OTTAWA CITIZEN: Goals by Mika Zibanejad, Kyle Turris and Clarke MacArthur lifted the Senators over the Washington Capitals 3-1. It was the Senators first back-to-back win since early November, but came with the loss of Chris Neil, who left the game with a lower-body injury.

VANCOUVER SUN: The Canucks fell to the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3 in a shootout. The Canucks held a 3-2 lead until Brayden Schenn tied the game with less than a minute remaining in regulation. Vincent Lecavalier tallied the only goal in the shootout.

TORONTO STAR: Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri seems unconcerned by coach Randy Carlyle’s threat of demotion to the third line.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Kadri’s name recently popped up in the rumor mill so this is likely to stoke the trade speculation.

WINNIPEG SUN: Paul Friesen evaluates the Jets season so far and finds a club spinning its wheels.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Jets are six points out of a wild card berth in the very tough Western Conference. If they don’t get it together soon they can forget about a playoff spot.

MONTREAL GAZETTE: Following a disappointing loss to Florida, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien decided to boost his team’s spirits with a game of “baseball hockey” during yesterday’s practice.

CALGARY SUN: The Flames yesterday shipped center Greg Nemisz to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for big winger Kevin Westgarth.


EDMONTON SUN: Call-up Roman Horak will get his first chance to crack the Oilers lineup.
