— Cory Schneider made 20 saves en route to his sixth NHL shutout, Mason Raymond scored in the first period, and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 on Saturday for their third straight victory.

The defending Stanley Cup champion Kings, coming off a 2-0 home loss to Dallas on Thursday in which they had 40 shots, were shut out for the third time this season.

Schneider has played the past three games for the Canucks, facing 88 shots and allowing only three goals. His other shutout this season was on Jan. 26 at Anaheim.

WILD 2, SHARKS 0

At St. Paul, Minn., Niklas Backstrom made 33 saves for his first shutout, and Ryan Suter had two more assists, leading Minnesota past San Jose for the Wild’s season-high fifth straight victory.

Zach Parise and Jared Spurgeon scored for Minnesota.

Backstrom swatted aside Andrew Desjardins’ penalty shot 3 minutes into the game.

SENATORS 5, LIGHTNING 3

At Ottawa, Jakob Silfverberg, Eric Gryba, Guillaume Latendresse and Daniel Alfredsson scored in a 7:01 span in the first period, and Ottawa held off Tampa Bay.

Alfredsson also had an empty-net goal in the final minute. Robin Lehner made 29 saves, and Marc Methot, who missed the last game because of a knee injury, and Kyle Turris each had two assists.

SABRES 2, CANADIENS 1

At Montreal, Thomas Vanek scored two goals to lead the Sabres.

Ryan Miller stopped 39 shots for Buffalo.

DEVILS 2, PANTHERS 1

At Newark, N.J., Travis Zajac set up two goals to lead New Jersey.

Patrik Elias and David Clarkson scored for New Jersey, and Martin Brodeur finished with 17 saves as the Devils won their second straight since the 40-year-old goalie returned to the lineup after being sidelined a month with a pinched nerve in his neck.
