VANCOUVER Womens Mark Scheifele Jersey , British Columbia (AP) — It took 18 games for Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine to finally break loose.After having scored just one even-strength goal heading into Monday’s game, Laine recorded a hat trick and led Winnipeg to a 6-3 win over the Vancouver Canucks.Laine put the puck into an empty net with less than two minutes to go seal the victory.“I’m not going to say it out loud but obviously it’s bothering because you’re not producing five-on-five,” the 20-year-old Laine said.“But when you stay patient and work hard you are going to get rewarded like I got rewarded tonight. … And from now on, if I don’t score in the next 20 (games) 5-on-5, I am not going to lose it. I am just going to stay patient and keep working hard.”Bryan Little, Mark Scheifele, Kyle Connor also scored for Winnipeg.“He is really hard on himself and wants to get better at every aspect of his game,” Little said of Laine. “For him it’s just staying positive and not being so hard on himself.”Elias Pettersson, Tyler Motte and Nikolay Goldobin scored for Vancouver Mathieu Perreault Jersey , which lost its sixth straight game.Connor Hellebuyck stopped 22 shots for the Jets. Jacob Markstrom made 43 saves for the Canucks.The Jets had 49 shots on goal, the most allowed by Vancouver in a game this season.But Vancouver head coach Travis Green said he still saw positives in his team’s performance, especially after going down 4-1 in the second period.“We made a game of it,” Green said. “I didn’t expect them to just lay down. We’ve talked about how we want to play. And part of how we want to play is when it’s hard. When you’re up against it a little bit, you’ve got to dig deep and play.”Winnipeg opened the scoring just over a minute in after Markstrom tried to clear the puck along the boards. Little collected the puck at the point and hammered it in as Markstrom slid back into his net.The Canucks responded with a power-play goal after Dustin Byfuglien was called for slashing.Goldobin sent a behind-the-back pass to defenseman Ben Hutton, who fed Pettersson. The Canucks’ rookie fired a shot past Hellebuyck, tying the game.Pettersson now has 12 goals in his first 17 NHL games.Markstrom faced a barrage of 23 shots in the opening period, including a hard wrister from Nikolaj Ehlers that went off his blocker.The rebound popped out to the side and Scheifele poked it in to give the Jets a 2-1 lead.Winnipeg added another first-period goal when Connor scored on a power play. Connor’s point streak (four goals, three assists) is at five games.Midway through the second period Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey , Pettersson and Hutton collided while trying to clear the puck from in front of the Vancouver net.Laine collected the puck and got off a quick wrist shot that sailed past Markstrom to make it 4-1 for the Jets.Motte got one back for the Canucks, scoring his second goal of the year on a short-handed breakaway.It was Goldobin who brought Vancouver within one. The right-winger slid the puck across the crease, forcing Hellebuyck to sprawl, then tucked it into the net behind the netminder’s skate.NOTES: Laine registered two goals in the third period for the sixth three-goal game of his career.UP NEXTJets: At Calgary on Wednesday.Canucks: At Anaheim on Wednesday. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) The San Jose Sharks acquired forward Evander Kane from the Buffalo Sabres on Monday in a move to upgrade their depleted forward group.The Sharks dealt conditional first and fourth-round picks in 2019 and prospect Danny O’Regan to the Sabres to add a high-scoring winger just before the trade deadline.San Jose never replaced forward Patrick Marleau after he left as a free agent last July for Toronto, waiting for the right moment to add a top-six forward.With center Joe Thornton sidelined with a knee injury and the Sharks fighting for a playoff spot, general manager Doug Wilson pounced at the deadline.”We certainly really like his game, like his ingredients and everything,” Wilson said. ”We get to get him in here http://www.jetsshoppro.com/authentic-patrik-laine-jersey , let’s get to know each other and go from there.”He is in the final season of a $31.5 million, six-year contract and is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The Sharks plan to wait until after the season to discuss a long-term deal.If Kane doesn’t sign with San Jose this summer, the first-round pick in 2019 becomes a second-rounder, unless the Sharks win the Stanley Cup. San Jose also has the option of keeping the fourth-round pick in 2019 and trading a 2020 third-rounder instead.”It was a difficult market for rentals,” Sabres general manager Jason Botterill said. ”I think the younger players in the league certainly got a good reward, players with term certainly got a good reward.”But it was a scenario where we had a lot of conversations out there and certainly a lot of interest, but I think you saw with the rental market for rental players it was more of a difficult market than previous years.”The Sharks began the day in second place in the Pacific Division, one point ahead of Anaheim and two in front of Calgary. They rank 16th in the league in scoring with 178 goals and had just four goals in losing the final three games on a recent road trip that ended with a 3-2 overtime loss in Minnesota.San Jose has no power-play goals in its past nine games, failing on all 20 opportunities.Kane has 20 goals and 20 assists in 61 games for the Sabres Brian Gibbons Jersey Womens , but has scored just five goals in his past 26 contests. The nine-year veteran has 177 goals and 163 assists in 557 games but has never made the postseason.”This is a great opportunity,” he said. ”Excitement probably doesn’t do it enough justice too how I feel. I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to possibly play in the playoffs and add as much as I can to that group and help get us in there and hopefully go on a long run.”Kane’s departure from Buffalo was inevitable given his status as an upcoming free agent this summer. The Sabres are in rebuilding mode in Botterill’s first year and are in last place in the Eastern Conference.Kane arrived in Buffalo as the centerpiece of a blockbuster trade under former general manager Tim Murray in February 2015 when Buffalo sent defenseman Tyler Myers, forward Drew Stafford, two prospects and a first-round pick to Winnipeg in exchange for Kane, defenseman Zach Bogosian and a prospect.Kane hit the 20-goal mark in each of his three seasons with the Sabres, including a team-best 28 goals in 2016-17.Though Kane has produced on the ice when healthy and been active in working with Buffalo-area charitable groups, he has been questioned for his immaturity off the ice.Kane has had two legal run-ins, including being arrested for grabbing three women by the hair and neck during an altercation at a Buffalo bar in June 2016. The charges were eventually dismissed on condition Kane stayed out of trouble as part of a plea agreement in which a prosecutor described the player’s behavior as ”arrogant, boorish and surly Jaroslav Halak Jersey Womens , but not criminal.”Earlier that year, the Sabres suspended Kane for one game for missing practice a day after pictures surfaced on social media of the player celebrating in Toronto after attending the NBA All-Star Game.”We’re not talking about last week or last month. We’re talking about a number of years ago,” Kane said. ”I’ve grown up a lot since then and I’ve moved on from it and I think I’ve shown that over the course of the last two or three years. It’s something I’ve put behind me.”O’Regan has no goals and four assists in 19 games this season with San Jose. He was a linemate at Boston University with Sabres star Jack Eichel and forward Evan Rodrigues.—AP Hockey Writer John Wawrow and freelancer Mark Ludwiczak in Buffalo, New York, contributed to this report—
