The Penguins took control with three goals – two by Kessel – in a 7:39 span in the second period.Matt Murray made 27 saves for Pittsburgh, which has won 11 of 13 to overtake Washington for the Metropolitan Division lead. Since the Penguins were shut out by Carolina on Jan. 4, they are 16-3-1.They were just as busy off the ice, completing a mid-game trade in which they picked up center Derick Brassard from the Ottawa Senators. As part of the complicated three-team deal, they sent defenseman Ian Cole to Ottawa and forward Ryan Reaves to the Vegas Golden Knights.Teuvo Teravainen scored for the Hurricanes.JETS 4, BLUES 0ST. LOUIS (AP) – Connor Hellebuyck made 34 saves for his sixth shutout of the season and Blake Wheeler and Kyle Connor each had a goal for Winnipeg.Hellebuyck has three shutouts in six career games against St. Louis.Nic Petan and Patrik Laine also scored to help the Jets win for the fourth time in five games.Jake Allen made 19 saves for the Blues. They are 0-4-1 in their last five.BLACKHAWKS 3 www.officiallightningprostore.com/authen...ail-sergachev-jersey , SHARKS 1CHICAGO (AP) – Jean-Francois Berube made 42 saves in his first start for Chicago.Defenseman Jan Rutta, activated from injured reserve Friday, and Nick Schmaltz scored, and Artem Anisimov added an empty-netter with 30.5 seconds left.The Blackhawks won their second straight and third in four games following an eight-game losing streak that dropped them to last place in the Central Division.Timo Meier scored for San Jose.WILD 4, RANGERS 1NEW YORK (AP) – Mikael Granlund and Eric Staal each scored twice and Devan Dubnyk made 22 saves in Minnesota’s victory over New York.The Wild completed a three-game sweep of New York-area teams after beating the Monday night and New Jersey on Thursday night.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Their own version of the “double-doink” helped James van Riemsdyk and the Flyers end a long losing streak.Van Riemsdyk had a goal and an assist Ondrej Palat Jersey , Carter Hart stopped 37 shots and the Flyers beat the Dallas Stars 2-1 on Thursday night to halt an eight-game skid.Travis Konecny also scored for the Flyers, who entered with a league-worst 36 points.Van Riemsdyk made it 2-0 with 11:09 left in the second when his deflection of Claude Giroux’s shot went off goalie Anton Khudobin’s left skate, then defenseman Esa Lindell’s right skate before crossing the goal line. The goal was reminiscent of Bears kicker Cody Parkey’s 43-yard last-second field goal miss, dubbed the “double-doink” in Philadelphia, in the Eagles’ 16-15 win over Chicago in an NFC wild-card playoff game Sunday.“It’s a funny game,” van Riemsdyk said. “Sometimes you don’t get those bounces. We certainly got some of those bounces tonight.”Van Riemsdyk, who the Flyers signed to a five-year Ryan Callahan Jersey , $35 million contract this offseason, was bumped up to the first line after playing on the fourth line in Philadelphia’s 5-3 loss at Washington on Tuesday. He recorded his seventh goal in his 28th contest after setting a career high with 36 goals last season with the Toronto Maple Leafs.“It was a great job being at the net,” interim coach Scott Gordon said. “(Van Riemsdyk) is a proud player. I know what he’s capable of. He has great offensive skills and great presence at the net front.”Jamie Benn scored for Dallas, which lost for the third time in eight games. Tyler Seguin had an assist to extend his point streak to seven games. He has at least one point in every contest since he and Benn were harshly criticized by CEO Jim Lites on Dec. 28.“Not enough players having an impact with the puck or without the puck,” Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. “We didn’t have desperation until the third period.”Benn ended Hart’s bid for his first career shutout when his wrist shot from the slot with 2:51 left went off the goalie’s glove. Other than that, the Flyers rookie was stellar.The 20-year-old Hart made his eighth start and improved to 3-4-1. He was solid all night and made a pair of key saves in the third period, stopping John Klingberg’s shot through a screen with nine minutes remaining and denying Alexander Radulov’s wrist shot from the hash marks about a minute later.Hart is one of the NHL record-tying seven goalies Philadelphia has used this season.“He’s been unbelievable www.officiallightningprostore.com/authen...ryan-mcdonagh-jersey ,” Konecny said of Hart. “We feel bad for him. He’s stood on his head a bunch of times for us. Every time he’s been in there, he’s given us a good opportunity.”The Flyers improved to 4-7-2 under Gordon and got their fourth win in 17 games.The Flyers appeared to retake a two-goal lead 1:48 later, but Jakub Voracek’s apparent score was waived off after a video review due to goalie interference.NOTES: The Stars return home Saturday to begin a six-game homestand against St. Louis. Dallas’ next road game isn’t until Feb. 2 at Nashville. … Dallas’ streak of consecutive games with a power-play goal ended at six. … The teams will play again in the second and final game of the season series on April 2 in Dallas. … Seguin has 11 points (six goals, five assists) during his streak.UP NEXTDallas: Open six-game homestand on Saturday vs. St. Louis.Philadelphia: At New Jersey on Saturday.

NEW YORK (AP) — Petr Mrazek and the Carolina Hurricanes had a reason to enjoy themselves, too, on Friday night.Mrazek made 27 saves and the Hurricanes spoiled a celebration at Madison Square Garden that honored the last Rangers team to win the Stanley Cup, blanking New York 3-0.Warren Foegele scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period as the Hurricanes ended a 16-game losing streak at the Garden. He took a pass from Saku Maenalanen in the slot and wristed a shot past Henrik Lundqvist at 6:43.“It was nice to get rewarded there,” Foegele said. “It was a great play by (Kegger) Greg McKegg to enter the zone with speed and then a beautiful pass by Saku.”Rookie Andrei Svechnikov and Brock McGinn added empty-net goals as Carolina won its third in a row. It was Carolina’s first win at MSG since a 4-3 victory on Oct. 29, 2010.In a 45-minute pregame ceremony, Mark Messier, Brian Leetch and the players and coaches from the Rangers’ 1994 Stanley Cup team were introduced. They were seated at center ice as a sellout crowd cheered the commemoration of the 25th anniversary of that championship.To honor that club, Lundqvist wore a goaltender’s mask similar to Mike Richter’s with the Statue of Liberty prominently displayed on the front. Lundqvist’s mask also has “1994” painted on the right side with a picture of Richter, his name and number.“Unbelievable. It’s a humbling thing. What a great statement by him http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-matt-dumba-jersey ,” Richter said before the game.“(He) didn’t have to do it. It’s very classy. I was shocked. … Coming from him, look at the career the man has put together. He’s been nothing but consistent from the day he arrived. He’s had just a remarkable career, so it means a lot coming from him.”Rangers coach David Quinn was disappointed in his team’s effort in the game.“There was definitely a lack of urgency which was surprising,” he said. “It certainly was set up to be a special night. We just didn’t capitalize on it.”Carolina, which is 13-4-1 in its past 18 games, climbed within a point of the Pittsburgh Penguins for the final playoff position in the Eastern Conference.“I think we know where we are in the standings and how important each game is,” Foegele said. “We need wins and it’s important we got two points there.”These Rangers are near the bottom of the Eastern Conference.After a tightly played opening period, both teams had better scoring chances in the second.Kevin Hayes took a pass from Jimmy Vesey and faked Mrazek and attempted to stuff the puck into the net, but Hurricanes defenseman Jaccob Slavin swept it out from the crease.“That was a big save by him,” Mrazek said. “Hayes did a nice job holding the puck for a little bit, I get out and a great save by Slavin.”Mrazek closed the second period by making a stellar stick-side save on Mika Zibanejad with the Rangers on the power play.Lundqvist kept the game scoreless late in the opening period as he stopped Nino Niederreiter on a breakaway. He finished with 30 saves.“We definitely had our looks, especially in the second period,” Lundqvist said. “It came down to one play. Unfortunately we were on the wrong end. We had our opportunities. But they defended really well the whole game.”NOTES: For the national anthem, the Garden replayed John Amirante’s version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” that he performed during the ’94 Cup Final. … The Rangers are 1-2-1 on their homestand. … Defenseman Haydn Fleury was scratched for Carolina.

DETROIT (AP) — With the top two lines taking the lead Authentic David Pastrnak Jersey , the Florida Panthers found a style of play that suits them Saturday.Roberto Luongo made 33 saves, Mike Hoffman and Evegnii Dadonov each scored and the Panthers beat the Detroit Red Wings 2-1.Hoffman, Dadonov, leading scorer Jonathan Huberdeau and captain Aleksander Barkov helped Florida play more aggressively through center ice and generate offensive chances. Huberdeau and Barkov each had two assists. It was Huberdeau’s 11th multipoint game in his last 14 — he has five goals and 25 points in that span — and Barkov has seven points in his past four games.“I don’t mind playing on either of our lines, because there’s so much talent,” said Hoffman, who scored his 16th goal. “Obviously, it is great to play with Barkov and Hubs (Huberdeau), but the way Dads (Dadonov) is scoring, I think things are going to stay the same for a while. I’m getting plenty of chances with my guys on the second line.”Hoffman’s power-play goal gave Florida a 1-0 lead 3:09 into the game. It was his 16th goal and came nine seconds after Detroit defenseman Dennis Cholowski went off for holding. Dadonov made it 2-0 with 2:39 left in the first period. It was his 17th goal.“I thought we got back to our identity today,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said.“We were fast in the neutral zone instead of going side to side.”Thomas Vanek scored for Detroit and Jimmy Howard had 21 saves.“I thought we had enough opportunities to win the game Jake DeBrusk Jersey , we got to score. First period not much happened either way,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said.“They got a power play, made a nice play, we had a missed coverage and they score. Then we have an offensive-zone faceoff and five seconds later it’s in our net.”Vanek made it 2-1 at the 10-minute mark of the second period with his fifth goal.NOTE: Red Wings F Andreas Athanasiou was a late scratch with an upper-body injury. “I don’t have any idea beyond that he couldn’t play tonight,” Blashill said. “Whether he’ll have the chance to play tomorrow (in Toronto, Sunday). I would call him questionable.” Athanasiou was replaced by F Wade Megan. … Florida was without LW Jamie McGinn (back), C Derek MacKenzie (shoulder), C Vincent Trocheck (ankle) and C Nick Bjugstad (upper body). … Detroit was already missing RW Anthony Mantha, D Danny DeKeyser and D Mike Green because of injuries.UP NEXT:Florida: Visits Chicago on Sunday night.Detroit: Visits Toronto on Sunday night. WASHINGTON (AP) Make it 600 goals and counting for Alex Ovechkin, and give the Washington Capitals two more points for the tough playoff race in the Eastern Conference.Ovechkin scored twice in another historic performance and Evgeny Kuznetsov had the overtime winner as the Capitals returned to first place by beating the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Monday night.The 32-year-old Ovechkin scored during a 5-on-3 power play in the first period and then put back a rebound past Connor Hellebuyck for No. 600 in the second. The Russian winger became the 20th player and fourth-fastest in NHL history to the milestone and is on pace to lead the league in goals for the seventh time with 42 on the season.”Of course it’s special,” he said. ”You can see when I score the goal Womens Patrice Bergeron Jersey , everybody tried to find me, everybody tried to look at me. I knew if I’m gonna have another one, I’m gonna score.”Ovechkin continued a season-long trend of scoring a high volume of goals for the Capitals, who lost significant talent from back-to-back Presidents’ Trophy-winning teams. He has roughly a fifth of Washington’s goals this season and needed to be on his game against Patrik Laine and Winnipeg.Laine entered with an 11-game point streak and scored his 41st goal of the season to make it 16 in his past 12. Nikolaj Ehlers also scored a 4-on-4 goal for Winnipeg, which got 40 saves from Connor Hellebuyck.But everyone was left in awe of the great Ovechkin, who could become the first player age 32 or older to lead the NHL in goals since Phil Esposito in 1974-75.”I’m sure one day we’ll look at it and get perspective on it,” Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. ”But it’s all a part of this process and he’s not fazed by it. He said the other day 40’s good but 50’s nicer and he’s going to get 50 goals. You can just tell he’s very, very determined and he is a historic player.”Ovechkin joined Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Brett Hull as the only players to score 600 in fewer than 1,000 games. He said his wife, Nastya Youth Brandon Carlo Jersey , who just returned from a weeklong trip to Moscow, had a feeling he would accomplish the feat against the Jets.”Right now parents in Moscow and she makes it,” Ovechkin said. ”It’s kind of nice when someone from your family is in the stands.”Ovechkin got two lengthy standing ovations from the crowd that has been dazzled by his accomplishments since he made his debut in 2005. It was of little surprise he delivered in what was a showdown with another fellow 40-goal scorer in Laine, who idolized Ovechkin growing up.”I was pretty close watching it,” Laine said of Ovechkin’s goal 3:53 into the second period. ”I was in a good spot – just behind him. I was there when he made history, so I can maybe watch that someday and show that I was there getting the minus on the ice.”Kuznetsov got his 21st of the season on a breakaway 4:11 into overtime. He joked that Ovechkin scoring 600 was ”a free meal” for him and was thrilled to put a positive capper on the night for Washington.”I feel like my legs were 15 years old,” Kuznetsov said. ”I don’t have a good overtime the last 10 games probably. I just wanted to score that because I know that one point will make a huge difference at the end of the year.”NOTES: Capitals G Philipp Grubauer stopped 26 shots in his third consecutive start over No. 1 goaltender Braden Holtby, who is 1-5-2 with a 4.83 goals-against average and .854 save percentage in his past eight games. … Ds Christian Djoos and Madison Bowey and Fs Alex Chiasson and Travis Boyd were healthy scratches for Washington. … Jets G Steve Mason is out two to three weeks after a knee scope.

GLENDALE Los Angeles Kings Hoodies Womens , Ariz. (AP) — Already down a goalie, the New Jersey Devils watched MacKenzie Blackwood leave in the first period with a lower-body injury.Keith Kinkaid filled in nicely for someone who hadn’t played in four games.Kinkaid stopped 21 shots and had two saves in a shootout, lifting the New Jersey Devils to a 3-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Friday night.“It was nice to see Keith come in and he was strong for us,” Devils coach John Hynes said. “He got better and better as the game went on.”Kinkaid started the season as New Jersey’s No. 1 goalie, but the Devils have been riding Blackwood’s recent success with Cory Schneider out.Blackwood, making his seventh start in nine games seemed to tweak his leg midway through the first period and was replaced by Kinkaid late. Kinkaid gave up goals to Conor Garland and Christian Fischer in regulation, but stopped Alex Galchenyuk and Nick Cousins in the shootout.Kyle Palmeiri and Drew Stafford scored in the shootout for the Devils, who have won four of six.In regulation, New Jersey’s Nico Hischier scored his 11th goal on a shot that didn’t go into the net and Blake Coleman had his 12th of the season.“It was a good effort,” Stafford said. “It wasn’t the prettiest game, but we found a way.”Arizona’s Darcy Kuemper made a pair of spectacular saves in overtime, swiping a puck out of the crease after it trickled through on one http://www.flamesshoponline.com/authentic-jaromir-jagr-jersey , snatching another shot from a seated position on another. He allowed goals on the two shots he faced in the shootout and finished with 33 saves.The injury-depleted Coyotes went 0 for 5 on the power play, including a lengthy 5 on 3, and have lost 11 of 15.“Five, six regulars out, I hate to keep saying it,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. “We worked hard, but you could tell the skill level wasn’t there sometimes. We’re just grinding away.”The Devils scored a goal 1:05 into the game that never actually went into the net.New Jersey had a 2-on-1 after an Arizona neutral-zone turnover and Kyle Palmieri fed the puck to Hischier. Kuemper got a piece of Hischier’s shot and the puck shot in the air just as Arizona forward Clayton Keller crashed into the goal, dislodging it. Initially called no goal, the officials awarded it to Hischier upon review, ruling the puck would have gone in had Keller not knocked the goal off its moorings.“The puck was in the air, so I don’t think you can assume it wasn’t going to hit the top of the net,” Tocchet said. “It went to Toronto. I don’t know.”Garland tied it late in the first period Johnny Gaudreau Jersey Kids , intercepting a pass by New Jersey’s Pavel Zacha in front of the crease and slipping the puck under Kinkaid’s left pad.Fischer put the Coyotes up midway through the second period, beating Kinkaid stick side with a wrister from the left circle.Coleman tied it late in the period, one-timing in a pass from Travis Zajac that hit Kuemper’s left pad and trickled through his legs.Kuemper made a spectacular save in the third period to prevent a short-handed goal, doing to splits to get a skate on Hischier’s breakaway attempt.It wasn’t enough. Arizona missed on some chances in the third period and overtime, and couldn’t get anything past Kinkaid in the shootout.“We were on the game, but I don’t think we do enough to win that game,” Coyotes captain Oliver Ekman-Larsson said.NOTES: Arizona C Nick Schmaltz missed his second straight game with a lower-body injury. He was placed on injured reserve on Thursday and is listed as week-to-week by the team. … Schneider missed his ninth straight game with a lower-body injury, but has been skating on his own.

Frustration over losing is no excuse for refusing to wear a silver medal around your neck, the International Ice Hockey Federation ruled Wednesday.The IIHF issued multi-game suspensions for five players and three coaches of Sweden’s national team for pocketing or tossing their silver medals into the stands during the closing ceremony of the world junior championships in January. The actions occurred immediately following Sweden’s 3-1 loss to Canada in the gold-medal game at the 10-nation tournament held in Buffalo, New York.”The players have, by their actions, shown a lack of self-control Los Angeles Kings Hats Womens ,” the IIHF said. ”Taking off the silver medals presented to the players shows not only the disrespect against the spectators and the organizers of the championship, but also the disrespect against their opponents and winners of the championship.”The Swedes violated an IIHF rule requiring players and team officials to wear medals around their necks during the closing ceremony and postgame media availabilities.Captain Lias Andersson faced the most severe discipline in being issued a four-game ban from next year’s world juniors. Upon being presented his medal, Andersson skated away and immediately tossed it over the glass to a fan.”I didn’t want it. That guy in the stands wanted it more than me,” Andersson said, noting he has another silver medal just like it back home after losing the Under-18 championship.He said it made little difference the medal was eventually returned to him.”I’m just going to have it at home in some box or something,” Andersson said.Defenseman Rasmus Dahlin, projected to be the No. 1 pick in the NHL draft in June, was suspended from playing the first two games of the Under-18 world championship next year. The ban does not apply to any other league.Forwards Axel Jonsson and Jesper Boqvist and goalie Olle Eriksson Ek were suspended from playing the first two games at the world juniors next year.Head coach Tomas Monten was issued a three-game ban from next year’s world juniors for putting the silver medal into his pocket during the ceremony. Assistants Nizze Landen and Henrik Stridh were handed two-game suspensions.”Losing a game is part of any competition and of the sport of ice hockey, and does not excuse any unfair and unsportsmanlike behavior,” the IIHF ruled. ”To be `frustrated’ by the loss of a game is not the right attitude.”The players and coaches have three weeks to appeal the rulings.

RALEIGH New York Rangers Hoodies Authentic , N.C. — Even with the recent struggles, there’s something to look forward to for the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday.It’s a much-discussed “Whalers Night” when the Boston Bruins visit for the game at PNC Arena.The Hurricanes are recognizing their history.Article continues below ...For the first time since relocating to North Carolina in 1997, the team will wear retro Hartford Whalers jerseys. The vintage green sweaters will be part of the scene.“We practiced in the gear the other day and it kind of took me back, ‘What are we doing?'” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said.The game will include several Whalers-themed off-ice activities. Plus, former Whalers standout Mike Rogers will be honored during a ceremonial faceoff.The Hurricanes also will don the Whalers logo for its road game on March 5 in Boston.Despite the historical perspective, it’s still a chance for the Hurricanes to get going in the right direction in the final game of a five-game homestand.“I know it’s going to be pretty exciting for a lot of people,” Brind’Amour said of the Whalers memories. “Different, and I think that’s good. But it’s still another game.”It’s another one the Hurricanes desperately need to win. They’re 2-6-2 in their last 10 outings.The Bruins are feeling good after a 5-2 home victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday. It marked a tremendous return to action for veteran center Patrice Bergeron.He notched four points (two goals, two assists) in the game.“I’ve been missing it for so long New York Rangers Hats Authentic ,” said Bergeron, who missed the previous 16 games.Bergeron, who’s in his 15th season, registered his 300th career goal in Saturday’s game.“I was trying to talk to the guys and be vocal that we have to enjoy it and go out there and just have fun,” Bergeron said.Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy, whose team holds a three-game winning streak, will have to manage a tweaked lineup with Bergeron apparently going strong upon his return.“It’s more about it’s an opportunity for someone to get going offensively,” Cassidy said of updates to the line combinations.But with Bergeron back, it “makes us that much better Custom New York Rangers Jerseys ,” the coach said. “We’ve been playing well lately without him, but he just gives an emotional boost. … It’s a guy that you can throw out there any time and you know he’s going to get the job done.”Plus, the Bruins don’t want to disrupt rhythm developed by some young players recently promoted. Winger Ryan Donato said he’s becoming more comfortable.“All those habits you get when you’re playing in every situation,” Donato said.After three consecutive starts for goalie Jaroslav Halak, Cassidy indicated that it will be Tuukka Rask in the net against Carolina.In the last two games combined, Carolina has a total of 78 shots but only one goal.The Hurricanes used goalie Curtis McElhinney, who was coming off an injury and in game action for the first time since Dec. 5, in Saturday night’s loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. That figures they’ll turn to Petr Mrazek for Sunday’s game.Boston beat Carolina 3-2 on Oct. 30 in Raleigh. CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau’s scoring drought is over.Gaudreau’s first goal in 10 games and 30th of the season was one of two third-period scores for the Calgary Flames in a 4-2 victory over the New York Islanders on Wednesday.Austin Czarnik www.officialsenators.com , with his third goal in as many games, broke a 2-2 tie 6:10 into the third and Gaudreau scored 29 seconds later on a power play.“I probably could have found the net with two or three different looks I had. Just the way it’s been going,” said Gaudreau, the team’s leading scorer who tied his career high for goals set in 2015-16.The goal came on a slap shot into the top corner, just eight seconds into a man advantage.“I had a pretty good lane there. It was a good play up top, across the zone. I had a lot of time and a lot of space and I just wired it,” Gaudreau said.Calgary dominated the first two periods, outshooting New York 21-6, but the Flames only led by one goal. The Islanders tied it 2-2 on Anders Lee’s 20th goal 1:18 into the third.But it was tied for less than five minutes.“That’s probably as good as we’ve played on the defensive side Ottawa Senators T-Shirts Authentic ,” said Travis Hamonic, who had a goal against his former team. “We’re confident and when you’re playing good teams like that, you have to show up and we did, right from the start.”Hamonic’s goal at 15:59 of the first made it 2-0 for Calgary.“I’d be lying if I didn’t say it felt good,” Harmonic said. “So many good friends and so much fun and great memories on Long Island so to be able to put one in tonight, it obviously feels good.”Mikael Backlund also scored for Calgary. Elias Lindholm had an assist to extend his point streak to six games (two goals, seven assists). The Flames have won three straight after going winless in four and continue to lead the Pacific Division and Western Conference.Casey Cizikas and Lee scored for New York.The surging Islanders, who opened a three-game road trip through Western Canada, lost in regulation for just the third time in 16 games.“We got a big ‘F.’ Failure. We had too many passengers Ottawa Senators Hoodies Authentic ,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. “We were poor on our exits. We were poor on our execution. We were poor on our battles. We were poor on our races. We were poor.”The Islanders’ lead over Washington atop the Metropolitan division remained at three points.“We didn’t come out hard enough and that’s the bottom line. I think we showed them a little too much respect,” Cizikas said. “Down low in their own end I thought we gave too many pucks away. For a team that likes to get the puck down low and work it, we just couldn’t do that tonight. We have to have a short memory because we have a big one (Thursday).”Backlund opened the scoring just five minutes in on a two-on-one. Michael Frolik landed a perfect pass on Backlund’s stick as he cut to the net and he neatly tucked the puck past Thomas Greiss.Greiss, who entered the game with an NHL-leading .930 save percentage, finished with 28 stops and fell to 17-9-2.Starting a fourth consecutive game for the first time since the first four games of the season, Mike Smith made 17 saves and improved to 17-11-1.“We have to be that air tight moving forward and we are capable of playing that game,” Flames coach Bill Peters said. “We need to maintain our strong offensive game while being sound defensively.”Notes: Peters switched around his top two lines with Matthew Tkachuk moving onto the top line with Gaudreau and Sean Monahan. Lindholm played right wing with Backlund and Frolik… TJ Brodie returned after missing the last game due to injury.NOTES: Flames coach Bill Peters switched around his top two lines with Matthew Tkachuk moving onto the top line with Gaudreau and Sean Monahan.

The Arizona Coyotes aren’t used to going a whole week without losing Devan Dubnyk Jersey , especially twice in one season.But the Coyotes will try to win four in a row for the second time this fall when they visit the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.Arizona (12-11-2) hasn’t had two winning streaks of at least four games in the same season since 2011-12. The Coyotes had two five-game winning streaks and a six-game winning streak that season before losing to the Kings in the Western Conference Finals.Article continues below ...The Coyotes will need to extend their winning streak without right wing Michael Grabner, who was struck in the left eye with an opponent’s stick during a 6-1 win against the visiting St. LouisBlues on Saturday night and is out indefinitely.Grabner is tied for third on the team with six goals.The Coyotes recalled forward Conor Garland from the Tucson Roadrunners of the American Hockey League.The Kings (10-16-1) haven’t won more than two games in a row this season, but they’ll try to build off their 2-0 win against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday night.Jonathan Quick had 34 saves to become the third goalie for Los Angeles to record a shutout this season.“We’ve kind of dug ourselves a little bit of a hole here and we need to win games,” Quick said.The Kings have won two in a row at Staples Center to improve to 6-8-1 at home. They haven’t won three straight at home since the end of last season.“We’re going to have to get some victories as we go here,” Kings coach Willie Desjardins said.“We hadn’t been as good at home as we would’ve liked to have been.”Los Angeles has been scouring the waiver wire in recent days and they’ve claimed two wings they believe can help the lowest-scoring team in the league.The Kings claimed Brendan Leipsic off waivers from the Vancouver Canucks on Monday. Leipsic, 24 Womens Eric Staal Jersey , has played 81 games in his NHL career with the Canucks, Vegas Golden Knights and Toronto Maple Leafs.He made his NHL debut with the Maple Leafs in 2015-16 and became the first Toronto player to score in his NHL debut since Nikolay Kulemin in 2008. The Golden Knights selected him in the NHL Expansion Draft in 2017 and he played 44 games for Vegas before he was traded to the Canucks last February.He had five points (two goals, three assists) in 17 games with the Canucks this season.The Kings claimed Nikita Scherbak off waivers from the Montreal Canadiens on Sunday. Scherbak was a first-round draft pick of Montreal in 2014.The Coyotes acquired center Nick Schmaltz from the Chicago Blackhawks on Nov. 25 in exchange for forwards Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini.Schmaltz has four points (one goal, three assists) in the past two games.“He’s a skilled guy, he’s poised with the puck, his lateral movement’s excellent http://www.minnesotawildteamshops.com/au...ared-spurgeon-jersey ,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet told reporters after the win against St. Louis. “I think the sky’s the limit on him. There’s another level to him. He’s done a nice job for us. We’re excited to have him.” OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Jean-Gabriel Pageau has scored a few highlight-reel goals for Ottawa. Thursday’s winner is going to stand out among them.Pageau scored on a penalty shot in overtime to lift the Ottawa Senators over the Florida Panthers 3-2 on Thursday night.Pageau beat goalie James Reimer five-hole on the winner.”I was pretty tired and just tried to get my breath back and that’s the only move I know so I just tried to do it again and obviously it worked again,” said Pageau, who also scored in regulation.The Panthers dropped three points behind New Jersey with a game in hand for the final wild card in the Eastern Conference. The Devils lost to Pittsburgh 4-3 in overtime Thursday.”Any other time of year you play a back-to-back game and you get a point out of the building on a back-to-back you’d be happy with it,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. ”Obviously two points are what matter the most for us in the race that we’re in. We saw what was happening on the scoreboard on the Jumbotron, and it was a chance to gain a point on a team we’re chasing and we didn’t get it done.”Magnus Paajarvi also scored in regulation for the Senators Jason Zucker Jersey , and Craig Anderson stopped 24 shots.”It was time because we deserved the last game and we deserved this one,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. ”I think Reimer has played terrific against us this year, and I’ve been told it’s not just this year for some reason, and he was doing it again tonight. I thought we deserved more goals than that.”Aaron Ekblad and Evgeni Dadonov scored for the Panthers, and Reimer made 27 saves.Both teams had several chances in overtime before Pageau converted with 16 seconds left after being tripped by Mike Matheson on a breakaway.Paajarvi tied it 16 seconds into the third period by tipping Zack Smith’s shot.Erik Karlsson assisted on Paajarvi’s goal for his 50th of the season. It’s his fifth time reaching the mark.Pageau had a number of chances in the second period and made good on one and was robbed on another.Ottawa took a 1-0 lead on Pageau’s 13th as he chased down his own shot that went wide and tucked it in behind Reimer 1:24 into the period.The Panthers tied it with a power-play goal when Ekblad tied a franchise record for goals by a defenseman with his 16th. Just 1:31, later Florida took the lead as Dadonov took a pass in the slot and rang a shot in off the post.Pageau looked like he had a sure goal late in the period Joel Eriksson Ek Jersey , but Reimer made a great glove save to preserve the lead.The Senators appeared to open the scoring at the 14-minute mark as Pageau broke in on Reimer, but upon review it was ruled the puck never crossed the goal line.NOTES: Ottawa D Chris Wideman was shut down for the season with a hamstring injury. … Ottawa F Mark Stone skated Thursday and is hopeful of playing soon. Stone missed his tenth straight game with a leg injury. … Senators F Marian Gaborik missed his fourth straight game with an undisclosed injury. … Florida’s Maxim Mamin, Radim Vrbata, Connor Brickley, Micheal Haley and Ian McCoshen were healthy scratches.UP NEXTPanthers: Play at Boston on Saturday.Senators: Play at Detroit on Saturday.—

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland has suddenly come to appreciate how valuable first-round draft picks are when a team’s not in playoff contention at the NHL trade deadline.”I’ve been on that on the other side Adidas Matt Calvert Jersey ,” Holland said, recalling Detroit’s heydays in the late 1990s and early 2000s, when the Red Wings were competing with Dallas, Colorado and New Jersey in vying to add top talent to strengthen their playoff run. ”When those teams made a move, we were aware of it.”The Red Wings were far from that position, sitting in a tie for 12th and five points out of contention, when the trade deadline struck on Monday afternoon. Though Holland wasn’t discounting Detroit’s chances of making a late-season push, he wasn’t exactly dealing from a position of strength.Rather than adding a player, the Red Wings subtracted . They traded established forward Tomas Tartar to the Western Conference-leading Vegas Golden Knights for three draft picks, including a first-round selection.”This wasn’t a rental in this case,” Holland said of Tatar, a three-time 20-goal-scorer with three years left on his contract. ”But the trading of the first-round picks speaks to those teams that have had great years and feel that they’ve got to do something that really impacts their team.”The Golden Knights weren’t the only contender giving up high draft picks on a day 18 trades were completed.Six first-round selections – two of them conditional – were dealt Monday Adidas Conor Timmins Jersey , the most to move on the final day of NHL trading since at least 2008, according to league figures. And no first-rounders had moved on each of the previous two trade-deadline days.San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson attributed the amount of first-rounders dealt to how tight the playoff races are, particularly in the Western Conference. Before games on Monday, six points separated the Sharks, who sit second in the Pacific Division standings, and Colorado, which was 11th in the West.”It’s supply and demand of those players that can make a difference,” Wilson said after trading a conditional 2019 first-round pick to acquire Buffalo’s Evander Kane . ”Some people would say pricey, but it almost always is pricey at this time of year when you have competitive juices flowing.”The East-leading Tampa Bay Lightning traded a 2018 first-round pick, a conditional 2019 first-rounder and three players to acquire Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh and J.T. Miller, New York’s second-leading scorer.The Winnipeg Jets gave up a first-round pick to add even more offense to the NHL’s fourth-best scoring team in acquiring Paul Stastny from St. Louis.Nashville parted ways with a first-round pick to land forward Ryan Hartman from Chicago.Those deals don’t include the first-round pick the Rangers acquired as part of the trade that sent Rick Nash to Boston on Sunday. And Pittsburgh gave up a first-round pick last week as part of a three-team trade to add Ottawa’s Derick Brassard.Rangers GM Jeff Gorton was the big winner as far as accumulating top draft picks to help spur an overhaul of New York’s aging roster.”There’s a lot of opportunity to grow as a team and make our team better,” he said. ”I feel like we’re just starting.”The Rangers now have three first-round picks and seven over the first three rounds Adidas Ian Cole Jersey , leaving Gorton with the option of using some of them in trades.”Whatever it takes,” he said. ”We’re looking forward to it. Having three picks is exciting.”Some executives found the price of parting with a first-round pick too steep, which prevented them from making moves. They included the Columbus Blue Jackets, who gave up a third-round pick and role players in acquiring defenseman Ian Cole from Ottawa and forward Thomas Vanek from Vancouver.”I guess we were out of that competition because we kind of established our position from the start that we don’t want to give up a first-round pick,” GM Jarmo Kekalainen said before noting the Blue Jackets dealt their 2017 first-round pick to Vegas as part of the NHL expansion draft last June.”I can already feel the effects of the one-year hole, I definitely didn’t want to feel the effects of the two-year hole in the depth chart,” Kekalainen added. ”That was a non-starter.”—AP Hockey Writers Larry Lage and Stephen Whyno, sports writers Josh Dubow and Mitch Stacy, and freelance writers Denis P. Gorman contributed to this report.— The Columbus Blue Jackets‘ offseason move that received the most attention was the addition of center Riley Nash. Not much attention was paid to the acquisition of Anthony Duclair.But Duclair is making people stand up and take notice on the ice in his first season in Columbus. He certainly attracted plenty of attention with his goal in the Blue Jackets’ 6-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night that set social media abuzz and made all the highlight shows.At 17:53 of the first period, Duclair skated down the ice to the right dot after taking a pass from defenseman Ryan Murray. Duclair lost an edge while making a cut and, while on his knees, gathered the puck Adidas Philipp Grubauer Jersey , got back up, fell again after he was tripped, but was able to shoot the puck past Flyers goaltender Calvin Pickard for his second goal of the season.Article continues below ...“It was a nice goal. I don’t know how he did it,” Blue Jackets center Pierre-Luc Dubois said. “I don’t think he could do it again, but if he could, it would be great for us and great for the fans. That was an amazing goal. I’ve never seen a goal like that in my life.”“I was pretty lucky,” Duclair said.Duclair will put his skills on display again Saturday night when the Blue Jackets (4-2-0) and the 23-year-old winger face the Chicago Blackhawks (3-1-2), one of the two teams he was with last season, at Nationwide Arena.After signing a one-year, free agent contract with the Blue Jackets on July 4, Duclair made the opening day roster and so far, has seized upon the chance to play mostly on a line with center Alexander Wennberg and winger Nick Foligno.Duclair has four points (two goals Adidas Cale Makar Jersey , two assists) in six games after producing eight points in 23 games with the Blackhawks last year before he was sent to the Arizona Coyotes.“I’m getting an opportunity to play with (Wennberg) and (Foligno) here,” Duclair said. “I definitely want to stay with those two guys. They’re very skilled, very smart. We complement each other well.”Cam Atkinson scored two goals in the win over the Flyers. He’s tied with Josh Anderson for the team lead with four goals. Artemi Panarin, also a former Blackhawks player, had two assists to boost his team-best point total to nine (three goals, six assists).The Blue Jackets scored three goals in the second period after falling behind in the first.“We got out legs under us after the first period and started playing our game, our style in the second and third periods,” Atkinson said.The Blue Jackets rebounded from a humbling 8-2 road loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday night. They’ve scored at least five goals for the third time in their last four games.“We have a lot of things to iron out and it’s not going to happen overnight,” Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. “We’re not going to go into any panic mode. We’re going to go about our business and try to get better each day.”The Blackhawks had scored at least three goals in each of their first five games, all of those in overtime, before losing 4-1 at home on Thursday night to the Arizona Coyotes.Jonathan Toews and Alex DeBrincat have contributed points in each of Chicago’s first six games. Eight Blackhawks players each have four points or more.Chicago’s trip to Columbus is in the midst of a stretch of three games in four days. The Blackhawks will return home to face the Lightning on Sunday.Corey Crawford is slated to make his second straight start in goal for the Blackhawks after appearing for the first time since December 2017 in the loss to the Coyotes. He finished with 27 saves in a losing effort. “I think the most important thing is just to get back to playing and winning hockey games,” Crawford said. “It’s another game. Just trying to get back to the routine.”“It’s just a matter of getting more games to shake off the rust” he said.“I think the more you play and the more you get into games Adidas Adam Clendening Jersey , the little details are what make a big difference,” Crawford said. “The more games I play it’s going to feel better. I’ve just got to work hard and make sure I’m in the right spot to give myself the best chance to make saves.”One of Crawford’s best stops against Arizona came on a third-period breakaway.“I thought he was unreal,” Toews said. “Stopped a couple breakaways, though we just kept testing him with those tough ones. It’s almost to be expected. He comes in, so confident and relaxed and just plays hockey.”Defenseman Brandon Davidson is expected to make his regular-season Blackhawks debut in the third defensive pairing with Jan Rutta. The 27-year-old, who made the team on a professional trying during the preseason, has played in the NHL with the Montreal Canadians, Edmonton Oilers and New York Islanders.Davidson will replace Brandon Manning.

Sometimes you’ve got to be lucky to be good.”Pastrnak also had an assist.Boston activated defenseman Charlie McAvoy, who had been sidelined since Oct. 20 due to a concussion. The injury-depleted Bruins are still without center Patrice Bergeron (ribs), and defensemen Zdeno Chara (lower body), Kevan Miller (throat) and Urho Vaakanainen (concussion).“We weren’t quite there yet, but much better than Florida,” Cassidy said. “We had a few passengers.

Not so much.So when the Sharks carry a three-game winning streak into Sunday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center, they will attempt to keep rolling while also finding a way to find success on the road.Article continues below ...The Sharks are 6-8-3 away from home as opposed to the 11-3-2 mark they have compiled at their home rink. But coming off a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars on Thursday, San Jose will make the trek east, hoping to reverse a trend that has bitten the Sharks whenever they have traveled away from the West Coast.“I don’t know why Dallas Stars T-Shirts Authentic , but it does feel like we’ve been out a lot and we’ve done a lot of traveling,” San Jose coach Pete DeBoer said Thursday, according to The Athletic. “It is nice to be at home and I think our home record has been excellent.

They make you pay.“It doesn’t take much of an opening for some of their players to break through and that’s kind of what happened. Credit to our guys, they played to the end and we found a way to get a point. Could have been two, and that’s frustrating.”The Blackhawks continue to struggle with falling behind early, which they have done in 12 of their past 13 games.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Auston Matthews‘ scoring has helped carry the Toronto Maple Leafs early this season.The Leafs’ defense and depth were the difference Saturday against Washington.Fourth-liner Josh Leivo scored the go-ahead goal early in the third period http://www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/...-keith-yandle-jersey , Frederick Andersen made 25 saves and the Maple Leafs beat the Capitals 4-2.Moments after Andersen made several solid saves to preserve the lead, Matthews scored an insurance goal with 1:39 to play, his NHL-leading 10th of the season.Kasperi Kapanen had a goal and an assist and third-line winger Par Lindholm also scored for Toronto, which has won four straight to complete a perfect four-game road trip. Jake Gardiner had two assists.“Obviously, it’s great that our big guys got off to a real good start because I think having them feeling good is so important,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. “I’ve been saying that part of the reason we’re going to have success is because we have real good depth.”Matthews, who added an assist, has scored a goal in all six games this season and has multiple points in each. He also has four assists and joined Sweeny Schriner (1944-45) as the only Maple Leafs to score a goal and have multiple points in the first six games of the season.Toronto tied the game late in the second and controlled play for much of the final 20 minutes.“I think Freddie kept us in the game with some big saves,” Matthews said. “I think the third period we just played in their end for the most part. Had them hemmed in and made some plays.”Evgeny Kuznetsov scored his fourth goal of the season for Washington and added an assist. Chandler Stephenson also scored and Alex Ovechkin had two assists.Washington unleashed a sustained flurry late in the third period but couldn’t get the equalizer.We had a lot of quality opportunities,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden said. “You know 3-4 minutes to go there we make a real good push and (Andersen) makes a number of saves and the puck stays out of the net. They were pushing at the end there and they end up being able to convert on a bit of a bounce that went their way.”Braden Holtby made 24 saves for Washington.It took Washington just 18 seconds to take a 1-0 lead. Kuznetsov carried in 2-on-1 with Stephenson and Andersen made the initial save on Kuznetsov, but Stephenson poked home the rebound for his first goal of the season.Toronto had several chances to tie in the first. Holtby made big saves on Zach Hyman and Kapanen Womens Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey , both alone in front, and the Maple Leafs hit the post twice.The Maple Leafs tied it at 3:30 of the second period when Kapanen deflected Ron Hainsey’s shot from the left point through a crowd and past Holtby.Just 69 seconds later, Kuznetsov fired a tough-angle shot over Andersen’s shoulder from the bottom of the right circle for a power-play goal.Lindholm tied it when he redirected Gardiner’s pass by Holtby with 67 seconds left in the period for his first career goal.“I really liked our first two periods,” Reirden said, “keeping a dangerous hockey team to some limited chances.”NOTES: This was the first of three straight home games for Washington. … Holtby fell to 57-19-9 on Saturday nights. . D Justin Holl, D Martin Marincin and C Tyler Ennis were the Toronto scratches.

The New York Rangers and the Columbus Blue Jackets come into Saturday’s game for the second night of a back-to-back at Nationwide Arena from different directions.The Blue Jackets (9-6-1) headed west back to Columbus after a 2-1 victory on Friday night in Washington over the Capitals, the defending Stanley Cup champions.The Rangers (7-7-2) traveled 180 miles south from Detroit after a heartbreaking 3-2 loss in overtime to the Red Wings that ended their four-game winning streak.Article continues below ...The Blue Jackets didn’t want to talk about facing the Capitals for the first time since losing a six-game series to the eventual champions in the first round of the playoffs last season after leading 2-0 and dropping Game 3 in overtime. But they clearly played inspired hockey with hard checking and stellar goaltending.“I think they know they’re playing against a pretty good team,” Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said. “They have to push and find a way to beat them. I don’t think you need an extra push.”But when push came to shove, goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky was there for the Blue Jackets, finishing with 33 saves. He weathered an onslaught by the Capitals in the final minutes Roberto Luongo Jersey , including the final 43 seconds when Washington had a six-on-four advantage after pulling goalie Braden Holtby.The lone goal that Bobrovsky allowed was on a second-period power play.Bobrovsky has begun to return to his Vezina Trophy form after a slow start this season.“He was outstanding in the first period,” Tortorella said. “We could have been down 4-1. We were so sloppy.”Bobrovsky or backup Joonas Korpisalo could start in goal against the Rangers.“I will enjoy this one,” Bobrovsky said. “It was a tough game. We know Washington has a good team. It wasn’t easy. We defended well. I thought we played a strong game.”Each of the Blue Jackets’ two goals was scored on a power play. Oliver Bjorkstrand, who had been a healthy scratch in the previous game, made the most of his opportunity and struck first in the opening period after taking a between-the-legs pass from teammate Nick Foligno and finding an open net.Bjorkstrand, who led the Blue Jackets with five shots on goal, was only in the lineup because Cam Atkinson was out with an illness. Atkinson might return against the Rangers.“I needed to play some good hockey and it felt good,” Bjorkstrand said. “It was nice to get a goal.“I won some battles and I played hard. The line carried some great chances. I felt good and the battles were good for me. Overall, I was happy with it.”Anthony Duclair happily delivered what proved to be the winning goal at 5:32 of the third period when he chipped the puck past Holtby from the left side of the net.As a result of a second consecutive win, the Blue Jackets moved atop the Metropolitan Division standings with 19 points.The Rangers were on a roll before stumbling in Detroit, giving up the winning goal with 5.1 seconds left in overtime after squandering a 2-0 lead.“We cheated the game with a 2-0 lead www.floridapanthersteamshops.com/authent...cent-trocheck-jersey , and you see the result,” Rangers coach David Quinn said, according to the team’s website. “I would have thought we would have learned that lesson now, but we obviously haven’t. You can’t stop playing in this league.”New York’s two goals came on power plays in the second period.“This one hurts because we had complete control of this game for so long,” Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist said. “We know we should have come out of this one with two points, and now we have to be happy just to get one.”Chris Kreider leads the Rangers with seven goals this season and Mika Zibanejad has a team-best eight assists and 14 points.“We played with confidence for two periods and then we let them right back into the game,” Rangers defenseman Marc Staal said. “We stopped playing with confidence and started throwing the puck away, and you can’t do that in the other team’s rink. We needed to stay aggressive.”

WASHINGTON (AP) Patrik Laine knows where he stands.The Winnipeg Jets winger might not keep track of each time Alex Ovechkin or Evgeni Malkin scores Edmonton Oilers T-Shirts Authentic , but he knows how many goals they have.”I just sometimes look at the scoreboard and the score sheets,” Laine said. ”I always pretty much know where’s everyone at.”Laine and Ovechkin went into their showdown Monday night tied at 40 goals. Ovechkin scored twice and Laine once to keep the race for the Rocket Richard Trophy and pursuit of 50 goals red hot in the NHL’s stretch run.At 19 years old, Laine is a real threat to win his first goal-scoring title, while Ovechkin at 32 is seeking his eighth 50-goal season and seventh Rocket Richard.”Most great goal-scorers, when they’re in their early 20s is when they’re putting up all their big numbers,” Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. ”It’s very, very unique and unusual for a player of Alex’s vintage to be staring 50 goals in the face.”The goals race comes down to Ovechkin and Malkin – the Nos. 1 and 2 picks from 2004 – and Laine, the second selection in 2016 who has shown he deserves to be in the conversation for the best goal-scorer in hockey today.”He’s got a gift for scoring goals,” Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot said. ”It’s even more profound that you look for him in the offensive zone because if he gets the puck – it’s crazy to say – it’s like a 60, 70 percent chance he’s going to put it in the back of the net. I’ve never played with anyone like that – that dangerous, that lethal.”Winnipeg teammates aren’t shy to say Laine’s abilities are ”Ovechkin-like” because Laine is scoring as a teenager the way only the Washington Capitals superstar, Steven Stamkos, Auston Matthews and Ilya Kovalchuk have over the past two decades. Ovechkin is no doubt the greatest goal-scorer of this generation and on Monday became the fourth-fastest player in league history to 600.Capitals coach Barry Trotz thinks 50 is a more important milestone for his Russian winger given his recent trajectory.”The 600 will be something he’ll have forever, but I think he’ll put a lot of pride if he can get 50 this year,” Trotz said. ”I think the way he looks at it, it’s so hard to do and he had a down year (last season). He wants to show that he can still do it.”Ovechkin soaked up 600 quickly and is now eight away from 50 with 13 games to go.”It would be pretty amazing and pretty unbelievable,” Ovechkin said. ”I still have time, and (with) a little bit of luck, a little bit of help from upstairs, I don’t know, we’ll see.”Like Ovechkin Edmonton Oilers Hoodies Authentic , Laine said scoring down the stretch is important for team goals and he has certainly helped the Jets. Laine has scored 16 goals in his past 12 gamesThe most prolific young Finn since Teemu Selanne said winning the Rocket Richard Trophy has always been a dream, and now 50 is in reach as he clicks with linemates Nikolai Ehlers and Paul Stastny.”You never know what’s going to happen,” Laine said. ”Ten games ago, I was at 25 and nobody was talking about even 40. There’s a lot of things that could happen. If we’re playing like this with Niky and Paul, why not?”Ovechkin already has nine more goals than he put up all last season. Only Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Marcel Dionne have scored 40 goals in a season more times than Ovechkin.”I don’t think people understand how hard that is to do,” Toronto Maple Leafs center Nazem Kadri said. ”He makes it seem so effortless. He’s got a very special shot.”Jets center Andrew Copp wondered if Laine’s shot is even more special than Ovechkin’s. Copp hasn’t seen Laine score from the center red line yet but joked, ”I’m sure that day will come.””Ovi’s got a big, winding up wrister and it comes off just kind of so crazy whereas Patty, it’s almost like he’s throwing darts at the net,” Chiarot said. ”It’s just a little flick of the wrist and it’s kind of where he wants it. … I think it’s the most dangerous shot in the league.”Jets coach Paul Maurice senses the confidence oozing from Laine just from watching him at practice. He can see an entirely different player from a month ago.”If you’re getting close to 50, you’re feeling good about your game,” Maurice said. ”Any of these guys, confidence is a critical piece. That puck is off Patty’s stick where he wants it right now every time. So he’s feeling it, he’s feeling good.”Malkin, who has 39 goals, right now might be the most dangerous player in the league. The Pittsburgh Penguins center is right there with Ovechkin, New Jersey Devils winger Taylor Hall, Stamkos and Tampa Bay Lightning teammate Nikita Kucherov and Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon in a crowded MVP race.Playing on the same team as Sidney Crosby could leave Malkin underappreciated at times, but he’s playing some of the best hockey of his career.”I have confidence right now,” Malkin said recently. ”It’s like every shot goes in. It’s funny sometimes. I’m trying to do my best.”— WASHINGTON (AP) The Latest on Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals (all times local):11:03 p.m.The Washington Capitals have beaten the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 and taken a 2-1 lead in the Stanley Cup Final.Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored second-period goals and Devante Smith-Pelly added another late in the third period to put the Golden Knights in a hole.

He was not pulled from the game to go through concussion protocol.Orpik went to the bench following the check in the corner but did not go down the tunnel for evaluation.

DALLAS (AP) — Phillip Danault is scoring goals in bunches for Montreal. Jeff Petry didn’t waste much time finishing a rally in overtime against Dallas.Petry scored 14 seconds into the extra period after Danault had both Montreal goals in regulation and the Canadiens rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Stars on Monday night.Danault’s two goals Womens Tomas Hertl Jersey , including the tying tally early in the third period, came nine days after his first career hat trick in a 4-3 overtime win at Vegas, giving him five of his seven goals this season in that span.“I think I’m taking more of the middle,” Danault said. “Taking more speed and confidence. Sometimes when you score goals it helps you with your confidence. Which it did. And my wingers are playing well with a lot of speed.”Antti Niemi stopped 45 shots against his former team in his third straight start and second win since Carey Price was sidelined with a lower-body injury. The Canadiens finished 4-2 on a season-long six-game road trip.After Max Domi won the opening faceoff of 3-on-3 overtime, Paul Byron skated up the left side and slipped the puck across the ice to Petry , who easily beat Ben Bishop for his eighth goal. Domi collected his team-leading 23rd assist.“It was a good faceoff win by Domes,” Petry said. “Anytime you can get possession in overtime is big. He gave me an outlet there and moved it across to Byron. Saw him going down the wing Adidas Jaroslav Halak Jersey , and my opportunity to jump and make it a 2-on-1.”Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin were on the ice for Montreal’s winning goal in their first loss since the high-priced forwards were harshly criticized by their front office. Benn scored his team-leading 16th goal on an assist from Seguin for a 2-1 lead in the second period.Danault’s tying goal came when he collected an errant shot behind the net and stuffed the puck between Bishop’s pad and the post on a wraparound. His first-period goal for a 1-0 lead came on a loose puck just outside the crease as he was falling to the ice.Benn’s goal came on a power play after his brother, Jordie Benn, was penalized for hooking.The Stars have split two games since expletive-laden rants to reporters against Benn and Seguin by club CEO Jim Lites. The critique that the two players on expensive long-term contracts were underperforming for a team falling short of expectations drew a rebuke from the NHL players’ union.While Seguin and Benn are still two of the top three scorers on their team, they’re not on a pace to be among the top 25 in the NHL, which they’ve been in five previous seasons together. Seguin’s assist on Benn’s goal was his team-leading 23rd.“We had our two best practices consecutively. And we’ve played well these last two games here,” Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. “We just have to keep doing it every day. That’s been the biggest challenge with our group, is being good every day.”Radek Faksa pulled Dallas even at 1-1 in the second period when he put a wrist shot over Niemi’s glove on a pass from Valeri Nichushkin Adidas Steven Kampfer Jersey , who has six assists but is still without a goal in 31 games. Bishop had 35 saves for Dallas.NOTES: It was the 20th consecutive time the Stars have played at home on New Year’s Eve. They are 12-6-2 in those games. It was Montreal’s second New Year’s Eve trip to Dallas. The previous visit was a 1-1 tie in 2003. … Stars D Connor Carrick played for the first time since Oct. 28. He’s been out with a foot injury. … Canadiens C Andrew Shaw didn’t return after the first period because of an upper-body injury.UP NEXTCanadiens: Opener of three-game homestand Thursday against Vancouver.Stars: New Jersey at home Wednesday. DALLAS (AP) — Tyler Seguin didn’t like what he saw on the scoreboard at the second intermission, and he did his best to change that.Seguin scored two goals in the final eight minutes, lifting the Dallas Stars over the Minnesota Wild 3-1 on Friday night.“I thought after 40 minutes we deserved to win that game,” Seguin said.The game was still tied at 1 when Mattias Janmark took the puck along the boards in the neutral zone and passed across the blue line to Seguin. His slap shot from the top of the right faceoff circle went under Minnesota goalie Devan Dubnyk and trickled into the net with 7:42 left.“I saw the puck coming,” Dubnyk said. “I went straight down. I didn’t pull up. I didn’t open up. It’s a save you need to make. Obviously, you want to come up with that save in a 1-1 game.”Seguin added an empty-net goal, his team-high 20th of the season Adidas Zach Bogosian Jersey , with 24 seconds to play. The Stars won their third in a row and stopped the Wild’s three-game winning streak to pass Minnesota for third place in the Central Division.“That was a playoff game tonight,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery said. “It was a big focal point going into the third: ‘Let’s win the net-front battle and be in third place.’ Our will was great.”Ben Bishop followed a shutout win on Wednesday with a 21-save effort against the Wild. He protected the lead by stopping a backhand attempt by Marcus Foligno with 6:25 remaining.Dubnyk finished with 29 saves.Wild coach Bruce Boudreau noted the narrow margin of victory.“One mistake here,” Boudreau said. “Zach (Parise) misses a net where Bishop falls and is out of the net and they come down and score, and that’s the difference in the game.”Bishop is part of a defense that has allowed only seven goals in the past five games. The Stars’ 129 goals allowed are second in the league behind the Islanders.“That’s what we are,” Montgomery said. “If you have the defense, you’re always going to be in every game.”Dallas’ Andrew Cogliano and Minnesota’s Brad Hunt scored in the second period, which ended 1-all.Cogliano tipped in Roman Polak’s shot from the right point for a 1-0 lead at 3:12 of the second.“It felt good just to contribute Joakim Nordstrom Jersey Womens ,” Cogliano said. “At this point, it doesn’t matter who scores, it’s all about the win.”That goal ended a drought of 74 minutes, 33 seconds without a score by either team in Dallas’ two most recent games. When Cogliano went off with a high-sticking double minor two minutes later, those were the first penalties by either team in 75:06 of ice time in the same games.Hunt tied the game at 8:48 of the second during the power play for Cogliano’s second penalty.NOTES: Cogliano’s fourth goal of the season was his first for the Stars in five games since being acquired from Anaheim in a trade on Jan. 14. … The Wild were playing for the first time in nine days. … Dallas C Jason Dickinson left Wednesday’s game with a lower-body injury and is expected to miss both games this weekend. … Minnesota LW Pontus Aberg (lower-body injury) left the game in the second period. … Wild C Matt Hendricks played in his 600th NHL game. … Entering the game, Minnesota led the Stars by one point in the standings, with the difference the Wild’s point for an overtime loss vs. Dallas.

WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump said Friday he expects to welcome the hometown Washington Capitals hockey team to the White House for winning the Stanley Cup. But he adds: ”If they don’t want to be here http://www.sabresshoponline.com/authentic-jack-eichel-jersey , I don’t want them.”Trump congratulated the Capitals on his Twitter feed after the team won the NHL title with a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final. He singled out series MVP Alex Ovechkin as ”a true Superstar” and said the city is ”popping” after the Capitals won the team’s first Stanley Cup championship.The president spoke to reporters on the South Lawn days after he canceled a visit by the Philadelphia Eagles to commemorate their Super Bowl victory after most of the players decided to skip the ceremony.Before departing for an international summit in Canada, Trump said he wouldn’t invite either the Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers, the two teams in the NBA Finals, but added, ”we have other teams that are coming.”Trump pointed out that he’s had several championship teams at the White House, including the NFL’s New England Patriots and the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins.”I think we’ll have the Caps. I mean, we’ll see,” Trump said. ”You know, my attitude: If they want to be here Youth Jake McCabe Jersey , it’s the greatest place on Earth, I’m here. If they don’t want to be here, I don’t want them.”Trump tweeted after the Capitals’ victory: ”Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on their GREAT play and winning the Stanley Cup Championship. Alex Ovechkin, the team captain, was spectacular – a true Superstar! D.C. is popping, in many ways. What a time!” DALLAS (AP) — John Tavares and the Toronto Maple Leafs are just getting used to each other.So far, so good.Tavares and Auston Matthews each had two goals, and the high-scoring Maple Leafs beat the Dallas Stars 7-4 on Tuesday night.Toronto defenseman Morgan Rielly had a career-high four assists after he scored the winning goal in Sunday night’s 7-6 overtime win at Chicago. Mitchell Marner had a goal and three assists as the Maple Leafs improved to 2-0 on a four-game trip.Led by Matthews and Tavares, Toronto has won three of its first four games Jason Pominville Jersey Kids , averaging five goals per contest. Matthews has seven goals and three assists already. Tavares, who signed a blockbuster deal with his hometown Maple Leafs this summer, has scored five of his six goals in the past two games.“When it’s always going in, it’s always a really good feeling,” Matthews said. “You want to continue to generate chances because it’s going to get harder and harder as the season goes along.”Tyler Seguin had a goal and three assists for Dallas, and Alexander Radulov finished with a goal and two assists.Ben Bishop, who had stopped 62 of 63 shots to help the Stars to a 2-0 start, made 23 saves.Frederik Andersen had 30 stops for the Maple Leafs.The Leafs grabbed control by scoring three times in the last 8:01 of the second period for a 5-2 lead. Matthews and Tavares scored on the power play, and Ron Hainsey put in a shot from the blue line at even strength for his first goal this season.“What I like about the power play is we’re not trying to make any highlight-reel plays http://www.sabresshoponline.com/authentic-johan-larsson-jersey ,” Tavares said. “I think we’re just kind of sticking with our structure and what we believe is going to work for us.”Toronto was 2 for 3 on the power play.“We have to do a better job killing penalties than we did tonight,” Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. “We made it too easy. They make it hard on you. Those were some really nice goals they scored.”Dallas’ top line continued to provide most of the Stars’ scoring. Seguin posted his second straight four-point game. Radulov scored for the third straight game, and Jamie Benn scored his third power-play goal.The Stars had 17 giveaways by 12 different players.“Their speed and their creativity forced those mistakes,” Montgomery said. “Our execution wasn’t where it needed to be against a real good hockey club.”Marner scored unassisted at 9:40 of the first period, putting the Stars behind for the first time this season.Dallas tied it at 17:23.

COLUMBUS Adidas Evgeny Svechnikov Jersey , Ohio — The Columbus Blue Jackets left Toronto on Monday night disappointed with the outcome of what they felt was a winnable road game.The Blue Jackets led 2-0 after one period, but several defensive mistakes cost them, and the Maple Leafs rallied for a 4-2 victory that ended Columbus’ three-game winning streak and a seven-game point streak.Four days later, the Blue Jackets (12-7-2) will have an opportunity to right their wrongs when the two teams face off in a rematch on Friday night at Nationwide Arena.Article continues below ...Toronto comes in one point behind first-place Tampa Bay in the Atlantic Division and the Blue Jackets are tied atop the Metropolitan Division with the New York Rangers.Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella was clearly perturbed with the manner in which his team lost in Toronto. A defensive mistake on a faceoff left Toronto’s Morgan Rielly open on the left point and he buried the winning goal.“We played well enough to win,” Tortorella said, “and not to get a point out of it off just a simple coverage off a faceoff, it just (ticks) you off.“It’s pee-wee coverage and we didn’t handle it. It’s frustrating.”The Maple Leafs (15-7-0) played a game between the two against the Blue Jackets, falling 5-2 on Wednesday night to the Carolina Hurricanes. Toronto had won four straight and nine of its last 10 on the road.John Tavares scored one of Toronto’s two goals and Frederik Andersen (12-6-0), whose 12 wins leads the NHL, made 40 saves but lost for the first time in his last seven starts.Tavares leads the Maple Leafs with 14 goals in his first season with the team and Mitch Marner has team bests of 22 assists and 28 points.As the Maple Leafs did against the Blue Jackets, they fell behind the Hurricanes in the first period, but this time they weren’t able to catch up.“Bottom line is we didn’t get what we wanted here,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock told reporters “Ideally Adidas Jonathan Bernier Jersey , it’s a good lesson for all of us. If we’re not prepared, we have no chance at success, and we’ll move on.”The Blue Jackets’ recent success has revolved around its top line, led by winger Cam Atkinson, and improved play from goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky (7-7-0).Atkinson contributed a goal and an assist in the loss to the Maple Leafs, extending his goal and point streaks to a career-best five games with the first score of the game.In the past five games, Atkinson has racked up seven goals three assists for 10 points. Named the NHL’s First Star of the Week, Atkinson is now tied with Artemi Panarin for the team points lead with 22.“I’m putting myself in good positions,” Atkinson told The Columbus Dispatch. “I think that’s plain and simple. My linemates are making good passes and I’m just burying them.”Linemate Pierre-Luc Dubois has 10 goals and nine assists for 19 points, and Panarin has four assists in the past two games.“We’re just playing confident,” Atkinson said. “We know where each other is going to be on the ice, in the offensive zone especially, and we’re working off each other. We’re close to each other Adidas Paul Thompson Jersey , supporting each other, and I think that makes a really big difference for us.” After missing five games with a knee injury, Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne came back with quite the bang Thursday night in Tampa Bay.Rinne stoned the Lightning with 42 saves in Nashville’s 4-1 win, more or less stealing two points on an evening when the Predators were outshot 43-24 and outhit 29-16. Needless to say, rust wasn’t a part of his game after a 13-day layoff.“He was unbelievable,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “He looked really sharp to me … he was brilliant, and he needed to be.”Article continues below ...Rinne (4-1-0, 1.91 goals-against average, .940 save percentage) figures to be back in net Saturday night for the Predators’ last home game before their yearly CMA road trip as they take on the Boston Bruins in Bridgestone Arena.Nashville (10-3-0) owns the NHL’s best record and is off to the fastest start through 13 games in franchise history. It is again proving its ability to win any type of game, as shown by its league-leading plus-16 goal differential, and is flashing the depth that helped it finish with the league’s best record last season.The Predators won Thursday night with first-line right winger Viktor Arvidsson (lower-body injury) on the shelf. No matter. Rinne came up big, Kyle Turris came up with a ridiculous goal off an off-balance deflection and center Ryan Johansen set up two goals with passes straight out of a video game.Johansen’s blind, backhand pass from the left half-wall to Roman Josi for a goal with less than seven seconds left in the first period belongs on any highlight video.“If you look at the replay Adidas Troy Brouwer Jersey , he takes a little peek and makes that spin-o-rama pass,” Rinne said of Johansen. “It was pretty unreal, a beautiful goal. I wasn’t surprised, but it was pretty cool to see in a game.”While some might carp that Johansen doesn’t shoot enough, and with some justification, he still leads the team in scoring with two goals and 13 assists. His linemates, Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg, have accounted for 18 goals, so it’s not like Johansen has needed to shoot.Should Arvidsson return from his injury, it will create a big-time matchup of first lines. Boston has one of the best around in David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, and they were on fire Tuesday night in a 3-2 win at Carolina.Marchand scored the tying and winning goals, and Pastrnak scored the first goal. Bergeron had helpers on all three goals.In the Bruins’ 7-3-2 start Adidas Michael Hutchinson Jersey , the line has combined for 22 goals, including a league-leading 11 by Pastrnak, and an absurd 50 points.Marchand’s goals broke a six-game stretch without a goal.“It’s kind of how he is,” Bergeron said. “He makes something happen out of nothing so we just try to send him and after that, he finds a way.”Jaroslav Halak (4-0-2, 1.51, .947) has bounced back from a couple of off-years with the New York Islanders to help Boston get off to a fast start. He saved 42 shots against the Hurricanes, and has vastly overplayed incumbent Tuukka Rask (3-3-0, 3.15, .902).The teams split two regular-season games last year, both winning on home ice.

PITTSBURGH (AP) Mike Sullivan knows his team is ”wired” for offense Jake Guentzel Jersey Kids , as tends to happen when you have Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and – increasingly – Jake Guentzel on your roster.Yet the Pittsburgh Penguins have proven during their two-year run atop the NHL they know what they’re doing at the other end of the ice, too, playing with a discipline that’s more grit than glamour.Their hopes for a historic three-peat remain alive because of it.Guentzel scored twice and the Penguins held Washington star Alex Ovechkin without a shot on goal for just the third time in 107 career playoff games to grind out a 3-1 victory in Game 4 on Thursday night to even their typically taut Eastern Conference semifinal.Pittsburgh held Washington to three shots total in the third period.”It’s like we played Game 7 tonight,” said Malkin, who scored from his belly late in the second period to put Pittsburgh in front to stay. ”Unbelievable.”Well. Not exactly.This is what tends to happen when the two longtime rivals meet in the postseason. Washington edges ahead and the Penguins respond immediately, one of the main reasons Pittsburgh is 9-1 all-time against the Capitals in the playoffs.Plenty of work remains to be done for Washington to shrug off the weight of its ignominious history and for the Penguins to push their bid for a three-peat to the next round. Yet Pittsburgh laid down the blueprint over three periods that were decidedly tamer than the Game 3 chaos caused in large part by Washington forward Tom Wilson’s illegal high hit that left rookie Zach Aston-Reese with a broken jaw and led the league to suspend Wilson for three games.While Sullivan downplayed the impact of Wilson’s absence, the pushing and shoving was largely kept to a minimum save for a scrap between Pittsburgh’s Kris Letang and Washington’s T.J. Oshie as Guentzel skated down the ice to flip in an empty-net goal with 58 seconds to go.For the Penguins, the stakes – as they so often have during Sullivan’s tenure – far outweighed any search for retribution.”We understood it’s a huge game for us,” Malkin said.Instead the teams head to Washington for Game 5 on Saturday night all tied up www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authenti...ustin-schultz-jersey , the ninth time in 11 postseason meetings the series will go at least six games. Same as it ever was.Oshie scored Washington’s lone goal – a shot from the slot on the power play 12:55 into the second that knotted the score at 1 – and Braden Holtby finished with 21 saves but the Capitals couldn’t sneak anything else by Murray, who stopped 20 shots just two days after putting together an admittedly ”shaky” performance in Game 3.The guys in front of Murray made his job relatively easy. The Penguins blocked 13 shots and rarely let Washington put together any sustained pressure.Devante Smith-Pelly replaced Wilson on the top line with Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov, but Pittsburgh kept the clamps on. Ovechkin failed to put a single puck on net, though Washington coach Barry Trotz downplayed Ovechkin’s ineffectiveness.”Trust me, Ovie will get his shots,” Trotz said.He’s going to have to if he wants to keep pace with Guentzel. A year after scoring a playoff-high 13 goals while helping the Penguins to a second consecutive Cup, the slender 23-year-old is once again thriving in May.Guentzel gave the Penguins the lead 9:21 into the second period when he stood on the doorstep and banged home a rebound of Dominik Simon’s shot for his ninth of the playoffs and his 20th point of the postseason. Wayne Gretzky and Mark Messier in 1988 are the last two players to reach 20 points in 10 or fewer postseason games.”I just kind of feel like the (pucks) are going in right now,” Guentzel said.Guentzel has a league-leading 10 playoff goals, joining Mario Lemieux as the only NHL players to reach double digits in their first two career postseasons.The 23-year-old, however Kris Letang Jersey , is still learning. He committed a slashing penalty after putting the Penguins in front, and Oshie’s shot from the slot 12:55 into the second tied it.Malkin went to his belly to put Pittsburgh back in front with 2:33 to go in the second. The Russian star flung himself at the puck during a scrum in the crease, the puck just flitting over the goal line following a scramble. There was no initial goal call on the play, reminiscent of a sequence in Game 2 in which the red goal light remained unlit after Pittsburgh’s Patric Hornqvist jabbed at it from in front.Replays in Game 2 proved inconclusive and the Capitals held on. This time, the review was kinder to the Penguins. Video clearly showed the puck inching across the line, and it stood after the Capitals challenged claiming goalie interference.”It’s a good goal, we’re happy,” Malkin said. ”Sometimes it’s a bad call against us. Sometimes it’s a good call. But we’re looking at the next game. We understand it’s not over.”NOTES: Crosby also failed to get a shot on goal but had two assists. … Pittsburgh F Carl Hagelin played 16:11 while wearing a full face shield in his return from an upper-body injury that forced him to miss the first three games of the series. … The Capitals have scored a playoff goal in nine of 10 playoff games. … The loss was Washington’s first on the road in the playoffs (4-1). … The Capitals were 1 for 3 on the power play. The Penguins were 2 for 4.— GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Clayton Keller had a superb start and finish to his rookie season with the Arizona Coyotes, becoming a finalist for the Calder Trophy. In between Mario Lemieux Jersey , he went through a long scoring drought.Keller’s goal for his sophomore season: More consistency.Already one of the NHL’s top young players, Keller is hoping to take the next step in his career by mirroring the preparation of players like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Patrick Kane — with an assist from his coach, Rick Tocchet.“You try to watch guys like that and see how they create success,” Keller said. “Toc’s a good friend of Crosby’s and he’s always bringing drills that Crosby does, little things before practice to help us. It’s good to have that relationship with Toc to be able to ask questions about this player or that player.”Arizona used the seventh overall pick of the 2016 NHL draft to select Keller out of Boston University. The 2016 draft was headlined by Auston Matthews, who immediately became one of the NHL’s biggest stars with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and high-scoring Winnipeg Jets forward Patrik Laine.Keller may have been a steal at No. 7, if that’s even possible.Though small at 5-foor-10, 170 pounds Matt Murray Jersey , Keller is quick, shifty and sees the ice well. He got his rookie season off to a great start, scoring in his first NHL game and piling up 11 goals in Arizona’s first 16 games. Keller was the Coyotes leader in goals and points at the end of 2017.Once the calendar flipped, Keller’s production dropped off. He had three goals and 12 points through the first two months of 2018, appearing to hit the rookie wall.But Keller found his form again late in the season, finishing with 23 goals and 38 assists to break Arizona’s rookie records.“Any NHL player — the guy is turning 20 years old — consistency is key,” Tocchet said. “I’m not saying he’s inconsistent, but the great ones have a bad night and usually the next night they bounce back. That’s one of the things he’s probably going to learn.”Tocchet has tried to help Keller gain consistency by sharing some of the things he learned from Mario Lemieux and Crosby.Tocchet won a Stanley Cup while playing with Lemieux and was on the bench when Crosby led the Penguins to two titles. Both were skilled players, but also had the work ethic to become the best in their sport.“I was very lucky to be around some of the best players in the world,” Tocchet said. “I played with Mario Lemieux www.officialpenguinsproshop.com/authenti...s-olli-maatta-jersey , coached Sidney Crosby and there’s a reason why they’re the best. They work hard. They do what it takes.”Keller doesn’t lack the work ethic. He usually shows up early for practice to work on his game and is what Tocchet calls a “hockey nerd” who is always watching the game, tons of film, asking questions.Keller expects to get more attention from opponents this season and to get banged around a little more as teams try to slow him down. He spent the summer adding strength and muscle while implementing some of the drills culled from Crosby.“I feel really good. I feel a lot stronger,” Keller said. “It should help me through this full 82 and be ready for every game.”

TAMPA Youth Brandon Carlo Jersey , Fla. (AP) The highest-scoring team in the NHL is playing a stingy brand of defense in the playoffs.Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Tampa Bay Lightning know ultimately that will be the key to the chances for a deep run for the third time in four years.The top seed in the Eastern Conference won its opening round series 4-1 over the New Jersey Devils, with Vasilevskiy stopping 53 of 55 shots over the last two games.”We did a good job. They’re a good team, but we were better a little bit,” the 23-year-old goaltender said after Saturday’s 3-1 clinching victory.”The guys played well,” Vasilevskiy said. ”When your team is playing well, I’m feeling much better, more confidence. … ”Now it’s in the past and we have to move on and think about the second round.”Nikita Kucherov scored goals in four of the five games, including three game-winners.With five goals and five assists, he set a franchise record for points in a playoff series and also tied Vincent Lecavalier for second place on the Tampa Bay’s postseason scoring list with 52 points in 50 games.But as well as the league’s third-leading scorer and the rest of the offense performed over the course of the series, the defense was just as good after struggling at times over the last two months of the season.The Devils scored seven goals in the four games they lost. Before yielding one goal in each of the final two games Karl Alzner Jersey Womens , Vasilevskiy had never allowed one or fewer goals in a playoff start.”He’s been unbelievable. He’s so young, but it seems like he’s been in the league for 20 years,” Kucherov said. ”When he makes the saves, it gives energy to our group and the bench, everyone is fired up.”In his first season as a No. 1 goalie, the finalist for the Vezina Trophy tied for first in the NHL in victories (44) and shutouts (eight) and finished with a 2.62 goals-against average and .920 save percentage.Those numbers might have been even better if the Lightning had played better defense in front of him over the last half of the season.”He was on it from Game 1,” coach Jon Cooper said of the young goaltender’s performance against the Devils.”He just came up huge in every big situation. … The timely saves were phenomenal for us,” Cooper added. ”He just played with confidence.”And, that gives the Lightning reason to feel good heading into the Eastern Conference semifinals against the winner of the first-round matchup between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs.”We don’t care who’s going to be there. There’s no easy teams in the playoffs,” Kucherov said. ”We have to make sure we play the same way and we play our way.”Cooper appreciates being able to close out the Devils early Joel Armia Jersey Womens , avoiding a return trip to Newark, New Jersey, for Game 6.”Ultimately, you just don’t want to get on the plane, again. It’s not that there’s still series left, but it’s the wear and tear on the body and mind,” Cooper said. ”I’m not one of those, let the series go seven and just keep playing. We’ll take the rest, take a step back and prepare.”— Mike Tirico’s advice to young announcers has been to take chances and get out of their comfort zone. He will be practicing what he preaches in a couple of weeks.The NBC Sports Group announced Thursday that Tirico will call his first NHL game on Feb. 20 when Detroit hosts Chicago during “Wednesday Night Hockey” on NBCSN. Tirico has been a part of the network’s NHL coverage during the past year. He hosted two games of last year’s Stanley Cup Final as well as this year’s NHL Winter Classic at Notre Dame and the All-Star Game in San Jose.“It is a great adrenaline rush to be able to do something different,” Tirico said. “I’ve been a hockey fan for years growing up in New York and now living in Ann Arbor (Michigan). The league is constantly changing and getting better.”A big reason Tirico left ESPN for NBC in July 2016 was to be a part of events he hadn’t been able to do in the past Torey Krug Jersey , such as the NHL and the Olympics. When ESPN had the NHL, Tirico was one of the network’s main voices on college basketball and the NBA.Tirico said he has received some pointers from fellow announcers Mike “Doc” Emrick and Kenny Albert as well as Red Wings voices Ken Kal and Ken Daniels.“The thing I have come to appreciate over the years is how well all the announcers are throughout the league,” Tirico said. “I’m not going to go in and do the job that Mike or Kenny does. Doc is so unique that anyone who tries to copy his style is a fool.”Tirico will be paired with analyst Eddie Olczyk, who has worked with Tirico during the Triple Crown and Breeders Cup. Brian Boucher will be between the benches. Emrick, who gets to enjoy a night off during a long season, said in a statement that he is looking forward to hearing Tirico’s call.“There is not much pre-game advice you can give a person as talented as Mike,” Emrick added. “His passion for sports and his delivery of the action on the playing field are world-class.”Tirico is part of a growing roster of black and female voices around the NHL’s top broadcasting packages. Kendall Coyne Schofield was recently hired as an analyst by NBC, where she joined former Team USA teammate AJ Mleczko. Former players Anson Carter (NBC) and Kevin Weekes (NHL Network) are analysts.In Canada, David Amber and former Team Canada standout Cassie Campbell-Pascall are on CBC’s “Hockey Night in Canada.”

After missing five games with a knee injury Youth Leonard Fournette Jersey , Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne came back with quite the bang Thursday night in Tampa Bay.Rinne stoned the Lightning with 42 saves in Nashville’s 4-1 win, more or less stealing two points on an evening when the Predators were outshot 43-24 and outhit 29-16. Needless to say, rust wasn’t a part of his game after a 13-day layoff.“He was unbelievable,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “He looked really sharp to me … he was brilliant, and he needed to be.”Article continues below ...Rinne (4-1-0, 1.91 goals-against average, .940 save percentage) figures to be back in net Saturday night for the Predators’ last home game before their yearly CMA road trip as they take on the Boston Bruins in Bridgestone Arena.Nashville (10-3-0) owns the NHL’s best record and is off to the fastest start through 13 games in franchise history. It is again proving its ability to win any type of game, as shown by its league-leading plus-16 goal differential, and is flashing the depth that helped it finish with the league’s best record last season.The Predators won Thursday night with first-line right winger Viktor Arvidsson (lower-body injury) on the shelf. No matter. Rinne came up big, Kyle Turris came up with a ridiculous goal off an off-balance deflection and center Ryan Johansen set up two goals with passes straight out of a video game.Johansen’s blind, backhand pass from the left half-wall to Roman Josi for a goal with less than seven seconds left in the first period belongs on any highlight video.“If you look at the replay, he takes a little peek and makes that spin-o-rama pass,” Rinne said of Johansen. “It was pretty unreal, a beautiful goal. I wasn’t surprised, but it was pretty cool to see in a game.”While some might carp that Johansen doesn’t shoot enough, and with some justification, he still leads the team in scoring with two goals and 13 assists. His linemates Brandin Cooks Jersey Elite , Arvidsson and Filip Forsberg, have accounted for 18 goals, so it’s not like Johansen has needed to shoot.Should Arvidsson return from his injury, it will create a big-time matchup of first lines. Boston has one of the best around in David Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand, and they were on fire Tuesday night in a 3-2 win at Carolina.Marchand scored the tying and winning goals, and Pastrnak scored the first goal. Bergeron had helpers on all three goals.In the Bruins’ 7-3-2 start, the line has combined for 22 goals, including a league-leading 11 by Pastrnak, and an absurd 50 points.Marchand’s goals broke a six-game stretch without a goal.“It’s kind of how he is,” Bergeron said. “He makes something happen out of nothing so we just try to send him and after that, he finds a way.”Jaroslav Halak (4-0-2, 1.51, .947) has bounced back from a couple of off-years with the New York Islanders to help Boston get off to a fast start. He saved 42 shots against the Hurricanes, and has vastly overplayed incumbent Tuukka Rask (3-3-0, 3.15, .902).The teams split two regular-season games last year Authentic Robert Woods Jersey , both winning on home ice. NEW YORK — These are enjoyable times for the Columbus Blue Jackets, who are starting to get on a roll and getting outstanding goaltending from Sergei Bobrovsky.The Blue Jackets attempt to get their season-high fifth straight victory and Bobrovsky likely will be in nets Thursday night when they visit the New York Rangers.Columbus is trying to get its fourth winning streak of at least five games since the start of the 2016-17 season. The Blue Jackets also are 6-2-1 in their last nine games since a 9-6 home loss to the Calgary Flames on Dec. 4.Article continues below ...Bobrovsky is 4-0-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .970 save percentage during Columbus’ winning streak. He is facing an average of 33.5 shots per game and his performances helped the Blue Jackets win three straight one-goal games before Sunday’s 3-0 win at New Jersey when Bobrovsky made 39 saves, his second-highest total of the season.His recent performances helped him get named as the NHL’s first star Monday. Since allowing eight goals to Calgary, Bobrovsky is 6-1 with a 1.77 GAA and .942 save percentage.“There are ups and downs,” Bobrovsky said. “It’s a long season. You never know what’s going to happen, so you just play by the moment and do your things.”While Bobrovsky was stopping 19 shots in the third period, his teammates helped by scoring twice in the opening 5:31 and adding a second-period tally. Cam Atkinson scored the first goal, giving him 17 goals in the last 20 games while Artemi Panarin scored an unassisted tally, marking the third time he scored in consecutive games this season.“It’s always good to get the first one, especially in the away barn,” Atkinson said. “We knew we’d see their best and to feel good right away, it’s good for us. We can enjoy this and get a little bit of a rest here and be ready for the Rangers.”Besides their overall streak, the Blue Jackets will be attempting to get a fourth straight road win and improve on their 7-4-1 record against Metropolitan Division opponents.One of New York’s wins during a 10-3-1 surge from Oct. 23-Nov. 21 was a 5-4 shootout win in Columbus on Nov. 10 when Jimmy Vesey scored the game-tying goal in the final minute of regulation and scored the winner in the fifth round of the shootout against Joonas Korpisalo.The last game of New York’s hot streak was a 5-0 home win over the New York Islanders on Nov. 21. Two days later, they were handed a 4-0 loss in Philadelphia that started their 3-6-4 slide.During the skid, the Rangers have lost four one-goal games and are 2-2-4 at home. They also have been outshot on nine occasions and allowed at least 40 shots on goal four times.In their last game, the Rangers did not allow 40 shots or get outshot but wound up with a 3-2 shootout loss at home to Philadelphia on Sunday. Chris Kreider scored in the first period, Boo Nieves tallied in the second but Mats Zuccarello Robert Woods Jersey Elite , Mika Zibanejad, Pavel Buchnevich, and Kevin Hays were unable to score in the shootout against Michal Neuvirth.“I took a look this morning at the standings, and obviously the separation is getting bigger,” New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist said. “We have to start winning here if you want to be part of that race. Take this break and regroup and realize how desperate we need to be coming back.”While the Rangers are 13-8-5 in games by decided by two goals or fewer, they also have faltered against some of the Eastern Conference’s top teams. They took a 6-3 loss at Tampa Bay on Dec. 10 after scoring the first two goals, allowed four goals in the second period at Toronto on Saturday and are 0-1-1 against the Washington Capitals.“In the last few weeks here, it’s been hard to get the wins,” Lundqvist said. “So when we get back, we really have to dig deep.”While wins are difficult for the Rangers after last month’s hot streak, getting points is not for Hayes.Hayes is on a career-high seven-game point streak that is also the longest by a Ranger this season. During his streak, Hayes has accumulated five goals and eight assists and in his last 24 games, he has eight goals and 19 assists.The Rangers are 11-6 in the last 17 meetings against Columbus while 11 of the last 12 encounters with the Blue Jackets have been decided by two goals or fewer.

NEW YORK (AP) Lou Lamoriello is taking over the New York Islanders.All the questions belong to him now.The Islanders announced the hiring of Lamoriello on Tuesday as president of hockey operations Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey , giving the longtime NHL executive the keys to a franchise that has missed the playoffs eight times in the past 12 years with Garth Snow as general manager.The 75-year-old Lamoriello, who led the New Jersey Devils to three Stanley Cup titles and helped Toronto become playoff contenders again, is tasked with trying to re-sign star center John Tavares and the future of Snow and coach Doug Weight.Lamoriello said he had no preconceived notions about the inner workings of the Islanders, and he also wasn’t willing to show his hand on what he might do with the team.”As I’ve done in the past in a situation like this, I take a step back and see exactly what the people who you have in place have to offer, what their thoughts are, what their vision is and then make decisions as I go along,” Lamoriello said on a conference call. ”I certainly have thoughts like you think I would have. But rather than express them, I’d rather just keep them to myself and allow the process to take place before making any judgments.”Those judgments will be his to make. The Islanders said Lamoriello ”will have full authority over all hockey matters with the organization.””We are committed to giving Lou every resource and the full support of the entire organization as we pursue our program to compete at the highest level,” co-owner Scott Malkin said.This move undoubtedly takes power away from Snow, who has four years left on his contract originally signed by previous owner Charles Wang. Lamoriello’s hiring was first reported by The Athletic, which said Snow’s deal has a ”steep buyout.”But Lamoriello didn’t go to the Islanders to share power. He left New Jersey to become Toronto’s GM in 2015 after he was bumped upstairs and replaced by Ray Shero. The move to the Islanders comes after he was shifted into an advisory role with the Maple Leafs, who promoted Kyle Dubas.One of Lamoriello’s most pressing issues is Tavares, who can become an unrestricted free agent July 1. The 27-year-old forward just finished a $33 million, six-year contract. He had 37 goals and 47 assists this season, finishing a goal and an assist shy of the career highs he set in 2014-15.Lamoriello had nothing but praise for the star center Keith Yandle Jersey , who will receive a lucrative long-term deal this summer from the Islanders or another team.”He’s one of the elite players, a gentleman both on and off the ice and he’s just a quality individual as well as a quality player,” Lamoriello said.Because the Islanders missed the playoffs the past two years, hiring Lamoriello is at the very least a sign to Tavares of ownership’s willingness to make improvements. Lamoriello led the Devils’ hockey operations from 1987-2015, reaching the Stanley Cup Final five times and winning in 1995, 2000 and 2003, and is well-respected for his management expertise.That will be tested in his third stint running a front office, this time for a team that has had son Chris Lamoriello as assistant GM since 2016. He takes over just a month before the draft and five weeks before the clock runs out on re-signing Tavares before he hits the open market, giving him tight deadlines to ”bring the Islanders back where they were” in the 1980s when they won the Cup four times.”When there is time, you use it. When there isn’t, you make a decision,” Lamoriello said. ”We’ll have to evaluate everything in a short period of time, but not at a rushed pace.”—Follow Vin Cherwoo at twitter.com/VinCherwooAP and Stephen Whyno at twitter.com/SWhyno .— WASHINGTON (AP) In his first home Stanley Cup Final game after 13 long years checkered with as many disappointments as milestones, Alex Ovechkin was not going to be denied the opportunity to do something special.He played with an edge. He played with joy. And he played with the leadership his Washington Capitals have come to expect.Ovechkin dived to the ice to score his 14th goal of the playoffs, laid down to block shots, dished out hits and Authentic Nick Bjugstad Jersey , along with Evgeny Kuznetsov, muscled the Capitals past the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 on Saturday night to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series.Showing the kind of emotion on the ice and the bench from his younger days, Ovechkin led the way and now has Washington two wins away from the first championship in the 43-year history of the franchise.”It’s the Stanley Cup Final,” Ovechkin said. ”What do you wanna do? It’s all in for everybody.”The Capitals suddenly look in complete control of the series thanks to Ovechkin and Kuznetsov, who fired a wrist shot past Marc-Andre Fleury that made it perfectly clear the injury that knocked him out of Game 2 was not bothering him. Invoking Michael Jordan’s 63-point game on a broken foot and 38-point game with the flu, Kuznetsov said: ”When you’re hurt, you play a little better always.”It doesn’t get much better than this for Kuznetsov and Ovechkin. As Kuznetsov flapped his arms in celebration of his goal on a 2-on-1 rush, Ovechkin screamed and raised his arms to the bench – showing the same emotion he did in the final minutes of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final and when Braden Holtby made a stick save of a lifetime to preserve a 3-2 win in Game 2.”It’s just automatic. You just get excited,” Ovechkin said. ”It’s huge moments for us. You just want to give emotion to your teammates and to yourself, as well.”Fired up for the first Cup Final game in Washington since 1998, the Capitals unloaded chance after chance on Fleury, who made 23 saves but couldn’t backstop a frazzled, disjointed team that lost two games in a row for the first time in the playoff and is trailing in a series for the first time.At the other end, Braden Holtby gifted Tomas Nosek a goal by giving the puck away but stopped the other 21 shots he faced from the Golden Knights, who looked nothing like the winners of 13 of their first 16 playoff games through the first three rounds.”All year we’ve had a lot of guys going,” Vegas defenseman Deryk Engelland said. ”That hasn’t been the case. Our goalie’s been bailing us out with huge saves all night and we have to bear down and be better for him.”The Golden Knights’ historic run in its inaugural season is now in danger of coming to an end with Game 4 back in Washington on Monday night.”We haven’t been behind in any series Vincent Trocheck Jersey ,” Fleury said. ”It doesn’t mean we’re out of it.”They’re not out, but they’re down because Holtby was there when the Capitals needed him by making 21 saves on 22 shots. Of course, they didn’t need him much because they were on the attack for much of the game and also blocked 26 shots in front of Holtby.”I think there’s more to blocking shots than just going out there and trying to get hit,” Holtby said. ”We’re doing a great job of creating the right layers, guys going out there strategically to know which lane I’m picking for sight lines and they’re taking away the other half and making big blocks. That’s a huge part of why we’re having success defensively because it’s all through our lineup.”Ovechkin attempted eight shots in the first period and scored a goal that seemed inevitable. It came 1:10 into the second period when Ovechkin threw himself full extension over Vegas defenseman Brayden McNabb to reach the rebound and backhand the puck past Fleury.”I thought it was sort of the right thing in a playoff game, our first victory in the final at home, that Alex would score the first goal,” coach Barry Trotz said. ”I thought that was a little bit of poetic justice if you will for all the tough times.Ovechkin’s goal matched John Druce’s franchise record set in 1990 and tied him for the league lead in these playoffs.When Kuznetsov showed his injured left arm is just fine by scoring on a perfect shot on an odd-man rush, Ovechkin looked to the ceiling with his arms extended as he was hugged by Lars Eller.”Ovi, he always shows his emotions when he scores, but he’ll be just as happy for somebody else scoring,” Eller said. ”He wants to win as bad as anyone. You see how our team celebrates when somebody else scores. Everybody is happy for one another and everybody is happy for the team.”The red-clad raucous crowd was quieted when Vegas scored early in the third period. Holtby – well-aware of the Golden Knights’ ability to cross up opposing goaltenders – had his puck-handling attempt intercepted by Pierre-Edouard Bellemare. The puck skittered to Nosek for an easy goal.Vegas built some momentum, but Devante Smith-Pelly gave the Capitals an insurance goal with 6:07 left – his fourth of the playoffs – after Jay Beagle took the puck away from Shea Theodore on the forecheck and found his teammate skating in alone on Fleury. Vegas pulled Fleury for more than two minutes at the end of the game but couldn’t break through.The Capitals have now pieced together consecutive wins against the hottest team in the playoffs and are game-by-game exorcising the demons of the past decade and more.”We’ve had a lot of moments, not as many good ones as we’d like, Trotz said. ”In past failures you’d feel a lot of anxiety even before you started the playoffs. I think we’ve gotten past that as a group.”—More Stanley Cup coverage: apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals

RALEIGH St. Louis Blues Hoodies Authentic , N.C. (AP) Even as an offensive-minded defenseman, earning a hat trick never really entered Justin Faulk’s mind.That changed Tuesday night.Faulk had his first career hat trick, Jeff Skinner scored twice, and the Carolina Hurricanes routed the short-handed Los Angeles Kings 7-3.Faulk’s three goals came in a span of 12:21 as Carolina raced out to a 5-0 lead. He became the 10th defenseman in NHL history to score a natural hat trick.”It’s not something I ever really thought about, getting a hat trick,” Faulk said. ”I know I’ve had plenty of two-goal games. It’s pretty cool. I like that (defenseman) scoring, so hopefully it happens more.”Jacob Slavin and Sebastian Aho also scored for the Hurricanes, who won their third straight and finished their eight-game homestand 5-2-1. Cam Ward made 27 saves.Slavin opened the scoring 6:40 into the game and Faulk scored just over two minutes later. He scored again on a slap shot in the waning minutes of the first period, and completed his hat trick with another slap shot 1:17 into the second period.”Obviously the puck was coming off the stick tonight all right tonight,” Faulk said. ”I’m not going to turn down opportunities to shoot. Sometimes that’s probably (been) a bad thing in my career, I shoot a little too much once in a while. But I treated it the same, whether I had one goal or three goals.”Anze Kopitar St. Louis Blues Hats Authentic , Tyler Toffoli, and Torrey Mitchell scored the Kings, who were without key forwards Dustin Brown (suspension) and Trevor Lewis (injury). Jonathan Quick saved 16 of 20 shots before being pulled following Faulk’s third goal.Carolina outshot Los Angeles 41-30 and was in control from the outset.The Hurricanes outshot the Kings 18-3 in the first period. The result was a 3-0 edge at the first intermission.”They showed up to work and we didn’t,” Los Angeles coach John Stevens said. ”Pretty simple…Penalty kill, checking, breaking the puck out, you’ve got to put your work boots on and you’ve got be ready to work. We didn’t, and we got the result we deserve.”Carolina piled on in the second. Faulk reached his hat trick with a slapper on the power play from the left point that beat Quick – his second straight power play goal – to make it 4-0, and the Kings netminder skated to the bench as hats rained onto the ice at PNC Arena.Darcy Kuemper replaced Quick and was given the same rough treatment. Carolina peppered him with five quick shots, including one that hit the crossbar and another that hit the post, and Skinner finally found twine on the power play with a wrist shot over Kuemper’s glove into the top corner of the net.The Kings kicked into gear down five goals. Kopitar’s power-play goal got them going and Toffoli banged home a loose puck in front of the net in the final minutes of the second. Mitchell’s pristine redirection of a Kyle Clifford pass 6:43 into the third period made it interesting, but Skinner squashed any comeback hopes with a backhander with 5:45 left.”They were coming Custom St. Louis Blues Jerseys ,” Skinner said. ”They’re a good team, they’ve got some skilled guys. I think once we scored that goal there, it turned it around for us”.Aho followed with a breakaway goal for the finishing touch.Kuemper made 18 saves on 21 shots in relief of Quick.NOTES: Carolina scored three power plays goals in a game for the first time this season. … Teuvo Teravainen had three assists and Aho, Justin Williams and Victor Rask had two for the Hurricanes. … Skinner passed Geoff Sanderson (196) for seventh place on Carolina’s all-time goals list and Erik Cole (363) for third on the team’s all-time points list. … The Kings placed Lewis (upper body injury) on injured reserve before the game, retroactive to Feb. 9. … Brown served a one-game suspension for kneeing Tampa Bay D Mikhail Sergachev on Feb. 10.UP NEXTKings: Continue their seven-game road trip at Pittsburgh on Thursday.Hurricanes: Travel to face New Jersey on Thursday. PHILADELPHIA (AP) Sidney Crosby’s continued dominance of the Flyers helped the two-time defending Stanley Cup champion Penguins move back into first place.Conor Sheary scored two goals, Crosby had three assists and Pittsburgh surged into the top spot in the Metropolitan Division with a 5-2 victory over the Flyers on Wednesday night.Phil Kessel, Jamie Oleksiak and Evgeni Malkin also scored for the Penguins, who have won three straight. Pittsburgh (39-25-4, 82 points) moved one point ahead of idle Washington and three in front of third-place Philadelphia.Crosby continued to haunt the Flyers, upping his total to 91 points in 62 career games against Pittsburgh’s intrastate rival.”Everybody gets up for it,” Crosby said of the rivalry. ”It brings out the best in everybody.”Crosby’s third assist gave him 1,100 career points.”His line was dynamic www.officiallightningprostore.com ,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said.Sheary began the game on the fourth line, but played alongside Crosby for parts of the night – and benefited greatly. Crosby assisted on both goals to help Sheary break out of a slump, as he entered without a goal in 15 straight contests.”He goes to tough areas and plays bigger than he is,” Crosby said of the 5-foot-8 Sheary.”Thrilled for Conor,” Sullivan said. ”Essentially what I told him is, `Nothing lasts forever.”’Travis Konecny and Jakub Voracek had goals for the Flyers, who lost their fourth in a row.”We didn’t play a complete game 5-on-5,” Philadelphia coach Dave Hakstol said. ”We made some mistakes.”The teams combined for six goals in an electrifying second period.Voracek netted his 15th of the season 2:07 into the period to tie it at 1. Nolan Patrick caused a turnover with strong backchecking, passed to Voracek and his shot from the side boards deflected off Pittsburgh’s Derick Brassard and past Tristan Jarry.Konecny put Philadelphia ahead 3:54 later when he batted the puck over Jarry’s right pad.But the Penguins scored three straight goals to take a 4-2 lead into the third.”They scored when they needed to score,” Voracek said. ”They make you pay.”Oleksiak tied it at 2 with 10:36 remaining with a slap shot that got through the screen of Crosby and Jake Guentzel and past Peter Mrazek.”He can really shoot the puck, has a bomb of a shot,” Sullivan said.Sheary gave the Penguins a 3-2 lead with his first of the night Tampa Bay Lightning T-Shirts Authentic , finishing a 2-on-1 break with Crosby with 5:35 remaining in the period. Mrazek made a good pad save on Crosby’s initial shot. But the rebound went right to Sheary, who backhanded it in for his 13th of the season.Sheary’s second goal from a sharp angle with 49.3 seconds left in the period put Pittsburgh ahead by two goals. Guentzel’s shot from the high slot deflected off Flyers defenseman Brandon Manning to a wide-open Sheary to the right of the net, and Mrazek couldn’t recover in time. Crosby got a secondary assist on the goal, his third of the night.Kessel, playing in his 900th NHL game, opened the scoring with 1:25 left in the first period on the power play on assists from Malkin and Crosby. Malkin set the goal up with a perfect pass across the crease, and Kessel converted the easy finish with a forehand shot for his 28th goal.Malkin’s goal was an empty-netter with 1:41 remaining.NOTES: Philadelphia Eagles LB Mychal Kendricks helped provided on-ice commentary during the first period. … Pittsburgh improved to 3-0 against the Flyers this season. The teams wrap up their regular-season series on March 25 in Pittsburgh. … Mrazek has allowed 19 goals while losing the last four games. … Philadelphia F Wayne Simmonds returned after missing seven games due to a lower-body injury.
