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

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
