D'Agostini's second goal gives Canadiens OT victory

Sep 22, 2007 - 2:20 AM MONTREAL (Ticker) -- Matt D'Agostini is trying his best to make an impression.

D'Agostini scored his second goal of the game 1:45 into overtime, lifting the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 preseason victory over the New York Islanders on Friday.

A sixth-round pick in 2005, D'Agostini spent last season in the American Hockey League with Hamilton, where he recorded 21 goals and 28 assists in 63 games. The 20-year-old helped Montreal avenge Wednesday's loss to New York, opening the scoring at 6:53 of the first period before coming through in the extra session.

Guillaume Latendresse had given the Canadiens a 2-1 lead with 5 1/2 minutes remaining in the second period, but the Islanders battled back to tie it in third as defenseman Radek Martinek tallied with 5:57 to go.

Tomas Plekanec recorded two assists and Carey Price - the fifth overall pick in 2005 - made 22 saves for Montreal, which went 1-for-5 on the power play.

Jeff Tambellini scored a goal and Josef Vasicek set up two others for the Islanders, who outshot the Canadiens, 24-21.

Mike Morrison allowed two goals on 11 shots for New York before being replaced midway through the second period by Wade Dubielewicz, who made nine saves.
