Markov scores twice, sets up Weber as Canadiens top Sens 3-1

MONTREAL (AP) Andrei Markov doesn't always seem thrilled to speak with the Montreal media. On Saturday night, he just couldn't help himself.

Markov scored two goals and set up another and the Canadiens beat the Ottawa Senators 3-1 to retain first place in the Atlantic Division.

"Tonight I just had opportunities to shoot," Markov said. "I closed my eyes and shot."
