"During an Australian Open stream on ESPN3, Doug Adler should have been more careful in his word selection," an ESPN statement said.

The Anaheim Ducks and the Colorado Avalanche couldn’t finish the second period of their game on Thursday night. Defenseman Eric Gelinas of the Avalanche smacked a shot off the glass behind the Ducks’ goal, leaving a significant crack in it. The arena workers couldn’t get the broken glass out.
