Eller's career night propels Habs past Jets

Lars Eller doubled his goal total for the goal game in 3 win over the Winnipeg Jets at the Bell Centre.

Eller, who was also charitable, picking up one assist, had four goals in his first 36 games this season. He capped off his performance Wednesday with a dazzling, spin-o-rama penalty-shot goal.

Michael Cammalleri, Josh Gorges and Tomas Kaberle also scored for Montreal, which earned just its second win in its last nine games.

Travis Moen set up three of the Canadiens' goals, while Carey Price turned away 24 Winnipeg shots.

Blake Wheeler had a goal and an assist for the Jets, who were looking to match a season high with a fourth consecutive win.

Ondrej Pavelec surrendered six Montreal goals on 24 shots before he was replaced by Chris Mason, who made six saves in relief.
