Recap: Calgary vs. Montreal

Calgary, AB ( - Pierre-Alexandre Parenteau scored the lone goal of the shootout to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday.

Parenteau, Montreal's third shooter, skated in with his head up all the way and beat Jonas Hiller stick side with a wrist shot for the win.

"We're showing that we can come back and don't get discouraged if we don't get the first goal," said Parenteau.

Tom Gilbert scored in regulation and Carey Price was spectacular in net, making 37 saves for Montreal, which ended a seven-game losing streak to the Flames in Calgary.

Mark Giordano supplied Calgary's lone goal and Hiller stopped 18-of-19 shots in defeat.

"We won the puck. We just couldn't capitalize on a couple of good scoring chances," said Flames coach Bob Hartley. "This was one of our fastest games we've played all year. The pace was just unbelievable. From the bench I thought it was a great game to watch."

After a scoreless first period, both teams lit the lamp in the second.

Giordano stepped up into the slot and wristed a shot over the glove of Price for a 1-0 Calgary lead 2:09 into the middle stanza.

Just over 10 minutes later, Rene Bourque sent the puck over to the right boards, where Gilbert fired a shot off the far post and into the net to tie it up.

Brendan Gallagher forced a turnover in the defensive zone early in the third and moved in on a breakaway with Max Pacioretty. Hiller came up strong by keeping the puck out after Pacioretty lost control, then denying Gallagher's rebound try.

In overtime, Price got enough of Giordano's shot from the slot with his glove and the Flames fended off a late Montreal surge to force a shootout.
