MONTREAL -- Tampa Bay Lightning center Nate Thompson scored his second goal of the game 4:36 into overtime to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday.
Thompson, who scored a shorthanded goal in the second, beat Montreal goalie Carey Price on a centering pass from left winger Alex Killorn with 23.1 seconds remaining in the extra period.
Canadiens center Daniel Briere tied it 1-1 with his ninth goal 7:25 into the third period.
Both teams had power-play opportunities late in the third, including Montreal for the final 1:05 of regulation after Tampa Bay defenseman Eric Brewer was called for interference.
Lightning goalie Ben Bishop stopped 28 shots as he returned without missing a start after suffering an upper-body injury early in his last outing.
The 6-foot-7, 214-pound goalie left 1:49 into the first period Thursday in Tampa Bay's 5-3 loss in Ottawa after he was hit in the back of the head by Lightning center Nikita Kucherov's skate.
Price made 34 saves for Montreal, which ended a two-game losing streak and has lost five of seven.
Thompson got credit for the Lightning's second shorthanded goal in as many games 5:58 into the second when Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban redirected the puck past Canadiens goalie Carey Price into his own net.
Briere scored for a second game in a row following a 10-game goal-less drought when he took right winger Brian Gionta's pass across the Lightning zone to beat Bishop between the legs with a shot from the left faceoff dot.
Bishop got into a skirmish with Montreal right winger Brandon Prust during a TV timeout in the second period. Price came down the ice to join the scrum along the boards in Tampa Bay's zone.
Both goalies were penalized at 17:02 for leaving their respective goal creases and Prust got a minor penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct, while Tampa Bay defenseman Radko Gudas and Montreal right winger George Parros were given 10-minute misconduct penalties.
Price stopped Lightning center Nikita Kucherov on a penalty shot 4:41 into the first period. Kucherov was awarded the penalty shot after he was hooked by Canadiens defenseman Nathan Beaulieu when he went in on a breakaway.
Bishop slid to his left to deny Montreal left winger Rene Bourque's scoring chance 3:12 into the second.
