Anze Kopitar’s pass by Allen Antworten

TAMPA Mikael Granlund Jersey , Fla. (AP) The Buffalo Sabres long ago fell out of playoff contention. They still might be a factor in the postseason.Jason Pominville scored on a power play at 1:26 of overtime to give the Sabres a 2-1 victory over the NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.Pominville beat Andrei Vasilevskiy with a one-timer from the left circle off a feed from Rasmus Ristolainen.Evan Rodrigues tied it for Buffalo in the third, and Chad Johnson stopped 21 shots.The victory was the second in a row against Tampa Bay in the past two weeks. The Sabres, last in the Eastern Conference, also knocked off second-place Boston Bruins twice in February.”Everybody really played good defensively,” Buffalo coach Phil Housley said. ”I’ve got to hand it to our guys, they really played hard and took away time and space against a really good hockey team.”Cory Conacher scored for Tampa Bay, which saw a four-game winning streak come to an end, and Vasilevskiy made 32 saves.With a point in the standings for the overtime loss, the Lightning became the first team to reach 90 points this season.”We’ll take the points where we can get them Youth Mikko Koivu Jersey , but we didn’t really deserve the two points tonight,” Tampa Bay defenseman Dan Girardi said. ”We had good spots in the game but against a team that’s not in the playoffs and (if) we want to stay atop our division and the league we need the same effort we had against Toronto (on Monday) with the emotion and desperation and it just wasn’t there tonight.”With NHL scoring leader Nikita Kucherov out with an undisclosed upper-body injury, the Lightning struggled to generate offensive chances and finished with 18 even-strength shots on goal.”There’s one team that looked like they’re getting close to the playoffs and preparing to go to the postseason, and one team looked like they weren’t,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. ”So take that from there, which team was which.”Tampa Bay opened the scoring with 1:57 left in the first period. The puck deflected off the stick of Conacher in front right in to Johnson, but Conacher quickly recovered the rebound and pulled the puck back to his forehand to find the vacated side of the net.Rodrigues tied it with 8:13 left in regulation. After Andrej Sustr fumbled the puck along the boards and lost the puck, Jason Pominville passed off to fed Rodrigues, who lifted the puck to the far post past Vasilevskiy.”I think we had all 20 guys pulling in the right direction ,” Rodrigues said. ”We didn’t have anyone cheating on the wrong side of the puck. We stuck with our game plan. As the game wore we didn’t try cheating for offense. We all stuck to the defensive side of the puck and when you do that you wear the other team down and you get rewarded.”NOTES: The U.S. women’s Olympic champion hockey team was honored before the game. The team held residency camp in nearby Wesley Chapel. … Buffalo RW Kyle Okposo missed the game to be with his wife while she gave birth to a daughter Tuesday. Okposo is expected to join the team in time for Friday’s game at Florida. … The Sabres called up C Seth Griffin from Rochester of the American Hockey League. … Tampa Bay recalled RW Michael Bournival from Syracuse of the AHL. … Tampa Bay’s streak of scoring at least three goals in a game was snapped at 10.UP NEXTLightning: At Dallas on Thursday night.Sabres: At Florida on Friday night. LOS ANGELES (AP) The goals would not come, the losses mounted and the St. Louis Blues appeared trapped in a spiral.They desperately needed something to turn their season – and playoff hopes – around. They might have found just that in a 7-2 demolishing of the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.”It took a toll on them, not scoring,” Blues goalie Jake Allen said. ”We needed one of those games. I don’t know when the last time was we had a game like that.”St. Louis, which had lost nine of its last 10 and averaged just 1.4 goals per game in that stretch, picked up goals from seven players to hand the Kings their worst loss of the season.The five-goal margin matched the Blues’ biggest victories of the season.Robert Bortuzzo, Colton Parayko, Alex Pietrangelo, Ivan Barbashev Brandon Manning Jersey Womens , Vladimir Tarasenko, Kyle Brodziak and Jaden Schwartz scored for the Blues. Allen made 40 saves.”We needed a win,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. ”Obviously, when you can score some goals, what you hope is that some guys can build some confidence off that and carry a little momentum into our next one.”The loss left Los Angeles one point back of Colorado for the second Western Conference wild card, and two points ahead of St. Louis. The Kings had not lost by more than four goals all season.”Our fight on the puck was not at a playoff level if you expect to win this time of year,” Kings coach John Stevens said. ”It’s a little concerning. It’s tough hockey this time of year. You see it every night.”Drew Doughty and Dustin Brown scored for the Kings. Jonathan Quick made 29 saves before he was pulled after the second period, Los Angeles already down 4-1. Jack Campbell stopped 14 of 17 shots in the third.”We got what we deserved,” the Kings’ Dion Phaneuf said. ”When you get beat like this Womens Zach Parise Jersey , you take it. You stand and look at it, and then you move forward.”St. Louis’ first three goals were scored by defensemen.”Your defense scores goals if your forwards are doing things the right way,” Yeo said. ”We played a really strong game today and it gave us a chance.”The Blues jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals from Bortuzzo and Parayko.The Kings briefly appeared as though they would make it a game when Doughty redirected Anze Kopitar’s pass by Allen, but St. Louis answered with goals off turnovers from Pietrangelo and Barbashev to end the period.”We gift-wrapped it for them,” Stevens said.Stevens changed goalies to start the third, a rare move with someone of Quick’s caliber.But the Blues greeted Campbell with goals from Brodziak and Schwartz within the first minute of the third period, and the rout was on.”We couldn’t check a hat tonight,” Stevens said.Despite the results from the previous 10 games, Yeo said he sensed a big game coming.”I felt good about today’s game Cam Ward Jersey Womens ,” Yeo said. ”The way we approached yesterday, the focus I saw in our players, I had a good feeling.”Yeo reunited Brayden Schenn, Tarasenko and Schwartz on the first line, a trio that started the season on a tear but hadn’t played together since December.NOTES: Stevens removed F Alex Iafallo from the first line in the second period to the third line. ”You can make your own conclusions on that one,” Stevens said. … Schwartz had two assists to go with his 20th goal. … Brown’s goal with 15 seconds left gave him 20 for the first time since the 2011-12 season.UP NEXTBlues: Remain in Southern California to visit Anaheim on Monday.Kings: Complete a four-game homestand Monday against Vancouver.—
