ROAD WOES

INJURED
Philadelphia defenseman Derian Hatcher will undergo surgery to repair cartilage damage in his right knee and will miss two to four weeks. The 35-year-old Hatcher, who had his streak of 107 consecutive games recently snapped because the knee was bothering him, said he aggravated the injury lifting weights. The Flyers called up Nate Guenin from their American Hockey League affiliate Philadelphia Phantoms to fill Hatcher's roster spot.

SPEAKING
``Someone screwed up. It's partly why I didn't want to stand up. After a moment I stood to get it over with and get the game running again.'' - Dallas center Mike Modano, who was initially awarded a record-tying assist on a goal in the third period of the Stars' 5-4 loss to Chicago. The assist would have been his 1,232nd point, matching Phil Housley for the most points by an American-born NHL player. After the game, it was ruled Modano never touched the puck and the assist was taken away from him.
