Montreal Canadiens Win in Overtime Once Again

Francois GendronSenior Writer INovember 18, 2009

The Montreal Canadiens are still undefeated during extra time this season as they defeated the Carolina Hurricanes by the score of 3-2 after a long shootout session Tuesday evening.

Both teams sent six skaters each to finally end the contest.

Maxim Lapierre's shot made the difference.

As for goaltender Carey Price at the other end, he was perfect during the shootout and made a highlight reel save on Matt Cullen at the end to confirm the victory.

Max Pacioretty and Andrei Kostitsyn both scored for Montreal during regulation. Kostitsyn's goal came with under three minutes to play in the third period, forcing overtime.

Brandon Sutter and Jussi Jokinen scored their goals in a 2:52 span during the second period, giving the Canes a 2-1 lead until the late stages of the game.

The Canadiens have won eight straight games during the overtime/shootout session without any losses this season, tying a NHL regular season record.
