Canadiens Beat Canucks 7-3, Add to Season-opening Road Run
VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Tyler Toffoli had two more goals and an assist, and the Montreal Canadiens became the first NHL team in 46 years to open a season with at least a point in five straight road games by beating the Vancouver Canucks 7-3 on Thursday night. A night after scoring a hat trick in a shootout loss to the Canucks, Toffoli helped the Canadiens improve to 3-0-2. The Los Angeles Kings also accomplished the five-game road feat to start the 1974-75 season. The Canadiens and Canucks will complete their three-game series Saturday, ending Montreal’s season-opening trip. Joel Armia had two goals and two assists, and Jake Allen made 14 saves for his 150th NHL victory.
