The Montreal Canadiens have ended their two game losing streak as they edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 yesterday evening.
Once again, Montreal got away with the win because of their power play production. Alex Kovalev scored twice during the man advantage while Guillaume Latendresse scored the other one for Montreal. Latendresse was replacing Michael Ryder on the first offensive line along with Saku Koivu and Chris Higgins. Andrei Kostitsyn registered the winning goal during the shootout session.
As they were leading 3-2 late in the game, the Habs have seen Mats Sundin tie the game up at 3-3 with only 18 seconds to go to the match. Nobody scored during the overtime period. Carey Price did very well in net once again especially during the first period. The Leafs registered a total of 18 shots on Price during the first period alone. Price made 46 saves during the game.
The Habs will travel to New-Jersey friday to face the Devils.
