CANUCKS 4, PANTHERS 3 SO

Eddie Lack got the better of former goaltender teammate Roberto Luongo, as he made 26 saves to lift the Vancouver Canucks to a shootout win.

Luongo was traded to the Panthers (25-35-8) on March 4 after he spent parts of eight seasons in Vancouver (31-29-10).

He made 29 saves against his former team, but surrendered the lone shootout goal by Nicklas Jensen that proved the difference in the game.

OILERS 2, HURRICANES 1

Defenseman Justin Schultz scored a power-play goal midway through the third period as the Edmonton Oilers capped a successful four-game road trip with a victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Edmonton (24-36-9), with the worst road record in the Western Conference entering the game, went 2-1-1 on the trip.

The Hurricanes (29-30-9) had 20 points in January, but have gone 4-10 since to fall out of the Eastern Conference playoff chase.

CANADIENS 2, SABRES 0

Goalie Dustin Tokarski made 29 saves for his first career shutout, leading the Montreal Canadiens to a victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

Tokarski made his seventh career NHL start. The Canadiens’ regular goaltender, Carey Price, got the night off due to a lower-body injury.

Dale Weise and Brad Gallagher scored for Montreal (37-25-7), who won back-to-back games for the first time in more than two weeks.
