Stanley Cup Final begins Monday Antworten

NASHVILLE Detroit Red Wings Hats Authentic , Tenn. (AP) — After a lackluster opening period by the Nashville Predators, Ryan Hartman and Kevin Fiala went to work.Hartman scored twice in a 57-second span and Juuse Saros made 23 saves to lead Nashville to a 4-1 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night.Calle Jarnkrok and Viktor Arvidsson also scored, and Fiala assisted on both of Hartman’s goals for the Predators, who have won two of their last three.Reilly Smith had the lone goal for Vegas, which has dropped three of four.Trailing by a goal after one, Hartman and Fiala connected and turned a deficit into a lead just past the midpoint of the second period.Hartman made it 1-1 at 11:27 of the second. From the left boards, Fiala passed to Hartman in the high slot.Hartman danced around Vegas defender Colin Miller before making a move and beating Vegas goaltender Malcolm Subban high to the stick side, just beneath the crossbar.“I was thinking shot,” Hartman said. “He was pretty tight on his gap, so I was able to step around him and kind of have a 1-on-1 with the goalie there.”Fiala and Hartman teamed up again 57 seconds later to give Nashville a 2-1 lead. Nashville entered the Vegas zone on a 3-on-1. Fiala sent a nifty backhand pass from the right circle to Hartman at the left faceoff dot. Hartman did not get all of the puck with his one-timer, but he got enough to beat a sliding Subban high to the stick side.“Today I was just thinking about playing the right way Custom Detroit Red Wings Jerseys ,” Fiala said. “Just simple game and not thinking about too much, scoring goals or whatever. If you stop thinking, sometimes it works, and today obviously it did.”Fiala entered Tuesday with just three points in 11 games.P.K. Subban, the older brother of the Vegas goaltender, picked up the secondary assist on the goal.“I didn’t think that we showed ourselves very well in the first period,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “But I thought the team and the lines and the players showed pretty well in the second and third.”Smith scored the game’s first goal at 17:14 of the first. With Vegas on a power play, an unchecked Smith skated to the left faceoff dot and snapped a wrist shot past Saros on the far side. Smith’s goal was set up by a nice pass from Jonathan Marchessault along the right boards.“They cashed in on our mistakes in the second period, and nobody stepped up after that,” Marchessault said. “(Subban) was awesome tonight and we weren’t there for him.”Making his fifth-straight start due to an injury to Pekka Rinne, Saros was sharp in the first www.officialoilers.com , stopping 12 of 13 shots.Jarnkrok gave Nashville a two-goal lead at 6:37 of the third. On another odd-man rush, Craig Smith sent a pass from the right side to Jarnkrok in the left circle, where he ripped a one-timer past Malcolm Subban, who finished with 24 saves.“We made some bad choices on pinches that cost us a couple of goals tonight and gave them a lot of odd-man rushes,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “That’s not what we usually do and it cost us tonight.”With the Vegas goaltender pulled for an extra attacker with just over two minutes remaining in the third, Arvidsson was fouled from behind by Nick Holden on a breakaway and a goal was credited to the Swedish winger.NOTES: Hartman had his first multi-goal game as a Predator. … Nashville has allowed at least one power-play goal in its last four games. … Predators D Matt Irwin played his first game of the season after being a healthy scratch for the first 11. … Vegas has scored one power-play goal in three consecutive games.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Visit St. Louis on Thursday.Predators: Visit Tampa Bay on Thursday. WASHINGTON (AP) After the Capitals scored early, the Penguins scored often to stun their rivals with yet another comeback.Patric Hornqvist, Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel scored in a 4:49 span to help Pittsburgh erase a two-goal deficit in the third period and the Penguins beat Washington 3-2 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the second-round series.Showing no panic from allowing a goal to Evgeny Kuznetsov 17 seconds into the game and another to Alex Ovechkin 28 seconds into the third period, the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions took another series lead in typical Penguins fashion.Playing without injured forwards Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin, Pittsburgh naturally fed off Crosby, who had a goal and an assist.”Right from Sid Edmonton Oilers T-Shirts Authentic , he led the way for us and it’s right down the lineup,” said Guentzel, who had a goal and two assists and leads the playoffs with 16 points. ”You can’t get down. There’s going to be highs and lows throughout the whole series. You’ve got to stick with it to the end and we were happy to get three and end up winning the game.”Matt Murray stopped 32 of 34 shots, keeping the Penguins in the game and maintaining the lead late with a sprawling stick save on Brett Connolly with 2:30 left. Unsure of what would happen at the other end of the rink with Braden Holtby dialed in, Murray could only keep the puck out as much as possible after allowing the early-period goals to Kuznetsov and Ovechkin.Murray denied Michal Kempny from point-blank range and kept the puck out from a hard-charging Devante Smith-Pelly early and missed no opportunity to give the Penguins the impressive stop when they needed it.”I thought he was locked in all night long,” coach Mike Sullivan said. ”He made some big saves for us, especially when they were pressing down the stretch there. … When you get those types of saves, it’s easy to play with some confidence in front of him.”Murray couldn’t predict a furious comeback, but he wasn’t shocked, either. Not after Pittsburgh has won nine consecutive playoff series dating to 2016, including two against these Capitals.”There’s going to be good things that happen out there and there’s going to be bad things that happen out there Edmonton Oilers Hoodies Authentic ,” Murray said. ”It’s about how you respond. We did a good job of that.”The Capitals gave the Penguins a couple of solid punches in the series opener but didn’t respond well when some bounces went against them early in the third. A deflection goal by Hornqvist, a puck that went off Ovechkin’s stick to Crosby and then a redirection by Guentzel took the air out of the building and ruined a strong start by Holtby.”Obviously, some things we’d like to work on,” said Holtby, who stopped all 17 shots through two periods before allowing three on eight in the third. ”Same time, their goals they scored, they were kind of strange plays, especially the last one. It was one of those that’s just a weird bounce.”Washington blew a two-goal lead for the fourth time in seven games in these playoffs, but players felt they handled this better than situations in the first round against Columbus.”Those three shifts, they score,” said Kuznetsov Edmonton Oilers Hats Authentic , whose goal was the second-fastest in Capitals playoff history. ”I feel like they got momentum, and then they score again and again.”As even as the play was, a handful of mistakes were enough to put the Penguins up going into Game 2 Sunday afternoon. Sullivan already sees opportunities to cut down on chances against, and his players think they can be better as the series goes on.”It’s one game, we did some good things,” Crosby said. ”I think in any playoff series, it’s just about getting better with every game.”NOTES: The Capitals have killed 18 consecutive penalties dating to Game 2 against Columbus. .., Malkin skated Thursday morning with teammates, while Hagelin did not make the trip. Malkin could be an option for Game 2 if his apparent leg injury has healed enough.—
