Brandon Sutter's second goal of the game 52 seconds into overtime lifted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a wild 7-6 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Sutter took a pass from Simon Despres on a rush, stepped around Max Pacioretty, and beat goalie Carey Price with a high shot to help Pittsburgh end a two-game skid and avoid being swept on a three-game road trip.

Matt Cooke and Chris Kunitz, both netted two goals, and Sidney Crosby also scored for Pittsburgh (14-8).

Brian Gionta had a pair of goals, and Brandon Prust, Pacioretty, David Desharnais and P.K. Subban also scored as Montreal (13-4-4) stretched its string of games without a regulation loss to 10.

The Canadiens failed to get a win for coach Michel Therrien in his first game against the Penguins since he was fired as their coach in 2009.
