Alex Stalock stopped 28 shots for the reeling Wild. They dropped to 1-6-0.....

     MONTREAL (AP) - Carey Price made 17 saves for his first shutout of the season and Victor Mete and Nick Suzuki scored their first NHL goals in a first-period burst in the Montreal Canadiens' 4-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night.
 
     Joel Armia and Brendan Gallagher also scored and Nick Cousins had an assist in his Montreal debut to help the Canadiens improve to 3-2-2. The 32-year-old Price has 45 career shutouts.
 
     Alex Stalock stopped 28 shots for the reeling Wild. They dropped to 1-6-0.
 
     Playing his 127th NHL game, the 21-year-old Mete opened the scoring with 5:23 left in the first. He found space in the slot, took a backhand pass from Cousins from behind the net and beat Stalock to the glove side. That ended the longest goal drought to start a career in Canadiens history, a mark previously held by Mike Komisarek at 122 games.
 
     Armia connected on a 5-on-3 power play with 2:28 left in the first. He leads Montreal with four goal.
 
     Suzuki scored with 37 seconds remaining in the period. A whiffed shot from Jeff Petry landed right on Suzuki's backhand before Stalock could cover the right post.
 
     Gallagher put a fourth past Stalock at 12:40 of the third period.
 
     NOTES: The Canadiens beat Minnesota for the first time since Nov. 8, 2014, snapping a streak of nine losses. ... Mete and Suzuki are the first Canadiens to score their first NHL goals in the same game since 2005, when Chris Higgins and Alexander Perezhogin did it against the New York Rangers.

     MLB-ALCS

     NEW YORK (AP) - George Springer and Carlos Correa each hit three-run homers and the Houston Astros got another wild ace off the hook to beat the sloppy New York Yankees 8-3 Thursday night and reach the cusp of a second World Series visit in three years. The Astros lead the AL Championship Series 3-1, putting the 2017 World Series winners on the brink of a showdown with the NL champion Washington Nationals.

     Houston still has Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole queued up for this series, and the Yankees will have to beat both to survive. Verlander will start Game 5 on Friday night against James Paxton.

     NFL-CHIEFS-BRONCOS

     DENVER (AP) - Reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes injured his right knee in a pileup near the goal line before his Kansas City teammates rallied around their fallen superstar for a 30-6 thrashing of Denver Thursday night.

     Backup Matt Moore threw a 57-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill and the Chiefs had nine sacks, gave up a season-low 71 yards rushing and snapped a two-game skid in beating the Broncos for the eighth straight time.

     His balky left ankle heavily taped, Mahomes completed 10 of 11 passes for 76 yards and a touchdown before he got hurt on a successful sneak on fourth-and-inches at the Denver 5 early in the second quarter.

     The Broncos had won two straight after a winless September and were hoping to turn the AFC West upside down by handling the Chiefs their third straight loss.

    NASCAR NEWS

     CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Clint Bowyer has reached an agreement with Stewart-Haas Racing to return to the No. 14 Ford next season. Bowyer has been with SHR for three of his 15 seasons in the Cup Series. His extension announced Thursday came as the Kansas native headed to his home track on the verge of elimination from the playoffs.
 
     Bowyer, from Emporia, Kansas, is 11th in the 12-driver playoff field going into Sunday's race at Kansas Speedway. The bottom four drivers in the standings will be eliminated after Kansas.
 
     "I'm proud to be back with Stewart-Haas Racing next year and very happy to announce it the week leading into my home race," Bowyer said. "This is a team filled with racers who love to compete, and as a racecar driver, it's exactly where you want to be. Great equipment, great teammates, and we're all backed by great people."
 
     Bowyer was hired to replace team co-owner Tony Stewart following Stewart's retirement after the 2016 season. He made his 500th career start last weekend, has twice qualified for the playoffs driving for SHR but likely needs to win at Kansas to keep his championship chances rolling.
 
     "Clint Bowyer is a racer to his core who brings passion and energy to our race team," said Stewart. "He's exactly who I wanted to drive my No. 14 car and we're very happy to have him continue with Stewart-Haas Racing."
 
    Elsewhere in NASCAR:

     - Two NASCAR teams on their way to Kansas Speedway were involved in separate traffic incidents that damaged race cars. JTG Daugherty Racing owner Tad Geschickter said Thursday the team transporter for Ryan Preece's No. 47 Cup Series entry caught fire while traveling to Kansas. He said both drivers are fine and the team is "assessing the damage of our trailer and race cars." The location of the incident was not immediately specified.
 
     The JTG announcement came roughly 12 hours after Kaulig Racing's truck was in an accident in North Carolina. The Kaulig truck went off the right side of the road, through a guardrail and down an embankment, then overturned and came to a stop in a wooded area. Both truck drivers were transported to a hospital for evaluation, and the team said Thursday both drivers had been released.
 
     Ross Chastain is scheduled to drive the Xfinity race at Kansas on Saturday for Kaulig.
