WASHINGTON (AP) — It takes something special Antworten

WASHINGTON (AP) — It takes something special for a shot by Alex Ovechkin to surprise a goaltender.That’s exactly what happened to Henrik Lundqvist on Wednesday night when Ovechkin scored the first of two power-play goals to help the Washington Capitals beat the New York Rangers 4-3 in overtime.John Carlson essentially bounced a pass to Ovechkin in such an awkward position that Lundqvist didn’t expect him to get it on net and again was beaten.“I should know with that guy he can shoot from anywhere Jason Pominville Jersey Kids ,” Lundqvist said. “He received a pass and then, boom, he shot it, and before you know it it’s coming at you and I wasn’t able to recover. I learned my lesson there. I’ve played so many times against him I should know to be ready at all times.”Ovechkin’s two goals on Lundqvist gave him 24 in his career, the most he has scored against any goaltender in the NHL. He has six goals in six games to start the season and tied Hall of Famer Dino Ciccarelli for ninth on the all-time list for power-play goals with 232.Asked how he keeps scoring from his usual spot in the faceoff circle, Ovechkin said, “It’s all about luck.”Luck wasn’t on Ovechkin’s side when he hit the post with 3:30 remaining in regulation, but defenseman Matt Niskanen put the puck past a lunging Lundqvist 2:18 into overtime to end Washington’s two-game losing streak. Niskanen credited do-it-all playmaker Evgeny Kuznetsov for setting up the winner.“Nice to score,” Niskanen said. “I didn’t do much. Kuzy did a lot of nice work there. I just had to put it in.”Carlson scored the Capitals’ other goal in regulation Womens Johan Larsson Jersey , and goaltender Braden Holtby stopped 29 of the 32 shots he faced in arguably his sharpest performance so far this season. Holtby’s most important save came with time running out in the second period when he denied Kevin Hayes on a short-handed breakaway.Mika Zibanejad, Jimmy Vesey and Chris Kreider scored for New York, which picked up a point in the second half of a back-to-back after beating Colorado in a shootout Tuesday. Lundqvist made 34 saves as he played for the second consecutive night and battled through fatigue with the kind of play the rebuilding Rangers will need all season.“Personally, every time you play back-to-back, it’s definitely a fun challenge to try to stay sharp,” Lundqvist said. “A little disappointing obviously not to come up with two points when you take it to overtime, but three out of four here in two nights, that’s definitely a good step for us.”Rangers defenseman Neal Pionk had three assists, a positive sign for the Rangers’ youth movement and another signal of coach David Quinn pushing the right buttons. Quinn scratched Pionk earlier in the season and has gotten similar results from other players after taking them out of the lineup.“Neal played outstanding Authentic Justin Bailey Jersey ,” Quinn said. “He probably was our best player. He certainly had a lot of energy. He did a great job on the power play, does a great job on the first goal. He’s a big piece of what we’ve got moving forward.”NOTES: Capitals C Nicklas Backstrom had two assists to reach 598 for his career. … F Pavel Buchnevich returned to the Rangers’ lineup, replacing Cody McLeod. … F Nathan Walker was back in for the Capitals for the first time since Oct. 4. Dmitrij Jaskin was a healthy scratch to clear a spot for Walker … Quinn returned to the arena he won the NCAA title in as an assistant with Boston University in 2009.UP NEXTRangers: Return home to face the Calgary Flames on Sunday.Capitals: Host the winless Florida Panthers on Friday. The Vegas Golden Knights return home Tuesday night to face the Buffalo Sabres after completing their longest road trip of the season Saturday, culminating with a much-needed win against the Philadelphia Flyers.Vegas (2-4-0) suffered losses against Buffalo, Washington and Pittsburgh on the trip, but a stirring 1-0 win over the Flyers puts the Golden Knights in the right frame of mind for their rematch with the Sabres, who are 3-2-0 after opening their West coast swing Saturday night with a 3-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes.The Sabres began the season with a 2-2 homestand, including a 4-2 win over Vegas on Oct. 8 behind two goals by captain Jack Eichel. Buffalo will play five games out west in 10 days. The Golden Knights just finished a five-game trip that spanned seven days.Article continues below ...“It wasn’t our best road trip, but 2-3 is better than 1-4 Kyle Okposo Jersey , so those are valuable points going back west,” said Vegas forward Cody Eakin, who scored the lone goal Saturday late in the third period.Veteran goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury recorded 26 saves against the Flyers in his first shutout of the season. The victory kept the Golden Knights from a fourth straight loss, which never occurred last year in the regular season of their magical inaugural run in the NHL.“It’s been a tough beginning to the season,” Fleury told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “I think our play has been improving throughout the road trip. I don’t know, nobody likes to lose, and we had to finish on a good note.”The difficult road trip is similar to what the Golden Knights experienced last season. The Knights had only three points out of six road games between October and November in 2017. This year’s longest trip had four points in five games.The Golden Knights rebounded from last year’s early struggle on the road by winning six of their next seven games. How will they fare this time around? They have an opportunity to make up some points with the next five games at the T-Mobile Arena.“Just forget about the losses and build off this win,” forward Ryan Carpenter told the Review-Journal after the long road trip. “All season we try to just take it one day at a time and when you lose three in a row, it’s never a good feeling http://www.officialsabres.com/authentic-adidas-rasmus-ristolainen-jersey , especially after having higher expectations this year. But just off confidence, go home, get some rest and be ready for the next game.”Vegas’ defense allowed 14 goals in the first four games of the trip before blanking Philadelphia. The Knights had only eight goals in the five games. They remain without Alex Tuch (lower-body injury) and the suspended Nate Schmidt. Paul Stastny (lower-body) and Deryk Engelland (arm) were injured on the trip. “We feel good leaving the road trip now,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said after Saturday’s game. “It was a tough trip. We’re going back home for a bunch of games and it’s going to be a long flight home but it’s going to be a good flight. We’re 2-4 and we’re battling back.”Buffalo started its road trip in promising fashion with the win over Arizona, which included the first career goal of 18-year-old defenseman Rasmus Dahlin with less than three minutes into the game when he buried a loose puck in the crease.Sabres coach Phil Housley said Dahlin’s teammates were enthusiastic over the goal. Reporters noted that the celebrating Sabres could easily be heard outside the dressing room.“They were really glad,” Dahlin said on NHL.com. “That makes me glad, too. We have a good chemistry on the team. We’re a good team.”
