The Edmonton Oilers broke the ice with a four-goal second period (22. helmikuuta 2019, klo 05:11) Lainaa  
DENVER (AP) ¡ª The Edmonton Oilers broke the ice with a four-goal second period. As for the shattered glass in the penalty box Adidas Adam Cracknell Jersey , it wasn¡¯t their fault.Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored twice in the decisive second period, Mikko Koskinen stopped 39 shots and the Oilers extended their winning streak to four games with a 6-4 victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night.¡°We didn¡¯t give them a lot of time to breathe,¡± Nugent-Hopkins said about the middle period. ¡°We were in their face a lot and putting pucks right back into their zone. That was our plan. We wanted to keep them hemmed in.¡±Connor McDavid added a goal and an assist as the Oilers improved to 8-2-1 since coach Ken Hitchcock took over a struggling team on Nov. 20.Tempers flared in the third period, with Matt Calvert and Matt Benning squaring off and drawing penalties for fighting. As Benning went to the visitors¡¯ penalty box, a fan appeared to shatter the glass by tapping on it. Benning had to sit on a chair down the tunnel from the bench to serve his time as the shards were swept up.¡°It was definitely weird. I just sat in the hallway,¡± Benning said. ¡°It¡¯s kind of boring back there. ¡­ Five minutes for being a bad boy.¡±Kyle Brodziak scored his first goal in more than a month, Leon Draisaitl added another in his 300th NHL game and defenseman Darnell Nurse got into the scoring act with a slap shot early in the third.Mikko Rantanen, the league¡¯s leading scorer, had a goal and three assists to give him at least a point in 12 straight games. It¡¯s tied for the longest active streak in the NHL with Alex Ovechkin.Gabriel Landeskog had two goals and Colin Wilson added another for the Avs Adidas Josh Jooris Jersey , who have lost three of four.¡°There¡¯s going to be dips in your season where you¡¯re not happy with the way you¡¯re playing,¡± defenseman Erik Johnson said. ¡°There¡¯s still confidence that we¡¯re going to bounce back and go on another streak here.¡±Edmonton was up 1-0 heading into the second before Nugent-Hopkins scored twice over a 4:11 stretch to chase Semyon Varlamov. Philipp Grubauer entered and McDavid quickly added another.After Rantanen beat Koskinen, Draisaitl gave the Oilers a 5-1 advantage by knocking in a rebound. Nugent-Hopkins nearly had his third goal of the second period, only to have his wrist shot turned back by Grubauer.Trailing 6-3 late, the Avalanche pulled Grubauer and it led to Landeskog¡¯s goal.Allowing three goals in the third period didn¡¯t sit well with Koskinen.¡°That¡¯s the dangerous part when you have a big lead. You kind of start believing the game is over. But it¡¯s never over,¡± Koskinen said. ¡°That¡¯s a little bit what happened with me. I need to be better than that.¡±This has been a rough stretch for Colorado, which has allowed 21 goals over the last four games.¡°We cracked. We fragmented. Then we got fancy and had some turnovers,¡± Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. ¡°Some of our habits went bad and they stretched out the lead. We should be confident in our ability. We have to play confident and stick to our game.¡±With his big game, Rantanen reached 52 points. It¡¯s the second-most through 31 games in Avalanche history Adidas Timothy Liljegren Jersey , trailing only Peter Forsberg (53 points during the 1995-96 season).¡°Mikko is one of the best in the league right now,¡± teammate Nathan MacKinnon said. ¡°If he was in New York, he¡¯d probably be in that conversation a lot more. Since we¡¯re in Colorado, it¡¯s tougher. He¡¯s so good and so important for the team.¡±NOTES: Nine different Oilers had an assist. ¡­ Avalanche forward Vladislav Kamenev will have shoulder surgery. ¡­ F Alexander Kerfoot was a scratch with an undisclosed injury. ¡­ The Avs have played the fewest games at home so far this season. They¡¯re 6-3-3 at Pepsi Center.UP NEXTOilers: Start a back-to-back Thursday in Winnipeg before a home game against Philadelphia.Avalanche: Play in St. Louis on Friday. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) ¡ª The Nashville Predators credited their defensive effort after their latest win.Kevin Fiala scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period and the Predators beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 Monday night. Ryan Ellis also scored and Pekka Rinne stopped 21 shots to help Nashville win its second straight.¡°I thought we were really good defensively tonight,¡± Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. ¡°They¡¯ve got a lot of tools over there, a lot of people that can hurt you, certainly that top line and they¡¯ve got some guys from the back end that can really move the puck and add to the rush.¡±Rinne stopped eight shots in the first, five in the second and eight in the third. Five of the eight Rinne turned away in the third came in the final 1:17 with Hutton lifted for an extra attacker ¡ª including a stop on a slap shot by the Sabres¡¯ Jack Eichel with 15.4 seconds remaining.¡°That was one of our better defensive games all year Adidas Tyler Ennis Jersey ,¡± Rinne said. ¡°Guys did an extremely good job just staying with it. ¡­ They have a lot of team speed and they¡¯re top couple of lines are pretty dangerous.¡±Sam Reinhart had a goal for Buffalo, which is 0-2-1 since a 10-game winning streak ¡ª with each loss coming by one goal. Carter Hutton had 23 saves.¡°It seems like we¡¯ve been having trouble for a little bit here,¡± Reinhart said. ¡°So we¡¯ve got to figure that out, get back to what gave us success earlier.¡±On the Predators¡¯ go-ahead goal, Craig Smith had the puck in the left corner and found Fiala at the left faceoff dot, where he snapped a quick wrist shot between Hutton¡¯s pads with 3:26 left in the middle period. It gave Fiala six points in his last six games.Reinhart had tied the score 1-1 earlier in the period. After a mad scramble in front, Reinhart¡¯s backhand was turned aside by Rinne but Nashville captain Roman Josi¡¯s clearing attempt with his backhand went into the net, giving Reinhart his seventh of the season at 5:20.¡°I did like the shot mentality in that little spurt,¡± Sabres coach Phil Housley said. ¡°I thought there were times where we did control the play. But other than that Adidas Antoine Roussel Jersey , I didn¡¯t mind the way we played. I just thought we needed to generate more.¡±Housley served as an assistant coach with the Predators for four seasons prior to getting the head coaching job in Buffalo.Ellis scored the game¡¯s first goal with 3:35 left in the first. With the Predators on a power play, Josi sent a pass from the right point to Ellis at the top of the left faceoff circle, and Ellis fired a one-timer high to Hutton¡¯s glove side.¡°Great win for us, I think especially the defense played well and Peks was Peks like always,¡± Josi said. ¡°It¡¯s a huge win. That¡¯s a good team over there. They¡¯re playing really well this year.¡±NOTES: The road team had won the previous six matchups between the teams. ¡­ Nashville is 15-1-0 this season when scoring first. ¡­ Predators C Nick Bonino returned to the lineup after missing one game with an illness. ¡­ Reinhart has six goals and one assist in seven career games against Nashville. ¡­ Hutton, who served as Rinne¡¯s backup in Nashville for three seasons beginning in the 2013-14 season, dropped to 0-3-1 against his former team.UP NEXTSabres: Host Toronto on Tuesday night to open a stretch of four straight at home.Predators: At Vancouver on Thursday night.
