MONTREAL — Max Pacioretty scored 3:08 into overtime, Carey Price made 36 saves and the Montreal Canadiens edged the Washington Capitals 1-0 on Saturday for their fifth consecutive win.

Price posted his second shutout in a row. He stopped the New York Rangers by the same score on Thursday night, with Pacioretty scoring late in the third period.

Washington lost its fifth consecutive road game.

Pacioretty went to the net to tip Tomas Plekanec’s pass over goaltender Braden Holtby for the winning goal.

Price showed his form early with a glove save from in close on Brooks Laich during a power play in the first period.

Price did even better as the Canadiens took consecutive minors in the second frame, making a quick pad save on Troy Brouwer from the slot and a glove save through traffic on Nicklas Backstrom.

Alex Ovechkin, whose shift lasted nearly 4½ minutes, and John Carlson hit posts during the same sequence.
