MONTREAL -- Tomas Plekanec scored a power-play goal 5:31 into the third period and the Montreal Canadiens extended their winning streak to four games with a 4-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.
Rene Bourque had a power-play goal for Montreal, which also got goals from rookie Brendan Gallagher and Erik Cole to end Winnipeg's three-game winning streak.
Carey Price made 18 saves, and Andrei Markov, Raphael Diaz and 18-year-old rookie Alex Galchenyuk each had two assists.
Blake Wheeler, Nik Antropov and Olli Jokinen scored for the Jets. Ondrej Pavelec stopped 22 shots.
Winnipeg scored three unanswered goals after Gallagher scored for a second consecutive game 14:22 in to put Montreal up 2-0.
Wheeler drew the Jets within 2-1 with his third goal on a 5-on-3 advantage at 16:10.
Antropov tied it at 2 with his first goal of the season 3:32 into the second, three seconds after Montreal's Lars Eller returned from serving a holding penalty.
Jokinen scored his first Jets goal at 11:48 on a pass from Evander Kane to give Winnipeg a 3-2 lead.
Cole drew Montreal even at 3-3 with his first goal at 15:08, three seconds after Jets forward Alexander Burmistrov's interference penalty expired.
Bourque scored on a power-play 8:04 in. He drove a one-timer past Pavelec from the top of the right faceoff circle.
Antropov's hit on Brandon Prust in front of the Canadiens' bench drew a boarding penalty at 13:52 of the third. Winnipeg ended up with a power play, though, when David Desharnais was given a roughing minor for going after Antropov and Prust was called for unsportsmanlike conduct.
