NHL ROUNDUP : Florida Goalie Vanbiesbrouck Notches a Satisfying Victory

March 15, 1994|From Associated Press

Florida goaltender John Vanbiesbrouck got his second victory in four tries against his former team, the New York Rangers, making 27 saves in the Panthers' 2-1 victory Monday night at Miami. Vanbiesbrouck spent his first 11 seasons with the Rangers before being traded to Vancouver and subsequently being selected by the Florida Panthers in the expansion draft.

The victory moved the Panthers within one point of the eighth-place Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern Conference.

"I'd be lying if I said it wasn't extra special," said Vanbiesbrouck, who made 10 saves in the third period to protect the lead.

Montreal 5, Boston 4--Goaltender Patrick Roy stopped Glen Murray and Glen Wesley on breakaways, and that helped the Canadiens come from behind to beat the Bruins at Montreal.

The Canadiens, after trailing 3-0, scored five goals in less than 19 minutes beginning late in the second period.

Quebec 5, Chicago 1--Scott Young and Mats Sundin each scored one goal and added two assists at Quebec as the Nordiques snapped the Blackhawks' six-game unbeaten streak.
