MONTREAL, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Pascal Dupuis put Pittsburgh in front with 6:39 remaining in the third period Thursday and the Penguins went on to down Montreal 3-2.

Pittsburgh won for the fourth time in six games and had to rally from a one-goal deficit to get the victory.

Matt Cooke lifted the Penguins into a 2-2 tie with 2:15 to play in the second period by tipping in a shot by Sergei Gonchar.

Dupuis scored the game-winning goal after taking a rink-wide pass from Brooks Orpik. Dupuis fired a slap shot from the top of the left circle that got past Carey Price.

Price stopped 38-of-41 shots. Marc-Andre Fleury had to make just 19 saves to get the win.

Pittsburgh has defeated Montreal three times this year and has outscored the Canadiens in those games 12-4.
