Lars Ellers first career two-goal game in Montreals 4-1 win

Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - Lars Ellers first career two-goal game in Montreals 4-1 win over Boston was overshadowed by a harsh collision between Bruin defender Zdeno Chara and Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty. With just 16 seconds left in the second period, Pacioretty was charging down the left side boards near the benches. Chara went to pinch Pacioretty off and hit him into a dangerous spot where glass divides the two benches. His head hit the glass before he tumbled straight to the ice. He laid motionless, face first, for several minutes as the medical staff attended to him. Finally, they were able to get him onto a stretcher and off the ice. Fortunately, the Canadiens reported he was conscious and had motion in his extremities as he was taken to a local hospital for further examination. We were really focused on what happened to Pacioretty, Eller said. Lets hope hes OK and that nothing too serious happened to him. Its tough seeing a guy lay on the ice that long. Meanwhile, the Canadiens held onto the lead through a relatively quiet third period and pulled within three points of division-leading Boston. James Wisniewski and Brian Gionta also had goals while Carey Price made 30 saves in the hosts fifth straight win. Milan Lucic scored the lone goal for Boston, which has lost two straight on the heels of a season-high seven-game winning streak. Tuukka Rask surrendered all four goals on 26 shots. The Canadiens got the all-important first goal nearing the mid-point of the first period. Less than a minute after killing a power play, the Bruins defense wavered slightly to create Travis Moens shot from the point, which was blocked by traffic in front of the net. However, Eller backhanded the loose disc past an unsuspecting Rask from the slot. Montreal went up 2-0 with 2:23 left in the first as Eller and Moen struck again. Moen kept the play alive in the offensive zone and slipped the puck past the defense to Eller at the right door step. From there, the Danish center used a flick of the wrist to beat the Boston goaltender for his seventh tally of the season. They came out strong, Rask said. It put us behind the eight ball right away in this building where its always tough. A power-play goal gave the Habs three-goal lead at the 7:15 mark of the second period. Gionta charged into the zone, collecting a pass from Scott Gomez. He then rifled a shot from the right circle on Rask and the puck trickled between the arm and body of the netminder. The disc kept rolling toward the goal line and several scrambling Boston defenders were a split-second late and could not prevent it from sliding past the goal line. Montreal found the back of the net for the final time late in the middle session. Following an offensive zone faceoff win. Michael Cammalleri shoveled the puck away from the action to Wisniewski. That created a wide open shot for the defenseman, who stepped inside the left circle and ripped a power play shot past Rask. The two teams were sent to the locker room after the hit on Pacioretty and the remaining time was added on to the third period. Lucic scored with just under 6 1/2 minutes left to avoid the shutout. GAME NOTES:Chara was given an interference major and a game misconduct following the hit on Pacioretty. The two players have history, as Pacioretty scored the game- winning goal against the Bruins on January 8.

Most importantly, they feel as though they are starting to string some good games together.CLEVELAND -- The Indians playoff push hit a snag in Sundays 2-1 loss to the New York Mets. Cleveland managed only five hits -- all singles -- and closer Chris Perez gave up the go-ahead run in the ninth as the Indians four-game winning streak came to an end. The Indians entered Sunday trailing Tampa Bay by a game in the battle for the second wild card spot in the American League. Cleveland was trying for its first five-game winning streak since a season-best eight-game run July 24-Aug. 1, but its offence was stopped cold by five Mets pitchers. The Indians only run came in the sixth when Asdrubal Cabrera was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Cabrera had a chance to put the Indians ahead in the eighth but bounced into an inning-ending double play with the bases loaded. The Indians had one last shot in the ninth. Jason Giambi led off the inning with a bloop single to left, his 2,000th career hit. With one out, pinch-runner Mike Aviles was thrown out attempting to steal second and ejected by umpire Gary Darling for arguing the call. Drew Stubbs struck out to end the game. "Its something Ill always treasure, but Id trade it for a win," Giambi said of his milestone hit. "We needed to come back and tie it there." The Indians open a three-game series Monday against Kansas City, another contender for a wild card spot. "We took two of three in this series, you have to look at it that way," said pitcher Joe Smith, who worked out a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the eighth. "We come back on the horse tomorrow. We need to take care of business when they come in." While the Indians are in the playoff hunt, they havent caught on with Clevelands fans. With the Browns opening the NFL season at home against Miami, Sundays baseball game drew a crowd of only 13,317. Eric Youngs two-out double in the ninth sent the Indians to defeat. Juan Lagares started the rally with a single off Perez (5-3) and moved to second on a sacrifice. Omar Quintanilla struck out, but Young lined a 2-0 pitch down the right field line. Frank Francisco (1-0), in his first appearance of the season, threw the double play ball to Cabrera. LaTroy Hawkins pitched the ninth for his eighth save. Daisuke Matsuzaka, who spent most of the season pitching for the Indians Triple-A team in Columbus, Ohio, took a one-hit shutout into the sixth before literally being driven out of the game. He retired the first two batters before Jason Kipnis singled and Carlos Santana walked. Jason Kubels linne drive back to the mound appeared to hit Matsuzaka in the chest and rolled away, loading the bases.dddddddddddd. Mets manager Terry Collins went to the mound and pulled Matsuzaka for right-hander Vic Black, who hit Cabrera in the lower right leg with his second pitch to force in a run and tie the game. Matsuzaka pitched poorly in his first three starts with the Mets since being signed last month, leading to speculation his days with the team were numbered. He was charged with one run in 5 2-3 innings, which should buy him some extra time with the Mets. "He pitched an outstanding game," Collins said. "Boy, I was really happy for him." Justin Turner hit a leadoff homer in the fourth off Indians starter Danny Salazar, the only run the rookie allowed in four innings. Turner was injured in the sixth while sliding into second base when he took a hard tag in the head from Cabrera. He was on the ground for a couple of minutes but stayed in the game. Salazar struck out eight in three innings, including five in a row, but a high pitch count prevented him from working deeper into the game. He was pulled after throwing 80 pitches. The Indians dont want to take any chances with the 23-year-old right-hander, who had Tommy John surgery in 2010 and has already pitched a career-high 130 innings between the minors and majors. "The good thing was that he was strong, but maybe he was too strong," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "He had a real hard time keeping the ball down today. Because of that his pitch count was high. He had a hard time working down today." NOTES: Mets RHP Matt Harvey (elbow) will be examined by Dr. James Andrews to determine if he needs reconstruction surgery. Harvey was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Aug. 27 with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament. ... OF Michael Brantley could return to the team Monday. His wife, Melissa, gave birth to the couples first child Saturday night. .... Francona said RHP Justin Masterson (strained left oblique) will likely accompany the team on a road trip that begins Thursday in Chicago.
