The Avalanche play the Carolina Hurricanes.

"When we lose, we forget about it. When we win, we forget about it," said forward Matt Duchene, who has two goals and four assists in the last four games. "I mean you take the lessons and you move on to the next day.

"We're playing like we're a .500 hockey team and not a 14-2 team and I think that's the key. You stay grounded and you stay humble and hungry all the time."

The Avs have thrived with East teams back on the schedule, going 8-1 in those games. The lone defeat - which came Oct. 17 to a Detroit team that was part of the West until this season - snapped a 6-0 start.

Steven Stamkos has a broken right tibia. There is video of the accident, it does not start automatically, however a smaller video does in the right corner.

His left skate appeared to hit the post first before his right leg crashed into it around the shin area. He tried to get up twice before going down to the ice in pain, grabbing his leg just above the ankle.

When he left the ice on a stretcher, players on both teams tapped their sticks on ice as the fans applauded in tribute.

The Lightning confirmed on the team’s Twitter account that Stamkos suffered a broken right tibia. It has been reported that he will undergo surgery on Tuesday.

Jagr and Brodeur still have some moves.

Jaromir Jagr and Martin Brodeur, two 41-year-old veterans, did what they’ve done throughout their brilliant careers on Sunday night for New Jersey.

The Devils’ hard-hitting winger Cam Janssen did something he rarely does — score.

Jagr became the eighth player in NHL history to top 1,700 points, Brodeur got his 123rd shutout, and Janssen got his fifth career goal in the New Jersey’s 5-0 victory over the Nashville Predators.
