Overtime Hockey Night
OTTAWA – SPORTS – Brady Tkachuk scored 3:30 into overtime leading the Ottawa Senators a 3-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.
Tkachuk, who also had an assist, skated above the goal line and attempted a pass to Erik Brannstrom, but the puck hit the skate of Canadiens defenseman Alexander Romanov and bounced back to Tkachuk for a shot from the slot.
“Our mentality in overtime is to win this and to not sit back,” says Ottawa coach D.J. Smith, “And certainly, we did that. You can see some of the young kids start to get confidence, start to be a lot better with the puck. A year ago in overtime, we would just be hanging on, and I just thought we were attacking. We were dangerous.”
VANCOUVER – SPORTS – Pierre-Luc Dubois scored his second goal 27 seconds into overtime to give the Winnipeg Jets a 4-3 win against the Vancouver Canucks on Sunday.
After missing the previous four games with a lower-body injury, Dubois scored his first goal off a cross-ice pass from Blake Wheeler at 14:37 of the second period to make it 2-1. He skated around forward Brock Boeser in overtime before shooting over goalie Braden Holtby’s blocker from the bottom of the left face-off circle.
