who aren’t (inexperienced) are getting more ice time than they’re used to.”The opening 10 minutes saw two fights [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/alex-smith-jersey]Authentic Alex Smith Jersey[/url] , one of which had Ekblad sparring with Nicolas Deslauriers. It may have fired up the big defenseman because he stole a puck from Michael McCarron, deked past defenseman Jeff Petry and beat Niemi with a move to the backhand for an unassisted goal with 1:29 left in the opening period.Jacob De La Rose thought he had tied it for Montreal 17 seconds later, but a video review showed Alex Galchenyuk was offside by a toenail and it was waived off.Barkov got his 26th of the season at 6:23 of the third when his shot from the left side went in off Montreal forward Logan Shaw.”There’s a lot of confidence in this room,” said Ekblad. ”Wins never come easy, but a lot of us are feeling very confident, making smart plays and doing the right things.”Star goalie Carey Price returned to the Montreal lineup after a concussion suffered Feb. 20. He backed up Niemi, but may be ready to start when the Canadiens visit Pittsburgh on Wednesday.UP NEXT:Panthers: At Ottawa on Tuesday night as they continue a stretch of seven of eight on the road.Canadiens: At Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. BOSTON (AP) — Carey Price knew he had a lot of help in front of him and was more than willing to credit them.Price stopped 33 shots for his first shutout of the season, collecting his 290th career win with Montreal to move into second place in team history in the Canadiens’ 3-0 win over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night.“Shutouts should be a team stat, really [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/alex-smith-jersey]Alex Smith Jersey Elite[/url] ,” he said. “Everybody did an excellent job on defense tonight.”Price moved ahead of Hall of Famer Patrick Roy and is now only behind Jacques Plante — another Hall of Famer — who collected 314 victories with the Canadiens.Brendan Gallagher and Max Domi scored 1:21 apart midway into the first period and Price took over from there.“We did what we had to do in the third period to protect the lead and get the win,” said Canadiens coach Claude Julien, who coached Boston’s 2011 Stanley Cup-winning team.The Canadiens snapped a six-game losing streak against the Bruins, with the last victory coming at home on November 8, 2016. It was Price’s 41st career shutout.“It’s always nice to get that,” he said of the shutout. “A little bit of icing on the cake.”The Bruins lost for the first time at home this season after winning their first four – all in regulation. They were the last NHL team to lose at home. Tuukka Rask made 20 saves.Gallagher gave the Canadiens a 1-0 lead 9:18 into the game when he beat Rask on a tough-angle shot. The winger fired a wrister from the right circle that slipped into the net between Rask’s left arm and the post.During a delayed penalty, Domi’s hustle led to his goal that made it 2-0 at 10:39. Artturi Lehkonen was hooked breaking in alone and the puck slid behind the net where it collected it and sent it out front. Domi charged in, got the puck and shifted Rask out of position before firing it into the net under the cross bar.The game lacked any real intensity in the first meeting of the season between the longtime rivals; mainly because Montreal dominated defensively, limiting Boston’s chances with tight defense.“There’s a lot of things that we didn’t do [url=http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/alex-smith-jersey]http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline.com/alex-smith-jersey[/url] ,” Boston’s Patrice Bergeron said. “Obviously, he’s a great goalie, but I don’t think his job was very hard tonight.”The Bruins pulled Rask with just under three minutes to play for an extra skater, and even that didn’t get them any good scoring chances before Jordie Benn banked home any empty-netter with 29 seconds left.Boston’s Ryan Donato had a goal waved off early in the second period after a coach’s challenge. The play was ruled offside after a replay review.Boston’s lack of offensive punch in the opening two periods did very little to excite the sold-out crowd. Even a video showing Red Sox highlights only brought loud cheers for a few seconds.“They have a lot of smaller forwards who are able to get in on the forecheck and force teams to make plays they don’t want to,” Boston defenseman Matt Grzelcyk said. “They did that to us pretty well tonight.”Montreal’s defense did a good job of giving up most of the shots from far outside where Price was able to handle them easily. The Bruins’ best bid came in the closing seconds of second period when Price made a splendid glove save on Joakim Nordtsrom’s wrist shot.NOTES: Domi extended his point streak to six games (five goals, three assists). … Bruins D Charlie McAvoy and F David Backes each missed their fourth straight game with what the team called an upper body injury. … Price entered with a solid regular season record in his career against Boston: 24-11-5 with a 2.42 goals-against average. … It was the Bruins’ 390h straight sellout at TD Garden.UP NEXTCanadiens: Host the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.Bruins: At the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday.
