+ A key to the early success of the Phoenix Coyotes (10-3-2) is the production they are getting from their defense. Oliver Ekman-Larsson (three goals, 11 points), Keith Yandle (1-10 - 11) and Derek Morris (4-6 - 10) ranked 4-5-6 in defensemen scoring through Sunday's games. + Welcome back Manny Malhotra, who returned to the NHL last Friday with the Carolina Hurricanes. The classy forward suffered a devastating eye injury in 2011 while with the Vancouver Canucks; fearing his impaired vision jeopardized his safety, they played him in only nine games last season and didn't re-sign him. He won 15 of 20 faceoffs in his first game back and 10 of 14 in his second.

The approaching winter and longer nights make this an ideal time to head north to visit one of nature's most amazing phenomena: the northern lights. And one of Canada 's national parks provides several ideal viewing locations within striking distance of creature comforts. Jasper National Park , (780) 852-6176, in west-central Alberta, is officially the largest “dark sky preserve” in the world. Such places - well away from urban lights - provide superb opportunities for stargazing and viewing the aurora borealis.

In an agonizing overtime loss to the last-place Edmonton Oilers, Ducks star forward Corey Perry took seven shots, was around the net routinely and couldn't score a goal. "We've got to put those in … don't look for the easy outs," said Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau . "When he bears down on those, he usually scores. " Less than 24 hours later, with first place in the Pacific Division at hand against a Vancouver Canucks team clinging to playoff life, Perry bore down. He powered to the net again Saturday, took a Saku Koivu pass through traffic and banged at the puck until a clinching third-period goal seized the night.

The NHL was right to suspend Boston's Shawn Thornton 15 games for his premeditated assault Dec. 7 on Pittsburgh defenseman Brooks Orpik, though it should have suspended Pittsburgh forward James Neal more than five games for kneeing Boston's Brad Marchand in the head in the same game on a play that had nothing to do with hockey, civility or sense. The verdict rendered Saturday on Thornton by Brendan Shanahan, the NHL's czar of discipline, triggered predictably partisan reactions and absurd claims that Orpik was to blame because he declined Thornton's invitations to fight.

Jack Lazorko spends 11 years in the minor leagues, always hoping for a shot at the majors. He pitched pretty well for the Angels last year and was rewarded with a ticket back to Edmonton. This year he was brought up for two starts, came within two outs of earning a win over Toronto and he wound up back on the one-way to Edmonton. When all those other general managers were in collusion, who was Mike Port talking to--General Noriega? PHIL BARTOLI Manhattan Beach

CALGARY, Canada -- Kings forward Jordan Nolan is facing potential supplementary discipline from the league for punching Oilers left wing Jesse Joensuu in the Kings' 4-2 win at Edmonton on Sunday night. The incident occurred late in the second period. Nolan received a double minor for roughing, and Joensuu went off for cross checking. With the Kings playing the Flames on Monday night, Nolan will have a phone hearing with the league today. It had been set for this morning but the league has had to make adjustments to its schedule because of the ongoing meetings in Boca Raton, Fla., with the general managers.

No one is mentioning 1982. No King dares evoke that sacred memory. The Miracle on Manchester has gone unremarked upon. The obvious similarity between this playoff season and the one five years ago, when the Kings knocked the heavily favored Oilers out in the first round, is that, again, the Kings and the Oilers have split the first two games in the first round. And Edmonton is still heavily favored. The similarities end there, though.
