Monday Sports Notes

A quiet day for sports but a big night for the Westman High School Hockey League's Dauphin Clippers. They'll play the third and deciding game in their best of three series with the Melita/Waskada Devils at Credit Union Place. The series tied 1-1 after Melita picked up a 4-3 overtime victory over the weekend. Game time tonight is 8:30. The winner moves on and the loser goes home.

The Dauphin Kings are off from game action, but not for long. They'll return to the ice tomorrow when they visit the Virden Oil Capitals for the final time this season. Dauphin locked up first in the MJHL's Sher-Wood Division last night with a 4-3 triumph against Neepawa. The Kings will open up the playoffs against the winner of the Survivor Series between Wayway and OCN in March.

With the Winter Olympics over, the N-H-L slowly gets back into action. Play resumes tomorrow with the Carolina Hurricanes visiting the Sabres in a game that was postponed in January because of hazardous weather in Buffalo. There are four games on Wednesday, and 12 on Thursday. The Winnipeg Jets are back on the ice Thursday when they host Phoenix. 

Former Colorado Avalanche forward Milan Hejduk is retiring from the N-H-L. The 38-year-old played 14 seasons, all with the Avalanche. The three-time Olympian and native of the Czech Republic scored 375 goals in 1,020 games and won a Stanley Cup in 2001.

Major League Baseball will release its new guidelines regarding home plate collisions today. League executive vice-president Joe Torre says a memo is coming out that is 'pretty cut and dried at this point in time.' Torre says baseball wants to eliminate vicious and potentially dangerous contact to catchers at home plate.
