MONTREAL GAZETTE: Max Pacioretty scored twice (including an empty-netter) as the Canadiens rallied in the third to down the Phoenix Coyotes 3-1.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Lots of missed scoring chances for both clubs in this one with shots clanking off goalposts and players missing wide-open nets.

VANCOUVER SUN: Jason Pominville’s shootout goal lifted the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks, snapping their seven-game winning streak. The Canucks are now 2-for-18 in shootouts this season.

TORONTO SUN: The Maple Leafs were left looking for answers after falling 3-1 to the Florida Panthers.

SPECTOR’S NOTE:  Toronto is still holding onto a playoff berth, but they won’t be for much longer if they don’t snap out of their funk.

WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: The Jets blew a 2-0 lead and fell 4-2 to the bottom-feeding Buffalo Sabres. The loss spoiled Mark Scheifele’s first multi-goal game in his NHL career.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: I’ll have more on the Jets in my “Rumors” section.

CALGARY HERALD: The Flames fell 2-0 to the Boston Bruins.

EDMONTON JOURNAL: LA Kings goalie Martin Jones collected his third shutout in six starts blanking the Edmonton Oilers 3-0.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Can’t help but wonder if the Oilers might have interest in Ben Scrivens, who’s been relegated to backup duty by Jones’ solid play. Most likely the Kings will demote the waiver-exempt Jones when Jonathan Quick returns to action, but Scrivens is a UFA next summer and thanks to Jones it looks like he could become expendable.

OTTAWA SUN: The Senators intend to stick with defenseman Cody Ceci, who set a franchise record by scoring his first NHL goal in overtime.
