Newark, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) -
David Desharnais tied the game with 36.6 seconds left in regulation and notched the game-winner in the second round of the shootout, as the Montreal Canadiens downed the New Jersey Devils, 4-3, on Wednesday at Prudential Center.
After the first two shooters found the back of the net in the shootout, Peter Budaj stuffed Travis Zajac's backhander and Desharnais followed by charging down the right wing, cutting in front, and slipping the disc through the five- hole of New Jersey netminder Corey Schneider.
Patrik Elias had a chance to extend the game for New Jersey, but Budaj made a nice left pad save to send Montreal to its third straight victory.

Apologies to everyone who thought their team had a chance to sign Henrik Lundqvist away from the New York Rangers this summer.
In a move that shouldn't surprise anyone who's been watching Lundqvist man the crease for the Blueshirts over the past several seasons, the Rangers locked up their star goaltender months before he could ever hit the open market.
Lundqvist ended speculation about his desire to stay in New York on Wednesday, agreeing to a seven-year deal worth a reported $59.5 million.
