DALLAS -- Anaheim defenceman Stephane Robidas wound up in a hospital with a broken leg Monday night, just as he did the last time he played in Dallas when he was still with the Stars. Robidas had to be helped off the ice after his right leg bent awkwardly when a sliding Ryan Garbutt of Dallas undercut him and knocked him to the ice early in the second period of the Ducks 3-0 loss in Game 3 of a first-round series. The play happened in front of Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen, who was a teammate Nov. 29 when Robidas slid hard into the boards and had to be taken off the ice on a stretcher. "I saw him go down and when I saw who it was, I felt bad," Lehtonen said of the latest injury, which the team said was just above the previous fracture. Robidas never played for Dallas again and was sent to Anaheim just before the trade deadline for a fourth-round draft pick. Stars fans cheered for the 37-year-old Robidas, chanting "Robi, Robi!" as he left the ice. He was transported to a hospital. "He worked so hard to come back and be big part of this team," Anaheims Cam Fowler said. "He was going to play a huge role for us." The news was equally shocking in his old locker room. Robidas spent parts of 11 seasons with the Stars. "Since I got here, hes been a big part of who I am and what I became," Dallas defenceman Trevor Daley said. "I was in tears when it happened with us. I have a similar feeling right now. Its just a bad feeling in my stomach." Air Max 97 Nintendo 64

.C. - The Panthers will be without starting defensive tackle Star Lotulelei for Saturday nights NFC divisional playoff game against Seattle after undergoing surgery Wednesday to repair a broken bone in his foot.For the Calgary Flames, this season started in exciting fashion that was beginning to put distance between the struggles of five straight seasons without playoff hockey. Theyre now in danger of being thrust right back into that bleak conversation by matching their worst losing streak during that time. A loss tonight in Los Angeles would equal the Flames nine-game skid from Jan. 11-28, 2010, and they might be catching the Kings just as the Stanley Cup champions begin to re-establish their elite form. The Flames (17-15-3) at least earned a point in Saturdays 3-2 overtime loss in Vancouver, which is more than they can say about the first seven losses on the streak. We talked about our character since the start of the year, coach Bob Hartley told the teams official website. I felt it would have been easy to fold the tent tonight, second game in two nights, but credit to our guys, they battled back. The loss followed Fridays 2-1 home defeat against Dallas, and Calgary has been limited to 13 goals during the skid. That comes after averaging 3.11 goals through 25 contests. The Kings (17-11-6) have had no such offensive issues in their last two games, scoring 10 goals in consecutive wins after beating Arizona 4-2 on Saturday. It comes as a relief after Los Angeles was outscored 20-13 during a 1-4-1 slump. The power play has been a big part of the turnaround, as the Kings have gone 5 for 11 in these wins after converting at a rate of 10.5 percent over their previous 11 games. I cant tell you (whats changed), Anze Kopitar told the teams official website. Were moving the puck good and were getting some good looks. A couple of bounces here and there is nice to get. Kopitar has certainly been a big part of it while playing with Marian Gaborik and Jeff Carter. He has a goal and seven assists in the last two games and nine points in his last three contests after managing three in his previous 12.dddddddddddd He also has nine points in his past nine games against the Flames. Gaborik has broken out with six goals and two assists on a four-game point streak after going four games without one. He has 24 points in his last 19 games versus Calgary. Carter has scored in consecutive games and has six points in his last three, but hes been limited to six points in 17 games against the Flames. Its nice, Kopitar said. Every guy will tell you that its nice when you build a little bit of chemistry and you somewhat know where the guys are going to be on the ice. It makes it easier. But I think the big thing too is coming out of our zone and really make sure we support each other pretty good. Thats why we can get some open looks in the O-zone. Jonathan Quick has won consecutive starts, but he has a 3.16 goals-against average over a 3-1-1 stretch. Hes typically fared well against Calgary, posting a 1.40 GAA over a 9-3-2 span. For the Flames, Jonas Hiller and Karri Ramo are both in need of a win. Hiller has yet to face Los Angeles with Calgary, but hes got a 2.12 GAA against the Kings over a 5-3-3 run. Ramo has lost his last three games with a 4.48 GAA, but hes 3-0-0 with a 1.95 GAA against Los Angeles. All of those starts came last season as the Flames won three of five in the series.
