Jake Allen Jersey

  • Mark Stone was considered the best player available as the NHL trade deadline approached Authentic Carl Gunnarsson Jersey , a 26-year-old forward who consistently has 60 points a season.The Vegas Golden Knights made a calculated gamble to acquire him Monday in the boldest move around the league simply because of the steep price paid in their bid to win the Stanley Cup. Vegas gave up 19-year-old defenseman Erik Brannstrom, a prized prospect, a 2020 second-round pick and seldom-used forward Oscar Lindberg.“This type of player doesn’t come available very often,” Golden Knights general manager George McPhee said. “We believe he is one of the best all-around players in the NHL.”Columbus, meanwhile, bolstered depth by adding defenseman Adam McQuaid from the New York Rangers and goaltender Keith Kinkaid from New Jersey after previously picking up forwards Ryan Dzingel and Matt Duchene.“I feel we have a really good team and this gives us an opportunity to compete for the Stanley Cup,” Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said.The Central Division-leading Winnipeg Jets made one big deal, acquiring forward Kevin Hayes, and a series of smaller ones to keep pace with Western Conference contenders such as Pacific Division-leading Calgary, San Jose, Nashville and Vegas.“It’s an exciting time for lots of franchises around the league that were able to add players,” said Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland Colton Parayko Jersey , who traded forward Gustav Nyquist and defenseman Nick Jensen to San Jose and Washington. “Lots of teams added lots of good players, so it’s shaping up for an exciting Stanley Cup playoff.”EASTERN CONFERENCECOLUMBUS BLUE JACKETSColumbus chose not to deal star forward Artemi Panarin and goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky along with their expiring contracts for high picks and promising prospects. The 26-year-old Dzingel is perhaps the most significant addition, putting a player with a career-high 44 points in the lineup.BOSTON BRUINSIn a subtle move for a team with solid playoff positioning, forward Marcus Johansson was acquired from the New Jersey Devils for a second-round pick this year and a fourth-round pick next year. Johansson has 27 points this season and is capable of more, producing a career-high 58 points with Washington two years ago.STANDING PATThe NHL-leading Tampa Bay Lightning stood pat, appearing to be content with a double-digit lead over the rest of the league with a stacked team from front to back. And the Metropolitan Division-leading New York Islanders did not make a trade in the NHL’s only division that has five teams with 70-plus points.WESTERN CONFERENCEVEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTSThe slumping team should get a quick return on its investment in Stone. He has 62 points — two short of his career high this season — and 311 points in 366 career games.“You hope it brings something,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “Obviously the players know who Mark Stone is, they know he’s a great player. One of the top players in the league and he should definitely bring a lot of energy to our room.”It appears to be a move for short- and long-term goals, because Stone said on Canada’s TSN he agreed to a long-term contract extension with the second-year franchise.“We would not have done a rental,” McPhee said. “Too much risk in that.”NASHVILLE PREDATORSNashville got stronger up front, acquiring wingers Mikael Granlund (Minnesota) and Wayne Simmonds (Philadelphia). Granlund, who has 49 points http://www.officialblues.com/authentic-adidas-dmitrij-jaskin-jersey , averaged 68 points the previous two years. If he can do that again, it may be enough to help the Predators outlast the Jets in the division.WINNIPEG JETSHayes was perhaps the second-best player available, averaging 43-plus points over five seasons with the New York Rangers, and it cost a package that included a first-round pick to get him.“You have to be comfortable with the acquisition price,” Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said.Winnipeg advanced in the playoffs last year for the first time since moving from Atlanta in 2011 and knows it needs all the help it to top last year’s run that ended against Vegas in the conference finals. The Jets made six trades on deadline day.CALGARY FLAMESThe Western Conference leaders added only Oscar Fantenberg from the Los Angeles Kings because they don’t need much help.Fantenberg, a defenseman with three points in 46 games this season, does provide insurance on the blue line in case of injuries. Tampa Bay is on a five-game point streak and Colorado is coming off a road trip in which it earned seven of a possible eight points, so one team is about to cool off — even if for one night.The Lightning (5-1-1) had a record-setting 6-3 victory in Chicago on Sunday night while the Avalanche head home after one of their most successful trips. Colorado won the last three contests of the four-game Eastern Conference swing after a shootout loss against the New York Rangers.Its reward is a home matchup against Tampa Bay on Wednesday night. But the way the Avalanche (6-1-2) are playing, nothing is shaking their confidence but they’re not getting too cocky.Article continues below ...“We played some good games on the road,” coach Jared Bednar said after Monday’s 4-1 victory at Philadelphia. “Some of the ones when we were a little bit up and down, our big guys were good, our goaltending was good Youth Jaden Schwartz Jersey , our special teams were good. We are doing enough to win, and I still think we got room for improvement. I think a lot to like, a lot to build on but a lot to like, for sure.”One thing to like is the play of Colorado’s top line. Captain Gabriel Landeskog had nine points (seven goals, two assists) on the road trip, including a hat trick against New Jersey. His linemates, center Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen, have each recorded at least one point in all nine games this season.“When you’re playing with two good players like Mikko and Nate, offensively we’re going to create and it’s going to take care of itself,” Landeskog said after the win over the Flyers. “We’re just trying to move and skate and talk and try to be threats out there, all three of us.”As well as the Avalanche are playing, they haven’t topped what Tampa Bay did against the Blackhawks. The Lightning had 33 shots on goal in the second period Jake Allen Jersey , which set an NHL record for shots in a period since the statistic became an official stat in 1997-98. Tampa Bay finished with a franchise-best 55 shots.“There are so many things you need,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper told The Tampa Bay Times. “It’s why it doesn’t happen that often. Everything has to go your way. The puck has to bounce over somebody’s stick, you have to be in the right spot. It’s really hard to do.”Winning in Colorado has not been hard for Tampa Bay of late. The Lightning have won their last three meetings in Denver and outscored the Avalanche 13-7 in that stretch, and bring the best penalty kill in the NHL into Pepsi Center. Tampa Bay didn’t give up a power-play goal until Sunday, which snapped a streak of 28 straight kills to start the season.“The PK had a (heck) of a run,” goaltender Louis Domingue, who nearly made the save with his glove, told The Tampa Bay Times on Sunday.
