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.

SUSPENDED

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
