Zegras scores twice, Ducks hold off Canadiens for 5-4 win

MONTREAL (AP) Anaheim scored three first-period goals, Trevor Zegras scored twice in the second period, and then the Ducks held off the Montreal Canadiens for a 5-4 win on Thursday night.

Zegras' first goal was the fourth lacrosse-style goal in NHL history. He carried the puck behind the Canadiens' net before scooping it up with his stick blade and putting it over goalie Sam Montembeault's right shoulder.

"Honestly, I just tried to take the crowd out of it," Zegras said, jokingly, since there were no fans before of COVID-19 restrictions. "It was a big goal for them, the atmosphere was pretty crazy tonight, it was one of those things where I tried to take the crowd out of it."
