Jarome Iginla wasted little time showing why the Boston Bruins wanted him.

Iginla scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, as the Bruins opened their preseason by beating the Montreal Canadiens 6-3 on Monday night.

The longtime Calgary Flames captain signed with the Bruins as a free agent this summer after opting for a trade to the Pittsburgh Penguins rather than Boston as the trade deadline approached in April. He opened the scoring with a power-play one-timer past Carey Price 8:29 into the game, then broke a 3-3 tie when he beat Price's replacement, Robert Mayer, from the slot at 9:33 of the third.

The line of Iginla, Milan Lucic and David Krejci made life miserable for the Canadiens all night, combining for three goals and six points.

"This was my first chance to play with [Lucic and Krejci] and see them up close," Iginla said. "I see how strong they are ... I can see why they have a lot of success. I had some fun out there.

Krejci and Zach Trotman added power-play goals for Boston, which went 4-for-6 with the extra man. Nick Johnson also had a pair of goals for the defending Eastern Conference champions, who outshot Montreal 40-20. Travis Moen, Max Pacioretty and P.K. Subban scored for Montreal -- all against starting goaltender Chad Johnson. Rookie Malcolm Subban, P.K.'s 19-year-old brother and Boston's first-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, played the final 30:49 and stopped all 12 shots he faced.
