NHL Roundup: Carolina falls

Associated Press
NEWARK, N.J. ó Andy Greene scored consecutive goals, the first two-goal game of the defenseman’s career, and surging New Jersey beat Carolina 4-2 Wednesday night.
Patrik Elias and Rob Niedermayer also scored for the Devils, who have won four straight and seven of eight. Martin Brodeur made 21 saves and remained tied with Terry Sawchuk for the NHL career shutout record (103).

Sabres 3, Capitals 0
BUFFALO, N.Y. ó Ryan Miller made 35 saves for his 16th career shutout, Nathan Gerbe scored his first NHL goal, and the Buffalo Sabres halted Washington’s six-game winning streak with a 3-0 victory over the league-leading Capitals.
