There were five Canadian NHL teams in action on Tuesday night. Here's a quick look at how they fared.

Sens, Capitals at opposite ends

On the same day that owner Eugene Melnyk called out the Ottawa Senators for a disappointing season, his team was defeated 4-2 by the Washington Capitals.

With the win, Washington clinched the top spot in the Eastern Conference. 

As for the Senators, Melnyk said prior to the game that "there's nobody safe when you have a year like we just did."

Canadiens' newcomers have milestone night

The Montreal Canadiens' newest forwards, Lucas Lessio and Mike Brow,n scored their first goals wearing the red, white and blue to help end their team's two-game losing skid with a 4-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks. 

Montreal is virtually eliminated from playoff contention, but it managed to prevent Anaheim from clinching a berth with the win. 

Jets hold Canucks off the board again

The Winnipeg Jets blanked the Vancouver Canucks 2-0, dealing the Canucks their third straight shutout loss in the process.

Ondrej Pavelec made 28 saves for his first shutout of the season. 

Vancouver has now gone two hours, 28 minutes of ice time without a goal. 

Coyotes continue to frustrate Oilers 

The Edmonton Oilers can't seem to solve the Coyotes.

Arizona extended its point streak over Edmonton to 23 games in a 4-2 triumph backed by Mike Smith's 27-save performance. 

Oilers centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins left the match and did not return after taking a high hit from Coyotes defenceman Connor Murphy.
