Canadiens top Panthers in shootout

Sep 29, 2008 - 2:27 AM MONTREAL (Ticker) -- Alexei Kovalev tallied the only goal in the shootout as the Montreal Canadiens captured a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers in a preseason meeting on Sunday.

After the first five shooters were denied, Kovalev skated in on Tomas Vokoun and lifted a backhander past Florida's goaltender to give the Canadiens the victory.

Florida jumped out in front 2-0 on an unassisted tally by Anthony Stewart 3:12 into the opening period and a goal from Nathan Horton with 15:37 left in the second session.

Stewart snapped a wrist shot past Carey Price and Horton one-timed a rebound from the left face-off circle, beating Price to the glove side.

Horton had a chance to extend the lead to three after he was awarded a penalty shot when P.K. Subban took him down on a breakaway, but Price was up to the task and kept the score at 2-0.

Montreal scored on a pair of power-play goals in the second period to tie game. Vokoun stopped a backhander by Tomas Plekanec but was unable to control the rebound and Andrei Kostitsyn deposited the loose puck for Montreal's first goal of the night with 9:03 left in the period.

Plekanec also assisted on the Canadiens' second goal as he found Yannick Weber at the right point and the defenseman blasted a shot to the top right corner, beating Vokoun 14:22 into the period and knotting the game at 2-2.

Price made 36 saves while Vokoun turned away 33.
