SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) Martin Jones came within 80 seconds of a shutout. Sometimes, that's the sort of stingy performance it takes to beat Canadiens goalie Carey Price.
Brent Burns and Joe Pavelski scored in the first period, Jones stopped 31 shots and the San Jose Sharks extended their mastery of Montreal at home by beating the Canadiens 2-1 on Friday night in a matchup of division leaders.
"You know you're not going to score four or five goals on him," Jones said, referring to Price. "You know you're going to have to play well. There are two teams out there. It's not just me and him. I thought we defended really well."
