Grand larceny in the desert:
Outplayed for most of the game, Canadiens score three unanswered goals to score an unlikely 4-2 win over a fast, aggressive Phoenix team.
Saku Koivu and Andrei Markov scored on power plays, then Sergei Kostitsyn completed a slick passing passing play with Christopher Higgins to put this one in the W column.
Canadiens had a mere 20 shots, while Carey Price faced a 39-shot bombardment and stopped 37 of them.
Coached by the great pacifist Wayne Gretzky, Coyotes spent the final seconds of the game gooning the Canadiens.
The win puts Canadiens in a tie with Pittsburgh, which lost, atop the Eastern Conference.
Bruins lost as well. And Ottawa is trailing in L.A.
