For the first time since 1973, there is just one Canadian team in the NHL post-season. Mattias Ekholm Jersey . The Montreal Canadiens represent the nations only hope of ending a 21-year Stanley Cup drought, and thats a long shot. Across the rest of the country, disappointment reigns. "Its not fun, for sure," said Calgary Flames forward Mike Cammalleri, who spent parts of three seasons with Montreal. "The players on the team, I can tell you for sure, feel it. It weighs a lot on you, no doubt. "Thats part of also what makes it so special to play in a Canadian market. When it goes the other way, theres no more rewarding feeling." Playoff hopes slipped away at different times during the 2013-14 season for Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Calgary, culminating Tuesday night when the Leafs were the final team eliminated. Change has already come for some clubs and more is on the way. Flames general manager Jay Feaster, Canucks GM Mike Gillis and Jets coach Claude Noel have already lost their jobs as part of this lost season. And already, Vancouver hired Trevor Linden and Toronto brought in Brendan Shanahan to oversee what comes next. The biggest collapse has been by the Canucks. All seemed well at the start of 2014 for the perennial contenders who came within one win of capturing the Stanley Cup two seasons ago. Daniel and Henrik Sedin had new four-year contract extensions, and a 10-1-2 December had Vancouver in playoff position. Then the bottom fell out. Seven losses in eight games to start January brought signs of trouble. Mercurial coach John Tortorellas infamous attempt to enter the Flames locker room after a brawl made things worse. In March, Gillis blamed injuries and the locker room incident for the Canucks free fall that also included trading goaltender Roberto Luongo to Florida less than a year after sending Cory Schneider to New Jersey. Now Gillis is gone and Linden must pick up the pieces. Shanahan gets to do the same in Toronto, where the Leafs fell apart down the stretch, losing eight straight games in regulation. What seemed like a bright future when they nearly upset Boston in the opening round of last springs playoffs has turned murky. Goaltender Jonathan Berniers groin injury March 13 began the spiral, and even Berniers return couldnt stop the Leafs from disappearing from contention. Unlike the Canucks, the Leafs didnt begin firing people immediately. Instead, they hired Shanahan away from the league office. Ottawa also made the playoffs last season and now is on the outside. Like Toronto, the Senators fell apart in March, a six-game losing streak the most damaging. High-profile addition Bobby Ryan, acquired in a trade with Anaheim, played much of the season in pain before finally having sports hernia surgery. The playoffs might have been unreachable from the outset for the other three Canadian clubs: Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton. The Jets third season in Winnipeg ended like the first two: early. Not even a midseason coaching change from Noel to Paul Maurice made much difference. "Its been a difficult year, where we are, where weve come from, everything weve been through," winger Blake Wheeler told The Canadian Press. No expectations were placed on the Flames in a hard-core rebuilding year under new president of hockey operations Brian Burke. They had 10 players make their NHL debut this season, as coach Bob Hartley was tasked with instilling a work ethic in a young team. Edmonton, despite so many recent top draft picks — Sam Gagner, Jordan Eberle, Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Nail Yakupov — has yet to meld that talent. Popular coaching hire Dallas Eakins couldnt work much improvement, especially on defence, and the Oilers once again will be among the early choosers in the draft. For now, other than in Montreal, Canada is the Not So Great White North on the hockey landscape. Dante Fabbro Jersey . After Mariota was pushed around by Stanford on Thursday, finishing 20/34 with 250 yards and two touchdowns in Oregons Title hope-crushing defeat, hes going to need a poor performance or two from the remaining frontrunners to have a shot at the most coveted individual trophy in college sports.

Ryan Garbutt had a goal and two assists as Dallas snapped a six-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday night. "Were pretty happy with that one," Garbutt said. "We got some tough breaks in the little slide here, and I think tonight we got some breaks and bounces." Jamie Benn scored a rare power-play goal for the Stars, who had not won since New Years Eve. They entered 29th in the NHL with the man advantage. Benn also assisted on the first goal of the game by Erik Cole, just 14 seconds in. Cody Eakin and Trevor Daley each had a goal and an assist for Dallas, which built a 4-1 lead 1:10 into the second period. "Not a good way to start the game," Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. "Going through the game in my end, it seemed like we made three mistakes and they ended up in our net and you cant recover." The final Stars goal came on Daleys shot into an empty net in the last minute. Justin Schultz and Sam Gagner scored for Edmonton, with Taylor Hall assisting on both goals. After the opening faceoff, Daley skated in from the left side, drawing goalie Ilya Bryzgalovs attention. Daley then passed across to Cole, who swept the puck into the open right side. Edmonton tied it at 3:20 when Hall passed to Schultz in the lower right circle. He skated across the front of the net and flipped the puck over Dallas goalie Kari Lehtonen, who finished with 31 saves. Garbutts third goal in two home games against Edmonton gave the Stars a 2-1 lead at 8:35 of the first. "To get that goal right away was important," Stars coach Lindy Ruff saiid. P.K Subban Jersey. "Obviously, if you sit right there at 1-1, a lot of things can happen." A pregame talk between Ruff and Garbutt seemed to help. "I had a conversation with him again about some plays in the previous game that I didnt like," Ruff said. "I thought Ryans play was excellent. Tonight might have been one of his best." Benns power-play goal followed less than 2 minutes later. Tyler Seguin passed from the top of the right circle to Benn on the left. His drive beat Bryzgalov. It was only the seventh goal at home with a man advantage in 81 opportunities for Dallas this season. Overall, the Stars entered with a 12.4 per cent success rate (20 for 161). "Tyler made a great play and (Benn) a great shot. Weve had that same look a few times and havent scored," Ruff said. "Hopefully, that leads to better times ahead for the power play." Dallas fourth goal came at 1:10 of the second by Eakin. Antoine Roussel sent a centring pass to Eakin from the right corner. The Oilers controlled play for most of the second period but came away only with Gagners goal. He got the puck in the crease after Lehtonen got tangled up with Daley. NOTES: Benns goal was his 16th, and third on the power play. ... Halls two assists gave him seven points (five goals, two assists) in the last six games. ... Dallas Ray Whitney played in his 1,300th NHL game. ... The last time the Stars lost seven in a row was in March 2009. ... Late in the game, Edmontons Ales Hemsky was hobbling on a swollen ankle. "The early X-ray doesnt show anything, but I think were going to have to delve a little deeper," Eakins said.
