MONTREAL (AP) -- Jeff Skinner scored the winner and Anton Khudobin made 41 saves to lead the Carolina Hurricanes to a 3-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Drayson Bowman and Nathan Gerbe added goals for Carolina (1-3-0).

Rookie Michael Bournival scored for Montreal (1-2-1) and Carey Price stopped 24 shots.

This was Montreal's second game in two nights against the Hurricanes. The Canadiens beat Carolina 6-0 in a lopsided match in Quebec City on Friday.

Montreal found few answers to Khudobin, who played 14 games with Boston last year and is slated to become the Hurricanes' backup goalie this year.
