WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) - Al Montoya made 27 saves and led the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres Tuesday night.
Keaton Ellerby, Jacob Trouba and Anthony Peluso provided all the offense necessary for Montoya, who earned his second shutout of the season. Winnipeg tied a season best with its third straight win.
Montoya (8-2-1), making his second straight start after relieving No. 1 goalie Ondrej Pavelec in the first period of a game last week against Minnesota, has won six consecutive decisions.
Sabres backup Jhonas Enroth got his 12th start of the season and handed the Jets (19-18-5) the lead when a weak point shot from Ellerby got past his blocker in the first period.
The Sabres (11-25-4) thought they had tied it when Marcus Foligno banged the puck past Montoya, but the net was dislodged before the puck went in.
