Canadiens spoil Maple Leafs celebration of Mats Sundin’s career…Oilers down Senators in OT…Flames win a scrappy one over the Canucks…Sloppy defense costs Jets against Penguins.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The roof caved in for the Leafs in the second period, as the Habs scored four times in that frame and never looked back. The Leafs sure could’ve used a vintage Mats Sundin centering their first line in that game.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Flames needed this win to stay close in the race for a playoff berth, as the Phoenix Coyotes, who currently hold 8th overall, also won last night. This victory puts the Flames only two points out of eighth.
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: The good news for the Jets was their anemic offense tallied five goals against the Pittsburgh Penguins yesterday. The bad news is they played uncharacteristic sloppy defense, as the Penguins netted 8 goals for the win.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Is it me, or does it seem that, whenever the Jets try to open up offensively, they get burned in their own end?
