Stars' Whitney on injured list
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Dallas Stars have placed left winger Ray Whitney on the injured list because of a lower-body injury.
Whitney, who has been battling foot problems, played Friday against Phoenix at home, but went on the injured list before the teams met again Saturday night in the desert.
The 40-year-old forward led the Stars with two goals and four assists through the first eight games after signing with Dallas in the off-season.
Dallas filled his roster spot by recalling forward Reilly Smith from Texas of the AHL.
Erskine suspended 3 games
NEW YORK -- The NHL has suspended Washington Capitals defenceman John Erskine for three games for elbowing Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds.
Erskine was punished Saturday for a hit he delivered to Simmonds' face that sent him to the ice with a bloody nose late in the first period of Washington's 3-2 victory on Friday night.
Erskine wasn't penalized for the shot that knocked Simmonds out of the game.
Based on his average salary, Erskine will forfeit $24,324.33 to the Players' Emergency Assistance Fund.
Erskine will miss two games against Pittsburgh and a matchup with Toronto. He will be eligible to return when the Capitals face Florida at home on Feb. 9.
Pasquale shines between pipes
ST. JOHN'S, N.L. -- Ed Pasquale had a 24-save shutout as the St. John's IceCaps downed the Binghamton Senators 1-0 Saturday in American Hockey League action.
Eric O'Dell was the lone scorer for the IceCaps (21-22-3).
Robin Lehner made 29 saves for the Senators (27-12-4).
The first period was a goaltender's battle despite the low shot total. St. John's out-shot Binghamton 9-6 as teams traded chances in the scoreless period.
Lehner, who boasted a 16-6-1 record with a 1.90 goals-against average and .945 save percentage coming into the game, made numerous big saves, including shutting down Hunter Tremblay's breakaway.
St. John's looked to have broken the 0-0 tie at 10:45 in the second period, but the goal was waved off as soon as it was scored. It appeared that O'Dell had a goal, but it was waved off for goaltender interference.
The Senators offence was without leading scorer Mike Hoffman and rookie Mark Stone.
