Game 29 Live Blog: Rangers beat Devils 5-2

Game 29 Live Blog: Rangers beat Devils 5-2
game-29-live-blog-rangers-beat-devils-5-2

There will be a different look to the Devils’ lineup when they face the Rangers tonight at Madison Square Garden (Faceoff: 7 p.m.; Television: MSG Plus, MSG 2; Radio: WFAN-101.9FM/660AM, WEPN-98.7FM, digital One Jersey Network).

Pavel Zacha, 20,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-nikita-kucherov-jersey]adidas Nikita Kucherov jersey[/url], is back in the lineup after being a healthy scratch the last three games and will center Marcus Johansson and Stefan Noesen on the second line.

Travis Zajac drops to between Miles Wood and Brian Gibbons and Blake Coleman, who scored to make it 3-3 off Gibbons’ feed with 19.9 seconds left in Friday night’s 5-3 loss to the visiting Blue Jackets, slides to Brian Boyle’s left wing along with Jimmy Hayes.

” said coach John Hynes of the 32-year-old veteran,“I don’t think Drew has played badly, we want to stay a very competitive team and in order to do that,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-auston-matthews-jersey]adidas Auston Matthews jersey[/url], who has five goals and three assists in 25 games and has gone 13 games since his last goal and 11 games since his last point. “We just need more. We need more from certain guys. As we’ve always said, guys have to be able to earn their ice time and there’s no guarantee everyone stays in the lineup.”

 making a habit of Saturday night starts,Keith Kinkaid, who made 36 saves in Friday night’s 4-2 loss at Washington, is in net for the Devils while Henrik Lundqvist, will be back in net for the Rangers.

Devils' Ben Lovejoy first active NHL player to pledge to donate brain for CTE research

The Rangers (15-11-2) had won six of their previous seven and are 11-5-2 at the Garden and have won nine of their last 10 on home ice.

” Hynes said of the Rangers. “I thought when we played the last time they were fantastic. Kinkaid kept us in the game in the first period. They didn’t get some bounces. They’ve always been a very good team. They’re playing some really good hockey right now.”,“I think the difference is their record

1. Will the Devils get a chance to show they learned their lesson from Friday night? The Devils first 15 minutes against the Blue Jackets was nearly picture perfect in terms of how they dictated the pace of the game, competed to win nearly every puck battle and dominated the wall play. And then there was very little pushback once the Blue Jackets found their game late in the first period and into the second period. “Fragile,” was how Brian Boyle described the Devils in terms of their response, especially once the Blue Jackets scored early in the second period.

Obviously, then, the first trick is for the Devils to get off to a good start in this game. Then we can see how the respond to the inevitable push from the opponent.

” Hynes said. “I think that’s the biggest thing. It was a real short conversation with the team.”,“Don’t drift

2. Which team can play faster? The Devils have developed a reputation so far this season as one of the NHL’s fastest clubs but the Rangers certainly have the players to match that speed with Chris Kreider, Pavel Buchnevich, Michael Grabner and Mats Zuccarello.

 it’s the team that can be the most efficient with its puck possession within that framework of playing a fast game.,So it won’t necessarily be the fastest team that wins

 not good in the second period. The Rangers do have the capability of pinning teams back with a  strong forecheck and cycle and the Devils have to make sure they take care of the puck around their crease and don’t get caught.,3. Puck management: Which brings us to this category. The Devils were good in the first period

 the Rangers have also allowed a goal on the team’s second shot once and on the third shot three times.,4. That first shot. The Capitals’ Jay Beagle scored on the first shot on Henrik Lundqvist on Friday night and that marked the fourth time this season the Rangers have allowed a goal on the first shot they’ve given up. In addition

Meanwhile, Kinkaid has had much better results lately. In each of his last three starts, he’s allowed a goal in the first minute of play.

A week ago, in a 5-0 loss at Arizona, the Coyotes took a 1-0 lead on defenseman Jason Demers beat Kinkaid through a screen just 34 seconds into the game. It was also 34 seconds into the game that David Booth gave the Red Wings a 1-0 lead also at the 34-second mark of the Devils 4-3 overtime win on Nov. 25. In a 7-5 win at Chicago on Nov. 12, Kinkaid gave up a goal to Artem Anisimov 41 seconds into the first period, one of the four goals the Blackhawks scored over the opening 20 minutes, though Kinkaid was not pulled.

 the Devils,5. The power plays: Both teams are struggling on the power play, because they are “gripping their sticks” a little too tightly and the Rangers because they are missing top-line center Mika Zibanejad, as Taylor Hall suggested after Friday’s loss, who remains out with a concussion.

First period: Devils confirm Santini is a healthy scratch. Hynes did not go over that when asked about lineup changes during his pre-game presser. Kinkaid stops first shot he faces, albeit a 99-foot tip from Kevin Hayes nine seconds in. Second shot, Rangers up on shots 4-3. So both goalies starting OK. Shots now 5-5 at 6:03. Both teams getting to their speed game and checking pretty hard. Good start. And good start over. Butcher turns the puck over as he tries to get the puck out of the zone and Nieves to Carey to Vesey in the lower right faceoff circle leads to Vesey beating Kinkaid over his blocker to the far post for a 1-0 lead at 6:14. But Kinkaid keeps it a one-goal deficit as he robs Nash on a breakaway with his glove at 6:37. The Rangers, at least for the first 20. Rangers up on shots 13-7. , Nash’s wrister 25 seconds in is more legit. Zacha gets fed on his first shift coming up the left but shoots wide. Noesen with nifty backhanded feed. At 2:36, though, are fairly relentless with the pressure they are applying, particularly against the Greene-Severson pairing, which has trouble getting the puck out of the zone. At 9:19, with the Rangers up on shots 11-5, Bratt-Hischier-Wood come out for the Devils power play. Lundqvist makes a nice save on Butcher’s slap shot from the top of the right circle and the Rangers kill off Skjei’s penalty. Icing call on the Rangers and Rangers coach Alain Vigneault very unhappy, in an animated discussion with linesman Steve Miller. Puck went over the line inches wide of the Devils' crease and with Greene in pursuit at 13:30. Kinkaid then with a quick glove save on Desharnais’ blast from the left circle at 13:59. As period winds down, Wood hooks Fast for the game’s first power play. Active power play for the Rangers as Desharnais lines one up from the right for a one-timer that doesn’t get through and then Kinkaid is sharp to smother Shattenkirk’s blue-slap slap shot. But the final 49 seconds of the power play are negated when Skjei trips Coleman trying to come out of the defensive zone at 10:31. Butcher-Hall, the impression is that the Devils aren’t playing poorly, it’s just that the Rangers are better

 Wood, with speed, natch, comes up the right and gets off a backhander near the crease that Lundqvist makes a sprawling save on. Shattenkirk is there on defense and, showing that stat doesn’t necessarily portend what’s really going on. , maybe gets his stick between Wood’s skates but the two start shoving behind the crease and then Wood starts swinging, wide open low in the slot, though he doesn’t drop his gloves. Wood winds up with a four-minute double minor for roughing while Shattenkirk gets two minutes for roughing. Noesen joins Wood in the box to serve the penalty. Shots up to 16-8 for the Rangers at 4:33 after Kinkaid leaps out to knock down and smother Kevin Hayes shot from low in the right circle. The Devils having trouble keeping up with the Rangers pressure and Hall hooks Buchnevich,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-jonathan-drouin-jersey]adidas Jonathan Drouin jersey[/url], who darts to his left to create a shot in the slot at 4:57. Gibbons nearly ties the game with a shorthanded goal as his shot from the left gets through Lundqvist. But Zuccarello swipes the puck out of the blue paint just before it rolls across the line. The Devils keep it in and Lundqvist turns aside Bratt’s blast. A rush later and Lundqvist uses his shoulder to knock aside Butcher’s shot from the left circle. At 8:40, the Rangers are up on shots 18-14. Devils coming oh so close. Puck gets to the crease with Lundqvist down and Coleman gets a stick down but the puck goes just wide of th left post. As so often happens when one team cannot push across a goal despite so many close calls, the other team scores. So the Rangers make it 2-0 at 9:42 as Fast, Johansson was testing himself on the ice. He’s been in pain since being hit in the leg with a shot. But Johansson comes out for the power play and his slap shot from the right circle hits the far post at 15:10. And, with a quick wrister to beat Kinkaid. Severson brings the Devils within 2-1 at 13:45 with a laser beam from the right circle that goes just under the crossbar and inside the far post. Coleman and Noesen get the assists. The Devils head to the power play at 14:01 as Smith backhands the puck over the glass for a delay of game. During the stoppage, of course,[url=http://www.lightningofficialhockey.com/adidas-victor-hedman-jersey]adidas Victor Hedman jersey[/url], the Rangers go up 3-1 as,[url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-daniel-sedin-jersey]adidas Daniel Sedin jersey[/url], just as Smith exits the box,Second period: Zacha’s first shift of the second comes with Johansson and Hayes on the right instead of Noesen. At 2:45, Zuccarello strips Severson of the puck at the Devils’ blue line and goes in to beat Kinkaid at 16:03. Devils being outshot 25-16 and this game should be a good barometer for them in terms of how tough it will be to stay in the Metropolitan Division race. Also, the Devils have won 25 of 37 faceoffs (68 percent), again

 go on the power play as Kreider cross checks Wood at 2:04 to clear him from the net. Hayes leads Nash on a two on one and Kinkaid makes another spectacular save,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-james-van-riemsdyk-jersey]adidas James Van Riemsdyk jersey[/url],Third period: Kinkaid opens with a strong saves on Nash and Smith and the Devils getting pressure at the crease, with the Rangers outskating the Devils up ice, sliding to his left to rob Nash. The Rangers kill off the penalty. Zuccarello, beats Kinkaid from the right for a 4-1 lead at 6:21. But the Devils get that right back as Zacha sets up Wood at the right crease to cut the lead to 4-2 at 6:34. Butcher’s secondary assist is his 17th assist of the season. Kevin Hayes makes it 5-2 off a loose puck at 11:59. The Devils are outshot 39-28  and they’ve now lost consecutive games in regulation for the first time this season and allowed five goals for the third time in four games.

 the Devils were “soft” and “loose” in the agitated words of coach John Hynes.,This time

And the Rangers handed them a second straight hard-knock lesson how the Devils will have to elevate their play to remain in the midst of the Metropolitan Division race.

“You play soft and you play loose, you have no chance to win,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-auston-matthews-jersey]Authentic Auston Matthews jersey[/url],” Hynes said. “We were soft all over the ice. Too many soft individuals. We played a loose game. That’s what happens. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Metropolitan Division. We went into Arizona – Arizona is not in the Metropolitan Division – we played soft, we played loose, we got beat [5-0 on Dec. 2]. We played soft, we played loose tonight. We got beat bad. It’s the league.”

 5-2,The Rangers skated and forechecked harder and took advantage of too many turnovers as the Devils lost, they had fallen out of first place in the division with a 5-3 loss to the visiting Blue Jackets, on Saturday night at Madison Square Garden. The night before, after which veteran center Brian Boyle said the team had been “fragile” after building a two-goal lead.

“I don’t think we gave ourselves a chance at all,” said goalie Keith Kinkaid, who made 34 saves, several of them spectacular ones. “You look at the turnovers and the chances we gave up. And their penalty kill outworked our power play. It was frustrating.

” Kinkaid added. “We’ve got to figure it out.”,“Hopefully it’s a wake-up call

The Devils (16-9-4) started this stretch of Metropolitan Division games, their first since Oct. 14, with a 4-1 win at Columbus on Tuesday night. But now they’ve allowed five goals in three of their last four games and have lost consecutive games in regulation for the first time this season.

Mats Zuccarello scored twice for the Rangers (16-11-2) and also made a key defensive play to prevent a goal as Henrik Lundqvist stopped 26 shots. The Rangers, continuing to rebound from a 3-7-2 start, have won seven of their last nine – they lost 4-2 at Washington on Friday night – and 10 of their last 11 home games.

The Devils were 0 for 3 on the power play with four shots and are now 0 for 11 over their last four games.

” Hynes said. “It’s too soft and it’s too loose.”,[url=http://www.mapleleafshockeyshop.com/adidas-james-van-riemsdyk-jersey]Authentic James Van Riemsdyk jersey[/url],“The power play is like the rest of our game

Jimmy Vesey scored the Rangers first goal at 6:14 of the first period after Boo Nieves created a turnover. Jesper Fast got in between Andy Greene and Severson to find space in the slot and make it 2-0 at 9:42 of the third period. Kevin Hayes pounced on a loose puck to cap the scoring at 11:59 of the third period.

It was the Sharks’ first ever victory after they had trailed by three after one period.

 probably,“Pretty good game for the fans, great finish.”, huh?” Burns said. “That’s hockey There’s just a lot of swings. That game had everything in it. A tough start

The Sharks could have saved themselves a lot of heartache, by simply starting the game on time as they trailed Carolina 3-0 after the first period and 4-1 with five minutes to go in the second with Melker Karlsson’s shorthanded marker accounting for San Jose’s only goal., though

Joe Thornton began the comeback as his power play goal with 2:09 to in the second period cut Carolina’s lead to 4-2. Logan Couture followed that with a power play goal that cut the Hurricanes lead to one with 11:29 to go in regulation.

Barclay Goodrow completed the comeback as he scored shorthanded on a breakaway with 8:04 to go in the third to tie the game 4-4.

” Pavelski said of the Hurricanes,“It’s a team that’s found ways to lose at times, they’re going to be thinking. It just gave us a little confidence.”, who had lost three of four coming into Thursday. “So if we could come out and get one early

 and it did.”,Thornton said Sharks coach Pete DeBoer “came in and said if we could try and get one in the first 10 (minutes of the third) if would definitely change the momentum of the game

 considering the Sharks had a 2-8-1 record this season when they trailed a game going into the third period,Still, few could have seen this comeback on the horizon., [url=http://www.canuckshockeyshop.com/adidas-daniel-sedin-jersey]Authentic Daniel Sedin jersey[/url], not to mention their season-long offensive struggles

” Pavelski said. “It was going to get really ugly or we were going to show a little fight. We get that one shorty,“Each goal, it was kind of teetering as to which way it was going to go, we understood we needed to give a little more.”, and then they score. (Thornton) gets another one. Just kind of went back and forth and we came out in the third

 the Sharks allowed Carolina to score three goals on its first six shots in the first period.,Coming off a road trip in which they allowed nine goals in their last two games

 as the Hurricanes scored on two of their next three shots on net to take a 3-0 lead at the 14:14 mark of the first period.,Things didn’t get any better for the Sharks from there

” Sharks defenseman Justin Braun said. “But we’ll take a look at that and hopefully fix it going forward.”,“The breakouts weren’t very good. We were loose in the d-zone
