MONTREAL (AP) -- David Desharnais scored in regulation and in a shootout, lifting the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night.
Desharnais had the only goal in the shootout, and Canadiens goalie Carey Price stopped all three Ottawa attempts.
Erik Cole also scored for Montreal (28-32-11), 3-0-1 in its last four games. The Canadiens are 3-0-1 against the Senators this season, and will face them again in Ottawa on Friday.
Colin Greening and Erik Karlsson had goals for the Senators (36-25-10), who are one point behind Northeast Division-leading Boston. The Bruins have two games in hand.
