DALLAS, March 8 (UPI) -- Goals by Andrei Kostitsyn, Alex Kovalev and Christopher Higgins carried the Montreal Canadiens to a 3-1 come-from-behind win Sunday over the Dallas Stars.

Kostitsyn scored with 15 minutes remaining in the second period to tie the score and Kovalev fired in the goal that turned out to be the game-winner just under 10 minutes later.

Higgins added a score in the third period.

Dallas led early after a first-period power-play goal by Loui Eriksson but was shut out by Canadiens goalie Carey Price the rest of the way.

Price finished with 30 saves and Marty Turco had 16 for the Stars, who have lost six straight games at home.
