OUT
New York defenseman Radek Martinek will be out four to six weeks because of an upper-body injury sustained in the Islanders' home opener in the first period Saturday night after he absorbed a hard hit behind the net. The Islanders revealed the length of time Martinek is expected to miss, but declined to provide specific information about the injury. ... Sabres forward Jochen Hecht will miss at least two weeks after having surgery to repair an injured finger. The team did not disclose the nature of the injury or which finger Hecht hurt.

WINLESS

SPEAKING
``You have to give credit to our captain. He stepped up and fought their tough guy (Cody McCormick), did awesome against him, got a goal and an assist, and turned the game around. That's what leadership is all about and that's why we're moving in the right direction.'' - Calgary's Todd Bertuzzi on teammate Jarome Iginla after the Flames beat Colorado 5-4 Tuesday night.
