Desharnais Pots Winner, Vancouver Now 0-6 in OT

The Vancouver Canucks blew a 3-0 lead at the Molson Centre on Monday night, and by the time regulation had ended they must have been expecting exactly what they got: A sixth consecutive overtime loss to start the season.

“I think they had a bad change and we ended up with a 3-on-2,” said game-winning goal scorer David Desharnais, according to the Montreal Gazette. “It’s not the best situation in overtime but I knew if I got the puck, I had a good chance to score.”

"If we play like this we'll get our wins for sure," said Vancouver's Daniel Sedin. "It hurts, but like I said, we'll build on this and get better."

"It just seems that we're getting caught," said Canucks' coach Willie Desjardins of his team's OT troubles. "We had a great chance and we missed the net. It went around the other way and they got a three-on-two out of it. We score on that other one, we're all happy. We didn't, and we're certainly disapointed again."

Montreal improves to 14-3-2 with the win. Vancouver drops to 7-6-6 with the loss.
