Winnipeg, MB (Sports Network) - David Desharnais, Brendan Gallagher and Max Pacioretty all scored third-period goals to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a 4-2 victory over Winnipeg in what turned out to be the Jets' final game of the season.

Rene Bourque also tallied in only Montreal's second win in its last seven games, but an important one entering its regular-season finale. The Canadiens remained tied with Boston for first place in the Northeast Division entering Saturday's matchup at Toronto, though the Bruins do own a game in hand.

The Jets entered its regular-season closer one point behind both Ottawa and the New York Rangers in the race for the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference, but were eliminated prior to the conclusion of the game after both teams won on Thursday.

P.K. Subban and Lars Eller each contributed two assists for Montreal, with Carey Price stopping 23-of-25 shots on the evening.

James Wright and Blake Wheeler had the goals for Winnipeg, which finished its 2013 campaign with a 24-21-3 record. Ondrej Pavelec recorded 26 saves in defeat.
