When: 5 p.m. PDT. Where: Bridgestone Arena. On the air: TV: KDOC. Radio: 830 Records: Ducks 5-3-1; Predators 4-4-1. Update: With back-to-back games looming, it made sense for the Ducks to get a rare free day. There had to be some reward after scoring two power-play goals in the win against the Wild, right? The back-and-forth with Syracuse continued with still-suspended enforcer JF Jacques and forward Patrick Maroon going to the American Hockey League team on Friday.

Octopuses, known for using camouflage to avoid predators, have been observed apparently trying to sneak away by walking on two arms while pretending to be a bunch of algae. Two kinds of octopus were seen to use different ways of walking along the sea floor, researchers report in today's issue of the journal Science. The movements were discovered by Christine L. Huffard of UC Berkeley, who was studying underwater videotapes of the animals as part of a robotics project.

+ Goaltender Pekka Rinne will buy dinner for his Nashville teammates for a while after signing a seven-year, $49-million contract extension. That's pricey but a great investment if it convinces free-agents-in-waiting Shea Weber and Ryan Suter that the Predators mean business and they should stay in Music City. + Winger Eric Nystrom has scored three goals in eight games since Dallas, which needed to reach the salary floor, paid full price to acquire him from Minnesota instead of claiming him for half price on waivers.

Jonas Hiller has taken some shots this season behind a revamped Ducks defense that has given up more than its share. But Hiller stopped everything he faced Thursday, making 40 saves in a 4-0 victory over Nashville at the Honda Center for his first shutout of the season and fifth of his career. Teemu Selanne scored two goals -- both assisted by Saku Koivu -- and Todd Marchant and Bobby Ryan added the others. It looked like a laugher in the end, but the Ducks were clinging to a 1-0 lead much of the game before they broke through for three goals in the third.

Adrien Brody isn't kidding himself — he knows that when people hear his name, "action hero" isn't the first description that comes to mind. "The comment is constantly like 'skinny actor.' I'm thin. I'm not skinny at all," said Brody, 37, seeming slightly irritated as he reclined poolside at a Los Angeles hotel last month. "It's that they harp on a physical thing, because I don't think there's a question about my ability as an actor." He certainly has the hardware to back up that claim.

By covering large swaths of land with netting, making lizards jog on treadmills and turning six Caribbean islands into Darwinian laboratories, evolutionary biologists have made important discoveries about what drives the evolution of island lizards. The report, published online Sunday in the journal Nature, has broader implications for the practical study of evolution, researchers said. It serves as a rare demonstration that theories about natural selection can be directly tested in the field.

Tyrannosaurs may have stalked far more of the globe than previously thought. Scientists for the first time have found evidence of an ancestor of Tyrannosaurus rex in the Southern Hemisphere, a discovery that could shed light on tyrannosaurs' evolutionary lineage, which many scientists had thought was restricted to the Northern Hemisphere after the continents began to separate. Tyrannosaurs had been documented only in Asia, Europe and North America, but a hip bone discovered in Australia could have come only from a tyrannosaur, researchers have concluded.
