On to OT after Phillip Danault’s first career hat trick.
Brandon Pirri got in alone and potted his second of the game, 14 minutes into the second period.
Jonathan Marchessault had given the home team a lead 4:51 into the period. Then Danault’s not-quite-shoulder-high redirection of a Jordie Benn drive tied it at 2-2.
Danault one-timed a Brendan Gallagher feed to open the scoring, 3:41 into the game. The Canadiens dominated the early shot clock, but Marc-Andre Fleury made great stops. And Pirri’s first tied it up at 16:24.
Shots are 46-25 for the guys in white.
