VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 2 (UPI) -- Roberto Luongo made 28 saves in his third shutout of the season Wednesday, sending the Vancouver Canucks to a 2-0 decision over St. Louis.
The Canucks snapped a two-game skid, with both of those losses having come in overtime. They boosted their NHL-best point total to 90 in the first contest of a seven-game home stand and have a massive 20-point lead over Colorado in the Northwest Division.
Luongo got the best of a goaltending duel with Brian Elliott, who took a shutout into the third period. It was the 58th blanking of Luongo's 12-year career.
St. Louis, which would have moved past Vancouver at the top of the NHL standings with a victory, had won four in a row.
