NHL.com @NHL

PHILADELPHIA - Mathieu Schneider scored on a power play at 3:21 of overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night.

Exactly a minute after Scottie Upshall was sent off for goalie interference, Schneider - acquired from Atlanta to quarterback the power play - scored his seventh goal of the season on a wrist shot from the right circle.

It was Montreal's first goal since it scored three goals in a 2:04 span in the first period.
