Recap


Carey Price stopped 32 shots for his second straight shutout as the visiting Montreal Canadiens spoiled Mats Sundin's tribute night with a 5-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

The Maple Leafs honored their former captain with a lengthy and moving pregame ceremony in which a banner featuring his No. 13 was raised to the rafters. Sundin, who attended with his family, gave an emotional speech in which he thanked the team, his family and Toronto fans.

The result on the ice wasn't as celebratory for the Maple Leafs, who looked overmatched en route to third straight loss.

After a scoreless first period, Montreal broke the silence with two goals in a 1:44 span. Cole opened the scoring at 5:01 with his 20th goal of the season, and Bourque extended the advantage with a one-timer of a Tomas Plekanec pass that eluded Toronto netminder James Reimer.

Max Pacioretty made it 3-0 with a power-play goal at 15:54, the first man-advantage marker the Maple Leafs have allowed in 2012. Toronto had gone a franchise-record 17 games without surrendering a power-play tally.

Lars Eller completed the second-period barrage three minutes later - ending Reimer's night in the process - while Mathieu Darche added a goal early in the third period.
