MONTREAL, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Tomas Plekanec's wrist shot past Marc-Andre Fleury in the eighth round of a shootout Tuesday lifted the Montreal Canadiens past Pittsburgh 3-2.

Plekanec skated straight in on Fleury and buried a forehand shot high to the glove side that found the upper corner of the net.

Lars Eller and Louis Leblanc scored in regulation. Price made 32 stops for Montreal.

James Neal and Pascal Dupuis found the net for the Penguins.
