ALL TIED UP

Minnesota center Mikko Koivu will miss about a week with a cracked left fibula, the result of a stick-swinging hit by Vancouver's Mattias Ohlund on Friday night. Koivu was whistled for an elbowing penalty in the third period and was injured when Ohlund responded by swinging his stick and slashing Koivu on the left leg. The action could earn Ohlund a suspension from the NHL, which has been cracking down on hits deemed unnecessary or dirty.
``It is sort of one of those feelings where you go in the room and can't believe you lost. We weren't able to get two or three goals and get a big lead. They hung around, and it went to a shootout and anything can happen.'' - Nashville coach Barry Trotz after Saturday night's 3-2 loss to St. Louis.
