MONTREAL -- Jose Theodore recorded his second straight shutout, and Shaun Van Allen scored with 6:28 left in the second period to lead the Montreal Canadiens to a 1-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.

Theodore, who also held New Jersey scoreless in a 1-0 road win on Tuesday, stopped 30 shots for his sixth shutout of the season.

Blues 3, Oilers 1

ST. LOUIS -- Keith Tkachuk scored two goals as St. Louis made the most of a season-low 14 shots in a victory over Edmonton.

Dallas Drake also scored for the Blues, who got 27 saves from backup goalie Fred Brathwaite and won for the second time in six games.

Thrashers 3, Devils 3

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Ray Ferraro stuffed in a rebound with 2 seconds remaining and Atlanta rallied from a two-goal third-period deficit to tie New Jersey.

Jiri Slegr also scored in the period, when the Thrashers took eight shots at Martin Brodeur, one more than they had in the first two periods combined.

Kings 2, Hurricanes 1

LOS ANGELES -- Kelly Buchberger scored his 100th NHL goal early in the third period, and Mathieu Schneider scored in his first game back from the injured list as Los Angeles beat Carolina.

Felix Potvin made 17 saves for Los Angeles, which is 12-4-0 in its last 16 games. The victory lifted the Kings into sixth place in the Western Conference with 61 points, tying them with Edmonton.

Shane Willis scored a power-play goal at 9:21 of the second period for Carolina.
