Byron, Drouin lead Canadiens past Penguins in shootout

MONTREAL (AP) Antti Niemi felt good after his first start of the season - and a win.

Niemi made 25 saves, and Paul Byron and Jonathan Drouin scored in the shootout to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.

Niemi, getting the start with Carey Price out with the flu, also stopped both shots in the shootout - on Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby.
