Montreal Canadiens backup goalie Peter Budaj was presented with quite a challenge on Tuesday night. He had to come in off the bench to start sudden death overtime in Game 4 against the Ottawa Senators after starter Carey Price was injured at the end of regulation.

That's a brutal situation to be in, and it did not go well for him or the Canadiens as Kyle Turris netted the game-winner early in the overtime period to give the Senators a come-from-behind 3-2 win and a commanding 3-1 lead in the series.

It wasn't the best shot, but in overtime (or at any point in the game, really) there's no such thing as a bad shot on goal.

The Senators trailed 2-0 into the third period but rallied late and sent the game to overtime thanks to a goal from Cory Conacher with less than a minute to play. It made Senators general manager Bryan Murray very excited.
