Habs nab shootout win over Isles

NEW YORK—After his team's first four skaters in the shootout couldn't beat goalie Thomas Greiss, Montreal Canadiens' coach Claude Julien decided to go with the right-handed Joel Armia instead of Charles Hudon.

The move paid off.

Armia scored in the fifth round on the first shootout attempt of his career to give the Canadiens a 4-3 win over the N.Y. Islanders last night.

Raptors use fast start to beat Lakers

LOS ANGELES—Serge Ibaka outscored the Lakers by himself in the first quarter and he didn't miss a shot until the third.

He beat L.A. inside and outside on the way to the biggest offensive game of his career.

Thanks to Ibaka's brilliance for the Toronto Raptors, Kawhi Leonard wasn't missed by anyone except the Lakers' fans who might have been hoping to entice him home.
