CALGARY Dustin Tokarski Jersey Womens , Alberta (AP) — After fading down the stretch last season, the Calgary Flames are determined not to let it happen again.Mikael Backlund scored 15 seconds into overtime Tuesday night to give the Flames a 3-2 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. Calgary (33-13-5) heads into the All-Star break as the No. 1 team in the Western Conference, six points up on San Jose.“It’s good that we take the time early on to completely shut hockey off and just relax and then the closer we get to coming back, we’ve got to get the minds ready,” Backlund said.“Most guys were here last year and we learned a lesson from last year when we weren’t as good after the break. We know what to do this time and what not to.”Calgary went 12-18-2 after Feb. 1 last season and missed the playoffs.Oliver Kylington and Mark Jankowski also scored Tuesday for the Flames, who finished 9-1-1 in January. David Rittich made 33 saves to improve to 8-0-2 in his last 10 starts.All-Star representative Sebastian Aho tied it for Carolina with 44 seconds left in regulation. Dougie Hamilton also scored for the Hurricanes (23-20-6), who are trying to work their way into the wild-card race in the East.Peter Mrazek stopped 22 shots and denied the Flames on several prime chances.“He enabled us to at least hang in there and get a point out of this game,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said.“The positive is you came in here against one of the best teams and in my opinion, we could have had that game.”It was the first game between the teams since Bill Peters resigned as coach of the Hurricanes after four seasons and was hired by the Flames in April 2018.Carolina led 26-11 in shots on goal after two periods but trailed 2-1.Jankowski scored 4-on-4 at 6:40 of the second. Backlund dished T.J. Brodie’s cross-ice pass to Jankowski lurking at the corner of the Hurricanes net Valtteri Filppula Jersey Womens , where he batted the puck over Mrazek.Hamilton drew the Hurricanes even at 15:48 of the first when he wristed a drop pass from Brock McGinn by Rittich.Kylington darted out of the corner and beat Mrazek’s glove with a backhand at 1:58 of the opening period. The Hurricanes challenged for goaltender interference, but were denied.After scoring 12 power-play goals in 10 games this month, Calgary was blanked on four chances thanks in large part to Mrazek’s acrobatics.The Flames didn’t get a lot of sustained pressure in Carolina’s zone until the third period.“I don’t think we played our best game, but again, we found a way to win and I think that’s a big key,” Backlund said“That was one of our weaknesses last year. We couldn’t find ways to win and this year, it’s the opposite. Good teams, they find ways to win.”The All-Star break and bye week will provide an eight-day breather for the Flames, with the exception of All-Star participants Johnny Gaudreau and Peters.“Going into the break it’s important to go in with a good taste in your mouth Fredrik Claesson Jersey Womens ,” Peters said. “I like the direction which we are trending and the contributions throughout the lineup.“We played the best when the game was on the line in the third and I thought we had some great looks that made Mrazek make some big saves for them. … We’ll take the two points heading into the break and we’ll come back refreshed and ready to go.”NOTES: Gaudreau was kept off the scoresheet for the first time since Dec. 29. … Hamilton and forward Micheal Ferland also played their first game in Calgary since they were dealt to the Hurricanes for right wing Elias Lindholm and defenseman Noah Hanifin at the 2018 draft. Ferland didn’t finish the game because of an upper-body injury, Brind’Amour said.UP NEXTHurricanes: Finish their three-game road trip Wednesday night at Vancouver.Flames: Off until Feb. 1 against the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals before a rematch with the Hurricanes in North Carolina two days later. TORONTO (AP) — With just one win in seven games the Minnesota Wild needed a lift. Zach Parise provided it.Parise broke a tie off a turnover early in the third period and the Wild rallied to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 on Thursday.“It’s been some tough sledding for us,” Parise said. “We played a pretty solid game.”Auston Matthews lost the puck to Parise, who beat goalie Michael Hutchinson high over his glove at 4:21 for his 18th goal of the season. Minnesota overcame deficits of 2-0 and 3-2.“We kept pushing even when they got the 3-2 (lead),” said Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk, who was just named to his third all-star game. “We just stuck with it.”Toronto got a power play midway through the period, with Matthews hitting the post short side on Dubnyk. The Leafs pulled Hutchinson with 2:45 left, but were unable to get anything past the Wild netminder, including a chance that dribbled off the post in the dying seconds.“You’ve got to learn how to win all kinds of games Dylan DeMelo Jersey Womens ,” Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “They’re a veteran team, they make it hard on you. We scored twice in the first period … I didn’t like our first period. They were better than us. After that I liked our game a lot.”Jared Spurgeon had a goal and two assists, Charlie Coyle added a goal and an assist, and Mikko Koivu also scored for Minnesota. Dubnyk stopped 38 shots.Mitch Marner scored twice and William Nylander had the other goal for Toronto, which lost its second straight. John Tavares added two assists for the Leafs, and Hutchinson made 30 saves in his debut in an emergency recall from the minors. Hutchinson has only been with the organization since Saturday following a trade with the Florida Panthers.Marner staked the Leafs to an early lead when he snared a loose puck off the opening faceoff and fired a backhander off the post and in after just seven seconds to tie the Leafs’ franchise record for fastest goal at the start of a game. The 21-year-old winger made it 2-0 at 5:38 with his 15th goal of the season and ninth in the last eight games, scoring off a give-and-go with Tavares.Coyle cut the deficit to 2-1 at 9:10 when he scored his seventh on a rebound and the Wild tied it at 5:09 of the second when Koivu swatted his sixth past a down-and-out Hutchinson.Nylander responded with his first goal of the year when he beat Dubnyk upstairs at 8:16 to make it 3-2. The winger had just two points in his 11 previous games since his contract impasse with the Leafs ended on Dec. 1 with a six-year, $45 million deal.Parise hit the crossbar moments later, but the Wild evened the score at 9:36 when Spurgeon put a shot through Hutchinson’s pads for his fifth goal of the season.NOTES: Marner’s first goal tied Charlie Conacher’s team record set Feb. 6 Gabriel Gagne Jersey Womens , 1932 against the Boston Bruins. … Hutchinson was 1-1-2 with an .839 save percentage and a 4.18 goals-against average in four games for the Panthers this season, but was a respectable 43-39-11 with a .910 save percentage and a 2.65 GAA in 102 games between 2013 and 2018 with Winnipeg. … Hutchinson and fellow netminder Kasimir Kaskisuo were recalled from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis with both No. 1 goalie Frederik Andersen (groin) and backup Garret Sparks (concussion protocol) out. Andersen is on injured reserve while Sparks, who took a shot up high in Wednesday’s practice after starting Toronto’s last three games, sat out for precautionary reasons. … Tavares and Matthews were named as Toronto’s All-Star representatives. … Scotiabank Arena had significantly more kids than usual for a matinee start that included a flashy opening ceremony with children dressed up as players, referees and announcers. There were even miniature versions of Leafs coach Mike Babcock and famed Hockey Night in Canada commentator Don Cherry.UP NEXTWild: At Ottawa on Saturday.Maple Leafs: Host Vancouver on Saturday night.
