UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- Martin Brodeur made his second appearance for the St. Louis Blues when he replaced Jake Allen to start the second period with the Blues trailing 3-0 to the New York Islanders.

The four-time Vezina Trophy winner and three-time Stanley Cup winner went 688-394-176 in 21 seasons with the New Jersey Devils.

Allen allowed three goals on 12 shots.

MINNEAPOLIS -- Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry missed the final 2 1/2 periods Friday against the Minnesota Wild at Xcel Energy Center with a lower-body injury, and his status moving forward remains undetermined.

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said there was no further update on Perry immediately after the game, but that he was expected to travel with the team to Winnipeg, where Anaheim will practice Saturday before a game Sunday against the Winnipeg Jets.

"I know probably what [the media] knows, which is it is a lower-body injury," Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We could all tell where he got hit. We'll see more and we'll know more tomorrow."

Perry was knocked into the boards along the right wall on a hip check by Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard with the Ducks on the power play at 9:37 of the first period. Perry, who was favoring his left leg after the hit, needed assistance to leave the ice and immediately left the bench for further evaluation.

EDMONTON -- Edmonton Oilers general manager Craig MacTavish admits he is frustrated with their current state but said Friday he will not be making drastic changes at this time.

Edmonton has lost 11 straight games (0-7-4) and entered play Friday 30th in the NHL standings.

The Oilers are winless (0-12-4) against Western Conference opponents this season.

"Visually we're a better hockey team, and I think our most ardent detractors would have to admit that we are a better hockey team visually," MacTavish said. "But there isn't any tangible evidence of any of that improvement, and that's what so difficult for everybody to swallow. In particular, the fans, the faithful fans that flock to Rexall [Place] night in and night out to see some material evidence of improvement. There just hasn't been that level of improvement."

George Parros, a hard-working fan favorite during his nine seasons in the NHL, announced his retirement from the League on Friday.

"It's been an honor to play in the greatest League in the world," Parros told the NHL Players' Association.

"I've had the most amazing support from all of the fans who have supported my many endeavors throughout my career; for that I am eternally grateful. A final thank you to my parents Jim and Lynne, my wife Tiffany and my children who have made this dream of mine a reality."

Parros, 34, was picked by the Los Angeles Kings in the eighth round (No. 222) of the 1999 NHL Draft. He had 18 goals, 36 points and 1,092 penalty minutes in 474 regular-season games with the Kings, Colorado Avalanche, Ducks, Florida Panthers and Canadiens.

Friday, 12.05.2014 / 9:55 AM / News


Longtime Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson dressed for the warm-up with the Senators after signing a one-day contract with the club as part of his retirement announcement Thursday.

A sixth-round pick (No. 133) by the Senators in the 1994 NHL Draft, Alfredsson spent 17 of his 18 seasons in Ottawa, capturing the Calder Memorial Trophy in 1995-96, the King Clancy Memorial Trophy in 2011-12 and the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award in 2012-13. He also led the Senators to the Presidents’ Trophy in 2002-03 and the Stanley Cup Final in 2007, when he led all players with 14 goals and 22 points in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Among his many accomplishments, Alfredsson ranks first in Senators history in goals (426), assists (682), points (1,108) and games played (1,178). He returns to Ottawa after a one-season stint with the Detroit Red Wings; he had 18 goals and 31 assists in 68 games.

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist left the game against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday midway through the second period with an apparent upper-body injury.

With a little less than 9:00 remaining in the period, Hornqvist was hit by Canucks defenseman Ryan Stanton near the blue line closest to the Vancouver zone as play shifted back the other direction at Consol Energy Center.

Hornqvist immediately skated toward the bench and walked down the runway to the locker room.


Alfredsson skates with Senators one last time

OTTAWA -- It was a fitting ending to Daniel Alfredsson's last skate with the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Alfredsson, who's been dealing with recurring back problems, signed a ceremonial agreement earlier in the day that allowed him to retire as a member of the Senators, for whom he played 17 seasons.

He then skated in warm-ups with Ottawa as they prepared to play the New York Islanders at Canadian Tire Centre.

With a minute to go in the pregame skate, Alfredsson and the Senators engaged in a giant game of keep-away, the player with the puck trying to hang on to it against his teammates.

Keep-away was one of Alfredsson's favorites. It was usually the way he and a few of his teammates would conclude practice.

With the Foo Fighters' "My Hero" playing over the sound system, the fans cheered as Alfredsson grabbed the puck and stickhandled his way through a few of the other players.

It was a touching moment as Alfredsson, who played the 2013-14 season with the Detroit Red Wings, returned to the city where he started his NHL career to say thank you and goodbye to Senators fans.

"Oh my God, that could've been one of my best skates ever," Alfredsson said. "Just basically knowing that this is the last time I get to experience this and in this atmosphere. I couldn't have played, I'm not in good enough shape. But I skated a couple laps and you feel like, 'Maybe a few shifts.' It gets the juices flowing, the energy that's in the rink. It's incredible. "

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding it, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
