PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens are still adjusting to NHL play after a nearly three-week Olympic layoff. And it showed Thursday night. The Canadiens, playing in their second game in as many days, however, got a good performance in the end from their backup goaltender as he filled in for an injured Olympic gold medallist . Peter Budaj stopped all three shooters in the shootout and David Desharnais scored the only goal, leading the Canadiens to a wild 6-5 victory. "He battled back in the second and third and in the shootout he was outstanding," Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said of Budaj. Budaj, in his second straight start for injured starter Carey Price, stopped Penguins shooters James Neal and Sidney Crosby before denying Evgeni Malkins slap shot for the win. Desharnais, the third shooter for Montreal, slammed on the brakes at the top of the crease before sliding the puck by Marc-Andre Fleury. "I would like to have some goals back, but we scored five goals against Pittsburgh," Budaj said. "We have to learn from the mistakes we made. We have to keep going and getting better." Daniel Briere scored twice, once on the power play, and Max Pacioretty also scored with the man advantage, his 27th of the year. Brendan Gallagher netted his 15th for the Canadiens and Alexei Emelin also scored his second of the season. Budaj, who stopped 27 shots, made his second straight start after turning aside 28 shots during an overtime loss one day earlier against Detroit. "You can tell the bench guys wanted to battle back for him because he certainly worked hard," Therrien said. He filled in for Price, who was named the top goaltender at the Olympic games after going 5-0 with a 0.59 goals-against average and two shutouts, leading Team Canada to a gold medal. Price, who aggravated a lower-body injury sustained in Sochi, will be re-evaluated Friday. "Credit to the team because they stuck with it, they battled for me and we got the two points," Budaj said. Crosby, who leads the NHL with 80 points, scored his 29th and added an assist. Neal scored his 21st for his 300th career point and also had an assist, while Malkin provided two assists, both extending six-game point streaks. Olli Maatta scored his seventh of the season on the power play and had an assist, while Brandon Sutter had a short-handed goal, his 10th of the year. Deryk Engelland also scored his career-high fifth goal. "We worked hard," Crosby said. "It was a little sloppy, and a lot of special teams. ... Probably a tough first one for everybody to get into." The teams were tied at 3 after two periods and both scored twice in the third, sending the game to overtime. Three of the four third-period goals were scored by special teams units, Sutter giving the Penguins a 4-3 lead with a short-handed breakaway goal and Crosby later putting Pittsburgh ahead 5-4 on the power play. Emelin tied it 24 seconds after Sutter gave the Penguins the initial lead and Briere sent the game to overtime with his second goal of the game. With the Canadiens trailing, the Penguins Tanner Glass was issued a five-minute major for a hit on Emelin. The call was elbowing, but video replays showed Emelins stick came up and hit him in the head. "Thats why I kind of followed through the way I did, to get his stick away from my face," Glass said. "Its a hockey play, it happens. I can understand why he made the call." The Canadiens cashed in anyway, Briere tying it with his second of the game when he feathered a back-door rebound behind Fleury, who made 24 saves. NOTES: Penguins D Kris Letang spoke with reporters Thursday morning, the first time since suffering a stroke and said he will likely play hockey again, but its unclear if he will return this season. ... Paul Martin, out 4-to-6 weeks after breaking his hand in the Olympics, was scratched along with recently recalled D Simon Despres. ... Price, C Ryan White, and D Francis Bouillon were scratched for Montreal. ... Penguins F Jussi Jokinen recorded his 400th career point.

With three games left to play, Spurs were second and had a five-point advantage over Manchester City and Arsenal.After drawing with Chelsea and West Brom and losing to Southampton, they still needed just a point against relegated Newcastle on the final day to finish as runners-up. However, Spurs were thrashed 5-1 at St James Park, despite playing against 10 men for the last 20 minutes, and ended up third behind Arsenal.We were all praising them at the beginning of the season, saying they were mentally strong and technically and physically great, former Arsenal forward Henry said on Sky Sports.But they showed in the last few games something that you have when you have a team of a lot of youngsters; sometimes you can be mentally weak.Hopefully they can learn from that and come back better next season. Mauricio Pochettino apologised to the Tottenham fans and family and feels his squad needs to improve mentally You need to concentrate on yourself, and see what you can achieve. Obviously for a long time they were chasing Leicester to be champions, now theyve finished third, yet again behind Arsenal. It does matter in London, but the bigger picture is to be champions.Even though Arsenal snatched second on the final day, Jamie Carragher thinks Spurs had the better season.I dont think the big thing should be finishing behind Arsenal, he said. Tottenham challenged for the title, they were in contention to win the league. With Arsenal that went away in February and the middle of March. Christian Eriksen said the Tottenham squad can only blame themselves for the last four matches of the Premier League season Tottenham took it right to the wire.dddddddddddd The table says Arsenal finished above them and of course it leaves a sour taste, but (Mauricio) Pochettino echoed Thierrys thoughts and said forget this Arsenal thing, its about going for the title and winning trophies.While it was disappointment for Spurs after their defeat at Newcastle, third is still their highest finish in the Premier League. Matt Le Tissier looks back on Newcastles 5-1 demolition of Tottenham Graeme Souness agreed with Henry that they need to learn from the experience and believes they have a bright future.With all due respect to Newcastle, Spurs must have turned up today and just gone through the motions, he said.Thats unacceptable, thats an opportunity for them to learn from it, and learn from the last few games that knocks do come along and youve got to deal with them.The big players and teams bounce back immediately, but they maybe feel sorry for themselves for 24 hours, after that theyre back to work and thats what Tottenham have to learn.
