Carolinas 18th set of back-to-back Zitat · antworten

WINNIPEG - Cam Ward grinned as he described how he felt like a kid making some key saves in his Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Ward stole a pair of goals from Winnipeg centre Bryan Little in the first period, beginning with a pad save during a Jets two-man advantage and then displaying his quickness with a highlight-reel stick stop. Little was about to fire the puck into a wide-open side of the net, but Ward whipped out his stick and the puck hit the paddle. "It was a fun save," Ward said with a chuckle after making 34 stops. "The initial shot was in a position where I knew I was going to have to kick out a bit of a rebound. Just out of pure desperation, I threw my stick out there and made a save that brings you back to the ol street hockey days as a kid. "But Little, I think he got even with me scoring that second goal in the third period so it all evens out." Jets head coach Paul Maurice, who coached the Hurricanes for parts of 11 seasons, even tipped his hat to Ward. "Cam Ward was the story of this hockey game," Maurice said. "He was the best player on the ice." The Jets had mounted a 9-0 advantage in shots on goal on the way to a 13-6 gap at the end of a scoreless first period. Ward then got some offensive help from his teammates, as brothers Eric and Jordan Staal and Riley Nash each scored within a span of two minutes and 53 seconds in the second. Defenceman Andrej Sekera had a pair of assists for the Hurricanes (31-31-9) to give him 31 on the season to go with 11 goals. Jets centre Jim Slater had scored his first goal of an injury-marred season 7:48 into the second, but Eric Staal got the roll going 37 seconds later with his 17th goal of the season. Little scored his 21st goal of the season for Winnipeg (32-31-9) 1:27 into the third period. Al Montoya stopped 29 shots while making his fourth straight start in net for Winnipeg since Ondrej Pavelec went out with a lower-body injury. Hes expected to return to action next week. Montoya was pointing the finger at himself for the loss. "We came out firing. Their goaltender played well," Montoya said. "I didnt make the saves I needed to make and at the end of the day that cost us the game." Maurice said Montoya was wrong. "If a guy is clearly the reason youre in the hole, Ill get him out of the net before that happens," Maurice said. "They get to this level thinking they should stop everything. He will feel that because hes got a front-row seat to the way the guy at the other end is playing so its magnified." Carolina head coach Kirk Muller said Wards stellar play was inspiring for his teammates. "The guys knew that he was giving a great effort and he was keeping us in there," Muller said. "They were like, Hey, weve got to surround him with some better play here and, fortunately, we got timely goals. We played better the rest of the game and it was a nice team effort for everybody." Ward has battled through two injuries this season and was bumped to backup for Anton Khudobin, who was in net for Carolinas 3-2 loss to Chicago Friday night. Carolina returns home for a game Tuesday against the New York Islanders. Winnipeg, which heads out on a five-game road trip beginning Monday in Dallas, remains at 73 points. Heading into the game, the Jets were six points back of the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference. The Jets were coming off a 5-4 overtime win against Colorado on March 19. The loss to Carolina was Winnipegs 40th one-goal game this season and they are 18-13-9 in those outings. Jordan Staal made it 2-1 when he went through Jets defenders and scored over Montoyas blocker at 10:10 of the second while Slater was in the penalty box for tripping. Maurice said Winnipegs first period was "about as good as were going to play," but Staals power-play marker hurt. "No doubt we got tight at 2-1," he said. "You could feel it." The Jets, who were outshot 21-8 in the second, were working without defenceman Zach Bogosian, who left the game in the period with an upper-body injury that Maurice said isnt too serious. It appeared Stuart tied it up six minutes after Littles goal, but the goal was waved off for goaltender interference as Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien fell on top of Ward in the crease and was lying on his right arm. Winnipeg pulled Montoya with about 65 seconds left in the game and swarmed Ward, but the veteran held tough. The Jets outshot the Hurricanes 15-5 in the third. Notes: Jordan Staals power-play goal was the first the Jets have allowed at home in five consecutive games. Winnipegs penalty kill was ranked fifth-best (84.8 per cent) in the NHL heading into the game … Both the Jets and Hurricanes are 2-3-0 in their last five games … The game was the second one of Carolinas 18th set of back-to-back games this season. It plays two more. Only Jersey has more back-to-back sets this season with 22. The Hurricanes so far are 9-8-1 in the first game of their sets and 5-10-3 in the second game. Leighton Vander Esch Jersey . He is nigh unstoppable against the leagues worst. The 31-year-old dangerman set up two goals and scored two himself as Toronto FC rallied from a 2-0 deficit to defeat the slumping Houston Dynamo 4-2 on Saturday night. Tavon Austin Cowboys Jersey .J. Ellis hit an RBI single in the ninth inning, Hanley Ramirez hit a tape-measure, three-run homer in the first against Cliff Lee and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 on Saturday night. Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). The announcement drew boos from the United Center crowd. "Train this hard for this long, its such a long camp and I see my title shot disappear," said Thomson, who fought most of the fight with a broken right hand. Dalton Schultz Cowboys Jersey . - In about six minutes, the Memphis Grizzlies had allowed their 23-point lead to be cut to seven. Connor Williams Cowboys Jersey . -- Its been 21 years since Joe Gibbs Racing celebrated its only Daytona 500 victory.OTTAWA - Mike Hoffman and Kyle Turris seem to have found their touch again — and thats good news for the Ottawa Senators.Hoffman, who had one goal in his last 15 games before Friday, scored twice to lead the Senators in a 6-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks. Turris, who had just two goals in his previous 10 outings — both of them on Wednesday — added a goal and an assist on Friday as Ottawa recorded back-to-back wins for the first time since early November.Its something that comes and goes over an 82-game season and you just try to take advantage of when its coming, Turris said of his recent goal-scoring success.I feel like weve been playing better and playing with more pace and better through the neutral zone and I think we showed that.Erik Karlsson had two assists to help out the cause while Milan Michalek, Mark Stone and Mika Zibanejad also scored for the Senators (14-12-6).Craig Anderson made 32 saves to record his second straight win.The Ducks (22-8-5) got two goals from Ryan Getzlaf two minutes and 33 seconds apart over the second and third periods.

I could do that and use cliches and excuses, but the last time we were in a back-to-back (situation) it was our best gaame of the year in Winnipeg.dddddddddddd It was just not a great effort all the way around.The Senators went into the second period with a 2-0 lead and it looked as though they were headed to the third with that same advantage before three goals were scored less than three minutes apart late in the second.Turris gave Ottawa a 3-0 lead with a short-handed goal, crossing the Ducks blue-line and cutting through three defenders to put a shot over Bryzgalovs shoulder at 16:18 for his third goal in two games.Hoffman intercepted a clearing pass inside the Ducks line just 42 second after the Turris goal and put a quick shot past Bryzgalov for a 4-0 lead and his first goal in eight games.Getzlaf crashed the net and chipped a bouncing puck over Anderson for his first goal of the game at 19:16.We didnt show up in the first period and we didnt give ourselves much of a chance, Getzlaf said. We were missing passes, we were not crisp, we werent fore-checking and the list goes on. They outplayed us throughout most of the game and Im not taking anything away from them. They played well and they executed in their system.Im not going to make excuses for our group. A lot of teams have a lot of road trips so we have to play though them and play all the way through. We didnt show up to play and Im embarrassed.The Senators got a power play just 32 seconds into the game as Lovejoy was called for holding. Michalek made him pay with a goal off a cross-ice slap pass from Karlsson with 29 seconds left in the man advantage.Stone gave the Senators a 2-0 lead when he converted the rebound of a Mark Borowiecki point shot at 8:21 of the first.Notes: Patrick Wiercioch was the lone scratch for the Senators while Devante Smith-Pelly and Hampus Lindholm were scratched for the Ducks. … The win was the first for the Senators over the Ducks on home ice since Game 3 of the 2007 Stanley Cup Final and their first regular season win at home against Anaheim since January 2003. … As a team the Senators went 107 minutes and 55 seconds without allowing a goal before Getzlafs second period goal.
