Ryan White's goal in the third period proved to be the game-winner as the Montreal Canadiens edged the New Jersey Devils, 3-2, at Bell Centre.

White's goal came with 3:52 remaining, when he redirected Jarred Tinordi's shot past Martin Brodeur.

Max Pacioretty scored twice for the Canadiens, who went 2-for-4 on the power play. Montreal goaltender Carey Price made 19 saves.

"He's a power forward. He uses his speed well to beat his opponents. When he uses his speed, he's very intimidating," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said of Pacioretty. "Since the first day of training camp, we've seen a player who's very determined, a player who's in great shape, a player who has a lot of power and energy. He came into camp with the right attitude and he makes a difference out there."

Michael Ryder and Adam Larsson scored for the Devils. Brodeur stopped 22 shots in the loss. New Jersey went 0-for-3 with the man advantage.

The Canadiens opened the scoring at 2:22 of the second period, when Pacioretty beat Brodeur glove-side on the power play.

Ryder, who signed with the Devils in July, tied the game at 4:05 with a high floater from the blue line that bounced off Price and landed in the net.

Pacioretty restored Montreal's one-goal lead at 8:32 via the power play, when he beat Brodeur with a backhand shot to make it 2-1.

Larsson tied the game 2-2 on a deflected shot from the point at 16:47 of the second.

"With the lineup we had, so many young guys, not regulars, compared to Montreal that had their full team, almost, I think we competed real well," Brodeur said. "It's not easy for some of the young guys coming in to a building like that, a full house, to handle themselves. But I thought we did a great job."

Material from wire services was used in this report.
