The Bulletin Board keeps you abreast of the latest news
around the NHL Monday-Friday.
- Evgeni Malkin returned to action for the Pittsburgh
Penguins, who fell to the Washington Capitals in overtime. Pittsburgh got two goals from
James Neal, who now leads the league with four tallies.
- The big story from the game came in the third period when Aaron
Asham pummeled Jay Beagle in a fight and made some controversial taunting
gestures as he skated to the penalty box. Beagle was battered and bloodied and ended up pulling
his tooth out on the ice. Asham was apologetic
after the game.
- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Sean O’Donnell turned
40-years-old yesterday, so his teammates left a walker
in his dressing room stall.

the Montreal Canadiens.

up just six goals in four games after finishing dead last in goals against a
season ago. Ottawa, on the other hand,
has given up 21 goals in four games.

game with upper
body soreness and Ales Hemsky did not play in the final two periods for the
Edmonton Oilers because he
had a sore shoulder.
