FACEOFF.COM: The Phoenix Coyotes handed the Vancouver Canucks their fourth loss in five games, beating the Canucks 5-4.
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: The Jets scored four times in the second period to snap the Dallas Stars’ 10-0-1 streak with a 5-2 victory.
EDMONTON SUN: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins could be playing his way back into the race for the Calder Trophy, with almost as many points as rookie scoring leader Gabriel Landeskog of the Avalanche, but in fewer games. If not for a couple of injuries, Nugent-Hopkins would be running away with the scoring lead, and likely the nomination for rookie of the year.
CALGARY HERALD: Flames forward Curtis Glencross won’t receive supplemental discipline for hitting San Jose Sharks forward Jason Demers from behind in a recent game.
TORONTO SUN: Steve Simmons calls the Maple Leafs a “monumental disaster”. He’s got a point, as the club has made no real progress under GM Brian Burke’s tenure than they did under his predecessor.
