Montreal 4 - Toronto 3 (SO)
The Montreal Canadiens were trailing 3-1 in the 3rd period at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Bell Centre when Saku Koivu scored twice to even up the score at 3-3. The overtime period didn't solve the tie and Montreal picked up the win in the shootout.
This win is precious to the team because nobody expected the Habs to even up the score among the fans... the crowd was quiet and upset before Koivu lit the lamp twice. Christobal Huet was solid again and kept his team in the game, and eventually picked up the win.
Montreal keeps themselves in 4th position of the Eastern conference.
