CAUFIELD JOINS ELITE COMPANY IN CANADIENS OVERTIME WIN AGAINST TORONTO

MAY 3, 2021  (22H59)      COOPER GODIN
The Canadiens downed the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night by a score of 3-2 in overtime. It was the third win in a row for Montreal, all comeback wins too.

Canadiens rookie Cole Caufield decided to play the role of hero for a second straight game by scoring the overtime winner. Back-to-back overtime wins for Montreal, and Caufield has found himself in some pretty elite company with his two career goals thus far.

According to NHL Public Relations, Caufield joins Albert Hughes (1930) and Brent Seabrook (2005) as the only players to score their first two career goals in overtime. Sportsnet Stats added that Caufield is the only one on the list to score both goals in back-to-back games.



Caufield also became the third rookie in NHL history to score an overtime winner in back-to-back games joining Andrew Cogliano (three straight in March 2008), and Kyle Connor in March 2018.



With the win, Montreal is now tied with the Winnipeg Jets for third in the Scotia North Division with 57 points. The Habs are back in action on Wednesday night when they take on the Ottawa Senators at 7pm ET on Sportsnet.
