Ben Scrivens made 29 saves in his seventh career shutout, Benoit Pouliot had a goal and an assist, and the Edmonton Oilers beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-0 on Monday night.

Nail Yakupov and Taylor Hall also scored for the Oilers, who have won four straight after an 0-4-1 start — the worst in franchise history.

Dustin Tokarski stopped 16 of 18 shots for the Canadiens (7-2-0), who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

Montreal came close to starting the scoring in an up-tempo first period. With 5 minutes remaining, the Canadiens had a flurry of shots before Max Pacioretty fired one into the net from the high slot. But the goal was disallowed when it was determined Brendan Gallagher interfered with Scrivens after bowling him over in the crease seconds earlier.
