Canucks 2, Devils 1
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Cory Schneider had 30 saves and Aaron Rome and Mason Raymond scored for Vancouver. The win came a night after the Canucks ended the Detroit Red Wings' NHL-record 23-game home winning streak.
The Canucks didn't arrive in New Jersey until 3:30 a.m. because of snow-related delays in Detroit. They weren't at their best, but still won for the ninth time (9-1-1) in 11 games. Schneider and a couple of unexpected goal scorers were the difference in handing New Jersey only its third loss since the All-Star break. The Devils are 9-2-1 since the break.
David Clarkson scored for the Devils on a play in which the puck deflected into the net off his skate. After a review, officials upheld the score.
Schneider was outstanding in winning for the 14th time in 19 decisions as Roberto Luongo's backup.
Sabres 2, Bruins 1, SO
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- Derek Roy scored the decisive shootout goal in lifting the Sabres.
Ryan Miller made 35 saves through regulation and stopped three of four shootout attempts in helping the Sabres improve to 3-0-1 in their past four games. Andrej Sekera scored for the Sabres, who are 8-3-2 in their past 13 games.
Zdeno Chara scored the tying goal 3:36 into the third period as the Bruins salvaged a point. Coming off a 4-2 win at St. Louis on Wednesday, Boston dropped to 8-9-2 in its past 19 games, a stretch in which it has failed to win consecutive games.
The Bruins were not called for a penalty for the first time since 2004.
Stars 4, Wild 1
DALLAS (AP) -- Tom Wandell scored twice, Kari Lehtonen stopped 28 shots, and the Stars stretched their winning streak to three games. Loui Eriksson and Eric Nystrom added goals for the Stars, who improved to 68 points.
Wandell scored the game's first goal, and added an empty-netter at 19:07 of the third.
Dallas is eighth in the Western Conference, three points behind Phoenix.
The Stars earned their 1,500th victory in Minnesota-Dallas franchise history, 742 coming since the team moved to Texas in 1993. Dallas has won 16 in a row at home against the Wild, with Minnesota's last road victory over the Stars coming on March 21, 2003.
The Wild has fallen out of the top eight in the West with a 2-6-2 slide.
