Sharp's goal at 43 seconds of OT lifts Blackhawks to 3-2 win over Canadiens

CHICAGO - Patrick Sharp set up Marian Hossa's tying goal in the final minute of regulation and then scored the game-winner 43 seconds into overtime to lift the Chicago Blackhawks to a 3-2 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

Jeremy Morin also scored in the Blackhawks' fourth straight win overall, and their first in overtime this season after seven losses.

Sharp scored the winner on a shot from the slot that struck Montreal goalie Peter Budaj, rolled high off his equipment, ticked off the left post and landed in the net.

Hossa had tipped in Sharp's feed from the right corner left to tie the game at 2 with 47.7 seconds left in the third period.

Dale Weise and Francis Bouillon scored for Montreal.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
