There were four Canadian NHL teams in action on Saturday night. Here's a quick look at how they fared:

3 short-handed goals lift Sens over Habs

​For the fourth time the franchise's history, the Ottawa Senators scored three short-handed goals in a 5-0 rout of the Montreal Canadiens.

Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Curtis Lazar, and Alex Chiasson each scored on the man-disadvantage and Andrew Hammond stopped 30 shots for this first shutout of the season.

Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban missed his fourth straight game due to a neck injury.

Leafs blow away Sabres

The Toronto Maple Leafs scored a trio of goals in the third period along the way to a 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres. 

William Nylander found the back of the net for Toronto and also registered his first two-point game by adding an assist on Connor Carrick's go-ahead goal. 

Buffalo was without rookie Jack Eichel who missed his first game of the season with the flu. 

Canucks shut out by Blues

Brian Elliott and the St. Louis Blues handed the Vancouver Canucks their fourth straight loss in a 3-0 game at Rogers Arena.

Ryan Miller still managed to make 47 saves for the Canucks, who were also shut out in Edmonton on Friday.
