    Goalie Roberto Luongo, playing his first game with Florida since 2006, led the Panthers to a 2-0 home victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

    The Calgary Flames came from behind to beat the New York Islanders 4-3, who frittered away a two-goal lead, for the second successive night.

    Pittsburgh centre Brandon Sutter scored on a backhander in the sixth round of a shootout, giving the Penguins a 3-2 road victory over the Anaheim Ducks.
