Devils' Jimmy Hayes must show quickly he belongs in lineup

Mass., who played for his hometown Bruins the past two seasons,The veteran right wing from Dorchester, dressed for his second game in a row as the Devils lost 3-2 on Tuesday night at TD Garden after being a healthy scratch the previous 13 games.

Taylor Hall’s hand injury opened a spot for Hayes, who has three goals and six assists in 25 games after earning a contract off a training camp invite.

it’s a lot better to do it than just by watching,Authentic Auston Matthews jersey,“Being back in the lineup and to feel like you’re contributing and finding ways to help the team win,” Hayes said. “I’ve been through it before. You learn to be a good teammate and continue to push the guys. You just want to make sure your team keeps winning.”

But Devils coach John Hynes said before Monday night’s 3-0 loss to the visiting Red Wings that Hall’s absence was expected to be a short-term and the hope was he would be available for Thursday’s game against the visiting Predators, the Devils’ last game before the All-Star break.

How we rank: We use a panel of voters,Authentic Daniel Sedin jersey, and these rankings reflect which teams voters think would win head-to-head matchups. Higher-ranked teams are favored over lower-ranked teams. A run of wins doesn't guarantee a jump, and a couple of losses don't guarantee a fall.

In football, and heading into their road game versus the Minnesota Wild on Saturday,Authentic Henrik Sedin jersey, much is made of a team’s record coming out of the bye week. It’s less discussed in hockey, the Tampa Bay Lightning would like to forget all about it.

Tampa still holds a solid lead atop the Eastern Conference, but had lopsided losses both before and after their five-day break,adidas Alex Ovechkin jersey, leaving the Bolts looking for answers as they head into an eight-game road trip.

“We’ve lost 9-2 in our last two home games. That’s a concern, for a place that’s usually a pretty tough place to play for teams. We haven’t made it too tough the last two games,” said Lightning coach John Cooper after his team dropped a 4-1 game to the Vegas Golden Knights on Thursday.

“I think our team works pretty hard. They’re just not working smart. They know the right way to play,Authentic T. J. Oshie jersey, and they know they’re not playing the right way. We’re just taking a lot of easy routes out right now that we never took before.”

The Wild had their bye during the week,adidas Patrik Laine jersey, and have not played since a home overtime loss to the Vancouver Canucks last Sunday. The time off was not enough to heal right winger Nino Niederreiter, and is now expected out until after the All-Star break. In his absence, who is still recovering from a lower body injury, the Wild recalled former University of Minnesota star Kyle Rau, who signed with the Wild as a free agent over the summer after playing 33 games for the Florida Panthers over the previous two seasons


The good news is No. 1 goalie Cory Schneider, unable to dress in two of the past three games because of a stomach illness, reported he is feeling 100 percent and the expectation is that, with former Union College standout Kinkaid unavailable, Schneider will likely make all three starts this week before the Devils reach the All-Star break.

“It sounds like Daniel and Henrik Sedin want to be back for one more season at this point. This has been up in the air somewhat entering the season. They reiterated at the start of the year that they only wanted to remain Vancouver Canucks, they’re both on pace for over 50 points. While there hasn’t been discussions yet with the Canucks about an extension, but they’ve gotten to play more with the injuries in Vancouver the last month or so; their production has been good, the belief is they each want to be back for an 18th NHL season.”

The Sedins have spent all 17 NHL seasons together in Vancouver as the team’s longtime duo. While the Canucks are far behind in the playoff race with 42 points in 46 games, the team has had some incredible bright spots in the form of Bo Horvat and Brock Boeser. The Canucks are likely far from competing,adidas Auston Matthews jersey, but it’s not unreasonable to see why both players want to give it one more go.

This season, the pair have put up similar numbers. Henrik, has 32 points in 46 games while Daniel has 30 points in 45 games,adidas Daniel Sedin jersey, both at the age of 37. They are on pace for over 50 points, the team’s captain, meaning they’re set to hit or exceed their totals from last year. Both Henrik and Daniel are no longer the players they were when they crested 100 points earlier in their careers,adidas Henrik Sedin jersey, but they are still effective forwards for the Canucks.

As for their price, both players are set to come off four-year, $28 million deals that have cost the Canucks a $7 million AAV. Henrik and Daniel will likely get far less,Authentic Alex Ovechkin jersey,Authentic Patrik Laine jersey, but they are the two biggest pieces the Canucks have to re-sign in the offseason, and with $14 million in cap space already off the books they could very well negotiate something fair for the both of them.

Hammered from behind on a cross-check that set up a 5-on-3 power play, Vancouver Canucks rookie Brock Boeser waited patiently on the bench to get back in the action.

It took him precisely 12 seconds to exact his revenge.

Boeser scored twice in the second period — including on that two-man advantage — and the Canucks cruised to a 6-2 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night.

Loui Eriksson led Vancouver's early flurry with two goals and an assist in the first six minutes. Thomas Vanek,adidas T. J. Oshie jersey, and Sven Baertschi provided the rest of the offense for Vancouver, with a goal and two assists, which got 30 saves from Jacob Markstrom.
