Big Ben Bishop couldn’t have come up much bigger for the Senators than he was Monday night.
The Senators completed their drive for five straight wins on the strength of Peter Regin’s winner and a 44-save performance from Bishop in a 2-1 shootout victory over the Montreal Canadiens in front of 19,218 at Scotiabank Place.
David Dziurzynski also beat Montreal goalie Carey Price on 24 shots as the Senators swept this four-game homestand, but the inability to win in regulation means Ottawa remains one point behind the Habs for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
