NEWARK, N.J. - David Desharnais scored the tying goal with 37 seconds left in the third period and added a goal in the shootout and the Montreal Canadiens rallied for a 4-3 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday.

Lars Eller also scored in third period and shootout for Montreal, which also beat the Devils in Montreal on Monday night.

Rookie Reid Boucher, making his NHL debut, scored for the Devils in the shootout, breaking a string of 20 straight missed chances by the Devils, who are 0-5 in shootouts this season.
