NASHVILLE Womens Alex Goligoski Jersey , Tenn. (AP) — The Nashville Predators took care of several issues Tuesday night at the expense of the Arizona Coyotes.None meant more than ending their power-play woes, if only for one night.Filip Forsberg ended an 0-for-34 power-play drought as part of Nashville’s three-goal second period, and the Predators beat the Coyotes 5-2 Tuesday night to snap a three-game skid at home.“We’ve been having a lot of good looks lately, but at the end of the day, it’s about scoring goals and we were fortunate to do that tonight,” Forsberg said. “I think we played well enough to have a couple more on the power play as well, but we will take one for tonight.”Roman Josi scored an empty-net goal with 2:50 left and had two assists, Ryan Ellis had a goal and an assist and Craig Smith and Calle Jarnkrok each had goals.Pekka Rinne made 24 saves as Nashville avoided being swept by Arizona this season, though the Coyotes did take the series 2-1.The Predators hadn’t scored on the man advantage since Jan. 9 in a win at Chicago and not at home since a loss to the Rangers on Dec. 29. They went 1 for 5 against Arizona.“We had a lot of looks and a lot of opportunities,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “I thought that there could have been more than one . a couple of miscues on the shot, a couple of big saves, a couple couldn’t find their way in. Fil made a terrific shot coming in on his.”Vinnie Hinostroza and Derek Stepan scored for Arizona Christian Dvorak Jersey , which finished a six-game swing with a fourth straight loss.The Coyotes played their second game in as many nights without eight regulars due to injuries, and Calvin Pickard started in his 100th career NHL game with goalie Darcy Kuemper day-to-day with an upper body injury and made 42 saves.(He) was by far our best player tonight and kept us in and gave us a chance,” Stepan said. “That’s all you ask from your goaltender. Unfortunately, we just didn’t have the extra magic that we needed.”These teams hadn’t met since the end of November, and Nashville managed only a goal in the two losses to Arizona.The Coyotes’ luck appeared to continue as Pickard made a stop on Forsberg late in the first period with the puck bouncing off his head and over the net, then the Coyotes went the other way with Hinostroza beating Rinne with a wrister from the slot at 16:59.Arizona had a 5-on-3 for 41 seconds in the first minute of the second period after Nashville captain Roman Josi cleared the puck over the glass, hitting a child behind the penalty box. The child walked out on his own with his family a few minutes later, and Nashville killed the penalties. Then Smith scored his 15th goal this season and first in a month on a wrister off a rebound at 2:58, tying it up for Nashville.“The 5-on-3 has actually killed us the last couple of games,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said.The Predators, who came in with a lengthy scoring drought with the man advantage, failed to convert on their first two power plays to extend the skid to 0 of 34. Hinostroza went to the box for holding Predators forward Kevin Fiala http://www.officialcoyotes.com/authentic-adidas-clayton-keller-jersey , and Nashville finally converted. Josi found Forsberg, whose wrister from the top of the right circle beat Pickard’s glove at 7:45 for a 2-1 lead against what had been the NHL’s stingiest on the penalty kill.Then Ellis made it 3-1 at 13:37 of the period off a rebound as Nashville outshot the Coyotes 19-6 in the second.NOTES: Nashville improved to 9-16-3 when allowing the first goal this season and 6-12-2 when trailing after one.

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Even though they got back on the winning track, the Columbus Blue Jackets have a lot to figure out if they want to make the playoffs.Cam Atkinson and Artemi Panarin scored in a shootout and Sergei Bobrovsky stopped both New Jersey attempts as the Blue Jackets posted a 2-1 win over the Devils on Tuesday night in a game in which they were outplayed.“Other than our first couple shifts of the game, they absolutely dictated the pace of the game,” Atkinson said after Columbus snapped a two-game losing streak. “We got out-battled and lost all the 50-50s and it’s unacceptable and obviously without Bob, they would have had a lot more goals. We’re lucky to come away with two points, let alone one.”The Blue Jackets made big moves at the trade deadline, acquiring Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel and Adam McQuaid, but the team now built to compete for the Stanley Cup has not looked good.“Very important points but certainly some struggles Youth Derek Stepan Jersey ,” said coach John Tortorella, whose team has been sliding in and out of playoff position. “No matter what it looks like or no matter what the reason is, we’ve been inconsistent and we just got to go each day at a time and find a way to get better.”Atkinson also scored the Columbus goal in regulation. Bobrovsky had 29 saves as the Blue Jackets swept their four-game season series with New Jersey.Travis Zajac scored for New Jersey in regulation and Cory Schneider had 17 saves as the Devils lost their fourth in a row.“Overall with the amount of firepower they have I thought we did a tremendous job defensively, making them work,” Schneider said. “Offensively, I thought we had a couple of chances to get the go-ahead goal and just missed or Bobrovsky made a big save. Not good enough to get a win, but you know, that’s kind of how it goes.”After Bobrovsky stopped Blake Coleman’s attempt with his shoulder, Atkinson scored on a backhander.Schneider said Atkinson’s top move is a forehand shot.“Every goalie knows my tendencies and went with my B and it worked,” Atkinson said.Bobrovsky poke-checked the puck away from Drew Stafford on the Devils’ next try, and Panarin ended the game by slipping one between Schneider’s pads.The Devils had two great chances to take the lead late in the third period on a power play. Bobrovsky stopped a tip by Nick Lappin and Michael McLeod hit the post in a bid for his first NHL goal.The Devils had the better scoring chances in the first two periods and they finally capitalized with three minutes left in the second period.Coleman, who had not had a point in 13 games Womens Jason Demers Jersey , set up the goal by carrying the puck into the Columbus end and slamming on the brakes. He faked a shot and sent a cross-ice pass that Zajac put into an open net.“Like I said, we are not scoring as much as we need to but we are a really hard team to play against right now,” Coleman said. “Our forecheck and our effort is very obvious. A lot of guys are starting to show they can play in this league.”Atkinson had given the Blue Jackets the lead less than a minute after the opening faceoff with the help of a fluky bounce off the end boards. Defenseman David Savard took a shot from the left point that hit the boards and came out the other side to a wide-open Atkinson for his career-high 36th goal.The Devils’ injuries continued to mount. Forward Jesper Bratt left the game early in the second period after being hit in the leg by a shot. Nico Hischier, the No. 1 pick in the 2017 draft, was hurt in Boston on Saturday and missed his first game since Nov. 18 with an upper-body injury.Devils coach John Hynes had no update on Bratt’s injury after the game.NOTES: Columbus made one lineup change, scratching C Lukas Sedlak and dressing F Markus Hannikainen. … The Devils activated F Stefan Noesen off injured reserve.
