Ottawa First to Reach the Century Mark

From Associated Press

Ottawa's Jason Spezza scored two goals, and Wade Redden had a goal and an assist, and the Senators became the first team to reach 100 points with a 6-5 victory over Carolina at Raleigh, N.C., on Tuesday.

The Eastern Conference's highest-scoring team needed all it could get after another shaky performance by Patrick Lalime, who made 20 saves.

Lalime has given up 14 goals in the last three games.

Radim Vrbata scored twice for Carolina, and Jeff O'Neill scored a goal and set up rookie Damian Surma for his first NHL goal.

New Jersey 1, Montreal 0 -- Martin Brodeur made 25 saves for his eighth shutout this season, and Scott Gomez scored a power-play goal in the first period at Montreal.

Buffalo 5, Philadelphia 2 -- Maxim Afinogenov scored the tiebreaking goal midway through the second period at Buffalo, N.Y.

Sabre Coach Lindy Ruff passed Scotty Bowman with a franchise-record 211th victory.

Detroit 5, Pittsburgh 1 -- Sergei Fedorov scored twice in the third period and Brendan Shanahan had a goal and two assists at Pittsburgh.

The Penguins are winless in 13 games (0-12-1).

New York Islanders 3, Toronto 3 -- Dave Scatchard scored the Islanders' third goal of the third period with 2:35 left in regulation to tie the score at Toronto.

Owen Nolan scored twice for the Maple Leafs, who couldn't hold leads of 2-0 and 3-2. Nolan has five goals in five games since being acquired from San Jose on March 5.

St. Louis 6, Vancouver 4 -- Peter Cajanek and Eric Boguniecki scored 40 seconds apart in the third period, leading the Blues at St. Louis.

Phoenix 2, Boston 1 -- Ladislav Nagy scored his third goal in two games and had an assist at Phoenix.
