BOSTON (AP) - Andrei Markov tied it with 8.2 seconds left in regulation, and Brendan Gallagher scored the only shootout goal to give the Montreal Canadiens a 6-5 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.

The victory snapped a tie for the second-most points in the Eastern Conference, giving the Canadiens 47. They lead the Northeast Division by a point over the Bruins.

In the shootout, all six Bruins players were stopped. The first five Canadiens couldn't score, either. Then Gallagher put the puck between Tuukka Rask's pads.

It capped a comeback after Boston had taken a 5-3 lead on Tyler Seguin's 11th goal of the season at 11:50 of the third period. Gallagher scored 28 seconds later, then Markov tied it on a power play.

With Aaron Johnson in the penalty box for delay of game, Markov's shot from the left point appeared to go in off the stick of Boston's Zdeno Chara. Gallagher, also in front, initially was credited with the goal before an official scoring change gave it to Markov, his sixth.

Montreal's comeback ruined the Bruins rally from a 2-0 deficit.

Michael Ryder opened the scoring at 4:15 of the first period and P.K. Subban gave the Canadiens a 2-0 lead at 2:53 of the second.

Then the Bruins, who had scored only nine goals in their previous five games, scored four in just over 14 minutes against goalie Carey Price.

Rookie defenseman Dougie Hamilton started the comeback with his fourth goal at 3:32 of the second period, Brad Marchand tied it, Patrice Bergeron put Boston ahead and Nathan Horton made it 4-2 at 17:36 of the period.

Price was replaced by Peter Budaj to start the third period.

Ryder cut the lead to 4-3 with his second goal of the game and 12th of the season at 3:58 of the third period on a 20-foot shot from the left after taking a cross-ice pass from Tomas Plekanec.

But Seguin restored Boston's two-goal advantage, lifting a short backhander over Budaj's left arm off a pass from Marchand. Bergeron got his third assist of the game on the play.

NOTES: The Bruins claimed F Kaspars Daugavins off waivers from the Ottawa Senators and recalled D Torey Krug from Providence of the AHL. ... Eight of the last nine games between the teams have been decided by one goal.
