MONTREAL -- The Toronto Maple Leafs had many reasons to be upset Saturday night, but it was Max Paciorettys showboating that stood out the most. Babe Ruth Braves Jersey . Pacioretty celebrated his second goal of Montreals 4-2 victory over the Leafs on Saturday night by twirling his stick and pretending to sheathe it like a sword. "The goal stirred our emotions a bit," said Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle. "If they want to hot dog, spin the sword, those kind of things... That was what stirred the pot." "You dont really like to see that kind of stuff," added Toronto forward James van Riemsdyk. Pacioretty put the Canadiens up 4-0 at that point, and coach Carlyle thought the celebration was exactly what his Leafs needed. "Thats when we got involved in the game," said Carlyle. "We got emotionally involved. We were better after that." Toronto answered with two quick goals. Riemsdyk netted the first, lifting the puck from a tight angle into the roof of the net over a crouching Carey Price at 18:10 of the second. And Mason Raymond, who was on the ice for Paciorettys goal and said the celebration ignited him, scored 22 seconds later to make it 4-2. "Normally its a bad break, when you allow a goal at the end of a period," said Pacioretty. "The period ending there helped us. We had time to recuperate, we figured out what we did wrong." The Canadiens kept the Leafs off the score sheet in the third, extending Torontos winless streak away from home to seven games. "We need to find our spark," said Laval-native Jonathan Bernier, who made 35 saves for the Leafs. "We have to be excited to play, and we have to find a way to score goals. Thats what we were doing at the start of the season." The Canadiens wasted no time getting their first past Bernier after the Leafs took a penalty for interference in the games first minute. Pacioretty scored his eighth of the season on the power play at 0:58 after taking a crisp pass from P.K. Subban, who was deep in his own zone. Pacioretty walked in on the breakaway and got off three shots on net before sliding one past Berniers outstretched leg. "The power-play goal put us back on our heels," said Carlyle. "They made a stretch pass, we didnt have coverage on Pacioretty, and he got three whacks at it. Thats how far we were behind on the play." Price got an assist on the goal, his first point of the season. Subban added to the lead at 16:13 of the first after a David Desharnais face-off win landed on his stick. Subban took a step towards the goal and beat Bernier with a wrist shot over his blocker. The goal was the first for a Habs defenceman in nine games dating back to Nov. 7, when Andrei Markov scored against the Senators. The Canadiens added to their lead at 15:05 of the second period when Tomas Plekanec fired home his ninth of the year on a two-on-one with Daniel Briere. Pacioretty put the game out of reach two minutes later while playing shorthanded. He followed up with his celebration. "It was a strange shot," said Bernier. "His release surprised me. Its a goal that I would love to get back. I was expecting a wider shot. Thats a stop I need to make." The goal was Paciorettys team-leading ninth of the year. He also finished the game with an assist, and took a career-high 10 shots on net. "His play does his talking for him," said Subban of Pacioretty. "When hes confident, hes one of our best forwards. "He can do it all. Hes big, he can skate, hes physical, he can shoot the puck, probably one of the harder wristers in the league. Its a big boost for our team." Price made 34 saves on the night and is fifth-best in the league among goaltenders with a .937 save percentage. Both the Canadiens (15-9-3) and Maple Leafs (14-10-3) were coming off 3-2 losses in extra time on Friday night. Montreal lost to the Washington Capitals in a shootout, while Buffalo scored 38 seconds into overtime to beat Toronto.

The Caps will face former defender Alain Rochat and midfielder John Thorrington as they visit D.C. United in Washington. Of the two, Rochat is expected to play a more prominent role as he tries to curb Vancouvers potent offence after being traded unexpectedly for a pair of draft picks in early June. "(Rochat) brought the same thing here that he brings to D.C. -- obviously his presence as a veteran and his ability to get forward and his ability to defend," said Vancouver goalkeeper Brad Knighton. "Im sure they enjoy having him, and itll be good to see him." Thorrington, a steady performer who has battled injuries, made 35 appearances for Vancouver between 2011 and 2012 before being waived in the off-season. The Whitecaps (6-5-4) are looking to win their third straight game and fifth in the past seven. United is in last place overall with a 2-11-3 mark, but is coming off a win over San Jose. Vancouver has scored 11 goals in its past four games, but the Whitecaps need to shore up their goals-against record. They have allowed 24 goals -- the fourth-highest total in the league. "Were obviously scoring goals at a premium right now, which is great for us," said Knighton. "We just need to be sound defensively, and the wins will keep coming." Currently fifth in the Western Conference, the Whitecaps have a chance to move ahead of four-place Los Angeles, pending the Galaxys result Saturday against the San Jose Earthquakes. Vancouver coach Martin Rennie said his charges have to balance their offensive prowess with better defence as they attempt to move up the table. While winning their last two games against New England and Chivas USA, the Whitecaps had to overcome deficits. "Weve been scoring a lot of goals," said Rennie. "So we need to make sure that we keep attacking teams and making sure that were creating chances. "I think that, as a team, we generally need to defend better, although against Chivas, they didnt really have too many chances. We limited their opportunities. So we need to do that well in the next game." The Whitecaps are surging after struggling early in the season. Rennie said another victory will do a lot for the teams morale as the organizatiion, in its third MLS season, strives to become one of the leagues top clubs. Deion Sanders Jersey. "Confidence is hard to build, and were still working hard to build that," said Rennie. "As a team in general, were still a new team trying to create a positive culture, and I think these little steps do make a difference. Every time you get a win and go on a winning run and show good form, that always builds confidence. "Its such a tight league, Major League Soccer, so if we can go on a run and keep doing well, then we can move up the league fairly quickly." The Whitecaps will return to action following a 10-day break that has allowed some injured players to mend. Midfielder Gershon Koffie (thigh) and Brad Rusin (calf) are healthy again after they both missed the past four games. "Im looking forward to getting out there, scoring goals and, hopefully, getting a clean sheet," said Rusin, who is slated to play a holding midfield role instead of his usual central defender spot. Johnny Leveron and Carlyle Mitchell will continue in the centre back spots, while Nigel Reo-Coker, usually a midfielder, is slated to shift to right fullback, a position that he has played occasionally in the English Premier League and in the first leg of the Amway Canadian Championship against Montreal this season. He is making the move because veteran Young-Pyo Lee, 36, is being rested back in Vancouver. The game is the first of two straight on the road for the Whitecaps, who conclude their trip Wednesday in Kansas City.
