Colorado’s Gabriel Landeskog (20th Dec 18 at 7:35am UTC)
TAMPA Eric Fehr Jersey Womens , Fla. (AP) The highest-scoring team in the NHL is playing a stingy brand of defense in the playoffs.Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Tampa Bay Lightning know ultimately that will be the key to the chances for a deep run for the third time in four years.The top seed in the Eastern Conference won its opening round series 4-1 over the New Jersey Devils, with Vasilevskiy stopping 53 of 55 shots over the last two games.”We did a good job. They’re a good team, but we were better a little bit,” the 23-year-old goaltender said after Saturday’s 3-1 clinching victory.”The guys played well,” Vasilevskiy said. ”When your team is playing well, I’m feeling much better, more confidence. … ”Now it’s in the past and we have to move on and think about the second round.”Nikita Kucherov scored goals in four of the five games, including three game-winners.With five goals and five assists, he set a franchise record for points in a playoff series and also tied Vincent Lecavalier for second place on the Tampa Bay’s postseason scoring list with 52 points in 50 games.But as well as the league’s third-leading scorer and the rest of the offense performed over the course of the series http://www.sabresshoponline.com/authentic-jack-eichel-jersey , the defense was just as good after struggling at times over the last two months of the season.The Devils scored seven goals in the four games they lost. Before yielding one goal in each of the final two games, Vasilevskiy had never allowed one or fewer goals in a playoff start.”He’s been unbelievable. He’s so young, but it seems like he’s been in the league for 20 years,” Kucherov said. ”When he makes the saves, it gives energy to our group and the bench, everyone is fired up.”In his first season as a No. 1 goalie, the finalist for the Vezina Trophy tied for first in the NHL in victories (44) and shutouts (eight) and finished with a 2.62 goals-against average and .920 save percentage.Those numbers might have been even better if the Lightning had played better defense in front of him over the last half of the season.”He was on it from Game 1,” coach Jon Cooper said of the young goaltender’s performance against the Devils.”He just came up huge in every big situation. … The timely saves were phenomenal for us,” Cooper added. ”He just played with confidence.”And Youth Jake McCabe Jersey , that gives the Lightning reason to feel good heading into the Eastern Conference semifinals against the winner of the first-round matchup between the Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs.”We don’t care who’s going to be there. There’s no easy teams in the playoffs,” Kucherov said. ”We have to make sure we play the same way and we play our way.”Cooper appreciates being able to close out the Devils early, avoiding a return trip to Newark, New Jersey, for Game 6.”Ultimately, you just don’t want to get on the plane, again. It’s not that there’s still series left, but it’s the wear and tear on the body and mind,” Cooper said. ”I’m not one of those Jason Pominville Jersey Kids , let the series go seven and just keep playing. We’ll take the rest, take a step back and prepare.”— COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Coach John Tortorella thought the Columbus Blue Jackets had run out of energy after taking a 2-0 lead in the first period and then allowing Colorado to climb back in the second to tie it.Maybe, but they managed to find some more. The Blue Jackets regrouped, led by captain Nick Foligno, and ran away in the third period for a 5-2 win over the Avalanche on Tuesday night.“We had a really good first, then we didn’t have a good second but we came right back and had a really good third — and I think that’s important for the mindset in here,” Foligno said. “No matter what’s going on in a game, you just got to find a way to win a period sometimes. That’s how you win in this league is just finding a way.”Foligno had two goals and an assist http://www.sabresshoponline.com/authentic-johan-larsson-jersey , and Sergei Bobrovsky made 25 saves to get his first win of the season.Pierre-Luc Dubois, Artemi Panarin and Josh Anderson also scored for the Blue Jackets, who dealt the Avs their first loss. Alexander Wennberg had the primary assists on both of Foligno’s goals.Philipp Grubauer, making his Colorado debut after being acquired from Washington in June, had 30 saves. Nathan MacKinnon and Carl Soderberg scored in the second period. Panarin found an opening from inside the left circle about five minutes into third period to give Columbus the lead. Foligno got his second of the night, a wrist shot from inside the left circle that clanged in off the bar, with 8:28 left in the game.Anderson added an empty-netter from the other end of the ice with 2 minutes remaining.“I’m happy we had to go through some stuff and found a way to win,” Tortorella said. Foligno got his first goal of the season 6:49 into the game when he took a pass from Wennberg from behind the line and found the net with a back-hander from the slot. Dubois got what he called “a pretty easy goal” halfway through the period, going off Grubauer’s glove with a rebound while Columbus had a 5-on-3 advantage.Early in the second period Authentic Justin Bailey Jersey , MacKinnon got his third goal of the year when he pulled up and snapped a shot over Bobrovsky’s glove from 40 feet out. Soderberg got a deflection goal — his 200th NHL point — on a power play to tie the game later in the second.“It really doesn’t matter if the second period was great,” Grubauer said. “The first one and the third one, that’s where we ran into some trouble. You got to play the right way for 60 minutes, not just one period.”NOTES: Riley Nash centered the third line for the Blue Jackets after Brandon Dubinsky suffered a strained oblique muscle in practice Sunday and was put on injured reserve. … Former Blue Jackets F Matt Calvert and D Ian Cole returned to Nationwide Arena for the first time since signing free-agent contracts with Colorado last summer. Calvert, who played eight seasons in Columbus, got a standing ovation during a video tribute. … Colorado’s Gabriel Landeskog was in the lineup after missing practice Monday with a lower-body injury. … Lukas Sedlak made his season debut after being a healthy scratch in the first two games. … D Scott Harrington played his first game of the season after being out with a concussion.UP NEXTColorado: At Buffalo on Thursday.Columbus: At Florida on Thursday.
