Around the rinks

AHL: Portland 5, Worcester 4 (SO): Mark Mancari netted his second straight hat trick and Jhonas Enroth stopped all four shootout attempts for the Pirates, who won their third in a row.

More practice for Forsberg: Peter Forsberg went through his first practice with the Colorado Avalanche in Englewood, Colo. in a tiny arena packed with people wearing No. 21 jerseys and waving Swedish flags. The 37-year-old Forsberg, who won two Stanley Cups with the Avs, wants to return to the team if his bothersome right foot can handle it.
