MONTREAL, Jan. 27 (UPI) -- Andrei Markov's fourth goal in four games was an overtime game-winner Sunday, boosting the Montreal Canadiens over New Jersey 4-3.

Markov scored against New Jersey's Martin Brodeur On the ensuing faceoff, collecting his third game-winning goal of the young season.

Ryan White, Brendan Gallagher and Brandon Prust also scored and Carey Price turned aside 22-of-25 shots for the Habs.

Dave Clarkson and Patrik Elias each notched a goal and an assist and Dainius Zubrus scored a goal for the Devils, who fell for the first time this season after three straight victories.

Brodeur made 28 saves.
