Ryan, Hiller Lead Ducks To 4-3 Shootout Win In Saku Koivu's Return To Montreal

Montreal, QC (Sports Network) - Bobby Ryan scored the lone goal of the shootout as Anaheim blew a two-goal third-period lead but rebounded to top Montreal, 4-3, at Bell Centre. Ryan began the third and final round by scoring on a low forehander inside the left post. Brian Gionta could have kept the home team alive, but his shot from the right post was smothered by Jonas Hiller to end the game.

Ryan also tallied in regulation as did Cam Fowler and Corey Perry for the Ducks, who have won six of their last eight contests. Hiller won with 37 stops. Saku Koivu returned to Montreal for the first time since leaving as a free agent to Anaheim in 2009, and recorded an assist but committed a late penalty which led to the Habs' tying tally. Max Pacioretty scored a pair for the Canadiens, who rallied to tie the game with two scores in the final 3:40 of regulation but lost for the second time in three games. Mathieu Darche also lit the lamp and Carey Price only stopped 23 shots in defeat.
