THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER/THE ARIZONA REPUBLIC: Last night’s game between the Anaheim Ducks and Arizona Coyotes was a story of two clubs going in different direction. The Ducks won the game 5-1 for their 10th straight win, while the Coyotes dropped their seventh straight.

THE TAMPA TRIBUNE:  The Lighting matched a franchise record with their eighth straight win, dropping the Ottawa Senators 4-1.
