BOSTON (AP) — Erin Ambrose scored a goal and assisted on Laura Stacey's winner in overtime to help Montreal beat Boston 2-1 Sunday.

Ambrose, on the left side, slipped a pass between two defenders and in front of Boston goaltender Aerin Frankel to Stacey at the far post for a tap-in goal with 2:24 left in OT.

Ambrose opened the scoring with 4:01 left in the first period. Marie-Philip Poulin dropped a one-touch pass to Ambrose, who knifed in front of the net and beat Frankel to make it 1-0.

Elaine Chuli got her third win in as many starts this season for Montreal (3-2-2-1) and stopped 26 of the 27 shots she faced. Her 0.962 save percentage this season is best in the league.
