Jonathan Drouin did something Wednesday no member of the Montreal Canadiens had done in three years -- score on a penalty shot.

Drouin beat goalie Mike Condon at 2:56 of the second period in a 2-1 victory against the Ottawa Senators in the final game between the teams before the 2017 Scotiabank NHL100 Classic, which will be played outdoors on Dec. 16 at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa.

It was the first successful penalty shot by a Canadiens player since Dale Weise scored against the Boston Bruins on Nov. 13, 2014.

It was the first successful penalty shot in Drouin's NHL career and the eighth penalty-shot goal in 19 attempts in the League this season.

Even better news for the Canadiens: Goalie Carey Price won his third straight start since returning from a lower-body injury on Nov. 25.

He has allowed one goal or fewer in all three games. Price is 150-7-4 in 161 NHL starts when allowing one or fewer goals.
