Pacioretty scores in OT, Price makes 21 saves in Canadiens' 1-0 win over Islanders

UNIONDALE, N.Y. - Max Pacioretty scored 1:51 into overtime and Carey Price made 21 saves for his 21st NHL shutout as the Montreal Canadiens beat the New York Islanders 1-0 Saturday night.

Pacioretty took a short feed in front from David Desharnais and shoved a shot past Evgeni Nabokov for his 12th goal. Nabokov stopped 24 shots and was the hard-luck loser as he came back from injury.

It was Price's second shutout this season for the Canadiens, who snapped a two-game skid and improved to 10-2-1 in their last 13. They have scored only two goals in the past three games.

New York (9-19-6) returned from a 1-4 trip and lost for the 12th time in 13 games (1-9-3). The Islanders are 0-16-4 when they score fewer than three goals.
