UNIONDALE, N.Y., Dec. 14 (UPI) -- Max Pacioretty's score off a David Desharnais pass 1:51 into overtime Saturday lifted the Montreal Canadiens to a 1-0 decision over the New York Islanders.

On the game-winning play, Desharnais got control of the puck to the left of the net. He skated behind the cage, circled to the front and slid a pass to a wide-open Pacioretty.

The Habs' left wing got a stick on it and popped it past New York's Evgeni Nabokov for the game's only goal.

Carey Price finished with a 21-save shutout as Montreal ended a two-game losing streak.

Nabokov also played well in his return from an 11-game injury absence, stopping 24-of-25 shots as the Islanders fell for the 12th time in 13 games.
