The Raptors are heading into their All-Star break on a losing note. Toronto had its franchise-record winning streak stopped at 15 games with a 101-91 loss to the Nets in Brooklyn.

The Senators are looking to halt their six-game losing streak as they host the Arizona Coyotes tonight in 1-of-11 N-H-L games. Ottawa is 22 points out of a playoff spot and doesn’t have much to play for other than pride. But the Senators can attempt to play spoiler with the Coyotes fighting for a wild-card spot in the West. Arizona took down Ottawa 5-2 in the last meeting back in October.

Goaltender Frederik Andersen is still questionable to start tonight when the Maple Leafs host the Dallas Stars. Andersen has been out with a neck injury but showed progress by participating this week in practice. Jack Campbell has started Toronto’s last three games and picked up five of a possible six points, including Tuesday’s 35-save performance in a 3-2 overtime win over Arizona.

Both of Alberta’s N-H-L teams are on the road tonight looking for two points. The Edmonton Oilers have a difficult task at hand against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

And the Calgary Flames are in Anaheim to play the Ducks one night after a 5-3 loss against the Kings in L-A.
