Canadiens' Cole Caufield (22) and New Jersey Devils' Tomas Tatar (90) battle for the puck at the Prudential Center on Sunday, March 27, 2022, in Newark, N.J.

The wild shootout that produced seven goals followed a wild overtime period in which the Canadiens’ Mike Hoffman and the Devils’ Nico Hischier and Jesper Bratt hit posts.

The Canadiens pulled goaltender Sam Montembeault and Rem Pitlick scored with 36 seconds to tie the game at 2-2. Christian Dvorak won a faceoff in the offensive zone and, after Cole Caufield got a shot to the net, Dvorak was front to make a blind back pass to set up Pitlick.

This was the second game in a back-to-back situation for the Canadiens, who defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-2 Saturday at the Bell Centre. Paul Byron scored with 2:28 remaining in regulation time to snap a 2-2 tie and Jake Allen made a career-high 49 saves as Montreal boosted its season record against Toronto to 2-0.
