SIGN, THEN SUSPEND
The Montreal Canadiens suspended Pavel Valentenko without pay after the prospect left the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs to sign a three-year contract with Dynamo Moscow. Valentenko was in the second year of a three-year, entry-level deal with the Canadiens organization. The NHL is without an agreement with the Russian federation on player transfers.

Anaheim's Teemu Selanne had two goals, moving him into a tie with Guy Lafleur for 20th place all-time with 560 career goals.

SUSPENDED
Blue Jackets forward Jared Boll was given a one-game automatic suspension by the NHL for instigating a fight during the final 5 minutes of a 4-2 victory over Colorado on Thursday night. Blue Jackets coach Ken Hitchcock was fined $10,000, also an automatic assessment stemming from the fight that occurred with 2:38 remaining in the third.

STRONG IN DEFEAT
Ducks right wing Corey Perry scored with 57 seconds remaining to send Anaheim's game against Vancouver into overtime. Perry also had four assists for the Ducks in a 7-6 shootout loss.

HOME SWEET HOME
Chicago remained unbeaten in regulation at home (4-0-2) with a 5-2 win over the Dallas on Friday night.
