For all the good things the Nashville Predators did last season to win the Presidents’ Trophy Jarvis Landry Jersey Elite , there was one nagging problem, which they’ve yet to solve in the first three games of the 2018-19 season.The Predators can’t stay out of the penalty box, and it came back to bite them Tuesday night in a 3-0 loss to Calgary that spoiled their home opener. Continued penalty issues could spell doom on Thursday night when they host the Winnipeg Jets in the teams’ first meeting since a riveting Western Conference semifinal last spring.After playing a reasonably clean game with just three minors and one shorthanded situation in the season opener on Oct. 4 at the New York Rangers, Nashville (2-1-0) drew five minors and had to kill off four power plays in a 4-3 win Saturday night at the New York Islanders.Article continues below ...The Predators then took three minors in the first 25 minutes Tuesday night, and the Flames converted two of those into goals to set the tone. Forced into chase mode the rest of the way, Nashville couldn’t solve up-and-down goalie Mike Smith, who was on the up side of a 43-save shutout.“We did good things, we just couldn’t find a way to score and that was definitely frustrating,” Predators center Ryan Johansen said. “We wanted to get the building involved and we were trying, but tonight wasn’t our night.”Nor was it Nashville’s night the last time it saw Winnipeg http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/myles-garrett-jersey , which was on May 10 in Game 7 of a entertaining, back-and-forth series between the league’s two best regular-season teams. The Jets chased Pekka Rinne with two goals on shots Rinne badly wanted back, then pulled away in the third period for a 5-1 win that wrapped up a 4-3 series victory and their first trip to a conference final.While these aren’t the same teams that skated up and down the Bridgestone Arena ice on a warm spring night, they’re still mostly intact. And the home crowd is sure to remember that Winnipeg ended what they presumed would be a run to the Stanley Cup.“It’ll probably get hyped up more just because of what happened last year, and I think that’s just the way things go from previous years when teams come back and they reconnect the next year,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. “There’s always more of a hot button to it, but at the end of the day it’s a new season.”One that the Jets (2-1-0) have started with great expectations after their best NHL season. They played their home opener as well on Tuesday night but unlike Nashville, they sent the home crowd out of the rink in a good mood after dispatching Los Angeles 2-1.The final score didn’t reflect Winnipeg’s domination. The Jets owned major advantages in shots on goal (39-17), 5-on-5 shot attempts (56-33) and faceoff wins (37-21).“We generate chances, zone time http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/jarvis-landry-jersey , from a certain type of mentality of what pucks we shoot and which ones we don’t,” Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said. “When we shoot the ones we want, we’re able to carry and maintain our speed in the offensive zone.” ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild are fighting to stay in the playoff hunt. Their opponent Thursday night, the Arizona Coyotes, are as far outside of the playoff picture as possible.That might not have been readily apparent based on the result at Xcel Energy Center.Clayton Keller scored Arizona’s fourth straight goal at 3:55 of overtime to give the Coyotes a 4-3 comeback victory. Arizona snapped a four-game losing streak.”That was a good, gutsy win,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said. ”We picked up the pace, we had puck possession and guys started believing what we were doing out there.”The 19-year-old Keller also had the winner Dec. 22 against Washington.Nick Cousins scored twice for Arizona, which entered the game with the worst record in the NHL. Cousins’ second goal tied it with 18.3 seconds remaining in regulation after Arizona pulled goalie Antti Raanta for an extra attacker.”With the goalie pulled anything can happen Authentic Jarvis Landry Jersey , so it was nice to get one there,” Cousins said. ”I think they were on their heels there in the third period and that was probably one of our better periods of the season.”Kevin Connaughton also scored for Arizona, and Raanta stopped 25 shots.Though Minnesota scored the first three goals, the Wild admitted after the game it didn’t feel like a 3-0 lead. Minnesota was outshot through two periods and was sloppy on both ends of the ice.”I don’t know how to explain it. It shouldn’t happen. It can’t happen,” said Wild forward Zach Parise. ”Right now in the race that we’re in and that we’re going to be in for the rest of the year, it’s a tough point to lose.”Eric Staal, Matt Cullen and Mike Reilly scored to give Minnesota a 3-0 lead, and Devan Dubnyk made 37 saves.Staal opened the scoring with 2:47 to play in the first period with his team-leading 24th goal. Staal fired a pass from Jared Spurgeon top shelf past Raanta.Cullen, the Wild’s 41-year-old forward, made it 2-0 early in the second period on a breakaway.The Wild were without defenseman Jonas Brodin on Thursday after Brodin suffered a broken hand Tuesday against St. Louis. In Brodin’s absences Authentic Bradley Chubb Jersey , Minnesota’s young defenseman such as Reilly and Gustav Olofsson will have a chance to gain some additional ice time.Reilly took advantage Thursday, scoring his first goal of the season and just the third of his NHL career. Reilly grabbed a loose puck out of the air and set it on the ice before firing from the faceoff circle past Raanta.Arizona clawed back with three unanswered goals in regulation. Cousins buried a cross-ice pass from Alex Goligoski for the Coyotes’ first goal midway through the second period. Connaughton’s goal 8:02 into the third made it a one-goal game.The Coyotes came to St. Paul with just 12 wins on the season, while Minnesota’s 27 wins and 59 points had the Wild hovering on the cusp of the top eight spots in the Western Conference.Thursday’s overtime loss was a point the Wild felt they should have had.”That’s not good enough. Pretty simple. That was the message after the game and the message from here on in,” said Wild coach Bruce Boudreau. ”You’re fighting for your playoff lives and you come up and you blow a 3-0 lead to a team that isn’t going to be in the playoffs. You can’t be successful if you do that.”NOTES: Minnesota made a trade Thursday, acquiring defenseman Viktor Loov from the New Jersey Devils. The Wild sent forwards Christoph Bertschy and Mario Lucia to New Jersey in exchange for Loov. … Coyotes D Oliver Ekman-Larsson was a minus-1 in Thursday’s win and is now a league-worst minus-41 on the season. … Arizona D Luke Schenn and F Christian Fischer were both scratched Thursday for just the third time each this year.UP NEXTWild: Host Chicago on Saturday night.Coyotes: Host Flyers on Saturday night.
