     Roberto Luongo passed Terry Sawchuk for fifth all-time in NHL history with his 448th career victory as the Florida Panthers blanked the New Jersey Devils 3-0 at Prudential Center on Monday night. It was the 73th career shutout for Luongo. The Panthers were able to sweep the season series against New Jersey(16-18-8) for the first time in franchise history.
     Florida(18-16-8) scored with 3:05 left in the first period on the power play. Reilly Smith got his eighth tally of the season with assists from Jussi Jokinen and Vincent Trocheck.
     In the third period, Jokinen would make it 2-0 as he put the puck into an empty net with 59.6 seconds remaining. Trocheck added another empty-net goal with 16 seconds to go.
