Alex Galchenyuk scored 1:12 into overtime and the Montreal Canadiens took an important 3-2 win over the New York Rangers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals at Madison Square Garden.

New York had tied the game with 28.1 seconds to play in regulation, but the Canadiens wasted no time in overtime, as Tomas Plekanec skated in through the middle and threw the puck on net from the left circle.

Henrik Lundqvist made a left-pad save on the shot, but the rebound hit off a crashing Galchenyuk in front of the net and went in to end the game.

Montreal had dropped the first two games of this series at home and now trail the best-of-seven set, 2-1, with Game 4 set for Sunday night in New York.
