Hockey Today

SCOREBOARD Sunday, Jan. 20


Anaheim at Dallas (3:30 p.m. EST). The Ducks and Stars are battling for first place in the Pacific Division.

CROSBY CRASHES

Pittsburgh star Sidney Crosby sprained his ankle while crashing into the rear boards leg-first midway through the first period of Friday night's 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay, and will be sidelined for an indefinite period of time. The injury is more serious than the traditional twisted ankle and can sideline an athlete for a month or more. Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has been out since Dec. 6 with the same injury.

ERASING 10 WITH 10

Buffalo ended a 10-game winless skid by pounding Atlanta 10-1 on Friday night. The Sabres came within two games of tying a franchise-record 12-game winless stretch set in 1991 and matched in 2002. Buffalo scored its most goals this season after producing just 16 times during the winless stretch.

EXCLUSIVE CLUB

Florida's Jacques Martin became the 10th coach in NHL history to reach 500 victories after the Panthers rallied for a 2-1 win at New Jersey on Friday night. He is tied for ninth on the all-time list with Toe Blake.

BIG DIFFERENCE

Anaheim is 12-2-2 since luring defenseman Scott Niedermayer out of semiretirement and trading for veteran center Doug Weight after beating Minnesota 4-2 on Friday night.

ON TOP

Carolina snapped its season-worst four-game losing streak and vaulted back into first place in the Southeast Division after a 7-2 rout of Edmonton on Friday night. ... Calgary moved into first place in the Northwest Division after its 6-1 win over Los Angeles. The Flames have picked up points in 11 of their last 12 home games.

SIDELINED

Chicago forward Jason Williams will be out at least six weeks after surgery Friday to repair a sports hernia. Williams scored seven goals, including two game-winners.

SPEAKING

''There is no team that can deal with losing the best player in the league. He is the heart of the team and he is our leader. We are going to face adversity and we are going to have to battle through it.'' - Pittsburgh coach Michel Therrien after losing star center Sidney Crosby to a sprained ankle during Friday night's 3-0 loss to Tampa Bay.
