OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — Carey Price made 40 saves and P.K. Subban scored the overtime winner and the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Ottawa Senators 5-4 Thursday night.

Subban scored 23 seconds into the extra period as his shot trickled through Craig Anderson's legs.

Tomas Plekanec scored twice and Max Pacioretty and David Desharnais also scored for the Canadiens, who defeated the Senators for the first time this season.

Clarke MacArthur, Erik Karlsson, Bobby Ryan and Kyle Turris scored for Ottawa. Anderson stopped 18 shots.

Trailing 4-3, the Canadiens caught a break on the tying goal midway through the third. Plekanec broke in alone and while Anderson made the initial save, defenseman Jared Cowen watched as the puck went in off his skate.
