Recap: Montreal vs. Winnipeg

Montreal, QC (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Frolik scored the winner in the third period and Al Montoya made 30 saves as the Winnipeg Jets took a 2-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday.

Tobias Enstrom scored the other goal for the Jets, who have won four of their last five.

"I made the first save and our guys were there to battle," said Montoya. "Any guy in front of the net, you mind him and take care of business."

Brian Gionta scored the only goal and Carey Price allowed both goals on 33 shots for the Canadiens, who have lost their past two games.

"We were intense today and hit two posts, but Montoya made some good key saves," said Montreal head coach Michel Therrien. "Sure we would like to score more goals, but I liked the intensity we showed today."

The winning goal came at 1:04 of the third due to a mistake from Price.

Montreal's goaltender came out of the net to his right to play the puck, but Andrew Ladd flew in and knocked it behind the net. Ladd then quickly threw a pass over to the right side and Frolik snapped it into the net before Price could re-establish himself.

From there, it was all Montoya as he turned away all 10 shots he faced in the final period to seal the victory.

After a scoreless first period, the Jets took a 1-0 lead at 9:13 of the second as Enstrom received a pass along the left boards and went behind the net before spinning around at the right and wristing in a shot for his sixth of the year.

Montreal, though, tied the game at 17:06 of the second as Tomas Plekanec slipped a backhand pass from the right boards to the slot where Gionta quickly switched from the backhand to the forehand and snapped a shot past Montoya's glove.
