2-1 under their new Coach Claude Julien.
The 42-year-old Julien led Hamilton to a league-best 33-6-3-3 record and was in the midst of a 25-game points streak (21
2-2) before replacing Michel Therrien in Montreal on Jan. 17. The Bulldogs lost that night, ending their run two games shy of the AHL record.
After dropping a 3-2 overtime decision to Toronto in his Canadiens' debut on Jan. 18, Julien has led Montreal to three wins and two ties.
Zednik set a career high with his 23rd goal early in the first period and completed his third multi-goal game of the season late in the second to give Montreal a 4-3 lead.
