-Patrick Sharp and Andrew Ladd, Blackhawks, each had two goals and an assist as Chicago beat Colorado 6-2 for its third straight victory.
-Ryan Miller, Sabres, made 24 saves and registered his second straight shutout in Buffalo's 2-0 victory over New Jersey.
-Chris Campoli, Islanders, had his first two goals in nearly a year to help New York beat Columbus 4-3 in overtime.
Kevin Weekes made 28 saves filling in for Martin Brodeur, but the New Jersey Devils lost 2-0 to the Buffalo Sabres. A four-time Vezina Trophy winner, Brodeur suffered a bruised elbow on Saturday. His absence Monday marked the first time in 57 games dating to last season that he did not start. It also marked only the 21st time in his 15-year career that he did not dress for a game.
IF AT FIRST YOU DON'T SUCCEED
cored his first two goals in nearly a year in the New York Islanders' 4-3 overtime victory over Columbus. In a wacky overtime sequence, Campoli got to a loose puck after teammate Mike Comrie lost it in the Columbus zone and fired a shot past Fredrik Norrena. Play continued as the defenseman celebrated prematurely and then waved his arms to signal that he scored, to no avail. He then took a pass in the slot and drilled another shot into the center of the net.
The Chicago Blackhawks beat Colorado 6-2 on Monday night for their third straight victory. Patrick Sharp and Andrew Ladd each had two goals and an assist, and Troy Brouwer and Cam Barker also scored for Chicago, which improved to 6-3-3.
``So far we've been pretty good at home. Something we've stressed as a team is to make it hard for other teams to come into this building.'' - Chicago left wing Andrew Ladd after the Blackhawks beat the Colorado Avalanche 6-2 to remain unbeaten in regulation at home (5-0-2).
