Newcomers look good, but Canadiens fall 5-4 to Leafs in OT
|Montreal Gazette 13 Jan 2021 at 22:53|
Morgan Rielly scored at 3:24 of overtime to give the hometown Maple Leafs a come-from-behind 5-4 win over the Canadiens Tuesday night in an entertaining start to play in the new all-Canadian North Division.
The Canadiens had taken a 4-3 lead early in the third period when Josh Anderson used his speed to score his second goal of the game. Anderson, who was one of Marc Bergevin’s key off-season acquisitions, carried the puck into the Toronto zone and skated around John Tavares and he slipped the puck under Frederik Andersen’s arm.
