Francis Bouillon netted the game-wining goal in overtime for the Canadiens.
Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) -
Francis Bouillon scored 1:26 into overtime as the Montreal Canadiens rallied to stun the Ottawa Senators, 5-4, at Bell Centre.
The Canadiens avoided what would have been a season high-tying fourth straight loss in thrilling fashion.
Down 4-1 in the third period, they scored three times in the final 3:22, including David Desharnais' buzzer-beater.
On the game-winner, Max Pacioretty fired a shot from low in the right circle. Ottawa goalie Robin Lehner made the save and felt the puck was covered up. However, the referee didn't blow the play dead and Pacioretty dislodged the puck and Bouillon put it into the open net.
Low-key trade could pay off big for Pens

For a team sitting atop the Eastern Conference standings the Pittsburgh Penguins have certainly flown under the radar in 2013-14.
Unlike last season when the Penguins made a big splash at the trade deadline, Pittsburgh opted to keep a low profile this time around. The Penguins made moves for depth instead, picking up forwards Marcel Goc and Lee Stempniak for a handful of draft picks.
While the moves were categorized as safe at the time, the trade for Stempniak is beginning to look like a stroke of genius by Penguins general manager Ray Shero.
It's obviously been a small sample size for Stempniak, but he has managed to record three assists in his first four games with the Penguins, playing an important role as the right winger on Pittsburgh's top line with superstar centerman Sidney Crosby and left wing Chris Kunitz.
