CALGARY Alan Quine Jersey Womens , Alberta (AP) — Elias Lindholm is having a breakout season with Calgary.Lindholm scored twice, including the tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, and the Flames rallied from two down to beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 on Saturday night.After deflecting Noah Hanifin’s point shot into Mikko Koskinen’s pads, Lindholm knocked in the rebound at 9:10 of the third. He added an empty-netter for his team-leading 11th goal — his career high is 17 set in 2014-15.“He’s a high-end player. He has been his whole life,” Flames coach Bill Peters said. “Takes faceoffs, kills penalties, can play 4-on-4, plays on the power play. He touches the game in a lot of different areas.”Lindholm, acquired from Carolina in the offseason, was drafted fifth overall in 2013, one spot ahead of linemate Sean Monahan.Monahan, with a goal and an assist, and Derek Ryan also scored for Calgary.Connor McDavid and Alex Chiasson scored for Edmonton, which has lost five of six.Down 2-1 entering the third period, Calgary tied it at 2:40 when Monahan rattled home a rebound of Travis Hamonic’s shot.It was the sixth time the Flames have come back to win when trailing after two periods, most in the NHL.“A lot of times we play unreal in the third, but you don’t want to chase the game too much Petr Mrazek Jersey Womens ,” Lindholm said. “It’s not going to work all the time to be down before the third. It’s something we need to work on.”The Flames were down 2-0 before Ryan ended a 14-game scoring drought with his second of the season at 16:23 of the second period.Until then, the Flames’ listless power play had given up just as many shots as it had generated, with two of the three allowed being breakaways.Standing tall in net was David Rittich, who improved to 6-1-0. Included in his 24 stops were three breakaways — two for Leon Draisaitl and one by Jujhar Khaira.“It’s my job. It’s a great feeling, but that’s why I’m in the net — making saves,” Rittich said.With fellow goalie Mike Smith struggling, Rittich delivered the type of quality start Calgary needed after dropping three of its previous four games.“He was huge. There were a couple breakaways and odd-man rushes. He made some big stops. When that happens it makes you want to go hard,” Monahan said.Koskinen, who turned aside 33 shots, fell to 4-2-0.“It felt like we ran out of gas a little bit. We spent the whole third in our own zone,” he said.Edmonton increased its lead to 2-0 at 3:49 of the second when Draisaitl set up McDavid on a perfectly executed 2-on-1. Rittich had no chance to get across and stop the one-timer.The Oilers took the lead 2:29 into the game while short-handed. Playing against his former team, Chiasson broke in off the wing and slipped a backhand through Rittich’s pads.It was a physical game, especially early, with Mikael Backlund and McDavid wrestling at one point. Sam Bennett and Darnell Nurse squared off after Bennett, on the first shift of the game, rocked the Oilers defenseman with a heavy hit.Matthew Tkachuk was in the middle of the action, getting jumped by Zack Kassian late in the first period Jordan Schroeder Jersey Womens , which drew a triple minor for roughing and a misconduct on the Oilers’ rugged forward.“We had an opportunity to go ahead two or three and that may have changed the game, on some of the breakaways, but their goaltender played well,” Edmonton coach Todd McLellan said.“Too many penalties. Their top players didn’t have to play a lot of hard minutes. They were on the power play the whole first two (periods), so by the time you get to the third, they have some gas left in their tanks and they certainly took it to us.”NOTES: Dillon Dube (concussion) returned to the lineup after missing four games. … Ryan Spooner made his debut for Edmonton after being acquired Friday in a trade with the New York Rangers for Ryan Strome. Spooner played left wing on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Ty Rattie. … Right wing Patrick Russell made his NHL debut for the Oilers.UP NEXTOilers: Return home to play Vegas on Sunday night.Flames: Continue their homestand Monday night against Vegas. TAMPA, Fla. (AP) It’s great to play well, even better to win.That’s how the Tampa Bay Lightning view a 2-0 series lead over the New Jersey Devils.”As a coach, you care about everything. You’d like to say you played the perfect game, but somebody else has a vote out there,” coach Jon Cooper said Saturday after a 5-3 victory in Game 2 of the first-round matchup.”When we wake up tomorrow, you look back and say: `OK, which parts of the game did we do well.’ And we’ll be able to look at a lot of that tape and say we did really well. And we’ll look at some and say that wasn’t so good,” Cooper added. ”I’m pretty sure New Jersey is going to do the exact same thing. It’s the playoffs. There’s going to be battles, there’s going to be swings of momentum, but the big thing for me is who won the game.”Alex Killorn scored twice during a four-goal second period, and Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 18 shots in the final period to hold off the pesky Devils.”We did bend a little bit in the third but didn’t break Matt Calvert Jersey Womens , so it’s a good feeling to be up 2-0,” Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman said. ”You’ve got to win the game. That’s the bottom line.”The Atlantic Division champions scored three times in a 2:47 span in the second period, and the reeling Devils pulled goalie Keith Kinkaid after Killorn’s third goal in two games made it 5-1 with 6:48 remaining in the period.Kinkaid, whose stellar play since January helped New Jersey finish strong and claim its first playoff berth since 2012, yielded five goals on 15 shots.Nikita Kucherov, Brayden Point and Tyler Johnson also scored for Tampa Bay, which is up 2-0 in the series after going 0-2-1 against the Devils during the regular season.Game 3 is Monday night in Newark, New Jersey.The Devils have played well in spurts, overcoming slow starts to keep both games interesting.”There’s a lot of good things in our game to like,” Devils leading scorer Taylor Hall said. ”It’s a long series. They still have to win two more to put us out, and we’re going to battle on home ice to get that back.”Devils coach John Hynes echoed that sentiment.”We have to embrace the fact that we’re down 2-0,” Hynes said. ”What I mean by that is we can say we had strong pushes in certain things, but I think we did take a step tonight. We have to win one game. We’ve got to play good once, and we’ve got to have that on Monday.”Vasilevskiy stopped 41 shots, while limiting the Devils to rookie Nico Hischier’s unassisted goal in the opening period and Sami Vatanen’s sixth career playoff goal late in the second before Blake Coleman’s third-period tally trimmed Tampa Bay’s lead to 5-3 with eight minutes left.Goalie Cory Schneider came off the bench to help the Devils stay in the game with 10 saves, nine in the final period.Hynes wasn’t ready to discuss whether he’ll change starting goaltenders for the next game. Kinkaid was a big part of New Jersey’s success after Schneider went down with groin and hip injuries in January, earning the right to start his first playoff series.”I thought Cory came in and played really well Cale Makar Jersey Womens ,” Hynes said. ”I’m not going to speculate on whether we’re going to use him or not use him.”Five players scored in the Lightning’s 5-2 victory in Game 1, with just one of the goals coming from the team’s top line of Kucherov, Steven Stamkos and J.T. Miller – Kucherov’s empty-netter with a little over a minute remaining.Tampa Bay’s second and third lines once again did most of the damage, with Point scoring at 12:15 of the first period and Killorn, Johnson and Kucherov adding goals during a three-minute stretch of the second to build a 4-1 lead.Both of Killorn’s goals came on power plays. Kucherov’s second of the series deflected off Vatanen’s stick into New Jersey’s net.Vasilevskiy stopped 29 of 31 shots in the opener and was outstanding again Saturday. New Jersey outshot the Lightning 44-25, including 19-9 over the final 20 minutes.”We did a great job in the third period. Too little, too late, but I think we showed fight,” Schneider said. ”It is what it is. They’re a good team at home. They protected home ice and now we have to try to go back and do the same in our building.”Notes: Hirschier was New Jersey’s second-leading scorer during the regular season with 52 points, 41 fewer than Hall. At 19 years, 100 days, he became the youngest player in franchise history to score a playoff goal. … Lightning RW Ryan Callahan left the game late in the second period with an upper body injury and did not return. … Kucherov, Tampa Bay’s leading scorer this season, has 46 points (24 goals, 22 assists) in 47 career playoff games.—
