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.

A piece of scar tissue breaks off, pinches the nerve, and every time you move your leg it's almost like having a root canal in your stomach and groin.
