ATLANTA (AP) -Mike Knuble, Simon Gagne and Joffrey Lupul each scored two goals and the Philadelphia Flyers earned their 11th straight win over the Atlanta Thrashers, 7-0 Tuesday night.
The Flyers won their third consecutive game overall after a sluggish 0-3-3 start.
Antero Niittymaki stopped 24 shots in his fourth career shutout and improved to 10-0 against the Thrashers. Knuble, who made it 2-0 at 3:13 of the second period, has four goals in three games and seven points in the last five.
TORONTO (AP) - Vincent Lecavalier scored a pair of highlight-reel goals and Mike Smith made 37 saves to lead Tampa Bay over Toronto.
Jussi Jokinen also scored, and No. 1 overall draft pick Steven Stamkos earned his first NHL point for the Lightning.
Matt Stajan and Mike Van Ryn scored for the Maple Leafs (3-3-3), who played well but had their two-game winning streak end.
MONTREAL (AP) - Saku Koivu scored a shootout goal and Carey Price stopped all three shots in the tiebreaker to lift Montreal past Carolina. Koivu beat Cam Ward with a backhand on Montreal's second attempt. Price stopped Matt Cullen, Eric Staal and Ray Whitney to seal the win.
Alex Tanguay scored on a penalty shot in the final seconds of the first period and Price stopped 31 shots for Montreal, which closed out a 4-1 homestand despite falling to Anaheim on Saturday in the team's first regulation loss of the season.
Alex Kovalev also scored for Montreal.
Cullen and Anton Babchuk had goals for the Hurricanes, who fell to 2-2-1 on their longest road trip of the season, a six-game stretch that ends Thursday in St. Louis.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Michael Nylander scored the pivotal goal in a shootout, and Washington generated enough firepower to overcome the absence of Alex Ovechkin and beat Nashville.
Alexander Semin scored as Washington's second shooter before Ville Koistinen tied it on Nashville's third try at Jose Theodore. Nylander then beat Dan Ellis, and Theodore denied Martin Erat.
Ovechkin, the NHL leading scorer and most valuable player last season, left for Russia on Monday to be with his ailing grandfather. It was the second game he has made in his career.
Jason Arnott scored two goals and Koistinen had one for the Predators, who never led.
Semin put Washington up 3-2 with 18:02 left in regulation, scoring a power-play goal. Arnott tied it with 6:36 remaining.
