GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Oliver Ekman-Larsson had a goal and two assists, and the Arizona Coyotes rolled over Montreal 6-2 Monday night to complete a season sweep over the Canadiens for the first time in 36 seasons as a franchise.

Arizona broke out of a scoring slump with an onslaught of goals against Montreal goalie Mike Condon, matching the three previous games combined with a season high in goals.

The Coyotes had 13 different players notch a point and (six) different goal scorers.

Martin Hanzal scored his third goal in four games and Anthony Duclair had a goal in the first period. Brad Richardson, Kevin Connauton and Ekman-Larsson scored in the second, with Antoine Vermette capping the scoring burst with a goal in the third.

Louis Domingue stopped 17 shots with a former club player serving as his backup after a pregame injury to Anders Lindback.
