NHL: Montreal 6, Florida 5 (SO)
Montreal's Andrei Markov got the only goal of a shootout Sunday and the Canadians won for the fourth time in five games, downing the Florida Panthers 6-5.
Markov, following failed attempts by five other shooters, backhanded the puck past Florida goalie Craig Anderson.
Radek Dvorak scored twice, and Jassen Cullimore, David Booth and Brett McLean had a goal apiece for Florida, which has dropped five of six contests.
Montreal goalie Jaroslav Halak turned back 30 shots and Anderson stopped 40.
