MONTREAL (AP) - Michael Ryder's power-play goal 57 seconds into the second period lifted the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Saturday night in a matchup of the top two teams in the Northeast Division.

Alex Galchenyuk also scored and Carey Price made 26 saves for the Canadiens (25-8-5), who won three of four against the Bruins this season. The Canadiens lead the division by three points, with Boston holding a game in hand.

Daniel Paille scored for Boston (24-9-4), which had a three-game winning streak snapped.

The Canadiens were down one defenseman from the midway point of the first period when Alexei Emelin appeared to sustain a left knee injury in a thunderous collision while taking a run at big Bruins forward Milan Lucic.
