Fifty shots is usually enough to win a hockey game. Not when Craig Anderson is guarding the goal. Anderson made 48 saves, many of them spectacular, and the Ottawa Senators staged a third-period comeback to beat the Canadiens, 4-2, Thursday night in Montreal in the opening game of the first playoff series between the geographic rivals.
The Canadiens set team playoff records with 27 shots in the second period and 50 overall. Wasn’t enough: Anderson outplayed Montreal goalie Carey Price, who stopped 27 shots at the other end.
