ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER/MERCURYNEWS.COM: The Anaheim Ducks picked up their franchise record 12th consecutive home win by downing the San Jose Sharks 5-3. Francois Beauchemin (2 goals), Ryan Getzlaf (1 G, 1A) and Emerson Etem (1G, 1A) had two-point performances.

LOS ANGELES TIMES/ARIZONA REPUBLIC: Rookie Tyler Toffoli scored his first NHL goal and collected an assist, while Jonathan Quick made 27 saves as the Los Angeles King shut out the Phoenix Coyotes 4-0.

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS/NEWSOBSERVER.COM: Rick Nash and J.T. Miller scored in a shootout as the NY Rangers snapped a three-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

TAMPA BAY TIMES/PHILLY.COM: Teddy Purcell snapped a 2-2 tie and Steven Stamkos potted an empty-netter as the Tampa Bay Lightning doubled up the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2. It was a costly win, as the Lightning lost defenseman Victor Hedman and winger Ryan Malone to injuries.

NBC SPORTS PRO HOCKEY TALK: St. Louis Blues forward Chris Stewart was last week’s NHL star of the week. Ottawa Senators forward Kyle Turris and Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky were second and third stars respectively.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Stewart’s name popped up in last week’s trade rumor mill. Some will say this honor boosts his trade value. I say it’s another reason why the Blues won’t trade him by the deadline.

WASHINGTON POST: Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin is working with coach Adam Oates toward revamping his game.

BOSTON HERALD: Bruins center David Krejci is day-to-day after being hit on the leg by a Johnny Boychuk shot during Sunday’s game in Pittsburgh.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Jovanovski joins Stephen Weiss, Jose Theodore, Kris Versteeg, George Parros, Dmitry Kulikov, Scottie Upshall, Mike Weaver, Sean Bergenheim and Michael Caruso on the Panthers ever-growing injury list.

    Ovechkin is spoiled by his contract. His desire to win started to disappeared when he began to be criticized by the media for his over the top showmanship. Although his slide began when BB was behind the bench, he started to fall apart around the time when he was always challenging Malkin to a fight. Enigma, he is. I think it’s the contract that killed his desire to win. Greed on the part of the owner for agreeing to such a long term deal for so much cash. Greed on the part of Ovechkin, “I have arrived” and am now worth millions. We’ve seen it in Toronto: Tucker, Kaberle, McCabe, Grabovski, Kulemin, all signed for more than they were worth, all played like bums once the bucks were paid.

    I think I know why the Panthers are struggling this year. I didn’t realize they had that many people injured!
