Canadiens snap Hurricanes' streak

Updated: 

Max Pacioretty and the Montreal Canadiens ended the Carolina Hurricanes' winning streak in the NHL.

Pacioretty scored the game-winner in the third period, ending the Hurricanes' streak at five with a 2-1 victory.

Thursday's only other encounter saw the Ottawa Senators claim a 3-1 win over the Boston Bruins.

 

STREAK ENDED

Elias Lindholm had given the in-form Hurricanes a lead, but it lasted less than two minutes before Andrew Shaw scored.

Pacioretty would score what proved the decisive goal just 14 seconds into the third period.

Carey Price stopped 31 shots for the Canadiens.

 

SENATORS SURGE

The Senators also had to come from behind after David Pastrnak struck late in the first period for the Bruins.

Mark Stone tied the game in the second period before goals in the last from Chris Wideman and Kyle Turris.

Tuukka Rask made 23 saves for the Bruins.
