     MONTREAL (AP) - Mikael Granlund scored, Devan Dubnyk stopped 32 shots for his first shutout of the season and the Minnesota Wild defeated the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 Monday night. The Wild have won three straight games, all on the road. Carey Price stopped 24 shots for the Canadiens, who have dropped two in a row.
     Montreal lost Shea Weber to injury. The Canadiens' captain was hit in the face by a puck while blocking a shot six minutes into the first period.
     Granlund scored the game's only goal at 6:58 of the third period after pouncing on a no-look pass giveaway by Montreal defenseman Jeff Petry deep in his own zone. Granlund scored his 12th of the season when he waited out Price, who was partially blocked by players in front of the net.
     The Wild have won eight consecutive games against the Canadiens dating to Nov. 8, 2014. Granlund has at least a point in each of those victories.
     Weber blocked a shot by Granlund and the puck rode up his own stick and hit him on the left cheek. Weber winced in pain on the bench but played seven more shifts and finished the first period. He did not return for the second. The 33-year-old already missed the first 24 games of the season with foot and knee injuries dating to last season.
     Defensemen Petry, Victor Mete and Jordie Benn were forced to carry the load of Weber's absence, playing 26 minutes, 40 seconds, 21:15 and 21:12, respectively.
     Montreal was also without forward Kenny Agostino for most of the game. Agostino was given a game misconduct just 2:28 in because of a late hit on Minnesota's Eric Fehr, who left the game after hitting his head on the edge of the players' bench. Fehr did not return.
     The depleted roster took its toll in the third period as Granlund netted his first goal since Nov. 29.
     The Canadiens failed to avenge a 7-1 loss in the teams' last meeting. It was Montreal's worst defeat of the season.
     NOTES: The Wild took a season-high 23 penalty minutes in the first period. . The Canadiens announced Monday that Price will not attend the NHL All-Star Game due to "a nagging injury."

     SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Clemson is the national champion in college football for the second time in three years after handing Alabama its most lopsided loss under head coach Nick Saban.
     Trevor Lawrence passed for 347 yards and three touchdowns as the Tigers blasted the Crimson Tide, 44-16 in the College Football Playoff national championship game at Santa Clara, California. Lawrence threw TD passes to Travis Etienne, Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross to help undefeated Clemson become the first team in the AP poll era starting in 1936 to win 15 games in a season.
     Etienne had three first-half TDs for Clemson, which actually trailed 16-14 in the second quarter before forging a 31-16 advantage by halftime. He finished with 86 yards on 14 carries.
     A.J. Terrell brought back an interception 44 yards for a touchdown on Alabama's opening drive. Heisman Trophy runner-up Tua Tagovailoa threw a second interception and was 22 of 34 for 295 yards with two first-quarter TDs, along with minus-9 yards rushing.
     Clemson is the first opponent to beat the Tide by more than 14 points since Saban became coach in 2007.
     Alabama was seeking its sixth national championship in the last 10 seasons.

     UNDATED (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs have their longest winning streak of the season after knocking off the Pistons in Detroit.

     It was the Spurs' fifth straight win and the 1,221st of coach Gregg Popovich's career. Popovich is tied with Jerry Sloan for third on the all-time wins list, behind only Don Nelson and Lenny Wilkens.
     San Antonio has won 13 of 17 since an 11-14 start.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Nashville Predators seem to have righted the ship since their season-worst, six-game losing streak.
     Nashville blanked the Maple Leafs in Toronto, 4-0 as Pekka Rinne handled 18 shots in his third shutout of the season and 54th of his career. Mattias Ekholm, Kevin Fiala and Colton Sissons each had a goal and an assist for the Predators, who have won four of five since their losing skid.

Brayden Schenne and Vladimir Tarasenko scored against Carter Hart and David Perron added an empty-ntter to help St. Louis climb out of the Western Conference cellar.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Green Bay Packers have found their new head coach. A person familiar with the decision says Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur has accepted Green Bay's offer to become the next head coach of the Packers.
     LaFleur would replace Mike McCarthy, who was fired during the season after a stunning home loss to Arizona. LaFleur was offensive coordinator with the Rams in 2017, leading a group that paced the NFL in scoring was 10th in total offense.
     Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin went 2-2 to close out the season as the Packers failed to reach the playoffs for the second straight year. The 6-9-1 record was also the second straight under .500 for the storied franchise.
     Also in the NFL:
     - Cody Parkey's missed 43-yard field goal attempt on Sunday has been officially ruled a block by the league. The kick would have given the Chicago Bears an 18-16 win over the Eagles in an NFC wild-card game, but the ball bounced off the upright and hit the crossbar. Video showed Philadelphia's Treyvon Hester tipped the ball.
     - The Chargers have added tight end Hunter Henry to the roster, less than eight months after he suffered a knee injury during an offseason workout. The team's second-round pick in 2016 tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee while running a route during a non-contact drill on May 22, the first day of organized team activities. He returned to practice on Dec. 17 and took part in team drills last week as the Chargers prepared for their AFC wild-card game at Baltimore.
     - The league has carried over its increase in viewers from the regular season over to the playoffs. The NFL said on Monday that there was an average of 28.4 million viewers for the four wild-card round games, which is a 12 percent increase over last year.
