BUFFALO, N.Y. - Roberto Luongo made 25 saves and the Vancouver Canucks shut out the Buffalo Sabres 3-0 on Thursday night.

Brad Richardson, Chris Higgins and Ryan Stanton scored for the Canucks (5-3-0), who are off to their best start since opening 2005 at 6-1-1.

Luongo was tested with 11 shots in the third period before finishing his first shutout since Feb. 22 at Nashville.

The Sabres (1-7-1) remain winless at home this season and were again booed off the ice after the second period in what's become a familiar refrain.

Even louder were the "Fire Darcy" chants in reference to Sabres general manager Darcy Regier that came after Vancouver's third goal.
