"It was special tonight," Koivu said. "I don't know what I thought when the puck went in because it all happened so fast. But it was great to score a winning goal in a game like this."
Montreal trailed 3-1 going into the third period, but stormed back on goals from Donald Audette, Doug Gilmour, Koivu and an empty-netter with one second left by Joe Juneau.
