Desharnais scores in 3rd period and shootout and Canadiens top Devils 4-3

NEWARK, N.J. - David Desharnais scored the tying goal with 37 seconds left in the third period and added a goal in the shootout and the Montreal Canadiens rallied for a 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday.

Lars Eller also scored in third period and shootout for Montreal, which also beat the Devils in Montreal on Monday night.

Rookie Reid Boucher, making his NHL debut, scored for the Devils in the shootout, breaking a string of 20 straight missed chances by the Devils, who are 0-5 in shootouts this season.

Patrik Elias' unassisted goal at 18:54 had given the Devils a 3-2 edge, but Desharnais redirected a slap shot by Brian Gionta to score at 19:23 for Montreal and force overtime.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
