Evgeny Kuznetsov is scoring

#1
WASHINGTON (AP) — Brian Gibbons Jersey Womens , the Washington Capitals are winning and it feels like the playoffs in February.Kuznetsov continued his hot streak with two goals and two assists, leading the Washington Capitals to a 6-4 victory over the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night. The leading scorer in last year’s playoffs has six goals and six assists in six games since the All-Star break, and the defending Stanley Cup champions went 4-1-1 on their longest homestand of the season.Kuznetsov had just 10 points in his previous 18 games before getting on this roll.“Even if things not going well, you have to work and not just hard work, you have to smart work and you just have to wait for your chance,” Kuznetsov said. “When chances come up, you just have to execute.”Kuznetsov isn’t the only one executing right now. Alex Ovechkin scored his NHL-leading 38th goal and had two assists and Brett Connolly, Christian Djoos and Jakub Vrana scored for the Capitals, who had their lines from the Cup Final put back together and produced all over the lineup.“We played together before Jaroslav Halak Jersey Womens , so we have some chemistry,” said Vrana, who scored his 17th goal. “It doesn’t really matter who you play with. There is always some chemistry between each other here. Today we play like playoffs last year and important win.”The Capitals got the win and overcame a spate of three hooking penalties in 7:19 in the first period. They’re tied for first in the league with 201 minor penalties — a problem that they hope to fix as they go on the road for the next six.Players were happy leaving on a jet plane because of an offensive outburst and 29 saves from backup goaltender Pheonix Copley, who was making his second start in three games.It was a rougher night for Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, who allowed six goals on 31 shots behind some uneven defense.“That team scores a lot of goals and they have a deadly power play,” said Kings forward Austin Wagner, who scored twice. “We’ve got to try to stay off it next game, but we have to focus on the next game and take it into the next one.”Tyler Toffoli and Oscar Fantenberg also scored for Los Angeles, which went 3-2-1 on its six-game trip and remains eight points out of the final playoff spot in an unusually tight Western Conference race with many teams to pass.“The challenging part probably isn’t the points Steven Kampfer Jersey Womens , it’s the leapfrogging teams because everyone’s playing each other,” captain Dustin Brown said. “It’s going to come down to a math problem. If we perform well, it still might just come down to a math problem.”NOTES: Djoos’ goal was his first in 62 games dating to Dec. 30, 2017. He missed 24 games with compartment syndrome in his left leg before returning Saturday. … Connolly has scored four goals in four games. … The Kings traded C Nate Thompson and a 2019 fifth-round pick to the Montreal Canadiens for a 2019 fourth-round pick. … Wagner was put in the lineup only after the Thompson trade and registered his first career multi-goal game. … Kings C Jeff Carter missed his third consecutive game with a lower-body injury. … Kings F Trevor Lewis played for the first time since Nov. 13 after returning from a lower-body injury.UP NEXTKings: Return home to face the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday.Capitals: Begin a season-high six-game trip Tuesday at the Columbus Blue Jackets. DENVER (AP) — Eric Staal and the Minnesota Wild have their timing down. Too bad they can’t pass on the down time.Staal had two goals, including the tiebreaker on a second-period power play, Devan Dubnyk made 20 saves and the Wild rolled into the All-Star break by beating the slumping Colorado Avalanche 5-2 on Wednesday night.“You certainly wish you could keep playing if they’re going to play like that,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. “It was really fun to watch.”Tune in again on Feb. 1 for Wild hockey.“We’re going to use it to our advantage and be able to recharge,” said Charlie Coyle, who had a goal and an assist. “Down the road Laurent Brossoit Jersey Womens , we’re going to have more juice in the tank.”For the Avalanche, the break couldn’t come at a better time as they finished 3-7 in January and lost ground in the Central Division chase.Tune in again on Feb. 2 for Avalanche hockey.“Rewind and get your mind off of things if that’s what you want to do,” Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog said. “Study the game and make sure you come back hungry, because we’re going to need it.”Jared Spurgeon and Ryan Suter also scored for the Wild, who earned their fourth win in five games to remain in the thick of the playoff picture. Staal and Suter had goals on separate 5-on-3 power plays.Staal had another big performance, giving him three goals and two assists over his last two games.“He’s reminding me of this time last year, when he started to go and find his legs,” Boudreau said. “We’re going to need it. Every team needs the big boys to play. When the big boys play well, we can play with anybody.”Carl Soderberg and Tyson Barrie scored for the Avalanche. Philipp Grubauer stopped 23 shots as he got the start over Semyon Varlamov with Colorado searching for consistency in net.“I don’t think he had a chance on any of those goals Timothy Liljegren Jersey Womens ,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. “It’s not a goaltending loss.“I’m still confident in our team, but nights like this when we don’t play in a mature team game, then it bothers me because I know we’re capable of it.”Dubnyk flashed his All-Star form to improve to 18-12-1 all-time against Colorado. That’s his most wins versus one opponent.Staal broke a second-period tie during a two-man advantage — and another missing a stick. On the play, Colorado forward Matt Calvert broke his stick and couldn’t cover Staal down low. Staal knocked in a pinpoint pass from Mikael Granlund through the middle.“Classic Granlund,” Coyle said of the pass. “That’s a pretty goal.”With 22.1 seconds remaining in the middle period, Coyle made it a 4-2 advantage. That was more than enough for Dubnyk, an All-Star for a third time. Still, Suter tallied another in the third with a pair of Colorado players in the penalty box.The Avalanche took a one-goal lead on two occasions in the first period, only to be answered in short time. After Soderberg scored Antoine Roussel Jersey Womens , Staal tied it up 1:08 later. And after Barrie gave Colorado a 2-1 advantage, Spurgeon soon knotted it back up with a liner over Grubauer’s glove.Before the game, Colorado honored All-Stars Mikko Rantanen, MacKinnon and Landeskog with a tribute. The linemates have combined for 199 points this season, including MacKinnon and Rantanen picking up assists on Barrie’s goal.Minnesota and Colorado are now idle for the rest of the month due to the All-Star break and the bye week.“Try and carry the momentum when we get back,” Staal said. “But we’re definitely going to enjoy the break.”NOTES: Wild C Eric Fehr (lower body) could be back after the break. He’s missed nine games. … Wearing No. 77, D Brad Hunt was in the lineup after being acquired by the Wild in a deal with Vegas on Monday. Hunt played college hockey at Bemidji State in Minnesota and his wife is from the state. “We have a baby on the way. She’s excited for him to be born in Minnesota,” Hunt said. … Avs D Erik Johnson (head) missed a second straight game.UP NEXTWild: Off until Feb. 1 when they play in Dallas.Avalanche: On hiatus until Feb. 2 when they host Vancouver. Barrie said for the break he’s going to “find a beach somewhere and relax.”
