  • MONTREAL (AP) — Montreal Canadiens

    captain Shea Weber says he really missed that winning feeling.In his second game back from injury Eric Fehr Jersey Womens , Weber and Artturi Lehkonen each scored twice and the Canadiens snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.The 33-year-old defenseman missed 73 games following surgeries on his right knee and left foot. He had an assist in a losing effort in his first game back on Thursday.“The biggest thing is winning,” said Weber, who gave the Canadiens a 2-0 lead after one period. “If you help out by scoring goals, or stopping goals, whichever way it is, it’s coming in here after getting two points that I definitely miss the most.”Tomas Tatar also scored for the Canadiens, who won for the first time at home since Nov. 10. Carey Price stopped 20 shots.Jimmy Vesey and Ryan Strome scored for the Rangers, losers in four of their last five games. Backup goalie Alexandar Georgiev made 37 saves on 42 shots. Mika Zibanejad had two assists.The Canadiens outshot New York 42-22 and beat the Rangers for the fourth straight game at the Bell Centre.Montreal went up 2-0 in the first period on Weber’s first two goals of the season. He was playing just his second game since returning from an injury.Weber scored 3:53 into the game, sending a one-timer from the blue line past Georgiev. It was Weber’s first goal since Dec. 5, 2017.“The guys on the bench were all so happy when he scored his first goal,” said Canadiens head coach Claude Julien. “He’s earned that respect from his teammates, from us Greg Pateryn Jersey Womens , just by the way he handles himself. Everyone is extremely happy for him tonight. Second game, scores a couple of goals, sets the tone and has a real solid outing.”He netted his second of the game on a great play by Tatar. Lying on the ice with his back to the play after being tripped at the blue line, Tatar spotted a streaking Weber and fed him with a backhand pass for the partial break. Weber went high to the glove side and scored with eight seconds remaining in the first period.“That was a crusher,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “To give that goal up in the fashion that we did really was a tough pill to swallow and tough to overcome. You know we’re not in a great mindset right now, and to come in the second period down 2-0 playing the way we did the last seven or eight minutes and give up a goal of that fashion really set us back.”Lehkonen doubled Montreal’s lead — and his goal tally for the season — with two quick scores early in the second.The Canadiens went up 3-0 when Lehkonen beat Georgiev with a wrist shot on a 2-on-1 at 2:04. The Rangers goalie smashed his stick against the post in anger after the goal.Lehkonen made it 4-0 at 5:29, a quick release on Georgiev’s blocker side after a giveaway by Neal Pionk behind his own net.With the teams playing 4-on-4, the Rangers got one back on a wrist shot by Vesey at 8:10 of the second.Strome, on the power play, made it 4-2 with 5:49 remaining in the middle frame.Tatar, with his 11th of the season, restored Montreal’s three-goal lead with a power-play goal at 10:28 of the third.NOTES: The Canadiens placed former first-round draft pick Nikita Scherbak on waivers earlier on Saturday. … Speedy forward Paul Byron was back in the lineup for Montreal after missing 14 games with a lower-body injury.UP NEXTMontreal: Hosts the San Jose Sharks on Sunday.New York: Hosts Winnipeg on Sunday. BOSTON (AP) The Boston Bruins won Womens Luke Kunin Jersey , then got the break they needed to remain in contention for the top seed in the Eastern Conference.David Pastrnak and Tommy Wingels scored 51 seconds apart in the second period and Boston beat Ottawa 5-2 on Saturday night, a win that preserved Bruins’ chances for the No. 1 seed with an overtime loss by Tampa Bay.”It’s been a battle all year. It’s been a grind, but we’re in that position,” said Patrice Bergeron, who assisted on Pastrnak’s tying goal 8:08 into the second period.The Bruins host Florida on Sunday night in a game postponed by a winter storm Jan. 4. Boston is one point behind Tampa Bay, which lost in overtime at Carolina, for the top spot in the East and the Atlantic Division.Danton Heinen also scored for Boston, which added late goals by Noel Acciari and David Backes in the final two minutes to put away the Senators and complete the season sweep.Anton Khudobin stopped 26 shots for the Bruins.”We have a chance to move into first. That’s what we all can ask for – to have a chance,” Boston captain Zdeno Chara said. ”It’s in our hands tomorrow.”Ryan Dzingel scored both goals for Ottawa and Colin White had two assists. Daniel Taylor made 29 saves for the Senators, who finished 28-43-11 one year after reaching the Eastern Conference finals.The Senators closed out the season with back-to-back games on the road against two of the top teams in the East. After getting shut out 4-0 at Pittsburgh on Friday night, Ottawa didn’t concede anything against the Bruins.”We’ve got a lot of young guys and some big names missing. It could have been easy yesterday or today to come up with a poor effort or a lack of commitment,” Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said. ”We were making some mental mistakes and stuff but I think the effort was there from the beginning until the end.”After falling behind 1-0 on Dzingel’s goal 12:31 into the game Marcus Foligno Jersey , Boston tied it on Pastrnak’s power-play goal 8:08 into the second period. The tie lasted less than a minute before Wingels fired a wrist shot that Taylor got his glove on but couldn’t hold and the puck bounced over the goal line at 8:59 of the second.Heinen made a steal at the Boston blue line and took it the other way, beating Taylor on a wrist shot with 2:59 left in the second.Dzingel pulled Ottawa to 3-2 at 7:07 of the third with his second goal of the game, but Acciari added an insurance goal for Boston with 1:51 left and David Backes scored on an empty net with 43 seconds left to play.”I thought today we got better as the game went on and we really started playing our game, our style, our system and it showed on the scoreboard,” Bergeron said. ”We’re in a position where we can win the conference. It’s a big feat.”NOTES: Senators D Erik Karlsson missed his third straight game, remaining at home with his wife after the couple’s first son was stillborn last month. … Bruins LW Tim Schaller and RW David Pastrnak are the only Boston players to have played in the first 81 games. … Bruins LW Rick Nash missed his 11th straight game with an upper-body injury. … After entering the season on a six-game winless streak against Ottawa, Boston swept all four games.UP NEXTSenators: End of regular season.Bruins: Wrap up the regular season Sunday night at home against the Panthers.
