Final Score: Ottawa 2, Montreal 1 (SO)
Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - Peter Regin's goal in the fifth round of the shootout and Ben Bishop's 44-save effort lifted the Ottawa Senators over the Montreal Canadiens, 2-1, in a Northeast Division battle. Dave Dziurzynski scored in regulation for the Senators, who have won five in a row. Bishop started his second straight game in net for an injured Craig Anderson, who is out with a sprained right ankle suffered last Thursday against the New York Rangers. Ottawa, which improved to 9-1-2 as the host this season, now sits one point behind Montreal in the division standings.

Final Score: Nashville 5, Dallas 4 (OT)
Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Pekka Rinne had an off night for the Nashville Predators. Fortunately, his team managed to break out of its scoring slump. Roman Josi recorded a career-high two goals, including a power-play tally 28 seconds into overtime, as the Predators halted a two-game skid with a 5-4 come-from-behind triumph over the Dallas Stars at Bridgestone Arena. After being shut out in their two most recent setbacks during a stretch of four defeats in five games, Nashville received a four-point night out of Josi and rallied from a 4-2 second-period deficit to offset a sluggish performance by the usually reliable Rinne, who let up four goals in the middle session and made just 20 saves. Mike Fisher tied the contest with 8:22 left in regulation with his 200th career goal, with Craig Smith and Patric Hornqvist also lighting the lamp for a Nashville squad that entered the contest as the NHL's lowest-scoring team. Matt Fraser netted his first career NHL marker and Loui Eriksson had a goal and an assist for Dallas, which suffered its third loss in four games despite three assists from Michael Ryder. Christopher Nilstorp finished with 26 saves for the Stars.

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - The streak continues for the Chicago Blackhawks. Marian Hossa scored 1:44 into overtime to lift the Blackhawks over the Edmonton Oilers, 3-2, on Monday. Viktor Stalberg and Patrick Kane also scored for Chicago, which is riding an NHL-record streak of 19 straight games to open the season with a point (16-0-3), surpassing the previous record of 16 held by the 2006-07 Anaheim Ducks. Ray Emery made 17 saves for the Blackhawks, who have won six in a row. Chicago also improved to 8-0-1 at home this season. Jeff Petry and Nail Yakupov scored for the Oilers, who started a nine-game road trip on Monday. Nikolai Khabibulin stopped 31-of-34 shots in defeat.
