BOSTON (AP) — David Desharnais scored the winner with his second goal of the game less than four minutes after Max Pacioretty tied it earlier in the third period, lifting the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-3 comeback win over the Boston Bruins in a matchup of the Eastern Conference's top teams Sunday night.

Tomas Plekanec also scored for the Canadiens, who jumped two points ahead of Boston for first overall in the conference.

Tyler Seguin, Patrice Bergeron and Dougie Hamilton had Boston's goals.

Peter Budaj made 31 saves for Montreal, which played the first of five straight road games.

Tuukka Rask stopped 22 shots for the Bruins, who had a six-game winning streak halted.
