TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Alexander Radulov scored 51 seconds into overtime to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night.
 
Phillip Danault also scored and Carey Price stopped 21 shots for the Atlantic Division-leading Canadiens.
 
Radulov scored from the right circle on the game-winner.
 
Yanni Gourde scored for the Lightning and Andrei Vasilevskiy had 34 saves.
 
Gourde got a goal in his third straight game, coming on a redirection of Victor Hedman's shot tying it at 1 at 11:38 of the third. The forward has four goals in 17 career games.
 
Danault put a back-hander past Vasilevskiy with 5:36 left in the second to open the scoring after Hedman lost the puck near the Lightning net. Max Pacioretty got his 200th assist with Montreal on Danault's goal.
