TORONTO (AP) -- The Toronto Maple Leafs scored four goals on their first five shots, chased Montreal goalie Carey Price midway through the first period and beat the Canadiens 5-1 Saturday night.
Tyler Bozak, Leo Komarov, Jay McClement, Dion Phaneuf and Phil Kessel scored for Toronto, which has earned at least one point in 12 of its last 13 games (8-1-4). James Reimer stopped 36 shots for the Leafs.
Price gave up three goals on four shots and was pulled after just 10 minutes, 25 seconds. Peter Budaj didn't fare much better, giving up a goal on the first shot he faced before finishing with 22 saves.
Davis Drewiske scored for Montreal, which remained one point ahead of Boston for the Northeast Division lead and the second seed in the Eastern Conference.
