Barrett Hayton Jersey Womens
CALGARY http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authenti...ick-jersey , Alberta — In recent years, the Colorado Avalanche may have been a game Calgary season-ticket holders took a pass on — but no longer.Possibly the NHL’s most explosive line pays a visit to Alberta starting with a tilt in Calgary on Thursday.Mikko Rantanen, Gabriel Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon lead a resurgent Avalanche.Article continues below ...Rantanen had the league’s scoring lead entering Wednesday’s game with 12 goals and 16 assists. MacKinnon was fifth (9g, 9a) and Landeskog ninth (10g, 6a).The Avalanche are tied for second in the Western Conference with a 7-3-2 record.“I think we’re one of the top teams in the league in the standings,” Rantanen told nhl.com. “I know its early, but still, other teams have to look for us and be ready for us. I think we’re playing good hockey now. It’s still early and there are a lot of games left, so we just have to be consistent.”Calgary is returning home from a very successful two-game trip to Toronto and Buffalo, where they scored late in regulation each night then won in overtime.Matthew Tkachuk tipped in the tying goal with 54 seconds remaining in the third period and Johnny Gaudreau won it 2:40 in overtime.The Flames are 7-5-1 and were seventh in the Western Conference as of Wednesday morning.While the Flames are coming off back-to-back games on the road, the Avalanche are coming off a nice little rest period. They last played on Saturday, losing 3-2 in Minnesota.“Rest is the big, main thing coming out of the seven (games) in 12 (days),” head coach Jared. Bednar told nhl.com. “They had a couple days of rest. We had a good day of practice (Tuesday). We’ll have short one (Wednesday) before we fly off. Then we go back-to-back (games) http://www.flyersshoponline.com/authenti...cny-jersey , and they’ll get some rest again and then put them to work and get ready for the next stretch.”The Avalanche will fly to Vancouver after Thursday’s game to face the Canucks on Friday.While the Avalanche are rested, the Flames have been busy. They finish up a stretch of six games in nine days on Saturday when they host the Chicago Blackhawks.They have recovered with the two road wins after losing 9-1 to Pittsburgh and 4-3 in OT to Washington at home.“We’re getting where we want to be,” captain Mark Giordano told reporters in Buffalo. “Tonight was solid again, I didn’t think we gave up much. We’re getting to where we know what to expect out of each other defensively and we’re not cheating on offence and that’s resulting in wins.”Gaudreau is again the player to watch for Calgary. He’s off to a fast start with six goals and 10 assists in 13 games. Calgary’s top goal scorer so far is Elias Lindholm, who was acquired in the offseason from Carolina.“He’s one of those players that generates quality chances all the time,” Flames head coach Bill Peters told Postmedia News, whom he coached in Carolina. “Right now, they’re going in for him. Right now, he’s playing on a real good line with a good play-making winger and a center in Johnny and (Sean Monahan).“That’s the thing with Johnny — he makes a lot of plays. He buys guys time and Lindy’s done a good job of getting to the right spot at the right time.” OTTAWA –The Ottawa Senators will put a three-game winning streak on the table when they host the Boston Bruins at Canadian Tire Centre on Tuesday night.The Bruins are currently going the other way.After an embarrassing, 7-0 season opening loss to the Washington Capitals, the Bruins (4-2-2) rebounded by winning four in a row, a stretch in which they outscored opponents 22-6.Article continues below ...From there, they hit the road. And the bumps.First they were swept in Alberta, with 5-2 and 3-2 (overtime) losses to the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers Barrett Hayton Jersey Womens , respectively. Then came a 2-1 overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night, a game in which the Bruins held a 31-22 shots advantage but had difficulty solving Jacob Markstrom.“When you are in overtime and your goalie doesn’t stand on his head to get you there, then usually you have played well enough,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said after the game, per NHL.com. “I thought their goalie was really good, made some big saves for them. Our power play finally generated some stuff that we couldn’t get behind him, so I give him a lot of credit. It easily could have gone our way.”Injuries have hit the Bruins hard during their tour of Canada. Already without defenseman Torey Krug (ankle) since training camp, they have lost defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Kevan Miller, plus winger David Backes during the road trip. Yet the players, like their coach, feel the results could have been different.“It’s just frustrating,” winger David Pastrnak said, per NHL.com. “Definitely, it doesn’t go the way we wanted on this trip Michael Grabner Jersey Womens , but we lost back-to-back in overtime, and that can go either way.”Senators goalie Craig Anderson will aim for his fourth consecutive victory on Tuesday. Coming off a 4-3 overtime win over Montreal in which they kept the opponents under 30 shots for the first time this season, the Senators (4-2-1) know they are facing a very dangerous team, led by the line of Pastrnak, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.That Boston trio combined for 11 points when the Bruins beat the Senators 6-3 in Boston on Oct. 8.“We have to prepare something against the Bergeron line,” Senators coach Guy Boucher told reporters after Monday’s practice. “They are outstanding, plain and simple. As dominant a line as you can get in hockey.”While the Bruins injury list is growing, the Senators are getting players back from their infirmary. Rookie winger Alex Formenton is expected to be in the lineup after missing three games with a concussion. The Senators could also be welcoming back defenseman Cody Ceci, who has missed the last three games with an upper body injury.In either case, Boucher is leaning towards going with the 11-forward, seven defensemen alignment he has favored since the winning streak began.“They’ve been playing great … makes it that much easier,” Ceci said about his teammates. “It’s painful when you’re out of the lineup and you wish you could help. But they’ve been doing a great job without me.”Winger Mark Stone feels the Senators just have to keep doing what they’ve been doing while losing only once in a five-game homestand that concludes against the Bruins.“Play simple, play fast and execute plays when they’re there,” said Stone http://www.sanjosesharksteamshop.com/aut...rns-jersey , who had two goals, including the OT winner, against Montreal. “We’ve got to find a way to limit their best players. I think that line really beat us that (Oct. 8) night. We’ve got to limit their time and space a little bit better than we had done, not just that game, but every game we’ve played against them. I know we’re not the only team that’s had that issue, but if you’re going to beat the Boston Bruins you’ve got to shut down their top guys.”A difficult chore, to be sure.“I think the way Bergeron plays the game, helps those star players play,” said Stone. “He’s kind of their safety valve. Marchand and Pastrnak both skate so well, they both have such tremendous skill sets, that it allows them to freelance a little bit. That line, they kind of have a little bit of everything, for sure.”
