Tavares' 2nd goal lifts Islanders past Canadiens 5-4 in OT

MONTREAL (AP) John Tavares got a second chance in overtime and made the most of it.

The Islanders' captain was robbed on a spectacular save by Carey Price but got the puck back and made no mistake to give New York a 5-4 victory despite being outshot 56-24 by the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night.

"That first one was a heck of a save," Tavares said of a close-range shot that Price swung out a leg to stop. "He's arguably the best goalie in the league.
