a sweet 2-on-1 attack that stunned Neuv • Absender: elaine95, 21.03.2019 03:14

The Los Angeles Kings are finally playing the way many expected this season www.officialhurricanes.com , and they’ll bring a season-long four-game winning streak into their matchup against the visiting Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday at Staples Center.The Kings defeated the Golden Knights 4-3 in overtime on Sunday and return to Las Vegas again Tuesday for the fourth and final meeting between these teams this season. Los Angeles also beat visiting Vegas 5-1 on Dec. 8.“We’re trying to just take it one game at a time, quite honestly,” Kings forward Dustin Brown said after scoring the go-ahead goal in a 2-1 win Thursday night against the visiting Arizona Coyotes. “We put ourselves in a pretty big hole.”Article continues below ...The Kings (15-20-3) were 4-8-1 when they fired coach John Stevens on Nov. 4, and just 5-8 in the first 13 games under Willie Desjardins. They won three games in a row for the first time this season when they defeated the Golden Knights last weekend.The Pacific Division is a lot tighter among the top teams in the standings than it was last season, leaving the Kings just eight points behind the final playoff spot heading into Friday. Brown, one of a handful of core players for the Kings who won Stanley Cup titles in 2012 and 2014, said it’s too early to start thinking about playoff positioning.“I think it’s more important for our group, especially the young guys on our team Carolina Hurricanes T-Shirts Authentic , to understand how we need to play to win,” Brown said. “We didn’t do it for a big stretch of games early. I think we have played better. I thought (Thursday) was not our best game. It’s more important that we start to learn. We have a lot of new guys with not a lot of experience of what it takes to win at this level.”Vegas (21-15-4) reached the Stanley Cup Finals in their first year of existence last season. The Golden Knights haven’t been as hot through the first half as they were last season, when they accumulated 58 points (28-10-2) through the first 40 games.Vegas made one of the biggest offseason acquisitions in the NHL when they traded for left wing Max Pacioretty, a five-time 30-goal scorer with the Montreal Canadiens. Pacioretty had 10 goals in 30 games with Vegas but sustained a lower-body injury against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Dec. 17 and has missed the past four games.Pacioretty is eligible to come off injured reserve against the Kings, but the Golden Knights may not rush him back, especially with how his replacement on the second line, Brandon Pirri, has been playing lately.Pirri has four goals and an assist in five games in December. He was called up from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League for the second time this month on Thursday and scored the game-winner midway through the third period of a 2-1 win against the visiting Colorado Avalanche.“If I’m going to contribute Carolina Hurricanes Hoodies Authentic , it’s going to be scoring goals,” Pirri told reporters afterward. “My confidence never wavered. I always believed in myself. This is just another opportunity to prove myself.” PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Flyers tried to make their annual Halloween game a festive occasion — popular mascot Gritty judged the costume contests during intermissions — but the only boos came from disgruntled fans each time Philly skated off the ice.The Islanders‘ romp started early, and they seemed right at home against the listless Flyers.Brock Nelson scored two goals, Anders Lee had a goal and two assists and Robin Lehner stopped 22 shots to lead New York past Philadelphia 6-1 on Saturday.Leo Komarov and Anthony Beauvillier also scored to help the Islanders take a 3-0 lead through two periods in a game between teams near the bottom of the Eastern Conference. Nelson scored in the first and third periods in his third straight game with a goal.“It doesn’t always have to be goals, just chances,” Nelson said. “If you can feed off of that, you can suffocate teams.”The Islanders opened a three-game road trip. They play eight of their first 11 games on the road this season.The Flyers were loose with the puck, sagged on defense and stopped skating hard after pucks in the defensive zone. A playoff team last season Carolina Hurricanes Hats Authentic , Philadelphia has lost three straight games and four of five overall.Coach Dave Hakstol remains on the hot seat in his fourth season, and the Flyers (4-7) await what could be a make-or-break four-game trip out West.Maybe a road trip will give a needed boost to a Flyers team that has already lost four home games.“We tightened up in this building,” Hakstol said.The Islanders weren’t terribly impressive either, but they were efficient, scoring two goals on their first six shots and three on the first 12.Michal Neuvirth wasn’t much help in net in his first start since last year. Neuvirth was out with an unspecified injury and the Flyers got little production from Brian Elliott and Calvin Pickard in his absence.The Flyers coughed up the puck and Komarov capitalized with a tip-in for a 1-0 lead in the first. The Flyers had another turnover later in the period and Jordan Eberle fed Beauvillier for a 2-0 lead.Nelson made it 3-0 on a sweet 2-on-1 attack that stunned Neuvirth and pretty much sealed the win.“Our bounces are not going our way, but the season is long and we have to stick together,” Neuvirth said. “We’ve got a good team in here.”It’s hard to tell. The Flyers’ core of Claude Giroux, Wayne Simmonds and Jake Voracek has done little to prove the franchise can ever become serious contenders and — with more games like this one — general manager Ron Hextall will have to decide if he wants to shake up the roster or make a move behind the bench. Or both.“I really feel like we’re pressing right now. We’re just tired of losing so we’re trying to do everything we can to make something happen Custom Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys , but sometimes it’s not always the right thing,” Giroux said.Adam Pelech made it 4-1 and Nelson had his first multigoal game of the season, bringing out chants of “Fire Hakstol!”Jori Lehtera scored for the Flyers in their third straight game with one or fewer goals. Hakstol shuffled his lines all game and no combination worked.Lee made it 6-1 on a power-play goal that Neuvirth barely swiped at and the fans that stuck around could only boo.“We want to keep creating those opportunities,” Lee said. “The more chances we get, the more are going to go in. It kind of culminated tonight.”NOTES: Flyers C Corban Knight left with an unspecified injury.UP NEXTIslanders: Play Sunday at Carolina.Flyers: Open the road trip Tuesday at Anaheim. The Flyers also will play the Kings, Sharks and Coyotes.
