Desharnais Scores in OT to Lift Canadiens Past Canucks
MONTREAL (AP) — David Desharnais scored 3:25 into overtime to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night.
Desharnais completed a tic-tac-toe play with P.K. Subban and Tomas Fleischmann on a rush with a one-timer from the right side.
Fleischmann, playing his 600th NHL game, beat Jacob Markstrom on a rush down the right side to tie the score with 3:08 left in the third period and complete a three-goal comeback by Montreal.
Adam Cracknell and Jared McCann scored in the first period and Daniel Sedin had a power-play goal early in the second for the Canucks, who fell to 1-3-2 on a seven-game road trip that ends at Winnipeg on Wednesday night.
Lars Eller and Max Pacioretty also scored for Montreal, which is 5-3-2 since Vancouver ended the Canadiens' season-opening nine-game winning streak on Oct. 27.
