MONTREAL (AP) - Tomas Plekanec scored a tiebreaking goal on a power play at 5:31 of the third period to lift the Montreal Canadiens to their fourth straight win, 4-3 over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

Canadiens rookies Alex Galchenyuk and Brendan Gallagher each had two points in their first game since it was confirmed they would stay with the NHL club. Galagher scored for a second straight game for Montreal.

Rene Bourque and Erik Cole each had their first goal of the season for Montreal, while Olli Jokinen had his first goal as a Jet.

Nik Antropov and Blake Wheeler also scored for Winnipeg, which ended a three-game winning streak.

Plekanec's shot from the right circle looked to go in off Ron Hainsey's stick. Andrei Markov and Rafael Diaz each earned his second point of the night on the play.

Bourque scored on a shot from outside the right circle on a power play that Ondrej Pavelec waved at 8:04 into the game.

Gallagher made it 2-0 with a shot off a rush that went in off the crossbar at 14:22.

Wheeler got one back as a bouncing shot got over Carey Price's arm on a power play at 16:10.

A Jets power play had just ended, but there was still heavy pressure in the Montreal zone when Antropov fired Brian Little's rebound into an open side 3:32 into the second period.

Jokinen put Winnipeg ahead at 11:48 when he snapped a shot under the crossbar after a David Desharnais turnover in the neutral zone.

Montreal returned the favor, scoring 3 seconds after a man advantage, when Cole pushed the puck in from a scramble at the side of Pavelec's net.

Notes: The last time a team named the Winnipeg Jets won in Montreal was March 1985. ... P.K. Subban will join the Canadiens in Ottawa on Wednesday, but it is uncertain when he will play. He signed a two-year contract on Monday... Defenseman Tomas Kaberle returned to the Montreal lineup, bumping Yannick Weber.
