Trailing 3-1 against Martin Brodeur in New Jersey, the Canadiens outshoot the Devils20-3 and get third period goals from Bryan Smolinski (his second of the game), Saku Koivu and – finally – Christopher Higgins to win their 17th – and sweetest – road game of the season.
Shots on the game: 32-13
In New Jersey.

And what a way to catapult themselves into the Dash for the Cash.
