SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) - Dominic Moore scored the only shootout goal and Dan Ellis stopped all three Florida shooters in the Tampa Bay Lightning's 2-1 victory over the Panthers on Friday night.

The goal withstood a video review to determine whether Moore hit the puck twice while deking Tomas Vokoun.

Ellis made 30 saves in regulation and overtime, then stopped Mike Santorelli, Michael Frolik and Stephen Weiss before Moore scored on the Lightning's third attempt.

Steve Downie scored in regulation for Southeast Division-leading Tampa Bay, which has won three in a row.

Cory Stillman scored for the Panthers.

Vokoun stopped Vincent Lecavalier on a penalty shot with 1:05 left in overtime. Lecavalier was awarded the shot when he was tripped from behind by defenseman Bryan Allen.

Earlier in overtime, Ellis made a great pad save on Dennis Wideman's one-timer.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Michael Grabner scored twice and rookie goalies Nathan Lawson and Kevin Poulin combined to stop 36 shots for New York.

Matt Moulson, Jack Hillen and P.A. Parenteau also scored in the game the Islanders led 4-0 before Buffalo's Nathan Gerbe scored goals 5 seconds apart late in the third period.

Gerbe set a franchise record for the fastest goals by one player. His first goal, on a backhander from the right circle, came with 3:22 left. He then scored on a wrist shot.

The 5-second span matched Pete Mahovlich for the third-fastest goals by a player in NHL history. Mahovlich did for Montreal in 1971. The record is 4 seconds, set by the Montreal Maroons' Nels Stewart in 1931 and matched by Winnipeg's Deron Quint in 1995.

Lawson made 10 saves in the first period, before leaving because of a left knee injury.

OTTAWA (AP) - Tomas Plekanec scored twice and Max Pacioretty and Andrei Kostitsyn each had a goal and an assist in Montreal's victory over Ottawa.

Benoit Pouliot, Brian Gionta and P.K. Subban also scored and Carey Price made 33 saves to help the Canadiens improve to 7-1-2 in their last 10 games. Chris Kelly scored for Ottawa. The Senators are 0-4-1 in their last five and have lost six in a row at home.
