NHL: Plekanec breaks scoring drought


Tomáš Plekanec broke a two-month drought and scored his eighth goal of the season in the Montreal Canadiens’ 4-1 win against the Ottawa Senators. He scored just 28 seconds into the match, picking up and slotting the rebound from an Andrej Markov shot seconds earlier. Plekanec, who is 34, missed three matches in March due to injury. Montreal are currently top in the Atlantic division and fifth in the Eastern Conference.
