Recap: Edmonton vs. Montreal

Edmonton, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Ben Scrivens made 29 saves en route to his first shutout of the season as the Edmonton Oilers handed the Montreal Canadiens their second loss of the young campaign in a 3-0 final on Monday.

Edmonton went winless in its first five games of the season but has since ripped off four straight victories -- all with Scrivens in net.

"I thought the guys in front of me did a great job," said Scrivens. "Lot of big blocks for us. I thought they did really well clearing pucks."

Benoit Pouliot scored his first goal as an Oiler and assisted on Nail Yakupov's tally, while Taylor Hall added a empty-netter late in regulation.

Carey Price was given the night off and his backup, Dustin Tokarski, made 16 saves for the Canadiens, who had their four-game winning streak snapped.

"If we didn't score, that means we weren't good enough," said defenseman Andrei Markov. "We have to work harder and be better tomorrow."

Montreal had an early goal waived off because Brendan Gallagher was ruled to have made contact with Scrivens, and the Oilers broke the scoreless tie in the waning seconds of the opening period.

Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov fell at the blue line trying to keep the puck in the zone, and Mark Arcobello chased down the loose disc to start a 2- on-1 with Pouliot, who received Arcobello's pass and beat Tokarski with a backhand between the pads with 18.2 seconds on the clock.

Pouliot, an offseason free agent addition, set up Edmonton's next goal with a pass through the crease that Yakupov tapped in at 6:33 of the second period.

The Canadiens peppered Scrivens with 12 shots in the third period that were all turned aside.

Game Notes

Scrivens has posted seven shutouts in his four-year career ... Montreal opponents have scored the first goal in seven of their nine games this season ... Neither team scored on the power play, as Edmonton went 0-for-6 and Montreal went 0-for-4 ... The Oilers will play the sixth game of their seven- game homestand on Wednesday against the Predators ... Montreal makes a quick trip to Calgary to play the Flames on Tuesday.

I really do try my best not to hate anyone, seeing as how that word can be thrown around rather easily, which is why it was so tough watching the Florida State-Louisville game on Thursday night.
