NHL: Montreal 2, Chicago 1 (OT)

Jan. 11, 2014 at 10:21 PM

MONTREAL, Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Andrei Markov got his second goal of the game 1:28 into overtime Saturday, elevating the Montreal Canadiens over Chicago 2-1.

The Canadiens turned on the pressure early in the overtime when Tomas Plekanec skated in on a breakaway. Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford made a kick save, but Chicago couldn't clear the zone and Plekanec just missed another chance.

Seconds later, the Habs attacked again and this time notched the game-winner when Markov converted a pass from Max Pacioretty with a shot from the left point.

Carey Price stopped 19-of-20 shots and Montreal picked up a third win in five games.

Marian Hossa got the only goal for the Hawks, who dropped a third straight.

Crawford finished with 36 saves.
