Paul Byron breaks late tie, Canadiens beat Maple Leafs 4-2


MONTREAL (AP) — Paul Byron broke a tie with 2:28 left, Jake Allen made 49 saves and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 on Saturday night. Taking advantage of a Toronto turnover, Byron skated the puck the length of the ice and waited patiently before beating Erik Kallgren. David Savard scored in consecutive games, Cole Caufield added a goal and Christian Dvorak had an empty-netter. Savard and Byron each had an assist and Nick Suzuki had two. Auston Matthews and William Nylander scored for Toronto and Mitch Marner had two assists. Matthews opened the scoring 36 seconds into the game with his NHL-leading 47th goal. He matched his career high set in 2019-20.
