WINNIPEG FREE PRESS: The Jets woeful powerplay (0-26 over the last eight games) let them down again, blowing a 2-1 lead to fall 3-2 to the Colorado Avalanche. Jets defenseman Paul Postma, meanwhile, is sidelined indefinitely after doctors discovered a blood clot in his leg.
OTTAWA SUN: The Senators suffered their third straight loss on home ice falling 5-2 to the San Jose Sharks.
CALGARY HERALD: Curtis Glencross ended a six-game goalless drought by switching back to his old Easton stick to score against the Washington Capitals during the Flames 5-2 win Saturday.
TORONTO STAR: The Maple Leafs hope forwards Joffrey Lupul (deep bone bruise) and Nikolai Kulemin (broken bone in his foot) can return to action in their upcoming Western road swing.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: Canadiens goalie coach Stephane Waite’s work was evident at both ends of the ice in Saturday’s Sharks-Canadiens game. Waite was the goalie coach in Chicago when Antti Niemi was a Blackhawk.
