MONTREAL, Dec. 8 (UPI) -- Ryan Whitney had two goals and an assist Saturday to help the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Montreal Canadiens 5-1.

Whitney's 13th and 14th goals of the season -- one on the power play in the second period -- came after Carolina had built a 3-1 advantage. He assisted when Erik Cole opened the scoring at 3:51 of the first period.

Carolina's Eric Staal and Rod Brind'Amour each scored a goal.

Goaltender Cam Ward stopped 35 of 36 shots for the Hurricanes, who had dropped four of their previous five road contests.

Montreal's goal came from Andrei Kostitsyn on the power play at 9:36 of the second.

Goalies Carey Price and Jaroslav Halak combined to yield five goals on 36 shots for the Canadiens, who took two out of three earlier games against Carolina this season.

On the power play, Carolina converted both of its opportunities, while the Canadiens went 1 for 6.
