Price stops late penalty shot as Canadiens edge Devils

Carey Price denied Zach Parise on a penalty shot 1 win over the Devils.

Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges was whistled for covering the puck in the crease with 49.4 seconds remaining and Montreal holding a tenuous 2-1 lead.

Parise came up slowly on the penalty shot, and his backhand stayed on the ice, allowing Price to kick save the attempt with his left leg.

Price stood tall in the remaining time and totaled 28 saves in the win. Erik Cole scored the eventual game-winner and assisted on Max Pacioretty's second- period tally.

Nick Palmieri netted the goal for New Jersey, which got 22 saves from Martin Brodeur.
