UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Carey Price made 37 saves, and Andrei Markov and Brendan Gallagher scored second-period goals as the Montreal Canadiens cooled off the New York Islanders with a 3-1 victory Tuesday night.

Markov, in his 800th NHL game, and Gallagher beat backup goalie Chad Johnson 5:17 apart to erase a 1-0 deficit. Montreal has won five of six, with Price allowing two goals or fewer in each game during that span.

David Desharnais scored with 1:11 left to make it 3-1 for the Canadiens, who mustered only 21 shots.

Kyle Okposo scored in the first period for the Islanders. Johnson made 18 saves as No. 1 goalie Jaroslav Halak took a maintenance day and didn't dress for the game. New York, which had won four straight overall, fell to 13-4 at home and 10-2 in its last 12 at Nassau Coliseum.
