MONTREAL (AP) — Ryan Callahan ended New York's four-year-old goal drought in Montreal and rookie Cam Talbot made 22 saves for his first NHL shutout and the Rangers blanked the Canadiens 1-0 on Saturday night.

Callahan scored his sixth goal of the season for New York, which has won eight of its past 11 games.

Talbot, who replaced Martin Biron as the backup goalie, became the first Rangers goalie to earn a shutout in Montreal since Ed Giacomin in a 5-0 win on Feb. 25, 1967.

The Rangers outshot Montreal 34-22.

The Canadiens were coming off a 3-2 shootout win in Columbus on Friday night and spent most of the game a step behind the Rangers, who played the first of back-to-back games before playing Los Angeles at home on Sunday.

Callahan broke the Rangers' Bell Centre drought just as a two-man advantage ended as he tipped Brad Richard's blast from the left circle past Carey Price 5:25 into the second period.
