Canadiens cap incredible comeback with last-second tying goal, OT win over Ottawa

The skinny: Francis Bouillon scored his first goal of the season at 1:26 of overtime to give the Canadiens an improbable 5-4 win over the Ottawa Senators Saturday night at the Bell Centre.

WATCH: Canadiens come back, score with 0.3 left

The Ottawa Senators put it on cruise control up 4-1 late in the third period and that turned out to be a very bad idea.

The goal was reviewed and upheld, so the two teams went to overtime. In overtime, things got worse for the Senators...

Bouillon back?

As per RDS during the intermission this evening, the Canadiens are currently working on an extension for defenceman Francis Bouillon. This may come as a surprise to many, as Boullon is seen as a depth player on the Habs, but he's a fan favourite, a hard worker, and never complains about his role. I suspect Bergevin is approaching this with the understanding Bouillon may be...

Bouillon’s stability boosts defense’s consistency

Bouillon's Return Solidified Predators Defense

The Preds even started three rookies on defense on a couple of occasions.In his first outing...
