OLD FRIENDS
Joe Corvo scored three times against his old team, the first hat trick of his career, and Patrick Eaves chipped in a goal to lead Carolina past Ottawa 5-1 on Sunday. It was Eaves' first goal since he and Corvo were traded from the Senators to the Hurricanes about two months ago.

SPEAKING
``Geno kind of, for whatever reason, seems to turn it up a notch when Sid's not in the lineup, I can't really explain why.'' - Pittsburgh's Brooks Orpik, on Evgeni Malkin, who continued his strong play in the absence of reigning MVP Sidney Crosby in the Penguins' 4-2 win over Philadelphia on Sunday. Malkin has notched 17 goals and 23 assists in leading Pittsburgh to a 13-6-4 record without Crosby in the lineup.
