NHL News From Around The League - November 18th

Former Penguin and current Detroit Red Wing Ty Conklin recorded his first shutout of the season last night, as the Red Wings defeated the Edmonton Oilers 4-0 in Detroit. It was Conklin's second start, and second win, in a row.

There was more bad news for the Oilers yesterday as forward Fernando Pisani left the game during the third period. He was unable to leave the ice on his own and was helped off by teammates. Pisani suffered a broken ankle in a clash with Nicklas Lidstrom for a loose puck.

In other injury news, St. Louis Blues centre Andy McDonald will miss up to eight weeks of action after breaking his leg in a game against Montreal on Sunday.

Penguins centre Sidney Crosby has passed the 100,000 vote mark in NHL All-Star balloting. He is still over 100,000 votes away from being voted onto the team.

The Ottawa Senators lost their sixth straight game last night, falling to the New York Rangers in a shootout. Dany Heatley, Jason Spezza and Daniel Alfredsson were reunited for the game, but the result will still the same. Alfredsson did score his first goal in ten games, however, with Heatley getting an assist on the goal. Senators centre Mike Fisher left the game with an undisclosed injury.

Paul Stastny is a richer man today. The Colorado Avalanche have signed the young center to a 5-year/$33 million contract extension.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have been sending out feelers to former Anaheim Ducks general manager Brian Burke. The Leafs' people have been talking to Burke's people and at some point they may decide to "do lunch."
