Arizona (0-9-1) lost its 10th game to start the season and remains the only winless team in the NHL.

Josh Anderson scored his third of the season and Brendan Gallagher added an empty-netter for the Canadiens, who had lost three of their last four games — all on the road. Allen got his 23rd career shutout.

TORONTO (AP) — Auston Matthews scored twice and Jack Campbell made 26 saves, leading Toronto to its third straight win.

Marner scored in the first period for a second straight game. Matthews notched a power-play goal early in the second and scored again in the final minute of the second period.
