Roy arrested after incident with wife at home

GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. -- Patrick Roy was arrested early Sunday on investigation of domestic violence charges, days after he set the career record for victories by an NHL goalie.

Roy was released on $750 bail. The Avalanche goalie also was held on criminal mischief charges, said sheriff's Lt. Steve Keller.

Officers responded to a "911 hang-up call" at Roy's residence, police announced.

The officers spoke with Roy and his wife and were told there had been an argument, police said.

Police said there was physical damage to the home, and as a result of their findings Roy was taken into custody. A dispatcher said Roy had been taken to Arapahoe County Jail. She would not say whether anyone was injured.

The Avalanche acknowledged "the incident involving Patrick Roy" but declined to comment until the end of the investigation.

Sunday's games

PANTHERS 0, WILD 0: Florida and Minnesota played the first scoreless tie since Detroit and St. Louis did it April 1.

Minnesota goalie Jamie McLennan stopped 24 shots to keep visiting Florida winless. Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo made 20 saves.

The expansion Wild spent seven of the third period's final 11 minutes killing penalties, but kept Florida at bay for the first shutout in team history. It was the second time Minnesota has been blanked.

The Panthers are off to the worst start in franchise history.

Midway through the third, Minnesota's Maxim Suchinsky and Florida's Mike Wilson became tangled chasing a loose puck. Both collided with the end boards headfirst, then had to be helped off by trainers after laying motionless on the ice for more than a minute. Suchinsky was given a five-minute major penalty and game misconduct for boarding. Wilson (shoulder) did not return.

WINGS 2, JACKETS 1 (OT): Kirk Maltby scored 2:02 into overtime for visiting Detroit. Columbus' Steve Heinze ended Chris Osgood's shutout with 59.2 seconds left in regulation and forced the overtime.

After Osgood turned away two shots in the period, Sergei Fedorov glided through the point with the puck, then dumped it to Maltby on the right wing. Maltby lifted the puck over the left shoulder of Ron Tugnutt for his second goal of the season.

COYOTES 3, OILERS 3: Georges Laraque scored the tying goal at 13:48 of the third as host Edmonton rallied from a three-goal deficit.

First-period goals by Keith Tkachuk and Travis Green and a second-period score by Jeremy Roenick gave Phoenix a 3-0 lead. Roenick set up Tkachuk's goal for the 500th assist of his career.
