For 56 minutes, the Arizona Coyotes

Post by laiyongcai92 » Tue Apr 16, 2019 10:18 am

GLENDALE Womens Anze Kopitar Jersey , Ariz. (AP) — were in control defensively against the playoff-contending Dallas Stars. That situation changed quickly, but the Coyotes held on.Alex Galchenyuk scored twice and assisted on another goal, and Darcy Kuemper stopped 33 shots to help the Coyotes beat the Stars 3-2 on Saturday.The Coyotes ended a five-game losing streak and kept pace in the battle for a Western Conference wild card spot, while the Stars lost for the second time in seven games and ended a six-game points streak.Arizona also ended a nine-game losing streak overall to the Stars with its first win since March of 2016.“We lost a game like that last time in Dallas,” Galchenyuk said. “Guys in the end made a lot of great blocks, and we’re happy we got the win.”Alex Goligoski also scored for Arizona. His goal came on a power play in the first period, at 8:49, with Galchenyuk earning an assist. Nick Cousins chipped in two assists.The Stars made it close with two goals in 27 seconds late in the game. Brett Ritchie scored with 3:39 left, and Alexander Radulov made it 3-2 with 3:12 to go when he put in a shot that deflected off a Coyotes defender.The Stars pulled goaltender Anton Khudobin with a little over a minute left, but the Coyotes survived. Khudobin had 35 saves.“I thought they did a really good job at pressuring. I also thought we did break them down, but we just didn’t make finishing plays,” Stars coach Jim Montgomery said. “Their one-timers were right in the wheelhouse. We had opportunities for one-timers and we didn’t put it right in the wheelhouse. We were a little off with our passing execution on the power play.”Galchenyuk also scored on a man advantage, at 15:31 of the second. The Coyotes scored two power-play goals in a game for the third time this season.“It’s been up and down. Definitely working on finding my consistency and finding my game Authentic Derek Forbort Jersey Kids ,” Galchenyuk said.The Coyotes went ahead 3-0 with Galchenyuk’s second goal of the day. Nick Cousins dug a Stars turnover out off the boards behind the net and fed Clayton Keller, whose pass to an open Galchenyuk produced a quick shot past Khudobin at 3:39 of the third period.Goligoski’s goal, his third of the season, ended a streak of four straight games without a power-play goal for the Coyotes. Jordan Oesterle was credited with an assist and has a point in four straight games, a career best.“We felt like we were in control the entire way until the very end there,” Goligoski said. “They got a couple of bounces and made a nice play. Any way to get two points right now, so that was a big win for us.”Galchenyuk scored his 10th and 11th goals of the season, and he has 14 points in 12 career games against the Stars. Six Coyotes players have 10 or more goals this season, with five players at 11.“We were really decisive, and that’s what we need on the power play,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. “We had to have this win … and it was a nice win.”NOTES: Newly acquired C Emil Pettersson, who arrived to the Coyotes on Friday in a trade with the Nashville Predators, will report to AHL Tucson. … F Lawson Crouse was called for boarding in the first period and served a 2-minute penalty. He leads Arizona with 60 penalty minutes this season. … The player Crouse hit, Dallas D Roman Polak Youth Dion Phaneuf Jersey , was evaluated for a concussion and didn’t return. D Jamie Oleksiak was cut on the arm in the game and needed stitches but returned. … G Ben Bishop missed his second straight game with an injury but is expected to be ready by Tuesday.UP NEXTDallas: At Florida on Tuesday.Arizona: At Vegas on Tuesday. Jason Botterill has experienced both sides of the spectrum in confronting the challenges of building a competitive NHL team versus trying to sustain one.In Buffalo, the Sabres’ second-year general manager is attempting to rebuild from scratch a team in the midst of a franchise-worst, seven-year playoff drought. In his previous job as assistant GM in Pittsburgh, the test was keeping together a Sidney Crosby-led core of a team that became the first in nearly 20 years to repeat as Stanley Cup champions in 2016-17.Botterill noted the common denominator for both comes down to scouting.“You’re always searching for talent,” Botterill said. “So it gets back to the importance of finding players that are going to join your system.”Teams at the bottom need to stockpile young talent, and hope it eventually jells. The Sabres, for example, enter this season with the top new player to watch in 18-year-old defenseman Rasmus Dahlin , the No. 1 pick in this year’s draft.Other rebuilding teams are counting on their youngsters to make immediate impacts.In Ottawa, the Senators are turning to rookie first-round pick Brady Tkachuk. In Vancouver, there’s center Elias Pettersson. The Carolina Hurricanes, meanwhile, are counting on forward Andrei Svechnikov, the No. 2 pick Drew Doughty Jersey , to help a franchise snap a nine-season playoff drought — the NHL’s longest active streak.There’s pressure on the league’s elite, too.Winning teams lack the luxury of high draft picks, and are required to discover hidden gems in the draft and signing European and college free agents.As Penguins GM Jim Rutherford also noted, the NHL’s salary-cap system means successful teams have a more difficult time retaining their own talent.“You want to keep those players, but you can’t,” Rutherford said. “We went through it two years ago when we lost a bunch of real key players. There’s nothing to do about it. You can’t.”Valuable as they were, forward Chris Kunitz, goalie Marc Andre-Fleury, defensemen Eric Fehr and Ian Cole, and in this offseason’s case, forward Conor Sheary, were among the players the Penguins were unable to retain.Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman, who won nine Stanley Cup titles between three teams, said the salary cap makes it more difficult to maintain a contender http://www.officialkings.com/authentic- ... own-jersey , though it’s not all that different since winning his first championship with the 1973 Montreal Canadiens.“The challenge is you have to have players coming in the front door,” Bowman said. “When I was in Montreal, they had a slogan that was in the dressing room. It said ‘And the kids go marching on.’ That was 50 years ago, but it’s so much more now.”A list of some of the top newcomers (and one familiar returnee) to look out for this season:RASMUS DAHLIN, Buffalo Sabres defensemanHe’s a smooth-skating, heads-up play-making Swedish-born blue-liner, who has shown a fearless ability of jumping into the rush. Dahlin will require time to adapt to the smaller NHL ice surface and has shown signs of being a little too cavalier with the puck in committing turnovers. He is improving as a defender, and expected to quarterback the top power-play unit. The Sabres intend to allow Dahlin to learn from his mistakes in giving him plenty of playing time this year.ELIAS PETTERSSON, Vancouver Canucks centerWith Vancouver’s 2018 first-round draft pick defenseman Quinn Hughes committed to playing this season at Michigan, there’s plenty of buzz over Pettersson, the No. 5 overall pick in 2017. He’s coming off a season in which he helped Vaxjo win the Swedish Elite League championship and earned regular-season and playoff MVP honors.RYAN DONATO, Boston Bruins forwardAfter spending three seasons playing at Harvard for his father, former NHL player Ted Donato, the 22-year-old got a head start on his NHL career by scoring five goals and nine points in 12 games for the Bruins last season.WARREN FOEGELE Jake Muzzin Jersey , Carolina Hurricanes left wingThough the jury remains out as to whether Svechnikov will spend the entire season in Carolina, the Hurricanes are high on Foegele, their 2014 third-round pick.“He’s what we want in a Hurricane,” first-year coach Rod Brind’Amour told The Charlotte Observer this week. Foegele had two goals and an assist in his first two NHL games last season, and also finished second in AHL Charlotte with 28 goals as a rookie.BRADY TKACHUK, Ottawa Senators forwardSelected with the No. 4 pick in the draft, the son of former NHL star Keith Tkachuk is considered a key building block of a Senators team rebuilding from scratch. At 19, he overcame a slow start in his freshman year at Boston University to score eight goals and 31 points in 40 games. Ottawa’s youth movement also includes Colin White, a 2015 first-round pick, who had two goals and four assists in 21 NHL games last season.ILYA KOVALCHUK, Los Angeles Kings left wingHe’s back. After spending the past five seasons playing in the Kontinental Hockey League, the NHL’s 2001 No. 1 draft pick has returned to North America after signing a three-year contract with the Kings. At 35, Kovalchuk showed he’s not lost a step in splitting two Vegas defenseman and scoring his first preseason goal in a 7-2 loss last week. Kovalchuk has 417 goals and 816 points in 816 career games.
