Outshot Panthers Sneak by Boston

MIAMI, Florida -- Ray Sheppard set up the first two Florida goals, and the Panthers went on to a 3-1 victory over Boston on a night that defenseman Ray Bourque tied the Bruins' all-time scoring record.


Bourque's short-handed goal in the second period tied forward John Bucyk's 30-year-old career record of 1,339 points. Bourque has 352 goals and 987 assists in 18 seasons.


The Panthers won despite being outshot 38-16, their fewest attempts of the season. Florida goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck stopped 37 shots for his fourth consecutive victory. Vanbiesbrouck (18-10-7) has stopped 119 of 124 shots in his last four games.


Canadiens 4, Lightning 1. In Tampa, Florida, Martin Rucinsky scored twice as the Montreal Canadiens snapped a four-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning.


The triumph was Montreal's first-ever at Tampa Bay after six losses and two ties. The Canadiens also moved into the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, 1 point ahead of Washington.


The Lightning, who have lost three straight, had their six-game home undefeated streak end. The Lightning were 3-0-3 in that span.


Blues 5, Senators 2. In Kanata, Ontario, Brett Hull extended his consecutive point streak to 11 games with a goal and two assists, and Pierre Turgeon had a goal and three assists as the St. Louis Blues defeated the Ottawa Senators 5-2.


Hull maintained his streak by assisting on Igor Kravchuk's fourth goal, 10 minutes 23 seconds into the first period, Geoff Courtnall's 13th with six minutes left in the game and by scoring at 8:35 into the third.


In 32 games under former Blues coach and general manager Mike Keenan, Hull had only 12 goals. In 19 games under new coach Joel Quenneville, Hull has 16.


Sharks 6, Flames 3. In Calgary, Alberta, Andrei Nazarov had two goals and two assists, and goaltender Ed Belfour won his first game for San Jose as the Sharks defeated the Calgary Flames 6-3.


Belfour made 30 saves to record the win after losing his first two starts since being acquired last Saturday from the Chicago Blackhawks in a four-player trade. Canucks 2, Islanders 1 OT. In Vancouver, British Columbia, Jyrki Lumme scored at 1:30 of overtime to lift the Vancouver Canucks to a 2-1 triumph over the New York Islanders.


The Canucks' defenseman scored the winner when he split a pair of Islanders and lifted a backhander over goalie Tommy Salo.
