Brian Gionta scored on a penalty shot at 2:04 of overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 1-0 victory over the New York Rangers in the final NHL regular-season game for both teams Saturday night.

Gionta was awarded the shot after he poked the puck away from Raphael Diaz and then was tripped by the defenseman on a breakaway. He deked to the backhand to beat Cam Talbot on the shot.

Carey Price made 41 saves as Montreal finished with 100 points and moved past Tampa Bay for second place in the Atlantic Division.

The Lightning can still claim home ice advantage for their first round playoff meeting versus Montreal with a victory on their final game Sunday against Washington.

The Rangers have home ice for the first round.
