A recap of last night's Montreal/Toronto Game Five.
The Montreal Canadiens are still alive in the playoffs as Nick Suzuki scored in overtime to defeat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3.

"Montreal came out real hard," said Leaf's head coach,Sheldon Keefe, at the postgame press conference.

The Canadiens scored two quick goals in the first period.

Joel Armia scored at 5:13 and 8:18.

Montreal went ahead 3-0 at 4:52 when Jesperi Kotkaniemi scored.

Toronto battled back, though,

Zach Hyman scored at 6:32 of the second period.

Then, Jake Muzzin scored at 6:52 and 11:54 of the third period to tie the game 3-3.

Just 59 seconds into overtime, Suzuki scored the winner.

Leaf's goalie, Jack Campbell was mediocre in net last night.

"It wasn't his, (Campbell's) best, (game)," said Keefe.

Montreal's goalie, Carey Price stopped 32 shots last night.

Toronto's William Nylander had two assists.

Game Six is in Montreal tomorrow night.
