Recap of the Senators-Canadiens game, plus the latest on Ryan Kesler, Tobias Enstrom, Ryan Whitney and more.
LA PRESSE/OTTAWA CITIZEN: The Montreal Canadiens edged the Ottawa Senators 2-1 in an afternoon game marred by poor officiating. The most notable was a questionable goaltender interference call which nullified the Senators tying the game early in the third period. Carey Price made 32 saves for the Canadiens, who got goals from David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty, making a miraculous comeback only 8 days after an emergency appendectomy. Rookie Jakub Silfverberg got the Senators only goal.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Ryan Kesler took his first full workout with the Canucks on Sunday, but is still a ways from returning to action.
WINNIPEG SUN: The Jets investment in defenseman Tobias Enstrom is paying off, as he’s become their top blueliner.
EDMONTON JOURNAL: Jim Matheson ponders the decline in the performance of Edmonton Oilers defenseman Ryan Whitney.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: The oft-injured Whitney hasn’t really been the same since he had ankle surgery midway through the 2010-11 season.
TORONTO STAR: The Maple Leafs third line of Nazem Kadri, Matt Frattin and Leo Komarov has been the club’s best so far this season.
CALGARY HERALD: The Flames hope a strong performance in their 3-2 loss to Chicago on Saturday is a sign of better things to come.
