The Eastern Conference No. 1 seed Tampa Bay Lightning sure hope so after Stamkos missed four of the last seven regular-season games with a nagging lower-body injury.After a torn meniscus in his right knee cost Stamkos several months and likely Tampa Bay a playoff spot last season , his status bears watching more than any other injured player going into the Stanley Cup playoffs.Stamkos was a full participant in practice Monday and said it’s ”the hope” to be ready for Game 1 Thursday when the Lightning host the New Jersey Devils.”Definitely a step in the right direction,” Stamkos told reporters in Tampa. ”Felt pretty good all things considered.”That’s a good sign for the Lightning, who got 100 points from Nikita Kucherov but count on Stamkos to be their top-line center and a big-time scorer on the power play.Tampa Bay’s opponent is hoping to get Marcus Johansson back after he missed New Jersey’s final 35 games with a concussion. Johansson has been cleared for contact, but not yet to play and said over the weekend he’s feeling better.In the West, the already-deep top-seeded Nashville Predators are on the verge of getting forward Calle Jarnkrok back after he missed almost the final month of the regular season with an upper-body injury. Jarnkrok had 16 goals and 19 assists for 35 points in 68 games with Nashville, which opens against Colorado.”I think he’s getting real close,” general manager David Poile said. ”We get into this time of the year, so I guess you’d have to say he’s day to day.”Washington Capitals coach Barry Trotz called forwards T.J. Oshie (lower body) and Jay Beagle (upper body) day to day Dustin Brown Jersey , too. Oshie practiced Tuesday, while Beagle skated afterward with a more questionable status.”I feel good,” Oshie said. ”I feel right now I’m playing my best hockey. Obviously, I’ve rested a couple of games. But I feel like I’ve had the most energy and the most clarity out there then I did for a while there. Right there I feel at my best.”In the first round, they’ll have to deal with Columbus captain Nick Foligno, who’s ready to rejoin the Blue Jackets lineup after missing time with a lower-body injury.A few high-profile defensemen weren’t as fortunate, and their injuries could prove costly. Boston lost Brandon Carlo and Minnesota lost Ryan Suter to broken ankles, and Winnipeg won’t have Dmitry Kulikov with a back injury. Winnipeg faces Minnesota in the first round.It’s the second consecutive playoffs Carlo missed after he was concussed by Alex Ovechkin a year ago.”It’s the one thing he’s been looking forward to Womens Jake Muzzin Jersey ,” Krug said of Carlo. ”Obviously he went through it last year missing the time and this year he was excited for it. You feel awful. It’s a tough break.”Coach Bruce Cassidy said: ”It (stinks), honestly, for a guy that’s played almost every regular-season game. … It’s disappointing for me. He’s a well-liked guy on this team and done a lot, so that’s disheartening.”The Bruins are optimistic injured forwards Rick Nash, Riley Nash and Sean Kuraly will be ready for Game 1 against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday.”They’re all working that way,” Boston GM Don Sweeney said. ”Hopefully they’ll all be available.”—AP Sports Writer Teresa M. Walker in Nashville, Tennessee, contributed.— WINNIPEG Jeff Carter Jersey , Manitoba — The last time the Winnipeg Jets had the NHL’s goal-scoring leader on its roster, Teemu Selanne was tearing things up as a rookie.The Finnish Flash went back and forth with Buffalo’s Alexander Mogilny during the season and they both ended up with 76 goals during the 1992-93 campaign. Selanne set a mark that will likely never be topped for first-year players. (Mogilny was already a relative veteran in his fourth season.)Fast forward to today and the Jets now boast the league’s leading sniper after winger Patrik Laine notched a quintet of goals in an 8-4 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Saturday night, giving him 19.Article continues below ...Less than four weeks ago, Laine was bouncing around the line-up, even spending some time on the fourth line, having scored just three times in a dozen games. Then the Jets flew to Finland for a pair of contests against the Florida Panthers and Laine suddenly regained his scoring touch, scoring four goals, including one hat-trick.His torrid pace has continued , including two more hat-tricks and 11 goals in his last four games. In fact, he’s the only player in NHL history to record a hat-trick in three different countries in the same season.He’ll be looking to increase his lead in the race for the Rocket Richard trophy when the Jets host the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday night at Bell MTS Place.Penguins defenseman Brian Dumoulin said he and his teammates are well aware of what happened in St. Louis on the weekend.“(Laine) doesn’t need a lot of room to get his shot off. And it’s so heavy, it’s tough for goalies to react to. He’s a dynamic player and he’s also got really good hands and can create space for himself,” he told The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.The visitors have hardly been acting like perennial Stanley Cup contenders and currently sit in sixth places in the Metropolitan Division, but they got a boost last week when captain Sidney Crosby returned to the line-up after missing a troika of games with an upper-body injury. He has five points in three games since his return, two of them wins.The Penguins know they’ve got a tough week ahead as they have to travel to Colorado for Wednesday night, where they’ll face arguably the hottest line in the league, center Nathan MacKinnon and wingers Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog.Jets coach Paul Maurice was quick to praise not only Laine but his entire second line Nate Thompson Jersey , including center Bryan Little and left winger Kyle Connor, who each had four points against the Blues.“What the three of them were able to do was impressive. They’re going to do things differently based on the style of player but the end result is they had a lot of offensive zone time,” he said in a scrum after practice on Monday.“At times when Patty weighed in, he’s a physical presence down there. I’m not talking about dropping guys or knocking guys down, I’m talking about controlling the puck and holding people off. Each one of them does it differently but they’re starting to bring their own individual gifts to the line and play off each other well.”

We're almost at the quarter way

mark of the 2018-19 NHL season Alex Smith Jersey Elite , and fans are starting to get a good idea of which teams are legitimate contenders - and which ones are lookig like pretenders.The Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators continue to vie for the top spot in the NHL. Who was No. 1 this week? Did anybody fall to 31st over the Los Angeles Kings? Who else fell and jumped significantly?Here are this week's power rankings.31. Los Angeles Kings (6-11-1) Credit: Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsOkay, so John Stevens wasn't the problem. Neither is interim head coach Willie Desjardins. The Kings are simply too old and slow to keep up with the rest of the league. Trading Tanner Pearson was only the start for GM Rob Blake. Expect more moves.advertising30. Vegas Golden Knights (8-11-1)Regression was inevitable, but did anybody think Vegas would be the second-worst team in the West up to this point? Max Pacioretty has a mere four points in 15 games, while 4-goal man William Karlsson has found the back of the net just four times.29. Pittsburgh Penguins (7-7-3)Yikes. Calm and soft-spoken GM Jim Rutherford has admitted he's impatient and is ready to make more trades if the club doesn't get better. The Penguins have lost seven of their last eight, and now Sidney Crosby is out for a week with an upper-body injury. The Pens are really in trouble.advertising28. New Jersey Devils (8-8-1)Hard to believe this team started out the season 4-0-0. The Devils have won their last two games, but there isn't much reason for optimism. It's just not possible to overlook all the flaws on this roster right now.27. St. Louis Blues (7-7-3)Not saying Mike Yeo is the problem, but Joel Quenneville is second all-time in coaching wins. Might the Blues decide to bring back their former bench boss - and thus fix an otherwise talented team that just can't live up to the hype?26. Anaheim Ducks (8-9-4)The Ducks are going to totally prevent John Gibson from winning the Vezina Trophy, aren't they? If it weren't for him, they'd be vying for dead-last in the NHL with the Kings. Expect a coaching change soon.advertising25. Vancouver Canucks (10-9-2)Injuries aren't an excuse. The Canucks lost five of six on that brutal road trip, including a 6-2 embarrassment at the hands of the Minnesota Wild on Thursday. Seems like the annual Winter unraveling is underway in Vancouver.24. Chicago Blackhawks (7-8-5)Remember when the Blackhawks fired a legendary head coach, believing their fortunes would maybe change?Ah well, only the Penguins can brag about having three Stanley Cup championships in the 21st century. Don't feel too bad for the fans in Chicago.23. Florida Panthers (7-6-3)Evgenii Dadonov (17 points), and Mike Hoffman (16 points), are scoring in bunches, but the rest of the Panthers ought to get it going soon. Remember, they caught fire in the second half but just narrowly missed the playoffs. We suggest they got hot before the new year this time.advertising22. Detroit Red Wings (8-9-2)The Red Wings have won seven of their last 10 games now, overcoming that miserable start to the season. This is still a rebuilding year , so keep your expectations low. But at least the Wings are giving their fans some good hockey to watch.21. Ottawa Senators (8-8-2) Credit: Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY SportsThe Sens were everybody's pick to finish last in the NHL, but youngsters Thomas Chabot (22 points), and Chris Tierney (16 points), won't let that happen. Ottawa has played above expectations thus far, so credit head coach Guy Boucher for keeping this locker room together.20. Philadelphia Flyers (9-9-1)Claude Giroux has 22 points in 19 games, proving that last season's bounce-back year was no fluke. Now, if the Flyers could just get some half-decent goaltending and more production from the other top-six forwards.advertising19. Washington Capitals (9-7-3)Three Words: Stanley. Cup. Hangover.The Capitals will figure it all out soon enough.18. Carolina Hurricanes (8-7-3)Well, the Hurricanes have fallen quite a bit after a hot start. On the bright side, Sebastian Aho continues his torrid pace with 22 points in 18 games.17. Edmonton Oilers (9-8-1)Thanks to some guy named Connor McDavid, the Oilers are hanging around in the playoff race and figure to avoid another miserable season. Side note: May they consider bringing aboard Joel Quenneville to replace Todd McLellan, if management begins to lose its patience?16. New York Rangers (9-8-2)advertisingWasn't this supposed to be a rebuilding year? The Rangers find themselves in a playoff spot heading into the weekend. What a remarkable job done by rookie head coach David Quinn. Now comes the tricky part: Sustaining this success.15. Arizona Coyotes (9-8-1)Are the Coyotes overachieving, considering that Alex Galchenyuk, Derek Stepan and Dylan Strome haven't been scoring much? Or is this team to be taken more seriously as a sleeper club? A 2-1 home win over Nashville on Thursday suggests the latter...for now.advertising14. Dallas Stars (10-7-2)Losing top defenceman John Klingberg for five-to-six weeks is cause for concern. We'll see how new head coach Jim Montgomery prepares his team without their star blueliner. A 1-0 overtime win vs. Boston on Friday was a night start, though.13. Calgary Flames (10-8-1)David Rittich should probably be the starter from here on out. Veteran netminder Mike Smith continues to give up too many soft goals. The Flames should be much better than a .500 team, and they may not get there until the goaltending sorts itself out.12. New York Islanders (10-6-2) Credit: Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsWell, nobody thought they be this good after losing their captain in free agency. If this keeps up, Barry Trotz has to be considered the favorite to win the Jack Adams Trophy. Simply remarkable.advertising11. Colorado Avalanche (9-6-4)A big comeback win vs. the Boston Bruins on Wednesday. Will it help the Avalanche bust out of their slump? Mikko Rantanen (29 points) Authentic Matt Ioannidis Jersey , and Nate MacKinnon (26 points), are first and second in league scoring. Wow.10. San Jose Sharks (10-7-3)Joe Thornton notched his 400th career goal on Tuesday, but you feel like the Sharks should be better. Hard to believe Erik Karlsson has yet to score a goal with his single team. But the other Shark veterans have this team leading the Pacific Division...for now.9. Buffalo Sabres (11-6-2)Sabre fans just wanted to see not-awful hockey for once. How about a playoff spot through mid-November? Jeff Skinner is off to a scorching start with 14 goals and seven assists.聽 Jack Eichel (20 points), and Jason Pominville (15 points), are also producing ample offense..advertising8. Boston Bruins (10-6-3)The top line is surging - with David Pastrnak leading the NHL in goals. But the goaltending has been shaking, and the lack of secondary scoring is worrisome. If the Bruins want to compete for a Stanley Cup, they need the rest of the forwards to get going. It's that simple.7. Columbus Blue Jackets (11-6-2)The Jackets remain steady as ever. They're getting by with balanced scoring and quality defence. It bodes well for the Jackets in that Metro rivals - Pittsburgh, Philly and - Washington are all struggling in the early going.6. Montreal Canadiens (10-6-3)Considering Carey Price's early-season struggles, the Canadiens have to be delighted with where they stand right now. He tuned in a fine performance in Thursday's 3-2 win over Calgary. If and when Price regains his old form, the Habs will take off even more.advertising5. Winnipeg Jets (11-5-2)The Jets have erased a slow start and are once again asserting themselves as a legitimate Stanley Cup contender. Now, if they could just gain some ground on the surging Wild and Predators...4. Minnesota Wild (12-5-2)They may be the oldest team in the NHL, but the Wild are playing like a bunch of 21-year-olds. They're fast, skilled and scoring in bunches. I'm ashamed of myself for predicting a non-playoff year in Minnesota for 2018-19.3. Toronto Maple Leafs (14-6-0)Ignore the pessimistic fans and the haters. Toronto is second in the East without William Nylander and Auston Matthews right now. John Tavares is earning every penny, and the Leafs look like a true championship contender.2. Nashville Predators (13-5-1)Three straight losses for the Predators prevents them from taking the No. 1 spot. But there's nothing to worry about in the Music City. The only thing stopping this team from winning the Western Conference is the Winnipeg Jets, who eliminated the Preds in the second round of last season's playoffs.1. Tampa Bay Lightning (13-5-1) Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsIn case you didn't take Tampa seriously before, they erased a 2-0 deficit in Pittsburgh and handed the Penguins a 4-3 loss. Seven players already have double-digit points. As everybody expected, Brayden Point leads the team in scoring with 22 points. ANAHEIM Matt Ioannidis Jersey Elite , Calif. (AP) — Although Troy Terry is only five games into his NHL career, he was already something of a shootout legend even before he arrived in Anaheim.When he got his first shootout opportunity for the Ducks on Monday night, Terry broke out the same skills he employed to win two enormous shootouts in the world junior championships last year.Terry sent the crowd home happy — with plenty of help from John Gibson, of course.Terry scored the only goal in the shootout, Gibson made 19 saves and the Ducks celebrated the home opener of their 25th anniversary season with a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.Jakob Silfverberg scored the tying goal with 11:31 to play, and Hampus Lindholm also scored as the Ducks improved to 3-0-0 for the first time since their 2006-07 Stanley Cup championship season.Terry scored through Jimmy Howard’s legs in his fifth NHL game, and Gibson stopped all three Red Wings shooters.Terry famously scored three times for the U.S. junior team against Russia in a semifinal shootout in Montreal in January 2017. He put the puck past Howard with pretty much the same five-hole shot he used three times on Ilya Samsonov in that reputation-making win.“There’s so much pressure now whenever I jump over the wall to take those,” Terry said. “I’ve kind of been known for scoring five-hole, so I figured I’d try it again. Luckily it worked. … It’s the weirdest thing. My brain just goes to one thing.”Terry also scored the only shootout goal in the championship game against Canada to win the world juniors, but he claims no special expertise in shootout skills. Ducks coach Randy Carlyle disagreed, sending out the rookie as his second shooter.“He’s made it pretty easy (to choose him), because he’s been able to score,” Carlyle said. “It was a natural.”Tyler Bertuzzi and Darren Helm scored and Howard stopped 24 shots for the Red Wings, who are winless in their first three games. Detroit couldn’t hold two leads in a game between two young rosters getting NHL experience on the fly.“I think we’re just going to stay the course,” forward Gustav Nyquist said. “We have liked the way we played, especially the first two games. Today we could be a little better with the puck, but overall we are going to be fine in here if we keep competing the way we are.”Exactly 25 years to the day after the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim debuted at Honda Center against the Red Wings , the teams met again in the Ducks’ home opener. Detroit spoiled the Mighty Ducks’ debut on Oct. 8, 1993, with a 7-2 victory.After starting this season with two road victories despite an injury-depleted roster, Anaheim finally opened its anniversary season at Honda Center, the Ducks’ home for their entire existence — and much better known to hockey fans as the Pond.But captain Ryan Getzlaf, NHL MVP Corey Perry, Selke Trophy winner Ryan Kesler and goal-scoring forwards Patrick Eaves and Ondrej Kase all missed the home opener due to injury, while power forward Nick Ritchie is still a contract holdout.“They are finding ways to win right now without their big guys in the lineup,” Howard said of the Ducks.Six rookies were in the Ducks’ starting lineup, underlining Anaheim’s commitment to use its ample young talent this season.“We put them in situations historically they would play in lower levels,” Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said. “This is the best league in the world. They were in there and survived, so hopefully they feel good about themselves.”The Ducks held a brief pregame ceremony in the first chapter of a season-long celebration of the history of an expansion franchise named after a kids’ movie as part of the Walt Disney Company’s venture into team sports in the 1990s. Owners Henry and Susan Samueli dropped the ceremonial first puck alongside Michael Eisner, the former Disney chairman who guided the franchise into existence.NOTES: Isac Lundestrom, an 18-year-old Swedish center, made his NHL debut for the Ducks. He is the third-youngest player and youngest forward to make his debut with Anaheim. … D Joe Hicketts returned to the Red Wings’ lineup after Trevor Daley injured himself in Los Angeles on Sunday night. … The healthy Ducks wore the team’s 1993 eggplant-and-jade jerseys during pregame warmups, and they played in their new third jerseys using similar colors and the club’s original logo with a duck-bill goalie mask and crossed hockey sticks.UP NEXTRed Wings: Host Toronto on Thursday.Ducks: Host Arizona on Wednesday.

WINNIPEG Marcus Foligno Jersey , Manitoba (AP) —Roslovic had his first career hat trick as the Winnipeg Jets scored a franchise-record six goals in the first period on their way to a 9-3 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.Roslovic had left the morning skate because of cramps and was a game-time decision. But the third-year forward rebounded to score three power-play goals and add an assist.“Went off the ice there in the early morning skate, but I guess I toughed it out,” said Roslovic, adding he warmed up his body in the gym. “I guess things like that happen.”Bryan Little scored twice and had one assist. Andrew Copp, Blake Wheeler, Brendan Lemieux and Tyler Myers also had goals for Winnipeg, which has won three straight and seven consecutive games at home.The nine goals set a franchise record for most goals scored in a game at home and tied the franchise record for most goals scored in a game.“It feels like we haven’t been playing our best hockey here and at some points, it’s been a bit of a lull,” Copp said. “So we give our fans something to cheer about early in that first and get them into the game right away.”Nick Ritchie , Daniel Sprong and Devin Shore scored for the Ducks, who lost their third straight in the first game of a five-game trip.Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves for the Jets and was credited with an assist in the second game of a three-game homestand.“Our personnel has to understand what happened tonight is unacceptable and we’re going to hold some people accountable to the way that they’re playing,” Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle said. “With ice time. They’re gonna sit in the stands. You know there are various ways to do it, but you know it’s one of those things that I never expected us to perform like we did tonight with the group that we have coming off of a nine-day break.“I figured we would have a little bit of a lull, that we would get our feet underneath us, but we didn’t initiate enough and didn’t get involved enough in the hockey game to even be satisfied.”John Gibson stopped eight of the 14 shots he faced before being pulled after Lemieux’s goal at 17:41 of the first period made it 6-0. Chad Johnson made 14 saves in relief.“To give up six in the first period. Unacceptable,” Corey Perry said. “We as a team have to be better, have to be better in front of (Gibson).Before Anaheim even had a shot on goal in the first period, Copp scored at 2:07 and Roslovic made it 2-0 with his first of the game at 5:26.Wheeler Mikael Granlund Jersey , Little, Roslovic and Lemieux added four more goals between 12:04 and 17:41.Gibson was beat by a variety of shots; Roslovic on a breakaway, Wheeler off a rebound, Lemieux had a wraparound and a two-on-one with Little and Dmitry Kulikov, who was playing in his 600th NHL game.The Jets outshot the Ducks 14-4 in the opening frame. Anaheim responded with two straight goals in the second by Ritchie at 1:32 and Sprong at 13:54.Myers made it 7-2 when he redirected an pass from Appleton into the net at 14:42, and Roslovic caused hats to rain down from the stands with his third goal with 21 seconds remaining in second.While the Jets had a 10-9 shot advantage in the second period, they continued to make their shots count.Little tipped a point shot from Chiarot that went by Johnson 54 seconds into the third. Shore scored for the Ducks at 12:17 to make it 9-3.NOTES: Anaheim was coming off a nine-day break and welcomed back three players from injury. Perry made his season debut after undergoing knee surgery on Sept. 26. Patrick Eaves had been out 33 games because of a broken rib and Jakob Silfverberg had missed four games with a hamstring injury.UP NEXTDucks: At Toronto on Monday.Jets: Host San Jose on Tuesday. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Brayden Point and the Tampa Bay Lightning had a big-time response after a lopsided loss at Arizona over the weekend.Point had a career-high five points with a goal and four assists, defenseman Braydon Coburn scored twice Youth Mikko Koivu Jersey , and the Lightning rallied from an early two-goal deficit to beat the New Jersey Devils 8-3 on Tuesday night.“We controlled the majority of the play,” Lightning star Steven Stamkos said.Point has seven goals and seven assists in 11 games this season.“He’s a real tenacious player,” Devils coach John Hynes said. “He’s extremely competitive. He’s a high-skilled player that plays the game the right way all the time. He’s a difficult player to play against.”Stamkos got his 350th career goal and added two assists for Tampa Bay, which was coming off a 3-1-1 trip that included a 7-1 loss in Arizona on Saturday.“It’s always nice when you get an accomplishment like that,” Stamkos said.Nikita Kucherov had two goals and an assist, and Tyler Johnson and Ryan McDonagh had the other Lightning goals. Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves.Kucherov left with 6 minutes left in the second after taking a shot near the inside of his left knee but returned early in the third.Miles Wood, Travis Zajac and Kyle Palmieri scored for the Devils, who started a seven-game trip. Keith Kinkaid stopped 31 of 38 shots before being replaced five minutes into the third by Cory Schneider, who allowed a goal on six shots in his first game after offseason hip surgery.“In general Ryan Suter Jersey , we weren’t good enough to be able to win the game,” Hynes said. “They were better, basically, in every facet of the game. We’ve got to learn lessons from it and address some things. We’ve got some things to talk about tomorrow.”Point scored 31 seconds into the second as Tampa Bay went up 3-2. Kucherov and Stamkos added power-play goals later in the period that made it 5-2.After Wood and Zajac scored in the opening 5:04, Coburn tied it at 2 with first-period goals at 7:30 and 13:30.“The game just slipped away,” New Jersey center Nico Hischier said. “We didn’t play our game. We stopped forechecking, we stopped hitting them.”Coburn stopped a 38-game goal drought and has 46 goals in 861 NHL games. He scored just once in three of the previous four regular seasons. It was his second career multi-goal game, with the other coming on Oct. 31, 2009 Evgeny Svechnikov Jersey Womens , while with Philadelphia.“Every nine years,” Coburn said with a smile. “It was real nice to be able to chip in offensively.”Coburn had a third-period shot go wide.“It would have been a cool feeling,” Coburn said of a potential hat trick.Tampa Bay’s penalty kill had not allowed a goal in 24 chances at home before Palmieri got his ninth goal, which cut the deficit to 5-3 on the Devils’ second power play late in the second. Taylor Hall assisted and extended his point streak to eight games (10 assists, 12 points).Johnson, Kucherov and McDonagh all scored in the third.NOTES: Lightning D Victor Hedman (shoulder) missed his second straight game and will be re-evaluated this weekend.

OTTAWA Max Domi Jersey Womens , Ontario (AP) —for the Washington Capitals on Saturday.Tom Wilson scored, Tyler Lewington and Madison Bowey each got their first career goals and the Capitals beat the short-handed Ottawa Senators 3-2.Lewington and Bowey are the first Capitals defensemen to get their first goals in the same game. Lewington also had a Gordie Howe hat trick with an assist and a fight against Zack Smith in his second NHL game.“The first game I was definitely nervous, and this game I was still a little nervous but the guys have been great making me feel comfortable,” Lewington said. “I wasn’t really thinking of (the Gordie Howe hat trick). It just kind of happened, but it’s kind of cool. I’ve only had one other one back in junior. I don’t know if I’ll ever get another one.”The Capitals have won four straight, and the Senators have dropped four in a row. Pheonix Copley made 31 saves for Washington.The Senators were without top defenseman Thomas Chabot and fellow blue-liner Christian Jaros following injuries Friday in a 6-3 loss to the New York Islanders. Jaros broke a finger, and Chabot was placed on injured reserve with an upper body injury following a hit from Islanders forward Matt Murray in the second period. Both players are expected to miss 3 to 4 weeks.The Senators had goaltender Marcus Hogberg making his first NHL appearance. Hogberg made 21 saves, and Colin White and Mark Stone scored for the Senators, who are last in the Eastern Conference.“It was as tough … for him coming in but he gave us a chance , and we had a chance to the very end so he did his job,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said of Hogberg.Stone scored at 16:30 of the third period, creating a white-knuckle finish.“The boys played really well in front of me and helped me see some pucks and it’s nice to have it done,” said Hogberg, who has split time between the AHL and ECHL the past two seasons.Lewington assisted on the game’s opening goal by Wilson at 7:12 of the first period for the first point of his career and whistled a shot past Hogberg at 16:00 for his first NHL goal.Late in the second period, he got his first fighting major in a bout with Smith.Bowey gave the Capitals a 3-0 lead just 61 seconds into the second period when he skated in from the point and beat Hogberg with a shot from the top of the faceoff circle.“I’m happy it went in, obviously. It’s been a long time and it definitely felt great. It turned out to be a big goal for us and I’m happy we got the two points,” Bowey said. “To see (Lewington) score and get the Gordie Howe hat trick is really special.”The Senators got one back when White was credited with a goal at 4:22 of the second after a Washington challenge for goaltender interference was dismissed.Senators rookie Brady Tkachuk earned an assist on that goal but just 33 seconds later was knocked to the ice by a hit to the head from Bowey. Tkachuk immediately jumped to his feet and received an instigator minor, fighting major and misconduct for going after Bowey. He drew a loud cheer from the home crowd when he left the penalty box three minutes into the third.NOTES: The Capitals have won the past four meetings between the two teams. … Saturday was the second of three meetings between teams this season. The Capitals were 4-0 winners in Ottawa on Dec. 22 and they meet again in Washington on Feb. 26. … The Senators recalled Ds Stefan Elliott and Christian Wolanin from Belleville of the AHL on Saturday.UP NEXTCapitals: Host Nashville on Monday.Senators: Play at Columbus on Monday night. The Chicago Blackhawks can’t afford to look past any game but it might be understandable if they are preoccupied when they play Colorado on Saturday night.While Chicago is battling the Avalanche in Denver , the Winter Classic festivities will be in full swing at Millennium Park in South Bend, Ind. The Blackhawks are playing Boston in the Jan. 1 game.But before Chicago (14-20-6) gets to the high-profile matchup of original six teams it will face a struggling Avalanche squad that has lost three in a row and has gone 3-7-1 since winning 9 of 11. The Blackhawks are trying to beat Colorado for the second time in eight days in Denver and gain some momentum under coach Jeremy Colliton.Article continues below ...Since he replaced Joel Quenneville on Nov. 6 Chicago is 8-14-3 and adjusting to the young coach’s style.“It’s just because every group is different,” Colliton told The Chicago Tribune for the slow adjustment. “Every player is different. And that’s part of what my learning curve is: learning the group, learning of them individually.“But the new guys, just getting to know each other in a short time, that’s the adjustment.”The Blackhawks will have forward Marcus Kruger back. The center suffered a concussion on Dec. 18 and missed four games, including the 2-1 win over Colorado. Forward Jacob Nilsson, who played in two games in Kruger’s absence, was sent back to Rockford of the AHL.Defenseman Brent Seabrook missed practice on Friday with an illness but traveled to Denver.The Avalanche (19-13-6) made some changes – not to the roster but to their lines. With the recent struggles coach Jared Bednar is moving left winger Gabe Landeskog off the top line to the second line Mikkel Boedker Jersey Womens , breaking up the highest-scoring line in the NHL.Landeskog leads the team with 24 goals and has combined with center Nathan MacKinnon and forward Mikko Rantanen for 160 points. But the lack of secondary scoring has become an issue and Bednar wants to spread the talent.“We’re flipping them around a little bit to see if we can spark a few guys,” Bednar told after Friday’s practice. “We’ve done it a couple times in the middle of games and it’s paid off in our favor.“We’ve talked to our top guys about it; they’re open to the change. We’re going to see what we can do, see if we can find another combination that works for our whole team.”Matt Nieto will now play with MacKinnon and Rantanen. Landeskog, who has 19 assists, will skate with J.T. Compher and Alexander Kerfoot.“We’ve lost three in a row, so we’ve got to change something up,” he told “Obviously, we had some chemistry with me, Mikko and Nate , but I’m excited to play with Comph and Kerf, and I think Nietsy’s going to do great with Nate and Mikko.“It’s very rare that a line stays together for 82 games, but I kind of figured you (media) guys would come in and get excited over this, but for us it’s just a part of the business. For me, it doesn’t really matter who I’m playing with. I’m just excited to get back out and get back on the winning side.”

After a solid start to a road trip ,realized that sometimes the best road to success is simply to read and react as the game unfolds.The Islanders look to change their fortunes in north Texas as they wrap up a road trip Sunday night against the Dallas Stars ahead of the league’s three-day Christmas break.After limiting the Colorado Avalanche and Arizona Coyotes to a total of two goals in the first two games, New York (17-13-4) quickly ran out of gas in a 4-2 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday when they blew a two-goal lead after the first period.Article continues below ...“We played a good 20 minutes to start and after that we were just flat,” said Islanders winger Anders Lee, who is tied with center Brock Nelson for the team lead with 12 goals. “The last 40, we’re all just kind of fighting the puck a little bit and fighting the play of the game. You try to work through that New Jersey Devils T-Shirts Authentic , try to get back on it, try to get pucks to the net.”Eight Islanders have collected at least one goal on the road trip, but the best performer may be Ryan Pulock. The defenseman has five of his 13 assists on the season over the last three games.New York hasn’t fared well in recent years when visiting the Lone Star State. The Isles have dropped three of their last four at American Airlines Center, including two shutout losses.Islanders winger Josh Bailey believes the team can bounce back from the setback in Vegas before heading to the Northeast.“No matter how good or bad you play, you learn from it. There’s always room for improvement and you come in ready to go New Jersey Devils Hoodies Authentic ,” said Bailey, who registered assists in four straight games and six of his last seven.Dallas (18-15-3) goes for a sweep of the season series after getting two goals each from Esa Lindell and Alexander Radulov in a 6-2 win on Nov. 18 in New York. The Stars are just 2-5-0 when facing Metropolitan Division foes in 2018-19.Coach Jim Montgomery’s team also has a quick turnaround after a 2-1 overtime win against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night. Radulov assisted on Jamie Benn’s third-period goal before picking up his second game-winner of the season with 10 seconds left.“Now we have to take a rest, adjust a little bit and get ready for tomorrow before the little break,” Radulov said.Both Benn and Radulov are riding point streaks. Benn has three goals and three assists in a five-game run, while Radulov has one goal and five helpers in a four-game streak.Benn has been a thorn in New York’s side for a couple of years. Over his last four matchups New Jersey Devils Hats Authentic , the 10-year veteran has three goals and six assists. Meanwhile, Radulov has three goals and one helper in his last two meetings with the Islanders.Dallas will need them to keep producing. In the back ends of games on consecutive nights, the Stars are 1-5-0 this season.Dallas also looks for its third win in four games after a season-high four-game skid. CALGARY, Alberta — The Calgary Flames believe in themselves and for good reason as they are tied for the top spot in the Pacific Division through 29 games.Calgary (14-9-1) has won four of their past five games as they head into an encounter against the Dallas Stars on Wednesday.“We like a lot of the things we’re doing. I think we can always improve and we’re always going over things we can do better,” Calgary’s captain Marc Giordano told Flames TV after Tuesday’s practice.Article continues below ...“The last couple of days (of practice) there’s been a lot of work done on our forecheck and moving the puck as defensemen to our forwards.“We want to play with confidence. We think we’re a good team but we just need to keep bringing the same game every night. The biggest thing in this league is consistency. We need to bring it every night.”The Stars (12-10-3) are fifth in the Central Division after a 1-0 overtime loss in Edmonton on Tuesday.Consistency has eluded Calgary’s No. 1 goaltender Mike Smith this season. Through 14 games Custom New Jersey Devils Jerseys , Smith’s recorded a poor 3.29 goals-against average and .883 save percentage. The rough start has left the 36-year-old battling to keep his starting job ahead of David Rittich, who has a 2.04 GAA through 12 contests.Smith got the net against his former team Sunday and was solid in a 6-1 victory over the Coyotes in Arizona. He came off the ice Tuesday and spoke positively for the first time in a long time.“You understand it’s just one game,” Smith told Flames TV. “It’s a definitely a work in progress. Every day you come to the rink and want to get better and find some consistencies in your game. “Last game was definitely a better game for myself but the team played outstanding in front of me. It definitely was a confidence builder and I want to just come to the rink today and keep it going.”The Stars have lost four straight on the road (0-3-1).Dallas has been going with No. 2 goalie Anton Khudobin because Ben Bishop has been out for a week after suffering a muscle strain in New York last week. Bishop could be back in the net Saturday in Vancouver.It’s possible the Stars will give Landon Bow his first NHL start in Calgary on Wednesday. The 23-year-old was called up from the American Hockey League when Bishop was hurt.Khudobin started all four games in Bishop’s place and has allowed 13 goals in that time. He played back-to-back last Friday and Saturday.Stars head coach Jim Montgomery was non-committal before Tuesday’s game, however.“We haven’t thought that far ahead,” he told Sportsday. “Dobby said that it was the first time he played back-to-back in four years and he felt great. I thought he was actually better in the second game than he was the first. We’ll see how he goes tonight and make a decision tomorrow.”The Flames made a minor trade Tuesday. They acquired defensemen Andrew Nielsen , who hails from nearby Red Deer, Alberta, from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for forward Morgan Klimchuk. Both players have been toiling in the American Hockey League this season.

Tkachuk sent a cross-ice pass to Brodie, who beat Carter Hart to give the Pacific Division leaders the win.Johnny Gaudreau scored his 24th goal for the Flames, whose 56 points are tops in the Western Conference. David Rittich made 32 saves after missing the previous two games with a lower-body injury.Travis Sanheim and Travis Konecny scored for Philadelphia, which dropped its season-worst sixth straight game.WILD 4, SENATORS 3OTTAWA Ryan Murray Jersey , Ontario (AP) — Jared Spurgeon scored twice to lead Minnesota to the victory.Jordan Greenway and Zach Parise also scored for the Wild (20-17-3), who improved to 2-0 on a four-game trip.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Max Domi heard the rumors that the Arizona Coyotes might trade him this offseason. Even so, when learning he was being sent to Montreal for Alex Galchenyuk Sergei Bobrovsky Jersey , the news came as a bit of a shock.”I’m really excited to start the new chapter,” Domi said during a conference call Saturday. ”Of course I was a little bit shocked, but it’s a lot of emotion, some sadness, and mostly excitement and goodness. So I can’t wait to get started. I’m absolutely pumped.”Domi at least heard the news firsthand. Galchenyuk found out on flight to Italy for vacation when he used the plane’s Wi-Fi to check Twitter.”It was a lot of emotions. It’s something I’ve never experienced in my life before,” he said on a conference call. ”I never really asked for a trade. I loved being in Montreal. I loved playing there Womens Seth Jones Jersey , but obviously when you’re hearing your name in rumors for the last couple of years, you kind of knew that something might happen.”The Canadiens didn’t waste any time locking up Domi, whose entry-level contract is up. Montreal signed the skilled forward to a two-year deal that averages $3.15 million.Domi had been seen as a cornerstone as the Coyotes try to turn the corner back into a playoff team. The 23-year-old forward was one of the NHL’s best rookies after Arizona selected him with the 12th overall pick in in 2013, scoring 18 goals with 34 assists in 2015-16.Domi struggled with injuries his sophomore season and got off to a slow start this past season before finishing with nine goals and 36 assists.The Habs, like the Coyotes with Galchenyuk, are hoping that a change of scenery will provide a spark.”I remember him at the world juniors Sonny Milano Jersey , he was one of the best players on the ice every night, so there’s a lot there,” Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin said. ”To me, it’s untapped. Sometimes a change of address brings the best in a player and especially him wanting to be in a hockey market, I think he’ll thrive here in Montreal.”The Coyotes unloaded one of their top players to get a proven scorer and potentially fill a hole in their lineup.Galchenyuk was a center coming up through juniors, but primarily played wing for the Canadiens. The Coyotes are looking for the 24-year-old to play in the middle and hopefully provide some scoring punch for one of the NHL’s lowest-scoring teams the past few seasons.”We were looking for a guy that can score some goals for us ,” Coyotes GM John Chayka said. ”We were looking for someone to add some versatility, has some experience playing up the middle, has potential to play up the middle and give us some depth at that position. I think Alex obviously checks all of those boxes.”Galchenyuk signed a three-year $14.7 million contract in July 2017 that carries a salary cap hit of $4.9 million per season.

The first winter storm of the season had Anthony Beauvillier excited about facing the New York Islanders‘ cross-town rival Womens Corey Perry Jersey , and he broke out of a season-long scoring slump in a big way.Beauvillier had three goals and an assist, and the Islanders held off the Rangers 7-5 on Thursday night to keep up their recent mastery in the series.“I was pretty pumped before the game,” the Quebec native said. “It was snowing outside, felt like Christmas. And playing the Rangers is always fun. It feels good to get the win.”Beauvillier, who had one goal in 16 games this season, got his first career hat trick and first four-point game. The Islanders, second in the Metropolitan Division, won for the seventh time in 10 games and remained perfect in seven games against division teams this season.“It’s always tough mentally,” he said of his struggles. “If you don’t play good and the team’s losing it’s harder, but the team’s been winning and the locker room is great.”Leo Komarov had a goal and an assist Kyle Brodziak Jersey Womens , and Anders Lee, Brock Nelson and Cal Clutterbuck also scored as the Islanders beat the Rangers for the 12th time in 13 meetings since the start of 2015-16 season. Valtteri Filppula had three assists, Nick Leddy added two, and Thomas Greiss stopped 36 shots.Chris Kreider had two goals and Fredrik Claesson and Filip Chytil also scored for the Rangers, who were 6-0-1 in their last seven. Henrik Lundqvist gave up five goals on 17 shots through the first two periods. Alexandar Georgiev replaced him to start the third and had five saves.“They had three tap-ins when they were standing next to a guy,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “We didn’t pick sticks up. … They scored way too easily.”Komarov scored midway through the third to give the Islanders a 6-3 lead after trailing 2-0 less than six minutes into the game.Kreider’s second power-play goal of the night with 6:47 left pulled the Rangers back within two, and Chytil scored with 2 1/2 minutes remaining to make it 6-5.The Rangers pulled Georgiev for an extra skater with a little more than two minutes remaining but couldn’t get the equalizer. Clutterbuck sealed the win with an empty-netter with 21 seconds left.“These division games are huge,” Lee said. “Anytime we can get two and keep them to zero is huge.”Beauvillier put the Islanders ahead 3-2 with his second of the night when he skated in on a breakaway and beat Lundqvist at 2:24 of the second period.However, the Rangers tied it with a short-handed goal 57 seconds later as Hayes beat Greiss from the left circle with his fourth. It was the first short-handed goal allowed by the Islanders this season.Beauvillier put the Islanders back ahead for good when he deflected Johnny Boychuk’s shot past Lundqvist on a power play at 5:13.The Islanders, 2 for 24 on the power play in their previous six games Jakob Silfverberg Jersey , got their second of the night with the man advantage. Lee deflected Leddy’s point shot down past Lundqvist for his sixth with just under six minutes left in the middle period to push the lead to 5-3.NOTES: Kreider played in his 400th regular season game. … Rangers F Vladislav Namestnikov played in his 300th game. … The Rangers’ Mika Zibanejad had an assist on Kreider’s goal, giving him 15 points (eight assists) in his last 15 games. … Islanders placed forwards Casey Cizikas and Andrew Ladd on IR retroactive to Tuesday. F Matt Martin, who missed the previous five games due to an upper-body injury, was placed on IR retroactive to Nov. 1. … Beauvillier now has six goals and six assists in seven career games against the Rangers. … Filppula has 17 assists and 21 points in 21 games against the Rangers. … Nelson has eight goals and 12 points in his last 12 games.UP NEXTRangers: Host Florida on Saturday night.Ha Islanders: Host Dallas on Sunday. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — Martin Jones could come up with only so many saves against the NHL’s second-ranked power play before the Florida Panthers finally broke through.Mike Hoffman scored a tiebreaking goal after San Jose was penalized for too many men on the ice late in the second period, and the Panthers denied the Sharks a chance to clinch a playoff berth with a 4-2 victory Thursday night.“You give any team that many power plays, they’ll probably score one eventually,” Hoffman said. “We were able to get one.”Hoffman also set up Frank Vatrano’s insurance goal in the third to send the Panthers to their third straight win following a six-game skid. Jamie McGinn and Dryden Hunt also scored for the Panthers, and rookie Sam Montembeault made 26 saves to win his first career road start.Florida moved within seven points of Columbus for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot but has just 12 games left to make up that margin.“We’re not out of it yet. We know it’s a long way to get there but we’re concentrating on winning every game,” coach Bob Boughner said. “We’re not giving up to the end. We’re going to fight. It’s too bad we’re in this position , obviously first half of the season, that’s why. Since January we’ve been a good hockey team and we’ll try to continue to do that.”Melker Karlsson and Kevin Labanc scored for the Sharks, who had their six-game winning streak snapped. San Jose looked tired playing for the third time in four nights and missed an opportunity to become the first team in the Western Conference to clinch a postseason slot.More importantly, the Sharks failed to increase their one-point lead over second-place Calgary in the Pacific Division race. The Flames have one game in hand.“Way too many penalties tonight,” Logan Couture said. “They have a good power play and they made us pay. And we were sloppy on the PK, too. We didn’t look good. We looked slow. The energy level I’m sure looked low and we have to find a way to play better than that.”Jones made 23 saves in San Jose’s second regulation loss at home since Dec. 20.The Panthers took control of the game in the second period when they scored twice for a 3-2 lead. They tied it early in the period when Riley Sheahan won a faceoff just outside the offensive zone to Troy Brouwer, who fed Hunt for his second goal in two games after scoring none through the first 32 of his career.Florida kept up the pressure from there but Jones managed to turn away several chances with the Sharks short-handed for more than three minutes after a double-minor to Couture.But the Panthers then capitalized on a bad line change late in the period that led to a penalty for too many men on the ice. Keith Yandle passed the puck to Hoffman, who beat Jones with a slap shot from the top of the circle for his 32nd goal of the season.Hoffman was a member of the Sharks for a few hours back in June when he was acquired by San Jose in a deal from Ottawa before being almost immediately shipped to the Panthers in a move that helped create the salary cap room that eventually brought Erik Karlsson to San Jose. Fans even displayed a mock retired Sharks banner for Hoffman.“I appreciate the respect from the fans there,” Hoffman said. “I’ll try to reach out and contact the fan to get that from him.”Vatrano’s goal midway through the third gave the Panthers a cushion and capped his happy 25th birthday.NOTES: Florida has won seven of eight in San Jose. … Sharks D Radim Simek will need surgery to repair a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. … San Jose forward Evander Kane remains sidelined for personal reasons. He said Thursday that he and his wife recently lost a child during pregnancy .UP NEXTFlorida: Visits the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.San Jose: Hosts the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

WINNIPEG Martin Frk Jersey , Manitoba –Jets have yet to show the form that propelled them to the second-best record in the NHL last season, but they’re finding ways to win until everybody is all on the same flight path.The Jets defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-3 on Saturday night, pushing their record to 5-2-1, but it was hardly a Picasso or a Rembrandt. In artistic terms, this game was more like dogs playing poker.The Jets were outshot 45-32, including 16-6 in the first period. The latter statistic, however, flattered the home team, who went 14 minutes between their second and third shots of the frame. (During four of those minutes, the Jets were short-handed.)Article continues below ...Defenseman Jacob Trouba, who has been handling the puck like it’s a hand grenade all month long, had arguably his best game of the season , picking up a career-high three assists. He told The Winnipeg Sun that he was happy to see defensemen Tyler Myers and Josh Morrissey as well as winger Mathieu Perreault notch their first goals of the season.“When everyone gets a goal, it feels pretty good when they score,” he said. “It’s good to see. You want to see everyone jump in and get in there. It’s great to see a lot of names on the scoresheet.”Morrissey and left winger Kyle Connor are tied for the team lead in points with seven ahead of the early-season favorites Mark Scheifele, Blake Wheeler and Patrik Laine.If nothing else, the game against the Coyotes proved that back-up goalie Laurent Brossoit is the real deal and can provide some much-needed rest for starter Connor Hellebuyck during the season. He stopped 42 shots for his second victory of the season.“We had a little lull in the first (period) and he was there to back us up, especially on those penalty kills,” Trouba said of Brossoit.“Both games he’s played he’s been extremely good and when (Hellebuyck’s) been in, he’s been good. You definitely can’t look at the goaltenders and expect much more.”The Blues come to town having lost three of their last four but their win on Saturday night, boosting their record to 2-3-2, did most of Canada a favor. By defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-1, handing the Leafs their second consecutive defeat, they forced most national sports television and radio shows to talk about something other than the Leafs being the odds-on favorite to win the Stanley Cup next spring and break every offensive record in the process.Blues coach Mike Yeo was pleased with the efforts by his troops Nick Jensen Jersey , who kept the Leafs – the highest-scoring team in the league – off the scoreboard until the third period. They also outshot the Leafs 25-23.“That looked a lot more like the St. Louis Blues. The guys came out [and] gave us a great response,” he said in a post-game scrum.The Leafs visit the Jets on Wednesday. Washington Capitals (42-23-7, second in the Metropolitan Division) vs. New Jersey Devils (27-37-9, eighth in the Metropolitan Division)Newark, New Jersey; Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. EDTBOTTOM LINE: New Jersey plays Washington looking to end its three-game home skid.The Devils are 8-14-3 against the rest of their division.

Washington ranks third in the Eastern Conference recording 9.3 points per game, averaging 3.4 goals and 5.9 assists.
