Cole Caufield scores his second OT winner, Canadiens edge Leafs

MONTREAL — Cole Caufield scored at 4:43 of overtime as the Montreal Canadiens defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 in a potential North Division playoff preview Monday.

The rookie sniper took a pass from Jeff Petry and wired home his second NHL goal — and second OT winner in as many games.

Tyler Toffoli and Philip Danault scored in regulation for Montreal (24-18-9). Jake Allen made 27 stops for the Canadiens, who entered having won two a in row, including Saturday's dramatic 2-1 overtime triumph at the Bell Centre against the Ottawa Senators when Caufield was also the hero.
