How Canadian NHL teams fared last night
Kane continues streak, but loses to Sens
Four Canadian NHL teams took to the ice on Thursday night.
Here's how they did:
Hoffman, Kane rack up the points
Senators winger Mike Hoffman is on a tear, extending his impressive scoring streak to eight goals in six games.
Hoffman had two goals and an assist, including the game-winning goal 30 seconds into overtime, to defeat the Blackhawks 4-3.
Chicago star Patrick Kane also had a three-point night to tie Bobby Hull's franchise-record 21-game point streak.
Canucks drop 4th straight
Vancouver was just under six minutes away from stealing a point in a game with Dallas, until Patrick Sharp broke the tie and sent the Stars on to a 4-2 triumph.
The Canucks have now lost 10 straight games against Dallas and are in a slump, having suffered their fourth consecutive loss this week.
Canadiens can't solve Holtby
Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby made 33 saves to keep Washington in the game against the Montreal Canadiens and T.J. Oshie scored twice to seal a 3-2 victory at the Bell Centre.
The home team outshot its opponent 35-19 and had the majority of scoring opportunities, but it wasn't enough to best Holtby, who holds a 7-0-2 career record against Montreal.
Leafs blanked in Reimer's return
Wild defenceman Matt Dumba scored the lone goal as Minnesota held on for a 1-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
Toronto goalie James Reimer made 27 saves in his first start since returning from an injury that sidelined him for over a week.
