it 3-1. Bourque added Montreals fourth

LOS ANGELES -- Forward Danny Granger has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers, adding more veteran depth for the clubs playoff push. The former All-Star joined the Clippers on Friday after his contract was bought out by the Philadelphia 76ers, who acquired him in a trade with Indiana last week. Granger cleared waivers shortly before Los Angeles announced the deal. Granger could play significant minutes for the Clippers (40-20), who lead the Pacific Division by four games over Golden State. He is coach Doc Rivers second major free-agent addition to the Clippers in the past week along with veteran big man Glen Davis. Despite the Clippers stellar record, theyre eager to add depth after several significant injury problems this season. Most recently, guard J.J. Redick has been out for nine games with a bulging disk in his lower back, and his status for the regular-season stretch is uncertain. The Pacers traded Granger to Philadelphia along with a second-round pick for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Granger had spent his entire nine-season NBA career in Indiana, becoming an All-Star in 2009 while averaging 25.8 points per game. Granger led the Pacers in scoring for five straight years, but he played in just five games last season while struggling with a knee injury. He then missed nearly the first two months of the current season with a strained left calf before returning to average 8.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 29 games. Paul Georges emergence in Indiana made Granger expendable, but he could be a key contributor to the Clippers, who need depth and secondary scoring. Granger chose Los Angeles over several suitors, including Miami, Houston and San Antonio. Granger could make his debut for the Clippers at home on Saturday against New Orleans. The Clippers traded Antawn Jamison and Byron Mullens last week to clear roster spots for veteran additions for the stretch run, and Rivers has filled them with two of the biggest prizes available. Davis joined Los Angeles on Monday after his contract was bought out by the Orlando Magic. Davis, who played for Rivers in Boston, was averaging 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds in 45 games this season. Davis made his Clippers debut on Wednesday in a victory over Houston, and the energetic big man got a standing ovation from the Staples Center crowd. The Clippers also added veteran Hedo Turkoglu last month. Los Angeles got good news Thursday on guard Jamal Crawford. The Clippers top reserve has no major structural damage in his strained left calf, and he hopes to miss only two games before returning next week. Nike Roshe One .

MONTREAL -- If this was the last time Saku Koivu laced up his skates in Montreal, it was exactly the way he imagined it. The former Canadiens captain, who played 13 years with the club before signing with Anaheim in 2009, received a standing ovation from the Bell Centre crowd after Montreals 4-1 victory over the Ducks on Thursday night. "It was emotional," said Koivu. "I had the whole building behind me. It was nice. A big thank you for that. I felt great before the game. And obviously at the end, that was amazing." Koivu hasnt announced his retirement, but theres speculation the 38-year-old will call it quits at the end of the season. If thats the case, Koivu wont ever skate again in the city he captained for a decade. "Its overwhelming to be there, to get that reaction from the fans. It just shows how passionate they are, and shows their appreciation. "You dont know how to react. You want to keep the focus on the game. And moments like that, its not easy. The emotions get the most out of you." This wasnt Koivus first return to Montreal since he left the city that drafted him in the first round in 1993. In January 2011, he beat his old team 4-3. Tonight, his new team couldnt find the win against an inspired Canadiens team. Montreal was up 2-0 at the end of the first period on goals by Michael Bournival and Tomas Plekanec. The Ducks came out firing in the second but couldnt beat Carey Price, who made 31 saves on the night. "We didnt let up," said captain Brian Gionta. "We knew they were going to have a push. We absorbed it and kept the momentum. "Big part is to continue to play our game and not open up. When the other team presses, you have to make sure you stick with your game plan." Gionta and Rene Bourque later scored for the Habs. Patrick Maroon scored a consolation goal for Anaheim. After relentless pressure by the Canadiens to start the game, Bournival scored his second of the year to put the Habs ahead 1-0 at 11:39 of the first period. Bournival tipped a blue-line shot from Nathan Beaulieu past Anaheim netminder Jonas ;Hiller.dddddddddddd The assist was Beaulieus first point in his fourth game this season. Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien had nothing but praise for Bournival. "The more he plays, the more confidence we have in his play," said Therrien. "Hes creating good plays with his intensity and his speed. He skates really well. He competes. "Its fun to see a young player, as the season goes on, even if its early in the season, whos making good decision and playing with a lot of confidence." Plekanec added to the Canadiens lead five minutes later. Bournival intercepted a missed clearance from Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf in the Anaheim zone and unselfishly dished the puck over to a wide-open Plekanec, who scored his fifth of the year. "When you respect the system, good things happen," said Bournival of the teams second goal. "I was well-positioned in my forechecking. Well definitely take a goal like that." Two quick penalties to Mathieu Perreault and Cam Fowler midway through the second period proved costly for Anaheim. Gionta struck mere seconds into the 5-on-3, tapping in the easy rebound after a Plekanec shot from behind the net rolled off Hillers arm. Maroon spoiled Prices shutout bid at 8:58 of the third, firing a wrist shot off the post and in past a sprawling Price to make it 3-1. Bourque added Montreals fourth of the night at 12:39. Fresh out of the penalty box, Bourque darted towards the net, took a pass from Plekanec and fired a backhanded shot past Hiller. Hiller made 21 saves on the night. Teemu Selanne, another NHL veteran, also played what could be his last game in Montreal tonight. The 43-year-old -- the oldest active player in the NHL -- is retiring at the end of the season and was kept off the score sheet. Notes: The Canadiens were still without Max Pacioretty, Brandon Prust and Daniel Briere on the night. All three forwards sustained injuries last week. ... Montreal welcomes the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. ... The Ducks are on a two-week, eight-game road trip that began with a 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday.
