NEWARK Tampa Bay Lightning Hoodies Authentic , N.J. (AP) — They came out fast, got contributions from all four lines, their defense and goaltender, and routed the Devils 7-2 on Tuesday night.“I think tonight we came out ready to play,” said Maple Leafs forward Mitch Marner, who scored a goal. “We know they’ve got a good team over there … so we knew coming in here was going to be a hard match and I think we came in, got the puck behind them which is what we needed to, and that’s why we were successful.”This wasn’t much of a game after John Tavares Tampa Bay Lightning Hats Authentic , Auston Matthews and Patrick Marleau scored in the opening 13:38.Nazem Kadri matched his career high with three assists, Marner and Morgan Rielly added second-period goals and Tyler Ennis had two in the closing minutes as Toronto embarrassed New Jersey for the second time this season. The win was their seventh in 11 games (7-2-2).Frederik Andersen made 27 saves as the Maple Leafs finished a five-game trip with a 2-2-1 record.“For us, we hadn’t been getting the results we’ve wanted to get over the past week, week-and-a-half, and it was about time for us to stand up and I thought we responded well,” Kadri said.Sami Vatanen and Nico Hischier scored for the struggling Devils, who are 3-6-6 in their last 15 games. Keith Kinkaid gave up five goals on 21 shots before being lifted with New Jersey down 5-1 after 40 minutes.“Tonight is not something you can just look past,” Devils coach John Hynes said. “We have to dig into it and get some answers.”The Maple Leafs took the lead just seconds after the Devils’ killed off Blake Coleman’s penalty.Hischier led a 2-on-1 break into the Toronto zone that Rielly broke up Custom Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys , triggering a 3-on-1 counterattack.Matthews sent a pass to Kadri in the right circle, and he found Tavares coming down the middle for his 21st goal at 6:01.Matthews doubled the lead less than two minutes later, depositing a loose puck into an open net. The Devils challenged the call, saying Matthews created the chance for his 17th goal by pushing defenseman Damon Severson into Kinkaid. The goal stood.Marleau made it 3-0 with 6:22 left in the period when Kadri’s pass from the sideboard was mishandled by Vatanen and Kinkaid for a tap-in.“I don’t know if we maintained it for 60 (minutes) but we really started good, came out, got on the cycle and scored some big goals,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. “Good win for our team.”Vatanen scored on a rising slap shot with 1:16 left in the first period but Marner pushed the lead back to three goals, putting in the rebound of Tavares’ shot that banged off the goalpost. Rielly scored from the left circle with less than a second left in the second period.Mackenzie Blackwood www.officialmapleleafsproshop.com , who was called up from Binghamton on Monday when Cory Schneider was placed on injured reserve with an abdominal strain, made his NHL debut gave up the two late goals to Ennis.“Our group in here, we can’t take nights off.

EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) Patience paid off for the Boston Bruins on Tuesday night.David Krejci broke a tie with 1:04 remaining and Boston rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Edmonton Oilers.Noel Acciari and Matt Grzelcyk also scored for the Bruins (37-13-8) Toronto Maple Leafs T-Shirts Authentic , who have won seven of nine and are one point back of NHL-leading Tampa Bay in the Atlantic Division. Boston trailed 2-0 before scoring three times in the third period.Article continues below ...”We have a will to win,” coach Bruce Cassidy said. ”There are 82 of these and sometimes you just don’t have it, but I think our group is pretty good at pushing right to the end. It would have been easy for us to say it was our third game in four nights and we were playing back-to-back games, and maybe it is not our night after the frustration early on of not being able to finish and (Oilers goalie Cam Talbot) being really good, but we stuck with it.”Bruins goalie Anton Khudobin agreed the key was staying positive after falling behind a team they felt they were outplaying.”If you are thinking things aren’t going your way, then they are never going to go your way,” he said. ”You have to keep positive, keep playing and shooting and you are going to get rewarded. We were rewarded tonight.”Ryan Strome and Jujhar Khaira had the goals for the Oilers (24-31-4) Toronto Maple Leafs Hoodies Authentic , who have lost seven of eight.”At the end of the day, you’re here for wins and losses and it’s tough to take moral victories out of the game,” Strome said. ”We know the position we’re in and that’s a disappointing result after 40 good minutes.”The Oilers scored the game’s first goal with 1:31 left in the opening period – despite being outshot 13-2 to that point – when Strome beat Khudobin on a 2-on-1 break for his ninth of the season.The Bruins came close five minutes into the second when David Pastrnak’s shot clanged off the post behind Talbot, but instead the Oilers extended their lead just more than six minutes later when a knuckler by Khaira beat Khudobin up high.The shots favored the Bruins 29-14 through 40 minutes.Boston got on the board 4:37 into the third when Acciari swung a puck in front of the Edmonton net and it bounced off Strome and in to make it 2-1.The Bruins tied it with eight minutes to play after a flurry in front led to Grzelcyk putting the puck past a diving Talbot.Boston completed the comeback with just 64 seconds to play in the third, after the Oilers lost control of the puck in their own end. Danton Heinen sent it out in front, allowing Krejci to score his 11th of the season.NOTES: It was the second and final meeting this season between the teams. The Oilers took the first game 4-2 in Boston on Nov. 26. … Oilers defenseman Kris Russell played his 700th NHL game. … The Bruins acquired D Nick Holden from the New York Rangers for minor league defenseman Rob O’Gara and their third-round pick in this year’s draft.
