Then, midway through overtime, Bergeron got a pass in the slot from Tomas Plekanec, shifted the puck to his backhand and put it in the goal as he crashed into Hedberg and dislodged the net. The play was upheld after a video review, giving Montreal the win.
Jaroslav Halak stopped 47 shots for the Canadiens, while Plekanec had a goal and three assists and Andrei Kostitsyn also scored.
Nik Antropov registered two goals for the Thrashers.
