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.


Flames stall Canucks drive for President's Trophy.

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.

TORONTO SUN: Steven Stamkos scored his 59th goal of the season, but it wasn’t enough as the Maple Leafs edged the Tampa Bay Lightning in overtime 3-2.

OTTAWA SUN: Anton Khudobin made 44 saves as the Boston Bruins downed the Ottawa Senators 3-1.

WINNIPEG SUN: Michael Grabner scored twice in the third, leading the NY Islanders to a 5-4 win over the Jets.

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.
