Mats Sundin scored his club-record 400th goal for Toronto with 17.6 seconds left in the third period and scored in the shootout, but Montreal defeated the Maple Leafs 4-3 Tuesday night.
Vancouver forward Markus Naslund, who also had an assist, scored his seventh goal in seven games Tuesday night, a 4-0 victory over Anaheim.

Todd Bertuzzi's return to Vancouver as a member of the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night was spoiled by the Canucks' 4-0 victory.

Philadelphia forward Scott Hartnell was suspended two games by the NHL on Tuesday, the fourth Flyers player disciplined by the league this season for illegal hits. Hartnell checked Boston defenseman Andrew Alberts in the head Monday night and was given a major penalty for boarding. Andrews left the game with an unspecified head injury.
``It is crazy but, hey, I'd rather have people worrying about what's going on with our team than not. When things are not going right, there's going to be things written about you or said about you that you're not going to like, but that's part of being a professional athlete, especially in a market like this.'' - Center Mats Sundin after Toronto's fourth straight loss Tuesday night, 4-3 to Montreal in a shootout.
