Sedin continues streak, Luongo returns for Canucks

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER - Vancouver Canucks captain Henrik Sedin kept his ironman streak alive, and goaltender Roberto Luongo returned from an ankle injury against the Calgary Flames on Saturday night.

Sedin's nearly 10-year streak without missing a game was in doubt after he was cross-checked in the ribs and forced to leave a 1-0 road loss to the Phoenix Coyotes on Thursday. Sedin, who leads the team with 40 points, and Luongo, who mixed six games with a sprained ankle, were listed earlier in the day as game-time decisions, but both took part in the pregame warm-up and were in the lineup.

TAMPA -- Martin St. Louis' career day wound up in disappointment.

St. Louis had the first four-goal game of his career and the first by a Tampa Bay Lightning player since the first game in franchise history. But St. Louis' four goals didn't translate into two points because the San Jose Sharks rallied behind a natural hat trick by Joe Pavelski for a 5-4 win.

Before Saturday, the only Tampa Bay player to score four times in a game was Chris Kontos, who had four against the Chicago Blackhawks in the Lightning's NHL debut on Oct. 7, 1992.

"I did appreciate [scoring four goals] until we were down and the game was over," St. Louis said." It's tough to really be glad about it. You put yourself in that position, obviously I got some good bounces. But you lose the game."

CHICAGO -- Forward Kris Versteeg practiced with the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday and will likely play Sunday when they host the Boston Bruins at United Center (12:30 p.m. ET, NBC, NHLN-CA).

Versteeg didn't play in the third period of a 4-2 victory against the Anaheim Ducks on Friday night at United Center after an accidental collision with teammate Bryan Bickell as the second period expired.

Prior to practicing with the Blackhawks on Saturday, Versteeg had to pass protocols in place to guard against playing with a concussion. He said the biggest issue was having his wind momentarily knocked out of him.

P.K. O'Handley of the Waterloo Black Hawks tied the United States Hockey League record for coaching victories when his team beat the Youngstown Phantoms 4-3 on Friday at Covelli Centre in Ohio.

O'Handley has a 529-441-74 record in his 19 seasons in the USHL, the past 12 with Waterloo. He's tied with Mike Hastings, who went 529-210-56 with the Omaha/River City Lancers from 1994-2008. Hastings is now head coach at Minnesota State University.

O'Handley's 1,044 games behind the bench are the most in USHL history.

O'Handley can surpass Hastings on Saturday when the Blackhawks (26-5-1) visit the Ann Arbor Ice Cube in Michigan to face the United States Under-18 National Team Development Program. Waterloo has outscored its opponents 130-84 this season and is 12-3-1 on the road.

"This is a difficult situation for Sheldon and a tough loss for the team," general manager Bob Murray said in a statement released by the team. "Sheldon has been in pain for quite some time. This surgery was his best course of action in order to alleviate pain and discomfort, and regain full mobility in his wrist. Sheldon's long-term health is the most important issue right now, and we support his difficult decision to have this surgery."

Beaulieu, the No. 17 pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, played five games earlier this season and had one assist. He made his NHL debut last season and had two assists in six games.

"I've matured a lot since last year," Beaulieu said. "[Last year] I was running around everywhere, and you can't do that anymore once you are out of juniors. I made adjustments and feel like I can compete at a higher level now."
