BOSTON (AP) — Brad Marchand scored twice 15 seconds apart in the first period and completed the hat trick with a short-handed goal in the second, leading the Boston Bruins to a 5-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

Curtis Lazar also scored for Boston and Urho Vaakanainen got his first NHL goal. Linus Ullmark stopped 24 shots as he tries to hold onto his spot in the goalie rotation with Tuukka Rask, the winningest goalie in franchise history, expected to make his season debut on Thursday night.

It was the Bruins’ third straight win — their sixth in seven games — and the third time in a row they have opened a four-goal lead. Michael Pezzetta scored midway through the second period for Montreal to make it 4-1 and spoil Ullmark’s shutout bid.

Jake Allen gave up two goals on seven shots in the first 17:11 before he was replaced by Sam Montembeault, who stopped 31 of 34 shots the rest of the way.

DALLAS (AP) — Joe Pavelski had two goals and three assists for his firs career five-point game, Jason Robertson scored to extend his NHL-best home point streak to 11 games and Dallas beat Seattle.

Jared McCann had his team-leading 15th goal and also assisted on Calle Jarnkrok’s power-play goal for the Kraken, who are 0-5-1 in their last six games. Philipp Grubauer had 20 saves.
