Alfredsson's Shootout Goal Lifts Senators to 3-2 Win over Slumping Habs: Shootout Goal Lifts Sens 3-2 over Habs


Beacon, Bill, The Canadian Press


MONTREAL - The Montreal Canadiens tried hard, but nothing stops the streaking Ottawa Senators these days.

After Montreal's Max Pacioretty forced overtime with 39 seconds left in regulation time, Ottawa captain Daniel Alfredsson got the only goal in a shootout as the Senators pulled out a 3-2 victory on Saturday night.

After Tomas Plekanec put them ahead in the opening minute of the third period on a shorthanded breakaway, the Canadiens looked scrambly and nervous as Ottawa roared back with a pair of goals.

''When we get the lead we need to play the same way that got us the lead,'' said price. ''Playing on the forecheck is our strength.

''It's a tentative time too. …
