Svechnikov scores in overtime, Carolina beats Montreal 2-1

The Carolina hurricanes championship rings struggled to beat Montreal goaltender Carey Price for 54 minutes.

Price turned away shot after shot, to the point that even Hurricanes coach Rod Brind'Amour thought there was no way his team was going to find the net.

Then, everything changed.

Andrei Svechnikov scored with 1:45 left in overtime as the Hurricanes rallied to beat the Canadiens 2-1 in a matchup with Eastern Conference playoff implications.

Carolina's Trevor van Riemsdyk scored the tying goal with 5:39 remaining, and Svechnikov ended it with a wrist shot through Price's legs in the extra session nhl championship rings for sale.

After Price stopped Carolina's first 36 shots, he allowed two goals on the final four shots he faced.

What went in was van Riemsdyk's wrist shot from the point through traffic that clipped the skate of Montreal Canadiens championship rings for sale defenseman Jordie Benn and found the bottom left corner of the net.

After jumping off the bench on a line change in overtime, Svechnikov took a pass from Jordan Staal, skated down the right side and whipped the puck through Price's legs to end it.

Curtis McElhinney stopped 28 shots for Carolina, which has won six of eight.

With the win, the custom Carolina hurricanes championship rings remained alone in the first wild card spot in the Eastern Conference. Montreal squandered a chance to move into a tie with Carolina with a win.

The Canadiens had other opportunities, too. Jeff Petry hit the post in the first period, and in the second, Tomas Tatar also hit a post. Jesperi Kotkaniemi had a breakaway denied by McElhinney and Nate Thompson's point-blank shot in the crease after a turnover was stuffed by McElhinney, as well.

The Hurricanes finally put the pressure on in the third period, but couldn't solve Price. Sebastain Aho was robbed of two prime scoring chances, and Teravainen couldn't convert a breakaway with just under nine minutes remaining.
