MONTREAL - Jarome Iginla's second goal of the game broke a tie and led the Boston Bruins to a 6-3 win over Montreal that gave goalie Malcolm Subban the win over his brother P.K. in NHL pre-season action Monday night.

Nick Johnson, with two, David Krejci and Zach Trotman also scored for Boston, while Travis Moen and Max Pacioretty scored for Montreal. P.K. Subban also scored, but it was against Bruins' starter Chad Johnson.

Malcolm Subban went in midway through the second frame and stopped all 12 shots he faced. It was the first NHL meeting between Norris Trophy winner P.K. and his 19-year-old brother, a Bruins prospect.

He wasn't tested much as Boston outshot Montreal 40-20 overall.

Iginla showed he still has the hot one-timer as he blasted a Milan Lucic pass behind Carey Price on a power play 8:29 into the game.

The Canadiens didn't get a shot on Chad Johnson until after the 12-minute mark, but when they did, it went it. Francis Bouillon picked up Louis Lelanc's rebound and banked it in off Moen's skate at 12:07.

Johnson fooled Price with a wrist shot on a power play at 14:20.

P.K. Subban beat Johnson during a 5-on-3 advantage 1:15 into the second, but Johnson got his second on a breakaway at 6:53 before Pacioretty completed a tie-tac-toe play at 9:09.

That's when Johnson, who allowed three goals on eight shots, was yanked for Malcolm Subban, which the Bell Centre crowd greeted with a mix of cheers and boos.

Iginla beat Robert Mayer from the slot at 9:33 of the third and Krejci and Trotman added power-play goals as Boston went 4 for 6 with the advantage. Lucic and Torey Krug each had three assists.

Price allowed three goals on 22 shots.
