UGLY ENDING
Vancouver beat Edmonton 4-2 Saturday night, but the game was marred by several fights over the final seconds of the game. After Alex Burrows scored an empty-net goal with 40 seconds left, Oilers forward Jarret Stoll brushed by him at the side of the net and Burrows responded with a wild one-handed swing that caught Stoll on the skates, touching off a wild scrum behind the Oilers goal. The final 40 seconds of the game would see 10 fighting majors, including Burrows receiving a game misconduct and a five-minute penalty for slashing. The teams combined for 71 penalty minutes in the third period and 193 on the game.

LUCKY 13
Carolina overcame a two-goal third-period deficit to beat Florida at home for the 13th straight time, 5-4 Saturday night. The Panthers haven't won in Raleigh since Dec. 6, 2002 and the Hurricanes improved to 14-0-0 with one tie since then.

LOW FLYERS
Philadelphia's losing streak reached a season high-tying six games after falling at Montreal 1-0 Saturday night. The Flyers also lost six in a row (0-4-2) from Dec. 13-22, beginning with a 4-1 loss to the Canadiens.

TUCKER TIME
Toronto's Darcy Tucker scored twice on Saturday night, including the overtime winner in a 4-3 win over Boston that gave him five goals in five games.

EXTENSION
New York Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi received a two-year contract extension Saturday worth $3.1 million. The second-year player has eight goals and 14 assists this season and has played in all 60 games.

SPEAKING
``I don't think words can describe it. It just shows you our lack of commitment to defense. Many times it didn't cost us but today it cost us dearly. We basically had the game and gave it to them. There is no secret to it.'' - Florida goalie Tomas Vokoun after the Panthers surrendered a two-goal, third-period lead for a 5-4 loss at Carolina on Saturday night.
