Andrei Markov scored in the sixth round of the shootout, and the Montreal Canadiens beat the NHL-leading Anaheim Ducks 4-3 Wednesday night for their sixth victory in eight games.

Brendan Gallagher had a goal and an assist for the Canadiens, tying it late in the second period. Max Pacioretty got his 30th goal and captain Brian Gionta also scored in an impressive victory before the arrival of new acquisition Thomas Vanek.

Tim Jackman, Francois Beauchemin and Daniel Winnik scored early goals for the Ducks, who had won three straight. Jonas Hiller made 27 saves in Anaheim's first loss since the Olympic break.

Dustin Tokarski stopped 39 shots in his debut for the Canadiens, making several sharp saves in his eighth NHL appearance.
