MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens looked to be in trouble when goaltender Carey Price got injured just after helping Canada win gold at the Sochi Olympics. But back-up Peter Budaj has put up two wins and an overtime loss while starting three games in four nights since Price went down with a suspected groin injury. Budaj was sharp when he needed to be as the Canadiens bounced back after blowing a third-period lead to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 on Max Paciorettys second goal of the game, 3:28 into overtime on Saturday night. "Hes been unbelievable" U.S. Olympian Pacioretty said of Budaj, who played for Slovakia at the Winter Games. "Hes kept us in all three games hes played and hes made key saves at key moments. "Thats probably the most important thing a goalie can do. Hes one of the hardest working goalies Ive ever seen and its good to see him get rewarded." Alex Galchenyuk scored in the first period and P.K. Subban tied the game and forced OT with a power-play goal at 10:52 of the third frame for Montreal (34-21-7), which is 7-1-2 in its last 10 games. James van Riemsdyk had two and Phil Kessel also scored for the Leafs (32-22-8), who were coming off an overtime loss to the Islanders in New York in their first post-Olympic action on Thursday night. Budaj, now 4-1-0 against Toronto in his career, made 22 saves for the win after backstopping Montreal to a 6-5 OT decision Thursday in Pittsburgh and a 2-1 OT loss to Detroit on Wednesday. He may face even tougher action if he continues to get the starts as the Canadiens leave Sunday on a four-game West Coast road trip. Price is listed as day to day and may be able to return during the trip. Against the Leafs, Budaj and the Canadiens were on a roller coaster as Montreal went up 2-0, but then saw Toronto roar back to take the lead, only for Subban to tie the game. Along the way were unusual penalties, including two delay of game calls against the Leafs and one against Budaj. Paciorettys game-winner, when he beat Jonathan Bernier with a high shot from close range that gave Andrei Markov his third assist of the night, came after Bernier slid well out of his net and was called for a delay as he smothered the puck with his glove. Toronto had started overtime shorthanded when Kessel was called for flipping the puck over the glass. Leafs captain Dion Paneuf would not pin the loss on the officials. "Im not going to stand here and say the calls were right, wrong or indifferent," he said. "If you start complaining about that, thats an excuse. "We showed a lot to come back. JVR (van Riemsdyk) made an unbelievable individual effort and Phil had a great shot, but our team overall, we fought back. We got a point. Were disappointed we didnt get another one, but we did a lot of good things." There were plenty of Leafs fans at Bell Centre, but the atmosphere didnt peak until the third period. It took the Leafs until 14:38 of the first frame to get their first shot on goal, but they held Montreal to a 2-1 first period lead. Galchenyuk put a spin-around shot from the slot past Bernier 12:38 in and Pacioretty scored on a backhander at 14:02. After Joffrey Lupul hit a post, Kessel slipped a pass that van Riemsdyk deflected at the net, only to see it go in off Budaj at 17:34. The third period saw van Riemsdyk get his second goal of the game on a short-handed breakaway at 5:28. Then Tyler Bozak snuck a pass through traffic that sent Kessel in on a breakaway to beat Budaj at 7:43. "Bozak made a spin-around, behind-the-back pass and it went through two skates, a couple of sticks and ends up right on Kessels stick for a breakaway," said Pacioretty. "I was right there with Kessel but I didnt see the puck coming until the last second." Montreal coach Michel Therrien called a time out to settle his players and it seemed to work as Subban tied the game to force overtime. "We got on our heels after (Torontos) third goal, and we just needed to calm down," said Therrien. "I felt the bench was really down and I just wanted to say there was still a lot of hockey to be played." The Canadiens and Leafs have split their four meetings this season, with their last regular season game set for March 22 in Toronto. The Leafs return home to face Columbus on Monday night with their top line still hot. In their past seven games, Kessel has six goals and eight assists, while van Riemsdyk has five goals and six assists. The Leafs are 6-1-1 in their last eight games. Five of van Riemsdyks 26 goals this season have come against Montreal.

TORONTO -- Phil Kessel was his usual subdued self in a rare post-game scrum following a four point night Saturday. Kessel scored a hat trick, including the game winner, and set up Tyler Bozak as Toronto doubled up the Ottawa Senators 6-3. "It was a big win for us obviously and the fans were good and we found a way," said Kessel, who last had a four point night in Edmonton on Oct. 29. "Ive had chances in a couple games before and obviously they went in tonight." As for how he plans on celebrating his second hat trick of the season, Kessel said, "Go home and hang out." Bozak, who also shares an apartment in Toronto with Kessel, was shocked to see the forward talking to the media post-game. "Its pretty funny, surprised he talked to you guys today. Mustve had a good night I guess," joked Bozak. "Hes always played well since hes been here. Hes always put up points and done great things for our team, but Ive been starting to get some points now with him and thats been fun." Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul had the other goals for the Leafs (30-21-6), who have won six straight at Air Canada Centre - their longest stretch since winning 10 in a row to conclude the 2006-07 season. Chris Neil scored twice and set up Colin Greening for the Senators (24-21-10), who have lost all three meetings between the Ontario rivals. It was Neils second career three-point game with his last one coming April 6, 2010 against Florida. Craig Anderson made 30 saves for Ottawa while Jonathan Bernier made 23 saves for the Leafs in the win. Bozak fed Kessel in front at 14:01 of the third period for his third goal of the night and 30th of the season to give the Leafs a 4-3 lead. The goal leaves Kessel alone in second among NHL goal scorers. Kessels first hat trick of the season came Oct. 22 against the Anaheim Ducks. "His skating always stands out and his shot on the second goal," said Lupul of Kessels play. "But you know when hes really playing well cause of how hes competing on pucks down low in the offensive end, turning his back, protecting the puck. Hes been doing that for a while now." Bozak then added an insurance marker at 18:27, one timing a Kessel feed past Anderson for his 11th of the season. Kadri added an empty netter with 28 seconds remaining. Kessel gave Toronto its first lead of the game at 7:34 of the third period on a power play, beating Anderson top corner with a wrist shot from the top of the face-off circle for his 29th of the season. Cody Franson picked up his 100th career assist on the goal. "I think with Phil, hes been classified as this one type of player and we think that hes got more of an all-round ability too," said Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. "He can distribute the puck, he can pass the puck and he can find people. He can do a lot more things than just shoot." Torontos lead was short-lived as less than two minutes later, Neil tied it 3-3 at 9:06 jamming home a loose puck. The play was reviewed before it was determined the puck just inched over the goal line for Neils eighth of the season. Ottawa had a 2-0 lead midway through the second period and had an excellent chance take a three-goal lead near the 11 minute mark as Erik Karlsson beat Beernier with a shot glove-side, but hit the post.dddddddddddd "I felt we played hard. We gave up some chances in the second, but I thought we settled it down there in the third and got back after them," said Neil, who snapped a 12-game goalless drought in the loss. "I dont think its a 6-3 hockey game, thats for sure. It was pretty close back and forth." Toronto cut Ottawas lead in half two minutes later as Kessel put home a James van Riemsdyk feed. The Leafs completed the comeback at 14:39 of the middle frame on a questionable play. Kadri hit Senators defenceman Cody Ceci from behind and then centred the loose puck to Lupul for his 17th. Despite the Ottawa protest and the referees discussing amongst themselves, there was no penalty on the play. "He was actually looking up, looking up ice I think from what I remember when I was kind of engaging him," said Kadri. "I think he turned to just give himself a little more room at that point Im just fully committed to the hit and I just finished my check. "To be honest, I did let up a little bit and the puck was laying there and I just put it in front." Added Ceci: "I just kind of showed my back a bit hoping hed slow up and ended up face first in the boards and then they scored right on the play. It was a tough play, tough play for me. It was unfortunate I didnt get a call on the play and they ended up tying the game with that." As for the non-call, Ceci said he was surprised. "I guess I couldve stayed down a little longer," he said. "But I just tried to get up as fast as I could to continue to play, and they end up scoring right after that. I just had to skate off and just kind of shocked that nothing came of it." Ottawa took a 2-0 lead at 6:46 of the middle frame as Greening finished off a 2-on-1 feed from Neil for his fifth of the season. Toronto had back-to-back first period power play opportunities courtesy of consecutive Cory Conacher minor penalties, but had just two shots to show for it. Neil opened the scoring at 19:07 of the first using Leafs defenceman Morgan Rielly as a screen and beating Bernier glove-side for his seventh of the season and first in 12 games. Ottawa continues its three-game road trip Monday in Pittsburgh before concluding it in St. Louis on Tuesday. Toronto heads out on its final road trip prior to the Olympic break visiting Florida on Tuesday and Tampa Bay on Thursday.
