RALEIGH Custom Ottawa Senators Jerseys , N.C. — The Columbus Blue Jackets have shown they have plenty in reserve.How much they’ll need against the Carolina Hurricanes will be one of the questions for Saturday night’s game at PNC Arena.The Blue Jackets excelled with a somewhat makeshift lineup in its latest game when illness spread to some team members.Article continues below ...“There’s opportunities for different guys,” left winger Anthony Duclair said of the lineup alterations. “Everybody did a great job and all four lines were rolling.”That came in Thursday night’s 7-3 home victory against the Florida Panthers.The result means the Blue Jackets arrive with a six-game points streak for this matchup between Metropolitan Division teams.While Columbus is riding a bit of a high, at least on the ice, the Hurricanes are trying to get things turned around.They have been off since Monday’s overtime victory against the Chicago Blackhawks, providing only their second victory in an eight-game stretch.“We haven’t (won) a lot lately,” said Hurricanes center Sebastian Aho, who scored the winner in the latest outing. “We have to find a way to get wins.”Aho had gone 12 games without a goal even though he leads the Hurricanes with 22 points.“I know when I’m playing good www.officialflyersproshop.com ,” Aho said. “You get a few goals, you get some confidence.”How much of the firepower is available for the Blue Jackets might not be determined until closer to game time. The status of forwards Riley Nash and Artemi Panarin and goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is notable because they missed Thursday night’s game because of illness.Even Columbus coach John Tortorella was under the weather, skipping his normal postgame media session on a night when there would have been plenty of positives to discuss.Despite all the offense getting attention, Columbus goalie Joonas Korpisalo provided some of the spark.“The only job is to get the puck out of the net,” said Korpisalo, who made 35 saves. “I just have to make saves. I’m happy when we score seven.”For the division-leading Blue Jackets on a night when they weren’t a full strength, they could point to Korpisalo as providing some of the energy with his stops.“He got the bench going Philadelphia Flyers T-Shirts Authentic ,” Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky said.The Hurricanes hope to see success on special teams extend into the next game. They’ve been largely miserable on power plays, but they scored their two regulation goals in the Chicago game with the extra man.Coach Rod Brind’Amour said this ought to be one way for the Hurricanes to realize the value of the production on special teams because it led directly to a positive result.The Hurricanes can also point to goaltending as an area that needs to come around. Hurricanes goalie Scott Darling has played in the past two games and might be rounding into form after missing the first couple of weeks of the season with an injury.“We need saves at times when we breakdown,” Brind’Amour said. “Keep the team in the game when we need it.”Columbus won 3-1 in an Oct. 5 home game against Carolina. COLUMBUS, Ohio — The Toronto Maple Leafs carry a four-game winning streak into Nationwide Arena on Friday night to face a team that’s even hotter.The Columbus Blue Jackets (22-12-3) returned from the Christmas break on Thursday night with their fifth consecutive victory, a 4-3 win over the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Pierre-Luc Dubois‘ goal 31 seconds into overtime.The Maple Leafs (25-10-2) will be the more rested team, playing their first game since the layoff, but coach Mike Babcock said afterpractice on Thursday in Toronto that he doesn’t think that’s necessarily an advantage.Article continues below ...“It concerns me a little bit that Columbus is playing just from the fact that if you watched this practice you know we’re a little bit rusty to say the least Philadelphia Flyers Hoodies Authentic ,” Babcock said. “But we’ll be better tomorrow and get ready for them.”Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly liked being able to have a practice before a game.“I think we should all be fresh and ready to go,” he said “We’ve got some big games coming up here. … It works to our advantage to have a practice today and play tomorrow.”The Maple Leafs kept their winning streak intact on Sunday with a 5-4 overtime victory over the Detroit Red Wings. John Tavares scored the tying goal in the final seconds of the third period and Kasperi Kapanen the winner in overtime.Tavares leads the Maple Leafs with 24 goals in his first season with the club and Mitchell Marner has a team-best 38 assists and 50 points.Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews was named this week in fan voting as the captain of the Atlantic Division team for the NHL All-Star game next month.“To be selected is a huge honor and to be the captain of a division is pretty special,” Matthews said. The 21-year-old Matthews has accumulated 19 goals and 34 points in 23 games this season.“It’s exciting for our franchise,” Babcock said. “Obviously, he’s a good player and it’s a real compliment for him from the fans.”The Maple Leafs are running into one of the hottest goaltenders in the league. Columbus’ Sergei Bobrovsky was honored as the NHL’s First Star of the Week. Bobrovsky was given the first night of the Blue Jackets’ back-to-back off on Thursday after posting a 5-0-1 record with two shutouts in six straight starts. He made 34 and 39 saves in his last two games. “He’s playing at the top of his game, really, with a lot of confidence and he gives us a lot of confidence and keeps us calm on the bench Philadelphia Flyers Hats Authentic ,” Blue Jackets winger Cam Atkinson said. “We expect him to make those saves, and it’s amazing what he does for morale and then our team on the ice and the bench. He picks us up when we need him.” Although the Blue Jackets keep winning, coach John Tortorella was not particularly impressed with the how the team played last weekend at Philadelphia and New Jersey in victories.“I thought we sucked in both games,” he said. “It’s time to get back to work. It’s simple. You had your break. Christmas is over. It’s a National Hockey League season. I hope we play better after the break.”Besides Bobrovsky, Atkinson has provided a significantcontribution for the Blue Jackets with four goals in the last four games and 23 for the season.“He’s one of the top players in this league,” Tortorella said. “I think we feels that.”Against the Rangers, the Blue Jackets let an early lead slip away before defenseman Zach Werenski scored the tying goal with 2:20 left in the third period and then Dubois ended it. “You’ve got to find a way to get points and that’s what we’ve been doing Custom Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys ,” Werenski said. “It’s crunch time now. These are huge points. Every game matters.”
