Canadiens 3, Senators 2, SO

Associated Press  |  Last updated March 14, 2012
David Desharnais scored in regulation and in a shootout, lifting the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. Desharnais had the only goal in the shootout, and Canadiens goalie Carey Price stopped all three Ottawa attempts. Erik Cole also scored for Montreal (28-32-11), 3-0-1 in its last four games. The Canadiens are 3-0-1 against the Senators this season, and will face them again in Ottawa on Friday. Colin Greening and Erik Karlsson had goals for the Senators (36-25-10), who are one point behind Northeast Division-leading Boston. The Bruins have two games in hand. Montreal wore its white ''away'' jerseys to allow the Senators to don their black throwback jerseys. Ottawa outshot Montreal 37-26, but few big saves were needed at either end. The Canadiens took the lead 24 seconds into the third period when Desharnais was left alone on the doorstep and deflecting P.K. Subban's shot past Ben Bishop. Karlsson tied it at 11:01 when he threaded his 19th goal of the season through traffic and past Price from the top of the right circle. It was Karlsson's third goal in two games. Montreal took a 1-0 lead when Cole broke down the right side and fought off a check from Karlsson to put in his own rebound at 13:34. Cole got laughs from the crowd as he celebrated his fourth goal in three games by giving a high-five to referee Greg Kimmerly. Only 26 seconds later, Greening was at the side of the net and finished a three-way play with Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza to tie the game. The crowd gave a warm ovation to defenseman Andrei Markov for his first shift on home ice in more than a year. Markov missed most of the last two seasons because of knee problems. NOTES: Montreal was without Alexei Emelin (upper body) and Scott Gomez (concussion). Tomas Kaberle didn't play because his girlfriend gave birth. Frederic St. Denis was called up from AHL Hamilton to fill in on defense. ... Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec missed warmups and got to the rink just before the start of the game because of family reasons, the team said. ... Bobby Butler, Zenon Konopka and Matt Carkner didn't dress for Ottawa. ... There were big cheers for a video tribute to former Canadiens captain Saku Koivu, now with Anaheim, who recently played his 1,000th NHL game.
