Sunday Recovery

After an eventful Saturday of hockey, and probably heavy drinking, its time to relax and recover on the action across the country. Catch up on any hockey news and highlights you may have missed while trying to get that blonde's phone number last night.

Every night is a big night for the NHL with the playoffs just around the corner, and last night did not disappoint. 12 games on the schedule meant a lot of important games to be played. Buffalo continued to pull away from the Canes and Leafs with a shutout win over New Jersey. While there are still many BeLeafers out there, we called the Leafs playoff hopes time of death at 9:44pm last night after a 4-2 loss to the Red Wings, Pension Plan Puppets still give them 6 more hours though. Corey Perry continues to lead the Ducks charge into the playoffs as he scored both Anaheim goals for a huge 2-1 win over the Blackhawks. The win pulled the Ducks into 7th place in the West and Perry into a tie with Steven Stamkos for the goal scoring lead at 44. The LA Kings were dealt a huge blow on Saturday when Anze Kopitar went down with a broken ankle. With their leading scorer and their 2nd leading scorer in Justin Williams on the shelf now - how far with the Kings go into the playoffs? Here are your headlines across Canada.

Toronto Maple Leafs

Montreal Canadiens

Ottawa Senators

Calgary Flames

Edmonton Oilers

Vancouver Canucks

Highlight of the Night
Ryan Smyth with a spin behind the net to tuck it on Peter Budaj - very reminiscent of Doug Gilmour on Curtis Joseph. Or you might like this save by Devan Dubnyk.
