NHL executives did not suspend or otherwise punish Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ray Emery for his length-of-the-rink dash Friday and instigation of a fight with unwilling Washington goaltender Braden Holtby, deciding that the league's rule book did not allow for punishment beyond what was assessed on the ice after the incident. League executives would not comment publicly on their thinking, but it is believed they felt there were no specific rules that could be applied in this situation.

The Elias Sports Bureau has been busy with all things Martin Jones since the Kings' rookie goaltender made his first start earlier this month. In fact, the way things are going, Elias might have to start a separate Martin Jones category. Jones is one victory away from tying the NHL record for consecutive games won to start an NHL career, which is held by Bob Froese, who won his first eight games with the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1982-83 season. The Kings have duly supplied that information in their notes packages, of late.

The Ducks, in need of a veteran goaltender for their organization, have signed Ray Emery to a two-way contract with the intention of assigning him to Syracuse of the American Hockey League. Because he's not going directly to the NHL team, he would have to be placed on NHL waivers. The Ducks planned to begin that process at 9 a.m. He would clear at 9 a.m. Tuesday. His contract will pay him $500,000 in the NHL or $105,000 in the AHL. "Ray Emery has been an NHL netminder for several years and is only 28 years old," Bob Murray, the Ducks' executive vice president and general manager, said in a statement.

CHICAGO — Former Ducks goaltender Ray Emery stopped 24 shots, and Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa each had a goal and an assist as the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Ducks, 4-1, on Friday night for their fourth straight win. Jamal Mayers and Dave Bolland also scored for Chicago, which moved into a first-place tie with Minnesota in the Western Conference. The Blackhawks, 6-0-1 in their last seven games, and the Wild have 44 points. Emery, who came back from hip surgery and led the Ducks into the playoffs last season after Jonas Hiller was sidelined because of vertigo symptoms, faced his former team for the first time since signing as a free agent with Chicago just before this season.

Reporting from Calgary, Canada — Six months ago, goaltender Ray Emery was a man without a team and seemingly without a hockey future after undergoing drastic bone-graft surgery last April to repair the deterioration of the ball joint in his right hip. Now, the Ducks are putting their season in his hands. That's partly because All-Star goaltender Jonas Hiller is again experiencing vertigo-related problems that he said have left him feeling "up and down," and partly because Emery has earned that trust with his stellar play.

Goaltending has been the most stable aspect of the Ducks' up-and-down season. But their goaltending situation changed several times Tuesday, when Jonas Hiller was put on injured reserve a few hours after newly signed Ray Emery cleared waivers and was assigned to Syracuse of the American Hockey League. The injured-reserve designation for Hiller, who ranks among the NHL leaders with a .925 save percentage, 25 wins and four shutouts, is retroactive to last Thursday. He has complained of dizziness and lightheadedness since he returned from the All-Star game, where he was struck twice in the mask.

You don't have a little goaltender chat with Ducks Coach Randy Carlyle — not this time of year. It's like trying to pry loose his deepest, darkest secret which is, of course, who he will start in goal Friday night against Nashville in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series at Honda Center. So who will it be? "The guy who gives us the best chance to win," Carlyle said. "The guy who is the healthiest. … Ultimately, the decision is mine. " Here is where the gyrations begin.

NHL general managers met Tuesday in Toronto to discuss a variety of issues but took no action besides agreeing to revisit several topics at greater length in March, when they are scheduled to convene for three days in Florida. The assembled general managers did not recommend any rule changes regarding goaltenders' fights, despite the furor that followed a rink-length dash by Philadelphia's Ray Emery to instigate a fight with an unwilling Braden Holtby of Washington on Nov. 1. Emery wasn't suspended or fined for his actions, which occurred during the Capitals' 7-0 rout of the Flyers.

It's the equivalent of putting a stop sign at a busy intersection after an accident, but the NHL will consider modifying its rules after it found no specific rule to support further punishing Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ray Emery for his rink-length dash to fight an unwilling Braden Holtby last Friday. Whatever your view of fighting, the other bouts among the Flyers and Washington Capitals involved willing participants. Holtby, the Capitals' goalie, wanted no part of Emery and shook his head negatively several times before Emery unleashed a series of blows, some to the back of Holtby's head.

The Philadelphia Flyers were supposed to be Stanley Cup contenders this season. Instead, it looks like they've gone the goon route in trying to resurrect something worthwhile from a season that's quickly spiraling out of control. In the closing minutes of Friday's 7-0 loss to the Alex Ovechkin-less Washington Capitals, frustrations seemingly reached a boiling point for the Flyers. After former King Wayne Simmonds made a couple of hard body checks on Capitals players, a on-ice brawl ensued between the teams.

Did the Ducks go into turnaround mode because Jonas Hiller became Jonas Hiller, the All-Star goaltender, again? Or did Hiller become Hiller again because the Ducks helped ease the way? Hiller would say it is a bit of both. "The biggest difference right now is everybody believes we can win, which I felt really wasn't the case in October and November," Hiller said. "If we were scored on, we were always worried about losing a game and never seemed to be really comfortable out there.
