Recap: NY Rangers vs. Montreal

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Carey Price made 24 saves for his third shutout of the season, and the Montreal Canadiens blanked the New York Rangers 1-0 on Thursday.

Max Pacioretty scored the lone goal with 4:17 remaining in the third period, helping the Canadiens extend their win streak to four games.

"The guys played very well, we got pretty lucky out there a few times. That's part of the game," Price said.

Henrik Lundqvist finished with 25 saves for the Rangers, who have dropped two straight following the All-Star break. They had been on a 16-3-0 tear prior to the hiatus.

New York came close to ending the deadlock, but Price made a save on Martin St. Louis, who had batted a rebound out of the air six-plus minutes into the third.

Pacioretty snapped a shot from above the right circle through the legs of Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh and past Lundqvist to give Montreal the lead.

"It's tough for any goalie to pick up a shot like that with a quick release and a little bit of a screen by myself," McDonagh said.

Pacioretty had an opportunity at a second goal with Lundqvist on the bench, but drilled the right post with a little over a minute left.

The Canadiens were then able to survive the Rangers' late flurry.

There was a long video review late in the first period after Lundqvist made a left pad save along the goal line on Dale Weise, who believed he had scored. The play was reviewed at the next stoppage, which came with 1:22 remaining, and was ruled inconclusive.

Game Notes

Price registered his 28th career shutout ... The Rangers began a four-game homestand ... Montreal was 0-for-3 on the power play, while New York went 0- for-2.
