NEW YORK (AP) — The victory-starved Florida Panthers made the most of a power-play in overtime against the New York Islanders.Mike Hoffman scored with the man advantage 33 seconds into the extra period Adidas Jordan Schroeder Jersey , lifting the Panthers to a 3-2 win over the Islanders on Wednesday night.The winning goal was the fourth of the season for Hoffman and was assisted by defenseman Keith Yandle and captain Aleksander Barkov. The Panthers, who have two wins in eight games this season, improved to 6-1-0 in their last seven road games against the Islanders.“Specialty teams are huge nowadays. Any of the top teams in the league will have good specialty teams,” said Hoffman, the former Ottawa Senator who was acquired in a trade involving San Jose before the season. “To get two on the power play tonight definitely had a big part in us getting the two points.”The Panthers won for just the second time in eight games this season. Backup goaltender James Reimer made 20 saves in his first win of the year.“As a team, we just kept battling and kept fighting and finally we were rewarded,” Reimer said. “We just needed to stick with it. There’s no magic potion. You just have to keep doing your thing.”The Panthers were called for delay of game with just under three minutes left in regulation Adidas Chris Kunitz Jersey , but the Islanders wiped out that power play when center Mathew Barzal was sent off for interference at 18:35. That penalty led to the power-play chance in overtime and Hoffman’s goal that completed a three-goal rally by the Panthers.Frank Vatrano – also on the power play – and Evgenii Dadonov scored for the Panthers in the third period against Islanders goalie Robin Lehner, erasing a two-goal deficit.“They capitalized on the power play. They have some high-skill guys who made some plays,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. “We lost a special teams game tonight.”Brock Nelson and Jordan Eberle staked the Islanders to a 2-0 lead heading into the third period, but the Panthers then struck on the goals by Vatrano and Dadonov.Nelson opened the scoring late in the first with his third goal of the season at 18:36. Josh Bailey picked up the assist.Eberle increased the lead at 11:42 of the second against Reimer, finishing off a pretty passing sequence with his first goal of the season. Barzal and Anders Lee assisted.Last season’s Calder Trophy winner as the league’s top rookie, Barzal leads the Islanders with eight points through eight games.The Islanders were coming off a four-game road trip in which they lost three times. It was their first home game since Oct. 8, when they defeated the San Jose Sharks 4-0 when Lehner made 35 saves.The Panthers (2-3-3) finally broke through against Lehner at 2:46 of the third Adidas Brandon Manning Jersey , when Vatrano knocked in a rebound for his third goal of the season.Then, Dadonov scored his fourth goal at 10:35 to tie the game. Assists went to Barkov and MacKenzie Weggar.Florida was coming off a 5-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden.The Panthers will complete their metropolitan area visit with a game against the Devils in New Jersey on Saturday before heading to Finland for two games against the Winnipeg Jets.Florida’s previous victory was a 6-5 shootout win at Washington on Oct. 19.Lehner made 13 saves in each of the first two periods. He couldn’t get through the third unscathed, but did finish with 38 saves. The Swedish netminder joined the Islanders as a free agent over the summer after three seasons with the Buffalo Sabres.“I thought Robin was solid,” Trotz added. “We took a penalty and they capitalized at the end. We weren’t on our toes enough.”Yandle, who previously skated for the Arizona Coyotes and New York Rangers, played his 723rd consecutive game. He is 15 games from passing Jay Bouwmeester for sixth place in NHL history.“We’ll enjoy the two points tonight and hopefully this will give us some momentum,” Hoffman said.NOTES: The Islanders had a video tribute to Charles Wang Adidas Cam Ward Jersey , the team’s former majority owner who passed away at 74 last Sunday. … The Islanders announced their home game against Toronto on Feb. 28 — the return of former captain John Tavares — would be at Nassau Coliseum instead of Barclays Center in Brooklyn. … The Islanders visit the Panthers in Florida on Nov. 10 and April 4. … The Islanders scratched forwards Tom Kuhnhackl and Ross Johnston, plus defenseman Lucas Sbisa. … Florida scratched forward Derek MacKenzie and Denis Malgin, plus defenseman Mark Pysyk.UP NEXTIslanders: Visit Philadelphia on Saturday.Panthers: Visit New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

BOSTON (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets felt like they were lucky to get a victory in their late-season push for one of the Eastern Conference’s playoff spots.Cam Atkinson scored 2:55 into overtime to lift the Blue Jackets to a 5-4 comeback victory over Boston on Monday night for their eighth straight win http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authentic-nolan-patrick-jersey , spoiling a splendid NHL debut for Bruins forward Ryan Donato.”We stuck with it and that’s what good teams do,” Atkinson said. ”It wasn’t our prettiest by no means, but we found a way to get two huge points.”Sonny Milano, Boone Jenner, Thomas Vanek and Artemi Panarin also scored for the Blue Jackets. Nick Foligno and Ryan Murray had two assists, and Vanek and Jenner each added one. Joonas Korpisalo stopped 34 shots.Columbus moved into a tie with Philadelphia with 85 points, but the Flyers hold the tiebreaker for third place in the Metropolitan Division and the Blue Jackets hold the first wild card in the East. New Jersey,which has the second wild card, is three points behind.This one, though, may have been the Blue Jackets’ ugliest during the current run.”It just looked like as a whole group we didn’t seem to have our legs,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. ”The turnovers hurt us, we turned the puck over quite a bit. But give them credit http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authentic-travis-konecny-jersey , they just ended up finding a way.”Atkinson cut in on the left wing and fired a wrister past Tuukka Rask for the game-winner.”You see it, there’s no traffic in front of you, but there’s more clear-cut chances,” Rask said of the 3-on-3 overtime format. ”Even that goal there, it looks like he’s going high-stick, but it goes under my hand.”Donato had a goal and two assists for Boston, which moved a point behind idle Tampa Bay for first in the Atlantic. Riley Nash, Brad Marchand and David Krejci also scored for the Bruins, and Rask finished with 20 saves.”It kind of felt like a dream,” Donato said. ”I really didn’t really get too warmed up because I was focused everything else.”The Blue Jackets trailed by two late in the second period before scoring three consecutive goals to take a 4-3 lead.Just 25 seconds after Nash had given the Bruins a 3-1 lead, Milano redirected Ryan Murray’s slap-pass from the right point to pull Columbus within one with just over three minutes remaining in the middle period.Vanek tipped in a shot from the slot, tying it 5:38 into the third, and Panarin put the Blue Jackets ahead off a faceoff with 8:30 left in regulation.However Barrett Hayton Jersey Womens , Donato slipped a short pass from the right circle to Krejci, who got the tying goal 20 seconds later while falling to one knee.Jenner got Columbus on the scoreboard first when he redirected Vanek’s pass by Rask 4:15 into the game.The Bruins scored three straight goals in the second to take the lead. Marchand tied it with his team-leading 31st of the season when he got the puck at the end of a 2-on-1 break, shifted to his right and tucked it behind Korpisalo 5:41 into the middle period.Donato, a Hobey Baker Finalist after leading Harvard in scoring this season, pushed Boston ahead with a one-timer that slipped inside the near post from the right faceoff circle at 7:28.

Columbus won the only other meeting, 3-1 at home on Oct. 13.Bruins: At St. Louis on Thursday in the first of a four-game road trip. NEW YORK — The New York Rangers showed their toughness in earning another shootout win Saturday night. A stunning shootout loss earlier Saturday means the Vancouver Canucks will have another opportunity to display their resiliency on six-game Eastern Conference road trip.The Rangers will look to continue their recent surge, and the Canucks will hope to once again bounce back from a shootout defeat, when New York hosts Vancouver Monday night at Madison Square Garden.Both teams extended their points streak to six games Saturday.Article continues below ...The Rangers came back from a second-period deficit after blowing a two-goal lead and earned a 5-4 shootout win over the host Columbus Blue Jackets on Jimmy Vesey’s game-winner in the fifth round of the shootout. The visiting Canucks squandered a two-goal lead in the final three minutes of the third period and fell to the Buffalo Sabres in the shootout, 4-3.The Rangers (8-7-2) have won five of their last six (5-0-1) Michael Grabner Jersey Womens , a span in which they’ve won three times in the shootout. The six-game stretch has been eventful, but in posting four comeback wins and salvaging a point when it blew a two-goal lead in 3-2 overtime loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night, a rebuilding New York squad is proving it has a resourceful base.“I think it just shows a lot of mental strength that we have,” Rangers defenseman Neal Pionk told reporters Saturday night. “We’ve been through it before and I think we’re learning from it, growing from it.”The Canucks (10-6-2), who are 4-0-2 in their last six games and 1-0-2 on the road trip, absorbed a hard-earned lesson Saturday, when Jeff Skinner and Sam Reinhart forced overtime for the Sabres by scoring less than a minute apart in the waning moments of regulation.“We had our chances to put it away,” Canucks coach Travis Green told reporters afterward. “We had some decent efforts and some guys who just weren’t good.”It was the second time on the road trip the Canucks have blown a two-goal lead. Vancouver scored the first two goals against the Red Wings on Tuesday before falling in the shootout, 3-2.“You need to close it out, it’s that simple,” Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbranson told reporters Saturday afternoon. “That definitely burns, but we’ve got to use it to our advantage and not let it happen again.”Since backup goalie Alexandar Georgiev started and earned the win Saturday in the second game of a back-to-back set for the Rangers http://www.sanjosesharksteamshop.com/authentic-brent-burns-jersey , it is likely star goalie Henrik Lundqvist will be in net for New York on Monday night. Lundqvist took the defeat in his most recent appearance Friday, when he recorded 28 saves in the loss to the Red Wings.The Canucks, who will play a back-to-back set in New York and visit the Islanders on Tuesday night, are likely to split the starts in the Big Apple between number one goalie Jacob Markstrom, who has started the last seven games, and backup Anders Nilsson. Markstrom took the loss Saturday, when he recorded 34 saves. Nilsson hasn’t played since Oct. 25, when he took the defeat after making 26 saves in Vancouver’s 4-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes.Lundqvist is 8-5-0 in 13 career appearances against the Canucks.Markstrom (six games) and Nilsson (five games) are each 3-1-1 against the Rangers.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Alex Ovechkin and the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals opened their title defense with a 7-0 thrashing of the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night.After watching the franchise’s first Stanley Cup banner ascend to the rafters Vladislav Namestnikov Jersey , T.J. Oshie opened the scoring just 24 seconds in, and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored the first of his two goals 1 1/2 minutes later to get the rout off to a fast start. It was the fastest first two goals by a defending champion in a season opener in NHL history — and it was just the beginning.By midway through the second period, the Capitals chased goalie Tuukka Rask with five goals on 19 shots and ignited chants of “Back-to-back! Back-to-back!” from the fired-up crowd. Braden Holtby stopped all 25 shots he faced to improve to 15-2 with four shutouts against the Bruins.The emotional banner ceremony featured montages from the Capitals’ playoff run and ensuing celebrations and a roar when Ovechkin carried the freshly engraved Cup onto the ice and skated a lap with it. Minutes after Ovechkin kissed the Cup and put it back in its box, he and his teammates blew away any concern about an emotional letdown and began making a statement that they want to win it back.In Todd Reirden’s first game as coach, the Capitals beat the Bruins for the 13th consecutive time, this time without Tom Wilson. Washington’s top-line right winger began his 20-game suspension for another illegal check to the head of an opponent in a preseason game.Ovechkin scored one of four power-play goals, Kuznetsov scored his second on the power play and John Carlson beat Boston backup Jaroslav Halak on a 5-on-3 advantage. Newcomer Nic Dowd joined the fun with a spinning back-hander, and Cup-clinching goal-scorer Lars Eller added the exclamation point with the seventh of the night.MAPLE LEAFS 3, CANADIENS 2, OTTORONTO (AP) — Auston Matthews scored his second goal of the game in overtime, John Tavares scored his first goal for Toronto and the Maple Leafs beat Montreal in the opener for both teams.Matthews took a feed from Patrick Marleau and beat goalie Carey Price 1:01 into the extra period.Frederik Andersen stopped 34 shots, and Nazem Kadri had two assists for the Maple Leafs.Artturi Lehkonen and Andrew Shaw scored for Montreal, and Price made 23 saves. Max Domi, the son of former Leafs tough guy Tie Domi Bobby Ryan Jersey , had two assists in his first game for the Canadiens.Montreal’s Jesperi Kotkaniemi, the first NHL player born in the 2000s, picked up an assist. The Finn, who turned 18 in July, also became the second-youngest player in Canadiens’ history to score a point.DUCKS 5, SHARKS 2SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — John Gibson made 31 saves, Brandon Montour scored the tiebreaking goal with 11:58 to play and the Anaheim Ducks spoiled Erik Karlsson’s San Jose debut.Rickard Rakell added a goal and two assists, Max Comtois scored on his opening shift in the NHL and Adam Henrique also had a goal in the first game for the Ducks since getting swept in the first round by San Jose last spring. Jakob Silfverberg had three assists and Carter Rowney scored an empty-net goal for Anaheim.Evander Kane and Tomas Hertl scored for the Sharks but Martin Jones allowed four goals on the first 13 shots he faced to take the loss. Jones finished with 10 saves.CANUCkS 5, FLAMES 2VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Rookie Elias Pettersson scored on his first shot in his first NHL game, and Vancouver beat Calgary.Nikolay Goldobin, Brendan Leipsic, Jake Virtanen and Tyler Motte also scored for Vancouver. Jacob Markstrom stopped 33 shots.Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan had goals for the Flames http://www.officialsenators.com/authentic-adidas-chris-wideman-jersey , and Mike Smith finished with 18 saves.Pettersson opened the scoring with 6:12 left in the first period, picking up the puck in the neutral zone, springing into the Calgary end with teammate Derrick Pouliot on a 2-on-1. Petterson kept the puck and fired a wrist shot into the top of the net.The goal brought chants of “Petter-sson” from the crowd. John Tavares needed to post only one picture on his Twitter account to explain the grip the Maple Leafs have had on him since he was a youngster growing up in suburban Toronto.The photo featured a not-yet-10-year-old Tavares in bed, asleep on a pillowcase and under a blanket adorned with Maple Leafs logos, and accompanied by a note that read: ”Not everyday you can live a childhood dream.”In bidding farewell to the New York Islanders, where he was the captain and face of the franchise since being drafted with the No. 1 pick in 2009, Tavares chose Toronto and agreed to a seven-year, $77 million contract about an hour after the NHL’s free-agency signing period opened Sunday.The 27-year-old Tavares spent last week assessing offers from the Islanders, San Jose, Toronto, Dallas, Tampa Bay and Boston. He called his decision the toughest of his life in choosing between staying in New York or taking ”a calculated leap of faith into an opportunity I believe will be special to me and my family.”In the end, he was unable to avoid the lure Toronto presented, and informed the Maple Leafs he had chosen them late Saturday night.”I just felt this opportunity was just so rare Craig Anderson Jersey , the timing of where the organization’s at, and obviously the connection being from here,” Tavares said. ”I really believe there’s a big window here to win, to be part of something special. It just felt right.”Tavares, whose 306 points over the past four seasons rank sixth among players over that span, was the highest-profile player to hit the market since the Minnesota Wild signed both Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to matching 13-year, $98 million contracts.Tavares’ signing led to a domino effect in player movement.Toronto lost two forwards in free agency. James van Riemsdyk left the Maple Leafs after six seasons to return to Philadelphia, where he signed a five-year, $35 million contract. The Leafs also lost center Tyler Bozak, who signed a three-year, $15 million contract with St. Louis, which later on beefed up down the middle by acquiring Ryan O’Reilly in a blockbuster trade with the Buffalo Sabres.Some of money the Lightning saved by not landing Tavares was spent on signing defenseman Ryan McDonagh to a seven-year, $47.25 million extension, which kicks in next summer.Paul Stastny caused another ripple of moves in the Western Conference. He left Winnipeg to sign a three-year Authentic Erik Karlsson Jersey Kids , $19.5 million contract with the Stanley Cup finalist Vegas Golden Knights – a spot left open after David Perron returned to St. Louis by signing a four-year, $16 million deal.Vegas forward James Neal is among the more high-profile free agents still unsigned.In Nashville, the Predators will turn their attention to negotiating a contract extension with defenseman Ryan Ellis, who is entering the final year of his contract. The Ottawa Senators are expected to do the same with their captain, Erik Karlsson.Tavares’ signing has the potential of shifting the balance of power in the Eastern Conference.He joins a young, talented group that already features Auston Matthews, the 2016 draft’s No. 1 pick, a veteran presence in Patrick Marleau and a top coach in Mike Babcock.The Leafs, who haven’t won a championship since their last Stanley Cup Final appearance in 1967, have made strides in three years since Babcock’s arrival. Toronto has made the playoffs in each of the past two seasons after qualifying just once in the previous 11. And yet, they have not advanced past the first round since 2004.Tavares specifically referenced Matthews and 21-year-old center Mitchell Marner, who led the Leafs with 69 points last season as reasons to be optimistic.”They’ve accomplished so much in such little time. You can only think about the trajectory they’re on, and that’s what gets me excited,” Tavares said.The Islanders experienced struggles even with Tavares by qualifying for the playoffs just three times in nine seasons.Now they face a daunting uphill climb minus their unquestioned leader and point-a-game producer. In a bid to retain Tavares Jean-Gabriel Pageau Jersey , the team underwent an organizational makeover in recent months. They hired Lou Lamoriello as president of hockey operations and fresh Stanley Cup winner Barry Trotz as coach.”The New York Islanders would like to thank John Tavares for everything he has done for the franchise throughout his nine seasons,” Lamoriello said in a statement released by the team. ”We wish him and his family all the best.”Bruins GM Don Sweeney expressed one lament in losing out on signing Tavares.”I would have preferred it not be in our division,” Sweeney said, referring to Tavares making the switch from the Metropolitan to Atlantic Division. ”We put our best foot forward. It just didn’t fall our way.”Other notable deals:-Veteran defenseman Jack Johnson signed a five-year, $16.25 million contract with Pittsburgh. The 31-year-old Johnson is a 12-year NHL veteran, who spent the past six-plus seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets.-The Colorado Avalanche added two former Blue Jackets in signing defenseman Ian Cole and forward Matt Calvert to three-year deals. Cole gets $12.75 million and Calvert gets $8.4 million.-The Sabres filled a need at goaltender by signing former St. Louis Blues backup Carter Hutton to a three-year, $8.25 million deal.

OTTAWA Authentic Jaccob Slavin Jersey , Ontario (AP) — In the midst of a so-so sophomore season, the Golden Knights finally scored in bunches.William Carrier put Vegas ahead for good after Ottawa rallied from a three-goal deficit, and the Golden Knights beat the Senators 5-3 on Thursday night.Vegas, which reached the Stanley Cup final in its inaugural season but has hovered around .500 so far in this campaign, scored more than three goals in regulation for the first time since Oct. 16, a span of nine games.“We played a real good game,” coach Gerald Gallant said. “The puck finally went in the net for us so that was a real key for us to get five goals. We’re happy with that.”Jonathan Marchessault, Shea Theodore, Nick Holden and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare also scored for the Golden Knights. Marc-Andre Fleury made 27 saves.Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel and Thomas Chabot scored for the Senators, who fell behind 3-0 late in the second period before coming back to tie it in the third. Craig Anderson stopped 37 shots.Trailing 3-1 to start the third, Ottawa scored twice in just over a minute to make it 3-3. Dzingel scored at 6:57, and Chabot converted into a wide-open net as Fleury was caught sprawling.Vegas regained the lead about a minute later as Carrier won a battle along the boards, stepped around Mark Borowiecki and beat Anderson stick side.Bellemare got the final goal into a wide-open net after Anderson got tangled with Carrier. The Senators challenged unsuccessfully for goaltender interference, a call that infuriated coach Guy Boucher Jordan Staal Jersey , who said he isn’t sure what constitutes interference anymore.“I don’t know anymore,” Boucher said. “All of us together, we just don’t know anymore. I’ll let them decide and that’s it. I can’t make it, whether it’s our game or somebody else’s game. I guess that’s why I’m not paid for those decisions.”The goal with 8 minutes remaining was deflating for the Senators.“It’s human nature,” Boucher said. “I was 100 percent sure it was going to be goaltender interference, so it’s just mind-boggling so by the time you get rid of the frustration and all that it’s two goals. If it’s one goal, it might have been different.”Vegas dominated much of the second period and took a 3-0 lead late when Holden jumped into the play and lifted the puck over Anderson’s right shoulder. It was the well-traveled defenseman’s first goal for Vegas.Ottawa finally solved Fleury 29 seconds later when the goalie poke-checked Chabot and the puck went right to Duchene. Mike Stone picked up an assist, extending his point streak to five games.“I thought we did some really good things,” Duchene said. “Obviously when you tie it 3-3 in the third, it can go either way. We had the momentum, so tough way to lose.”Duchene’s goal came after Borowiecki accepted a challenge from Ryan Reaves to drop the gloves.“There’s been a couple high hits on our team the last couple weeks,” Reaves said. “Everybody knows that if you’re going to do that, you’re going to have to answer the bell. Good on him for answering the bell, not a lot of guys will do that, but good on him.”The Knights got two power-play goals in the first period. Marchessault opened the scoring 15 minutes in Womens Justin Faulk Jersey , and with 20 seconds remaining, Theodore fired a puck from just inside the blue line through traffic and past Anderson.NOTES: Senators rookie Brady Tkachuk returned after missing the previous nine games with a torn ligament in his left leg.

Screens by Colton Sisson set up goals by defensemen Josi and Ellis.”The power play played great today and got us a couple of goals, and I think we created a lot of chances,” Arvidsson said. ”I think we simplified it and just started shooting pucks, and getting net-front presences. Siss had two big screens today and that results in two goals, so that’s just simple hockey.”Arvidsson fired a game-high nine shots on goal.”He was really good,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. ”I mean he was working, constantly in motion, constantly moving towards the puck or working to generate Minnesota Wild T-Shirts Womens , working in the battles.”Pekka Rinne made 36 saves to earn his 30th win of the season. The Predators improved to 12-3-3 in their last 18 games.Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Max McCormick scored for the Senators, who played catch-up most of the game. Craig Anderson stopped 36 shots.”It seemed that our turnovers and the bad bounces end up in the back of our net, and when it was on the other side it didn’t happen,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. ”Their goalie made really big, key saves at big moments and I really thought definitely we deserved more goals than that, so too bad.”Nashville struck first on the power play when Josi fired a one-timer from above the right faceoff circle that beat Anderson glove side midway through the first period.”Sometimes with the power play that’s just how it goes,” Josi said. ”Sometimes you play really well – you have a lot of chances, but they don’t go in. You’ve just got to make sure you don’t get frustrated and keep it simple.”The Predators went ahead 2-0 about five minutes later when Arvidsson poked home a shot from the left side of the crease after receiving a backhanded pass from Ryan Johansen.Ottawa got its first goal on the power play with just under four minutes left in the first when Pageau stuffed home a rebound in front of the crease that beat Rinne glove side.Ellis scored on the power play when he blasted a one-timer by Anderson, who was screened by Sissons, to increase Nashville’s lead to 3-1 at 6:34 of the second period.Ottawa answered 1:31 later on McCormick’s wrist shot.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Kings accomplished something they haven’t done much during the first month of the season — play a complete game.The Kings got just their second win in the last nine games as they defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets 4-1 on Saturday night.“Like the way we came out and played http://www.officialcoyotes.com/authentic-adidas-oliver-ekman-larsson-jersey ,” Los Angeles coach John Stevens said. “We played faster with the puck. We also checked faster and had support of the puck when we regained possession.”Dustin Brown, who had a goal and two assists, thought that playing with the lead — which the Kings have done rarely this season — also did wonders.“We did exactly what we are known for. They had a lot of puck movement but we kind of bent but didn’t break and that was a big part of our success,” he said. “We got a lot of traffic in front of the net and pucks there. You are going to get a lot of goals when you get guys there.”Alex Iafallo’s goal at 12:03 of the first period marked the first time in nine games (Oct. 11 at Montreal) that Los Angeles scored the first goal. It also was the first contest since Oct. 18 against the Islanders (six games) that the Kings scored in the first 20 minutes.“It definitely gives you a spark. We played the right way defensively and that led to a really strong offense,” said goaltender Jack Campbell Richard Panik Jersey , who made 26 saves. “We won a lot of puck battles which eliminated their offensive zone time and shots on goal.”Anze Kopitar and Jeff Carter also scored for the Kings, who are 4-0 when scoring three or more goals.Zach Werenski had the Blue Jackets’ lone goal and Sergei Bobrovsky made 25 saves.The Kings led 2-1 in the third period when they put the game away with a pair of short-handed goals 57 seconds apart. Kopitar got his own rebound and went top shelf on Sergei Bobrovsky at 7:46 for the right wing’s fourth goal of the season. Brown put it away less than a minute later on a penalty shot, for his second. The penalty shot, which was Los Angeles’ first, was the result of Ryan Murray hooking Brown on the breakaway attempt.“We’ve been inconsistent Womens Shane Doan Jersey , quite honestly,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said. “You get the game straightened out and find a way to crawl back into it and we just didn’t pull up on our power play.”Iafallo put Los Angeles on the board first with his third. The left wing’s shot from the left faceoff circle trickled underneath Bobrovsky’s pads.

(AP) The scene was all too familiar for the San Jose Sharks: a postgame handshake line on their home ice with the other team celebrating a series win while the Sharks wonder what might have been.A team that seemed to have the ingredients necessary for a long playoff run went out instead in the second round with a 3-0 loss Sunday in Game 6 against the expansion Vegas Golden Knights.”For periods of this series I thought we were a better team, I thought we played the game that we know we’re capable of, we showed we could beat them Chicago Blackhawks T-Shirts Authentic ,” forward Logan Couture said. ”We just didn’t do it long enough.”That’s what perhaps makes this the most bitter playoff loss in coach Peter DeBoer’s three seasons in San Jose, all of which ended with home playoff losses.In 2016, the Sharks got over a major hump and made it to the Stanley Cup Final for the first time in franchise history before losing in six games to a more talented Pittsburgh team.Last year, San Jose sputtered toward the finish of the season and lost in six games to Edmonton in the first round in large part due to injuries that hampered top two centers Couture and Joe Thornton.But the Sharks were healthier this year despite Thornton’s absence because of a knee injury. Midseason acquisitions Evander Kane and Eric Fehr had San Jose surging following a first-round sweep against Anaheim.They came out flat in the opener against Vegas and lost 7-0 and then dropped a key overtime contest at home in Game 3, playing much of the series from behind. The biggest difference was the performance of the top lines with Vegas’ trio of William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault and Reilly Smith combining for eight goals and 17 assists, while Kane, Joe Pavelski and Joonas Donskoi had just three goals and two assists for the Sharks.”We definitely would’ve liked to have been a little bit more productive,” Pavelski said. ”It’s hard to say. We’ll have to take a look at it, figure it out. We had some looks Chicago Blackhawks Hoodies Authentic , we had some chances, we didn’t capitalize when we did. I wish I had an answer. We sure should’ve been a little better.”Here are some other takeaways from the season and things to watch this summer:JUMBO JOEThornton injured his right knee on Jan. 23 and never was able to make it back into the lineup. He practiced all postseason and even took part in all the pregame skates but never felt quite healthy enough to get back into the lineup. The 38-year-old Thornton is now eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, leaving his future in San Jose in doubt. He still can be productive as evidenced by his 13 goals and 23 assists in 47 games. But after significant knee injuries the past two seasons, there are questions about whether he will be able to keep up in the faster paced game.KANE’S CALLThe move to acquire Kane from Buffalo at the trade deadline provided a major spark. He had nine goals and five assists in 17 games, providing needed speed and physicality on San Jose’s top line. That carried over to the first round when he had three goals and an assists in a sweep against Anaheim but Kane wasn’t nearly as effective against Vegas as he played through injuries. Now the Sharks have a decision to make whether to keep Kane or let him leave as a free agent. If he signs, they owe Buffalo a first-round pick in 2019. If he leaves, that pick becomes a second-rounder.”Obviously I enjoy winning and coming here was a great opportunity for me to do that,” Kane said. ”I really, really, really enjoyed my time with this group of guys Chicago Blackhawks Hats Authentic , and loved going to battle with these guys.”STEPPING UPThe best development for the Sharks this season was the development of some younger players. Tomas Hertl looks like he could be a dominant power forward, Chris Tierney and Kevin Labanc are able playmakers, Timo Meier scored 21 goals at age 21, and Joakim Ryan is an ideal defensive partner for Brent Burns. Those players will be counted on to do even more in the future as the Sharks transition from players like Thornton, Pavelski and the departed Patrick Marleau to a new generation.CAP ROOMThe Sharks head into the offseason with projected salary cap room of more than $15 million. While some of that could be used up by keeping Thornton or Kane, GM Doug Wilson also could use that money to target a top free agent like John Tavares of the New York Islanders. Wilson has been planning for that flexibility for years and now the question becomes how he will use it.—
