Plekanec, Canadiens top Devils 2-1 in OT to end 3-game slide

MONTREAL (AP) A slick pass by Charles Hudon turned into a perfect opportunity for Tomas Plekanec in overtime.

Plekanec scored 1:52 into the extra period off a highlight-reel feed from Hudon, and the Montreal Canadiens beat the New Jersey Devils 2-1 on Thursday night to snap a three-game slide.

"From the start of the game, (coach Claude Julien) asked us to win the battles along the boards," said Hudon, who has 13 points this season. "I saw three guys coming towards me and I knew I couldn't lose the puck. I was pretty sure Plekanec was in the slot, and once he got the puck, I knew the game was over."
