Sebastian Aho and the Carolina Hurricanes Antworten

RALEIGH , N.C. (AP) — got into a groove after Micheal Ferland tangled with Austin Watson.Aho had three goals and an assist to help Carolina beat the Nashville Predators 6-3 on Sunday.The Hurricanes won for the seventh time in eight games. There was no score when Ferland fought Watson 8:19 into the first period.“That set the tone,” Aho said. “We were all fired up after that.”Ferland, who also had two assists, did the dirty work and Aho handled the scoring. With the early start, Ferland figured the team needed a shot of energy.“Being an early game, you’re not really sure how you feel,” Ferland said. “I think it got everyone going on both benches. It was good.”Justin Williams, Saku Maenalanen and Lucas Wallmark also scored for Carolina, which has won five straight at home. Petr Mrazek made 20 saves for his third win in four starts.“That was one of our better 60-minute efforts all year,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “I thought we played as solid as we could.”It was the first hat trick of the season for Aho. The All-Star center has five goals in the past two games, running his team-best total to 21 for the season.He credited linemates Ferland and Teuvo Teravainen for his recent surge.“They’ve been feeding me Authentic Alex Smith Jersey ,” Aho said.Nashville, which had earned at least a point in seven straight games, got two goals from Filip Forsberg and another from Colton Sissons, but goaltender Pekka Rinne was chased in the second period.Carolina had an advantage on special teams with two power-play goals. The Predators got a short-handed goal but went 0 for 5 on the power play.Aho gave the Hurricanes a 1-0 lead with a breakaway goal 15:44 into the first period. Carolina got a break when the puck bounced off the skate off a Nashville player in the Hurricanes’ zone and defenseman Roman Josi fell down, leaving the ice open in front of Aho.“We’re finally getting bounces,” Ferland said. “We haven’t changed the way we play.”Maenalanen made it 2-0 with a one-timer from the slot at 18:15 off a nice feed from Justin Faulk.The Predators cut Carolina’s lead to 2-1 with Sissons’ goal 2:48 into the second period, but the Hurricanes responded with three straight scores.Aho got a beautiful backhanded pass by Ferland and scored a power-play goal at 3:08. Wallmark caught Nashville in a line change 8:35 into the second, and Williams chased Rinne with a power-play goal at 10:11.Forsberg scored the next two goals. He had a short-handed tally in the second and then scored again 13:33 into the third to cut Carolina’s lead to 5-3.NOTES: It was Aho’s second career hat trick. … Williams, in his 18th NHL season, matched his career-best scoring streak with a goal in five straight games. … Left wing Phillip Di Giuseppe played 21 games with Carolina this season. He was claimed on waivers by the Predators on Jan. 1 and played his third game with Nashville on Sunday. … The Hurricanes improved to 7-0-2 in their black alternate jerseys this season.UP NEXTPredators: Host Washington on Tuesday nightHurricanes: Visit the New York Rangers on Tuesday night. WINNIPEG, Manitoba — With the way the Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers have been playing lately Alex Smith Jersey Elite , there’s a very good chance the 1980s could break out at Bell MTS Place Thursday night.All that will be missing will be the classic battles between Wayne Gretzky and Dale Hawerchuk.The Jets have won six of their last seven games, including a 6-3 triumph over the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday, a game in which they took a 4-0 lead, let up on the gas temporarily and then finished off the win with an empty-net marker. They have scored 13 goals in the past two games, including none from sniper Patrik Laine.Article continues below ...At one point late in the first period, the Jets led the Blackhawks 14-0 in shots.The Oilers, meanwhile, come to town having won seven of their last eight games, including an impressive 6-4 road victory over the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday. They have also been lighting the lamp in ’80s fashion of late, including seven times in a victory over Minnesota last week.Perhaps most importantly, they are an impressive 8-2-1 since Ken Hitchcock assumed the reins behind the bench last month from Todd McLellan.The 66-year-old Hitchcock , who was coaxed out of retirement by the Oilers, is happy with his team’s turnaround — they’re in the thick of the Western Conference’s wild-card race just a couple of weeks after sitting near the cellar of the Pacific Division — but he’s still not satisfied. “We’re going to need more contributions from more people if we expect to be a playoff team,” he said following Tuesday’s game. “We’re going to push in that direction.”And the Jets are going to push back, particularly when other teams end up in the penalty box.They have struck gold six times in the last two games with the man advantage, improving their efficiency to 30.3 percent, and reestablishing it as the top power play in the league. In fact, defenseman Dustin Byfuglien’s power-play marker in the first period came just five seconds into the man advantage, the fourth time this season the Jets have needed less than nine seconds to make their opponents pay.The center of the No. 1 unit, Mark Scheifele, said he has every intention of keeping the good times rolling.“We know we have a good power play. It’s just a matter of executing, and lately Authentic Matt Ioannidis Jersey , we’ve been executing. We just have to keep focusing on those fine details,” he said in a postgame scrum.Jets head coach Paul Maurice didn’t think his team sat back as the Blackhawks narrowed the deficit on Tuesday, briefly trimming the lead to 4-3 before the Jets scored one of their power-play markers.“I’m not expecting it to be 12-0 by the end of the game,” he said. “When you have the number of Stanley Cup rings that they have in that room, they’re going to come out and push hard.“When it’s 4-3, anything can happen. Every single shot that goes to the net either way. But (Blackhawks goalie) Cam Ward made two or three great saves at the end of the second period and a couple more. And we missed the net on a bunch. I didn’t feel the game changed nearly as much as it felt on the shot clock or the scoreboard.”
