Galchenyuk nets OT goal, Canadiens beat Rangers

(AP) -- Alex Galchenyuk tipped in a pass at the right post 1:12 into overtime, and the Montreal Canadiens overcame a late tying goal and beat the New York Rangers 3-2 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals Thursday night.



Montreal cut New York's series lead to 2-1, and can tie it Sunday night at Madison Square Garden before heading home for Game 5.



Galchenyuk, playing only his second game of these playoffs after returning from an injury Monday, deflected a feed from Tomas Plekanec to win it.



The Rangers tied it with 28.1 seconds left in regulation on Chris Kreider's goal.



Dustin Tokarski was sharp throughout in his second NHL playoff game in place of injured goalie Carey Price, making 35 saves.
