CAUFIELD MAKES HABS' HISTORY WITH HIS FIRST NHL GOAL

MAY 1, 2021  (22H02)      COOPER GODIN
He finally did it. Montreal Canadiens forward Cole Caufield scored his first National Hockey League goal on Saturday night to cap off the Habs' second comeback win in 24 hours.

The Ottawa Senators took a 2-0 lead early in the third period before the Canadiens began their comeback. Jeff Petry got the Habs on the board, followed by Tyler Toffoli who got his 27th of the season on the powerplay with less than six minutes remaining.

Cue the three-on-three overtime and a two on one with Jeff Petry and Cole Caufield. Petry slid the puck cross-crease to Caufield who fired home his first NHL goal to give the Canadiens arguably their biggest, and most important win this season. Caufield is the first Montreal player since 1949 to get an OT winner on his very first goal.


Montreal now only sits two points back of Winnipeg for third place in the Scotia North division, and have an eight-point lead for the fourth and final playoff spot in the division.

The Habs will be back in action on Monday night when they take on Toronto and begin a week where they have four games in six days.
