The Buffalo Sabres improved to 10-0 on the road this season, getting a go-ahead goal from Adam Mair in the third period to beat the Hurricanes, 7-4, last night at Raleigh, N.C.
The Sabres extended their NHL record for most consecutive road wins at the start of a season.
After losing to the Hurricanes in the Eastern Conference finals last season, Buffalo has beaten Carolina all three times they've played this season.
Rod BrindAmour tied it at 3 for Carolina at 6:23 in the third period, but Buffalo took control on goals by Mair, Derek Roy, and Paul Gaustad in a six-minute stretch.
The Sabres took advantage of three early Carolina penalties to grab the early lead. Thomas Vanek scored at 8:57 of the first period, Jason Pominville scored at 12:02, and Jochen Hecht made it 3-0 with 21 seconds left in the period.
Justin Williams started Carolina's comeback, scoring his seventh goal with 8:45 left in the second period. Williams's goal was reviewed because he crashed into goaltender Martin Biron, who started his fourth straight in place of the injured Ryan Miller.
Biron, now 6-0 this season, stopped 31 of 35 shots.
Canadiens 5, Senators 3 -- Guillaume Latendresse scored power-play goals 31 seconds apart in the third period to lift visiting Montreal.
Latendresse, a 19-year-old rookie, scored his second goal of the season 2:01 into the final period on a 5-on-3 advantage to put Montreal ahead, 2-1.
He added his second of the game -- his third goal and fourth point in three games since joining Saku Koivu and Michael Ryder on the Canadiens' top line -- at 2:32 when he deflected Sheldon Souray's shot from the point past Martin Gerber to make it 4-1.
Capitals 4, Panthers 1 -- Dainius Zubrus scored two goals and Olaf Kolzig stopped 44 shots as Washington triumphed in Sunrise, Fla.
Alexander Ovechkin and Matt Pettinger also scored for Washington. Ovechkin has six goals in his last five games.
Nathan Horton scored for the Panthers, who have lost four in a row.
Penguins 3, Flyers 2 -- Evgeni Malkin scored with 2:03 to play to help host Pittsburgh snap a five-game losing streak.
Sidney Crosby and Jordan Staal also scored for the Penguins, who beat the Flyers for the third time this season.
Malkin one-timed a pass from Mark Recchi in the high left slot and fired a slap shot over Flyers goalie Antero Niittymaki's right shoulder just under the cross bar. Crosby picked up the assist.
Kings 4, Sharks 2 -- Dustin Brown scored the go-ahead goal on a power play with 3:10 left in the third period and Alexander Frolov had two goals (one an empty-netter) and an assist to spark host Los Angeles.
Milan Michalek and Joe Thornton scored for the Sharks.
Oilers 2, Avalanche 1 -- Ryan Smyth scored twice in a 1:53 span in the second period -- including Edmonton's first shorthanded goal of the season -- and Dwayne Roloson had 32 saves to lead the Oilers at Denver.
It was Smyth's 11th and 12th goals of the season.
