Staal had missed three games and he rejoined the team Wednesday.”He’s a lift, spiritually and physically on the ice,” Williams said. ”You know he’s going to make the right play. You know he’s going to win a battle. As his linemate, playing tonight, you know he’s going to get the puck to you when it’s a 1-on-1 battle. He’s a very important piece for us, clearly.”Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said Staal means more to the franchise than just his numbers.”You need your best players to be your best players and we miss him when he’s not here,” he said. ”It’s good to have him back.”Carolina, which is chasing the eighth spot in the East, made quick work in ending the good times in Philly.Williams knocked in a loose puck 4:40 into the game and the former Flyer stuck it to his former team one more time.”There’s a little something there Anaheim Ducks T-Shirts Authentic ,” Williams said. ”It’s special. My wife’s family is from here. I have a lot of friends here. This is where I started. It’s always special, absolutely.”The Flyers sizzling offense of late fizzled and even goalie Petr Mrazek had his worst outing since he was acquired two weeks ago. He stopped 28 shots to beat Montreal 1-0 in a shootout in his last start. He was 3-0 with a 1.30 goals-against average and a .947 save percentage in his three starts.Teuvo Teravainen scored early in the second and Williams scored his 12th goal of the season late in the second for the 3-0 lead.Staal had his 21st assist on Williams’ second goal.”I don’t think there’s much to be said about what he’s going through. It’s huge to have him back,” Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk said.The Flyers were stymied offensively and took only six shots in the first period. In the second, they were shutout in a period where they had scored 74 goals this season.Yes, even a 12-game streak that helped take them from last in the Metro Division in early December to a brief stop in first atop the division, the Flyers were soundly booed off the ice at the end of a dreary second period. The Flyers would have moved back into first place with a victory and lost for the first time in regulation since Feb. 1.Flyers defenseman Andrew MacDonald said the winning had masked some bad habits picked up of late by the team.”You kind of get into a groove and you’re kind of feeling it and think things are going to go right for you,” he said. ”That’s not always going to be the case. Tonight was a good example of that.”Travis Konecny gave a brief jolt to their offense with a goal early in the third to make it 3-1.”It’s tough to do this on home ice. We can’t win them all,” Flyers center Jake Voracek said.Sebastian Aho sealed it with his 23rd goal.”We need to impose our will. We need to suffocate teams,” Williams said. ”We did that today.”NOTES: The Flyers played the Hurricanes for the first of three times over the final 19 games of the season. … The Flyers have a weekend set in Florida. … Ward improved his career record to 12-11-6 vs. the Flyers. … Flyers D Ivan Provorov was down on the ice for a bit after taking a shot his right knee.UP NEXT:Hurricanes: Host New Jersey on Friday.Flyers: At Tampa Bay on Saturday and at Florida on Sunday. WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice wants the Jets to focus on fun, not the magnitude of Sunday’s game against the Vegas Golden Knights.The expansion Golden Knights are up 3-1 in the best-of-seven Western Conference final and could eliminate the Jets and reach the Stanley Cup Final with a victory.”These are the best games Anaheim Ducks Hoodies Authentic , always are, when everything is on the line,” Maurice said Saturday. ”Everybody will be at their most excited. You have to find a way, and it shouldn’t be very difficult, to love every minute of it. … This has to be your finest hour. Before the puck drops, I’m not talking about the play, be able to get your mind that this is the most fun game of the year now.”The Jets have accomplished more in the playoffs than the Atlanta Thrashers franchise did before relocating to Manitoba in 2011. They’ve also surpassed the achievements of the original NHL Jets franchise that moved to Arizona in 1996.As the current Winnipeg team eliminated the Minnesota Wild in the first round in five games and then bounced the Predators in a Game 7 in Nashville, fans from across the country have cheered on the only Canadian team left in the championship run.Jets defenseman Ben Chiarot and his teammates have seen the adoration, particularly in Winnipeg with their white-clad crowd inside Bell MTS Place and thousands more outside at ”whiteout” street parties around the rink.Now, though, isn’t the time to let the hopes of hockey fans weigh them down Anaheim Ducks Hats Authentic , he said.”I don’t think you can think about that, how many people we have watching us,” Chiarot said.”It’s a little daunting when you think of a whole province, or even the whole country, watching us play. So you just focus on what you do and the guys in the room and that’s all we focus on.”Winnipeg won the first game against the Golden Knights at home.The Jets had an NHL-best home record of 32-7-2 in the regular season and finished with nine straight victories at home. They added four more in the playoffs, but have lost three of their last four games at home.In the last two losses to Vegas, the Jets gave up the first goal. When they did tie it up in both matches, the Golden Knights responded with goals in under a minute to regain their lead.”It’s going to be really important, not only just to score the first, but just to have a good start,” Jets forward Andrew Copp said. ”We felt like we actually started OK last game Custom Anaheim Ducks Jerseys , just kind of got in penalty trouble early. That can determine how it looks like you start.”If the Jets can pull out a victory Sunday, Game 6 is Tuesday night in Las Vegas. A Game 7 would be Thursday night in Winnipeg.Maurice wants his players to approach the do-or-die game like their Game 7 victory in Nashville.”I want them to take their experience from Game 6 and 7 and create the environment they created there where they came out with an excitement and smile on their face,” he said. ”Going into Game 7, there’s as much pressure in that game as there was here, right? It’s the exact same game. This one is at home. We’ll need that crowd. They’ve been great for us.”Both teams, all four teams now (left in the playoffs), there’s not quite as much in the tank as there was before. You’re looking to draw on that and go out with an excited smile.”
