Flames Sink Devils
(Newark, NJ) -- Mark Giordano scored the game-winner early in the third period on a power play to lift the Flames to a 1-0 victory against the Devils in New Jersey. Karri Ramo picked up his second career shutout with 31 saves for Calgary, which has won three straight. Cory Schneider stopped 21 shots in net for New Jersey, which had won two in-a-row. The Devils are three points out of the postseason with three games to play. The teams combined to go 1-for-8 on the power play.
Bryzgalov Leads Wild Past Jets
(Winnipeg, Manitoba) -- Ilya Bryzgalov stopped all 24 shots he faced to lead the Wild in a 1-0 win over the Jets from MTS Centre. It's Bryzgalov's fourth shutout of the season and the 34th of his career. Charlie Coyle broke the scoreless tie early in the second period with his 12th goal of the year. Minnesota has won four out of five and has a firm grasp on the West's top Wild Card spot with 94 points, but has yet to clinch a playoff spot. Michael Hutchinson made 16 saves for Winnipeg, which has dropped four of its last six.
Ducks Blank Canucks
(Vancouver, British Columbia) -- John Gibson posted a shutout in his NHL debut to help the Ducks drop the Canucks 3-0 at Rogers Arena. He made 18 saves for Anaheim, which leads the Pacific Division by three points and trails St. Louis by one for the top spot in the West. The Ducks snapped a two-game slide. Daniel Winnik, Kyle Palmieri and Matt Beleskey all scored in the win. Eddie Lack stopped 20 attempts for Vancouver, which was officially eliminated from the postseason. The Canucks have lost four of five.
Blackhawks Host Canadiens Wednesday
