VIDEO: Canadiens erase 4-1 deficit, tie game on buzzer-beater
David Desharnais scored a dramatic buzzer-beating game-tying goal to help the Canadiens erase a 4-1 deficit against the Ottawa Senators. The Habs won in overtime.
The Montreal Canadiens looked dead in the water with eight minutes to go in regulation Saturday night against the Ottawa Senators, while trailing 4-1. Looks can be deceiving.
The Habs erupted for three goals in the final 3:22 of regulation. If that wasn’t dramatic enough, David Desharnais scored the game-tying goal with 0.3 seconds remaining in regulation.
The buzzer actually sounded, but after video review, it was determined Desharnais' shot crossed the goal line ahead of it.
As the great Yogi Berra once said, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”
It was over when Francis Bouillon put home the overtime game-winning goal, capping the Habs dramatic regulation comeback with a stunning 5-4 win.
It was a huge victory for Montreal, not just in the way they did it either. It ended a three-game skid and helped the club keep pace in the Atlantic Division with the third-place Tampa Bay Lightning who also won Saturday.
With late-game heroics like this, it must be March.
