“Watching is an opportunity you can learn some stuff,” says Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Connor Carrick who was out with an injury

For the second time this season, Matthews scored an overtime-winning goal, and the Maple Leafs defeated the Canadiens 4-3 at Bell Centre, Toronto's first win against Montreal in their past 14 tries. Montreal had a 14-game win streak against the Toronto Maple Leafs snapped Saturday night. He and the Canadiens haven't won since their season opener against Buffalo Oct. 5.

Jeff Petry, Alex Galchenyuk and Jonathan Drouin scored for the Canadiens.

The Canadiens struck first as Petry took a drop pass from Drouin and fired a shot through traffic past Frederik Andersen at 2:19.

It also had video reviews, two of them. One disallowed a Matthews goal because of a high stick, the other reversed the call on the ice and gave Patrick Marleau a goal, a reward for tenaciously digging at the puck. A faceoff in the Montreal zone went to van Riemsdyk for a weak shot that went in off Petry, and then Matthews, while on an end-to-end rush, grabbed a weak clearing attempt by Jordie Benn and beat and an off-balance Price with a shot under the crossbar at 8:16.

Canadiens: Play at San Jose on Tuesday night.
