The Montreal Canadiens showed some fight last night and put together a nice come from behind victory.
After giving up the first goal late in the first period, it seemed like one of those games where even if the Habs were the better team on the ice the Edmonton Oilers would sneak away with the win.
However that changed as the Habs put together a comeback which eventually saw the game go into overtime.
It was scary as the Habs still hadn't won a game in overtime this season but the new guy stepped up and stepped up big.
Eric Staal scored the overtime winner and set a new franchise mark in the process.
Staal became the first player in franchise history to score an overtime winner in his debut with the team.
He became only the 10th player to do so in the NHL since the 1983-84 season which is when OT was introduced.
Quite the debut for the 36 year old.
