Canadiens stun Penguins 2-0 to win qualifying round series

TORONTO (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins entered their qualifying round matchup against Montreal healthy but wary. Optimistic but guarded. While they'd shown plenty of grit during a regular season that featured extended absences by high-profile names on their star-laden roster, in a short series facing a goaltender like Carey Price, they took nothing for granted.

In the end, they ended up taking nothing at all.

Artturi Lehkonen flipped a shot past Tristan Jarry with 4:11 remaining to lift Canadiens to a stunning 2-0 victory on Friday to clinch Montreal's first playoff berth in three years.
