Captain Brian Gionta scored a power-play goal to snap a tie just 29 seconds into the third period as the visiting Montreal Canadiens skated to a 3-1 triumph over the Boston Bruins on Thursday in a battle of Original Six rivals.

Defenseman P.K. Subban and Scott Gomez also tallied and Michael Cammalleri notched a pair of assists as Northeast Division-leading Montreal (10-5-1) recorded its third win in four games.

Making his 15th start in 16 games, Carey Price finished with 34 saves as the Canadiens improved to 6-2-0 away from the Bell Centre this season.

Cammalleri brilliantly fed Gionta from the behind the net and the captain quickly swatted the puck past Tuukka Rask for his third goal of the season.

Captain Zdeno Chara collected his fourth goal of the season for Boston (8-4-1), which fell for the third time in its last four contests.

Rask turned aside 38 shots to drop to 0-4-1 on the campaign.

Jeff Halpern appeared to have given Montreal a 2-1 lead with 4 1/2 minutes remaining in the second period, but officials ruled that he kicked the puck into the net and negated the tally.
