The Avalanche Twitter account may have gone a bit too far. After two games with the Blackhawks, won by scores 5-2 and 7-3 respectively, the Avs are asking the NHL to change their schedule just a bit. May end up being some motivation for the Blackhawks.



D Bian Dumoulin of the Pens underwent surgery for lacerated tendons in his ankle. Eight weeks is the minimum that he will miss.



Boston is getting healthier. D John Moore has come off the IR and is being sent down for a conditioning stint David Backes is expected back in the lineup today.





With the Wings picking up Eric Comrie, Calvin Pickard has been sent to the AHL. D Jonathan Ericsson has been called up.
