(TSX / STATS) -- Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Radko Gudas received a 10-game suspension and Nashville Predators forward Austin Watson was handed a two-game ban in punishments announced by the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety on Sunday night.

Gudas' suspension was for slashing Jets forward Mathieu Perreault in Winnipeg on Thursday. Gudas was assessed a major penalty and game misconduct for slashing when the incident occurred at 9:50 of the first period.

"He got the meaty part of the neck. It could have been worse, I guess," Perreault told the Courier Post of Cherry Hill, N.J. "He apologized in the penalty box, but when you look at the replay, it looks like he did it on purpose. It wasn't an accident. He's been known for doing stuff like that, so I certainly don't appreciate it."


Gibson stops 50 as Ducks edge Panthers

(TSX / STATS) -- ANAHEIM, Calif. -- With recently inducted Hockey Hall of Fame members Paul Kariya and Teemu Selanne looking on, the Anaheim Ducks needed a superstar-level outing from goalie John Gibson to overcome an uneven team performance on Sunday evening.

The Ducks scored twice on the power play but allowed 24 third-period shots, yet they squeaked out a 3-2 win over the Florida Panthers thanks to Gibson.


Knights start fast, beat slumping Kings

(TSX / STATS) -- LAS VEGAS -- The Los Angeles Kings made their first regular-season visit to Las Vegas on Sunday night, but Vegas Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant wasn't about to declare his team's 4-2 victory before a record crowd of 18,211 at T-Mobile Arena a milestone for his surprising expansion team.

"Maybe for you guys but not for me," Gallant said after Vegas moved to within one point of the Kings for first place in the Pacific Division. "I'm pretty happy we won tonight because we're one point out of first place and we're battling hard and we're trying to win as many games as we can. To me it didn't matter if it was L.A. or Phoenix or whoever we played tonight. It's just about playing another team and getting another two points."


Teravainen scores 2 as 'Canes beat Isles

(TSX / STATS) -- RALEIGH, N.C. -- Teuvo Teravainen figures any line can be productive for the Carolina Hurricanes.

Right now, the one he is on is creating the most offense.


Lundqvist blanks Sens as Rangers win 3-0

(TSX / STATS) -- NEW YORK -- The New York Rangers delivered a defensive clinic against one of the NHL's most notoriously stingy teams.

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist posted a shutout by stopping just 20 shots, and the Rangers smothered the Ottawa Senators during a crucial five-minute power play in the third period of a 3-0 win on Sunday night at Madison Square Garden.


Avs score late in 3rd, top Wings in OT

(TSX / STATS) -- DETROIT -- It sure didn't look as if the Colorado Avalanche had played less than 24 hours ago, but that was the case on Sunday.

Center Nathan MacKinnon scored 2:55 into overtime, lifting Colorado to a 4-3, come-from-behind win over the Detroit Red Wings at Little Caesars Arena.


Jets D Enstrom to miss up to 8 weeks

(TSX / STATS) -- The Winnipeg Jets placed defenseman Toby Enstrom on injured reserve Sunday and the team announced he will miss up to eight weeks with a lower-body injury.

Enstrom was injured during Saturday's 5-2 win over the New Jersey Devils.


Leafs blank Canadiens, win sixth in row

(TSX / STATS) -- MONTREAL -- The Toronto Maple Leafs are on their best run in three years, and now they've got Auston Matthews back in the lineup.

Matthews scored twice in his return from an upper-body injury and the Maple Leafs extended their winning streak to six games with a 6-0 victory over the Montreal Canadiens Saturday night.


Ovechkin bloodied as Caps end Wild's run

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- Coming off a two-game road trip where most everything went wrong, the Washington Capitals returned home and, at least for one game, set things right.

T.J. Oshie and Evgeny Kuznetsov each had a goal and an assist, Braden Holtby stopped 30 shots and the Washington Capitals defeated the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Saturday night.


Blackhawks win eighth straight vs. Pens

(TSX / STATS) -- PITTSBURGH -- The Chicago Blackhawks could surely be forgiven if they held their collective breath Saturday night when No. 1 goaltender Corey Crawford was lying on his back next to his net after a collision.

And again when he left the game against the Pittsburgh Penguins a few minutes later after consulting with trainer Mike Gapski.
