MONTREAL (AP) -Denis Wideman, Shawn Thornton and Marc Savard scored and Tim Thomas made 27 saves to lead the Boston Bruins to a 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.
Boston beat its Northeast Division rival for the fourth time in a row, improving to 4-1 this season against Montreal.
Wideman scored with 0.6 seconds remaining in the first period to tie the game 1-1. The Bruins defenseman got his 11th goal when he moved up in the slot to beat Carey Price with a wrist shot into the top left corner.
Thornton got credit for his fifth goal 8:02 into the second.
Savard scored into an empty net with 56.5 seconds remaining to extend his points streak to eight games.
Boston, which beat the New York Rangers 1-0 on Saturday, has recorded points in six straight games and has lost only once in regulation in its last 11 (8-1-2).
Robert Lang scored a power-play goal late in the first period for the Canadiens, who have lost five of six. Price made 19 saves.
Montreal, which was on an 11-1-2 run prior to its current skid, is second in the Northeast with 62 points, 18 behind the Bruins, who lead the Eastern Conference.
The Canadiens wore "barber pole" retro jerseys and socks featuring the distinctive look of narrow red, white and blue horizontal bands used by the team in 1912-13.
Henry was recalled from Hamilton of the AHL earlier in the day as Josh Gorges was held out of the lineup.
Gorges was forced to leave Saturday's 4-3 win over Los Angeles after he took a blow to the head earlier in the game when he was charged by Kings defenseman Denis Gauthier, who was assessed a major penalty and a game misconduct for the hit.
Lang opened the scoring with his 18th goal 18:18 in. The Czech center beat Thomas with a shot into the top right corner.
Lang left the game 9:33 into the third period and did not return. He was favoring his left leg as he was helped off the ice after he checked Stephane Yelle along the boards.
Canadiens left wing Guillaume Latendresse was also helped off the ice after he fell heavily into the boards in the right corner after he was checked by Chuck Kobasew deep in Montreal's zone.
Notes: Wideman extended his points streak to six games. He has three goals and three assists over that span. ... Henry made his first NHL appearance since 2005-06, his second season with Minnesota. ... The Canadiens' retro jerseys feature a white maple leaf logo on the front with "CAC" - for Club Ahletique Canadien - printed inside in blue. They were the fourth style of uniform worn by the franchise, which was a founding member of the National Hockey Association, the NHL's predecessor.
