Tue Feb 26, 2019 3:38 am

CALGARY Paul Thompson Jersey Womens , Alberta (AP) — Calgary Flames coach Bill Peters is seeing a payoff for moving newcomer Elias Lindholm onto the Flames’ top line.Lindholm scored his first two goals with Calgary and the Flames scored four unanswered goals in the third period for a 7-4 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.The Swede, acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes in a trade at the June draft, scored a power-play goal that was the eventual game-winner at 14:28 of the third period.With Canucks forward Nikolay Goldobin serving a slashing penalty, Lindholm beat goalie Jakob Markstrom on the short side off a cross-ice feed from Johnny Gaudreau.Gaudreau had a goal and two assists, joining Lindholm, who added an assist, in a three-point game.“Most guys take some time to fit into new systems but he was able to slot in right away,” Peters said. “The line with him, (Sean) Monahan and Gaudreau has a lot of potential heading into this season.”Flames captain Mark Giordano and Monahan also scored for Calgary (1-1-0) Troy Brouwer Jersey Womens , with Austin Czarnik and Michael Frolik adding empty-net goals. Matthew Tkachuk had four assists.“Monny’s a goal-scoring center and Johnny’s a play-making winger,” Peters said. “It used to be your center made plays and your winger scored goals, so they’ve got that a little bit flip-flopped. That’s fine.”Flames starter Mike Smith made 16 saves for the win, while Markstrom had 30 saves in the loss.Elias Pettersson scored two goals and assisted on another for the Canucks, who beat the visiting Flames 5-2 in Wednesday’s season-opener.The 19-year-old Swede has five points in his first two career NHL games.“Dynamite,” Canucks head coach Travis Green said. “He was our best player tonight. He was one of the bright spots in the game. A few guys played OK. We had some guys that needed to play better.”Brandon Sutter scored a short-handed goal and Bo Horvat had a goal for Vancouver, which led 4-3 heading into the third period.Monahan’s power-play goal at 9:27 of the third tied the game at 4-4. After the center redirected a cross-ice pass from Gaudreau by Markstrom, Smith robbed Goldobin with a glove save.Penalized for hauling down Pettersson near Calgary’s net late in the second period, Flames defenseman Michael Stone joined Giordano in the penalty box and the Canucks had a two-man advantage.Horvat redirected Pettersson’s feed for a power-play goal at 16:57.Tkachuk tucked the puck into the corner of Vancouver’s net during a goal-mouth scramble http://www.officialavalanche.com/authentic-adidas-sven-andrighetto-jersey , but a coach’s challenge wiped out the goal in the second period.But Gaudreau then banged in a rebound off a Monahan shot for a power-play goal at 9:31 to even the score 3-3.Pettersson scored his second goal with a shot from the face-off circle at 2:52 on the power-play.Giordano tied the game 2-2 at 17:08 of the first period. Calgary’s captain beat Markstrom with a wrist shot from the top of the face-off circle.The visitors led 2-1 on a Sutter’s short-handed goal at 16:38. He beat Smith with a shot under the arm on a 2-on-1.Pettersson swept the puck by Smith’s glove from the slot at 13:50 for his first goal of the night.Lindholm scored his first goal just 12 seconds after the opening puck drop.After winning the offensive-zone faceoff, the Swede tipped T.J. Brodie’s wrist shot from the boards by Markstrom.NOTES: Calgary was minus defenseman Travis Hamonic on Saturday because of a facial fracture he sustained in a fight Wednesday with Canucks defenseman Erik Gudbrandson. … Noah Hanifin moved up to partner Stone on Calgary’s No. 2 defensive pairing. Dalton Prout drew into the lineup alongside rookie Juusu Valimaki, who turned 20 on Saturday.NEXT UPFlames embark on a three-game road trip starting Tuesday in Nashville.Canucks have another five games remaining on a six-game swing away from Rogers Arena. SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Panthers are hoping for deja vu.Sort of.A year ago, the Panthers shook off a disastrous start to the season and caught fire after the All-Star break — only to miss the playoffs by a single point. This year, they’re heading into the break on a three-game winning streak and playing perhaps their best hockey of the season after spending the first three months of the year sputtering near the bottom of the NHL.So here they go again, trying for another late and improbable playoff push.“We have that confidence back, that swagger,” goaltender Roberto Luongo said after a 6-2 win over San Jose on Monday night.They’ll need more than swagger.The Panthers were 24-8-2 in the final 34 games last season http://www.officialcanadiensprostore.com/authentic-adidas-phillip-danault-jersey , getting 50 of a possible 68 points down the stretch. This year, with 34 games left when they return to the ice on Feb. 1, they’ll need a similar run. Florida is 10 points out of the final wild-card berth in the Eastern Conference, and 11 points from catching Boston for the third and final guaranteed playoff spot out of the Atlantic Division.“I think we are starting to turn the corner,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “We have a long way to go.”As unlikely as it seems — especially for the Panthers, an often-woebegone franchise that hasn’t won a playoff series since 1996 — there is a potential path to the postseason.Florida (20-20-8) has 12 games between Feb. 1 and Feb. 23, and 11 of those are on home ice. That’s the good news. The flip side is this: Of those 12, eight are against teams that are currently in the top half of the NHL, including matchups with Tampa Bay Womens Craig Smith Jersey , Nashville, Washington, Pittsburgh and Vegas quickly after the All-Star break ends.“It’s nice to be back to feeling the way I like to feel and the confidence is there,” said Luongo, who has won consecutive starts for the first time in more than a month. “The guys are playing well in front of me. It’s a two-way street. When the guys play well I feel good and when I feel good the guys play well.”There is a clear urgency, and it started last week with the team on what was then a seven-game losing skid.Florida was without Vincent Trocheck for 27 games after he broke his right ankle in November. When he returned to practice last week, the Panthers’ plan was to keep him out until after the break in order to make sure he was fully ready to go.Trocheck successfully argued otherwise. Not only did he play in three games since returning to practice — in a four-day span, no less — the Panthers went 3-0-0 in those games, clearly sparked by his comeback.“We’re having fun Filip Forsberg Jersey ,” said Trocheck, who has two goals and two assists since returning. “It’s fun to win some hockey games. It’s been tough for us this year in that department. To go into a break like this with a little bit of momentum, having some fun, it’s going to make a big difference for the second half.”
