Desharnais has goal, assist in Canadiens' 3-1 victory over Sabres

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Alex Galchenyuk and David Desharnais scored, Carey Price made 24 saves and the Montreal Canadiens extended their winning streak to four games with a 3-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday.

Andrei Markov had three assists and Montreal's NHL-best road power play scored twice in four chances.

Matt Moulson scored for Buffalo as the Sabres lost their fifth consecutive game in regulation.

Ryan Miller made 28 saves in the loss.

Montreal scored first at 17:21 of the first when Lars Eller slid a drop pass to Markov, who caught Miller out of the net. Markov's shot deflected off Galchenyuk and into the goal.

It marked Markov's fourth straight game with a point.

Quote of the Day

You get the right the whistles at the right times, you can leave him out there. He's a beast when it comes to being on the ice. I thought [Saturday] he was a big man. That first period, he did that lateral cut and it was like three bowling pins bounced off him. There's not too many guys that can do that.

— Capitals coach Barry Trotz on Alex Ovechkin, who enters February tied for the NHL lead in goals
