Never-say-die Canadiens salvage another road point in defeat

  Never-say-die Canadiens salvage another road point in defeat BUFFALO — Resiliency has become the trademark for the Canadiens. Marcus Johansson scored the winning goal at 1:30 of overtime as Montreal wrapped up its season-opening road trip with a 5-4 loss to the Buffalo Sabres at KeyBank Arena Wednesday night. The Canadiens were just getting back to even strength as Johansson scored. They had been short-handed after Phillip Danault went off with 34.9 seconds remaining in regulation. The Canadiens finished the trip with a 1-0-2 record as they managed to pick up at least a point in all three of their road games and, on each occasion, they came back from deficits in the third period.
