beginning of overtime (1st Mar 19 at 6:04am UTC)
WASHINGTON (AP) The plan was simple: Score early against a weary opponent and ride the momentum the rest of the way.The Tampa Bay Lightning carried out the strategy perfectly http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-adam-pelech-jersey , turning a big first period into a huge 4-2 victory over the Washington Capitals on Tuesday night in a showdown between division leaders in the Eastern Conference.Washington had played in Buffalo one day earlier, and that played significantly into the game-plan of Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper.Article continues below ...”The big thing for us is, we knew they played (Monday). The key for that is you’ve got to get the lead,” Cooper said.Brayden Point sandwiched two goals around a tally by Chris Kunitz to make it 3-0 after the first period. That proved to be enough of a cushion for goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, who stopped 35 shots to earn his NHL-leading 35th win.”A good first period, and then we kind of hung on,” Point said.After Alex Ovechkin notched his NHL-high 36th goal for Washington to make it 3-2 at 11:02 of the third, Nikita Kucherov clinched it with a breakaway goal with 7:02 remaining.The victory improved Tampa Bay’s NHL-best record to 40-17-3 and kept the Lightning ahead of surging Boston in the Atlantic Division and the Eastern Conference.”I liked a lot what happened in the first period. I thought we deserved to have a 3-0 lead,” Cooper said. ”There are a lot of positives to take out of the game Anders Lee Jersey , especially the fact that we got two points.”Lars Eller scored a power-play goal for the Capitals, who lead Pittsburgh by one point in the Metropolitan Division.Coach Barry Trotz was encouraged by his team’s play over the last 40 minutes, but lamented Washington’s miscues in the early-going.”We made three mistakes and they got all three of them,” Trotz said. ”They didn’t have very many shots … but they had three goals and we dug ourselves a hole.”Seeking to end a five-game losing streak in Washington, Tampa Bay took control early behind Point, a 21-year-old playing in his second NHL season. After Point beat Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby with a power-play goal at 2:30, Kunitz scored on a deflection at 16:00 before Point split two defenders and delivered a backhander for his 23rd goal of the season at 17:52.””That’s how we wanted to start off the game,” Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman said.It was the fifth career two-goal game for Point, who’s still seeking his first hat trick.”You think about it for sure Andrew Ladd Jersey , but the win is the most important thing,” he said.The All-Star center did, however, extend his point-scoring streak to five games.Eller scored his 12th goal of the season at 9:32 of the second period, but Vasilevskiy stiffened after that.”The goaltenders in this league are erasers,” Trotz said. ”Tonight, their eraser was really good, and so we take the loss.”NOTES: Kucherov leads Tampa Bay with 32 goals and 78 points. … One day after being obtained in trade with Chicago, Capitals D Michal Kempny participated in pre-game warmups but was scratched. … Holtby fell to 9-3-2 lifetime against Tampa Bay. … The Lightning won the season series 2-1. … Ovechkin is now six goals short of 600 for his career. He’s scored 43 against Tampa Bay in 65 games. … Washington fell to 20-9-2 at home but had its 395th consecutive sellout.UP NEXTLightning: At Ottawa on Thursday night Anthony Beauvillier Jersey , the second of three straight road games.Capitals: At Florida on Thursday night. Series tied 1-1, with each team winning on road.— PITTSBURGH (AP) Sidney Crosby let one chance to bury the New York Islanders slip away. The Pittsburgh Penguins star wasn’t about to let it happen twice.Crosby finished off a 2-on-1 by sneaking a wrist shot past Chris Gibson 3:48 into overtime to give the Penguins a 3-2 win Saturday. Pittsburgh’s captain failed to convert on a rush moments earlier, but an outlet pass by Justin Schultz freed up Crosby once again.This time he faked a pass to Conor Sheary and instead beat Gibson between the legs as the two-time defending Stanley Cup champions snapped a three-game losing streak.”Thought I had a good opportunity to shoot and missed one right before that so glad to see it go in,” Crosby said after picking up his 22nd goal of the season.Derick Brassard’s first goal with Pittsburgh tied it with less than nine minutes to go in regulation. Patric Hornqvist added his 18th goal of the season for the Penguins. Phil Kessel picked up two assists to become the sixth American-born player to reach 400 career assists. Tristan Jarry overcame a comically ugly start to finish with 25 saves.Jarry’s night began by giving up a goal to New York’s Brandon Davidson just 1:11 into the game. Davidson flipped a slow backhand from outside the right circle only to see it go into the net when Jarry tripped and fell backward to the ice .”It was a little easier when I came back to the bench and seen 90 percent of the guys laughing at me,” Jarry said. ”It’s a tough thing to swallow but I’m glad we won.”Anders Lee put New York up 4:59 into the third period when his shot caromed off Pittsburgh defenseman Jamie Oleksiak and over the goal line for his team-leading 31st. Gibson, making his first start in nearly two years, almost made it stand up. He finished with 47 saves in all but let Brassard jam one by him with 8:31 left in regulation to tie it and he was no match for Crosby late. The Islanders have dropped six straight.Making just his fifth NHL start and first since April 10, 2016, Gibson spent most of the night trying to make up for lost time. The Penguins peppered the New York net for long stretches Authentic Brock Nelson Jersey , often looking like they were on the power play despite being at even strength. Asked if he could remember the last time he faced 50 shots at any level, Gibson just shook his head.”To be honest, I can’t but it was great,” Gibson said. ”I loved every single second of it. I’m really happy with my game except that last goal and the loss there.”The Penguins were coming off an ugly 8-4 setback in Boston on Thursday night, one that extended their losing streak to three and blunted their recent surge toward the top of the Metropolitan Division. Coach Mike Sullivan, rarely hesitant to shake things up during even the slightest of downturns, opted for minor tweaks instead of major ones.Pittsburgh called up forward Dominik Simon and put him on the third line and Sullivan mixed up the bottom two defensive pairings, including giving Chad Ruhwedel his first start since Dec. 27. The result was better play in front of Jarry. After giving up 17 goals during the losing streak, Pittsburgh surrendered just the two flukish goals and Jarry collected himself after the bumpy start.The penalty kill was sharp at the beginning of overtime Cal Clutterbuck Jersey , giving Crosby a chance to win it.”The last two games I struggled a little bit and I didn’t think my game was where I wanted it to be at,” Jarry said. ”I thought tonight was a good bounce back performance for me and I think it’s something I can grow on.”NOTES: Pittsburgh G Matt Murray missed his third straight game since getting a concussion in practice Wednesday. … Pittsburgh scratched D Matt Hunwick, F Carter Rowney and C Zach Aston-Reese. … New York scratched Ds Dennis Seidenberg and Sebastian Aho and F Ross Johnston. … The Islanders went 0 for 2 on the power play. The Penguins were 1 for 2. … Pittsburgh is 7-1-1 in its last nine games against New York.UP NEXTIslanders: Begin swing through Western Canada on Monday in Vancouver.Penguins: Host Calgary on Monday.—
