TAMPA Filip Forsberg Jersey , Fla. (AP) On a Florida road trip against two streaking teams, the Ottawa Senators have been no pushovers at all.Mike Hoffman scored two goals and six other Ottawa players had multipoint games as the Senators beat Tampa Bay 7-4 on Tuesday night, ending the Lightning’s 10-game run without a regulation loss.One night earlier, the struggling Senators (25-33-11) halted an eight-game home winning streak for the Florida Panthers.”It’s something positive that we can look at in a season that really hasn’t gone the way we expected,” said Hoffman, who reached the 20-goal mark for the fifth consecutive season. ”These two games show that no one in this room has quit. It’s probably the toughest two teams you can play back-to-back in the entire league as of right now. We want to finish on the strong side.”Tom Pyatt, Erik Karlsson, Ryan Dzingel and Marian Gaborik each had a goal and an assist for the Senators. Magnus Paajarvi also scored, and Mike Condon finished with 42 saves for his first victory since Feb. 1, ending a seven-game winless stretch.”It’s been a while, personally Juuse Saros Jersey ,” Condon said. ”It’s a good feeling that I have missed.”Tampa Bay, tied with Nashville atop the NHL standings at 100 points, hadn’t lost in regulation since Feb. 17. But the Lightning’s lead over Boston in the Atlantic Division was trimmed to four points after the Bruins rallied past Carolina.The defeat also spoiled the first career hat trick for J.T. Miller, who has five goals in seven games for Tampa Bay since being acquired from the New York Rangers at the Feb. 26 trade deadline. Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos each had three assists.The Lightning, however, allowed seven goals in a game for the first time since Jan. 12, 2015, at Philadelphia.”Turnovers. Bad tracks. Inability to block shots. Inability to kill a penalty,” coach Jon Cooper said. ”Add them all up. Probably a little bit of bad bounces I guess, but maybe that drops it by one or two. Still score four and lose by three … that’s a tough night at home.”Tampa Bay opened the scoring 4:19 into the game but Ottawa scored three times in the first period and never looked back, allowing the Lightning to get within a goal just once the rest of the way.”Playing a team coming in on a back-to-back and giving up seven goals … it’s unacceptable Kyle Turris Jersey ,” Tampa Bay defenseman Anton Stralman said. ”It’s hard to win games giving up that many goals.”NOTES: Tampa Bay activated G Peter Budaj off injured reserve. Budaj saw his first action since Dec. 27, entering in relief of Andrei Vasilevskiy for the third period. … Lightning G Louis Domingue was reassigned to the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League. … Ottawa RW Alex Burrows appeared in his 900th NHL game. … Senators D Erik Burgdoerfer got his first NHL point. … Tampa Bay D Victor Hedman got his 100th career power-play point. … Kucherov became the fifth player in franchise history to reach 90 points in a season, joining Vincent Lecavalier, Martin St. Louis, Stamkos and Brad Richards.UP NEXTLightning: Host the Boston Bruins on Saturday.Senators: Host the Dallas Stars on Friday.— CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Henrik Lundqvist has put together a two-game stretch unlike any since goaltenders began wearing facemasks full-time.In fact, it’s possible that nobody in the NHL has ever worked this hard for back-to-back wins.Henrik Lundqvist became the first goalie to stop 50 or more shots in consecutive victories since the NHL began tracking saves in 1955, lifting New York over the Calgary Flames 3-1 on Friday night.Lundqvist tied a career high with 50 stops on his 36th birthday. He is only the third NHL goalie to post consecutive 50-save games, joining the Rangers’ Gump Worsley on Jan. 27 and 30, 1963, and Chicago’s Al Rollins on Oct. 9 and 15 Youth Matt Irwin Jersey , 1955. Worsley lost both his 50-save games, and Rollins split his.”You want to feel like you’re making a difference out there. That’s why I’m here,” Lundqvist said.No Rangers goalie had made 50 saves in a win since Mike Richter in 1996 before Lundqvist beat Vancouver 6-5 in overtime Wednesday night.”We kept them under 55 (shots) today, so we made his night a little lighter,” Rangers defenseman Marc Staal joked.Lundqvist’s best save left Mikael Backlund shaking his head in the opening minute of the second period. Lundqvist dropped his stick and acrobatically dived across the crease to get his blocker on what looked like an easy goal for the Flames’ center.Not bad for a well-worn goalie in his 797th career game.”I’m 1-0 as a 36-year-old,” quipped the veteran Swede, whose 430 career wins rank eighth on the career list.Recently acquired center Ryan Spooner led New York with a goal and an assist. The 26-year-old has one goal and six assists in three games since he was part of a package traded to the Rangers from Boston for Rick Nash. Spooner is the first in franchise history with six assists in his first three games with the team, and also the first Ranger with multipoint efforts in his first three games with the club, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.”It’s been great,” Spooner said. ”I just really want to help out and that’s what I’ve been trying to do.”Kevin Hayes and Pavel Buchnevich also scored for New York. The Ranger will try for a Western Canada sweep Saturday night when they play at Edmonton.Brett Kulak scored for Calgary, which has lost three straight and is falling back of the pack battling for the final playoff spots in the Western Conference.”It’s a matter of scoring right now. We haven’t put the puck in the net in the past three games Womens Mattias Ekholm Jersey ,” Flames captain Mark Giordano said. ”When we get those chances, we’ve got to get some traffic and bear down.”The Flames threatened Lundqvist with a power play 27 seconds into the game, but the veteran goaltender was up to the task.The Rangers took a 1-0 lead shortly after. On a faceoff in the Flames end, Spooner slapped the puck directly on net off the draw. Rookie goaltender Jon Gillies stopped the high shot, but he couldn’t control the rebound, and Hayes banged in the loose puck.After Lundqvist robbed Backlund, the Rangers promptly raced on an odd-man rush with Buchnevich, after being stopped on his initial chance, eventually poking the puck over the line.Spooner’s breakaway goal at 10:48 of the second made it 3-1, and that was more than enough for Lundqvist, who shut the door the rest of the way to improve to 25-21-5.Gillies had 24 stops to fall to 2-2-0. The Flames are 3-6-1 since the loss of veteran goaltender Mike Smith to a lower-body injury P.K Subban Jersey , which has left the crease to rookies Gillies and David Rittich.NOTES: Lundqvist is one of three goalies ever with 25 wins in 12 or more seasons, joining Martin Brodeur (15) and Patrick Roy (14). … Matthew Tkachuk had an assist, giving him 49 points, surpassing his total as a rookie. … Drew Shore made his debut for the Flames. He was acquired from Ottawa at the trade deadline. … The Rangers improved to 18-0-0 when leading after two periods. … Micheal Ferland (upper body) and Kris Versteeg (hip) both practiced on Friday, but wore no-contact jerseys. They’ve missed three and 43 games, respectively.UP NEXTRangers: Play at Edmonton on Saturday night.Flames: Open a three-game trip at Pittsburgh on Monday night.—
