A first for Tokarski

 

A day after being called up from AHL Hamilton, Dustin Tokarski made 29 saves to earn his first career shutout in the Montreal Canadiens’ 2-0 win over the injury-depleted Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night in Buffalo, N.Y. “It felt pretty good. I’m not going to lie,” Tokarski, a former Spokane Chiefs standout, said. “The main thing is the two points going down the stretch here for this hockey team, and just a little icing on the cake with the shutout, I guess.” The shutout was certainly timely for a Canadiens team coming off an emotional high following a 5-4 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. It was a game in which Montreal became the NHL’s first team to win by overcoming a three-goal deficit with less than 5 minutes remaining. – Associated Press
