Sean Monahan's second goal of the game 1:14 into overtime and 35 saves from David Rittich lifted the Flames to a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night. Calgary challenged, and the second review showed no interference and the goal was awarded to Hathaway - his first of the season and second in 46 National Hockey League games. The Flames backup netminder owns a 2-1-0 record with a 2.57 goals-against-average and a.913 save percentage this season. He doesn't have any fantasy value. Monahan finished a 2-on-1 break by taking a feed from Johnny Gaudreau and beating Carey Price from the slot. Calgary remains in search of its first win of the month after falling to 0-2-1 with Wednesday's 2-1 shootout loss at Toronto.

Daniel Carr and Phillip Danault scored for Montreal (13-13-4), which is 5-1-1 in its last seven games. Price stopped 34 shots.

Montreal captain Max Pacioretty broke down the right side and backhanded a pass in front that Danault tipped over Rittich's glove at 10:10 of the second period.

Seven of the 11 major S&P sectors were lower, with the consumer staples index's 0.51 per cent fall leading the decliners. The technology sector is building on Wednesday's gains, led by strength in semiconductor stocks.

The Flames got the puck into the net in a goal-mouth scramble at 7:49 of the third, but officials ruled no goal because Price was pushed into the net.

Hathaway, Sam Bennett and Brett Kulak were jamming at the puck when it crossed the line. Carr backhanded a shot off Rittich's back and in from close range at 8:36.

It was the sixth point in four games for Carr since he was called up from AHL Laval last week.

The Flames had a chance for the lead with a two-man advantage for a full minute starting at the 12:47 mark but couldn't score. Curtis Lazar will hit the same plateau with his next contest while goaltender Mike Smith, who likely will be rested Thursday after making 28 saves versus the Maple Leafs, will reach 500 career games with his next appearance. Tkachuk forfeited $11,280.49. Calgary RW Jaromir Jagr missed his second game in a row after aggravating a lower body injury he sustained November 25.

The Habs bench boss also announced that he would make one change to his lineup, with Jakub Jerabek drawing in in place of Victor Mete. Montreal C Jonathan Drouin, recovered from his lower-body injury after missing three games, did not play against the Flames because of illness.
