Coyotes at Canucks

Phoenix is holding the final playoff spot in the Western Conference thanks to a five-game winning streak. Calgary is just two points behind and badly needs Vancouver to win this game. Monday, 10 p.m., Sportsnet Pacific.

Senators at Lightning

Seventh-place Ottawa has a 10-point lead on Tampa but the Senators need a win to both stop a 2-6-2 slide and keep the red-hot Bolts from getting any playoff ideas. Tuesday, 7 p.m., Sportsnet East, RDS.

Maple Leafs at Flames

Like the Sens, the Leafs are sliding thanks to inept defensive play and a suddenly quiet offence. This is the first of a three-game western trip and they need all six points available. Tuesday, 9 p.m., Sportsnet Ontario, West.

Blackhawks at Rangers

Chicago has an eight-game losing skid going and is now in danger of sliding out of playoff contention. It needs to finish its long road trip in style and a win over the Eastern Conference leaders would put some fire back in their dressing room. Thursday, 7 p.m., NHL Network – U.S., MSG.

Maple Leafs at Canucks

Toronto has to finish its western swing with an unlikely win over Vancouver. Chances of that happening will increase if either James Reimer or Jonas Gustavsson finally puts a permanent grip on the No. 1 goaltending job. Saturday, 7 p.m., CBC.
