BUFFALO, N.Y., Oct. 17 (UPI) -- Roberto Luongo made 25 saves in recording a shutout Thursday, carrying the Vancouver Canucks to a 3-0 victory over Buffalo.

It was Luongo's 63rd career shutout and came in his 754th appearance for the Canucks over 14 seasons.

The Sabres -- who have just one victory in their first nine games this season -- were shut out for the second time this season and have scored just once in five other games.

They were coming off their lone win of the season, a shootout decision over the New York Islanders on Tuesday.

Vancouver scored once in each period , the first goal coming from Chris Higgins with 5:07 to go in the opening stanza.

Brad Richardson had a shorthanded goal in the second period and Ryan Stanton tallied midway through the third.

Ryan Miller allowed all three goals on 34 shots.
