WASHINGTON (AP) Make it 600 goals and counting

PostPostao/la laiyongcai92 » Čet ožu 14, 2019 2:54 am

for Alex Ovechkin Adam Cracknell Jersey Womens , and give the Washington Capitals two more points for the tough playoff race in the Eastern Conference.Ovechkin scored twice in another historic performance and Evgeny Kuznetsov had the overtime winner as the Capitals returned to first place by beating the Winnipeg Jets 3-2 on Monday night.The 32-year-old Ovechkin scored during a 5-on-3 power play in the first period and then put back a rebound past Connor Hellebuyck for No. 600 in the second. The Russian winger became the 20th player and fourth-fastest in NHL history to the milestone and is on pace to lead the league in goals for the seventh time with 42 on the season.”Of course it’s special,” he said. ”You can see when I score the goal, everybody tried to find me, everybody tried to look at me. I knew if I’m gonna have another one, I’m gonna score.”Ovechkin continued a season-long trend of scoring a high volume of goals for the Capitals, who lost significant talent from back-to-back Presidents’ Trophy-winning teams. He has roughly a fifth of Washington’s goals this season and needed to be on his game against Patrik Laine and Winnipeg.Laine entered with an 11-game point streak and scored his 41st goal of the season to make it 16 in his past 12. Nikolaj Ehlers also scored a 4-on-4 goal for Winnipeg, which got 40 saves from Connor Hellebuyck.But everyone was left in awe of the great Ovechkin, who could become the first player age 32 or older to lead the NHL in goals since Phil Esposito in 1974-75.”I’m sure one day we’ll look at it and get perspective on it,” Capitals owner Ted Leonsis said. ”But it’s all a part of this process and he’s not fazed by it. He said the other day 40’s good but 50’s nicer and he’s going to get 50 goals. You can just tell he’s very, very determined and he is a historic player.”Ovechkin joined Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux and Brett Hull as the only players to score 600 in fewer than 1,000 games. He said his wife, Nastya Wayne Simmonds Jersey , who just returned from a weeklong trip to Moscow, had a feeling he would accomplish the feat against the Jets.”Right now parents in Moscow and she makes it,” Ovechkin said. ”It’s kind of nice when someone from your family is in the stands.”Ovechkin got two lengthy standing ovations from the crowd that has been dazzled by his accomplishments since he made his debut in 2005. It was of little surprise he delivered in what was a showdown with another fellow 40-goal scorer in Laine, who idolized Ovechkin growing up.”I was pretty close watching it,” Laine said of Ovechkin’s goal 3:53 into the second period. ”I was in a good spot – just behind him. I was there when he made history, so I can maybe watch that someday and show that I was there getting the minus on the ice.”Kuznetsov got his 21st of the season on a breakaway 4:11 into overtime. He joked that Ovechkin scoring 600 was ”a free meal” for him and was thrilled to put a positive capper on the night for Washington.”I feel like my legs were 15 years old,” Kuznetsov said. ”I don’t have a good overtime the last 10 games probably. I just wanted to score that because I know that one point will make a huge difference at the end of the year.”NOTES: Capitals G Philipp Grubauer stopped 26 shots in his third consecutive start over No. 1 goaltender Braden Holtby, who is 1-5-2 with a 4.83 goals-against average and .854 save percentage in his past eight games. … Ds Christian Djoos and Madison Bowey and Fs Alex Chiasson and Travis Boyd were healthy scratches for Washington. … Jets G Steve Mason is out two to three weeks after a knee scope. C Mark Scheifele is expected to miss his fourth consecutive game Tuesday with an upper-body injury. D Dmitry Kulikov returned to Winnipeg with an upper-body injury, with coach Paul Maurice saying there would be a further update later this week.UP NEXTJets: Visit the Central Division-leading Nashville Predators on Tuesday night.Capitals: Visit the New York Islanders on Thursday in the first half of a home-and-home back-to-back.— DETROIT (AP) The Detroit Red Wings are a team in transition, and that was evident Tuesday night.Veteran defenseman Niklas Kronwall scored a goal for his 400th point, while rookie defenseman Joe Hicketts, playing his second NHL game, grabbed a pair of assists for his first career points as the Red Wings beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-2.”It’s neat for sure Womens Bryan Rust Jersey ,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. ”It’s good. I thought a number of our young players played well.”Luke Glendening scored twice and Darren Helm matched his career high with three points. Helm had a goal and two assists, and Frans Nielsen and Niklas Kronwall also scored for Detroit. Jimmy Howard made 22 saves to help the Red Wings win in regulation for the first time since a 3-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Feb. 24.Sidney Crosby and Kris Letang scored for the Penguins. Matt Murray stopped 21 shots.It took Pittsburgh 38 seconds to gain the lead. Crosby took Jake Guentzel’s cross-ice feed and snapped a shot before Howard could get across.”(Dylan) Larkin, Helm and (Anthony) Mantha was the line that went up against Crosby,” Blashill said. ”They didn’t start great. The turnover early and then they go down and score. But that’s the learning process that you have to do and after that they were really good, so that’s a real positive.”The Red Wings pulled even 17:43 into opening period. Helm found Kronwall pinching down from the point, and Kronwall whipped a quick shot past Murray. It was his 80th goal, tying him for fourth among Wings defensemen with Hall of Famer Marcel Pronovost.”I try to keep them,” Kronwall said of his milestone pucks. ”I’m not sure exactly where I have them. I don’t have that many, let’s be honest. I think they’re around somewhere.”Detroit, mired in a 1-12-1 stretch, grabbed the lead on the power play at 14:28 of the second period. Martin Frk faked a shot, then zipped the puck across the ice to Nielsen, whose high shot eluded the sprawling Murray.Just 41 seconds later Josh Jooris Jersey Womens , Detroit made it 3-1 when Glendening deflected Nick Jensen’s point shot.”We let them have the momentum with those two quick goals in the second period,” Crosby said. ”You can’t let that happen. Once we fell behind there, we were chasing the game.”The Red Wings added another goal 6:21 into the third period when Helm converted Larkin’s feed for his 10th.Letang’s point shot found its way through traffic and behind Howard with 3:16 left in regulation.Glendening finished the scoring into an empty net with 1:28 to play.”I don’t think we were struggling tonight, we just weren’t playing with the kind of urgency it takes to win games,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. ”This is a hard league, and it is hard to win a game no matter who you are playing.”If you aren’t willing to make the commitment it takes to give that kind of effort, you are going to get beat.”NOTES: Red Wings GM Ken Holland would not confirm reports that he and Blashill would return next season, saying only that the question would be answered by the end of the season. … The Penguins are the first visiting team to lose twice at Little Caesars Arena. They also fell 4-1 in Detroit on Dec. 31. . Glendening recorded his second career multi-goal game and first since Jan. 27, 2015 at Florida, along with his fifth career multi-point game.UP NEXTPenguins: At New Jersey on Thursday night.Red Wings: At Buffalo on Thursday night.—
