Roundup: Canadiens take down Jets

Lars Eller had four goals and an assist, Travis Moen had three assists, and the Canadiens bounced back from a poor road trip with a 7-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets last night in Montreal.

Eller scored his fourth goal of the game on a penalty shot 11 minutes into the third, spinning around to beat Chris Mason for his third tally of the period. He did a backward somersault over the Winnipeg goalie to the delight of the sold-out crowd of 21,273.

“I kind of decided before I went down that I wanted to do that spin move,’’ Eller said. “I knew the goalie was cold so it’s a good one, you’re always sure to get your shot off.’’

Andrei Kostitsyn added two assists as Eller’s line combined for 10 points.

“It might be a once-in-a-lifetime thing, four goals,’’ Eller said. “It’s just incredible, and I just want to thank my teammates for helping me.’’

Canucks 3, Wild 0 - Roberto Luongo made 28 saves as Vancouver moved to the top of the league standings with 53 points. Luongo earned his second shutout of the season - both against Minnesota - and 57th in his NHL career.

Sharks 3, Ducks 1 - Brad Winchester and former Boston College star Benn Ferriero scored 27 seconds apart in the second period to help visiting San Jose beat lowly Anaheim for the first time in four tries this season. Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf’s scoreless slump reached a career-worst six games.
