Gallagher puts Canadiens ahead in 4-1 win over Stars

MONTREAL (AP) The biggest ovation at the Bell Centre didn't come for Carey Price's stellar goaltending or for Brendan Gallagher's tiebreaking goal. It was for an assist by veteran defenseman Andrei Markov.

By flipping a pass to Artturi Lehkonen for a one-timer that beat Kari Lehtonen in Montreal's 4-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night, Markov moved into a tie with Hall of Famer Guy Lapointe for second in career points by a Canadiens defenseman with 572, behind only Larry Robinson's 833.

When the assist was announced, the sellout crowd rose and applauded the Russian who has been a stalwart on the Montreal defense since 2000-01.
