A note to fans of the liveblog: There have been some problems with the HIO site being a bit slow during games this season due to high traffic. The Gazette and our HIO technical staff are aware of the problem and we’re working on a solution to fix it.
There were 38 seconds left in overtime when Andrei Markov scored on a Canadiens power-play to secure a hard-fought 4-3 win.
The Canadiuens had blown a 3-1 third-period lead.
It was Markov’s fourth goal of the young season.
The Devils came into the Bell Centre as the only undefeated team in the Eastern Conference.
Martin Brodeur had given up only three goals through his first three starts.
What a difference a year makes:
It took the Canadiens 10 starts to secure their third win last season.
