Not to brag or anything, but the NHL, in collaboration with NBC Sports (yay us), won the Montgomery Burns Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Excellence a Sports Emmy last night in the category of Outstanding Sports Promotional Announcement Episodic.

Price placed on injured reserve; Yakupov to miss 2-4 weeks with sprained ankle
Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf wasn’t impressed with at least two things last night in Arizona:
1. His team’s performance in a 4-2 loss to the Coyotes. 2. The atmosphere inside Gila River Arena, where the announced attendance was just 11,578.
“It’s hard. When you come into a building … it’s dead,” Getzlaf told the O.C. Register. “Nothing against the fans. It’s hard to fill a big building like this and have the amount of people in it to build your energy. So you have to do it yourself. You have to be ready when you step on the ice. I thought we came out flat.”
Anaheim’s record fell to 8-11-4 with the defeat.
The Coyotes’ average attendance also fell, to 13,144 in eight games.
