Plekanec, Canadiens clip Maple Leafs
Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Tomas Plekanec scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Montreal Canadiens held on for a 4-3 win over the scuffling Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday.
Max Pacioretty, Rene Bourque and Brian Gionta also scored for the Canadiens, who won for the fourth time in five games and remained No. 4 in the Eastern Conference.
Carey Price made 33 saves for Montreal and James Reimer made 32 for the Maple Leafs.
Toronto -- clinging to a playoff position -- is 0-4 with Reimer in net since starting goalie Jonathan Bernier went down with a groin injury on March 13 in Los Angeles.
Some good news for the Maple Leafs? Center Dave Bolland played his first game since suffering a severed tendon in his ankle during a game on Nov. 2.
Bolland had one shot in nine minutes and Joffrey Lupul, Tyler Bozak and Nazem Kadri scored Toronto's goals.
