How Canadian NHL teams fared last night
Senators lone squad to register win
Five Canadian NHL teams played on Tuesday night, including a head-to-head matchup between the Ottawa Senators and hometown Edmonton Oilers.
Here's a quick summary of all the action:
Sens stay hot, Oilers struggle
The Ottawa Senators took care of business in Edmonton, beating the Oilers 4-1 for their fourth straight win.
Edmonton, on the other hand, has lost four in a row and sits in the basement of the NHL standings.
Forsberg piles offence on Leafs
Filip Forsberg recorded his first career hat trick and did all the damage for the Nashville Predators in a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The 21-year-old forward spotted his team a three-goal lead that the Leafs couldn't erase despite two goals in the third period and a frantic effort to tie things up in the final seconds.
Kopitar helps Kings top Flames
Jonathan Quick made 22 saves and Anze Kopitar returned from a minor injury to score the go-ahead goal in the Los Angeles Kings' 2-1 victory over the Calgary Flames. The goal came on the power play late in the second period.
Luke Schenn also scored for the Kings. Sean Monahan scored for the Flames, also on the power play.
The Kings begin a nine-game stretch with only a single road game, which is in Anaheim less than 60 kilometres away.
Jamie Benn beats Winnipeg in 3rd
Dallas Stars captain Jamie Benn scored twice in the third period to lead his team over the Winnipeg Jets 5-3.
The Jets have lost four in a row as the two teams head back to Dallas for a rematch on Thursday. The win snaps a three-game losing streak for Dallas.
