Recap: NY Islanders vs. Montreal

Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Max Pacioretty scored 1:51 into overtime to lift the Montreal Canadiens over the New York Islanders, 1-0, Nassau Coliseum.

During the extra period, David Desharnais tracked down a loose puck for Montreal behind the net and circled to the front. Once he reached the right circle, he dished a pass to a streaking Pacioretty, who tapped the puck past Evgeni Nabokov for the game-winner.

"We shut it down pretty well. Both goalies were amazing, but in a game like that you just need one bounce and that is just what we got," said Pacioretty.

Carey Price turned aside all 21 shots to earn his second shutout of the season. Montreal snapped a two-game skid with the victory.

Nabokov allowed one goal on 25 shots in his first game back after suffering a groin injury in a 5-4 shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings on Nov. 16.

The Islanders have lost two straight games and 12 of their last 13.

"When you come back from a long road trip it is tough. The crowd was terrific, it helped us out -- especially in the first period. Defensively we did a lot of good things, but we struggled offensively," said Islanders coach Jack Capuano.

Nabokov made a great glove save to keep it a scoreless game with less than a minute in regulation. He moved up to the top of his crease and threw his glove out to snag a P.K. Subban slapshot from the point.

Montreal's George Parros did not return to the game after getting injured in a first-period fight with Eric Boulton.
