Canucks miss chance to clinch President’s Trophy in loss to Flames, Maple Leafs down Lightning, Bruins beat Senators, Jets grounded by Islanders, Ducks beat Oilers, Canadiens fall to Hurricanes.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE/CALGARY SUN: The Canucks missed an opportunity to clinch their second straight President’s Trophy, falling to the Flames 3-2. Yet another reason for the Canucks local critics to dump on them, I guess, since whatever they do this season doesn’t seem to be good enough.
EDMONTON SUN: Ryan Getzlaf potted the OT winner as the Anaheim Ducks edged the Oilers 3-2.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: The Canadiens fell to the Carolina Hurricanes 2-1 in a shootout. Wasn’t a particularly good night for Canadian teams playing against American ones.
