MONTREAL -- While growing up, Cam Talbot was a fan of Montreal Canadiens goaltending great Patrick Roy. Giuliano Jersey . And in his first game at the Bell Centre, the 26-year-old played a lot like Roy as he made 22 saves to earn in his NHL shutout in the New York Rangers 1-0 victory over the Canadiens on Saturday night. "I always idolized Patrick Roy so to do it in a building like this and on a stage like this, and to see his number up in the rafters, was an unbelievable feeling," the Caledonia, Ont., native said. Captain Ryan Callahan ended the Rangers four-year goal drought in Montreal when he got his sixth of the season on a second period power play for New York (10-9-0), which has won eight of its last 11 games. It wasnt the only mark of futility that ended for the Rangers on their visit to their old Original Six rival. Talbot, playing his fifth NHL game, became the first Rangers goalie to earn a shutout in Montreal since Ed Giacomin in a 5-0 win on Feb. 25, 1967 at the old Forum. "It means quite a bit to me," said Talbot, now 4-1-0 as an NHL goalie. "He and Mike Richter are two of the greatest Ranger goalies of all time, so to hear my name mentioned alongside his is pretty surreal, to be honest." The Canadiens (10-9-2) were coming off a 3-2 shootout win in Columbus on Friday night and spent most of the game a step behind the Rangers, who played the first of back-to-back games before playing Los Angeles at home on Sunday. The Rangers had a 34-22 edge in shots, and may have won by more had Carey Price not been outstanding in the Montreal net. "Its a game of inches," said Montreal coach Michel Therrien, whose team has scored only 18 times in its last 11 games "They capitalized on the power play and we had chances on ours and didnt capitalize. "We worked, and if we keep working like that good things are going to happen." Callahan broke the Rangers Bell Centre jinx just as a two-man advantage ended as he tipped Brad Richards blast from the left circle past Price 5:25 into the second period. The Canadiens went into the game with four straight shutouts against New York, including a 2-0 win Oct. 28 with Peter Budaj in goal. Price had blanked the Rangers the last four times he faced them at the Bell Centre and lost at home to them for the first time in eight meetings. Montreal was 7-0-1 at home against New York and had outscored them 25-3 since a 4-3 loss in March, 2009. "We were well aware of it," said Calahan. "We came in and had a good road game. "We got a good start and carried it through, and Talbot was unbelievable." Richards laughed when asked about the Rangers record of futility in Montreal. "I have nothing but great memories here since I was 17 and playing in the Quebec junior league all-star games," the former Rimouski Oceanic star said. "I always loved coming back here to play, so I didnt really get it and I dont think our new coach (Alain Vigneault) got it either, being from Quebec and knowing the history and how fun it is to play here. "He made a joke before the game that theres no ghosts here. Its a great place to play and lets have some fun. I think you guys and people in New York talk about it a lot, but as places to come and play, this is by far the best building." The only drawback was that Talbot didnt get the puck at the end of the game, as a Canadiens player flipped it into the crowd. Talbot said a teammate picked one up for him at the scorers bench. The Rangers dressed Talbot largely because Henrik Lundqvist, who will play against Los Angeles, often struggles in Montreal. The good news for Montreal was that physical defenceman Alexei Emelin, who blew out a knee in April, made his season debut and played a solid 16 minutes paired with veteran Francis Bouillon. His knee survived an early hit on Chris Kreider that was very much like the play he was injured on. "It was exactly the same type of hit," said Therrien. "For his confidence, that was probably the best thing that could happen. I really liked his first game." Notes -- Emelin bumped Douglas Murray from the lineup. Brendan Gallagher, who sat out Friday with a flu, was back but was used sparingly. Ryan White and George Parros were scratched. . . The Rangers expect to have star forward Rick Nash back from a concussion either Tuesday against Boston or Thursday at Dallas. Michael Del Zotto and Brandon Mashinter didnt dress. Fabinho Jersey .

The Canucks picked up their second straight victory in the swings opener on Tuesday in Calgary before getting routed in Minnesota last night, 5-1. .Balotelli uploaded on Instagram a picture of the video-game character Super Mario, with whom the Italy international shares a nickname, with text around the image including jumps like a black man and grabs coins like a Jew.Darren Fletcher believes continuity can play an important role in helping Scotland end their long wait for another appearance at a major tournament. The 32-year-old West Brom captain won the first of his 70 caps in August 2003 under Berti Vogts as a second-half substitute in a goalless draw against Norway.Since then he has played under Walter Smith, Alex McLeish, George Burley, Craig Levein and caretaker Billy Stark, none of whom managed to take the Scots beyond a qualifying phase. Indeed, it will be 20 years since they last played in a finals event when the World Cup takes place in Russia in the summer of 2018.Despite failing to qualify for Euro 2016, Gordon Strachan has signed a two-year extension and begins preparing for the upcoming qualifiers in that competition with a challenging match against Czech Republic.Denmark then visit Hampden Park next Tuesday and Fletcher believes the managers decision to stick around could make the difference this time. Darren Fletcher hopes a more settled future can help Scotland to the World Cup finals He said: Continuity is not something Ive had in my Scotland career. There have been a lot of changes in managers.There have been times we have started groups really well and been on the verge of qualifying only for managers to be taken away to club jobs. Miranda Jersey. Weve seen the opposite when managers havent done so well and lost their jobs. To have that consistency over a couple of campaigns is not something Ive had in my Scotland career.Everyone knows if you stick with the manager and give him time when he is doing the right things, then ultimately youre going to get success from that.Only one team will progress direct to Russia from Scotlands qualifying group after two advances in the European preliminaries. Gordon Strachan is tasked with leading Scotland to a major finals tournament for the first time in 20 years Fletcher added: Its about realising you cant have an off night, especially in a World Cup group where only one team goes through and one goes into the play-offs.When you find yourselves in good positions against your rivals then you need to see the games out. Its about brushing up on those small margins that will really help us.I really want to get to a major tournament with my country. Its one of those things you dream about. Im desperate to tick it off my list.
