TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -Tomas Plekanec had an eventful day.
Plekanec scored at 3:32 of overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.
"Not bad. No complaints today," said Plekanec, who earlier in the day was selected to the Czech Republic Olympic team. "I hope there'll be more days like that."
Plekanec beat Mike Smith on a 2-on-1 after a Tampa Bay turnover for his ninth goal.
"I'm trying to look at the guy who's coming with me, trying to look at him as long as I can," Plekanec said. "Then, just a no-look shot. That's why that shot is kind of a fluke, but sometimes it gets the goalie focused on the pass."
