Eight goals.

In the 100-plus-year history of the Montreal Canadiens, no player has scored more than eight overtime winners through his time with the Habs.

Max Pacioretty joined the club Wednesday, pocketing the game winner in extra time as the Canadiens toppled the Dallas Stars 4-3. The captain's now tied with Aurel Joliat and Howie Morenz for most in Montreal history, according to the NHL's public relations department.

Rank Player Tenure OT Goals
T1 Max Pacioretty 2008- 8
T1 Aurel Joliat 1922-38 8
T1 Howie Morenz 1923-37 8
T2 Johnny Gagnon 1930-40 7
T2 Saku Koivu 1995-2009 7

The goal was Pacioretty's sixth game-winning tally on the campaign, and not only his second overtime winner this season, but his second in as many nights - he scored Tuesday's OT winner against the Nashville Predators.
