CALGARY Nate Thompson Jersey , Alberta (AP) — some misfortune before scoring the overtime winner for the Buffalo Sabres in a 4-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.Seconds after putting a backhand off the post, Buffalo’s captain rifled a low shot past Dave Rittich, on the Calgary goaltender’s glove side 70 seconds into OT.Eichel also rang the puck off the iron in the first minute of the game. He was all alone in front of Rittich with five minutes remaining in the first period, but his shot was over the net.“Obviously you put a lot of pressure on yourself,” Eichel said. “When things aren’t going well, you want to be one of the guys who makes a difference.“I think that’s when you start gripping your stick and start thinking about it a little too much. Hopefully Authentic Oscar Fantenberg Jersey , that goal can get me going again. It’s just what I needed.”Jake McCabe, Evan Rodrigues and Rasmus Dahlin also scored for Buffalo, which halted a four-game losing skid.Buffalo goaltender Linus Ullmark earned the start and the win with 30 saves after relieving Carter Hutton in Monday’s 7-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers.The Sabres scored three goals on a total of three shots in the third and overtime periods.“When we needed goals, we found ways to get them,” Eichel said. “I think as a group, we probably weren’t the most confident after losing 7-2 in Edmonton.“This is a game we should use moving forward as kind of a building block of what we can do every night to try and give ourselves the best chance to win.”Johnny Gaudreau had a goal and an assist for Calgary Tanner Pearson Jersey , which snapped a five-game win streak.Matthew Tkachuk and Noah Hanifin also scored for Calgary, with Elias Lindholm contributing a pair of assists.After winning four straight starts, Rittich had 19 saves in the loss.“I liked our game. We only gave up two shots in the third,” Flames head coach Bill Peters said. “Special teams were good, two-for-three on the power play and three-for-three on the penalty kill.“I think we held onto the puck a little too much tonight and tried to force some plays where we had other options available and could have taken what was given.“We didn’t capitalize on the three-on-one in overtime and they came back the other way and ended it.”The Flames took their point and continue to battle with the San Jose Sharks for first in the Pacific Division.NOTES: Gaudreau became the third-fastest player in Flames history to reach the 70-point mark, doing it in his 48th game of the season.

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — All-Star goaltender Braden Holtby is expected to start for the Washington Capitals on Friday night against the New York Islanders after missing two games with an eye injury.Holtby said his left eye is back to normal after it initially didn’t progress as quickly as hoped.“It’s not a thing that’s going to get worse,” Holtby said after the Capitals’ morning skate. “It’s just a matter of when it calms down. So now it’s good.”The eye injury lingered for Holtby after he took a high stick to the face through his mask from Columbus forward Cam Atkinson on Saturday . Holtby left that game early and wasn’t able to play Monday against St. Louis or Tuesday against Nashville.“It was one of those things where you don’t really know what it’s going to be like in a game,” Holtby said. “There was a bit of doubt what was going to be like. It wasn’t close enough to 100 percent where it felt comfortable it was for the betterment of the team.”Backup Pheonix Copley allowed 11 goals on 66 shots in regulation losses to the Blues and Predators. The Capitals have lost three in a row.Coach Todd Reirden said he was confident about Holtby’s status and the team wouldn’t call up another goalie for the game against the Islanders. Copley is expected to back up Holtby, the 2016 Vezina Trophy winner who won all 16 games for Washington in the playoffs last year on the way to the Stanley Cup.“It’s been a little bit of touch and go,” Reirden said. “Just definitely happy. Any time you can get your No. 1 goalie in there Womens Tyler Toffoli Jersey , that’s great for us.”
