MONTREAL (AP) -- Ryan White scored the winner at 16:08 of the third period to send the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils in a preseason game Monday night.

Max Pacioretty scored two power-play goals for the Canadiens and Carey Price made 19 saves.

Michael Ryder and Adam Larsson scored for the Devils, while Martin Brodeur stopped 22 shots.

Montreal went 2 for 4 on the power play, while New Jersey failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Pacioretty beat Brodeur on the glove-side 2:22 into the second and Ryder tied it 1:43 later with a high floater from the blue-line that went off Price and in.

Pacioretty got his second goal when he beat Brodeur with a backhander at 8:32 of the middle frame.

Larsson tied it again on a deflected shot from the point with 3:23 left in the second.

White deflected Jarred Tinordi's shot past Brodeur for the winner.
