Avs goalie arrested in domestic violence case

DENVER — Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov, a key part of the team's 10-1-0 start, was arrested Wednesday night on domestic violence-related charges, the Denver Police Department said.

Varlamov turned himself in on felony kidnapping and misdemeanor assault charges for something that happened Tuesday, police said. They declined to elaborate, saying only that the case involves someone with whom Varlamov, 25, was in an intimate relationship.

Varlamov was to remain in jail at least overnight because he couldn't post bail with an assault charge. He must first appear before a judge. He had a court appearance scheduled for this morning.

The Russian is 7-1-0 and among the league leaders in goals-against average and save percentage. The Avalanche had Monday and Tuesday off, and Varlamov practiced Wednesday morning.

The Avs next play Friday at Dallas.

Varlamov declined interview requests. The team issued a statement saying it was aware of the allegations and would not comment further until the investigation was over.

Game highlights: Brandon Sutter and Jussi Jokinen scored 6:58 apart in the third period and the host Penguins held on for a 3-2 win over the Bruins in the teams' first meeting since Boston swept Pittsburgh out of the Eastern Conference final last season. … Former Lightning and current Maple Leafs defenseman Paul Ranger scored his first goal since returning to the NHL after a four-year absence in a 4-2 win over the host Flames. The goal was a shorthanded empty-netter.

Around the league: Ducks forward Teemu Selanne will have oral surgery after losing at least four teeth to a high stick and is expected to be out two weeks. The Flyers' Philadelphia's Luke Schenn inadvertently hit Selanne in the mouth with his stick Tuesday. Selanne needed 40 stitches. … Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner, out with an upper-body injury, won't play in Carolina's two games this weekend, one of them Friday against the Lightning, coach Kirk Muller said.
