Johansson scores in OT, Sabres top Canadiens 5-4
Jack Eichel scored twice and added two assists, and the Sabres improved to 3-0-1, the team’s best start since opening the 2009-10 season 4-0-1. Rookie Victor Olofsson matched an NHL record in becoming the fourth NHL player to score first six career goals on the power play in a game Buffalo converted two of five opportunities.
Joel Armia scored twice and added an assist in a game the Canadiens rallied from a two-goal, third-period deficit. Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Ben Chiarot, with the tying goal with 7:06 remaining, also scored for the Canadiens (1-0-2)
Keith Kincaid stopped 34 shots.
The game was decided just as Montreal’s Paul Byron exited the penalty box while serving a slashing penalty.
Hart shined in the Philly debut of new coach Alain Vigneault, securing the shutout in his 33rd NHL game.
Hart became the youngest goaltender in Flyers’ history to record a shutout, at the age of 21 years, 57 days. He topped Dominic Roussel, who shut out Calgary on February 27, 1992, at the age of 22 years, five days.
Miller finished Vancouver’s home opener with a career-high four points, while Brandon Sutter had two goals and an assist and Chris Tanev added a goal and an assist.
