CALGARY — Max Domi scored with a shot a blistering 3:52 in overtime Thursday, allowing the Montreal canadiens to win 4-3 to the Calgary Flames.
The men of Claude Julien deserved fifth win in their last six meetings.
Domi got a seventh little drizzle after a brilliant stop of Carey Price, at the expense of Elias Lindholm.
Tired and seeing the defender elite Mark Giordano in front of him, Domi took the easiest option.
“Well honestly, I had absolutely no fuel, said Domi. In the presence of before, we had the same when zoomed. They have had an opportunity, Price has been the stop and the washer is a little aisle towards me.
“I know a little (Giordano). I know how good it is. It is one of the best defenders in the league. I knew that at the end of presence like that, I wasn’t going to happen to the foil. I’ve taken a shot, simply. Luck was on my side.”
Brendan Gallagher, Joel Armia and Nick Suzuki have managed other goals of the CH, while Price made 24 saves.
The Canadian remains in Alberta to face the Oilers in Edmonton on Saturday night.
This will be the third of seven matches in a row abroad, until 31 December. The Habs will also play in Winnipeg, Tampa, Sunrise and Raleigh.
The audience in the Bell Centre is going to find his favorites on 2 January, the face of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Lindholm, Matthew Tkachuk and Oliver Kylington, responded for the Flames, who have lost their last three matches.
Kylington has given advance 3-2 to the Flames with a first goal this season at 6:25 in the third twenty. Johnny Gaudreau came on the right flank. He stopped abruptly to join Kylington, who has hit the target with the aid of a shooting sec.
But 5:33 later, Suzuki has prolonged the suspense by diverting a shot from Nick Cousins. He put an end to a dearth of 12 meetings.
Armia and Gallagher scored in the second third, allowing the Habs to erase a late two-goal.
“It took us a little time to start up, said Julien. We found our legs in the second period. We have much better weathered.”
Armia has leveled the score to 13:11 with a shot of the wrists, from the heart of the enemy. He beat David Rittich short side, earning a 12th goal this season.
Gallagher had reduced the gap to midway of the period, from an angle very limited. Shea Weber has supported the attack. Spinning behind the goal, he was handed over to Gallagher in the corner of the ice, and Alberta has found a way to register a 15th goal. Weber earned a point in a fifth consecutive game.
Tkachuk and Lindholm have scored in the first twenty.
Tkachuk has made the hit of the mouth left after good work by Andrew Mangiapane, at the mouth right. Lindholm has quickly seized a loose puck that he slipped to Tkachuk, who scored at 7:34.
Lindholm has doubled priority, in the digital advantage, at 19:52. Phillip Danault has been punished for tripping Noah Hanifin. Gaudreau made a nice pass cross-sectional Tkachuk, who immediately sent the disk to the mouth right. Lindholm got that first goal in December, eight games.
“This was not our best hockey in the first period, said Price. We are really well grouped by the result.”
The beginning of the game was rather quiet. The first good scoring chance went to the Flames, in the sixth minute of the game. Sean Monahan shot at point-blank range of the enclave, but Price made the stop.
Just prior to that, Joel Armia has just missed a long pass that would have sent Max Domi on a breakaway.
Three minutes before the first intermission, a shot of Suzuki hit the post to the left of Rittich. With 14 minutes left in the middle period, Gallagher also touched the stem, on a rebound.
Victor Mete missed a ninth consecutive game this season, injured his ankle.
Jesperi Kotkaniemi was away for a sixth straight game, the result of a concussion.
