|The Montreal Canadiens' assault on the record books continued unabated Saturday night.
Montreal achieved a trio of notable feats in a 5-0 victory over the Detroit Red Wings:
The Canadiens won their 10th straight home game to start a season for the first time in their 99-year NHL history.
Montreal is the third team in league history to win its first 10 home games in a season, joining the 1925-26 Ottawa Senators (10-0-0) and the 1963-64 Chicago Black Hawks (11-0-0).
Carey Price became the first goaltender in NHL history to win each of his first 10 games to begin a campaign.
Michel Therrien said it's getting difficult to come up with new ways to explain Price's dominance.
"It's hard to describe his performances because we're constantly repeating ourselves," the Canadiens head coach told reporters postgame, according to NHL.com's Arpon Basu.
Carey Price wins his 13th straight NHL start, is 23-2-0 in his past 25 NHL regular season starts, 28-2-0 including World Cup.

The Canadiens won their fourth consecutive game and improved to 13-1-1 with the shutout win.
Montreal matched the franchise record for consecutive home wins to start a season in Thursday's 4-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings.
