Mike Smith Jersey
#1

GLENDALE Authentic Mikael Backlund Jersey , Ariz. (AP) Oliver Ekman-Larsson and the Arizona Coyotes aren’t going to the NHL playoffs this season. However, that doesn’t mean they’re taking it easy against contending teams.Ekman-Larsson scored twice late in the third period, including his 100th career goal, to lead the Coyotes to a 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Monday night.The 26-year-old is just the second Coyotes defenseman to reach the milestone and the 18th player in franchise history to do so.”That just means I’m doing something good out there,” Ekman-Larsson said.The Coyotes previously hung tough into the third period before losing against playoff-bound Nashville and Minnesota, and beat Los Angeles in a shootout.”We understand we are not in the playoffs, but we understand we are playing teams that are going in the playoffs,” Coyotes assistant coach John MacLean said. ”We understand we have to match their intensity … we didn’t back off all night.”Max Domi also had two goals for Arizona, including an empty-netter with 21 seconds left, and had an assist on Ekman-Larsson’s tiebreaking goal. Richard Panik scored early in the second period for the Coyotes Mike Smith Jersey , and Antti Raanta stopped 42 shots.Dougie Hamilton had a goal and an assist, and Sean Monahan also scored as Calgary – with its wild card hopes fading – lost for the fourth time in five games. Mike Smith finished with 25 saves.Domi stole a pass in the Calgary zone and beat Smith to tie the score at 2-2 with about 2 1/2 minutes left in the second period.Both teams missed several scoring chances in the third period until Ekman-Larsson put the Coyotes ahead with 3:41 remaining, then added an empty-netter 2:04 later for his 13th of the season to double the lead.Smith started his first game at Gila River Arena since the Flames acquired him from Arizona last summer. A video tribute to the Coyotes’ all-time leader in games played and shutouts among goalies was shown during a stoppage in play in the first period, and Smith offered a quick wave after being welcomed back.”It’s disappointing, frustrating, you think you have an opportunity to get some points here tonight and you let it slip away,” Smith said. ”So it hurts. We needed tonight’s game. It was a big game for us and we let it slide again.”Arizona went up 1-0 on Panik’s goal at 5:15 of the second. Panik fired in a wrist shot from his knees off Clayton Keller’s cross-ice pass. Keller, a rookie, scored a point in his fifth straight game and has nine in his last 10 games. His 53 points lead the Coyotes this season.The Flames tied it on Hamilton’s goal at 9:05 of the second, his 16th of the season. Hamilton’s 43 points lead Calgary defensemen.The Flames took the lead with 4:32 left in the middle period as Monahan put in a rebound for his team-leading 31st. The advantage lasted just two minutes.Domi recorded his second three-point night of the season.”I’ll take it Artemi Panarin Jersey , but all that matters is the two points,” Domi said.Neither team scored in the first period, but a goal by Monahan at with about seven minutes to go was disallowed because of a delayed penalty. The Coyotes totaled six penalty minutes in the first, all related to physical play and scuffles with Flames players.Domi was called for high sticking and raised his penalty-minute total to 67, which leads the Coyotes.NOTES: The Coyotes were without head coach Rick Tocchet on Monday, as he left the team to attend his mother’s funeral near Toronto. Tocchet is expected to rejoin the Coyotes on Wednesday when they visit Buffalo. … The Coyotes embark on a six-game road trip after Monday’s game and will play eight of their final 10 regular-season games away from home. … Flames D TJ Brodie missed his first game of the season, scratched due to an upper-body injury suffered Sunday at Vegas. … F Matthew Tkachuk was also scratched, missing his fourth straight game with an upper-body injury. … C Sam Bennett served four penalty minutes for roughing.UP NEXTFlames: Host Anaheim on Wednesday night.Coyotes: At Buffalo on Wednesday night. WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Kyle Connor ended a 10-game pointless streak with a goal to help the Winnipeg Jets beat the Dallas Stars 5-1 on Sunday.Adam Lowry, Tyler Myers http://www.officialcoyotes.com/authentic...son-jersey , Bryan Little and Josh Morrissey, with an empty-net goal, also scored. Morrissey added an assist, Jacob Trouba had two, and Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves.“Nothing’s really changed too much from my game,” Connor said. “I thought I was a little quicker tonight, played with lots of speed.”The Jets rebounded from a 4-0 loss to Pittsburgh on Friday night.Alexander Radulov had a power-play goal for the Stars. They lost for the first time in regulation in their last six games (4-1-1).“I think it’s only going to get harder,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery said. “The intensity in the second half is going to pick up and you know that’s one of our better road games of the year and we still didn’t come out on top. So you know we still got to keep staying with it and get better.”After Lowry was called for goaltender interference, John Klingberg’s shot from the point went in off Radulov at 1:56 of the second.Radulov has a goal and five assists during a three-game points streak. Tyler Seguin was credited with the second assist for his 300th NHL assist. He extended his points streak to five games, with four goals and three assists.Lowry got some satisfaction exactly a minute later with the equalizer after getting his own rebound and firing the puck past Ben Bishop.“It was nice to get a shift a minute after and be able to go out and redeem yourself Richard Panik Jersey ,” Lowry said. “It doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes you’ve got to sit and stew. But it’s important you don’t dwell on it and become frustrated and let it affect the rest of your game.”Myers’ wraparound made it 2-1 at 18:56.Connor extended Winnipeg’s lead at 1:15 of the third with a blast from the high slot. He was back on the top line with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler in Winnipeg’s first game without winger Nikolaj Ehlers, who’s out with an upper-body injury for at least a month.The Stars pulled Bishop with five minutes remaining and Morrissey notched his fifth goal of the season at 16:30 while the Jets were short-handed. With Bishop back in net, Little scored with 18 seconds left.Bishop stopped 25 shots.“It was one of those nights where you weren’t getting the bounces, but I felt pretty good,” Bishop said. “You’ve got to find a way to make a couple more saves there at the end.”UP NEXT:Stars: At St. Louis on Tuesday night.Jets: Host Colorado on Tuesday night.
