MONTREAL (AP) -- Sven Andrighetto was the only player to score in a five-round shootout, leading the Montreal Canadiens past the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Sunday.

Ben Scrivens stopped all five Carolina shooters, including Eric Staal on the final attempt, to secure the win.

Max Pacioretty scored in regulation for Montreal, which swept a pair of weekend afternoon games after beating Edmonton 5-1 on Saturday.

Jeff Skinner scored for Carolina.

The Hurricanes had most of the scoring chances in the opening period, but only converted when Skinner went to the net and tipped Jordan Staal's shot past Scrivens at 2:27. Skinner has points in five straight games.

Pacioretty tied it 8:11 into the second period when he took a diagonal feed from Andrei Markov and scored his 20th of the season with a wrister from the right circle. The Canadiens captain ended a seven-game goal-less drought.

The Hurricanes outshot Montreal 34-31 in regulation time, and 35-34 overall.

It was a game of round number milestones as Markov and Eric Staal each played his 900th game and Montreal center Torrey Mitchell played his 500th. Staal, 31, has amassed 772 points while the 37-year-old Markov, who missed large parts of three seasons with knee injuries, has 518.

NOTES: It is the 25th year the Canadiens have played back-to-back afternoon games at home during Super Bowl weekend. ... Scrivens started a second straight game for Montreal. ... D Nathan Beaulieu was a healthy scratch for a second game in a row.
