Saturday night's tilt between the Montreal Canadiens and Pittsburgh Penguins at the Bell Centre had more back-and-forth action than a ping pong match.
In what was a thrilling end-to-end affair with plenty of lead changes, ties, and momentum swings, Brandon Sutter provided the overtime heroics to guide Pittsburgh to a 7-6 victory
The Habs were down 4-2 midway through the second period when Brian Gionta scored his fifth of the year to bring them within one. Then, defenceman P.K. Subban decided he wanted in on the action.
He scored in the last second of the period to even the game at 4-4.
Despite his stat line (six goals against on 39 shots), Penguins goalie Tomas Vokoun still managed to make a couple of nice stops, like this spectacular save late in the second when he sprawled out on the ice and robbed Montreal's Max Pacioretty.
There was no shortage of energy in the third period either. The teams scored two goals apiece in the frame to send the game into overtime, when Sutter deposited his sixth goal of the year, shown here below:
