#1 league with a 3.86 goals-against von elaine95 21.03.2019 02:24

The Vegas Golden Knights had a day in between experiencing the high of stopping a five-game losing streak against the Washington Capitals to returning to the ice Thursday night against the struggling Chicago Blackhawks.Chicago (9-15-5) has less than 24 hours from its turnaround from a 4-2 loss at Anaheim on Wednesday night. The Blackhawks are on a five-game losing streak while Vegas has won six of its last seven games.The Golden Knights (15-13-1) put an end to Washington’s dominance over them dating to the Stanley Cup Finals with a 5-3 win Tuesday behind two goals by defenseman Nate Schmidt in the final 1:24 at the game at T-Mobile Arena.Article continues below ...“That was an intense game Richard Panik Jersey , a lot of emotion, a lot of things blowing over from the (Stanley Cup Final). Our penalty-kill guys did a great job,” Schmidt said. “(Coach Gerard Gallant) came in here after the second period, and hasn’t done this much, but really challenged our guys to go have a better third period, and up and down our lineup, guys responded, and that’s the most important part about this game.“It was a big win, an emotional win, and I like the way our team responded to that challenge.”Cody Eakin and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare had goals 16 seconds apart in the third period for the Knights Womens Shane Doan Jersey , who played without left wing Max Pacioretty. He was out with an illness but is expected back against Chicago.Schmidt scored the go-ahead goal on the power play against his former team with 1:24 remaining. He crossed the blue line and made a quick move to his forehand before he buried a shot past Braden Holtby’s glove.Schmidt added an empty-net goal with 6.9 seconds left and the T-Mobile Arena crowd went crazy, especially after the Capitals celebrated their Stanley Cup championship at that venue after winning Game 5.Vegas won at Chicago 8-3 in the first meeting last Tuesday. The eight goals (including two goals each for Eakin and Shea Theodore) are a franchise record and the victory extended the Golden Knights’ winning streak to four games at the time.In that game, Chicago forward Dylan Strome scored in his debut with the Blackhawks. Corey Crawford made 24 saves on 30 shots before being relieved at the start of the third period by Cam Ward, who made 11 saves.“I think you put yourselves in a hole and it’s hard to score in this league,” said Strome, who was acquired along with Brendan Perlini from the Arizona Coyotes in exchange for Nick Schmaltz. “Sometimes if you’re opening up chances because you got down 3-0, it ends up in the back of your net.”Blackhawks defenseman Brent Seabrook added, “We’ve got to be better from the puck drop. We’ve just got to be better. It’s just not acceptable to be playing the way we’re playing. Starting off games (like the loss against the Golden Knights last week), obviously that puts us behind and we’re fighting back the rest of the game.” GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Coyotes‘ homestand couldn’t be any better. The Philadelphia Flyers‘ road trip could get a whole lot better Monday night.The surprising Coyotes take their first five-game winning streak since the 2011-12 season — coincidentally Anders Bjork Jersey , the last time they made the playoffs — into their interconference game against the Flyers at Gila River Arena.Arizona (7-5-0) has won six of seven since being shut out three times while starting 1-4. The Coyotes will be trying for their first six-game winning streak since that 2011-12 season, when they had three winning streaks of five games or longer, and looking to close out a 5-0 homestand.Article continues below ...Before that string of home games began, coach Rick Tocchet stressed the importance of establishing a home ice advantage — and, perhaps, doing away with any lingering memories from an 0-10-1 start a season ago.But even Tocchet probably didn’t envision the Coyotes outscoring their opponents 24-7 during the first four games, or getting at least one short-handed goal in every game. They have six short-handed goals during the homestand, the longest such streak in franchise history, and an NHL-leading seven altogether.“I like the fact that we’re a hard-working team. For the most part, I’ve got to tell you Bobby Orr Jersey , we’ve worked really hard,” Tocchet said. “We’ve defended well and we’re getting really good goaltending. Our identity for me is a team that defends well and can transition well.”The Flyers (6-7-1) can’t say the same thing. Their penalty kill is a problem, allowing at least one power-play goal in seven consecutive games. They have allowed a league-high 16 power-play goals, while Arizona has given up a league-low three power-play goals. The Coyotes have more short-handed goals (7) than they do power-play goals allowed.Despite their penalty-killing issues, the Flyers opened their four-game western road trip by defeating the Anaheim Ducks 3-2 and the Los Angeles Kings 5-2 before losing 4-3 in overtime to the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.One concern is starting goaltender Brian Elliott’s status. Backup Cal Pickard played Saturday, and Elliott was expected to play Monday night until leaving practice early Sunday following a collision with Travis Konecny.Earlier in the trip, backup goalie Michal Neuvirth returned to Philadelphia with a lower-body injury, and he isn’t expected to be available until next weekend at least.Despite the injuries, the Flyers could return home with five of a possible six points on the trip if they can win Monday. General manager Ron Hextall said the road trip will be viewed by the result of the Arizona game.Win, and it’s a great trip. Lose http://www.officialbruinsproonline.com/authentic-adidas-brad-marchand-jersey , and it’s an OK one.“I think our commitment to defense, our cleanliness has been better,” Hextall told reporters Sunday. “It really comes down to an attitude. When players are dialed in, players are playing hard, playing the right way, all the analytics, all the numbers, your feel for the game is good. That’s what it’s about.”One set of numbers jumps out: The Flyers goaltenders are third from the bottom in the league with a 3.86 goals-against average; the Coyotes lead the league with a 2.00 average. Antti Raanta has started all but two Coyotes games, which Darcy Kuemper played, and Raanta (2.10 goals-against average) is expected to start Monday.Raanta made a career-high 48 saves as the Coyotes withstood 51 shots by Carolina Youth Brandon Carlo Jersey , and squandering a three-goal lead, by defeating the Hurricanes 4-3 Friday on Michael Grabner’s overtime goal.“Last year around December until now, he (Raanta) has just been terrific,” Tocchet said. “He’s a leader. You could put a ‘C’ on his chest, he’s that type of guy. … He’s done whatever it takes to be that guy and he wants to be that guy. He gives us a chance every night.”The Coyotes ended their season-opening 11-game losing streak last season by winning at Philadelphia 4-3 on Oct. 30. The Flyers then won in overtime at Arizona 4-3 on Feb. 10.
