We came out flat in that game (29th Dec 18 at 6:17am UTC)
COLUMBUS Vancouver Canucks Hoodies Authentic , Ohio — Pierre Luc-Dubois scored in overtime to lift the Columbus Blue Jackets over the Detroit Red Wings 5-4 on Tuesday night and keep their playoff plans on track.Artemi Panarin tied it for Columbus when he put back his own rebound late in the third period. That set the stage for Dubois’ shot from the slot 2:55 into the extra period.The Blue Jackets are trying to get to the playoffs in consecutive years for the first time in franchise history, and for most of the game it looked as if Detroit would put a crimp in their plans. Columbus had to rally from a 4-1 second-period deficit to get the two points and stay in third place in the Metropolitan Division with two games left.Article continues below ...Cam Atkinson scored twice and Sonny Milano also had a goal for the Blue Jackets, who have won 13 of 15. Sergei Bobrovsky had 23 saves.Jimmy Howard had 36 saves and Tyler Bertuzzi had two goals for the Red Wings, who ended a three-game winning streak. Gustav Nyquist had a goal and an assist, Darren Helm also scored and Henrik Zetterberg had three assists for Detroit.Bertuzzi put the Red Wings up four minutes into the game when he redirected Zetterberg’s shot from the left corner. Atkinson tied it on a power play a few minutes later when he waited next to the net and stuffed in a pass from Seth Jones.Detroit went up 2-1 later in the period when Bobrovsky and defenseman Jones got tangled up in front of the goal and a bouncing shot from Helm went into the net off Jones. Bertuzzi got his second of the evening late in the period on a power play, beating Bobrovsky on a rush.Nyquist gave Detroit a three-goal edge on a power play just 31 seconds into the second period. Atkinson pulled it to 4-2 later in the period on a power play when he scored from the right circle as Alexander Wennberg screened out Howard. Detroit wanted goalie interference but didn’t the call.Milano poked in a loose puck from the doorstep to make it 4-3 midway through the third period Vancouver Canucks Hats Authentic , and then Panarin tied it.NOTES: Panarin has the franchise points record with 80. … Columbus D Zach Werenski left the ice in the second period after taking a puck to the back of the head blocking a shot from Andreas Athanasiou. … Columbus F Alex Broadhurst made his NHL debut. He went to the penalty box in the first period for high-sticking, which led to a Detroit’s third goal. … Detroit C Dylan Larkin has six points in the past three games.UP NEXT:Detroit: Hosts Montreal on Thursday night.Columbus: Hosts Pittsburgh on Thursday night. BOSTON (AP) Lightning coach Jon Cooper came to Boston with a plan to steal back the home-ice advantage that the Bruins took away with their Game 1 win in Tampa.Now he has bigger goals in mind.”We can’t exhale,” Cooper said on Thursday, a day after the Lightning beat Boston 4-1 to open a 2-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. ”Just because we picked one up on them, we want to make it where we have three chances to knock them out. When you have that chance, you can’t let it slide.”Since winning the opener Custom Vancouver Canucks Jerseys , the Bruins have lost two in a row. On Wednesday night, Ondrej Palat scored twice in the first 3:19 of the game to give the Lightning a lead it never relinquished.”They outworked us last night, there’s no doubt about it,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said.Game 4 is Friday night (7 p.m. EDT, NBCSN).MIRROR IMAGEVegas and San Jose each have a home shutout and a road overtime win through four games of their second-round series. Now it has become a best-of-three for a spot in the Western Conference Final starting with Game 5 (10 p.m. EDT, NBCSN). The Sharks have turned things around completely from Game 1 www.officialcapitals.com , when they were constantly a step behind the speedier Golden Knights in a 7-0 loss.San Jose has done a much better job limiting Vegas’ chances since then.”That 7-0 game was not really us out there,” forward Eric Fehr said. ”We changed a lot of things. We came out flat in that game. I think we’ve done a good job of reeling it in and playing the way we can play. That was a game we just threw in the garbage and turned the page.”Now the Golden Knights will try to do the same after getting thoroughly outplayed in a 4-0 loss in Game 4.”It’s a good series, there’s no easy night,” goalie Marc-Andre Fleury said. ”Nobody thought it was going to be an easy series either. We’re in good shape, 2-2, going home.”SHUFFLINGCassidy fiddled with his lines in practice on Thursday as he tried to find more offense for a team that seemed to have plenty of it in the first-round series against the Maple Leafs. With Brad Marchand and Jake DeBrusk sitting out of practice – Cassidy said he expects them to play on Friday night – Danton Heinen skated with Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak on the first line and Ryan Donato got time with David Krejci on the second.After scoring 28 goals in seven games against Toronto and six in the Round 2 opener Washington Capitals T-Shirts Authentic , Boston was held to a single goal each in back-to-back games.”We’ll probably tinker,” Cassidy said. ”I’m not going to tell you who’s going in or who’s going out, because we’ve got to get the healthy guys sorted out first.”ROOKIES IN THE BOOKSLightning forward Anthony Cirelli was the 23rd different rookie to score at least one goal in 56 NHL playoff games this year. That’s already more than in all of last year’s postseason. The NHL record is 38 in 1981, but over the past 30 years the most was 28, in 1990 and again in ’92.Boston’s Jake DeBrusk has six this year, leading all rookies. Minnesota North Stars forward Dino Ciccarelli scored 14 goals in ’81 Washington Capitals Hoodies Authentic , the rookie record for a postseason. Penguins forward Jake Guentzel scored 13 last year and matched Ciccarelli’s point total.—AP Sports Writer Josh Dubow contributed to this story from San Jose, California.
