Phillip Danault had a career night.
Late in the third period, Danault made a great play to feed Brendan Gallagher – !!!! – for the goal that tied the game at 2-2.
Then in OT, Danault beat James Reimer to win the game.
Max Pacioretty’s power-play goal tied the game at 1-1 5:45 into the second period.
But Vincent Trocheck’s power-play goal restored Florida’s lead.
Fourteen minutes into the first period, Jason Demers’s anodyne 50-footer was stopped by Montoya but bounced in off Shea Weber’s lower body.
Shots were 41-33 for the Canadiens.
