MONTREAL (AP) -- Jeff Petry scored the go-ahead goal 6:32 into the third period and the Montreal Canadiens moved to 6-0-0 for the first time in franchise history with a 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. Brendan Gallagher scored in the second, Tomas Plekanec made it 3-1 and then Brian Flynn scored an empty-netter for Montreal, which last went unbeaten in its first six games in 1977-78 (5-0-1). Rookie Dylan Larkin scored for Detroit (3-2-0), which lost its second game in a row. The Canadiens entered the game only 2 for 21 on the power play but scored twice with the man advantage. They had a 41-22 edge in shots on Detroit, but Petr Mrazek was sharp in goal. Larkin, who extended his career-opening points streak to five games, opened the scoring 4:47 into the second frame when he flipped a backhander toward the net and saw it sneak past Carey Price's pad on the near side.
