MONTREAL - Jonathan Drouin and Phillip Danault scored in the second period and Carey Price made 25 saves to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday for a third straight win.

Price is 3-0-0 and has allowed only two goals on 100 shots since he returned last week after missing 10 games with a lower body injury. Montreal improved to 11-12-3.

Mark Stone scored his 14th goal for Ottawa (8-9-6), which has lost seven games in a row, it's longest drought since it went 0-6-1 in 2012.

The Senators have not won since sweeping a pair of games from Colorado in Stockholm, Sweden, Nov. 10-11. Defenceman Erik Karlsson went without a point for a seventh game in a row.

Canadiens' on-ice woes translate into cheap tickets

  Canadiens' on-ice woes translate into cheap tickets Although the Montreal Canadiens haven't won the Stanley Cup since 1993, the team has always been able to count on its fans showing up for every game. On paper at least, the team enjoys a sellout streak at home that has lasted since Jan. 8, 2004 — minus one game where a seat was symbolically left empty to honour the late Jean Beliveau.But as large blocks of seats at the Bell Centre appear to sit empty and resellers offer tickets at less than face value, some people are wondering whether even die-hard Montreal fans are beginning to turn away from the franchise.

MONTREAL — However poorly Carey Price played early in the season, he is making up for it now. Price made 27 saves for his third win in as many starts since he missed 10 games with a lower body injury as the Montreal Canadiens downed the slumping Ottawa Senators 2 - 1 on Wednesday night.

Ottawa goalie Mike Condon, pressed into service by Montreal when Price missed most of the 2015-16 season with an injury, started against the Canadiens for the first time and faced 30 shots.

The Senators struck shorthanded when Stone intercepted an Alex Galchenyuk pass at the right point, skated in alone and beat Carey Price with a backhander 4:02 into the game.

Drouin tied it 2:56 into the second frame on a penalty shot after he was hooked from behind on a breakaway by Cody Ceci. Drouin beat Condon with a low wrist shot off a post. The last Canadien to score on a penalty shot was Dale Weise against Boston on Nov. 13, 2014.

Danault darted to the net to one-time Andrew Shaw's feed past Condon at 5:14 for his first goal in 15 games.

Canadiens defenceman Shea Weber missed a fifth straight game with a lower-body injury.

MONTREAL — The snowball continues to grow, rolling on and on downhill. After yet another demoralizing defeat, this time 2 - 1 to Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre Wednesday to kick off a seven-game road trip, the Ottawa Senators losing streak has hit the not so lucky seven mark.

The Canadiens paid tribute to Mark Recchi in a pre-game ceremony for his induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame. His name and number were added to the ring of honour at the Bell Centre. Video tributes were read on the scoreboard from former teammates Saku Koivu and Vincent Damphousse. Recchi scored 120 goals in 346 games in five seasons as a Canadien in the 1990s. His picture will go up in the dressing room with the team's 47 other Hall of Famers.
