Mike Cammalleri scored his third goal of the game in overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 5-4 win over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.

Cammalleri put a wrist shot past Henrik Lundqvist 2:42 in the extra period for his sixth goal of the season to give Montreal its third straight win.

Cammalleri scored his second goal of the game late in the second period as Montreal tallied three times in the middle period to tie it at 4-4.

Cammalleri, who opened the scoring at 4:16 of the first, scored 18:58 into the second to draw the Canadiens even after Matt D'Agostini and Marc-Andre Bergeron scored earlier in the period.

Jaroslav Halak made his third straight start and stopped 23 shots.

Marian Gaborik scored his eighth goal midway through the second to put New York up 4-2 after he assisted on Matt Gilroy's score late in the first.

Gilroy got his second of the season with 57 seconds left in the first as the Rangers scored three unanswered goals to take a 3-1 lead after Artem Anisimov and Ales Kotalik scored earlier in the period.
