TAMPA Adidas Mike Hoffman Jersey , Fla. (AP) Brayden Point is about as reliable as they come in a shootout.The second-year center scored the deciding goal in a tiebreaker for the second consecutive game, lifting the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.Point improved to 8 for 13 in career shootout attempts and scored the winner for the fifth time.”A lot of times he just goes down there and shoots the puck in the net,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. ”That’s what you are supposed to do.”Tyler Johnson, Chris Kunitz and Adam Erne scored in regulation for the NHL-leading Lightning, who played most of the game without Nikita Kucherov after the league’s top scorer was injured. Still, the Atlantic Division leaders edged second-place Toronto hours after acquiring defenseman Ryan McDonagh and forward J.T. Miller in a blockbuster deal with the New York Rangers just before the NHL trade deadline.Tampa Bay parted with forward Vladislav Namestnikov, two prospects and two draft picks – a first-round selection in 2018 and a conditional high pick in 2019.James van Riemsdyk, Mitch Marner and Tyler Bozak had the goals for Toronto, which played without injured star Auston Matthews. Frederik Andersen stopped 39 shots.Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 27 saves for Tampa Bay. He denied Marner on a penalty shot with 6:02 left in the third period to keep the score tied.Kucherov exited with 5:41 left in the first and did not return. The team announced he sustained an upper-body injury, but Cooper didn’t have an update following the game or offer any indication on how much time Kucherov could miss. The two-time All-Star has 82 points in 63 games.Even without Kucherov and Namestnikov, a 20-goal scorer this season Adidas Jonny Brodzinski Jersey , the Lightning found a way to come out on top in a game that had a playoff feel.”It was two teams that wanted to win a hockey game, that was pretty clear,” Cooper said. ”It was fast, both teams competed, and it had pretty much everything. … It was a good hockey game.”The game went back and forth with three lead changes before heading to overtime.Johnson and Erne scored in the second period to erase a 2-1 deficit. Bozak scored on a power play 5:27 into the third to tie it.”They’re a team we’re trying to catch and whenever you play the best you have to be the best to beat them,” Bozak said. ”It’s a great challenge for us every time we play them and I thought we did a pretty good job tonight on the road. Nice to get a point.”Toronto coach Mike Babcock did not share that sentiment.”They’re a good team and it’s always great to get a point, but I didn’t think this was one of our better games,” he said.NOTES: Toronto C Tomas Plekanec made his Maple Leafs debut wearing No. 19, one day after being acquired from the Montreal Canadiens. … Matthews missed his second consecutive game with a shoulder injury. … With his goal, van Riemsdyk extended his scoring streak to six games. … Toronto D Morgan Rielly established a career high with 37 points. … Vasilevskiy earned his 37th win, tied with Ben Bishop for second-most in a season in franchise history and three shy of matching Bishop’s club record.UP NEXTLightning: Host the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday.Maple Leafs: At the Florida Panthers on Tuesday.— ANAHEIM Adidas Peter Budaj Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Clark Bishop scored his first NHL goal by crashing into the Anaheim net along with the puck. Two lengthy video reviews later, the rookie finally got to celebrate.That ramshackle goal was a fairly appropriate symbol for a night of gritty work by the Carolina Hurricanes, who don’t have enough time or healthy players to worry about style points.Brett Pesce scored the tiebreaking goal early in the third period, and the Hurricanes ended their three-game skid and the Ducks‘ five-game winning streak with a 4-1 victory over Anaheim on Friday.Justin Williams also scored in the third period and Petr Mrazek made 18 saves in his first victory since Oct. 26 as the Canes won in Anaheim for just the second time in nine years.Sebastian Aho added an empty-netter as Carolina salvaged one win from its three-game California trip despite the injury absences of top goal-scorer Micheal Ferland, veteran forward Jordan Staal and starting goalie Curtis McElhinney.“We’re not going to score a lot of pretty goals,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “We’ve pretty much established that. We’ve got to find some other ways to get them.”Bishop tied it for the Canes with his messy goal in the second period. The 22-year-old former fifth-round pick slid into John Gibson while the puck trickled underneath the goalie, but the goal survived two reviews that concluded the puck had crossed the line and refuted Anaheim’s claim of goalie interference.“It was definitely kind of a weird goal,” Bishop said. “Not something that I ever pictured scoring my first NHL goal like that, but they all count, and luckily that one did.”Jakob Silfverberg scored his 100th career goal for the Ducks, who had won seven of eight and earned points in nine of 10 before an uncharacteristic third-period flop.“We didn’t play anywhere near to the blue collar-type of game that was required Adidas Matt Read Jersey ,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “Nothing we seemed to try to do had any positive effect. It was all frustration and a lack of ability to execute. … It was one of those games where nothing we did was effective. Hopefully we learned from it, because we lacked any type of resemblance to the team we’ve been.”Anaheim didn’t allow a goal after the second period during its winning streak. Carolina scored twice in 61 seconds in the third, starting when Pesce connected perfectly with an aggressive swing at a pass from Teuvo Teravainen for the defenseman’s third goal.Gibson stopped 32 shots for Anaheim, but took just his second regulation loss in nine appearances after mishandling a high shot that turned into Williams’ fifth goal.Mrazek made just his second appearance since Nov. 2 for the Hurricanes after McElhinney was scratched with a lower-body injury that apparently occurred during practice Thursday.Saku Maenalanen made his NHL debut for Carolina after Staal was sidelined for the first time this season due to a concussion.Silfverberg put the Ducks ahead in the first period with a short-handed goal when Jake Dotchin’s shot deflected off his body. Silfverberg started the sequence that led to his milestone goal in his 445th game with a breakaway shot off the iron.“It’s tough on a night like this to look on the positive side, but it’s an accomplishment,” Silfverberg said. “We still felt we had another gear we had to put in if we wanted to come out with two points. Our last 40 (minutes were) definitely not the way we wanted to play. We were playing slow and sloppy with the puck. We weren’t connecting on passes.”NOTES: Bishop scored in his 11th career game. … Ducks F Rickard Rakell missed his first game of the season with an ankle injury. The Swede is off to a slow start with just five goals after scoring 34 last year. …Maenalanen, a 24-year-old Finn, is a former Nashville draft pick who began his first North American season in the AHL this fall. … Staal is out indefinitely after getting hurt in the third period at San Jose on Wednesday. … Ferland missed his fourth straight game with a concussion. … McElhinney will be re-evaluated when the Canes return to Raleigh.
