before allowing a power-play goal to Randy Robitaille 6:16
into the first period of Sunday's 1-1 tie with the Atlanta
The 27-year-old Boucher entered the season with seven
shutouts in 148 career games. He is 6-0-4 since a 1-0 setback
at Atlanta on November 23 and on Monday was named the NHL's
Defensive Player of the Week for the second straight time.
Boucher made 146 saves during the streak, which is the
third-longest in NHL history.
Daymond Langkow scored for the third time in four games at 6:21
of the third period Sunday to stretch Phoenix's unbeaten streak
to six games (5-0-1). Prior to that stretch, the Coyotes lost
two of three contests, with Sean Burke in the nets.
The Canucks posted consecutive wins before Sunday's 2-2 tie with
the Florida Panthers. Defenseman Mattias Ohlund and Henrik
Sedin scored third-period goals for Vancouver. Ohlund had
committed a turnover late in the first period, leading to
Florida's first goal.
Vancouver is 4-0-2 in the last six meetings with Phoenix,
including a win and a tie in two matchups this season.
