Teams to honor Lokomotiv crash victims
Starting with tonight's game, the Anaheim Ducks will honor former defenseman Ruslan Salei with a "24" patch on their jerseys, which represents Salei's jersey number during his nine seasons with the Ducks.

Salei was among those killed in this summer's plane crash in Russia that wiped out the KHL's Yaroslavl Lokomotiv team.

Quote of the Day

I just wanted to do something to take my mind off the shot and let me relax a little bit. It seemed like the fans liked it. I'm glad I was able to score.
