Niemi makes 52 saves, Canadiens stop Panthers 5-1

MONTREAL (AP) Antti Niemi made a career-high 52 saves and the Montreal Canadiens extended their winning streak to three games with a 5-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Shea Weber, Phillip Danault, Max Domi, Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Brendan Gallagher scored for Montreal in the second of back-to-back games. The Canadiens were coming off a 3-2 overtime victory in Boston on Monday.

Mike Hoffman scored in the first period for the Panthers, who have dropped seven consecutive games, their longest skid of the season. Florida's last victory was on Dec. 31, against the Detroit Red Wings.
