Seen and heard yesterday at Bell Centre in Montreal:
MISSING GAMES The number of Caps who have played in every game this season was reduced by one when left wing Steve Konowalchuk was placed on injured reserve. Konowalchuk strained a groin early in Thursday's 5-3 victory over Carolina. He will be eligible to return to action Thursday against Pittsburgh.
The move allowed the Caps to bring right wing Dainius Zubrus back from the injured list. He had been out with concussion-like symptoms.
GONE BUT … Donald Audette, obtained from Dallas two seasons ago to help the Canadiens' slumping offense, was sent to Hamilton, Ontario, of the AHL. Audette, who will make $3.2#million this season and each of the next two unless he is bought out, had three goals while playing in 36 of Montreal's 50 games. Audette was a dangerous right wing who lost his scoring touch. His three goals came on 70 shots.
TO RUSSIA, WITH GLOVES Mike Gartner, director of business relations for the NHL Players Association and the first retired Cap to enter the Hall of Fame, delivered more than $100,000 worth of hockey equipment to Russia for disadvantaged youngsters. Gartner is chairman of the NHLPA's Goals and Dreams Fund.
