Vancouver, BC (SportsNetwork.com) -
The Montreal Canadiens close out a three-game swing through Western Canada on Thursday night as they try to slow down the Vancouver Canucks.
The Canadiens lost the opener of the trek 3-0 to Edmonton on Monday, but bounced back to beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 in a shootout the following night.
Tom Gilbert scored a game-tying goal and P.A. Parenteau had the lone shootout tally. As Montreal's third shooter, Parenteau skated in with his head up all the way and beat Jonas Hiller stick side with a wrist shot for the win.
"We're showing that we can come back and don't get discouraged if we don't get the first goal," said Parenteau.
