NEWARK, N.J. - Alex Galchenyuk and Sven Andrighetto scored in regulation and again in the shootout and the Montreal Canadiens rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2 on Friday night for their fourth straight win.

Mike Condon started for the injured Carey Price and preserved the win by stopping Patrik Elias with his pad on the Devils' fifth attempt in the shootout. He finished with 25 saves, the same as the Devils' Cory Schneider.

Adam Henrique and Lee Stempniak scored for the Devils in regulation and Jacob Josefson had the only New Jersey tally in the shootout. The Devils have lost four of five games.

Schneider had two outstanding stops in overtime, including a point-blank save on Max Pacioretty on a power play in the waning seconds and a short-handed stop on Tomas Plekanec's breakaway.

Andrighetto pulled Montreal within 2-1 with 4:43 left in the second period, and then Galchenyuk tied it with 8:46 left in the third.
