Kovalchuk, Price lead Canadiens past Flyers 4-1

PHILADELPHIA (AP) A few quick strikes and a rock-solid performance between the pipes by Carey Price is exactly what the Montreal Canadiens needed to remain within shouting distance in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Ilya Kovalchuk scored twice while Price recorded 40 saves as the Montreal Canadiens avoided a season series sweep with a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.

Coming off a frustrating 4-1 loss to Chicago at home on Wednesday, the Canadiens were able strike fast at the start of the second period to help their veteran netminder.
