Fredrik Modin had a goal and two assists to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 5-2 victory over the host Carolina Hurricanes last night.
Vincent Lecavalier and Brad Richards each added a goal and an assist for the Lightning, who have won three of their past four games. Vaclav Prospal also had an assist, pushing his points streak to 13 games.
Lecavalier put the Lightning ahead to stay with a power-play goal early in the second period, and Ruslan Fedotenko followed with an even-strength goal about two minutes later, pushing the lead to 3-1.
Justin Williams scored both goals for the Hurricanes, who lost for just the second time in 10 home games.
Williams -- who beat John Grahame on a breakaway opportunity at 1:27 of the second -- cut it to 3-2 when he scored on a penalty shot. After he was taken down by Dan Boyle on a Tampa Bay power play, Williams skated to his left and beat Grahame to the upper right corner of the net for the shorthanded goal.
Coyotes 5, Blue Jackets 1 -- Ladislav Nagy had a goal and two assists, and David LeNeveu made 23 saves to help Phoenix extend visiting Columbus's losing streak to five.
Mike Johnson scored his second goal in three games and Zbynek Michalek, Boyd Devereaux, and Geoff Sanderson also scored for the Coyotes, who won for the third time in four games.
Canucks 3, Mighty Ducks 2 -- Sami Salo scored his second goal of the game with 7:48 left to help Vancouver hand host Anaheim its record-tying eighth straight loss.
