"There's some stuff we could work on, but for the first game it's pretty good".

That was Weber's 100th career power-play goal, and it is something that requires multiple viewings to fully understand what happened.

A subtle kick of a pass up to a stick without breaking stride, deflecting a puck fired at 90 miles per hour while being cross-checked in the back, plays so common we come to accept them as normal. It took a series of big saves from Carey Price to seal the win.

"We didn't play (together) a lot ... maybe more in the third", said Jonathan Drouin, who was on the nominal No. 1 line with Phil Danault and Brendan Gallagher.

Weber would then score his second power-play goal of the period with over three minutes to play.

"I've seen a lot of good bounces, but I've never seen a goal scored in that fashion, but that was a good shot", Price said.

That backing was noted by Erdogan, who recently thanked Orban for the "support" on the worldwide stage. The relationship between Europe and Turkey is love-hate, Assad said.

Los Angeles managed only one of a possible six points on their three-game swing through Eastern Canada and returns home with the worst record in the Western Conference.

Weber had a busy night.

Los Angeles made it interesting when Blake Lizotte was credited with a goal at 13:04 of the third period when the puck went in off defenceman Brett Kulak's leg during a goalmouth scramble. Jonathan Quick stopped 34 shots.

Thompson made it 2-0 15 seconds later, and Weber added his second in the period. "It was good for us in the first and it stood up". Surprisingly, Ilya Kovalchuk is pulling his weight with 9 points in 15 games, after spending too much of last season looking like he was hard-pressed to keep up with the pace of an National Hockey League opponent.

"We know we haven't been good enough here in the last little while", Weber said. "He brings experience on the ice but, off the ice, he's a leader in the room".

Montreal missed an opportunity to pad its lead when it enjoyed three other power plays in the second period, including a four-minute stretch after Kyle Clifford received a double minor for high-sticking Jeff Petry.
