Wild slow Hurricanes down to breeze

Posted: Monday, December 16, 2002

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Dwayne Roloson stopped 33 shots and just missed his second shutout of the season as the Minnesota Wild beat the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 on Sunday.

Roloson, Minnesota's back up goaltender behind Manny Fernandez, looked to be on his way to his ninth career shutout until Ron Francis scored Carolina's only goal with 7:07 left in the game.

Roloson, who turned away six shots after Francis' goal, is unbeaten in his last eight starts (5-0-3).

Coyotes 2, Kings 1

PHOENIX -- Branko Radivojevic scored a controversial goal with 7:03 remaining to lift Phoenix over Los Angeles.

Radivojevic one-timed a pass from Daniel Briere into Jamie Storr's pads from the left side of the crease, then raised his arms to celebrate a goal. Referee Tim Peel pointed to the net three times to confirm the goal, then waved the goal off, before finally signaling goal a second time.

Video reviews confirmed Peel's third call, even though the puck couldn't be seen on television replays after leaving Radivojevic's stick.

Mike Johnson also scored for the Coyotes, who have won two of their last three after going winless in 10 of their previous 11.

Mighty Ducks 5, Penguins 0

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jean-Sebastien Giguere made 19 saves for his franchise-record third consecutive shutout as Anaheim defeated Pittsburgh.

Andy McDonald scored twice, Mike Leclerc had a goal and three assists for the first four-point game of his career, and Matt Cullen had a career-high four assists for the Mighty Ducks, who extended their home undefeated streak to seven games.

Stars 5, Blackhawks 0

CHICAGO -- Marty Turco stopped 16 shots for his fifth shutout of the season, and Pierre Turgeon had a goal and an assist in Dallas' victory over Chicago.

Sergei Zubov, Aaron Downey, Darryl Sydor and Jere Lehtinen also scored for the Stars, who ended Chicago's four-game unbeaten streak (3-0-1).

Canucks 3, Flames 3

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Sami Salo scored a power-play goal with 4:51 left in regulation as Vancouver rallied for a tie with Calgary.

Markus Naslund scored his league-leading 21st goal and had an assist, and Todd Bertuzzi also had a goal and an assist for the Canucks, who had to come back despite taking two leads in the first period.

Scott Nichol scored his first goal of the season and added two assists for Calgary, which ended a two-game losing slide and is 2-2-2 under interim coach Al MacNeil. Bob Boughner and Craig Conroy also scored for the Flames.
