UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- The Montreal Canadiens had a plan upon visiting snowy Long Island. They knew the lowly New York Islanders were returning home from a disappointing five-game trip and they knew that goals would be at a premium. The Canadiens made the most of the slimmest of margins and escaped with a 1-0 victory on Saturday night. Max Pacioretty scored 1:51 into the extra period, and Carey Price stopped all 21 shots that came his way in his 21st NHL shutout. Montreal snapped a two-game skid in which the club netted only one goal and gave up a total of eight in losses to Los Angeles and Philadelphia. "We were absolutely more intense," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said. "We wanted to be physical. We wanted to play a hard-nosed game. This is something we didnt do the last two games, and guys responded well." Pacioretty took a short feed in front from David Desharnais after a New York turnover and shoved a shot past Evgeni Nabokov for his 12th goal. "I was the recipient of a great pass," Pacioretty said. "It felt great to convert it. Weve been fortunate lately, and this was another example." The 38-year-old Nabokov stopped 24 shots and was the hard-luck loser as he came back after missing 11 games because of a groin injury sustained against Detroit on Nov. 16, the last time New York won at home. "The guys did a hell of a job in the D zone, around the net," Nabokov said. It was Prices second shutout this season for the Canadiens, 10-2-1 in their last 13. "That was a really good hard-fought win," Price said. "We played a really solid game from start to finish. We knew it would be low scoring game, and were playing really well, patiently waiting for our chance. "The effort was there all night." Montreal spoiled the NHL debut of prized Islanders prospect Ryan Strome, the No. 5 pick in the 2011 NHL draft. Strome had two shots in just under 15 minutes of ice time. "I felt good out there," the 20-year-old forward said. "Glad to get my feet under me. I felt like we were working hard all game." New York (9-19-6) returned from a 1-4 trip and lost for the 12th time in 13 games (1-9-3). The Islanders are 0-16-4 when they score fewer than three goals. However, they appeared to get a jolt in the third period when Lars Eller levelled New York captain John Tavares as he carried the puck behind his net and back out the right side. Tavares didnt seem to see Eller charge at him, but he wasnt injured. "It was mostly my shoulder. I didnt think it was too bad a hit," Tavares said. Eller was given a minor penalty for illegal contact to the head, but the Islanders anemic power play did nothing with the advantage. Therrien questioned why a penalty was even called. "Of course," he said when asked if the hit was clean. "I was surprised that we were down." The teams played a fairly even first period, with Montreal holding an 11-9 edge in shots, but the Islanders came closer to breaking the scoreless deadlock. Tavares had the best chance when his shot slipped between Prices pads, slid through the crease and struck the right post with 6:45 left. The second period provided little more action than the opening frame, and the teams headed into the final period of regulation still deadlocked. Both teams received their first two power plays of the game, yet did little with them. Montreal entered with the NHLs best power play on the road, connecting 13 times in 48 advantages (27.1 per cent) in 14 games, and the top penalty-killing unit away from home, turning aside 39 of 42 short-handed situations (92.9 per cent). Danny Briere nearly got the Canadiens on the board 6:05 into the second, but he was snuffed on his jam attempts at the left post by Nabokov. The Islanders held a 7-6 shots advantage in the period, closing the overall gap to 17-6 through 40 minutes. There was playful banter within the somewhat sparse crowd of 14,408. Many fans in red Canadiens gear made themselves heard throughout the game with chants of "Lets Go Habs" that were quickly met with boos from the Islanders faithful. NOTES: The Islanders held a pregame moment of silence in memory of those killed last year in a shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. ...

He made his presence felt at first opportunity, hitting a home run to left-centre field in the first inning. The homer was Bautistas first since June 6, a span of 17 games. The slugger wasnt yet ready to resume playing defence. "I think the decision was made by Gibby to give me one or two days to kind of ease back into it," said Bautista. "Depending on how I feel tomorrow, possibly playing right field. If not, definitely in Oakland sometime." Bautistas bat is a welcome sight. However, because he couldnt play right field, manager John Gibbons was forced to send Adam Lind to the bench. The Blue Jays usually employ a first base-designated hitter combination of Lind and Edwin Encarnacion when an opponent starts a right-handed pitcher. Encarnacion started at first base on Tuesday. Basebaalls leader with 59 walks and a .dddddddddddd432 on-base percentage, Bautista did not take issue with Gibbons decision to keep him out of right field for at least one more day. "I want to play today and Im consciously not going to fight my manager because what hes doing I think is reasonable," said Bautista. "Same thing tomorrow. But if I feel well then theres no restrictions. Its not if I want to play and Im going to make it worse; I think Im old enough and disciplined enough to not risk making it worse by playing defence too soon." The Blue Jays went 3-4 in Bautistas absence from the starting lineup, including three-straight losses to the Chicago White Sox in games started by a left-handed pitcher. Toronto is scheduled to face three left-handers during its four-game set in Oakland, which starts on Thursday evening. The club could face two more southpaws next week in its three-game series in Anaheim. ' ' '
