The Montreal Canadiens went down to 4-3 loss in OT on home-ice to the New Jersey Devils on Saturday night, so breaking a three-game winning streak.
It should have been four straight winning games having led 3-1 late in the second period, before they took five penalties in the third period. That lack of discipline was eventually to cost them that game.
Montreal’s goals came through Brendan Gallagher, Cale Fleury and Nick Suzuki, with Keith Kinkaid making 39 saves against his former team.
Gallagher has now scored nine goals for the Canadiens this season, while Tomas Tatar has registered 20 points and 13 assists so far.
