NHL.com @NHL

MONTREAL - Tyler Seguin and Chris Clark each scored in the third period to lead the Boston Bruins to a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens in pre-season action Monday.

Tuukka Rask made 30 saves for the win, improving to 1-0-1 in exhibition play.

Price made 30 saves in his strongest performance of the pre-season.

Michael Cammalleri scored the lone goal for Montreal, his third of the pre-season at 15:33 of the second period.

Winger Philip DeSimone, at camp on an amateur tryout, got the play started coming up the right wing before letting a shot go. Rask made the initial save, but the rebound bounced out to Cammalleri who was waiting out in the slot.

He now leads all Canadiens with three goals in exhibition play.

Seguin evened up the score on the power play early in the third. Defenceman Matt Bartkowski's shot got lost in the crowd before the puck found its way to Seguin, who had a wide-open net to Price's right.

Clark, on a tryout with the Bruins, put the visitors ahead just after a Boston power play, finishing off a passing play with Steve Kampfer to Maxime Sauve.

The win improved the Bruins' pre-season record at 3-0-1. The Canadiens meanwhile, finishing off a stretch of six games in seven nights, fell to 1-5-0 with the loss.
