Panthers beat Knights, spoil ex-coach’s return

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 06:35:47 UT

Aaron Ekblad helped the Panthers get a big win and spoil former coach Gerard Gallant’s return to Sunrise, Fla., on Friday night. Ekblad scored 40 seconds into overtime to give Florida a 4-3 victory over Gallant’s new team, the Vegas Golden Knights. Ekblad grabbed a rebound off a shot by Aleksander Barkov in the high slot and fired it past goalie Malcolm Subban. “One of their players batted it out (of the net) and right on my stick,” Ekblad said. “Got lucky it sat nice and didn’t bounce over.” Gallant, fired by the Panthers in November 2016, was hired to coach the expansion Golden Knights in April.

Sharks fall to streaking Colorado

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 07:05:10 UT

DENVER — The Colorado Avalanche looked unstoppable early and shaky down the stretch in nearly blowing a big lead. Bottom line: The streak is alive. Nathan MacKinnon scored twice during a 58-second span in the first period, Matt Nieto added a late insurance goal and the Avalanche won their eighth straight by holding off the Sharks 5-3 on Thursday night. Carl Soderberg also scored, and Mikko Rantanen had a goal and two assists for the Avs, who’ve won eight in a row for the first time since the 2005-06 season. It’s tied for the third longest streak in franchise history. Even more, Colorado has not trailed during the stretch and has outscored teams by a 34-13 margin.

Marc-Andre Fleury, Vegas stop Tampa Bay

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 07:02:26 UT

Marc-Andre Fleury made 28 saves, David Perron had a goal and an assist, and the visiting Vegas Golden Knights beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-1 on Thursday in a matchup of conference leaders. Fleury made a number of impressive stops, including on a left-circle shot by Steven Stamkos and an in-close chance from Nikita Kucherov during the second period. The former Pittsburgh goalie is 19-11-4 against the Lightning. “They are a great challenge for us, the best team in the league,” Fleury said. “We had a great game. The guys held the puck, took their timing away.” James Neal opened the scoring 56 seconds into the first, and Nate Schmidt made it 2-0 with 3:57 left in the period.

Juuse Saros finds rhythm in goal as Predators beat Golden Knights

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 06:25:55 UT

While his teammates enjoyed some time off with a bye week, Juuse Saros kept working. It paid off for the Predators on Tuesday night. Saros made 43 saves, Kevin Fiala scored eight minutes into the third period and host Nashville beat the Vegas Golden Knights 1-0. Nashville played its first game in a week and has won three straight. The shutout was the third of the season for Saros and the fourth of his career. During Nashville’s bye week, the Predators assigned Saros to the Milwaukee Admirals, their American Hockey League affiliate, where he played in three games, winning twice.

Sharks win on Vlasic’s OT goal

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 23:37:12 UT

Marc-Edouard Vlasic found himself in the right place at the right time to save the Sharks on Saturday night. The defenseman’s fifth goal of the season at 2:42 of overtime gave the hosts a wild 6-5 win over the Arizona Coyotes at sold-out SAP Center. “Lucky bounce,” Vlasic said. “It popped up, I crashed the net and I was lucky enough to poke it in.” No one is quite sure if Vlasic really touched a puck that was shot by Joe Pavelski. Arizona goalie Scott Wedgewood got only a piece of the puck, which popped over him into the crease before Vlasic arrived to push Coyotes forward Christian Dvorak and the puck over the line.

Army claims NHL team can’t trademark ‘Vegas Golden Knights’

Fri, 12 Jan 2018 06:24:05 UT

The U.S. Army has filed a challenge opposing the application of the NHL’s newest franchise to register the trademark “Vegas Golden Knights.” In a claim filed Wednesday with the U.S. Trademark Trial and Appeal Board in suburban Washington, the Army claims it will be damaged by registration of the marque and says it has acquired exclusive rights to it that predate any rights claimed by the NHL team. The Army says it has used the Golden Knights nickname since the late 1960s for its parachute team, public relations and recruiting, and claims it owns “common law rights” for the color schemes that combine black and gold and yellow and white. The challenge by the U.S.

Mon, 8 Jan 2018 06:34:07 UT

WINNIPEG, Manitoba — Sharks fans waiting for Logan Couture to regain his scoring touch got a good sign Sunday. The San Jose center scored his first goal since Dec. 9, his team-leading 16th, in the second period against Winnipeg. Unfortunately for the Sharks, the goal made little difference as San Jose (21-13-6) ended a five-game trip with a 4-1 loss to the Jets. Couture’s goal came on a power play with his team down 2-0 with 5:13 left in the second. “We would have liked to get another power-play goal and shut them down” on the penalty kill, said Couture, who had three assists against Ottawa on Friday. “But they scored some timely goals that won the game.

Hutton makes 32 saves as Blues snap Golden Knights’ win streak

Fri, 5 Jan 2018 05:58:08 UT

Carter Hutton isn’t playing like a backup goalie for the St. Louis Blues. He’s playing like one of the game’s best. Paul Stastny broke a third-period tie, Hutton continued his hot play in goal and host St. Louis beat the Vegas Golden Knights 2-1 on Thursday night for their third straight win. Vegas’ NHL expansion record eight-game winning streak snapped. Hutton made 32 saves, including two tough stops early in the third while the game was tied. “Some of the saves he’s making — probably the last three games, he’s got six that should be in the top 10 this year,” Blues wing Alexander Steensaid.

Hairy fight sparks Maple Leafs’ 3-2 win over the Sharks

Fri, 5 Jan 2018 05:05:55 UT

TORONTO — Nazem Kadri was an assist short of a bizarre Gordie Howe hat trick. Toronto’s Kadri ripped out part of Sharks center Joe Thornton’s mountain-man beard in a fight off the opening faceoff and scored in regulation in the Maple Leafs’ 3-2 shootout victory over San Jose on Thursday. Thornton and Kadri dropped the gloves just two seconds after being tossed out of the opening faceoff for slashing each other like manic lumberjacks. Thornton’s beard took a beating in the scrap, thanks to Kadri hanging on to it rather than Thornton’s jersey as the two battled. A hunk of facial hair was left on the ice like a mini tumbleweed. “I ended up with a piece of it in my hand,” Kadri said.

Athanasiou’s 2nd goal gives Red Wings OT win over Senators

Thu, 4 Jan 2018 05:18:03 UT

Andreas Athanasiou scored six seconds into overtime to give the host Detroit Red Wings a 2-1 victory over the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday night. Dylan Larkin took the opening faceoff in overtime and, after the puck went forward a bit, both Athanasiou and Ottawa’s Erik Karlsson reached for it. Athanasiou was able to control it and skated in behind Karlsson on a breakaway. He beat goalie Craig Anderson with a backhander high to the glove side. Blackhawks 5, Rangers 2: Patrick Sharp broke a tie early in the third and visiting Chicago beat New York.
