Jets get big win over Sabres…Flames center Mike Cammalleri sidelined…Former Flame Rene Bourque returns to Calgary with Canadiens…Senators promote Bishop, demote Lehner…Mason Raymond dropped to fourth line…Leafs prepare for second game with new coach Randy Carlyle…Oilers fall to Ducks.
WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: The eighth-overall Jets scored twice in the third period to down the Buffalo Sabres 3-1, opening a three-point lead over Washington and 4 points over Buffalo.
CALGARY SUN/RDS.CA: An injured Mike Cammalleri won’t face his former team when the Flames square off at home against the Montreal Canadiens. Former Flames Rene Bourque will be facing his old teammates for the first time since the pair were swapped for each in mid-January.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Cammalleri made modest improvement in Calgary prior to his injury, while Bourque has remained the same inconsistent player he was with the Flames.
OTTAWA SUN: The Senators called up goalie Ben Bishop and demoted Robin Lehner.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: I admit to being surprised by this development, as Lehner played well in his four starts with the Sens, but they want Bishop to get in some games and see how he does.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Mason Raymond has had a difficult year, recovering from a back injury to return to action, but he’s been struggling offensively and been demoted to their fourth line.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Raymond was being mentioned in the trade rumor mill leading up to last week’s trade deadline. It’s possible he could be shopped in the off-season.
TORONTO SUN: The Maple Leafs prepare for their second game under new head coach Randy Carlyle, when they face the Boston Bruins.
EDMONTON JOURNAL: The Oilers fell 4-2 to the Anaheim Ducks.
