Capitals fall to 0-3 with loss to Canadiens

Wednesday, 08.06.2014 / 4:52 AM

The Montreal Canadiens scored four-second period goals and defeated the Washington Capitals 4-1 Thursday night at Verizon Center.

The Capitals fall to 0-3-0 under new coach Adam Oates.

After a scoreless first period, the Canadiens scored power-play goals by Tomas Plekanec and Andrei Markov, then even-strength goals by Brian Gionta and Josh Georges over the second 20 minutes.

Carey Price made 30 saves for the Canadiens, losing the shutout on a goal by Joey Crabb with 2:23 remaining.

Markov also had an assist, giving him four points in the Canadiens' first three games. Max Pacioretty and Raphael Diaz each had two assists Thursday.

Washington will look to avoid an 0-4-0 start Friday at the New Jersey Devils, where Oates was an assistant coach last season.

Montreal won its second straight after losing its opener.
