The NHL roundup …
RALEIGH ó Now that the Atlanta Thrashers are winning games on the road and against the Carolina Hurricanes, maybe they can make a run toward the playoffs.
Tim Stapleton scored 1:38 into overtime to help the Thrashers to a 3-2 victory that snapped two streaks ó a six-game road winless streak and a four-game losing skid to the Hurricanes.
Canadiens 3, Penguins 0
PITTSBURGH ó Carey Price made 26 saves for his eighth shutout of the season and 12th overall in the Montreal Canadiens’ 3-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Maple Leafs 4, Sabres 3
TORONTO ó Mikhail Grabovski and Phil Kessel scored in a 2:33 span early in the third period and rookie James Reimer made a jaw-dropping save on Tomas Vanek in the period in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ 4-3 comeback victory over the Buffalo Sabres.
Clarke MacArthur and Tyler Bozak also scored to help Toronto end a three-game slide and move back within four points of the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.
Panthers 4, Lightning 3
SUNRISE, Fla. ó Jason Garrison scored with 16 seconds left in overtime to lift the Florida Panthers to a 4-3 victory against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

NEWARK, N.J. ó Anssi Salmela scored his first goal of the season 3:09 into overtime to keep the New Jersey Devils’ playoff drive another boost with a 3-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Saturday night.
