Rinaldo Suspended Eight Games
NEW YORK (AP) - The NHL has suspended Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo for eight games for charging and boarding Penguins defenseman Kris Letang. Rinaldo is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the league's labor agreement. He loses $73,170.72 in salary, which goes to the players' emergency assistance fund. The play occurred at 15:36 of the first period of Philadelphia's 3-2 overtime victory last Tuesday. Rinaldo was assessed a major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct. The NHL announced the punishment on Monday.

Pens Host Winnipeg Minus Crosby
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby will miss tonight's game against Winnipeg after undergoing treatment for a lower-body injury. Coach Mike Johnston says there's a possibility Crosby could return on Wednesday when Pittsburgh plays in Washington. The two-time MVP received an injection to deal with the injury last Thursday, causing him to miss the All-Star festivities over the weekend in Columbus. Center Evgeni Malkin did not practice with his teammates on Monday and is out indefinitely, also with a lower-body injury. Johnston says he won't know how much time Malkin will miss but added he does not expect Malkin to skate for several days. Defenseman Kris Letang did practice on Monday and could play tonight. Letang sat out the final game before the All-Star break with concussion-like symptoms.

Kraft Says We Did Nothing Wrong
CHANDLER, Ariz. (AP) - New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft has made an impassioned defense of his team's actions and integrity regarding the NFL's investigation into under-inflated footballs being used in the AFC championship game. He says the team did nothing in violation of NFL rules, adding that it bothers him that the reputations and integrity of coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady have been called into question. Kraft said he expects an apology from the league once the Patriots are found to be not guilty of breaking any rules.

Bryant To Undergo Surgery
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will have surgery tomorrow on his torn right rotator cuff, likely ending his 19th NBA season. Bryant was averaging 22.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 5.6 assists when he injured his shoulder during a dunk in a loss at New Orleans last week. The Lakers declined to offer a timetable for Bryant's return but discouraged speculation that his career might be over.

No Format Change At NASCAR
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR won't change its new championship format, which chairman Brian France says is "overwhelmingly popular" with fans. The Chase was revamped last year into an elimination-style system that created a winner-take-all final race among four drivers. Kevin Harvick won the season finale at Homestead in November to claim his first Sprint Cup title.

Sharapova Advances
MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Second seed Maria Sharapova and No. 10 Ekatarina Makarova have advanced to the Australian Open semifinals. Sharapova downed No. 7 Eugenie Bouchard 6-3, 6-2 after Makarova ousted No. 3 Simona Halep, 6-4, 6-love. And Tomas Berdych advanced to the men's semifinals by knocking out 14-time Grand Slam champion and third seed Rafael Nadal.
