    Womens Derek Dorsett Jersey

    PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins have re-signed forward Riley Sheahan to a $2.1 million Christopher Tanev Jersey , one-year contract.General manager Jim Rutherford announced the signing Wednesday, hours after clearing salary-cap space by trading winger Conor Sheary and defenseman Matt Hunwick to Buffalo for a conditional-fourth round pick.Sheahan had 11 goals and 21 assists in 71 games with the Penguins after they acquired him from Detroit in October. Despite going scoreless in eight games with the Red Wings before the trade, Sheahan set career highs in assists and points last season.The Penguins risked losing Sheahan in free agency after he led them in faceoffs and was a key depth player in finishing second in the Metropolitan Division. The 26-year-old was a pending unrestricted free agent.In 365 NHL regular-season games with Detroit and Pittsburgh, Sheahan has 49 goals and 81 assists.— TORONTO — The Montreal Canadiens visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night as two long-time rivals open the season with widely different expectations.After signing free agent center John Tavares in the offseason to augment an already promising group of young players led by center Auston Matthews, the Maple Leafs are shooting for the Stanley Cup this season. Tavares had a fine preseason, working well with right winger Mitch Marner.The Canadiens, however, are trying to climb back to respectability after a dismal 2017-18 season.Article continues below ...The Maple Leafs have shown signs during the past two seasons that they are growing into Cup contenders, but they have lost in the playoffs in the first round twice in a row.And with a pair of first-round losses in the past two Stanley Cup playoffs relatively fresh, the Leafs collectively shake their heads at the idea a similar fate could be awaiting them next April.“We’ve been there, done that Authentic Daniel Sedin Jersey ,” defenseman Morgan Rielly said. “We have done the thing where we make the playoffs and lose in the first round. It’s not very fun and I think we’re tired of that. The goal is to start with a good couple of months, build toward a playoff push, make the playoffs and go from there. You have to take it one step at a time, but when you look at the big picture, you want to play longer and have a shorter summer than we did in the last two years.”The Canadiens made two big offseason deals, sending Alex Galchenyuk to the Arizona Coyotes and former captain Mac Pacioretty to the Vegas Golden Knights. In return, the Habs received Max Domi from Arizona and Tomas Tatar, a second-round draft pick and good prospect Nick Suzuki from Vegas.The Canadiens also named defenseman Shea Weber as the 30th captain in the team’s storied history Monday, replacing Pacioretty. “I don’t know how many times you can say an honor, because you look at the guys (on the walls) in our dressing room, guys that have worn this letter in this organization’s history Womens Derek Dorsett Jersey , it’s special,” said Weber, 33, who was acquired from the Nashville Predators two years ago in exchange for P.K. Subban. Weber underwent offseason knee surgery and is not expected to be return to competition until mid-December, which makes it even important that goaltender Carey Price regains his old magic.Habs general manager Marc Bergevin said the choice for captain was obvious. “The players all feel the same way, we all feel the same way that Shea is the right guy to lead this team and we didn’t want to wait,” he said. “Training camp was over, season starts on Wednesday and (Monday) was the perfect day.”In another development, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, the third overall pick in the draft this past June, has earned a roster spot to open the season. The 18-year-old is the youngest Canadiens player since Mario Tremblay broke in shortly after his 18th birthday in 1974.As the opener drew closer Adidas Authentic Steven Stamkos Jersey Premier Womens Youth Big&Tall Tampa Bay Lightning NHL Shop Free Shipping , the Maple Leafs were still waiting to sign their restricted free agent William Nylander.Meanwhile, the Leafs traded defenseman Connor Carrick to the Dallas Stars for a seventh-round draft choice Monday and put goaltenders Curtis McElhinney and Calvin Pickard on waivers. Both were claimed, which means Garret Sparks, the American Hockey League goaltender of the year last season with the Toronto Marlies, will begin the season as the backup for Frederik Andersen.“We’re going to be ready to go, for sure,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “In the NHL, there is nothing between all of us. Every night you play it’s a one-goal game and it’s a battle. And yet the good teams win more of those one-goal games and at the end, it seems like you won every night easy. But you didn’t. You scratched and clawed your way through the year. That’s just what you do.”

    Paul Stastny Jersey

    COLUMBUS Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey , Ohio (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins battled back to force overtime and picked up a win over the Columbus Blue Jackets, who still got the point they needed to clinch a playoff spot for the second straight season.The Penguins answered every Columbus goal in regulation before Phil Kessel scored 1:06 into overtime to get the 5-4 victory in a tight game before an amped-up sellout crowd.”We were resilient tonight,” Kessel said. ”We’ve been here before.”Columbus entered the game needing one point in the standings and earned that when it forced the overtime. They’ll go to the playoffs in consecutive years for the first time in franchise history.”It’s a little bittersweet because it’s Pittsburgh, and you don’t want to lose to them,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. ”But in the big picture for our team, for our guys, I am really happy for them.”The Penguins and Blue Jackets are second and third place, respectively, in the Metropolitan Division with playoff positioning not likely to be settled until this weekend.Columbus is tied with New Jersey – which beat Toronto on Thursday – with 97 points, but the Blue Jackets hold the tiebreaker.Conor Sheary tied the game at 12:16 in the third period to set up the overtime winner by Kessel, whose shot from the left circle was his second goal of the game and 33rd of the season.Patric Hornqvist and Kris Letang also scored, and Matt Murray had 26 saves for Pittsburgh, which completed a 4-0 season sweep of Columbus.”We have such great leadership,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said. ”These guys, they play their best when the stakes are high. They’ve proven it time and time again.”Zach Werenski, Matt Calvert, Boone Jenner and Cam Atkinson scored for Columbus, and Sergei Bobrovsky had 38 saves.Werenski put the Blue Jackets up 1-0 five minutes into the game when he gathered a centering pass from Pierre Luc-Dubois and backhanded the puck between Murray and the near post. Kessel went top shelf over Bobrovsky on a power play to tie it at the halfway point of the first period.A few minutes later, Calvert danced around Penguins defenseman Olli Maata and lifted a shot over Murray’s shoulder . Hornqvist knotted it again at 15:35 when he batted a bouncing puck past Bobrovsky’s glove.The Blue Jackets scored on a power play in the second period when Jenner connected from the slot off a sweet centering pass from Thomas Vanek.Early in the third period Adidas Authentic Patrik Laine Jersey Premier Womens Youth Big&Tall Winnipeg Jets NHL Shop Free Shipping , Pittsburgh tied the score yet again when Letang clanged one in off the top bar from the right circle. Atkinson made it 4-3 when he poked a shot in from the doorstep 8:25 into the third.Sheary tied the score again with a shot that Bobrovsky deflected with his glove.”We showed a lot of character there, finding ways to hold on and get back into it,” Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said.”They’re a team that really builds on leads, especially at home, so we did a good job of finding ways to get ourselves back in it and even it up pretty quick.”NOTES: Pierre-Luc Dubois tied Zach Werenski’s rookie single-season point record with 47 and pushed his point streak to a career-high eight games. … Artemi Panarin, with assists on two of the goals, also has a five-game point streak. He has a franchise-record 82 points this season. … Hornqvist has four goals in the past four games. … Columbus defenseman Markus Nutivaara missed his second game with an upper-body injury. … Columbus F Josh Anderson returned after missing 17 games with a knee injury. … Pittsburgh F Derick Brassard missed his fourth game with a lower-body injury.UP NEXTPittsburgh: Hosts Ottawa on Friday night to finish regular season.Columbus: Ends regular season on Saturday night at Nashville.— BOSTON (AP) The Boston Bruins appear to be quite ready for the playoffs.And the Tampa Bay Lightning are slumping at the wrong time of the season.The top two teams in the Eastern Conference slugged it out Thursday night and Boston prevailed, knocking Tampa Bay out of first place for the first time since October with a 4-2 win on Thursday night.”This definitely had a playoff feel to it,” said Brand Marchand, whose empty-net goal with 56 seconds left sealed it for the Bruins, who took over first place in the conference with less than two weeks remaining in the regular season.”Obviously we all know how big it was for the standings and what it meant for both teams. So it was great to see the guys react the way they did and have the game we did.”Patrice Bergeron had a goal and two assists, Tim Schaller and David Pastrnak scored goals 32 seconds apart in the final minute of the first period and Tuukka Rask made 26 saves for the Bruins, who have 107 points and lead Tampa Bay by a point.Boston has six games remaining in the regular season to five for Tampa Bay.For the first time since Oct. 18, a team other than the Lightning leads the Eastern Conference.”I think it means that we’ve been playing pretty good hockey the last couple of months,” said Rask, who also helped set the emotional tone by unloading a flurry of punches on Tampa Bay’s Cory Conacher during a scrum in the second.It was one of many times in the game that postseason implications were apparent, including a rare fight for Pastrnak in the third period and several more battles before the officials had to separate both sides one final time – after the third-period buzzer.”There was a ton of passion,” Tampa Bay’s Alex Killorn said. ”There was a lot of hits and a lot of scrums after the whistle. It seems like it could potentially be a playoff matchup. It definitely had a playoff atmosphere tonight.”J.T. Miller scored a power-play goal for Tampa Bay in the second and Victor Hedman added a goal in the third. Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 26 saves for the Lightning, who have lost three straight and are 0-3 against the Bruins this season.”Playing in here is always difficult Paul Stastny Jersey ,” Killorn said. ”The second and third period, I think we did a pretty good job. We created a lot more opportunities for ourselves.”Killorn had an apparent goal waved off in the third when a teammate was in the crease with Boston leading 2-1. A few minutes later, Torey Krug passed to Bergeron at the side of the net for a goal to put Boston up 3-1 at 11:59 of the third.The Lightning cut it to 3-2 when Hedman beat Rask through his legs with 6:06 remaining in the third, but Marchand’s empty-netter sealed it and Boston took over the top spot in the division and conference.”It was a big win for us. Finally we jumped them after a whole season chasing them,” Pastrnak said.The Bruins outshot the Lightning 17-6 in the first period and took a 2-0 lead with a pair of goals in the final minute.Schaller put Boston up 1-0 after stealing the puck from Ryan McDonagh just inside the blue line and started a 2-on-1 break with Tommy Wingels, who got off a shot as Schaller crashed the net and poked in the rebound.Killorn took an interference penalty with 31 seconds remaining and Pastrnak scored 5 seconds into the penalty, putting the Bruins up 2-0 with 26 seconds left in the period.The game paused for a few minutes with 8:44 left in the second after Rask took a few shots at Conacher when he was slow to get up after getting tangled with Brandon Carlo in the crease.Rask landed several punches with his glove before players from both teams jumped in and were eventually separated.Vasilevskiy skated toward the other end, but was cut off at the blue line by referee Francois St. Laurent, who kept the Tampa Bay goalie from entering the fray. Boston fans roared their approval by shouting ”Tuuuuuuuuk!” throughout the altercation.Later in the second, it was Pastrnak stepping in after a hit on Bergeron and squaring off with Tampa Bay’s Dan Girardi. Pastrnak said it was his first fight and his inexperience showed when Girardi quickly took him down, but the Bruins appreciated his effort.”I don’t think I’ve fought ever – like ever,” he said. ”I’m a pretty calm-down guy.”NOTES: Krug finished with two assists. The Lightning and Bruins play one more time in the regular season, Tuesday night in Tampa Bay. … Boston improved to 7-1-0 in its past eight against Tampa Bay. … Boston D Zdeno Chara, who signed a one-year contract extension with the Bruins on Wednesday, missed his seventh straight game with an upper-body injury. … Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper entered the game with 239 wins, tied with John Tortorella for the most in franchise history. … The Bruins haven’t lost in regulation since Florida shut them out 3-0 on March 15.UP NEXTLightning: At New York Rangers on Friday night.Bruins: Host Florida on Saturday afternoon.—

    Youth Derek Grant JerseyLeon Draisaitl Jersey

    WASHINGTON (AP) Injured star Evgeni Malkin was out of the Pittsburgh Penguins‘ lineup for Game 2 of their second-round series against the Washington Capitals.Coach Mike Sullivan confirmed about two hours before Sunday’s puck drop that Malkin was out for the third consecutive game. Malkin appeared to injure his left leg in Game 5 of Pittsburgh’s first-round series against Philadelphia and has not played since.”We’re a better team when Geno’s in our lineup Womens Kris Russell Jersey ,” Sullivan said. ”Having said that, I don’t think our team looks for any sort of excuses. I think we try to rally around one another. It’s a next-man-up attitude, we have capable people in our lineup, it provides opportunities for others to play a more significant role and they want to take advantage of those opportunities.”Malkin’s continued absence affords a bigger role for centers Derick Brassard and Riley Sheahan, and, combined with an upper-body injury to Carl Hagelin, keeps Carter Rowney and Dominik Simon in the lineup. On Saturday, it looked like Malkin could be ready to return; he participated in a full practice, skating on the fourth line and taking turns on the top power-play unit.But Sullivan and Malkin both said the 31-year-old Russian would play only if he was ready from the first shift and was not limited to a minor role. Sullivan said Malkin did not experience a setback and could return for Game 3 in Pittsburgh on Tuesday.”It doesn’t matter who’s in the game. You just did need to win the game,” Washington coach Barry Trotz said. ”Obviously he’s a top player. There’s no question about it. It’s undeniable. But at the same time, it doesn’t really matter.”Malkin had three goals and two assists in five first-round games. Without him, the Penguins eliminate the Flyers in Game 6 a week ago and erased a two-goal deficit Thursday to take a 1-0 series lead on the Capitals.The potent Penguins power play misses an important piece without Malkin, though it only got two opportunities for a total of 2:32 in Game 1.”It was limited time, so it’s hard to evaluate whether or not we were able to have success, with or without him,” Sullivan said. ”We have capable guys. The people we have are very capable of being successful. We just have to find ways to have success if given the opportunity.”—AP Sports Writer Howard Fendrich contributed to this report.— TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tuukka Rask stopped 23 shots to hand Tampa Bay its first shutout of the season and lifting the Boston Bruins over the Lightning 3-0 on Saturday night.It was Rask’s third shutout of the season and 41st of his career. It was also the first time the Lightning failed to score a goal since a 4-0 loss at Boston last April 4 – also against Rask.David Pastrnak, David Backes and Riley Nash all scored for Boston, which moved within two points of the Lightning for the top spot in the Eastern Conference with one game in hand. Torey Krug assisted on all three of the Bruins’ goals.Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 24 shots for the Lightning, whose last shutout at home came on March 16, 2017, by Toronto’s Frederik Andersen. Tampa Bay has lost consecutive games for the first time since going 9-0-1 in the previous 10 games.FLYERS 4, HURRICANES 2RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Valterri Filppula scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:49 left, and Philadelphia scored four times in the third period to beat Carolina.Travis Konecny and Jakub Voracek also scored as the Flyers scored three times in a 5:52 span to rally for the win. Michael Raffl added an empty-netter and Alex Lyon stopped 23 shots.Filppula’s breakaway goal snapped a 2-2 tie and secured a needed victory for the Flyers, who entered on a 1-6-1 skid. Philadelphia moved back into third place in the Metropolitan Division, tied with Columbus but holding the tiebreaker.Jaccob Slavin and Jordan Staal scored and Cam Ward made 23 saves for the Hurricanes, who have lost five of six.DEVILS 3, KINGS 0LOS ANGELES (AP) – Keith Kinkaid stopped 38 shots for his first shutout of the season to lead New Jersey past Los Angeles.Michael Grabner, Nico Hischier and Miles Wood each scored for the Devils, who have won three straight and four of five. New Jersey remained in the second wild card spot in the Eastern Conference, one point behind Metropolitan Division rivals Philadelphia and Columbus, who both won later Saturday night.Jonathan Quick made 25 saves for the Kings, who are tied with Anaheim for third in the Pacific.Kinkaid is 3-0-0 in his career against the Kings with two shutouts. He has won four consecutive starts and is 9-2-0 in his last 11.BLUE JACKETS 2, SENATORS 1COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Markus Nutivaara scored a power-play goal in the second period, Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 22 shots, and Columbus beat Ottawa.Boone Jenner also scored – his third tally in three games – for the Blue Jackets, who have won a season-high seven straight and are holding on to the first wild card spot in the Eastern Conference with 83 points, tied with Philadelphia and one point ahead of New Jersey.Alexandre Burrows scored his fifth of the year and Mike Condon stopped 33 shots for Ottawa, which saw a three-game winning streak snapped on the second night of a back-to-back.OILERS 4, PANTHERS 2SUNRISE Leon Draisaitl Jersey , Fla.

    Youth Pavel Zacha Jersey

    The Los Angeles Kings and Buffalo Sabres will try to turn things around when they meet on Saturday at Staples Center.The Kings (2-4-1) have been outscored 16-4 while losing their past three games Patrick Maroon Jersey , most recently giving up four unanswered goals in the third period of a 7-2 loss to the visiting New York Islanders on Thursday night.Buffalo (3-4-0) has lost its past two games by a combined score of 9-2. The Sabres gave up three straight goals in the third period of a 5-2 loss at the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.Article continues below ...“Our execution from the top of the circles to the red line, we’re forcing things there,” Sabres coach Phil Housley told reporters after the loss to San Jose. “We’ve just got to keep it more simple, especially on the road here, when you’re down by one or two, because there’s an opportunity to still come back in the game.”A main issue for the Kings and Sabres has been their lack of efficiency on the power play.Buffalo and the Calgary Flames had the most power-play opportunities of any teams in the NHL (29) through Thursday, but the Sabres have scored just four power-play goalsThe Kings did not score with the man-advantage on their first 22 power plays — the longest stretch of any NHL team this season — before scoring twice in the loss on Thursday.The power play woes took a back seat to the third-period play of the Kings on Thursday.They had cut the deficit to 3-2 on a 5-on-3 goal by Jeff Carter at 2:54 of the third period, and still had an extra attacker on the ice less than a minute later when the Islanders scored a shorthanded goal, opening the gates on a four-goal barrage over eight minutes.“I think we’ve got some soul searching to do,” Los Angeles defenseman Alec Martinez said. “What happened there at the end was unacceptable. It’s not one guy in particular. It’s all of us. We’ve got to figure some things out.”Kings coach John Stevens seemed to single out goalkeepers Jonathan Quick and Jack Campbell.Quick was playing his first game since missing the previous five with a lower-body injury. He allowed six goals on 29 shots before Campbell replaced him and gave up a goal on the first shot he faced.“The problem is, your goalies have got to keep playing,” Stevens said. “Those guys try to give you a chance to win every night, and they can’t stop playing. It’s disappointing.”The Kings are hoping to have Anze Kopitar back in the lineup. He was a late scratch on Thursday because of an illness. Kopitar was the team’s leading point scorer in 10 of the past 11 seasons.Los Angeles has also been without veteran forward, Dustin Brown, the team’s second-leading point scorer last season who broke a broken finger in the final preseason game. CALGARY Youth Pavel Zacha Jersey , Alberta (AP) The Calgary Flames have hired Bill Peters as the team’s head coach.The Flames introduced Peters at a news conference on Monday at Scotiabank Saddledome. The 53-year-old from Three Hills, Alberta, resigned as head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes on Friday after four seasons and a year remaining on his contract.The Flames fired Glen Gulutzan and assistants Dave Cameron and Paul Gerrard last week after missing the playoffs with a 37-35-10 record.In his NHL head coaching debut, Peters went 137-138-53 with the Hurricanes but wasn’t able to get the team into the playoffs.Carolina was looking for a new general manager as Ron Francis was reassigned within the organization, so Peters’ tenure there would have eventually been subject to the new GM’s approval.Peters is Calgary general manager Brad Treliving’s second head coaching hire after Gulutzan, and the fourth coach of the Flames in nine years after Gulutzan (2016-17) Bob Hartley (2012-16) and Brent Sutter (2009-12).”I think it’s a very good team and I think it’s a team that’s set up to win and play the modern game,” Peters said.”What I talk about the modern game, when you watch the playoffs, you need defense up in the rush, you need offense from your defense. We’re going to be able to do that with what we have.”The majority of the core is still in their prime and still has room to grow and a higher ceiling to be reached. There’s lots to work with and that’s exciting.”Calgary has finished outside the playoffs seven of the past nine years.Peters was the head coach and Treliving one of the general managers of the Canadian team that won gold at the 2016 men’s world hockey championship in Russia.Treliving had asked the Hurricanes for permission to speak to Peters last week about coming to Calgary. The GM said he didn’t talk to any other candidates.”This is an individual I’m familiar with,” Treliving said. ”I was focused on Bill. It’s based upon seeing and living it live with him over albeit a short period of time.”He’s prepared. I think he’s a student of the modern game. I think he’s relationship driven with players. He’s honest and direct.”Peters is coaching Canada again at the world championship May 4-20 in Copenhagen, Denmark.After leading the Spokane Chiefs to Western Hockey League and Memorial Cup championships in 2008, Peters spent three seasons coaching the AHL’s Rockford IceHogs and then joined the Detroit Red Wings coaching staff.He was an assistant for Mike Babcock in Detroit for three seasons before heading to Raleigh, N.C.—

    Womens Esa Lindell Jersey

    TORONTO — The Toronto Maple Leafs will be out to regain momentum Saturday night and the St. Louis Blues would like to start some momentum of their own.The Maple Leafs (6-2-0) had a five-game winning streak end Thursday night with a 3-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins and will be trying to resume winning when they host the Blues (1-3-2).“We’re obviously (upset) and disappointed that we didn’t get the result Dan Hamhuis Jersey Kids ,” said Maple Leafs center John Tavares, who took seven shots Thursday. “It’s a good learning opportunity and it’s a good test now to try to find that momentum back and get back in the win column.”Article continues below ...The Blues have lost twice in overtime and could not hold third-period leads three times. The Montreal Canadiens defeated them 3-2 Wednesday on Brendan Gallagher’s goal at 19:49 of the third period.“Bottom line, we’re faced with some adversity right now,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. “For me, this is when we’ll really see what people have to bring. This is when you really say something to your teammates. This is when you really show your character.“Obviously, I’ve got to do a better job as head coach, making sure we’re prepared to play, making sure we’re ready to play the right way. Making sure that guys who aren’t, are held accountable. And making sure that we get the right guys on the ice.”St. Louis can take some encouragement knowing that both Toronto losses came at home.The game will also be a homecoming for former Maple Leafs center Tyler Bozak, who signed as a free agent with the Blues on July 1. He has one goal and one assist in six games this season.“He’s a real good hockey player, real good hockey sense, real good faceoff guy, good in the power play,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said Friday at practice. “I thought his last year here was his best in the three years that I had him and obviously he’ll be an important part for them.”Bozak played between Pat Maroon and Alexander Steen for the first time in Montreal and that line could remain intact for the game Saturday. They line combined for eight shots on goal.In a Thursday practice in Toronto, two-time All-Star defenseman Jay Bouwmeester was used on the fourth pairing with Jakub Jerabek, leading to speculation that he might not play against the Maple Leafs.“Obviously, we’re considering everything right now,” Yeo said. “Again Adidas Authentic Devin Shore Jersey Premier Womens Youth Big&Tall Dallas Stars NHL Shop Free Shipping , the results that we’re getting, we have to consider everything.”Bouwmeester, 35, was limited to 35 games last season because of a fractured ankle and a hip injury that resulted in surgery.The Maple Leafs, meanwhile, had more than a winning streak stopped Thursday. Center Auston Matthews had at least two points in each of the first seven games until Thursday when the Maple Leafs were shut out for the first time this season. He has 10 goals and six assists despite being without a goal in his past two games.One of the keys to the Penguins’ success Thursday was that they kept the Maple Leafs on the outside, limiting close-in chances so that many of Toronto’s 38 shots (Pittsburgh took 39) were not dangerous.“I think there are a lot of things that we can improve on,” Matthews said. “It seems like they were just calm, cool, collected out there. They didn’t run around, they just played smart and didn’t force anything and made plays. It seemed like they had us running around quite a bit.”The Maple Leafs were in it until the Penguins scored twice on an empty net.“I think we’ve got to do a little better just sustaining some of the momentum we create,” Tavares said. NEW YORK — The season is just two games old, but it has already been a transitional one for the New York Islanders and their new head coach, Barry Trotz. The adaptation process will continue Monday afternoon, when Robin Lehner makes his first start for the Islanders in a Columbus Day matinee against the San Jose Sharks at Barclays Center.It will be the third game of the season for both teams. The Islanders dropped their home opener Saturday, when they fell to the Nashville Predators, 4-3. Article continues below ...The Sharks last played Friday, when they earned a 3-2 overtime win over the host Los Angeles Kings.The narrow defeat for the Islanders on Saturday left Trotz — who coached the Washington Capitals to the team’s first Stanley Cup last spring — in the unfamiliar position of trying to find positives in a loss. New York Womens Esa Lindell Jersey , which allowed the most goals in the NHL last season (296) and lost star John Tavares to the Toronto Maple Leafs as a free agent in July, followed up a 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday by keeping the Western Conference powerhouse Predators off the scoreboard in the third period.“I thought we had some pretty good stretches,” Trotz told reporters afterward. “Our overall game, I thought we were pretty good. I thought we handled their speed well. I thought we managed the puck a lot better than we did in Carolina.”The Sharks also felt good about themselves following the adjustments they made against the Kings, whom they limited to one goal over the final two periods and overtime while getting their first win when New York native Kevin Labanc scored 2:54 into the extra period.“I thought the third period we really pressed, and I thought we were the better team in the third,” said Sharks head coach Peter DeBoer, whose squad outshot the Kings 12-5 in the third period and overtime. “The guys played as if we needed to win this game and we found a way to do it.”Trotz said following practice Sunday that Lehner, who signed with the Islanders in July following three seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, would draw the start Monday. It will be the first regular season game for Lehner since he entered alcohol rehab and began receiving treatment for bipolar disorder last spring.“I feel I’m ready to play,” Lehner told reporters Sunday. “There are still a few things we’re working on. We’re changing a few things I’ve been doing my whole life. That’s not an overnight thing.”Lehner is 0-4-0 in four career appearances against the Sharks.Martin Jones is likely to draw his third straight start for the Sharks. Jones is 1-0-0 in two career games against the Islanders.The Sharks will be without veteran center Joe Thornton, who was placed on injured reserve with an undisclosed injury Sunday. To replace Thornton on the active roster, San Jose recalled center Dylan Gambrell from its AHL affiliate.The Islanders will be hosting a Western Conference foe on Columbus Day afternoon for the third time in four seasons since moving to Barclays Center. New York suffered a 3-2 shootout loss to the St. Louis Blues last season and beat the Winnipeg Jets, 4-2, in 2015.

    Oscar Klefbom Jersey

    LAS VEGAS (AP) Their story had been too good Authentic Connor McDavid Jersey Fanatics Branded: New Adidas Breakaway Womens Youth Edmonton Oilers NHL Jerseys , their season way too magical.Then the script was suddenly flipped. And the storybook ending the Vegas Golden Knights had desperately hoped for became a story of another kind for the Washington Capitals.Two goals in the third period gave the Caps their first Stanley Cup title, ending 43 years of futility and sending a surprisingly large contingent of red-clad Washington fans into a frenzy. They stood and cheered as the Caps passed the Stanley Cup around, enjoying a scene that up to now no Las Vegas tourist had ever imagined.A few minutes earlier, thousands of Knights fans were on their feet cheering for their team. The game was over, but ”Go Knights Go” reverberated through the arena on the Las Vegas Strip.Both teams had something to celebrate. But only Washington would be drinking out of the Stanley Cup.”When you get this close to the cup it’s hard,” Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. ”It doesn’t happen too often. It’s very disappointing.”An inaugural season like no other ended on a bittersweet note for an expansion team like no other. The first major sports team in this gambling city bucked the odds until the end, but in the end this was Washington’s championship to win.It was the Caps who won every playoff series coming from behind. It was the Caps who found a way to win in the third period when things seemed to be going the Knights way.”We got angry and mean,” Washington coach Barry Trotz said. ”Even when they got an extra timeout when the clock broke our guys were like, we got this. There’s not a chance they will score.”It was the Knights, though, who bonded with a city and thrilled fans who before October began knew little more about hockey than it was the fastest game on ice.They played into June, this collection of Golden Misfits, something no one could have imagined for a team that barely had any players a year ago. The temperature outside was close to 100 degrees for Game 5 but hockey worked in the desert and it worked in a city where you don’t have to go far to place a bet on the team.And the bet is that this is a franchise that won’t have to wait 43 years to raise a Stanley Cup of its own.”We came up short but I’m sure in a few days we’ll come up with a lot of positives about the season,” defenseman Deryk Engelland said. ”Right now it’s the worst feeling ever. You never want to lose any game Milan Lucic Jersey Kids , but especially at this point.”A season that began somberly in the wake of the massacre of 58 people just down the street from the T-Mobile Arena ended 102 games later with a community continuing to heal and a team that far exceeded expectations on and off the ice.It was Engelland who stood before the crowd at the first home game and told them, ”We are Vegas strong,” a message that carried over on the ice. The Knights won their division, and were 12-3 in the playoffs coming into the Final, confounding the hockey experts at every turn.When they won the first game of the series it looked like the tale of an expansion team and its city would soar to new levels. But the Caps came back to win four straight, including the 4-3 win that capped off their own improbable run.”No one gave us a chance from the start,” said forward David Perron. ”I thought when I got picked in the draft that Vegas would be a fun place to be but the team wouldn’t do much. It’s been a great ride.”While the Capitals were enjoying a lengthy postgame celebration on the ice, the Knights filtered through a somber locker room, talking softly about great times and a painful ending. On the verge of doing something historic, they lost their way and the price to pay for it was another team passing the Cup around on their ice.”It was a phenomenal year and in a couple days we’ll think about that,” Knights coach Gerard Gallant said. ”Every day was fun for us.”A magical season, yes. But it also won’t be long before the reality sinks in that teams just don’t get to the Stanley Cup Final every year.All the Knights had to do was look at the team celebrating on the ice to understand that.—-Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press. Write to him at tdahlberg(at)ap.org or http://twitter.com/timdahlberg BOSTON (AP) Two of Boston’s new additions helped the Bruins avoid their first three-game losing streak of the season.Rick Nash scored in his home debut and Tommy Wingels had a goal and an assist in his first game for the Bruins, who rallied from a 3-1 deficit to beat the Carolina Hurricanes 4-3 on Charlie McAvoy’s goal 1:08 into overtime Tuesday night.”The first period was rough,” said Nash Oscar Klefbom Jersey , acquired Sunday in a trade with the New York Rangers. ”We stayed with it and we battled back. It was a big two points after being down two.”The Nash trade was the headliner in Boston as the Bruins bolstered their lineup for a postseason run. They also picked up Wingels on Monday in a deadline deal with Chicago that didn’t get nearly as much attention, but it added some much-needed depth at center with leading goal-scorer Patrice Bergeron out with a broken foot.Wingels assisted on Riley Nash’s goal with three seconds left in the first period to pull Boston to 3-2, then tied it 5:34 into the second with his first goal as a member of the Bruins.”At this point of the season, you don’t have time to wade your way into it. You have to be ready to go from the get-go,” Wingels said. ”If you get traded, this is the kind of place you want to go to. It’s a hungry team, a team that’s capable of winning it all.”The Bruins, coming off back-to-back losses for just the second time this season, didn’t look much like a contender in the first period.”As the game went on I thought we started to establish ourselves again and put them on their heels and make them defend more and more,” said Riley Nash, who helped set up McAvoy’s game-winner by beating a pair of Carolina players in a corner battle for the puck.He got the puck out of the corner and started Brad Marchand and McAvoy on a 2-on-1. McAvoy ended it with a wrist shot past goalie Scott Darling.”They’re where they are in the standings for a reason,” said Carolina captain Justin Faulk, who had two assists. ”It was tight, obviously Authentic Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Jersey Fanatics Branded: New Adidas Breakaway Womens Youth Edmonton Oilers NHL Jerseys , and we just weren’t able to get enough.”Brock McGinn, Teuvo Teravainen and Sebastian Aho scored for Carolina in the first. Darling stopped 28 shots for the Hurricanes, who are 0-5-1 in their last six games and have been outscored 24-9 during the skid.Tuukka Rask made 29 saves for the Bruins.Rick Nash got his first goal for Boston at 11:41 of the first to tie it 1-all after McGinn’s power-play goal 10:01 into the game gave Carolina an early lead.Boston fans were still celebrating seven seconds later when David Pastrnak received a double-minor for a high stick to the face of Joakim Nordstrom, who stayed down at center ice for several minutes as the Carolina training staff attended to him.Pastrnak was still serving the first penalty when Teravainen beat Rask with a wrist shot at 13:09.Aho put Carolina up 3-1 with 56 seconds left in the first, slipping the puck between Rask’s legs off a pass from Teravainen.”We got one in the last minute, they got one in the last minute,” Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. ”It would’ve been nice to come into the room with a two-goal lead. It’s not the way it unfolded.”NOTES: Bergeron is expected to miss two weeks or more. He played Sunday in a 4-1 loss at Buffalo despite the fracture, which occurred Saturday when he blocked a shot in a loss at Toronto. Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said a CT scan showed the fracture that didn’t appear on an X-ray when Bergeron’s foot was initially examined. Bergeron will be evaluated in two weeks. … Carolina C Jordan Staal missed his third straight game. Staal’s infant daughter, Hannah, died on Saturday. … McGinn’s goal was his first since he scored against Colorado on Feb. 10. … Faulk snapped a five-game scoreless streak.UP NEXTHurricanes: At the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.Bruins: Host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night.—

    Gabriel Landeskog Jersey Kids

    Willie O’Ree didn’t know he had broken the NHL’s color barrier when he made his debut in 1958. Martin Brodeur couldn’t see the three Stanley Cup titles and jaw-dropping career ahead when he played his first game in goal for the New Jersey Devils in 1992 and Tyler Seguin Jersey , a year later, Gary Bettman didn’t know he would end up growing the league by leaps and bounds over the next 25 years as its commissioner.All three will go into the Hockey Hall of Fame together as the headliners of a trailblazing class of 2018 that also includes diminutive forward Martin St. Louis, four-time gold-medal-winning Canadian women’s national team star Jayna Hefford and Russian Alexander Yakushev.O’Ree was the first black player in the NHL, Bettman has overseen the league’s expansion into a multibillion-dollar industry and Brodeur piled up the most wins and shutouts of any goaltender in NHL history.”This is an exciting class to be around because everyone has tried to take their game to the next level,” Bettman said Tuesday. ”I really wasn’t focused on whether this was happening now; I was really focused on whether Willie O’Ree was going to be selected because that to me was a very important act for the Hall to take.”Bettman has been commissioner since 1993, during which time the NHL has expanded its footprint across North America and increased from 24 to 31 teams. In that time, the league has gone from a $437 million business to one with almost $5 billion in revenue. It’s been an occasionally bruising ride, with three work stoppages, including one that canceled the entire 2004-05 season and led to the salary cap. But Bettman has been nothing if not a strong leader, and all-time great Wayne Gretzky said the efforts to help each club compete have made the game stronger.”His leadership and love for hockey is very evident,” Gretzky said. ”Hockey has become more entertaining year after year, thanks in part to his passion for the game.”Brodeur lifted the Stanley Cup three times with the Devils between 1995 and 2003. He leads all goalies with 691 wins and 125 shutouts in 1,266 regular-season games with the Devils and St. Louis Blues, and he won the Vezina Trophy four times. He won 113 playoff games and had a 2.02 postseason goals-against average. Brodeur also scored two regular-season goals and another in the playoffs – more than any other goalie.The Montreal native was the last real standup goaltender as the position moved almost exclusively to the butterfly technique, and his puck-handling prowess led the NHL to institute the trapezoid behind the net as a way to increase scoring.”You play your whole career and you don’t expect to get this phone call, but when it does, it definitely does feel pretty good,” said Brodeur, the Blues assistant GM who was sitting alongside Hall of Fame defenseman Larry Robinson at prospect camp in St. Louis when he got the news. ”I want to thank the committee for putting me on so early.”While Brodeur and St. Louis were first-ballot selections, O’Ree had been waiting decades for this honor since making history at the Montreal Forum on Jan. 18 Adidas Authentic Alexander Kerfoot Jersey Premier Womens Youth Big&Tall Colorado Avalanche NHL Shop Free Shipping , 1958, with the Boston Bruins. He was 32.A native of Fredericton, New Brunswick, in Eastern Canada, O’Ree finished with four goals and 10 assists in 45 NHL games during the 1957-58 and 1960-61 seasons despite being 95 percent blind in his right eye. O’Ree was the first black player in the NHL but he will be the third inducted into the Hall of Fame, joining Edmonton Oilers goalie Grant Fuhr and Canadian women’s national team captain Angela James.”Willie paved the path for the rest of us,” Fuhr said. ”In that way he is a true builder of the game. If you look up the word `builder,’ there should be a picture of Willie. He is the Jackie Robinson of hockey.”Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs said O’Ree receiving this honor was long overdue, adding ”Willie has been a tremendous figure in our game both on and off the ice for over 60 years.”Now 82, O’Ree works for the NHL as diversity ambassador, helping with its ”Hockey is for Everyone” initiative. There are now about two dozen black players currently on NHL rosters.”I knew that there were going to be more black players not only playing pro but eventually getting into the National Hockey League,” O’Ree said. ”Now there’s 31 teams in the league and you can see that the black players and the players of color that are playing there, they’re there because they have the skills and the ability to be in the league.”St. Louis was a 5-foot-8 winger who put up 1,033 points in 1,134 regular-season games over 17 seasons, winning the Cup with Tampa Bay in 2004 and an Olympic gold medal with Canada in 2014.”When people tried to discourage me along the way, that’s just life,” St. Louis said. ”I definitely used that as a motivation in trying to prove people wrong.”Hefford won four Olympic gold medals and seven world championships, putting up 30 points in 26 Olympic games. She said the honor was more emotional than some of her medals because she could share it with so many family members, friends and teammates.Yakushev became known to North American hockey fans during the 1972 Summit Series between Canada and the Soviet Union Womens Carl Soderberg Jersey , with 11 points in eight games. He also won Olympic gold medals in 1972 and 1976.Hall chairmen Lanny McDonald and John Davidson reached Yakushev in Russia, right after he had come off the ice after playing a game at the age of 71.”He was not only thrilled (but) when I asked him if he won the game he said, `Yes we won, I’m still playing, this is the best day ever,”’ McDonald said.— NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Working overtime is becoming commonplace in Nashville.Filip Forsberg scored on a penalty shot at 1:19 of overtime to give the Predators a wild 4-3 comeback victory over the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night.After trailing by three goals entering the third period, Nashville rallied for three goals in the span of 6:42 to tie it and force overtime.In overtime, a Kyle Turris pass sent Forsberg in on a breakaway, and he was tripped from behind by Jaden Schwartz in front of the St. Louis goal and he was awarded a penalty shot.On his attempt, Forsberg skated to the left side before cutting toward the slot, where he snapped a wrist shot past Blues goaltender Carter Hutton on the glove side just inside the post to win it.”We obviously gave ourselves a big hole against a good team and now we see what happens when we don’t play, and we also see what happens when we do play,” Forsberg said. ”We’ll learn from both things.”Hutton, a former Predator, made 29 saves. He doesn’t think this loss will stick with him.”I’m pretty good at moving on,” Hutton said. ”They brought me in here to back up, and I’ve been playing a lot more minutes and I think I’ve been rock-solid all year. In my eyes, I just came into a tough building and got a point and I move on to the next game.”Austin Watson scored twice and Calle Jarnkrok also scored for Nashville.Alexander Steen scored a goal and added an assist and Jay Bouwmeester and Schwartz also scored for the Blues who have lost two in a row. Vladimir Tarasenko had a pair of assists.Nashville played its first home game after coming off of a four-game road trip where all four games extended into overtime.”You’ve got to give the players a ton of credit because in those situations, especially coming off that long road trip and travel that we had Gabriel Landeskog Jersey Kids , it’d be easy just to fold on the game and look forward to tomorrow,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. ”They didn’t. They fought for it.”Bouwmeester scored the game’s first goal at 15:08 of the opening period.On a delayed penalty to the Predators, Bouwmeester carried the puck across the Nashville blue line and fired a slap shot from above the left faceoff circle low to the stick side of Predators goaltender Pekka Rinne.Rinne finished with 28 saves.Steen made it 2-0 at 3:10 of the second.Tarasenko carried the puck in on the right side on a 3-on-2. He fed Paul Stastny in the slot, where his backhand attempt was knocked down by Rinne, but Steen skated through the slot and buried the rebound.Schwartz tallied on the power play at the 9-minute mark of the second, converting a rebound of a Steen shot attempt.Hutton spent three seasons as Rinne’s backup in Nashville before signing with the Blues in the summer of 2016.He was sharp early, turning away all 13 Nashville shots in the first.Following a sleepy second where Nashville only managed three shots on the St. Louis goal, Jarnkrok got Nashville on the board at 12:06 of the third, collecting the rebound of Swedish countryman Mattias Ekholm’s shot from the right point and beating Hutton.”Obviously, they had a push, we knew they would,” St. Louis coach Mike Yeo said. ”We talked about it between the second and third, making sure that we dictated in terms of pace and direction. I felt that we just absorbed a little bit too much there.”Watson’s shorthanded goal at 14:33 of the third drew Nashville to within a goal and he tied it 1:15 later finishing off a 2-on-1 with Craig Smith.”I don’t think there’s a recipe for that other than just continuing to work and not getting discouraged,” Watson said. ”We were frustrated by the effort that we put out for the first two periods, but this group never backs off and never just gives up. We kept pushing, were able to get a couple to go for us and tie up, and Fil had a great penalty shot in overtime.”NOTES: New Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel attended the game. … Nashville was 0-3 on the power play in the game. They have not scored on the man-advantage in their last five games. … Tarasenko played his 400th career NHL game. … The Blues are 18-0-2 when leading after the first period this season.UP NEXT:Blues: Visit Dallas Friday.Predators: Host Calgary Thursday.

    Youth Kevin Labanc Jersey

    DENVER (AP) The game had a postseason intensity. So Gabriel Landeskog of course brought out his best shot – even if he might’ve had his eyes closed when he took it.A capacity crowd certainly let him know the result.The Colorado captain beat Marc Andre-Fleury with a nifty move in the shootout and the Avalanche kept expansion Vegas from clinching a playoff spot on their home ice by beating the Golden Knights 2-1 on Saturday.”It was a lot of fun and the crowd was incredible Joonas Donskoi Jersey ,” said Landeskog, who explained that on his winning tally he came in from an angle on Fleury, cut toward the middle and shot the puck with his eyes shut. ”(Fleury) made some nice saves on me during the game. It was nice to get that one back.”Semyon Varlamov stopped all three shots in the shootout. He finished with 39 saves, including seven in overtime.This after allowing five goals and being pulled in a 7-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings two days ago.Short memories this time of year.”I knew we were going to come and play hard and respond,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. ”Doesn’t always guarantee you the victory – there’s another good team that’s trying to win the hockey game, too. It was a close one right down to the shootout.”Carl Soderberg was back on the ice after missing two games with an illness and contributed with a first-period goal. Colorado remains in the thick of the playoff picture as the team picked up its 26th home win, which is tied for the third-most in Avalanche history.The Pacific Division-leading Golden Knights are on the doorstep of earning their playoff spot. They were kept in this game thanks to the play of Fleury, who was back in the net after sustaining an undisclosed injury Tuesday. Fleury made 29 saves.”We had moments when I thought the puck would go in, but somehow he stopped the shots. He’d make that big save,” Varlamov said of Fleury. ”That’s why he’s different than anybody else. In a key moment, he can make that save.”Jonathan Marchessault tied the game early in the third, moments after Fleury made an incredible save with his right leg.It would be a familiar trend.The play of the game may have been this: Blake Comeau had a breakaway in the third as he tried to corral the puck near center ice. Fleury came all the way out to disrupt Comeau, who side-stepped Fleury’s stick only to tumble to the ice and not be able to knock it into the wide-open net.In overtime, Fleury also stopped Erik Johnson on a breakaway.”He was awesome,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. ”He made some great saves tonight. That wasn’t a 1-1 hockey game. That was like a 5-4 hockey game. I thought both goalies were really good.”Fleury recently had some fun with reporters who asked about what happened Tuesday when he left the game for an undisclosed reason (he also didn’t play Thursday). Fleury joked it was a chance to catch up on his favorite soap opera, ”Days of our Lives.”All kidding aside, he said he was ”back to normal. It felt good to be back with the boys again.”The two teams turn around and play in Vegas on Monday.”The atmosphere was good. It was such a close game, on both sides,” Fleury said. ”It was exciting to be part of, but disappointing to come out on the losing side.”Varlamov was in net for a 20th straight game as backup Jonathan Bernier was sidelined by a cut that became infected. Bernier’s also missed time this season with a concussion.Soderberg gave Colorado an early lead by lifting a shot over the shoulder of Fleury for a power-play goal midway through the opening period.”It was a good hockey game,” Bednar said. ”That was a fun hockey game.”NOTES: Team USA goaltender Nicole Hensley was honored before the game and given an Avalanche sweater. She helped the U.S. bring home the gold medal at the Pyeongchang Games. … D Mark Alt made his Avalanche debut after being claimed off waivers from Philadelphia on Feb. 26. … RW Sven Andrighetto and C Colin Wilson are day-to-day with lower-body injuries.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Begin a four-game homestand Monday against Colorado.Avalanche: Travel to Vegas on Monday before hosting two straight games at home.— ANNAPOLIS Justin Braun Jersey Kids , Md. (AP) William Nylander fondly recalls messing around on the ice with Alex Ovechkin as an 11-year-old when his dad, Michael, played for the Washington Capitals.”I have some good memories,” Nylander said.Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom remembers those days, too. It was a decade ago when he, Ovechkin and Washington’s ”Young Guns” looked like a powerhouse that could win the Stanley Cup multiple times and dominate the NHL for years to come. The Capitals beat Nylander and the Toronto Maple Leafs last spring in their ninth playoff appearance in 10 years but have yet to advance past the second round.As the Maple Leafs and Capitals meet outdoors at the U.S. Naval Academy on Saturday night, they’re both legitimate contenders but look like teams going in opposite directions in the near future. Toronto is at the start of its championship window and Washington appears on the edge of running out of time.Like the Capitals had Ovechkin, Backstrom, Alex Semin and Mike Green, the Maple Leafs have their own young stars in Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner and Nylander.There are plenty of similarities.”It was a lot of excitement around the team when we were at that age. I’m sure they’re feeling the same,” Backstrom said. Asked if there was less stress in that position, he added: ”Yeah, but actually time flies. They’ve got to enjoy every moment.”The Metropolitan Division-leading Capitals are headed back to the playoffs and with Ovechkin, Backstrom and goaltender Braden Holtby still have the potential to lift the Cup this June. But after the salary cap necessitated roster changes after two consecutive Presidents’ Trophy-winning seasons, they don’t have quite the external pressure as a Cup favorite.”You’ve just got to get in,” coach Barry Trotz said. ”If you get in and you’ve got everybody playing at the top of their game at the same time, you’ve got a chance.”Toronto certainly has a shot without the pressure as Matthews and Marner are just 20, while Nylander is 21. The Maple Leafs’ young stars are as excited as Ovechkin and Backstrom were when they were beginning their NHL journeys but fully understand – perhaps from seeing the Capitals’ regular-season success and playoff losses – that talent doesn’t magically turn into championships. Veteran general manager Lou Lamoriello augmented his young core with 38-year-old leader Patrick Marleau and Cup-winning defenseman Ron Hainsey in the offseason, and acquired center Tomas Plekanec at the trade deadline.There has also been the natural progression of the three young stars.”I just think we’re significantly better because our young guys are better,” said coach Mike Babcock Youth Kevin Labanc Jersey , who won the Cup with Detroit in 2003 and is signed through the 2022-23 season. ”They’ve been through it more. They’ve seen what it’s like. They’ve been eliminated from the playoffs. They know right away here you get in the playoffs and then 10 days later one of you is moving on and one of you goes home.”Almost immediately after the playoff exit, Maple Leafs players tried to rationalize it as growing pains. Now looking down on the Capitals in the Eastern Conference standings, the Maple Leafs can feel the progress with their next playoff trip a month away.”It just motivates you,” 23-year-old defenseman Morgan Rielly said. ”Even though we didn’t win the series, I think that we proved to ourselves that we can play with those high-end teams, and I think that moving forward we have to believe in ourselves.”Marleau, who rode the roller coaster of Cup contention in 19 seasons with the San Jose Sharks that included just one trip to the final in 2016, said the belief is always there no matter the external expectations.”When you’re in the locker room, when you’re with the guys, you always believe in them and you always think you have a chance of winning,” Marleau said. ”You’ve got to put in the work and put yourself in the right spots to succeed and then when it comes playoff time, crunch time, you know you’ve got to have some luck and some bounces here and there.”Washington might be a few bounces away from its own dynasty – a save on Ovechkin early in Game 7 against the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009, several stops by Jaroslav Halak in 2010 and an empty net against the Rangers in 2015. That’s just reality in a sport so full of parity.The same thing could surely happen to the Maple Leafs. Amid all the potential and excitement surrounding his group, Babcock knows it.”Don’t get me wrong, we’re still going to have lots of highs and lots of crushing lows,” he said. ”That’s just part of being on a good team. But you want to set yourself up for as many opportunities as you can possibly have, and I think we’re going in the right direction that way.”

    Alex Ovechkin Jersey Kids

    CHICAGO (AP) Scott Foster thought it was going to be just another night. Then the 36-year-old accountant signed a contract Reilly Smith Jersey , put on his goaltender gear and waited in Chicago’s locker room. Then he got into the game.Then it was his night.Foster was pressed into action when Chicago lost Anton Forsberg and Collin Delia to injuries, and the former college goalie stopped all seven shots he faced over the final 14 minutes of the Blackhawks‘ 6-2 victory over the playoff-bound Winnipeg Jets on Thursday.”This is something that no one can ever take away from me,” Foster said. ”It’s something that I can go home and tell my kids and they can tell their friends. … Just a ton of fun.”Foster is part of a crew of recreational goaltenders who staff Chicago’s home games in case of emergencies for either team. But it usually just means a nice dinner and a night in the press box watching the world’s best players compete at hockey’s highest level.Nothing at all like this.”What a moment,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said with a chuckle.Forsberg was expected to start, but he got hurt during a ”pregame ritual,” according to Quenneville. Delia, who was just recalled from the minors Wednesday, then stopped 25 of 27 shots in his NHL debut before he was helped off the ice with 14:01 left after he cramped up.Enter Foster, a married father of two who lives in nearby Oak Park and plays in two rec leagues. After a short warmup, the game resumed and Foster got a big cheer from the crowd of 21,839 when he denied Tyler Myers for his first save about a minute after he came in.”The initial shock happened when I had to dress. I think you just kind of black out after that,” Foster said.Backed by chants of ”Foster! Foster!” and more loud ovations, he made another stop on Myers and turned away Paul Stastny and Dustin Byfuglien in the final minutes. When it was over, the Blackhawks poured onto the ice and mobbed Foster in the net.”He was great,” defenseman Brent Seabrook said. ”I think the boys were doing whatever they could to help him out. He made some big saves. Fun night.”The Jets had won six in a row and were trying to clinch home-ice advantage for the first round of the playoffs. But even they were moved by what happened.”It’s tough for anybody to come in 50 minutes into a hockey game Tomas Tatar Jersey , let alone a guy who hasn’t played in the (NHL),” coach Paul Maurice said. ”A great moment for him.”Carolina Hurricanes equipment manager Jorge Alves became the first emergency goalie to play in a game in the modern era last season. He closed out the final 7.6 seconds of a 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay.The NHL adjusted its rules last summer to mandate that teams have an emergency goalie present for all home games ready to fill in for either team – setting the stage for Foster’s most competitive action since 20 minutes in relief with Western Michigan University in the 2005-06 season.”A few hours ago I was sitting on the computer typing on a 10-key, and now I’m standing in front of you guys having just finished 14 1/2 minutes of NHL hockey,” he cracked.It was a wild finish to one of Chicago’s best performances in a lousy season.Tomas Jurco scored a career-high two goals in Seabrook’s 1,000th regular-season game, and touted prospect Dylan Sikura had two assists in his NHL debut. Patrick Kane, Alex DeBrincat and defenseman Erik Gustafsson each had a goal and an assist, and Brandon Saad also scored.The 32-year-old Seabrook got the start alongside fellow alternate captain and frequent defensive partner Duncan Keith. He became the fifth player in franchise history to skate in 1,000 or more games for the team, joining Stan Mikita, Bobby Hull, Eric Nesterenko and Bob Murray.Bryan Little scored his 200th NHL goal for Winnipeg in the opener of a four-game trip. Mark Scheifele also scored for the Jets, and Eric Comrie made 36 saves while subbing for starter Connor Hellebuyck.”It wasn’t a good night,” Little said. ”It wasn’t good from the start. It’s one of those games you want to forget and put behind you and look to the next one.”Kane got Chicago off to a fast start when he shot it between Comrie’s legs for his 27th goal 3:44 into the first, and the Blackhawks just poured it on from there. Saad made it 2-0 with a nifty move to his backhand in front at 17:17.Jurco added two goals in the second before Little got Winnipeg on the board with his 16th of the season at 14:24. But Gustafsson responded for the Blackhawks William Karlsson Jersey , scoring on a nice rush to the net at 17:27.NOTES: Quenneville said Delia was going to travel with the team to Colorado and should be fine for Friday night’s game against the Avalanche.

    TORONTO (AP) — The play of Thomas Chabot might help the Ottawa Senators get over the loss of Erik Karlsson.Chabot had two goals and an assist Womens Mike Reilly Jersey , Craig Anderson made 34 saves, and the Senators defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-3 on Saturday night.Dylan DeMelo and Chris Tierney, who were among the players acquired from the San Jose Sharks in a trade for Karlsson, also scored for Ottawa. Mark Stone added an empty-net goal with 24.3 seconds left.Zack Smith chipped in with two assists for the rebuilding Senators, who have looked good with their young roster through two games and a 1-0-1 start.The Senators are a franchise in the midst of a rebuild after a number of off-ice issues and the trading of Karlsson, their captain and star defenseman, in a six-player swap on the eve of training camp.“You saw the offense … the ceiling’s high,” Ottawa head coach Guy Boucher said of Chabot. “He’s going to become just as good defensively over time.“I have so much faith in him.”Chabot played 63 games with the Senators last season after failing to make the club out of training camp before finishing his rookie campaign with nine goals and 16 assists.“Usually a defenseman gets into his prime around 23, 24,” he said of being thrust into top-pair duty minutes following the Karlsson deal. “It’s earlier than we expected.“I’m just trying to take advantage of every opportunity.”Mitch Marner, Auston Matthews and Morgan Rielly each had a goal and an assist for Toronto, which has a win and a loss in a wobbly start to the season.Frederik Andersen stopped 19 shots for the Leafs.“If you’re going to be 1-1, probably should have won tonight and lost against Montreal,” Toronto head coach Mike Babcock said. “We didn’t capitalize around the net tonight like we probably could have.”Chabot snapped a 3-3 tie with his second goal of the game at 1:42 of the third period, sliding the puck through the skates of Toronto rookie Igor Ozhiganov off the rush before beating Andersen.Ottawa’s Anderson made a nice stop on a Connor Brown deflection with 9:24 left in regulation to keep his team ahead on just the fourth shot of the period by Toronto.The Senators nearly went ahead by two a couple minutes later, but Andersen was there to block Smith’s shot from close range after the Leafs failed to get the puck out.Toronto made an expected late push and pulled Andersen with three minutes to go, but the Leafs couldn’t find an equalizer.Ottawa led 1-0 after the first period Womens Paul Byron Jersey , but Toronto struck early in the second to take a 2-1 lead. Rielly got things started 29 seconds in, taking a feed from Marner before Matthews scored his third of the season at 1:10.The Senators evened the score at 3:49, when Chabot stepped around Tyler Ennis at the point and took advantage of some sloppy Leafs coverage to pick up his own rebound and beat Andersen.Just 38 seconds later, Tierney got behind Toronto’s defense and beat Andersen between the pads for the Senators’ third goal on nine shots.Andersen stopped Patrick Marleau to keep his team in front with a great pad save later in the period, but Marner raced between Ottawa defensemen Cody Ceci and Mark Borowiecki on the power play before faking the Senators goalie to the ice and sliding a shot home with less than two minutes left in the period to make it 3-3.Toronto beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 in overtime to open the season on Wednesday — a disjointed effort in which Leafs were stuck in their own zone for long stretches.Ottawa, meanwhile, opened its season with a 4-3 overtime win over the Chicago Blackhawks in a game in which the Senators led 3-2 in the third on Thursday.The Leafs got the better start they wanted Saturday, with Marner, Marleau and John Tavares all coming close early, but it was the Senators that took the lead at 9:42 of the first.Chabot’s pass from the left corner in the offensive zone went off Smith’s stick to DeMelo, who beat Andersen along the ice to snap a personal 87-game goal drought that dated back to Nov. 26, 2016.Marner had a chance to tie it with 5:47 left in the period on a penalty shot after getting slashed on a breakaway by Chris Wideman, but Anderson made a right pad save.“The younger guys did a great job,” Boucher said. “And the older guys did a terrific job of anchoring them.”NOTES: Ottawa winger Brady Tkachuk sat out with a groin injury for the second straight game. Head coach Guy Boucher said after the morning skate he’s hopeful the No. 4 pick in the June draft will be available to make his NHL debut Monday when the Senators visit the Boston Bruins. … Backup goalie Garret Sparks is expected to start for Toronto on Sunday night in Chicago.NEXT UPMaple Leafs: Visit the Chicago Blackhawks on SundaySenators: Visit the Boston Bruins on Monday PHILADELPHIA (AP) Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds will be out for 2-to-3 weeks after suffering an upper-body injury in Sunday’s win over the New York Rangers.Simmonds has 20 goals and 37 points in 59 games this season for Philadelphia, which hosted Montreal on Tuesday night. He was involved in a first-period tussle in Sunday’s game and landed a fight-ending left hand to the side of Tony DeAngelo’s helmet.Simmonds joins a growing list of injured Flyers. Starting goalie Brian Elliott had surgery Feb. 13 for a core muscle injury and is expected to miss up to five more weeks. Backup Michal Neuvirth will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks after suffering a lower body injury in Sunday’s game.Article continues below ...Philadelphia acquired goalie Petr Mrazek from Detroit on Monday night for a pair of draft picks to fill the void.
