BUFFALO Carter Hutton Jersey Womens , N.Y. (AP) — Jeff Skinner’s second effort extended the NHL’s longest win streak.Skinner scored 3:06 into overtime after getting the tying goal late in regulation, and the Buffalo Sabres beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-2 on Friday for their eighth straight win.It’s the longest streak for Buffalo since winning 10 games in a row to start the 2006-07 season. That also was the last season the Sabres (15-6-2) had this many victories after 23 games.Buffalo didn’t get its 15th win last season until February and finished in last place.The Sabres have come from behind to win six times during their streak.“Guys don’t give up and sort of have that belief that you can come back,” Skinner said.Casey Mittelstadt also scored, and Carter Hutton made 31 saves in his seventh straight victory.Brendan Gallagher and Andrew Shaw scored for the Canadiens, who have lost three straight. Phillip Danault had two assists, and Antti Niemi stopped 37 shots.“We lost a big point,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said. “We minimized the scoring chances against a team that’s doing well. We were in a good spot until the final few minutes.”Skinner scored both of his goals on rebound chances near the front of the net. The top-line winger acquired in an offseason trade with Carolina has 17 goals, tied with David Pastrnak for the league lead.“He has a dog-on-a-bone mentality http://www.kingsproshop.com/authentic-tyler-toffoli-jersey ,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said. “Any loose puck or retrieval, he was going to get on it.”Skinner got the winning goal late in a 4-on-3 power play after he drew a slashing penalty on Montreal’s Max Domi. Skinner knocked in a rebound while falling down between the faceoff circles following Niemi’s saves on shots by Jack Eichel and Rasmus Ristolainen.Skinner tied the game with 2:26 left in regulation. Gathering the rebound of Zach Bogosian’s shot in the right circle, Skinner flung a backhand by a sliding Niemi.Buffalo’s Jake McCabe then hit the post on a slap shot with 29 seconds left in regulation.Shaw’s power-play goal gave Montreal a 2-1 lead 8:18 into the third period. Danault won a faceoff in the Sabres’ zone and Shaw deflected David Schlemko’s slap shot past Hutton five seconds after Jason Pominville went to penalty box for holding.The Canadiens had tied the game late in the second when Danault set up Gallagher on a 2-on-1 for his 11th of the season on a wrist shot from the right circle.Gallagher had a goal disallowed about five minutes earlier when video replays confirmed he kicked the puck into the net.Having allowed 10 goals in their previous two losses, the Canadiens were pleased with their improvement on defense.“The positive point from tonight is we had a great defensive game,” Danault said. “Nemo was solid in net and our D was playing well, too.”Mittelstadt scored off a rebound with 7:21 remaining in the opening period. Conor Sheary deflected McCabe’s shot from the point off the right post and Mittelstadt reached in from the right edge of the crease to sweep the puck across the goal line.NOTES: Domi had a 12-game point streak snapped. It was the longest by a Canadiens player since Pierre Turgeon had a 13-game streak in April 1995. … Sabres D Marco Scandella returned after missing one game with a lower-body injury. … Canadiens F Matthew Peca moved back into the lineup, replacing Charles Hudon at left wing on the third line. Peca centered Montreal’s fourth line before being scratched for Wednesday’s 5-2 loss in New Jersey. … D Brett Kulak made his Canadiens debut after being called up from the minors on Thursday. Kulak and D Karl Alzner entered the lineup in place of Mike Reilly and Xavier Ouellet.UP NEXTCanadiens: Home against the Boston Bruins on Saturday.Sabres: At Detroit on Saturday NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville coach Peter Laviolette pulled out a bull’s head to lighten the grind of the 82-game NHL regular season and challenge the Predators to get a couple of road wins.Win both games in western Canada Devan Dubnyk Jersey , and Laviolette would put on the bull’s head while talking to reporters.The Predators won both contests, beating Calgary 5-3 and shutting out the Oilers in Edmonton 3-0 on Saturday night.So Laviolette put on the bull’s head.“Guys want to have fun at the end of the day,” Laviolette said Monday. “When there’s a couple minutes left in the game and Roman (Josi) finally puts in the empty netter and they’re laughing at me and calling for Bushwhacker at the press conference you know I’m in trouble. So like I said, it was fun. It was good to go up there and win a couple games and just have some fun.”This isn’t the first time, and likely not the last, that Laviolette has offered up a quirky challenge to his Predators. Last season, Laviolette and his coaches wore Christmas suits during a game just before the holiday.Laviolette’s wife, Kristen Womens Eric Staal Jersey , spotted the bull’s head at a store and brought it home knowing her husband would use it somehow. The bull’s head reminded Laviolette of the famed rodeo bull, Bushwhacker.“He goes into teams’ buildings and he dismantles people,” Laviolette said of the now-retired Bushwhacker. “And we needed that type of an effort going up into western Canada.”Credit Josi the captain with figuring out that Laviolette would wear the bull’s head while talking to reporters if the Predators won both games.With the victories, the defending Presidents’ Trophy winners sit atop both the Central Division and the NHL with 14 points and a 7-1 record having won five straight games.“When he tried it on, everybody was laughing because it actually moved with his mouth, which was pretty sick,” forward Filip Forsberg said. “So yeah, he’s a man of his word. Everybody appreciated that.” Defenseman P.K. Subban was among those who shot video of Laviolette wearing the head http://www.minnesotawildteamshops.com/authentic-jared-spurgeon-jersey , and photos were on the wall inside the locker room Monday with the coach wearing the head and giving a thumb’s up beside goalie Juuse Saros. Two more photos show Laviolette talking with reporters.“Everybody got a good kick out of it,” Subban said. “I think professional sports sometimes can be a little too serious, so it’s always nice when you can have some fun like that with your coach.”Laviolette has made it very clear he will never wear the bull’s head again.“He’s done, he’s retired,” Laviolette said after practice Monday. “He won’t be coming back.”
