in a game-ending celebration as if it were playoff series clincher. It likely felt that way for the New York goalie as the Rangers snapped a brutal four-game losing streak.Lundqvist made 28 saves in relief of Ondrej Pavelec http://www.sanjosesharksteamshop.com/authentic-logan-couture-jersey , who injured his knee during the first period of an eventual 4-3 victory over the Calgary Flames on Friday night.Lundqvist replaced Pavelec to start the second and made 19 saves that period then stopped all nine shots in the third to secure the win, his team’s first since Jan. 25 at San Jose before the All-Star break. It was most saves Lundqvist ever made in a relief appearance.”We’ve been losing a lot of one-goal games, which means we are one play away, we are one save away, one goal away from getting points,” said Lundqvist, who won in relief for the third time in his 13-year career with the Rangers. ”Tonight we got that goal, we got that save in the end to keep the lead.”Mika Zibanejad scored the go-ahead goal on a power play at 12:41 of the third period off a cross-ice pass from J.T. Miller. It was Zibanejad’s 16th goal of the season.The Rangers ended Calgary’s three-game winning streak. New York had lost 10 of its last 13 games to fall out of an Eastern Conference playoff spot.Rangers forward Rick Nash, likely to be traded by the Feb. 26 deadline because of his expiring contract Martin Jones Jersey , tied it at 3 at 6:41 of the third with his 17th goal of the season. Michael Grabner and Kevin Hayes also scored.Matthew Tkachuk put Calgary ahead 3-2 with his 18th goal of the season at 18:27 of the second on a power play. Brett Kulak had his first NHL goal, and Curtis Lazar also scored for the Flames.The Flames (28-19-8) had won the first two games of their six-game trip, beating New Jersey 3-2 on Thursday night. Their coach Glen Gulutzan was not happy with his team’s performance especially seeing his team outshot 20-8 in the first period.”Just the way we played and the way we approached the game. I thought we were terrible in the first and took way too many penalties,” he said. ”We got what we deserved. We weren’t ready to play.”Grabner put the Rangers ahead 2-1 at 11:52 of the second when the puck deflected off Calgary defenseman Giordano and went past goalie Mike Smith. Grabner has a team-high 22 goals.Lazar quickly tied the contest for the Flames with his first of the season at 12:37, nudging the puck past Lundqvist when the goaltender went for a poke check attempt.Hayes opened the scoring for the Rangers, knocking in a rebound on the power-play at 7:53 of the first period.The Rangers (26-24-5) seemed to come out with relieved purpose a day after the organization released a letter to fans asking them to bear with a potential rebuild ahead with the league’s trade deadline looming in just over two weeks.Vigneault said he still believes his squad can make the playoffs – though the roster he will be working with remains to be determined.”If I were a player, I would be looking at the standings, seeing that we’re three points out of the playoffs. You can be sure I’d be coming ready, coming out and working hard Womens Melker Karlsson Jersey ,” he said. ”I think that’s what we’ve been doing.”Nash figures to be the most prominent player to depart since his contract is expiring. The 33-year-old forward needs two points to reach 800 in his NHL career. He scored a career-high 42 goals for the Rangers three seasons ago.Even though the Rangers outshot the Flames so widely in the opening period, Calgary still managed the tie the contest at 1 when Kulak scored his first NHL goal at 18:15.Vigneaul said Pavelec would be evaluated on Saturday and any roster decisions would be determined before the team leaves for Winnipeg and the start of a four-game trip.With Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh out against the Flames with an upper body injury, two defensemen made their debuts for the Rangers – Neal Pionk and John Gilmour. Both were recalled from AHL Hartford.NOTES: The Rangers have won six straight at home against Calgary . The teams meet again on March 2 in Calgary. … The Rangers also continued to be without injured defensemen Marc Staal and Kevin Shattenkirk as well as forwards Chris Kreider, Pavel Buchnevich and Jimmy Vesey . The Flames are 15-6-5 on the road.UP NEXT:Flames: At New York Islanders on Sunday night.Rangers: At Winnipeg on Sunday. RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Alex Ovechkin scored goals in bunches once again — until the shootout. Then it was up to Jakub Vrana to clinch an important victory for the Washington Capitals.The three-time MVP had his second consecutive hat trick, Vrana scored in the sixth round of the tiebreaker and the Capitals beat the Carolina Hurricanes 6-5 on Friday night.Ovechkin’s three goals gave him an NHL-best 28 this season and nine in his last five games. His 13-game point streak matched his career high set in 2006-07.“I don’t know what to say — I just try to do my job,” Ovechkin said. “Everybody tries to score goals, everybody wants to score goals. In this league, it’s hard to do that. I feel like I play with great players. They set me up Adidas John Moore Jersey , and I just have to do my job.”Tom Wilson and Travis Boyd also scored for the defending Stanley Cup champions, who have won 11 of 13. The Metropolitan Division leaders got three goals in a 5:42 span of the second to tie it at 4, a burst capped when Boyd redirected in John Carlson’s shot with 1:41 left in the period. It was the Capitals’ largest deficit overcome in a victory this season.“You still have to figure out how you’re going to win with the group that we presently have in the locker room, and obviously the majority of our roster was part of what we were able to accomplish last year, so you have a little bit of I’d say equity on that one,” coach Todd Reirden said. “At the end of the day, you have to find ways to do it with a new group in there, and we’re doing it with a four-line attack.”Justin Williams scored the tying goal with 6:12 remaining, and Sebastian Aho had two goals and two assists for Carolina.Teuvo Teravainen had a goal and two assists and Jordan Martinook also scored for the Hurricanes Tim Heed Jersey , who had three power-play goals but have lost three straight and six of seven. They have allowed 15 goals — not including the tiebreaker in this one — during their last three losses.Dougie Hamilton and Nicklas Backstrom both scored in the fourth round of the shootout. After Braden Holtby stopped Brock McGinn in the sixth round, Vrana ended it with a wrist shot to Scott Darling’s glove side.Holtby finished with 22 saves for the Capitals. Darling made 24 stops in his first start with Carolina since Nov. 24.Ovechkin put Washington up 5-4 with 10:11 remaining, blasting a one-timer from the left circle past Darling on the power play, before his former teammate with the Capitals — Williams — tied it nearly four minutes later with a backhand.Ovechkin also scored on Washington’s first shot of the game, another one-timer from the circle at 3:56 of the first. His second goal came with some controversy, with the Hurricanes unsuccessfully clamoring for an interference penalty on Jonas Siegenthaler for his hit on Hamilton that cleared the way for the Capitals’ captain.“The game turned on that play,” said Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour, who said an official told him he didn’t see interference. “Then the momentum got going, and they cranked it up.”Aho Womens Tomas Hertl Jersey , who scored on a short-handed breakaway in the first, had his third career four-point game and extended his point streak to four games. He has 15 points (seven goals, eight assists) in nine career games against Washington, and he and Teravainen scored power-play goals 2:02 apart in the second period that seemingly put Carolina in control.Aho scored his second goal on a one-time rocket that got by Holtby, making it 3-1 at 4:39, and Wilson — in his first game back from a concussion that cost him three games — took an interference penalty for blind-siding Andrei Svechnikov with his shoulder 24 seconds later. Teravainen then made it a three-goal game with his wrist shot from the circle at 6:41.“We had plenty of time,” Ovechkin said. “We just had to play our game.”NOTES: Washington C Nic Dowd had a career-high three assists, and Carlson had two. … The Capitals have scored at least three goals in 13 straight games. … Carolina has allowed at least four goals in four of its last five games. … Wilson and Ovechkin both rang the post. … Siegenthaler set up Ovechkin’s first goal for his first NHL point.UP NEXTCapitals: Visit Buffalo on Saturday night.Hurricanes: Host Arizona on Sunday.
