Brady Tkachuk did everything he might to lock down two points for Ottawa on Tuesday night. Murray had stopped Corey Perry and Jonathan Drouin at the other end as Ottawa(6-14-1)won for the 4th time in six video games. Ottawa outshot Montreal 39-36. Tkachuk pulled Ottawa even with a softie less than two minutes later. Ottawa will continue its five-game homestand on Thursday against Calgary.
A couple broke teeth, 2 objectives, a battle, four shots, and 18-plus minutes of quality ice time.
Ottawa goalie Matt Murray did his part with two shootout conserves and Norris beat Carey Price to seal a wild 5-4 win in a rollicking affair at the Canadian Tire Centre.
"It's got to be among the crazier video games to have been a part of," Tkachuk said. "It was simply a lot going on. I'm fired up about how I'm going to feel tomorrow morning."
Stützle displayed his slick hands before snapping the puck past Price. Norris can be found in from a different angle and found the leading corner to end the video game.
