Michael Frolik scored in the third period to give the Winnipeg Jets a 2-1 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday afternoon.

Tobias Enstrom also scored for the Jets and Al Montoya stopped 30 shots.

Brian Gionta scored for Montreal. Carey Price, playing his second game in as many days, made 33 saves.

Frolik scored the winner just over a minute into the third. After a Winnipeg dump-in, Price mishandled the puck outside his crease and lost possession to Andrew Ladd. The Jets' captain found a streaking Frolik in front of the net, and Price couldn't make it back in time to stop the shot.

The Jets have won eight of 10 since Paul Maurice took over as head coach on Jan. 12.
