Brandon Sutter scored his second goal of the game 52 seconds into overtime to give the Pittsburgh Penguins a 7-6 Saturday night at the Bell Centre in a free-wheeling game which goaltenders Carey Price and Tomas Vokoun will be happy to forget.
"The best thing I can say about this game is that we came back and got a point," said Canadiens coach Michel Therrien. "This was a great game for the fans but this is the reason why coaches get gray hair."
The lead changed hands five times including twice in the third period. David Desharnais put the Canadiens ahead 5-4 but Chris Kunitz tied it with his second goal of the game and Sidney Crosby scored at 10:24 to put the Penguins on top at 10:24.
"We showed character by coming back but that's not the way we want to play," said Desharnais. "We don't want to play a wide-open game like that but we fell behind by two goals asnd we had to open things up."
But Pittsburgh wasn't able to enjoy the lead for long because Brian Gionta scored his second goal of the game 30 later seconds to knot the score for the fifth time.
P.K. Subban scored with 7-10ths of a second remaining in the second period to pull the Canadiens even at 4-4. Brendan Gallagher took his own rebound behind the net and found Subban in front.
