However, the Senators shot themselves in the foot early in the game when the Golden Knights took a 2-0 lead after a goal from Chandler Stephenson early in the second period. Quebec's Jonathan Marchessault scored the first goal after 5 minutes and 41 seconds in the first game.

However, Stephenson's success appeared to have galvanized Jacques Martin's men, who went on to score three unanswered goals. Defender Thomas Chabot first reduced the score before Drake Batherson equalized on the power play. Josh Norris gave the Senators the lead for the first time.

Stephenson sent both teams into overtime at the end of the third period.

With this win, Ottawa is in seventh place in the Atlantic, one point ahead of the Montreal Canadiens. The Golden Knights are now 11 points out of first place in the Pacific Division, which is held by the Vancouver Canucks.

A comeback for the Canucks

Speaking of the Canucks, they showed character in their 3-2 overtime win against the Boston Bruins.

Trailing 2-0 after two periods, the British Columbia team's big guns woke up. In fact, Brock Boeser cut the deficit to a single goal with less than eight minutes to play.

While Thatcher Demko was benched in favor of a sixth outfielder for the Canucks, Filip Hronek equalized with a slap shot from the blue line. Boeser then scored the winning goal on the power play in overtime.

Jesper Boqvist and Danton Heinen responded for Boston.

Jeremy Swayman was strong in the Bruins' loss, stopping 35 pucks. Demko made 20 saves.

A hat trick for Bertuzzi

Tyler Bertuzzi, who has often found himself in trouble since the start of the season, certainly had his best game with the Toronto Maple Leafs, scoring three goals in his club's 4-3 win over the Colorado Avalanche.

It was he who scored the winning goal on the power play at the very end of the game, completing his hat trick.

The game started well for the Avalanche, who took a 2-0 lead after 11:07 minutes of play. However, three unanswered goals from the Queen City club completely revived the game. Mikko Rantanen then equalized between the two teams in the first few minutes of the final third.

Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Cogliano provided the other answers for Colorado, while Nathan MacKinnon had three assists. Mitch Marner was the other scorer for Toronto.
