NEW YORK (AP) Patrik Laine went more than a year between hat tricks Matt Calvert Jersey Womens
, and still the 19-year-old Finnish star is on a remarkable pace.Laine got his fourth hat trick and set a career high with his 38th goal, lifting the Winnipeg Jets over the New York Rangers 3-0 on Tuesday night.The 19-year-old star had been the youngest ever with three hat tricks – getting there at 18 years, 302 days – but it had been over a year since his last three-goal game. He joins Jimmy Carson and Dale Hawerchuk as the only players with four hat tricks before turning 20.Laine has at least a point in nine straight games (13 goals, six assists) and has scored multiple goals in four of his past five contests. He’s two goals behind Washington’s Alex Ovechkin for the NHL lead this season.Laine has taken off since being put on a line with Nikolaj Ehlers and Paul Stastny.”Our line is playing pretty good hockey,” Laine said.Laine is the first visiting teenager with a hat trick at Madison Square Garden since Toronto’s Ted Kennedy on Dec. 27, 1944, according to Sportsnet Stats.Steve Mason made 31 saves as the Jets extended their winning streak to three. Winnipeg has earned points in seven straight road games (6-0-1) and improved to 14-6-5 against the Eastern Conference.”He didn’t get overworked,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. ”He had a couple of tough ones early, a couple of squeezers right around the net that he made a good save on, and then a lot of what came to him, he saw clean, so it was a good start for sure.”Henrik Lundqvist made his 798th career appearance and stopped 31 shots as the Rangers lost for the first time in four games. Lundqvist made 50 saves in each of his previous two games.”At the end of the night Cale Makar Jersey Womens
, we tried hard and tried battling back in the third,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. ”That’s a real good team we played tonight and they were able to get their best shooter to get a few good looks.”Laine opened the scoring by putting a wrist shot past Lundqvist at 19:05 of the first period. He added on midway through the second period when he snapped off another wrist shot, then scored into an empty net with 34 seconds left.Laine, the third overall pick of the 2016 draft, scored 36 goals in his rookie season. He leads the NHL in goals since entering the league with 74. Ovechkin and Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov each have 73.Mason made his first appearance since Jan. 9th, when he was sidelined with a concussion. The veteran will play important minutes down the stretch as Winnipeg looks to lighten Connor Hellebuyck’s workload before the playoffs. The franchise hopes to win a playoff series for the first time in its history.Winnipeg teammates Mark Schiefele and Blake Wheeler collided in the first period. Schiefele initially returned to action but was later ruled out for the game with an upper-body injury. His last shift ended with 3:58 remaining in the second period.Rangers forward Vladislav Namestnikov skated in his first game at MSG since being acquired at the trade deadline from the Tampa Bay Lightning.NOTES: Twelve members of the gold medal-winning U.S. women’s Olympic hockey team were honored during the first period. … Rangers F Pavel Buchnevich skated in his 100th game. … Rangers F Mika Zibanejad missed the game with the flu. … Rangers D Kevin Shattenkirk skated with the team in practice for the first time since having a knee operation in January. … Winnipeg sent goalie Michael Hutchinson to the AHL to make room for Mason. … Defenseman Toby Enstrom missed his fourth consecutive game.UP NEXTJets: Play at New Jersey on Thursday night.Rangers: Play at Tampa Bay on Thursday night.— LAS VEGAS (AP) — The last 48 hours have been a whirlwind for Max Pacioretty.After missing seven games because of a lower-body injury, the Vegas Golden Knights forward scored the winner Friday night in his return at Anaheim, then rushed back to Las Vegas in time to see son Michael born at 2 a.m. Saturday.Sunday it was back to business, with the former Montreal star breaking a tie with 4:14 left in the second period to help Vegas beat the New Jersey Devils 3-2.“It (was) a lucky bounce off my pant; I thought that our line generated a lot tonight, I think we were leaned on defensively as well, and that’s the type of line we want to be,” said Pacioretty Riley Nash Jersey Womens
, who redirected Shea Theodore’s shot from the point past goalie Keith Kincaid for his second straight game-winner. “It’s just a weekend to remember. I’m happy that he is here finally and happy that everyone is home, happy and healthy.”Malcolm Subban made 36 saves, and Vegas overcame a 2-0 deficit to improve to 17-3-3 since Nov. 21.“We were definitely the better team most of the game so I think we deserved this one,” Subban said. “It was a tough start there, with a couple of goals, but the boys were right back and persevered and I didn’t get too much the rest of the game.”Not until the third period, when he made 20 of his saves, including six during back-to-back New Jersey power play opportunities over the final 3:22 of the game.“He was outstanding tonight, played a real good solid game for us, it was good,” Gallant said. “He hadn’t played in this building in quite a while, so it was good to see him play today. … It was two (penalty kills) back-to-back Martin Hanzal Jersey Womens
, and the goalie pulled at the end of it too, so I think they did an outstanding job. Subby made some real key saves. There was traffic in front of the net, and there was a couple of rebounds there so he stood tall and stood strong in there. It was an excellent job to win a hockey game.”Subban, who said he found out a couple of days prior he’d be in net for his first home start since March 30, has won his last two starts and allowed just four goals in his last three after giving up 18 in his first four starts.“I was excited to get back in front of the fans … anytime you can get in front of your home fans here it’s unbelievable,” Subban said. “It’s the best building in the league. It’s a lot of fun for sure.”Ryan Reaves added his career-high eighth goal, and Brayden McNabb scored his first goal of the season.The defending Western Conference champions moved into a first-place tie in the West and Pacific Division with Calgary, each with 56 points. The Flames have two games in hand.“We just want to keep getting points cause everybody else is winning in our conference, so you got to keep winning and playing hard,” Gallant said. “I like what we’re doing. I didn’t like a whole lot about some of the parts of the game tonight, but we played well enough to win. Tonight, we only gave up two goals Anton Khudobin Jersey Womens
, and Subby had a chance to play and played real well so that’s a big thing for our team.Nico Hischier and Ben Lovejoy scored for New Jersey, and Kincaid made 25 saves.With the loss, New Jersey is now 27-11-16 in one-goal games. The Devils have 39 points and are 11 points back in the wild-card race, behind the New York Islanders and Buffalo, who have 50 points each.“Some of our puck management early in the (second) period wasn’t very good. That allowed them to get up and get going,” Devils coach John Hynes said. “Consistency, that’s the biggest thing this year. We understand what our game it is … we know what our identity is and what it needs to be and now it needs to be more consistent to give us a better chance to win more games.”NOTES: New Jersey star Taylor Hill missed his sixth game and remains day-to-day with a lower-body injury. … The Devils are 5-4-2 in day contests this season. … The Devils, who are an astounding 87-0-14 when leading after two periods since the 2015-15 season, are 2-15-2 when trailing after two periods this season. … Both teams were 0 for 2 on the power play, and the Golden Knights are mired in an 0-for-16 slump over their last six games. … New Jersey is 25 for 26 on the penalty kill in its last seven games.UP NEXT:Devils: At Buffalo on Tuesday nightGolden Knights: Host New York Rangers on Tuesday night.
