Scott Hartnell scored three goals and the Philadelphia Flyers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 7-3 victory over the Canadiens on Monday night in Montreal.

A moment of silence was held at the Bell Centre before the game for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek each had a goal and two assists, and Wayne Simmonds and Erik Gustafsson also scored for the Flyers, who matched their season high for goals as they try to make a late push for a playoff spot.


The Canadiens have had two lopsided losses since clinching a playoff spot on Thursday and for the second straight game, Carey Price was pulled from the Montreal net. He left at the end of the second period after allowing six goals on 29 shots.
