Canadiens beat Golden Knights 3-2 in OT to take 2-1 lead

MONTREAL (AP) Luke Richardson didn't envision his debut as an NHL head coach coming this way.

But he'll take it.

Josh Anderson scored his second goal of the game at 12:53 of overtime and Carey Price made 43 saves as Montreal beat the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 on Friday night for a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup semifinal series hours after learning interim coach Dominique Ducharme tested positive for COVID-19.
