The Islanders acquired defenseman Brandon Davidson from Edmonton
GLENDALE http://www.billscheapshop.com/cheap-auth...len-jersey , Ariz. (AP) Oliver Ekman-Larsson and the Arizona Coyotes aren’t going to the NHL playoffs this season. However, that doesn’t mean they’re taking it easy against contending teams.Ekman-Larsson scored twice late in the third period, including his 100th career goal, to lead the Coyotes to a 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Monday night.The 26-year-old is just the second Coyotes defenseman to reach the milestone and the 18th player in franchise history to do so.”That just means I’m doing something good out there,” Ekman-Larsson said.The Coyotes previously hung tough into the third period before losing against playoff-bound Nashville and Minnesota, and beat Los Angeles in a shootout.”We understand we are not in the playoffs, but we understand we are playing teams that are going in the playoffs,” Coyotes assistant coach John MacLean said. ”We understand we have to match their intensity … we didn’t back off all night.”Max Domi also had two goals for Arizona, including an empty-netter with 21 seconds left, and had an assist on Ekman-Larsson’s tiebreaking goal. Richard Panik scored early in the second period for the Coyotes, and Antti Raanta stopped 42 shots.Dougie Hamilton had a goal and an assist, and Sean Monahan also scored as Calgary – with its wild card hopes fading – lost for the fourth time in five games. Mike Smith finished with 25 saves.Domi stole a pass in the Calgary zone and beat Smith to tie the score at 2-2 with about 2 1/2 minutes left in the second period.Both teams missed several scoring chances in the third period until Ekman-Larsson put the Coyotes ahead with 3:41 remaining, then added an empty-netter 2:04 later for his 13th of the season to double the lead.Smith started his first game at Gila River Arena since the Flames acquired him from Arizona last summer. A video tribute to the Coyotes’ all-time leader in games played and shutouts among goalies was shown during a stoppage in play in the first period, and Smith offered a quick wave after being welcomed back.”It’s disappointing, frustrating, you think you have an opportunity to get some points here tonight and you let it slip away,” Smith said. ”So it hurts. We needed tonight’s game. It was a big game for us and we let it slide again.”Arizona went up 1-0 on Panik’s goal at 5:15 of the second. Panik fired in a wrist shot from his knees off Clayton Keller’s cross-ice pass. Keller, a rookie, scored a point in his fifth straight game and has nine in his last 10 games. His 53 points lead the Coyotes this season.The Flames tied it on Hamilton’s goal at 9:05 of the second, his 16th of the season. Hamilton’s 43 points lead Calgary defensemen.The Flames took the lead with 4:32 left in the middle period as Monahan put in a rebound for his team-leading 31st. The advantage lasted just two minutes.Domi recorded his second three-point night of the season.”I’ll take it, but all that matters is the two points,” Domi said.Neither team scored in the first period Cheap Tre'Davious White Jersey , but a goal by Monahan at with about seven minutes to go was disallowed because of a delayed penalty. The Coyotes totaled six penalty minutes in the first, all related to physical play and scuffles with Flames players.Domi was called for high sticking and raised his penalty-minute total to 67, which leads the Coyotes.NOTES: The Coyotes were without head coach Rick Tocchet on Monday, as he left the team to attend his mother’s funeral near Toronto.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) Maybe the New Jersey Devils should retire more numbers. Every time they do it, they win.Kyle Palmieri scored two third-period goals and the Devils opened some daylight on the New York Islanders in the race for a wild-card playoff berth and made those attending Patrik Elias’ jersey retirement go home happy with a 2-1 victory Saturday night.”Actually I saw a stat … tweeted out that we were undefeated so we had to keep that going,” Palmieri said after leading the Devils’ comeback. ”It was cool. It was a pretty cool event any time you’re a part of this. I’ve been in a couple of ceremonies in the past and it’s cool to celebrate the guys you grew up watching.”Taylor Hall extended his NHL-best points streak to 14 games with two assists, and Keith Kinkaid made 30 saves as the Devils maintained a five-point lead over Columbus in the race for the top wild-card spot, and increased their lead over the ninth-place Islanders to seven points.The win snapped a two-game losing streak and gave New Jersey a 5-0 record in games in which they retire a jersey number.Elias was the team’s career scoring leader and a two-time Stanley Cup champion.Jordan Eberle scored in the second period for the Islanders. Jaroslav Halak was outstanding, making 31 saves for New York, which has lost three straight (0-2-1).Islanders forward Andrew Ladd said this was a tough game to lose. It marked the second time this week New York had a lead after two periods and lost.”Absolutely, especially a third-period loss,” Ladd said. ”It’s deflating. We had a real opportunity to start moving up. You give up a game like that and it knocks you back a little bit. It’s frustrating. I don’t know any other way to say it. We have to find a way to pick ourselves up and keep going.”Palmeri got his inner with 8:49 to play, when he redirected Sami Vatanen’s shot from the right point past Halakpoin. It was his 16th goal of the season and came from the goaltender’s crease.The Devils survived a late Islanders’ power play and a hard shot by Eberle in the closing minute with the New York net empty.”It was huge game,” Kinkaid said. ”Lots of blocks and we didn’t give up much. That’s playoff hockey right there. Pucks didn’t get to the net and credit to all our guys who sacrificed their bodies out there. When it did go through I had to do my best to make a big save when possible.”Palmieri tied it at 1 with 13:25 left with a shot into the upper corner of the net from low in the left circle. Hall had nudged the puck to him near the Devils blue line and Palmieri skated up the ice before ripping a shot for his 15th goal.The Islanders had taken the lead early in the second period when Eberle capped a tic-tac-toe 3-on-2 rush by tapping Anthony Beauvillier’s pass into an open net for his 22nd goal. Rookie Matthew Barzal picked up his 49th assist of the season on the play.Islander coach Doug Weight said his team had chances to go up 2-0 and failed to capitalize.”It’s tough way to lose,” Weight said. ”We have to find a way to get results. We have to keep digging. We are still in the neighborhood. It’s a real humbling, tough loss.”NOTES: The Islanders acquired defenseman Brandon Davidson from Edmonton for a third-round pick in the 2019 draft earlier in the day. … The Devils sent F Blake Pietila to Binghamton (AHL). … Michael Grabner, who was acquired from the Rangers on Thursday night, played his first game for New Jersey and wore No. 40 F Blake Coleman gave Grabner the number and switched to No. 20. … New Jersey is 2-0-1 against the Islanders this season.UP NEXTIslanders: At Montreal on Thursday night.Devils: At Pittsburgh on Tuesday night—
