NEW YORK — After making an emotional return to Nassau Antworten

NEW YORK — After making an emotional return to Nassau Coliseum Saturday night , the New York Islanders will have to adjust to playing in their second home Tuesday.But the Islanders won’t be the only team at Barclays Center coming off an exhilarating and exhausting victory Tuesday night, when they host the Winnipeg Jets in the first game of the season between the two squads.The Islanders, playing at their original home for the first time since the 2015 playoffs, came back from a two-goal deficit Saturday night to edge the Columbus Blue Jackets, 3-2. The Jets outdid that Sunday night, when they came back from a three-goal third-period deficit to beat the host New York Rangers, 4-3, in the shootout.Article continues below ...The Islanders (13-9-3) will alternate locales for each of their six home games this month, with the odd-numbered games being played at the Coliseum and the even-numbered games at Barclays Center. They will continue splitting games between the two arenas until late February, when they begin a season-ending stretch of 12 straight home games at the Coliseum.The unusual arrangement is a best-of-a-bad situation between the Islanders and the building management group that runs both Barclays Center and the Nassau Coliseum Montreal Canadiens T-Shirts Authentic , which is preparing to lose the Islanders as a tenant after the team announced plans late last year to build a hockey-specific arena at the Nassau/Queens border in time for the 2021-22 season.The move back to the franchise’s roots was embraced by Islanders fans, who filled the 13,900-seat Coliseum to raucous capacity Saturday night. Afterward, head coach Barry Trotz acknowledged it will take some getting used to the sparse crowds and deadened atmosphere at Barclays, where the Islanders averaged just 10,447 fans — the lowest average attendance in the NHL — in their first 11 home dates.“It’s going to be quite different, it’s going to be a little quieter, I know that,” Trotz said during a postgame press conference in which chants of “LET’S GO ISLANDERS!” echoed outside the room. “We’re going to have to be self-motivated.”The Jets (15-8-2) are also a potential candidate for a letdown after they forced overtime by scoring three times in a span of a little more than 15 minutes in the third period before Mark Scheifele scored the decisive goal in the shootout.“To be down 3-0 and keep going, right until the very end Montreal Canadiens Hoodies Authentic , (was) impressive,” Jets head coach Paul Maurice said afterward.It was the second frantic win in as many nights for Winnipeg, which opened a three-game road trip to New York-area locales by blowing a two-goal lead in the third period of a 4-3 overtime win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. Maurice said he’s hopeful an off-day Monday will help recharge the Jets.“We’re going to play three road games and stay in the same hotel,” Maurice said. “So it’s not your standard grinder road trip.”Neither team has announced a starting goalie for Tuesday, though it is likely number one goalies Thomas Greiss and Connor Hellebuyck will be in net after earning the wins for the Islanders and Jets on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Greiss made 28 saves against the Blue Jackets and Hellebuyck recorded 16 saves against the Rangers.Greiss is 4-1-1 in six career appearances against the Jets. Hellebuyck is 2-1-0 in three games against the Islanders. The Los Angeles Kings and Vancouver Canucks will be looking for landing spots to halt their free falls when they meet for the first time this season Saturday night at Staples Center.The Kings (7-13-1) have struggled to compile wins all season, while the Canucks (10-13-2) got off to a decent start before losing their past eight games.The Canucks most recently lost 4-0 at the San Jose Sharks on Friday night. Vancouver will be trying to avoid losing nine in a row for the first time since Oct. 22 to Nov. 7, 2016, which was one loss shy of the longest losing streak in team history.Article continues below ...Los Angeles was 4-8-1 under John Stevens when he was fired Nov. 4, and the Kings are 3-5-0 since Willie Desjardins took over. They have yet to win two in a row with Desjardins behind the bench.The Kings may have delivered their poorest effort of the season Wednesday night Montreal Canadiens Hats Authentic , giving up six straight goals before losing 7-3 to the visiting Colorado Avalanche, the eighth time this season they have lost by at least three goals.“We need to get out of it and we need to get out of it now,” Los Angeles defenseman Drew Doughty told reporters after the loss. “We’ve said that for weeks, but I don’t know what to say anymore, honestly.”The Kings have often fallen behind early, allowing the first goal in 13 of 21 games this season, and rarely bounce back. They’re 1-11-1 when falling behind 1-0 this season.Los Angeles tied for fourth in the NHL last season with six wins after it trailed at the start of the third period but hasn’t shown that late-game grit this fall. The Kings are 0-12-0 when trailing to start the third period.After finishing No. 1 on the penalty kill last season with an 85 percent success rate, the Kings dropped to 25th (75 percent) after going 1-for-4 on the penalty kill against Colorado.“Once again, we know what we’ve got to do on the PK and we’re not executing it,” Doughty said. “That’s why they’re making us look foolish Custom Montreal Canadiens Jerseys , and it’s once again about pride and the will to do it.”One of the bright spots of late has been the play off Kings rookie goaltender Cal Petersen and forwards Matt Luff and Austin Wagner.Petersen was overrun by six goals on 31 shots against Colorado before he was lifted early in the third period, but he was impressive in the first three starts of his NHL career, all within a four-day span ending Monday with a 2-0 shutout at the St. Louis Blues.Luff scored his first NHL goal against the Blues and scored another against the Avalanche, giving him three points in the past two games. Wagner scored his first NHL goal against the Avalanche and also assisted on Luff’s goal for his first NHL points in his 10th game.“Some of our young guys have given us some good performances,” Desjardins said. “Petersen’s been good in net. He had a tough one (Wednesday) night, but it wasn’t him at all. It was good to see Luff and Wagner capitalize. There are some things there where we’re getting a little bit more out of our young players, which is good to see.”
