UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Jose Theodore became the sixth goalie to score a goal in a regular-season game and stopped 32 shots as the Montreal Canadiens beat the Islanders 3-0 Tuesday.

Theodore got control of the puck behind his goal line and lifted a backhander that landed at center ice and slid into the middle of the vacated New York goal with nine seconds left. New Jersey's Martin Brodeur did it last on Feb. 15.

It was Theodore's first shutout this season, seventh career. Patrick Poulin scored his first two goals of the season for Montreal, which snapped a four-game losing streak.

SENATORS 3, BLUES 1: Andre Roy, goal-less since Feb. 1, scored as Ottawa ended a four-game losing streak.

Rob Zamuner scored the winner in the second period and Patrick Lalime stopped 33 shots, allowing Pierre Turgeon's 17th goal in the second period. The Senators ended their season-worst, six-game winless streak. St. Louis' five-game road winning streak was snapped.

DEVILS 1, FLYERS 1: John Madden took a backhand pass from Randy McKay and scored with 9:17 left in regulation for host New Jersey. As the final buzzer sounded, Devils captain Scott Stevens and Flyers veteran Mark Recchi exchanged swings.

COYOTES: Claude Lemieux said he has been assured by the league, owner Richard Burke and prospective owners Steve Ellman and Wayne Gretzky that the team will honor his contract for this season and exercise a $2-million bonus clause on Jan. 15. The forward signed a one-year contract for the minimum of $150,000 on Dec. 2 that included the bonus clause, put in to protect him if the sale wasn't completed by the end of 2000.

KINGS: Right wing Glen Murray, out since Nov. 18 with a strained right quadriceps muscle, came off injured reserve.

PANTHERS: The league suspended Len Barrie for two games for punching Toronto defenseman Bryan McCabe. Barrie punched McCabe as the center was being escorted by a linesman to the penalty box Saturday and was given a match penalty for attempt to injure.

HONORS: Pittsburgh forwards Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr were co-players of the week. Lemieux, who returned from a 31/2-year retirement, had two goals and five assists in two games. Jagr had four goals and four assists in three games. ... Thrashers right wing Donald Audette was named player of the month after his league-high 23 points.

Late Monday

SHARKS 3, COYOTES 2: Visiting San Jose won for only the second time in six games (2-3-1) as Vincent Damphousse had a goal and an assist.
