Maple Leafs 6, Panthers 0

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Toronto scored three goals in the first 4:11 of the second period, and Ed Belfour made 33 saves for his sixth shutout of the season.

Wild 2, Blackhawks 1

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota's Dwayne Roloson stopped 21 shots, and Wes Walz scored the game-winning goal in the second period.

Marian Gaborik, fresh off notching a goal and two assists in last weekend's All-Star break, came up empty on four shots, including a penalty shot in the first period.

Blues 2, Stars 2

DALLAS -- Bill Guerin scored with 1:30 left in regulation, and the Dallas Stars pulled out a tie against the St. Louis Blues to maintain a share of the NHL's best record.

Guerin's 23rd goal came after Mike Modano gathered a loose puck on the left side and made cross-ice pass to Sergei Zubov. He fed Guerin charging the middle for the tying goal in the battle of division leaders.

Oilers 2, Mighty Ducks 1

EDMONTON, Alberta -- Rookies Alex Hemsky and Fernando Pisani scored less than three minutes apart in the third period as the Edmonton Oilers rallied past the Anaheim Mighty Ducks.
