KINGS OF THE ROAD

Goalie Jean-Sebastien Aubin made 45 saves and Dustin Brown scored two goals for Los Angeles in the front end of a home-and-home series.
Mikael Tellqvist stopped 35 shots for his fifth career shutout as Phoenix blanked Dallas 5-0 on Friday night. Tellqvist, who was sick with the flu, was also credited with an assist on a second-period Coyotes goal in what turned out to be a very healthy performance.
Washington's Alex Ovechkin scored for the eighth consecutive game against Philadelphia Friday night, but the Capitals star came up short in losing to the Flyers 3-2. Ovechkin has the longest active scoring streak by any player against one team.
Senators center Jason Spezza agreed to a $49 million, seven-year contract extension Friday that allowed Ottawa to lock up the final member of its potent first line. Spezza, who has a goal and 12 assists in 10 games this season, would have been a restricted free agent after this season but now will be with the team through 2014-15. He joins Daniel Alfredsson, who is signed through 2011-12, and Dany Heatley, who agreed to a six-year extension through 2013-14 last month.
``We play the game hard, but within the rules. Other than a couple of minor blips, we just try and outwork the teams. We play a hitting style, a checking style where we try to turn pucks over. I don't think it's 'Bullies.''' - Philadelphia's Mike Richards after the Flyers' 3-2 win over Washington Friday night. There 46 minutes in penalties and no fewer than four outright fights in the game. Richards, who received 12 stitches in and around his nose from a fight, came back to score a goal.
