There were four Canadian NHL teams in action on Saturday. Here's a quick look at how they fared.

Phaneuf finds the net

Dion Phaneuf scored his first goal in an Ottawa Senators jersey with just under four minutes remaining in their shootout win over the Detroit Red Wings, forcing overtime.

The Senators have now won three in a row, the team's longest win streak since November.

Jets get front row seats for Jagr's big night

Florida Panthers forward Jaromir Jagr scored a pair of goals against the Winnipeg Jets to move into third place on the all-time goals list and help his team to a 3-1 victory in the process.

The 44-year-old, playing in his 22nd season, now has 742 NHL goals and raised his season total to 20. 

Leafs pick up a point

The Toronto Maple Leafs were outdone 5-4 by the Philadelphia Flyers in overtime, but earned a point for their efforts. 

Toronto has dropped 15 of its last 19 games.

Last place Oilers lose 4th straight

The Edmonton Oilers fell to the Colorado Avalanche 3-2.

The Oilers scored first and nearly tied the game late in the third period, but were unable to force overtime. Tyson Barrie led the Avalanche with two goals and an assist.

The Oilers have lost seven of their last eight, dropping them back to last.
