New York Islanders Hats Authentic
NEWARK New York Islanders Hats Authentic , N.J. — The Columbus Blue Jackets have spent virtually the entire season with a winning record and have attained it without a long winning streak.The Blue Jackets seek their season-high fourth straight win Sunday afternoon when they visit the New Jersey Devils.Columbus has been at .500 just twice and has owned a winning record since a 7-4 home victory over the St. Louis Blues on Oct. 25.Article continues below ...The Blue Jackets are on their second three-game winning streak after a 4-3 victory on Saturday in Philadelphia. Columbus also is 4-0-1 in its last five games after a big game from its top line of Artemi Panarin, Pierre-Luc Dubois and Cam Atkinson. Theycombined for eight points and were on the ice for each goal.The big day came after coach John Tortorella considered breaking up the trio on a day he conceded the Blue Jackets were not at their best.“That’s a really good line and has been a good line for us for a long time,” Tortorella said. “And I was going to break them up after three shifts today. Figure that one out.”Atkinson scored twice and has three goals in his last two games after going without a goal in his previous six. Dubois collected three assists for his fourth multi-point game of the season. Panarin had a goal and two assists for his third three-point game of the season.“It’s fun,” Atkinson said. “We are depended on to score goals as a line, and we take a lot of pride in that. It’s not always going to go your way. We’ve been getting a lot of scoring chances recently and haven’t scored, but to get on the scoresheet right away, I think it loosened us up a little bit and allowed us to play free. We expect to get on the ice and score goals.”The Blue Jackets played their second straight one-goal game after Atkinson scored the game-winner against New Jersey on a penalty shot in Thursday’s 2-1 victory.“The close games we’ve been in, even though we haven’t always gotten the result, I think we’ve played very well in them,” Tortorella said. “I think in the big picture as you go through the grind of the season Custom New York Islanders Jerseys , you have to learn to win these games and play in them. If you’re fortunate enough to get involved in the playoffs, that’s what lots of games are going to be like.” New Jersey’s 31 points are last in the Eastern Conference. It is seeking consecutive wins for the first time since beating Pittsburgh and Philadelphia on Nov. 13-15. Since then, the Devils are 4-7-6 in their last 17 games.The Devils snapped a three-game losing streak with a 5-2 win over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night after losing 24 hours earlier in Columbus.Like the Blue Jackets, the Devils also received significant contributions from their top line as Taylor Hall, Kyle Palmieri and Nico Hischier combined for nine points.“It’s fun to see those guys when they’re going,” Devils defenseman Sami Vatanen said. “I don’t think there are many guys who can stop them if they keep playing like that and creating so many chances. It’s fun to watch.”Hall had two goals and two assists, giving him three goals and three assists since returning from a brief absence because of a lower body injury. Palmieri had a goal and two assists for his second three-point game of the season. Hischier posted his first multi-point game since Nov. 30.“I think everyone is sick of losing, and that might be our downfall at times, is people try to do too much, take the game over by themselves instead of working as a five-man unit and really getting through this as a team ,” Hall said. “Certainly tonight I had some jump, and I don’t think I touched the puck the first two shifts. But after that our line got rolling and started feeling good and made some plays.”Columbus is 10-3 in the last 13 meetings since the start of the 2015-16 season. Could the Columbus Blue Jackets possibly trade Artemi Panarin at this point?A week ago, it seemed likely, if not certain, that the Blue Jackets would part with their high-scoring winger because of his status as a potential free agent July 1. There would certainly be no point in holding on to Panarin for the rest of the season and getting nothing in return for him.However, the Blue Jackets have been quite active in the days leading up to the deadline, completing two separate deals with the Ottawa Senators for Matt Duchene and Ryan Dzingel.Duchene and Dzingel are both in the final years of their contract and will be free agents July 1. The Blue Jackets moved assets to acquire players who will hit the open market at the end of the year unless they suddenly sign with the Jackets.General manager Jarmo Kekalainen has apparently decided to go for the brass ring with his Blue Jackets. Kekalainen must have great faith in his team having an excellent chance to win the Stanley Cup or he wouldn't have traded for Duchene and Dzingel.That brings us to Panarin, who has scored 24 goals and 45 assists to this point in the season. If Kekalainen is indeed going for it, how could he possibly trade Panarin? Kekalainen has not ruled out trading Panarin at this point, but he would have to be overwhelmed with a trade proposal to move him.Aaron Portzline of The Athletic reported that Kekalainen islistening to offers for Panarinand that if a deal is made for the winger New York Rangers T-Shirts Authentic , it would be one that helps the Blue Jackets in the present and the future.Kekalainen is creating an intense market for Panarin because of his acquisition of Duchene and Dzingel. They were two of the more attractive players that were up for trade, and now they have been taken off the market.That means the best players available at this point are Panarin and Mark Stone of the Senators. It seems certain that Stone will be traded, and there is no chance he will remain with the Senators. Once that happens, Panarin will be the only true game-changer left on the board.That means Kekalainen should be able to command the price he wants for Panarin, and that almost certainly means a combination of players, prospects and draft picks.If that is the case, Kekalainen will have proved himself a master of the trade deadline because of the way he has acquired two strong assets and has driven up the value of his own top asset.Stone remains on the marketStone has scored 28 goals and 34 assists for the Senators this season, and he can clearly be a game-changing asset for any potential Stanley Cup hopeful that acquires him.Bob McKenzie of TSN and NBC reported that the Winnipeg Jets, Calgary Flames, Nashville Predators and Boston Bruins have the most interest in Stone. Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reported that there areeight teamsinterested in acquiring Stone's services.The Jets may be getting close to completing a deal for Stone New York Rangers Hoodies Authentic , according to Hockey Night in Canada insider Elliotte Friedman. The trade for Stone is likely to includea 2019 first-round selection, a conditional second-round pick and two prospects.While Panarin and Stone are the leading names at the trade deadline, there are several others who will also be coveted.Simmonds update and moreWayne Simmonds of the Philadelphia Flyers is another potential game-changer, as he has scored 24 goals or more in a season six times in his career.Simmonds has been discussed as a trade possibility for several weeks, but Philadelphia general manager Chuck Fletcher has been trying to give his team a chance to get back in the playoff race.While the Flyers staged a powerful comeback to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins in overtime Saturday, they are still seven points out of the final Eastern Conference playoff spot.Fletcher has started to engage in trade talks, per Frank Seravalli of TSN. The Bruins are likely to show interest in Simmonds, according toSam Carchidi of Philly.comMarcus Johansson of the New Jersey Devils is creating "traction," according to Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic and TSN.Some of the other key players who have an excellent chance to move at the deadline include Kevin Hayes of the New York Rangers and Michael Raffl of the Philadelphia Flyers.Gustav Nyquist was traded by the Detroit Red Wings to the San Jose Sharks early Monday morning. The Sharks sent a second-round pick in 2019 and a conditional third-round pick in 2020 to Detroit.
