He tied that mark in his 53rd game this season.”It feels good, but I’m not satisfied with it and I want to be better Chicago Blackhawks T-Shirts Womens ,” Zucker said. ”It’s nice to be clicking as a line, but it’s even better to get a win against a team like this.

Koivu pushed the lead to 3-1 just 74 seconds later on a backhand from the slot.St. Louis goalie Carter Hutton was pulled at the end of the first period after giving up three goals on eight shots.

I know it’s not enough. It’s on us to find out what’s going on.”Blues defenseman Alex Pietrangelo agreed.”I wish I had an answer. Just disconnect all over the ice,” he said.NOTES: The Blues play eight of their next 11 games against Central Division teams. … Blues coach Mike Yeo served as coach of the Wild from 2011-16 and compiled a 173-132-44 mark. … Minnesota RW Chris Stewart, who played for St. Louis during two stints from 2010-14, was a healthy scratch for the fourth time in seven games.UP NEXTWild: Host the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night in the first of five straight home games.Blues: Host the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.— COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Blue Jackets had four days to stew after being pounded by Tampa Bay on the road last weekend. In the first period against Philadelphia on Thursday night, they didn’t look much better.But the Blue Jackets shook off the malaise and used a three-goal flurry in the second period to speed past the Flyers on the way to a 6-3 victory on Thursday night.Cam Atkinson had back-to-back goals in the second for Columbus, both set up with sweet cross-ice passes from Artemi Panarin.“We talked about it between periods,” Atkinson said. “Our first period just simply wasn’t good enough and competitive enough. I think we kind of answered the bell there in the second and third.”Sergei Bobrovsky Sam Reinhart Jersey , who had absorbed a lot of the criticism after the 8-2 rout by the Lightning on Saturday, had 32 saves against Philadelphia (3-4).Anthony Duclair, Nick Foligno, Josh Anderson and Sonny Milano also scored for the Blue Jackets (3-3).

Atkinson buried his second of the night three minutes later, winning a one-on-one battle to the net with Hagg.“I thought we were a little lackluster in the first period, quite honestly, through a lot of the game, and (Atkinson) gave us a little spark in the second period to grab the lead,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said.“At that point, we had a momentum shift,” Courturier said, “and we couldn’t get it back.” Foligno made it 4-2 http://www.officialflames.com/authentic-adidas-jaromir-jagr-jersey , snapping a shot past Pickard’s stick side 8:34 into the second.Lindblom got a wrap-around goal for the Flyers early in the third period to pull it to 4-3, but Anderson got another one for Columbus with five minutes left in the game when he grabbed the puck away from a falling Christian Folin in front of the Philadelphia net and capitalized. Milano got the sixth with 2:12 left off a steal in the corner by Oliver Bjorkstrand.“We hit two posts early, created a lot of chances,” Courtier lamented. “Even at the start of the second we created some chances and as soon as they scored those two goals, we got too hungry to get some offense going when we should have just stuck to the plan and refocused.”NOTES: Corban Knight made his season debut after being out with an upper-body injury. He replaced Mikhail Vorobyev, who was scratched. … Tortorella said injured defenseman Seth Jones (knee) is skating again.
