NEWARK Adidas Jay Beagle Jersey , N.J. (AP) The New Jersey Devils retired career scoring leader Patrik Elias’ No. 26 jersey in a ceremony before their game against the New York Islanders on Saturday night.The 41-year-old former Czech forward played his final game in 2016, finishing a 20-year career in New Jersey with two Stanley Cup championships and most of the team’s scoring records.”For someone growing up in Eastern Europe, in a communist country, there’s no way I could have ever dreamed of this day,” said Elias, whose eyes welled with tears during his speech that was interrupted several times by chants of ”Paddy! Paddy!”Always a fan favorite, Elias walked through a section of the stands at the Prudential Center before taking his place on the ice with his wife, two daughters Adidas Curtis McKenzie Jersey , former and current teammates and the franchise’s owners and management.The podium on the ice was shaped as a puck with the No. 26 on it, and it was by surrounded by other super-sized pucks with the same number and two trophies, the Stanley Cup and The Prince of Wales trophy, presented to the Eastern Conference winner.Elias played on four conference champions, scoring the winning goal in Game 7 against Philadelphia in 2000.Elias is the first European player to have his number retired by the Devils, and the first forward. Defensemen Scott Stevens (No. 4), Scott Niedermayer (No. 27) and Ken Daneyko (No. 3) and goaltender Martin Brodeur (No. 30) also had their jerseys retired. All four were in attendance with Brodeur, of course Adidas Nick Holden Jersey , getting the biggest ovation.It was appropriate that Elias’ No. 26 was raised to the rafters at the Prudential Center against the Islanders, the team he played his most games against, 91, and had his most points, 86.Elias is the Devils’ leader in points (1025), goals (408), assists (617), points in one season (96) Adidas Paul Stastny Jersey , points in a playoff season (23) and game-winning goals (80), .— TAMPA, Fla. — While the Tampa Bay Lightning wait for All-Stars Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov to find an early-season groove, they have others who can carry the load.The Detroit Red Wings, meanwhile, are just trying to find any kind of a spark to get their season moving in the right direction as they enter Thursday’s game in Tampa.Last season, the Lightning bolted to the top of the standings behind the play of Stamkos and Kucherov — Stamkos had 24 points in October while Kucherov had 13 goals. In the opening four games this season, the duo has combined for just one goal and four assists.Article continues below ...But Tampa Bay’s scoring depth runs deep. Tyler Johnson Adidas Max Pacioretty Jersey , coming off a hat trick performance in Tuesday’s victory against Carolina, and Brayden Point — both former All-Stars — have provided an offensive boost to give Tampa Bay three victories in four games to start the season.A reunion of Johnson with linemates Ondrej Palat and Kucherov — who set the league on fire in 2014-15 — has helped boost the Lightning offense.“They’re unbelievable players. I love playing with them,” Johnson said of being back with his linemates. “It kind of just makes the game easier, it kind of slows it down, we get some opportunities. I think as everything progresses, we’re going to get a little bit closer and closer and be able to work and kind of progress on a few things and I think we can be better. “Hopefully we can just continue to work on things and work on video and just be on the same page here.”The Lightning are also close to getting back veteran forward and alternate captain Ryan Callahan, who underwent shoulder surgery in May and was expected to be out until mid-November. But Callahan was cleared for contact two weeks ago and is ahead of schedule.Tampa Bay cleared a potential roster spot for Callahan by placing Cory Conacher on waivers — and later signing him to a one-year, one-way contract extension that carries a salary cap hit of $700 Adidas Seth Griffith Jersey ,000.Lightning head coach Jon Cooper said on Wednesday that Callahan could return to the lineup by Nov. 1, though he hinted Callahan may be ready before the team returns from its upcoming five-game road trip that starts Saturday in Minnesota.The Red Wings, meanwhile, are off to their worst start since 1985-86 with an 0-4-2 record. Detroit is coming off a 7-3 loss to Montreal on Monday, and on Wednesday claimed forward Jacob De la Rose off waivers from the Canadiens. He will join the team once his visa situation is cleared up.Detroit is looking for any sign to help inject some life in a proud franchise that is down to start the season.“You can’t let your body language be the first thing that other players notice because they are going to jump all over it,” Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin told the Detroit Free Press. “We have to pick ourselves up. Truly the next shift is the most important after a goal and we need to get the puck back and back in their zone and have a productive shift where we are changing the momentum back in our favor. Don’t get frustrated.”
