BOSTON (AP) The Montreal Canadiens are already off to a strong start. It doesn't hurt that they have star goaltender Carey Price getting some early season rust off now, too.

Price stopped 19 shots in his second start, and Brendan Gallagher and Phillip Danault each had second-period goals Saturday night to lift the Canadiens to a 4-2 win over the Boston Bruins.

Price, playing just his second game after a bout with the flu at the start of the season, missed most of last season with a right knee injury. He won his season debut, stopping 27 shots against Arizona on Thursday.
