How Canadian NHL teams fared last night

Canadian NHL teams were busy on Thursday night, with the Leafs, Senators, Flames and Jets all taking the ice.

Leafs, Sens, Flames, Jets dealt losses

Los Angeles beats Toronto 2-1. 0:26

Canadian NHL teams were busy on Thursday night, with the Leafs, Senators, Flames and Jets all taking the ice. 

Here's how they fared:

Leafs' winning streak halted

In a chippy affair that saw an early ejection for Toronto Maple Leafs' Roman Polak after a hit on Tyler Toffoli, the Kings managed to triumph for a 2-1 victory in Los Angeles. 

Jeff Carter scored the game-winner halfway through the final frame to end Toronto's three-game winning streak.

Goalie James Reimer has been plagued by injury over the past few months and made 39 saves in his first start since Dec. 3. 

Newly acquired Vincent Lecavalier and Luke Schenn made their debuts for the Kings. 

Senators can't solve red-hot Panthers

​It may have taken 11 games to create their win streak, but the Florida Panthers can thank a brutal eight-second stretch of play by the Senators for keeping it alive.

Reilly Smith and Vincent Trocheck scored eight seconds apart in the Panthers' 3-2 victory over Ottawa. Florida goalie Roberto Luongo set a personal best, winning his ninth straight start. 

Flames fizzle on home ice

Arizona Coyotes goalie Louis Domingue made 25 saves to seal a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames at the Saddledome. 

Domingue, who has gone 5-2-0 in place of an injured Mike Smith, yielded a single power-play goal to Johnny Gaudreau in the first period. 

Calgary lost at home for just the third time in 15 games.

Jets fail to go the distance

The best of the Western Conference returned to form just in time for the Winnipeg Jets to visit.

The Dallas Stars snapped a three-game losing streak -- their longest of the season -- by notching a 2-1 shootout victory over the Jets.

Tyler Seguin also halted his own three-game pointless streak, scoring the Stars' lone goal in regulation.
