ANAHEIM – Six Nations’ Brandon Montour recorded his second goal of the season plus an assist in the Anaheim Ducks’ 6-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens, Friday night at the Duck Pond.

Montreal (1-6-1) set a Canadiens record with 30 shots on goal in the second period alone, but lost its seventh consecutive game to tie its worst eight-game start since 1941. The record for shots in a period was 27, most recently matched in the first against the Ottawa Senators on Dec. 12, 2015.

Obviously, Gibson was sensational, especially in the second when Montreal threw everything they had at him, scoring two goals on 30 second period shot.

“That was the best start we’ve had this year,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said after the game. “We’re going to have to start more games like that. I’m not suspecting we’re scoring three goals in the first period every time, but we have to show that energy, that spark and that grittiness to go out and compete.”

Montour, Grant, and Wagner scored 97 seconds apart in the third period for a 6-2 lead.

Montour drew a penalty, but before the Ducks went on the power play, Kevin Bieksa took a slap shot from the point but broke his stick. The puck skittered to Montour in the left faceoff circle where Montour let loose a bad-angle one-timer that beat Price just under the crossbar on the short side for a 4-2 lead.

Montour posted the first first multi-pointer of his NHL career picking up an assist as well.

He will have plenty of chances to add to that this week as the Ducks have four games in six days, starting with Tuesday night in Philadelphia, Thursday, Oct. 26 in Florida with the Panthers, Saturday night in Tampa, and Sunday in Carolina.

Cam Fowler went down with an injury, which may produce more ice time for Montour until he gets back in the lineup.
