BUFFALO Corey Perry Jersey
, N.Y. (AP) — Rather than lament another sloppy performance after being booed off the ice at the end of the second period, Jack Eichel and the Buffalo Sabres decided to do something about it.Eichel scored and had a hand in setting up Jeff Skinner’s power-play goal 1:49 into overtime, and the Sabres overcame a two-goal deficit in the third to beat the Los Angeles Kings 4-3 on Tuesday night.“Coming in here after 40 minutes and you’re down two goals, and you just had a couple of days off and you’re at home, there’s got to be some type of emotional response from the room,” said Eichel, noting the Sabres were also smarting from a 6-2 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. “And I think we showed that in the third period.”Johan Larsson, who tied the game, and Zemgus Girgensons also scored for Buffalo. Linus Ullmark stopped 26 shots.The Sabres snapped an 0-3-2 skid that followed their franchise record-tying 10-game winning streak. They improved to 6-7-2 when trailing through two periods by overwhelming a tired Kings team playing on consecutive nights. Los Angeles lost 3-1 at Detroit on Monday and finished this game down to four defensemen.Drew Doughty did not return after sustaining an upper-body injury late in the first period. Dion Phaneuf did not return after two periods due to an upper-body injury.Kings coach Willie Desjardins called both players day to day without revealing the nature of their injuries.“We knew that coming out down a couple of D-men it was going to be a tough period. But the guys played hard Conor Timmins Jersey Womens
,” Desjardins said. “A lot of our guys battled tonight.”Jake Muzzin had a goal and an assist and Adrian Kempe and Matt Luff also scored for the Kings, who dropped to 2-5-1 in their past eight games.“Four D on the second leg of a back-to-back is a tough haul,” Muzzin said. “Frustrating loss, man.”Sabres coach Phil Housley was able to crack a smile when asked if it was his team’s intention to wear down the short-handed Kings in the third period.“Well, we wanted to try to do that in the second period, but we just didn’t manage that part of the game very well,” Housley said. “When we made our mind up that we wanted to play, you could see the result.”Buffalo outshot the Kings 20-4 in the third period and overtime, and converted on two of its final three power-play opportunities.Skinner scored his team-leading 21st goal with eight seconds to go on Oscar Fantenberg’s holding penalty.Eichel’s shot from the left circle was blocked in front. The puck dribbled to Sabres defenseman Rasmus Ristolainen at the left post http://www.ducksshoponline.com/authentic-jakob-silfverberg-jersey
, where he fed a pass through his legs to Skinner, who swept it into the open right side.“I think it shows what kind of team we are and how we’ve got to play,” said Larsson, who tied the game 7:23 into the third period when Lawrence Pilut’s shot from the right point banked in off his skate.Larsson’s goal came a little under four minutes after Eichel cut the Kings’ lead to 3-2 by blasting in a shot from the left circle that beat rookie Calvin Petersen on the short side.Petersen stopped 43 shots in his first meeting against the team he jilted to become a free agent 18 months ago. He was the Sabres’ fifth-round pick in the 2013 draft, but declined to sign with Buffalo to instead pursue free agency and sign with Los Angeles on July 1, 2017, following his junior season at Notre Dame.“They were the first team to give me a taste of an NHL organization. Obviously, very fortunate for that,” Petersen said. “But I just approached it as another game.”NOTES: Sabres G Carter Hutton served as the backup after missing one game with an upper-body injury. … The Sabres sent D Matt Hunwick to Rochester of the AHL on a rehab assignment Womens John Gibson Jersey

DALLAS (AP) — Anders Lee scored one of the most unusual of his 137 career goals on Sunday night — and it wasn’t even the most bizarre goal of the game.Nick Leddy’s shot from the top of the slot hit the left post and caromed to Anton Khudobin’s right skate, where Lee poked the puck between the Dallas goalie’s legs for a tiebreaking power-play goal with 10:10 to play that sent the New York Islanders to a 3-1 victory over the Stars.“We’ve had a couple of odd ones like that,” Lee said. “Good things happen when you get pucks to the net. Huge little boost for us, a little momentum swing. They don’t always ask how they go in.”The Islanders’ first two goals went in off Khudobin, actually.Tyler Pitlick scored the game’s first goal for the Stars in the second period before Casey Cizikas tied it with a fluke goal at 14:10. Cizikas skated behind the net and shot a backhand that went off Khudobin’s mask and back before dropping behind the goal line.“It hit my head, bent over,” Khudobin said. “It hit the bar of the net. It started rolling back (down) and hit my back.”Bad breaks?“Yeah, lucky ones. It happens in hockey,” he said.Leo Komarov added an empty-net goal with a minute remaining.Khudobin finished with 25 saves.Islanders goalie Robin Lehner made 19 saves Authentic Josh Manson Jersey
, six in the third period against a listless Dallas offense on the second night of a back-to-back.“You kind of get used to these types of games,” Lehner said. “There’s long periods of time when you don’t have much to do but (are) required to make a save here and there. I’m getting more comfortable with it.”Pitlick, a healthy scratch Saturday night at Minnesota, wouldn’t accept fatigue or losing a center to injury each night as an excuse.“It’s tough that the guys have to double shift, especially coming off a back-to-back. But we’ve got to find a way to dig in and get those points,” he said.New York has won four of its last five games to move within two points of Pittsburgh for third place in the Metropolitan Division.The Stars had won two of three. Dallas dropped behind Edmonton in the race for the Western Conference’s second wild card.In the first period, the Islanders outshot Dallas 9-7 and had two power plays to the Stars’ one. There were no shots on goal during any of the three man advantages.Pitlick scored 6:20 into the second. He stickhandled in from the left along the goal line, moved the puck to his forehand and shot it inside the right post.“I was looking to pass but they just kind of let me walk in,” Pitlick said.Islanders coach Barry Trotz liked the result http://www.ducksshoponline.com/authentic-ondrej-kase-jersey
, especially with the team heading into a four-day holiday break.“We took a high-octane type of team and shut them down for the most part. There’s some pretty dynamic talent on that team. We did a really good job against their top players,” Trotz said.NOTES: Each team started its No. 2 goaltender. … Islanders D Devon Toews, 24, made his NHL debut because Johnny Boychuk returned to New York with his wife due to deliver their third child. … Dallas C Jason Dickinson was scratched from the lineup after leaving Saturday’s game because of an upper-body injury.
