Heatley out for Game 3 with undisclosed injury
Dany Heatley was scratched from Game 3 against the Colorado Avalanche due to an undisclosed injury.
A series that hasn’t gone quite as planned for the San Jose Sharks took another unexpected turn Sunday night when top forward Dany Heatley was scratched from Game 3 against the Colorado Avalanche due to an undisclosed injury.

Heatley, part of the Sharks’ top line with Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau, had one assist and was minus-2 in the first two games of the series. San Jose lost the opener 2-1 and was less than a minute from falling in an 0-2 hole to eighth-seeded Colorado before rallying to win Game 2 in overtime, 6-5.

Manny Malhotra took Heatley's place alongside Thornton and Marleau.

Also, Avalanche right wing Milan Hejduk suffered what the team said is an upper-body injury at 2:06 of the first period when he collided with teammate Paul Stastny while the two were skating across the Sharks' blue line on a power play.

Colorado officials said Hejduk's return was "doubtful."
Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
