MONTREAL -- Before the Montreal Canadiens home opener, the Bell Centre crowd gave a huge ovation to ailing goaltender Carey Price.After the game, they did the same for his replacement.Veteran backup Al Montoya, filling in for a third straight game while Price recovers from the flu, made 36 saves to lead the Canadiens to a 4-0 victory over the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night.In three starts to begin the season, Montoya has a 1.30 goals-against average and a .962 save percentage.I feel Ive been trying to make a statement for a while, said Montoya, a backup most of his career who signed as a free agent this summer from the Florida Panthers. For me, this is just an opportunity to play.I dont try to overdo anything. I come out, have fun, play my game and let the rest take care of itself. The win is fantastic. Thats all we play for, but maybe (the shutout) was the cherry on top.David Desharnais scored twice and another offseason signing, Alexander Radulov, got his first goal as a Canadien with Montoya picking up an assist. Max Pacioretty also scored for Montreal, 2-0-1.When you see Monty make some of those saves, it gives us an opportunity to try to get him the shutout and try to get some goals for him, Pacioretty said. You have to credit most of that game to him because he was incredible.He played great all three games, but tonight, he gave us a chance. After our goal they had a flurry of chances. There were a couple of times in the first period when he had to come up big. The timeliness of those saves allowed us to get some momentum.Price fell ill just before the start of the regular season. He got back to work on his own on Sunday and had his first workout with his teammates in the morning skate on Tuesday. It was uncertain if he will be ready to play when the Arizona Coyotes visit Thursday night.The Penguins, coming off an overtime loss at home Monday night, played their first road game of the season. Pittsburgh outshot the Canadiens 36-32.We have to forget these two games and look forward, Penguins star Evgeni Malkin said. We have to stay positive right now.We knew (Price) was not playing. We know they have a good team. It was opening game for Montreal. And Montoyas a good goalie too. He saved a lot tonight. But we need to score goals because we have great four lines. We had lots of power plays too (0 for 8), but made lots of mistakes.There were 30 shots taken in the first -- 17-13 for Pittsburgh -- but it was on only the second of the period that Pacioretty opened the scoring at 23 seconds as he took a feed in the slot from Jeff Petry and beat Marc-Andre Fleury with a wrist shot.Desharnais was parked alone in front of Fleury when he slammed in Paciorettys blind, backhand pass from the corner 12:07 into the second.Radulov scored 4:31 into the third as he burst down the right wing and cut in front. The Penguins challenged, claiming goaltender interference by Brendan Gallagher, but the goal stood.Desharnais was alone at the side of the net to tap in a cross-ice pass from Jeff Petry at 13:44 after sustained pressure in the Pittsburgh zone.Game notes The Canadiens made one lineup change, sending in Brian Flynn for Dan Carr. ... Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby (concussion) did not play. ... The Penguins went with Fleury in goal for a second consecutive night rather than use backup Mike Condon, who they claimed off waivers from Montreal two weeks ago. Condon lost the backup job in camp to Montoya. ... In pre-game introductions, former coach Jacques Demers, recovering from a stroke, brought out a torch in his wheelchair to pass to Pacioretty. Shea Weber, obtained in the deal for P.K. Subban, got the loudest applause of the players on the ice.UP NEXT:Penguins: host San Jose on Thursday.Candiens: host Arizona on Thursday.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Manager Ned Yosts wait is over -- finally.After being stuck on 999 victories since Sunday, Yost picked up his 1,000th managerial victory as the Kansas City Royals defeated the Chicago White 3-2 on Saturday night.Im glad its over now, Yost said. When I started this, I dont know why, I had just two goals. One was to help a team win a world championship (the Royals won the 2015 World Series) and the other was a thousand wins.Yost said his next goal is to win 1,001 games.He can achieve that goal Sunday as the four-game series with the White Sox continues at Kauffman Stadium.Yosts first managerial victory was April 8, 2003 with Milwaukee. The Brewers lost their first six games that season before defeating the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-3. The winning pitcher was left-hander Glendon Rusch, a former Royal, while Mike DeJean picked up a save. Rusch allowed just one hit over seven innings. Scott Podsednik, another former Royal, drove in two Milwaukee runs. Ironically, Jason Kendall, who is a special assignment coach on Yosts staff, hit a three-run homer for the Pirates.In Yosts 1,000th victory, Dillon Gee earned the W in relief, while Wade Davis collected his 25th save in 28 chances. Jarrod Dyson had two singles, extending his hitting streak to 10 games, and swiped his 28th base in Yosts milestone victory.Of the 62 managers with at least 1,000 wins, Yost is one of 13 with a sub-.500 record. He is 543-542 with the Royals and was 4577-502 with the Brewers.dddddddddddd.Left-hander Jose Quintana will draw his fourth starting assignment this season on Sunday against the Royals. While Quintana is 0-2 with a 3.32 ERA, allowing eight earned runs in 21 1/3 innings, in the first three starts, the White Sox offense has provided him with scant support. They have scored a total of two runs while he was on the mound, 0.83 runs support average. He has received one or no run support in those starts.Quintana limited the Royals to one run over 7 1/3 innings in a no-decision on Aug. 10 that the White Sox lost 3-2 in 14 innings.Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is just 10-for-59, a .169 average, against Quintana, but has two home runs and 10 RBI. Catcher Salvador Perez is hitting .351, 19-for-54, with two home runs and eight RBI off Quintana.The Royals will counter with left-hander Danny Duffy, who is 6-0 at Kauffman Stadium this season and has not lost at home since Sept. 5, 2015, a 6-1 setback against the White Sox. He is one of three major league pitchers unbeaten at home this season with at least six victories.Duffy is 11-2 with a 3.13 ERA, but is winless since Aug. 21. He has three no-decisions and an Aug. 27 lost at Boston since his last victory. Duffy is averaging 9.57 strikeouts per nine innings. The franchise record is Zack Greinke, 9.50 in 2009.
