Tomas Plekanek, brilliant all night, scored 45 seconds into the third period to give the Canadiens a 4-2 lead.
Done and dusted, right?
Ryan White’s idiotic double-minor opened the door to a Buffalo goal by Thomas Vanek.
The Buffalo sniper scored again off a wild scramble to tie it 4-4 with two seconds left.
No goals in OT, so on to the season’s first Shootout.
