MONTREAL, Quebec (AP) – Ryan Johansen scored late in the third period to give the Blue Jackets a 3-2 victory over Montreal on Thursday night, ending the Canadiens’ three-game winning streak.

Derek MacKenzie and Brandon Dubinsky also scored for Columbus. Sergei Bobrovsky, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, made 25 saves while starting the Blue Jackets’ 16th straight game and 23rd in the last 24.

Brendan Gallagher and Thomas Vanek scored for the Canadiens, and Carey Price stopped 37 shots.

Johansen took advantage of rookie defenseman Jarred Tinordi’s giveaway at the Canadiens’ blue line. Johansen intercepted a weak pass and beat Price on a partial breakaway for his team-leading 27th goal of the year at 16:59 of the third period.
