Derek Ryan also scored and Cam Ward stopped 25 shots to help Carolina to its second straight win since dropping six straight.The Hurricanes temporarily pulled into a tie with Columbus for the Eastern Conference’s final playoff spot. The Blue Jackets were set to play Anaheim later Friday.”It’s crunch time, obviously,” said Ward, one of only two Carolina players who were on the team when it last made the playoffs in 2009. ”We have 17 games left now and, I mean, we’re in this together. We’re gonna fight and want to compete. Obviously we’ve got to go on a run here to get ourselves in the wild card.”Hall’s second-period goal extended his point streak to 24 games. He has scored in six of his last seven games, and 17 of his 29 goals have come since Jan. 1.Keith Kinkaid made 27 saves for the Devils Cooper Kupp Jersey Elite , who dropped both games of a back-to-back road set.”We need a lot more guys going (other than Hall),” New Jersey coach John Hynes said. ”We don’t have enough guys playing as hard enough and committed enough, as detailed enough, for us to have success, and we got what we deserved.”After a slow, sloppy first period, the Hurricanes struck 8:10 into the second. Ryan was the beneficiary of some help from the Devils defense when his backhanded pass through the crease hit defenseman Damon Severson’s skate and redirected in.Hall evened the score with 32 seconds left in the period, redirecting Sami Vatanen’s wrist shot through his legs and just inside the near post.The Hurricanes pulled ahead for good with a nifty deflection in the third. Brett Pesce fired a slap shot from the right point that was off-target, but Teravainen http://www.losangelesramsteamonline.com/cooper-kupp-jersey , who had settled off the side of the crease, had the puck bank off his leg and past Kinkaid.”I was just trying to be around the net and Pesce shot it and it goes off my leg,” Teravainen said. ”It’s pretty good. It doesn’t hurt your ankle when it goes in.”Ward stopped the Devils’ final 12 shots, and Williams sealed it with a backhander from center ice into the empty net.”Tonight I thought our execution was really good,” Ward said. ”We stuck with it, we’re playing with some swag, some confidence, and that’s good to see.”NOTES: Hall’s goal was his 70th point of the season, becoming the first Devils player to reach the 70-point mark since Ilya Kovalchuk and Patrik Elias in 2011-12. … The Devils had won five of their previous six against the Hurricanes dating to November 2016. … Hurricanes F Victor Rask had an assist on Ryan’s goal to give him three assists in his last four games. … Hurricanes F Joakim Nordstrom missed his second straight game with an upper-body injury.

The Penguins haven’t lost six straight since 2006. Pittsburgh also ended a four-game home losing streak and continued a six-game points streak against Arizona.“This is a proud group, we have high expectations and we believe in these guys,” Sullivan said. “I’m thrilled for these players because they got rewarded for their efforts.”DeSmith had his second shutout of the season and third of his career. Starter Matt Murray served as the backup for the second straight game. He has one win in five home starts.DeSmith, signed by Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent in July 2017 Jared Goff Jersey Elite , has allowed five goals in his last six appearances.“It’s always great to see your teammates have success, especially in his case,” Crosby said. “He’s just coming in and doing a great job.”Crosby scored his eighth goal, and Dominik Simon also had a goal and an assist. Patric Hornqvist scored his fifth, and Brian Dumoulin had his first goal in 22 games for Pittsburgh.Darcy Kuemper stopped 28 shots for the Coyotes. They lost their third straight game after winning the previous five.

Crosby, streaking down the right side, lifted a backhander from a sharp angle over the shoulder of a standing Kuemper.“He was coming with a lot of speed Authentic Brandin Cooks Jersey ,” Kuemper said. “I didn’t even go down. I wasn’t really over-cheating. He just made a really good shot and made me look silly.”Simon extended the lead 1:52 later when he redirected a Bryan Rust pass behind Kuemper from the top of the crease.Hornqvist made it a 3-0 game with 15.3 seconds to play in the second period. Hornqvist one-timed a behind-the-net feed from Simon over Kuemper’s blocker.It was more than enough to help the Penguins snap their losing streak.“It’s one win,” Crosby said. “I think the goal is to play every game like this one and give ourselves a chance every night. It’s too good of a league not to. This is the urgency we need every night.”NOTES: Arizona’s Clayton Keller played in his 100th NHL game. The Penguins have won seven of their last nine against Arizona.
