Pacioretty's 2 goals lead Canadiens over Capitals, 3-2

WASHINGTON (AP) Two nights after Montreal Canadiens coach Claude Julien criticized his team's effort, the Canadiens made sure that didn't happen again.

On Wednesday, Montreal lost 4-1 in Julien's return to Boston, where he had long coached the Bruins. Against the Washington Capitals on Friday night, Julien had no complaints as his team broke a three-game losing streak with a 3-2 win.

Max Pacioretty had two goals and an assist, and Paul Byron also scored for the Canadiens. Antii Niemi, playing in place of Carey Price, who had been in goal for eight consecutive games, stopped 24 shots.
