OTTAWA Brett Howden Jersey Womens
, Ontario (AP) Mike Hoffman’s 100th career goal was a real gem.Hoffman went end-to-end before slipping a shot past Juuse Saros 3:01 into overtime, lifting the Ottawa Senators to a 4-3 victory against the Nashville Predators on Thursday night.”It was good to hit a milestone like that and it makes it even more special when it’s an overtime winner,” Hoffman said. ”I guess it couldn’t have happened at a better time.”Chris DiDomenico, Max McCormick and Magnus Paajarvi also scored as Ottawa (19-25-9) won for the fourth time in five games. Craig Anderson made 35 saves for his 15th win of the season.”I think we’ve got guys stepping up,” Anderson said. ”When someone goes down with an injury another guy can fill that role and take advantage of that time. We’ve got guys coming in and competing and we’re playing pretty well as a team right now.”P.K. Subban scored twice for the Predators (32-12-9), and Calle Jarnkrok picked up his 13th goal. Saros stopped 32 shots.Nashville moved into a first-place tie with Winnipeg in the Central Division with 73 points apiece, but the Predators were disappointed to have the extra point slip away.”We want to be the best team in the league and we had an opportunity to possibly do that and we didn’t get it,” said Subban. ”It was a good effort to at least get a point out of it Paul Carey Jersey Womens
, but we have to learn. The last two games we haven’t been able to play a full 60 minutes and we have to learn from that.”Veteran forward Kyle Turris returned to Ottawa for the first time since he was traded to the Predators in November. He received a standing ovation during a video tribute in the first period.”It was really nice of the Sens organization to do,” Turris said. ”The support from the fans, the video they put together that encompasses my six years here, I loved it. It’s a great organization and I was very thankful to be a part of it.”Turris shared a few moments with his former teammates on the ice and admitted it was nice to be able to have some fun with the situation.The Predators tied it at 3 when Subban ripped a shot past Anderson with under five minutes remaining in regulation.The Senators scored two second-period goals to take a 3-2 lead after 40 minutes.McCormick, who was recalled from the minors on Tuesday, cut to the net and rang a shot in off the post for his third career goal. Ottawa took the lead on Paajarvi’s first with the Senators on a wraparound midway through the period.”There were so many great story lines in this game from so many players,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. ”You can really call this a solid team win.”Senators captain Erik Karlsson moved into sole possession of third place on the franchise’s points list (492) with an assist on Paajarvi’s goal.Subban opened the scoring 34 seconds into the game when his shot deflected in off Cody Ceci’s skate, but the Senators tied it on DiDomenico’s second in as many games. He took a pass in the slot and beat Saros with a wrist shot.The Predators regained the lead on Jarnkrok’s goal.NOTES: Ottawa’s Jean-Gabriel Pageau played his 300th career game. … Ottawa F Alex Burrows served his first of a 10-game suspension for kneeing New Jersey’s Taylor Hall on Tuesday night.

CHICAGO (AP) — The handful of former Chicago Blackhawks who play for the Arizona Coyotes were excited to see Corey Crawford back on the ice after an extended absence.Vinnie Hinostroza and company also enjoyed skipping town with a win.Hinostroza scored twice against his former team, Antti Raanta made 33 saves and the Coyotes spoiled Crawford’s season debut, beating the sleepy Blackhawks 4-1 on Thursday night.Clayton Keller had a goal and an assist and Lawson Crouse also scored as Arizona improved to 1-1 on a four-game road trip. The Coyotes entered with just four goals in their first five games.“Today we got the scoring going,” Raanta said. “Obviously get new guys on the board, so it’s a big team effort.”The game was tied when Hinostroza got a pass from Oliver Ekman-Larsson and beat Crawford with a high wrist shot from the right circle 8:37 into the second period. It was Hinostroza’s first goal since Chicago traded the speedy forward to Arizona in July so it could shed Marian Hossa’s contract.Keller made it 3-1 when he intercepted a pass by Chris Kunitz and scored on a breakaway in the third, and Hinostroza added an empty-netter with 2:20 left.“I think there were emotions until the first shift Tyson Barrie Jersey
,” said Hinostroza, a Chicago native. “But once you get out there one time, it just turns into a regular game. Kind of forgot all the outside stuff and just played hockey.”Crawford played his first game since Dec. 23, after missing most of last season because of a concussion. The two-time All-Star finished with 27 saves in a remarkably typical performance given his time away.“I think I felt better in the second and third,” he said. “They really didn’t get that many opportunities early. They flipped one in for the first (shot), so it was good to feel one early. We were close all game.”Erik Gustafsson scored Chicago’s only goal in its first game since Sunday. The Blackhawks opened a stretch of three games in four nights with their first regulation loss of the season.“It was our first game where you could say, not good enough,” coach Joel Quenneville said.The crowd of 21 Matt Martin Jersey Womens
,210 cheered loudly when the 33-year-old Crawford was introduced with the starting lineup. He helped Chicago win the Stanley Cup in 2013 and 2015, and the Blackhawks tumbled into last place in the Central Division while he was out last season.The Blackhawks also celebrated the return of Niklas Hjalmarsson for the first time since they traded the steady defenseman to Arizona in June 2017. He received a standing ovation after he was saluted with a highlight video during a break in the first period, and fought back tears as he raised his left arm to acknowledge the response from the crowd.“It was a great moment,” Hjalmarsson said.Hjalmarsson had three of Arizona’s 27 blocked shots, helping Raanta improve to 16-0-3 at the United Center. Raanta made his NHL debut with Chicago in 2013 and became good friends with Crawford while he was with the Blackhawks.“When you see your friend coming back (after) such a long time and playing well already even though I think he didn’t feel perfect, but I think he was doing a great job,” Raanta said. “Just a matter of time when he gets the rhythm back.”Arizona jumped in front when Crouse and Keller skated in for a 2-on-1 in the first period. Keller played it over to Crouse, who one-timed the pass by Crawford at 11:43 for his first point of the season.The Blackhawks tied it in the second when Jonathan Toews set up Gustafsson for a one-timer 6:34 into the period. It was Gustafsson’s first goal of the season.NOTES: Coyotes D Jordan Oesterle Seth Griffith Jersey Womens
, who also came over the Hossa deal, had a team-high five blocks and got an assist on Crouse’s goal. … Toews has at least one point in Chicago’s first six games. … Rookie forward Luke Johnson was assigned to the minors to make room for Crawford, leaving three goaltenders on Chicago’s roster. “With three in four nights, we’ll see how that plays out,” coach Joel Quenneville said.UP NEXTCoyotes: Visit the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.Blackhawks: Visit the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.
