OTTAWA — Peter Regin scored in the fifth round of the shootout and Ben Bishop made 44 saves in regulation and overtime, leading the Senators to a 2-1 win over the Canadiens on Monday night.
Jakob Silfverberg also scored in the shootout for Ottawa, while David Desharnais replied for Montreal.
After Regin gave the Senators the lead in the shootout, Bishop stopped Tomas Plekanec to secure Ottawa's season-high fifth straight win.
Regin had a chance to end the game late in overtime, but his slapshot from the high slot hit the post behind Canadiens goaltender Carey Price, who finished with 23 saves.
Dave Dziurzynski had a goal in regulation for the Senators, while Andrei Markov scored for the Canadiens.
Blackhawks extend streak: Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime as host Chicago improved to 16-0-3 with a 3-2 win over the Oilers, extending its league record for most games without a regulation defeat to start a season.
Game highlights: Phil Kessel, Nikolai Kulemin, Mikhail Grabovski and Jay McClement scored to lead the visiting Maple Leafs past the Flyers 4-2. Ben Scrivens had 23 saves for Toronto, which survived a double-minor against leading scorer James van Riemsdyk in the third period. Van Riemsdyk, who was drafted with the second overall pick in the 2007 draft by the Flyers and played three seasons with them before being traded, was held scoreless in his return to Philadelphia. … Roman Josi scored his second goal 28 seconds into overtime, and the host Predators edged the Stars 5-4 after ending a scoring drought at 133:43. That threatened the franchise record of 176:18, set less than two weeks ago. The action cranked up in the second period with six goals combined, fights, and a high stick by a teammate cutting Nashville captain Shea Weber's face near his nose and drawing blood. The blow dropped Weber to the ice, and he lost his stick.
Jet recovering: Winnipeg defenseman Zach Redmond is in good spirits at a Raleigh, N.C., hospital as he recovers from surgery to repair a skate cut to his right thigh, his family said in a statement. The 24-year-old rookie suffered a gash to his right femoral artery and vein during a practice Thursday.
Around the league: The Capitals re-signed goaltender Braden Holtby and defenseman John Erskine to two-year deals. Holtby, 23, will earn $3.7 million — $1.7 million next season and $2 million in 2014-15. Erskine, 32, will get $3.925 million — $1.925 million next season and $2 million in 2014-15. … The Coyotes signed defenseman David Schlemko, 25, to a two-year extension. … The Red Wings signed defenseman Brian Lashoff, 22, to a three-year, $2.175 million contract.
