Roberto Luongo has 25 saves and Canucks shut out Sabres 3-0

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.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
