Avs' Tucker suspended for one game
The National Hockey League on Tuesday suspended Colorado Avalanche forward Darcy Tucker for one game, without pay, for making excessive physical contact on an icing play in Monday's game at Los Angeles.

Tucker was assessed a minor penalty for tripping Kings defenseman Matt Greene on the play, which occurred at 10:13 of the third period. He will miss Wednesday's rematch against the Kings at the Pepsi Center in Denver.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Tucker will forfeit $11,658.03.  The money goes to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.


Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
