Valeri Bure scored twice, including the game-winner, as Calgary beat Nashville, 5-4, last night to give the Flames an NHL-record ninth overtime victory of the season.

Calgary improved its overtime record to 9-1-5, breaking the NHL record of eight victories set by Winnipeg in 1987-88.

Marc Savard set up the winning goal 3 minutes 6 seconds into the extra session, breaking into the Predators zone and passing across to Bure, who beat goalie Mike Dunham for his 24th goal of the season.

Nashville appeared to take a 5-4 lead with 2:52 left in the third period when Cliff Ronning fired a shot from the high slot past Fred Brathwaite. But referee Bill McCreary ruled that Sergei Krivoskrasov interfered with Brathwaite.

* THRASHERS 3, PANTHERS 3: Yannick Tremblay scored a short-handed goal with 4:14 seconds remaining in the third period and Norm Maracle made 37 saves, giving Atlanta a tie at home.

Florida's Pavel Bure scored his 299th career goal with 8:48 left in regulation for a short-lived 3-2 lead. But Bure, trying to become the seventh-fastest player in NHL history to reach 300 goals, was stopped twice in overtime on brilliant saves.

The Thrashers lost all-star defenseman Petr Buzek with a groin strain in the second period. He did not return.

* DEVILS 4, ISLANDERS 0: Patrick Elias extended his scoring streak to a team-record 13 games, scoring twice and adding an assist for New Jersey in East Rutherford, N.J.

Elias has 14 goals and eight assists during the streak, and has 19 goals in his last 20 games. He broke the franchise record of 12 games set by Aaron Broten in 1984-85 and matched by Pat Verbeek in 1987-88 and Scott Stevens in 1993-94.

The Devils have won four straight to improve to 11-1-2 in their last 14 games.

Martin Brodeur made 31 saves for his NHL-high 29th victory. He has three shutouts this season and 39 in his career.

* BLUES 3, BLACKHAWKS 0: Roman Turek stopped 11 shots for his fourth shutout of the season as St. Louis won on the road.

The Blackhawks tied a team record for fewest shots in a game, set April 18, 1998, in Dallas. St. Louis, which launched 37 shots on Jocelyn Thibault, narrowly missed setting a team record for fewest shots allowed. The club record is nine, set March 4, 1999, against Toronto.

* AVALANCHE 3, MIGHTY DUCKS 3: Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne scored in the same game for the first time in their last 31 appearances together as host Anaheim earned a tie on Selanne's goal with 1:40 remaining.
