MONTREAL (AP) — Montreal Canadiens captain Shea Weber says he really missed that winning feeling.In his second game back from injury Winnipeg Jets Hoodies Authentic , Weber and Artturi Lehkonen each scored twice and the Canadiens snapped a five-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the New York Rangers on Saturday night.The 33-year-old defenseman missed 73 games following surgeries on his right knee and left foot. He had an assist in a losing effort in his first game back on Thursday.“The biggest thing is winning,” said Weber, who gave the Canadiens a 2-0 lead after one period. “If you help out by scoring goals, or stopping goals, whichever way it is, it’s coming in here after getting two points that I definitely miss the most.”Tomas Tatar also scored for the Canadiens, who won for the first time at home since Nov. 10. Carey Price stopped 20 shots.Jimmy Vesey and Ryan Strome scored for the Rangers, losers in four of their last five games. Backup goalie Alexandar Georgiev made 37 saves on 42 shots.

He was playing just his second game since returning from an injury.Weber scored 3:53 into the game, sending a one-timer from the blue line past Georgiev. It was Weber’s first goal since Dec. 5, 2017.“The guys on the bench were all so happy when he scored his first goal,” said Canadiens head coach Claude Julien. “He’s earned that respect from his teammates, from us, just by the way he handles himself. Everyone is extremely happy for him tonight.

Weber went high to the glove side and scored with eight seconds remaining in the first period.“That was a crusher,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “To give that goal up in the fashion that we did really was a tough pill to swallow and tough to overcome. You know we’re not in a great mindset right now, and to come in the second period down 2-0 playing the way we did the last seven or eight minutes and give up a goal of that fashion really set us back.”Lehkonen doubled Montreal’s lead — and his goal tally for the season — with two quick scores early in the second.The Canadiens went up 3-0 when Lehkonen beat Georgiev with a wrist shot on a 2-on-1 at 2:04.

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — Elias Pettersson had one thought when he hit the ice before his first NHL game — stay upright.The 19-year-old Vancouver Canucks‘ center said he knew about the league’s tradition of initiating rookies with a solo skate during warm-ups, but hoped his teammates might make an exception.“Maybe I thought they would forget it because it was lonely, not that fun,” he said. “My only focus was not to fall.”Not only did Pettersson stay on his feet Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys , he scored his first NHL goal on his first shot and also had an assist in the Canucks’ 5-2 win over the Calgary Flames on Wednesday night.Nikolay Goldobin, Brendan Leipsic, Jake Virtanen and Tyler Motte also scored for Vancouver.

Petterson kept the puck and fired a wrist shot into the top of the net.The goal brought chants of “Petter-sson” from the crowd.“Everyone on the team congratulated me, including the coaches. And then I didn’t expect a standing ovation from the crowd. So that was amazing,” said Pettersson, whose parents were among those in attendance.Teammate Eric Gudbranson said Pettersson, who led the Swedish hockey league in scoring last season with 56 poi8nts in 44 games, was ‘an absolute stud’ in his NHL debut.“One of the most impressive things about him is how responsible he is and how competitive he is,” Gudbranson said. “If he turns the puck over, he’s right back on it and he takes it away from you. He doesn’t give up anything. He plays the game incredibly well.”Matthew Tkachuk and Sean Monahan had goals for the Flames, and Mike Smith finished with 18 saves.Even Smith had kind words for Pettersson.“He made a great shot, he put right in the top corner. I got a piece of it with the glove http://www.officialknightsproshop.com , but yeah I have heard quite a bit about this young kid and he let her go and hit the perfect spot there,” Smith said.Pettersson then got an assist on Goldobin’s goal in the third period. Pettersson got the puck in front of the net and passed it off to his teammate, who tipped it in at the side to make it 2-0 at 1:52.Nearly 30 seconds later, Leipsic sneaked a puck into the same spot to put the Canucks up 3-0.Tkachuk then caught Markstrom too far out of the net and buried the puck to put the Flames on the scoreboard at 3:08. Defenseman Noah Hanifin got a secondary assist on the play for his first point with Calgary after being acquired from Carolina during the summer.Virtanen responded by getting a breakaway and sliding the puck in past Smith as he fell to the ice to make it 4-1 at 5:46.Monahan pulled the Flames within two again as he ended a battle outside the Vancouver crease with a wrist shot that slipped through Markstrom’s legs and into the net at 8:08.“Not enough pace, and not enough execution on it and not enough desperation,” Flames coach Bill Peters said. “At one point, I think through 40 (minutes) we were 1 for 7 on faceoffs on the power play, so it’s an important part of the game.”Vancouver’s Motte got a pass from Markus Granlund and put a long shot into the empty net with 47 seconds to go to cap the scoring.NOTES: Vancouver held Calgary scoreless on seven power plays. … Gudbranson spent nine minutes in the box, including a five-minute penalty he earned after dropping the gloves with Calgary’s Travis Hamonic midway through the first period. … Hamonic, who also received a five-minute major for his fight with Gudbranson, left the game but later returned wearing a full-face maskUP NEXTCalgary: Host Vancouver in the Flames’ home opener on Saturday.Canucks: At Calgary on Saturday night to open a six-game trip.
