Wednesday's  NHL betting matchup notes

Carolina at N.Y. Rangers

The Rangers had won three straight against the Hurricanes before Ward shut them out in the most recent meeting.

Tampa Bay at Washington

Tampa Bay has only three road victories this season, but one of those rare road wins was in Washington on Nov. 10.

Atlanta at Columbus

The Thrashers have not played in Columbus since the Blue Jackets to a 4-2 win on Nov. 7, 2003. These teams' only meeting since that one came in Atlanta on Dec. 9, 2005, and the Thrashers won 5-2 to improve to 5-2-1 in this all-time series.

Ottawa at Buffalo

These teams have split two meetings this season, with each winning at home, after the Senators ousted the Sabres in five games in last season's conference finals.

Toronto at N.Y. Islanders

Toronto is 7-1-3 in its last 11 meetings with the Islanders.

Nashville at Chicago

Patrick Sharp has four goals and an assist during a three-game point streak, a run that started last Wednesday when he scored twice in Chicago's 5-2 win over Nashville.

Detroit at St. Louis

St. Louis has won four straight on home ice against Detroit.

Minnesota at Dallas

The Minnesota Wild will try to avoid their seventh straight road loss to the Stars, while Marty Turco is 9-4-1 with a 1.78 GAA in his career against the Wild.

San Jose at Los Angeles

Los Angeles beat the Sharks 3-2 in a shootout on Nov. 28 in the teams' last meeting, but are 2-10-1 since then. The Kings lost 4-3 at Nashville on Saturday and haven't lost eight straight since dropping its final 11 games in 2003-04.

Havlat hurt again, put on injured reserve for at least a week
December 26, 2007

CHICAGO (AP) -The Chicago Blackhawks put Martin Havlat on injured reserve for at least a week with a groin injury.

The right wing was hurt in the second period of the Blackhawks' 4-3 overtime win at Ottawa on Saturday. He did not play in Chicago's 3-2 home victory over Edmonton on Sunday.

Havlat missed 22 games earlier this season after injuring a shoulder in the Blackhawks' season opener at Minnesota. In 12 games this season, he has five goals and six assists.

The 26-year-old has never played an entire 82-game NHL schedule during seven seasons with Ottawa and Chicago.

Last season, his first with the Blackhawks, Havlat was limited to 56 games due to ankle, groin and shoulder injuries.

While with the Senators in 2005-06, Havlat played in 18 regular-season games due to shoulder surgery. In the playoffs, however, he had seven goals and six assists in 10 games.
