Max Pacioretty scored 3:08 into overtime, Carey Price made 36 saves and the Montreal Canadiens edged the Washington Capitals 1-0 Saturday for their fifth straight win.

Price posted his second shutout in a row. He stopped the New York Rangers 1-0 Thursday night, with Pacioretty scoring late in the third period.

Washington lost its fifth consecutive road game.

Pacioretty went to the net to tip Tomas Plekanec's pass over goaltender Braden Holtby for the winning goal.
