    Sam Reinhart Jersey

    VANCOUVER Kyle Okposo Jersey , British Columbia (AP) — Casey DeSmith wanted another crack at the Vancouver Canucks, and he didn’t waste it.The backup goalie stopped 29 shots for his second career shutout, and the Pittsburgh Penguins got two goals apiece from Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in beating the Canucks 5-0 on Saturday night.DeSmith lost the previous matchup between the teams Oct. 16 when Brock Boeser scored 34 seconds into overtime.“I don’t like losing and the way we lost, I felt the overtime goal I could have had, so that has kind of been on my mind since the last time and that was actually the last game I played,” DeSmith said. “It just so happened my next game was against these guys and that worked out well.”He got the nod over Matt Murray in the final game of Pittsburgh’s four-game trip to Canada and helped his team complete a sweep. The Penguins also won at Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary.DeSmith’s previous shutout came on April 26 against Ottawa.Phil Kessel also scored for Pittsburgh, which has just one loss in regulation this season.“They’ve got some world-class players that can score if you give them the chance,” Canucks coach Travis Green said.Jacob Markstrom stopped 30 shots for Vancouver. He kept the Canucks in the game with several clutch saves, including in the first period when he sprawled to turn away a rocket from Malkin with his left skate.Still, the goaltender wasn’t happy with his performance.“No Authentic Rasmus Ristolainen Jersey Fanatics Branded: New Adidas Breakaway Womens Youth Buffalo Sabres NHL Jerseys , 5-0 on the board, you can’t be happy,” Markstrom said. “It’s a 60-minute game. You’ve got to play good all 60.”Pittsburgh opened the scoring midway through the second period, following a patient move by Olli Maatta. The defenseman had been waiting for a chance at the point and fired a shot that bounced off Markstrom’s pads. Kessel sneaked around the back of the net and found the rebound, banging it in for his seventh goal of the season, which leads the Penguins.Kessel played in his 255th consecutive game for Pittsburgh, surpassing Malkin for the franchise record.Crosby scored later in the period, collecting the puck in front and sending a backhand past Markstrom.Malkin’s goals came 59 seconds apart in the third. The Russian center also assisted on Kessel’s goal, and said the two have good chemistry.“When Phil plays good, I am playing good. When he is feeling it, I feel it www.blackhawksshoponline.com , too. When he is lazy I am like, I can’t do it myself,” Malkin said.Malkin’s first goal came off a saucer pass from Daniel Sprong that he quickly buried in the side of the net. Less than a minute later, Malkin again found the puck in front and sliced it in past Markstrom. He has four goals and 11 assists in his last seven games.Crosby capped the scoring with just more than two minutes left, firing in a shot from the side of the net. The Penguins’ captain has five goals and three assists during a four-game scoring streak.NOTES: Boeser and 19-year-old rookie center Elias Pettersson returned from injuries for Vancouver. Boeser had missed two games with a groin injury, while Pettersson had been sidelined with a concussion since Oct. 13. Boeser has six points in 10 games, and Pettersson registered five goals and three assists in his first five NHL outings. Green had the pair skating together on a line with Nikolay Goldobin for much of the game. The trio combined for six shots. “I thought we came out fast and spent a lot of time in their zone,” Green said. “But at the end of the day, you’ve got to find a way to put a puck in the back of the net.”UP NEXTPenguins: Host the New York Islanders on Tuesday.Canucks: Continue their four-game homestand Monday against Minnesota. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets got plenty of lucky breaks in their surprisingly successful 2016-17 season.Serious injuries were avoided, their power play was one of the NHL’s best Chicago Blackhawks T-Shirts Womens , and goalie Sergei Bobrovsky won the Vezina Trophy. Pucks bounced the Blue Jackets’ way more often than not as they piled up a 16-game winning streak and earned a playoff spot, just one season removed from a last-place finish in the Metropolitan Division.Good fortune has been a little bit harder to come by this season for the Blue Jackets, who are in danger of fading out of the playoff picture in the Metro. Injuries have taken some of the team’s best players out of action for big chunks of time. The power-play is worst in the league. The penalty-kill is only slightly better.”We’re spoiled because of the year we had last year when everything went our way, we got breaks, we were healthy, a lot of things went our way,” said Columbus coach John Tortorella after the Blue Jackets outshot Washington 39-25 on Tuesday night but lost the game when Nicklas Backstrom scored with 43 seconds left.”As I’ve always said, we forced them to go our way for the most part, but you do get some luck in a year,” he said. ”We had a ton of it. We’ve got (crap) for luck right now.”Forwards Cam Atkinson, Brandon Dubinsky Sam Reinhart Jersey , Nick Foligno and Boone Jenner – players expected to be top goal scorers – all were slow to get started. Atkinson just got back on the ice after missing a month with a broken foot. A fractured orbital bone sustained in a fight Dec. 12 sidelined Dubinsky for six weeks. He just got back in the lineup, scoring the tying goal in the third period Tuesday night.Jenner missed the first seven games of the season with an injury. Center Alexander Wennberg and defenseman Zach Werenski also have been out with hurts.Those players were expected to shoulder the load. Instead it’s been wingers Artemi Panarin, Josh Anderson and Oliver Bjorkstrand, as well as all-star defenseman Seth Jones. Their production has kept the Blue Jackets in playoff contention, but every other team in the Metro Division is within reach, too.Bobrovsky is eighth in the league in wins, and his .920 save percentage is down from the cumulative .931 of last season. Columbus has lost four straight and nine of the last 11, but Tortorella sees progress.”It’s been that way most of the year here, where things just haven’t totally gone our way in games,” he said. ”Somehow we’ve got to have the wherewithal to keep finding ourselves, keep staying with it Womens Zemgus Girgensons Jersey , and turn these games into wins and try to get on a run.”On Tuesday, the Blue Jackets moved the puck effectively and went hard at Washington goalie Braden Holtby in a 3-2 loss that Tortorella described as ”a kick in the stomach.””We were around the net a lot,” Jones said. ”A bounce here and a bounce there is a couple more goals for us.”Columbus will get another crack at the Capitals in Washington on Friday night. Six of the next seven games are against Metro Division rivals, so that stretch is likely to determine whether the Blue Jackets will return to the playoffs. There haven’t been back-to-back playoff years in the 18-year history of the franchise.”It’s a grind,” Dubinsky said. ”It’s a long season. Nobody said it was going to be easy for us. It’s hard right now, not getting the results. I think we’re putting in some good minutes. We just have to come to work tomorrow with our heads up and be ready and willing to get better.”—
