Gionta lifts Canadiens to 2-1 win over Panthers

Posted: Updated:

MONTREAL (AP) - Brian Gionta scored the winner in the second period and Carey Price stopped 26 shots to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Monday night.

David Desharnais also had a goal for Montreal (25-14-5).

Sean Bergenheim scored for the Panthers (16-21-6) and Tim Thomas made 33 saves.

Gionta scored at 15:46 of the second. Panthers captain Ed Jovanovski gave the puck away softly behind the Florida net to Tomas Plekanec, who fed a wide-open Gionta for his seventh goal of the year.

The win was Montreal's first against Florida this season. The Panthers beat the Habs twice last month.
