NHL ROUNDUP : Senators Still Winless on Road

From Associated Press

One minute 19 seconds.

That's all that stood between the Ottawa Senators and their first road victory of the season.

That and the Montreal Canadiens.

It proved to be too much.

Vincent Damphousse tied the game for the Canadiens at Montreal Saturday night with his second goal of the game with 1:19 to play.

Then Oleg Petrov banked one in off a skate 1:29 into overtime to give the Canadiens a 4-3 victory, dropping the Senators' road record to 0-35.

"A cheap goal like that," said Ottawa's Brad Marsh of Petrov's goal. "I wish we could get a cheap one once in a while.

Toronto 6, Edmonton 2--The victory at Edmonton made Toronto's record 40-25-10, giving the Maple Leafs 90 points for the first time since the 1977-78 season.

Dave Andreychuk scored his 51st and 52nd goals for Toronto.

Pittsburgh 5, Boston 3--Mario Lemieux says he's still out of shape after a month-long layoff, but that didn't stop him from scoring at Boston Garden.

Lemieux scored his 54th and 55th goals of the season in the Penguins' ninth victory in a row.

The loss ended Bruin goalie Andy Moog's winning streak at 10 games and his consecutive shutout streak at two.

Quebec 8, Philadelphia 3--The Nordiques won convincingly and shut down Eric Lindros at Quebec.

The only statistics for the Flyers' star rookie were two slashing penalties.

It was Lindros' second visit to Quebec. The Nordiques made him the NHL's first draft pick in 1991, but he refused to play for Quebec and was traded in June.

Lindros was roundly booed whenever he touched the puck.

Detroit 8, Tampa Bay 3--Steve Yzerman scored once and added three assists and Dino Ciccarelli had two goals and an assist as the Red Wings clinched a playoff spot and reclaimed the Norris Division lead at Tampa.

New Jersey 5, Washington 2--Alexander Semak and Bruce Driver each scored two goals at Landover, Md., as the Devils ended the Capitals' four-game winning streak.

N.Y. Islanders 7, San Jose 3--Pierre Turgeon and Brad Dalgarno led New York with two goals each at Uniondale, N.Y., handing the Sharks their ninth loss in a row.

San Jose is pointless in 12 games against Patrick Division teams this season.

Hartford 2, Minnesota 1--The North Stars are 1-6-1 since owner Norman Green's announcement that the franchise is moving to Dallas beginning next season.

Much of the credit for this victory at Bloomington must go to goalie Mario Gosselin (33 saves) and Zarley Zalapski, who had a shorthanded goal and an assist.
