Golden Knights rally past Canadiens in Game 4, even series


MONTREAL — Nicolas Roy scored 1:18 into overtime, and the Vegas Golden Knights evened the Stanley Cup Semifinals with a 2-1 win against the Montreal Canadiens in Game 4 at Bell Centre on Sunday.

Roy got his own rebound and flipped the puck over Carey Price after Max Pacioretty skated out from behind the net and took a shot from a sharp angle.

Robin Lehner made 27 saves for Vegas in his first game since May 30, when he allowed seven goals in a 7-1 loss to the Colorado Avalanche in Game 1 of the Second Round.

Paul Byron scored, and Price made 19 saves for Montreal, which had won two straight

Game 5 of the best-of-7 series will be in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

Brayden McNabb scored his first Stanley Cup Playoff goal since May 12, 2018, to tie it 1-1 at 10:37 of the third. The defenseman skated in from the right point, received a pass by William Karlsson from behind the net, and scored with a wrist shot that found an opening between Price’s glove and body.

Byron scored his second goal in three games to give the Canadiens a 1-0 lead at 18:55 of the second. Nick Suzuki stepped out of the penalty box and hit a streaking Byron, who got behind Alex Martinez and beat Lehner over his blocker on a breakaway.

Montreal has not allowed a power-play goal in 11 straight playoff games (26-for-26).

Assistant Luke Richardson coached the Canadiens for the second straight game after coach Dominique Ducharme tested positive for COVID-19 prior to Game 3.
