SNOWED OUT

Avalanche captain Joe Sakic, already out with back problems, broke three fingers on his left hand when he tried to clear snow from a snow blower at his home and will be out at least three months. Colorado announced Sakic had surgery Tuesday night for the broken fingers, which included tendon damage in one of them. Team doctor Andy Parker said the procedure went well and that Sakic is expected to make a full recovery.

SWEET RETURN

Olli Jokinen notched two goals for the Coyotes in a 5-3 win over the Stars after being activated off the injured list. Jokinen had missed six games due to a shoulder injury.

INJURIES

Montreal defenseman Mathieu Dandenault had surgery on his left arm, which was broken when he was hit along the boards during a game against Calgary on Tuesday night. He will be out indefinitely.

POWER OUTAGE

Ottawa had a 5-on-3 advantage for 64 seconds in the opening period of its 2-0 loss to Chicago, but managed only one shot and finished the game 0-for-6 on the power play. … The Rangers failed on their only power-play attempt in a 3-2 overtime victory over Atlanta, dropping New York to 3-for-31 with a man advantage over the last nine games.

BY THE NUMBERS

Alexandre Giroux scored his first goal since the 2006-07 season in Washington’s 3-1 win over Boston. … Detroit’s Jiri Hudler played his 200th NHL game, a 4-3 win over the Flames. … Tampa Bay lost 4-1 to New Jersey and is 1-7-4 since firing Barry Melrose in mid-November.

SCORING SPARK

Anaheim Ducks enforcer George Parros is suddenly racking up points. He knocked in a rebound during a 4-2 home victory over the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday night for his third goal of the season. Parros had never scored more than two goals in any of his three previous NHL seasons. In 25 games this season, he also has posted a career-high seven points.

SPEAKING

“It’s a hard building to play in. They have one of the best home records year in and year out. That was as close as we’ve come.”—Calgary captain Jarome Iginla after the Flames’ 4-3 overtime road loss to the Red Wings. The Flames have lost five straight in Detroit and haven’t won at Joe Louis Arena since December 2005.

Re: NHL News and Notes Thursday 12/11

NHL FORECAST FOR THURSDAY
by Ron Raymond

Nashville vs. Columbus

It looks like Mason is trying to steal the #1 job in nets and he's posted a nice home record of 5-2 SU and the Jackets are facing a team in Nashville in which they've beaten 2 out of 3 times at home L3. When NASHVILLE played as an Underdog - During Last 3 Years - Lost Last Game by 2 Goals; The Preds are 1-11 SU in this spot the L3Y.

Prediction: Columbus 3 Nashville 2


Tampa Bay vs. Montreal

Very dangerous games for the Habs vs. a team spiraling out of control, but still have a nuclear of players who can change the outlook of a game in just a few positive shifts. Habs are coming off a nice 4-1 win over the Flames, so they could get caught in a letdown spot, but Carbonneau will have his troops ready for this game. Furthermore, the Habs have Washington on deck this Saturday and this will be their 3rd game since Saturday. When TAMPA BAY played as any home/road team - During Current Season - Lost Last Game by 2 Goals or Less; The Lightning are 2-15 SU in this role this year. When TAMPA BAY team Played as Road team as a Underdog - Before a conference game - Playing in back to back games - Allowed 4 or more goals AGAINST in their last game; Tampa Bay is 1-17-1 SU in this situation since 96.

Prediction: Montreal 4 Tampa Bay 3


Carolina vs. Philadelphia

Normally takes a new head coach a few games to have his system in place and if the 3-1 win over the Capitals is an indication the Canes are playing Maurice's system, let's back them tonight vs. the Flyers.
