Ottawa Senators fans celebrate Erik Karlsson’s shootout goal against the Calgary Flames.

OTTAWA SUN/CALGARY HERALD: After blowing a 4-0 lead in the third period, the Ottawa Senators downed the Calgary Flames 5-4 on a shootout goal by Erik Karlsson. Kris Russell scored twice in the Flames’ 11-minute third-period rally. Senators goalie Craig Anderson, in his first game in 46 days, made 42 saves.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: With the win (their eighth in the last 10 games) the Senators remain five points behind the Boston Bruins for the final wild-card berth in the Eastern Conference. The extra point gives the Flames a two-point lead over the LA Kings for third in the Pacific Division and five ahead of the San Jose Sharks.

Notable headlines.

MONTREAL GAZETTE: With 37 wins this season, Canadiens goaltender Carey Price is within sight of the team’ single-season wins record (42) held by Jacques Plante and Ken Dryden. His 32 career shutouts places him two behind Bill Durnan on the Habs all-time shutout list.

TORONTO SUN: Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri was sent home yesterday after being late for a team meeting. Veteran blueliner Stephane Robidas will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: And the hits just keep coming for the hapless Leafs in what has to be one of their worst seasons since their nadir in the 1980s. 

WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: Michael Hutchinson has left no doubt he’s now the Jets’ full-time starting goaltender.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Jets will have to deal with the awkwardness of having a $3.9 million backup in Ondrej Pavelec in the off-season. For now, they’ll be riding Hutchinson as their starter for the remainder of this season.
