LOS ANGELES (AP) - Cory Schneider made 20 saves en route to his sixth NHL shutout, Mason Raymond scored in the first period, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Saturday for their third straight victory.
The defending Stanley Cup champion Kings, coming off a 2-0 home loss to Dallas on Thursday in which they had 40 shots, were shut out for the third time this season. It is the first time they have been blanked in consecutive games since Feb. 16-18, 2012.
Schneider has played the last three games for the Canucks, facing 88 shots and allowing only three goals. His other shutout this season was on Jan. 26 at Anaheim.
The Canucks, who maintained their share of the Northwest Division lead with Minnesota, scored the only goal at 11:06 of the first period.
WILD 2, SHARKS 0
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Niklas Backstrom made 33 saves for his first shutout of the season, and Ryan Suter had two more assists, leading Minnesota past San Jose for the Wild's season-high fifth straight victory.
Zach Parise and Jared Spurgeon scored for Minnesota. The Wild are 14-5-1 in their last 20 games, and have won by at least two goals in each victory in the streak.
Backstrom swatted aside Andrew Desjardins' penalty shot barely 3 minutes into the game. The goalie is 13-3-1 in his last 17 games, giving up two goals or fewer in 13 of those turns.
Antti Niemi made several tough stops among his 22 saves for the Sharks,
The Sharks won their first seven games, but since then they have been unable to stay in a groove. They fell to 2-5-2 in their last nine.
SENATORS 5, LIGHTNING 3
OTTAWA (AP) - Jakob Silfverberg, Eric Gryba, Guillaume Latendresse and Daniel Alfredsson scored in a 7:01 span in the first period, and Ottawa held off Tampa Bay.
Alfredsson also had an empty-net goal in the final minute. Robin Lehner made 29 saves, and Marc Methot, who missed the last game because of a knee injury, and Kyle Turris each had two assists.
Tyler Johnson scored twice in the third period for Tampa Bay, and Teddy Purcell made it 4-3 with 1:59 left.
Mathieu Garon was yanked from the Tampa Bay net in the first period after allowing three goals on the first 11 shots. Cedrick Desjardins was strong in relief, making 19 saves.
