Canadiens, Flames and Oilers lose, updates on Ryan Kesler, Robin Lehner and Anthony Peluso, plus the latest on the Maple Leafs.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: The Canadiens offensive struggles continues, falling 2-1 to the Florida Panthers. Habs enforcer George Parros has been sidelined by a concussion suffered in Saturday’s game against the Islanders.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Habs have not dropped three of their last four while their offensive has inexplicably dried up over that period, managing only three goals over this stretch.
CALGARY HERALD: The Flames once again failed to hang onto a lead, falling 4-3 in a shootout to the New York Rangers.
EDMONTON SUN: A solid effort from the Oilers came up short as they fell 3-2 to the Anaheim Ducks.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Ryan Kesler is looking like a Selke Trophy candidate this season.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Kesler’s been a key factor in the Canucks recent success. If he can stay healthy, he could indeed be a Selke candidate this season.
OTTAWA SUN: Senators backup Robin Lehner stuck up for starter Craig Anderson, who was yanked from Saturday’s game against the Kings after giving up two goals on only four shots.
WINNIPEG SUN: The NHL has suspended Jets winger Anthony Peluso three games for hitting Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski from behind.
TORONTO STAR: The Maple Leafs hope the momentum from their upset win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday carries over into their upcoming game against the injury-depleted Pittsburgh Penguins.
