An article commending Shane O`Brien for his mentoring abilities of Tyson Barrie.

Forget adjusting to the heightened game pace. Has the Victoria native been out on the town yet with the outgoing and outspoken Shane O'Brien?

"No comment," chuckled the promising Colorado Avalanche defenceman.

"Shane's a beauty. He's taken me under his wing right from the start and he's super easy to talk to and always joking around, so that makes things a little lighter. I just sit in the locker-room before the game and just listen to him and I can't stop laughing."

Jean-Sebastien Giguere isn't too worried about his groin, so fans shouldn't be either.

"I'm not too worried about it," said the 34-year-old Giguere, the Post reports. "I'm not sure what it is, but I honestly don't think it's anything serious."

A fairly in-depth article into the on-goings of the Steve Moore - Todd Bertuzzi case.

Former Canucks senior vice-president of hockey operations Dave Nonis, now an official with the Toronto Maple Leafs, seems to have corroborated Bertuzzi's allegation.

Court documents quote Nonis admitting under similar questioning "that Crawford pointed to Steve Moore’s name (among others) just prior or during the March 8, 2004, game and said that Steve Moore must ‘pay the price tonight.’ "

"I am ordering not only disclosure, but also production to the plaintiffs of the minutes of settlement showing the percentage allocation of liability agreed among the defendants and (Crawford and Orca Bay)," Dash wrote.

It’s unclear if or when details of the Bertuzzi-Crawford agreement will be made public. Dash ordered that they be filed to the court under seal.

A preview of the Colorado Avalanche and Edmonton Oilers game - with a recap of the Oilers - Maple Leafs game.

"We didn’t get off to the start that we wanted, but we did come back to play as well as we could. For us to come back from 2-0 against a team that has a lot of fans in the building and were able to get off to a start like that, it’s a good thing for us. But at the same time, we can’t get down 2-0, because those holes can be pretty deep to get out of."

With the Avalanche coming in chasing a playoff spot, the Oilers don’t expect to get into a similar free-flowing contest.

"Colorado plays a little bit different than Toronto," said Hall. "But they’re a good team, they’re in the playoff hunt and they’ll be coming for us for sure. We’ve seen them so much that we know what to expect and they know what to expect, so it’ll probably be a pretty tight-checking game."
