Manziel had lost his six previous games with Montreal.
“I’m damn excited,” Manziel said. “It was a good win for our team. But finally to get the first win out of the way, and to do it at the end of the season where I feel we’re building into something, this season into the next season, it’s what we wanted to do. . . No matter how cold, how bad the weather was, today was fun.”READ MORE: Pavelski Reaches 400 Career Goals As Stars Beat Avalanche 3-1
