 TORONTO (AP) - Ben Scrivens stopped 34 shots for his first career shutout and the Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the injury-ravaged Ottawa Senators 3-0 on Saturday night.
Scrivens was making his second straight start since incumbent James Reimer injured a knee in Monday night's 5-2 win over Philadelphia. The 26-year-old Scrivens has been solid as Reimer's replacement, stopping 96 of the 100 shots he has faced.
Fraser McLaren, Tyler Bozak and John-Michael Liles scored for Toronto, which earned its fifth win in six games overall.
LIGHTNING 6, PANTHERS 5, OT
SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Benoit Pouliot scored two goals, including the winner in overtime, and Tampa Bay ended a six-game losing streak.
Steven Stamkos also scored twice, and Teddy Purcell and Alexander Killorn once each for the Lightning. Anders Lindback made 25 saves.
Purcell's goal with 11 seconds left in regulation tied it 5 as his shot from the slot hit off the post and into the net. On the winning score, the puck bounced off the end boards and out to Pouliot, who was open in front. His wrist shot went into the net 1:19 into overtime.
Tomas Kopecky and Jonathan Huberdeau scored in the third period to put the Panthers ahead. Jerred Smithson, Jack Skille, and Shawn Matthias also scored, and Jose Theodore stopped 30 shots.
ISLANDERS 5, DEVILS 1
UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - John Tavares scored three goals and assisted on another to lead the New York Islanders over the New Jersey Devils.
Matt Moulson had a goal and three assists, Michael Grabner scored with 35 seconds left, and Evgeni Nabokov made 30 saves for the Islanders, who beat the Rangers 4-3 in a shootout Thursday night.
The Devils' lone goal was Marek Zidlicky's power play slap shot 8:47 into the third. Johan Hedberg made 28 saves for New Jersey, which has lost two of its last three.
CANADIENS 4, FLYERS 1
MONTREAL (AP) - Rookie Brendan Gallagher had a goal and assist before leaving the game with an injury and the Montreal Canadiens downed the Philadelphia Flyers for their third win in a row.
David Desharnais, Tomas Plekanec and Rene Bourque also scored for the Canadiens, who outshot the tired-looking Flyers 29-19. Gallagher left four minutes into the third period after being hit into the boards by Luke Schenn and did not return. There was no immediate word on the injury.
Daniel Briere scored for Philadelphia, which has lost three of its last four games.
