COLUMBUS Gabriel Landeskog Jersey Kids , Ohio — standings who have each gone 6-3-1 in their last 10 games meet Tuesday night when the Calgary Flames visit the Columbus Blue Jackets.The Flames (16-9-2) will be looking to extend their winning streak to three games after a 3-2 victory in Chicago over the Blackhawks on Sunday. Sean Monahan, Elias Lindholm and Derek Ryan each scored goals for Calgary.The Blue Jackets (15-9-2) were knocked out of the top spot in the Metropolitan Division after a 3-2 loss on the road Saturday night at the New York Islanders in Nassau Coliseum.Article continues below ...Returning home should benefit the Blue Jackets. They’ve 4-0-1 in the past five games at Nationwide Arena and have won three in a row. Nine of their 14 games in December will be played at home.The Blue Jackets feel fortunate to have defenseman Ryan Murray available against the Flames after he blocked an Islanders shot in the third period and left the ice Saturday night.During Monday’s practice, he showed no ill effects from what could have proved to be a serious injury.“It’s coming right down main street. You’re right there. You’re not going to move out of the way,” he told the team’s website. “You’re hoping for the best. It could have been a lot worse.“We got X-rays. Everything looked good. I thought for sure it was broken, honestly. I was pretty fortunate in the end.”Fueling the Blue Jackets’ recent success is their power play, which ranks 15th in the NHL at 20.0 percent but has converted eight of its past 28 attempts (28.5 percent).The leader of the attack in recent games is right winger Cam Atkinson, who with an assist on Saturday night established a career high with a point in 10 consecutive games. He has 10 goals and six assists during that streak, which is tied for the second longest in franchise history behind a 13-game streak by Ryan Johansen in 2014-15.Atkinson’s linemate, center Pierre-Luc Dubois, has kept pace with seven goals and eight assists in the past eight games. Nearly a third of the way through the season, Dubois has 13 goals and 25 points.Their other lineman, left winger Artemi Panarin, leads the Blue Jackets with 27 points (seven goals, 20 assists).Forward Markus Hannikainen has contributed five points in the last eight games and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky has experienced success against the Flames in the past, posting a 7-2-2 record with a 1.88 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage.The Flames http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-j.t.-compher-jersey , who have won three of their past four games, are led by dynamic forward Johnny Gaudreau’s 31 points (10 goals, 21 assists). Sean Monahan is right behind with 29 (15 goals, 14 assists) and defenseman Mark Giordano has accumulated 21 points (three goals, 21 assists).Flames coach Bill Peters was undecided on Monday after practice whether Mike Smith (8-7-1) or David Rittich will start in goal. Smith made 22 saves in the win at Chicago and Rittich has an 8-2-1 record this season.“We’re very lucky,” Peters said, according to the team’s website. “We’ve got both goaltenders dialed in well, making big saves at key times, and it feels like the decision you make, as a group, when you put the goaltender in, it feels like you’re going to win the game no matter who you go with.”Peters was certain that former Blue Jackets forward Dalton Prout will be in the lineup after he was recalled from the American Hockey League. Prout has played in one game for the Flames this season.“Prouter will be in for sure,” Peters said. “He played real well when he went down to the American League and he’s come back so we want to get him in some games, get him into a rhythm. They’re a big strong team, a heavy team Youth Matt Nieto Jersey , a lot of o-zone grind time … he defends real well, a heavy body up front. We’ll get him in and get him going again.”Austin Czarnik also will see ice time in a return to the Calgary lineup. In 17 games, he has one goal and four points. NEW YORK (AP) — Rangers coach David Quinn has set a new tone for his team and the priority has been to outwork opponents.Marc Staal, Lias Andersson, Chris Kreider, and Mika Zibanejad scored, and Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves as New York defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-2 Monday night.“It’s a hardworking team,” Rangers forward Kevin Hayes said. “If you are not working hard, you are not playing. That’s coach’s rules. We work hard every night and we are kind of building an identity here.”The Rangers extended their dominance at Madison Square Garden, improving to 8-1-0 at home in their last nine games.Mark Stone scored twice, Brady Tkachuk had two assists and Craig Anderson stopped 29 shots for Ottawa, which fell to 2-8-1 in road games this season.“It’s tough to lose,” Stone said. “We are in the business of winning hockey games and right now we are struggling.”Andersson broke a 1-1 tie at 3:26 of the third period, benefiting from a fortuitous bounce. Ryan Strome’s shot deflected off the goaltender, then caromed off Andersson into the back of the net. The seventh overall selection from the 2017 NHL draft originally did not make the team when training camp ended Mikko Rantanen Jersey , but has been with the Rangers since early November.Ottawa challenged the play for goaltender interference, but the referee’s initial call stood.“We just sabotaged ourselves,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said of his team’s performance.”Kreider finished a 2-on-1 opportunity with a slap shot that extended the Rangers’ lead to 3-1 at 8:18 of the third period. Filip Chytil delivered a cross-ice pass to set up the opportunity.Kreider has notched nine goals and five assists as the Rangers built a 10-3-1 record since Oct. 30.The Senators knotted the game 1-1 when Stone was able to find a loose puck in front of Lundqvist at 13:03 of the opening frame. The Rangers challenged for goaltender interference but the call was not overturned and New York forfeited its timeout. Tkachuk and Colin White assisted on the play.The 21-year-old White missed the previous game with an upper-body injury, but returned to action Monday.Stone hammered a one-timer at 17:17 of the third period to pull Ottawa within one. Tkachuk and Matt Duchene assisted on the play.Staal gave the Rangers a 1-0 lead at 10:55 of the first period, converting a one-timer in the slot. Mika Zibanejad forced a turnover in the offensive zone after the Rangers had extended pressure, and found Staal alone in the high slot. Staal snapped a streak of 94 games without a goal that dated to October 2017. Jesper Fast also assisted on the play.“He is a calming influence on our team, in the locker room and on the ice,” Quinn said of Staal. “He works hard and wants to get better. He has defended well, I think he has eaten a lot of minutes and has played against the other team’s top players.”Zibanejad added an empty-netter at 18:21 of the final period and has scored a goal in each of the four games he has played in against the Senators.Lundqvist picked up career victory 440 and is five wins away from tying Terry Sawchuk for sixth place on the NHL’s all-time wins list.“We played a hard game,” Lundqvist said. “We just have to realize what we are and what we have to do to have success. It starts with hard work and we have to pay attention to the details of the game. If we do, we can beat anybody.”NOTES: Rangers forward Mats Zuccarello was sidelined for the second straight game with a groin injury. The Norwegian winger has missed eight of the previous 10 games. . As part of the NHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer initiative, the Rangers wore purple warmup jerseys, and used purple tape during pre-game warmups. . Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo returned to the lineup after being a healthy scratch Saturday against the Capitals. . New York scratched Frederik Claesson. . Ottawa defenseman Mark Borowiecki missed his second straight game with an upper body injury and the Senators scratched forward Max McCormick.UP NEXTRangers: Visit Senators on Thursday.Senators: Visit Flyers on Tuesday.
