(AP) Seth Jones' goal with 1:27 left spoiled a 35-save performance by Montreal's Carey Price and helped the Nashville Predators beat the Canadiens 2-1 on Saturday night.
Nashville captain Shea Weber also scored for the Predators (4-3-1), who got 28 saves from Pekka Rinne.
Brendan Gallagher scored the only goal for Montreal (4-3).
It was Montreal's second game of a five-game homestand after last week's successful Western road trip. Montreal beat the Blue Jackets 5-3 at the Bell Centre last Thursday. The Canadiens had a four-game winning streak snapped.
Nashville earned seven of 10 points in five games at home before the trip to Montreal.
Weber opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 12:31 of the first period.
Gallagher made it 1-1 at 7:02 of the second.
