Raptors set new team mark for winning streak

TORONTO—There was almost no hoopla to celebrate the historic moment when the final buzzer sounded—just a loud announcement over the public address system to the fans at the Air Canada Centre.

‘Music City’ set for party

NASHVILLE—“Music City” finally is ready to show the NHL just how big a party this town can throw, and it’s only fitting that Barry Trotz will be coaching in Nashville’s first all-star game.

Trotz helped build hockey in Nashville, coaching the Predators from their expansion start in 1997, and he earned a trip to this all-star game thanks to the Washington Capitals.

Atkinson had his third-career hat trick and Brandon Saad scored twice to help the Blue Jackets beat the struggling Montreal Canadiens 5-2 last night to snap a three-game losing streak.
