The Montreal Canadiens beat Nashville 2-1 when Max Pacioretty scored from the left circle 2:31 into overtime before a sellout crowd Saturday night.
"My job in the seam is to pitch in offensively," Pacioretty said. "I think our line did a pretty good job of that, in taking the puck to the net on four-on-four."
Trotz, who became the fourth NHL coach to spend 1,000 games leading one franchise, thought his Predators were feeling the effects of a five-game road trip. They returned home at 6 a.m. Thursday.
