  Hockey Today - Feb. 5 

Associated Press    


Detroit at N.Y. Rangers (7 p.m. EST). The Rangers host the Red Wings in the only game on the NHL scoreboard.


STAR

Sunday

-Sheldon Souray, Canadiens, scored 2:01 into overtime, giving Montreal a 4-3 win over Pittsburgh.

SNAPPED

Pittsburgh`s 4-3 overtime loss to Montreal on Sunday snapped the Penguins` six-game winning streak, their longest since 2002. Pittsburgh has recorded points in 10 straight games (8-0-2). The Penguins haven`t won as many as seven straight since a 10-game winning streak from Jan. 28 to Feb. 15, 1999.

DRY SPELL

Alex Ovechkin was held scoreless on just two shots in Washington`s 2-1 shootout win over the New York Islanders on Sunday, marking the first time this season he didn`t register a point in consecutive games. He failed to score Saturday in a 2-0 loss to Pittsburgh. Ovechkin has at least a point in 43 of the Capitals` 54 games.

SIDELINED

New York Islanders defenseman Radek Martinek broke his left leg and will be out four-to-six weeks, the team said Sunday. Martinek, who recently returned from a broken foot that sidelined him for nine games, was injured again Saturday in the Islanders` 4-2 victory at Montreal. The fifth-year player landed awkwardly on his left ankle when he bounced off the boards after absorbing the seemingly harmless check.

SUPER BOWL PARTY

Montreal began playing two afternoon games on Super Bowl weekend in 1990-91 and are 17-11-4 in those games, including Sunday`s 4-3 overtime win over Pittsburgh.

SPEAKING

``I grew up liking this team and there`s a reason they`re passionate fans. That`s how it goes. My like for the team`s probably changed since then.`` - Sidney Crosby, who was booed virtually every time he touched the puck in Pittsburgh`s 4-3 overtime loss to Montreal on Sunday.

Islanders defenseman Martinek out 4-to-6 weeks with broken leg  

Associated Press    
Sun, Feb 4, 2007

WASHINGTON -- New York Islanders defenseman Radek Martinek broke his left leg and will be out four-to-six weeks, the team said Sunday.

Martinek, who recently returned from a broken foot that sidelined him for nine games, was injured again Saturday in the Islanders` 4-2 victory at Montreal. The fifth-year player came off the ice on a stretcher in the first period after he was checked into the boards behind the Islanders net by Canadiens left wing Guillaume Latendresse.

Martinek landed awkwardly on his left ankle when he bounced off the boards after absorbing the seemingly harmless check. He was sitting up as he was taken off the ice on a stretcher.

The Islanders recalled defenseman Drew Fata from Bridgeport of the AHL and had him in the lineup Sunday during a 2-1 shootout loss to the Washington Capitals.

The Islanders face the Flyers on Wednesday.
