SUNRISE Womens Bradley Chubb Jersey , Fla. — The Florida Panthers hope to get on track on Saturday night against the visiting Vancouver Canucks.The Panthers (0-1-1) have only played two games — some rivals have played as many as five — so there’s a l-o-n-g way to go. But even so, the Panthers know they came up one point short of the playoffs last season, and these October games count just as much as the ones in February.The Panthers also know that their Hall of Fame goalie, Roberto Luongo, is out with a knee injury, likely for a month, and a lot is riding on backup James Reimer, who gave up five goals in Thursday’s 5-4 home loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.Article continues below ...“We win and lose as a team,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said when asked about Reimer. “There’s no talking about goalies or individual play.”Coaches generally don’t talk about goalies only when they’re not happy with the performance. It’s possible that Boughner will start third-string goalie Michael Hutchinson, who has played 102 NHL games and was recalled from the American Hockey League once Luongo was injured.Meanwhile, the Canucks (2-2-0) traveled to Tampa Bay and beat the Lightning 4-1 on Thursday night. The score was tied midway through the third period, when Brock Boeser scored the winner.Vancouver figures to start former Panthers goalie Jacob Markstrom. However, it’s possible that Anders Nilsson, who made 33 saves to beat Tampa Bay in his first start of the year, gets the call in an effort to play the hot goalie.The Panthers will pay special attention to Canucks rookie Elias Pettersson, the fifth overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft.Pettersson, who drives hard to the net, turns 20 next month Authentic Phillip Lindsay Jersey , but scouts already rave about his “elite” playmaking ability and “exceptional” vision.Playing against men last season, he led the Swedish Hockey League with 56 points, scoring 24 goals and earning Rookie of the Year and Forward of the Year honors. He was also named the playoffs MVP, the first time the SHL has awarded that trophy unanimously.This season, Pettersson leads Vancouver with four goals, including one on Thursday that bounced off his chest.“Very lucky, but I’ll take it,” said Pettersson, who also leads Vancouver with seven points. “Every goal is worth one. It doesn’t matter how ugly or nice it is.”The Panthers wouldn’t mind scoring some hideous goals — as long as they get a win.Panthers captain Aleksander Barkov’s first line — with Evgenii Dadonov and Nick Bjugstad on the wings — is clicking. On Thursday, Dadonov had one goal and two assists, Barkov had one of each, and Bjugstad had one goal.“Daddy, Barky and Bjuggy were flying,” Boughner said.Barkov and Dadonov are each averaging four shots on goal per game this season, and Bjugstad had four on Thursday.Barkov, however, isn’t focused on the stats.“We scored a couple of goals, but we lost http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/phillip-lindsay-jersey , so it doesn’t matter,” he said. “We’re playing really well in the offensive zone. But we need to learn how to block shots at the end — those small things that win games.”Florida’s power play is 0 of 7 in two games and has also allowed a short-handed goal.Meanwhile, Vancouver’s power play, which was the ninth-best unit in the NHL last season thanks in part to Bo Horvat’s lethal shot-making, has converted 26.7 percent of its chances so far this season. Horvat has two of Vancouver’s four power-play goals.Boughner is certainly wary of Canucks forwards such as Pettersson, Horvat, Boeser and Sven Baertschi.“Our special teams have to be better,” Boughner said. “It’s just a matter of execution and bearing down on our chances.” LOS ANGELES (AP) Kings coach John Stevens decided to put ”That 70’s Line” on hiatus for a night.Instead, having forwards Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson play with center Adrian Kempe gave Los Angeles‘ chances of making the postseason a much-needed reboot.Toffoli and Pearson scored, Kempe had two assists and the Kings moved back into playoff position with a 3-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Monday.Stevens shuffled his lines coming off a 7-2 loss to St. Louis on Saturday, getting the response he was looking for from Los Angeles’ three emerging stars on offense.”I was really happy for the Kempe line tonight,” Stevens said. ”We talked to that line just how much we needed them to play like they did earlier in the year. It could really balance out our attack, and I thought they did tonight.”Jonathan Quick made 35 saves for his fourth shutout of the season and Anze Kopitar also scored for the Kings, who jumped into third place in the Pacific Division with their fifth victory in seven games. Los Angeles is one point ahead of Anaheim in the division standings.Anders Nilsson made 30 saves for the Canucks, who were shut out for the second consecutive game. Vancouver has scored three goals during a four-game losing streak.Toffoli gave the Kings a 1-0 lead 1:57 into the second period with his 22nd of the season. Jake Muzzin made a long pass from deep in the Kings own zone to the red line that sprung Toffoli on a breakaway, which he finished with a wrist shot over a kneeling Nilsson.”Ty on a breakaway there, he’s not going to miss those too often,” Pearson said.Muzzin had an assist for the second straight game Womens Phillip Lindsay Jersey , leaving him one short of matching his career high of 31 in the 2015-16 season.Kempe had the secondary assist, ending his six-game point drought.Kopitar made it 2-0 at 14:54. His centering pass deflected off Troy Stecher’s stick and went fluttering in over Nilsson. It was Kopitar’s first goal during his four-game point streak, to go along with four assists.Derek Forbort and Drew Doughty had assists on Kopitar’s 28th goal.Pearson put the Kings ahead 3-0 with his 13th goal at 10:53 of the third, waiting out Nilsson until the goalie was on his knees and had left an open net. It was Pearson’s third goal in five games following a stretch of 15 without one.Pearson said he wanted to be patient and let Nilsson run himself out of position to make a play. It was also a sequence that reflected the back-to-basics approach the Kings employed after matching their season high in goals allowed against the Blues.”Obviously, the last game wasn’t what we wanted,” Pearson said. ”It’s good to get the win here and in a good way, too. We had a good, solid defensive game, and when we’re that way we create a lot of stuff going the other way.”For the floundering Canucks, who are 4-12-3 in their last 19 games, coach Travis Green hopes his team can try to focus on little victories instead of its disappearing offense. Green pointed to the three power plays created against the Kings after being limited to one opportunity with the man advantage in each of the previous four games.”It’s going to weigh on them,” Green said about the lack of goals. ”Wasn’t too long ago where we were scoring and sprinkling them around a little bit. Again, you play a game, you reset and you get back at it.”NOTES: The Kings are 7-4-1 in the first game of a back-to-back set. … The Canucks are 3-6-0 in the second game of a back-to-back.UP NEXTCanucks: Visit the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night.Kings: At the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.—
