In handing the Canadiens their first regulation home loss, and Price his first regulation loss of the season, the Senators had to claw back from one goal defecits three times before finally taking the lead after Karlsson's shot from the side boards went in off the skate of Jeff Petry, who was occupied with trying to move Jean-Gabriel Pageau from Price's eyeline.

"We did a good job, forechecking hard, capitalizing on turnovers", said Karlsson, who reached the 400-point plateau with an assist in the second period. The Senators are not playing good hockey lately and they are in need of a win to get their record back on track.

NOTES: Anderson made 36 saves while Price stopped 19 of 23 shots in defeat.

The result was stunning on several fronts. Longtime Blues captain David Backes scored for Boston in his first game against his former club, putting the Bruins up 1-0 early in the first with the 20,000th goal in franchise history.

"You feel you're in the same spot, treading water, but there's nothing you can do but take it one game at a time", said Pateryn, a 2008 Toronto draft pick who was acquired that same year in a deal that sent Mikhail Grabovski to the Maple Leafs. "We felt good out there today, and we're going to carry that into tomorrow's game".

Ottawa's Mark Stone and Erik Karlsson scored 2:24 apart in the third period, helping the Senators rally to win 4-3 at NHL-leading Montreal on Tuesday. Stone and Hoffman both had three points.

Brassard tied things 2-2 late in the second before Alex Galchenyuk answered back at 2:08 of the third.

The U.S., of course, gained nearly nothing financially from the JCPOA in contrast to its economic competitors in Europe and Asia. A lack of foreign investment could also endanger a possible re-election of moderate Iranian President Hassan Rowhani next May.

After review, however, the puck crossed the goal-line before Price kicked it out.

The Canadiens regained their lead at 7:29 when Alexander Radulov scored after an impressive effort.

While Senators defenceman Dion Phaneuf was inexplicably caught in the neutral zone, Radulov deked and danced around Hoffman. The Russian dangled around Hoffman along the boards, cut to the net, shot on Craig Anderson once then scored on his own rebound while falling to the ice.

Such is the life of a third-pairing National Hockey League defenceman.

The Sterling Heights, Mich., native has played 71 games over five seasons for Montreal, posting two goals and eight assists.

Hoffman, returning to the lineup after missing two games with a groin injury, replied five minutes later, blasting a slapshot over Price's trapper following a ideal setup from Stone. Redmond is cleared to practice with the team, but Therrien is concerned with the amount of time since Redmond last played a game, which was September 29 in a preseason game against the Ottawa Senators.
