Justin Williams Jersey
WASHINGTON (AP) — Trailing the defending Stanley Cup champions by four in the second period Justin Williams Jersey , the Anaheim Ducks believed they had a chance.They were right.Pontus Aberg scored twice in the third, including the go-ahead goal with 5:05 remaining, and the Ducks stopped Washington’s seven-game win streak with a 6-5 victory over the Capitals on Sunday.“It’s hockey,” Aberg said. “Anything can happen.”The Ducks trailed 5-1 before rallying for their fourth consecutive victory. Ryan Getzlaf had a goal and two assists and Rickard Rakell had a goal and an assist in the finale of a five-game trip.“Believe me, there wasn’t anybody on that bench accepting where we were just because we’d had success previously in winning three in a row,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “That wasn’t even in their minds. They’re in the moment now, and it’s our job to keep them in that moment.”Anaheim became the first NHL team to overcome a four-goal deficit on the road to win in regulation since Colorado accomplished the feat against Florida on March 3, 1999. It was the second time in franchise history that the Ducks overcame a four-goal deficit to win in any fashion, joining a 5-4 overtime victory against Winnipeg on March 31 Custom Florida Panthers Jerseys , 2014.Evgeny Kuznetsov and Chandler Stephenson each had a goal and an assist for Washington, which chased John Gibson after scoring three times in the first part of the first period.“You really can’t fault him on it,” Carlyle said of Gibson. “But they had three goals on (11) shots, and as a coach you’ve got a decision to make for the rest of your team, not him.”It was Anaheim’s highest scoring game of the season. Ryan Miller stopped 19 of 21 shots for the win.“I can’t remember anything like that honestly,” Miller said. “We had half the game to kind of get ourselves back, and we did it.”Aberg’s ninth goal of the season came moments after Anaheim killed off Washington’s fifth power play, and resulted from a turnover in the neutral zone.Kiefer Sherwood took the puck into the right corner of the Ducks’ attacking zone and tried to feed Getzlaf in front. With Caps goaltender Braden Holtby coming out of his crease, Getzlaf failed to make solid contact.Aberg was first to the loose puck http://www.officialhurricanes.com/authen...our-jersey , where he easily guided it into an open goal from a few feet out.“I just tried to be patient, not to rush it, because I didn’t want to miss that one,” he said.Down 5-1, Andrew Cogliano and Rakell scored even-strength goals 55 seconds apart in the second period. Aberg and Hampus Lindholm then converted on back-to-back power plays 1:45 apart to tie it at 5 midway through the third.Nicklas Backstrom, Tom Wilson and Nic Dowd also scored for the Capitals, and John Carlson had two assists. Holtby made 19 saves.“We got too passive I think,” Backstrom said. “When we were up 5-1 we should have been more aggressive than we were. It’s our fault.”NOTES: Miller picked up his 374th win, tying John Vanbiesbrouck for the lead among American-born goaltenders. … Washington’s opening goal was the 219th of Backstrom’s career Scott Darling Jersey , moving him ahead of Mike Ridley for fourth on the Capitals’ scoring list. … With his denial of Ondrej Kase with 7:57 left in the first period, Holtby became the second goaltender in Washington history to reach 10,000 saves. Olaf Kolzig had 18,013 for the Caps across 16 seasons. … Getzlaf now has points in six of his last eight games (four goals, six assists).UP NEXTDucks: Begin a four-game homestand on Wednesday against Chicago.Capitals: Start a three-game road trip with a Stanley Cup rematch Tuesday at Vegas. Matt Martin is going back to the New York Islanders.The Toronto Maple Leafs have dealt the feisty forward to the Islanders, who drafted him in 2008. The Leafs get minor-league goalie Eamon McAdam in the deal.Also on Tuesday, the Islanders agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with goalie Robin Lehner. Lehner had a 3.01 goals-against average with a .908 save percentage in 53 games with the Buffalo Sabres last season.The Sabres declined to give Lehner a $4 million qualifying offer as a restricted free agent and relinquished his rights. He will try to improve the Islanders goaltending which allowed a league-high 293 goals last season.Martin signed a four-year, $10 million deal with the Leafs prior to the 2016 season. After playing every game in his first season with the Leafs Youth Sebastian Aho Jersey , Martin suited up for just 50 games this past season and did not dress for Toronto’s seven-game playoff series against the Boston Bruins.In 132 games for the Leafs, the 29-year-old Martin had eight goals, 13 assists and 173 penalty minutes.The 23-year-old McAdam split the 2017-18 season between Bridgeport of the AHL and Worcester of the ECHL. A third-round pick of the Islanders in 2013, McAdam has not played in the NHL.The move comes two days after the Leafs beat out the Islanders for marquee free agent John Tavares, who had been with New York since starting his NHL career in 2009.It marks the first trade between new Leafs GM Kyle Dubas and the man who preceded him in that role – Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello.—
