-Kyle Calder, Predators, scored and had two assists as Detroit defeated NHL-leading Nashville 5-2.

MILESTONE

Dallas' Mike Modano became the 39th player in NHL history and second born in the United States to reach 500 goals Tuesday night, scoring with 10:24 left in the third period of a 3-2 victory over Philadelphia.

MISSED OPPORTUNITY

The Rangers, who led 2-0 in each of their last five losses, sustained their 21st one-goal loss, 3-2 to Ottawa on Tuesday night. The Senators improved to 10-1-4 in their last 15 games, while New York dropped from 8th to 11th in the Eastern Conference.

SWEEP

The Maple Leafs swept the four-game season series against Tampa Bay with a 3-2 victory Tuesday night. The Lightning have just two wins in their last 16 visits to Toronto.

PROTECTING LEADS

Carolina improved to 21-0-2 when leading after the first period following Tuesday night's 3-2 victory over Florida. ... The Islanders fell to 25-1-4 when ahead after two periods after losing to Montreal 5-3.

STREAKING

Ottawa's Dany Heatley extended his points streak to 15 games (11 goals, 11 assists) with two assists in a 3-2 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday night. Teammate Jason Spezza recorded a point in his 14th straight game (eight goals, 16 assists). ... Minnesota, which beat Vancouver 3-2, has won four straight for the first time since opening the season with a six-game streak.

STEPPING UP

Rookie Andrei Kostitsyn, who had three total assists coming in, matched that in the third period of Montreal's 5-3 victory over the Islanders on Tuesday night.

SIDELINED

Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro left Tuesday's game with an apparent head injury after a first-period collision with Montreal's Steve Begin. The Canadiens won 5-3, scoring all five goals against backup Mike Dunham.

STAYING PUT

The Penguins and government officials ended months of difficult negotiations, agreeing to a $290 million arena deal that ensures the team will stay in Pittsburgh. Keys to the agreement included the government waiving up-front money from the team, the Penguins receiving about $10 million compensation for delays, and the sides agreeing to share responsibility for cost overruns.

SPEAKING

''I stopped counting goals a little while ago. When you're 36, you look at the wins. You want to be one of those top eight teams to get a chance to compete for the championship.'' - Mats Sundin, who scored his 388th goal as a Maple Leaf in a 3-2 victory over Tampa Bay on Tuesday night, leaving him one short of tying Darryl Sittler for the franchise record.

Islanders G DiPietro injured in collision with Canadiens' Begin
Tue, Mar 13, 2007
By Associated Press

MONTREAL -- New York Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro left Tuesday's game with an apparent head injury after a first-period collision with Montreal's Steve Begin.

DiPietro and Begin both fell to the ice after the Islanders goalie was hit on the right side of his mask by the Canadiens forward's right skate when he lunged forward to win a race to the puck just inside New York's blue line.

Begin grimaced in pain and had to be helped off the ice while DiPietro lay still on his back as he was being attended to by Islanders trainer Garrett Timms.

The goalie removed his mask and looked groggy as he was helped off the ice, passing backup Mike Dunham - who replaced him 15:41 into the opening period - in the hallway leading to the dressing room.

DiPietro, who entered with a 2.60 goals-against-average, a .918 save percentage and a 30-19-7 record, was making his 58th appearance of the season.

The Islanders led 1-0 on captain Alexei Yashin's first goal since he returned to New York's lineup Thursday after missing 14 games because of a knee injury.
