Shutout streak snaps

Posted: Monday, January 12, 2004

GLENDALE, Ariz. Brian Boucher's record shutout streak ended with a goal he had no chance of stopping.

Randy Robitaille's wrist shot glanced off the chest of Phoenix defenseman David Tanabe and into the Coyotes net for a power-play goal that ended Boucher's record string of five consecutive shutouts at 6:16 of the first period.

He was not scored upon for 332 minutes, 1 second and had 146 saves in that span a modern-day NHL record.

Daymond Langkow tied it for Phoenix at 6:21 of the third period.

Boucher finished with 20 saves. Atlanta's Byron Dafoe stopped 40 shots.

Avalanche 5, Blackhawks 4 (OT)

CHICAGO Alex Tanguay scored 3:42 into overtime to lift Colorado.

Karlis Skrastins and John-Michael Liles scored in the third period for the Avalanche, who trailed 3-0 after the first.

Steve Moore and Milan Hejduk also scored for the Avalanche, 6-0-0-1 in their last seven games. Hejduk scored on a second period penalty shot, the first of his career.

Mark Bell had two goals for Chicago, 5-16-4-5 in its last 30 games.

Scott Nichol and Tuomo Ruutu also scored for the Blackhawks.

Blue Jackets 2, Mighty Ducks 2

ANAHEIM, Calif. Rick Nash scored his NHL-leading 25th goal of the season with 5:23 left in the third period, giving Columbus a tie.

Anaheim defenseman Todd Simpson gave the Ducks a 2-1 lead 7:44 into the third for his third goal in three games. Simpson had only 10 goals in 502 NHL games before starting the unexpected scoring streak.

The Ducks are winless in six games (0-3-3), a season high.

Lightning 2, Rangers 1 (OT)

NEW YORK Jassen Cullimore scored 2:03 into overtime Sunday to lift the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers.

Alex Kovalev gave New York a 1-0 lead 4:06 into the game with his eighth goal. Tampa Bay tied it 1-1 on Dan Boyle's third goal at 6:37.

Senators 2, Hurricanes 2

RALEIGH, N.C. Eric Cole broke a 26-game scoring drought when he netted the tying goal with 3:29 left in regulation, lifting Carolina into a draw.

Marian Hossa scored twice for the Senators, and Eric Staal had the other goal for the Hurricanes.

Kevin Weekes made 38 saves for the Hurricanes.

While Ottawa was 2-for-5 on the power play, Carolina continued to struggle with the man advantage going 0-for-5. Carolina, outshot 40-20, didn't record a shot until 10 minutes elapsed.

Capitals 1, Oilers 0

WASHINGTON Olaf Kolzig made 26 saves for his first shutout of the season, and the 32nd of his career, and Robert Lang scored the game's only goal.

The host Capitals have won two straight for the second time this season, the first time at home.

Canucks 2, Panthers 2

VANCOUVER, British Columbia Henrik Sedin scored with 6:26 left to complete Vancouver's rally from a two-goal deficit in the third period and lift the Canucks into a 2-2 tie Sunday night with the Florida Panthers.

After a wild sequence in the Florida end, Henrik cut toward the top of the crease and one-timed a pass from twin brother Daniel through a crowd and past Steve Shields. It was Henrik's fifth goal of the season, and fourth in seven games as he extended his point streak to five games.
