Canadiens win again in OT, Rangers down Flyers
The Montreal Canadiens were winners in overtime against the Dallas Stars, while the New York Rangers trumped the Philadelphia Flyers.
Max Pacioretty scored the winner as the Canadiens edged the Stars 4-3 in OT in the NHL on Wednesday.
The Rangers accounted for the Flyers 5-2 thanks to Henrik Lundqvist.
There were also wins for the Calgary Flames and the Vancouver Canucks.
CANADIENS - THE OVERTIME SPECIALISTS
Montreal's last five games have been decided in the additional time.
And the Canadiens claimed back-to-back wins in OT thanks to Pacioretty's strike 19 seconds into the period.
The Canadiens improved to 5-6 in overtime this season.
LUNDQVIST INSPIRES RANGERS
The Rangers used 30 saves from Lundqvist to see off the Flyers.
After conceding four goals to the Buffalo Sabres, the Rangers were a lot better in defence as the New York franchise won for the fourth time in five games.
MONTREAL WIN LATE... AGAIN!
