OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Dale Weise's first goal of the playoffs sent the game to overtime. His second sent the Montreal Canadiens to a victory - and a commanding series lead.
Weise scored the tying goal late in the third period and then won it 8:47 into overtime, leading the Canadiens past the Ottawa Senators 2-1 on Sunday night in their first-round playoff series.
"I don't know if you can call me (clutch) yet," said Weise, who also had an overtime winner in the playoffs last year against Tampa Bay. "I thought I had some good chances early in the series and just couldn't put them in - a couple of 2-on-1s and hit posts. I don't know what it is, just every game gets so intense, you're so focused."
