MONTREAL — Carey Price made 25 saves to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night for their third straight win.

Jonathan Drouin and Phillip Danault scored in the second period for Montreal. Price improved to 3-0-0 while allowing just two goals on 100 shots since he returned last week after missing 10 games with a lower body injury.

Mark Stone scored his 14th goal for Ottawa, which has lost seven games in a row for its longest skid since also going 0-6-1 in 2012.

The Senators have not won since sweeping a pair of games from Colorado in Stockholm, Sweden, on Nov. 10-11.

Ottawa goalie Mike Condon, pressed into service by Montreal when Price missed most of the 2015-16 season with an injury, started against his former team for the first time and finished with 28 saves.

The Senators struck short-handed when Stone intercepted Alex Galchenyuk’s pass at the right point, skated in alone and beat Price with a backhander 4:02 into the game.

Drouin tied it 2:56 into the second on a penalty shot after he was hooked from behind on a breakaway by Cody Ceci. Drouin beat Condon with a low wrist shot off a post. The last Canadiens player to score on a penalty shot was Dale Weise against Boston on Nov. 13, 2014.

Danault darted to the net to one-time Andrew Shaw’s feed past Condon at 5:14 for his first goal in 15 games.

NOTES

WILD: Left wing Zach Parise has resumed skating for the first time since surgery on his lower back five weeks ago.

Parise was on the ice before the team practiced on Wednesday. He told reporters that the microdiskectomy procedure he underwent on Oct. 24 produced immediate relief from the pain he’d been experiencing in his leg that stemmed from his back trouble. The 33-year-old Parise has not played yet this season. He’ll need several more weeks of rehabilitation before rejoining the team.

The Wild also placed defenseman Kyle Quincey on waivers. The Wild, who host the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday, have given up 13 goals over the last two games.
