Ottawa, ON (Sports Network) - Cory Conacher scored the tying goal late in regulation and Kyle Turris won it at 2:32 of overtime, as the Ottawa Senators claimed a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 4 of this Eastern Conference quarterfinal.

Turris was harassed by a Canadiens defender in the left circle, but the Sens forward escaped long enough to send a wrister to the Habs' net, which deflected off the elbow of defenseman Raphael Diaz and caromed past Peter Budaj -- who began the extra session in place of the injured Carey Price -- to end the contest.

Mika Zibanejad also tallied for the Senators, who took a commanding 3-1 series edge with Game 5 set to return to Montreal on Thursday.

Craig Anderson stopped 26 shots for Ottawa, which can advance to the second round for the first time since 2007 with one more victory.

PK Subban and Alex Galchenyuk lit the lamp early in the second period for the Canadiens. Price ended up with 30 saves, but Budaj was saddled with the loss.
