Price, Canadiens clip Devils in OT

(TSX / STATS) -- MONTREAL -- The New Jersey Devils flew into the Bell Centre on Thursday night still riding high from snapping the Los Angeles Kings' eight-game winning streak earlier in the week. The Devils were unable to carry some of that momentum into Montreal.

Carey Price made 31 saves and Tomas Plekanec scored the game-winning goal in overtime, lifting the Canadiens to a 2-1 win over the Devils (17-10-4). Montreal (14-14-4) snapped a three-game losing streak in the process, earning its first victory since a 10-1 rout of the Detroit Red Wings on Dec. 2.

"We really needed those two points," Plekanec said after the win. "To make sure we leave for that road trip on a positive note."
