at youre gong to hit those
#1
Saturdays game had a strange start to it with Chris Thorburn dropping the gloves with Zdeno Chara after Chara got a penalty for a high hit on Blake Wheeler. Two seconds after that, James Wright fought Matt Fraser. All of that occurred before the game was even four minutes old. The Jets opened the scoring at the 10:54 mark of the first period with Dustin Byfuglien scoring his 9th of the season, unassisted. Byfuglien has scored in back-to-back games and has now surpassed his goal total of last year with three goals and seven assists in his last 11 games. But he would be the only Jet to beat Tuukka Rask in the afternoon game in Boston. Daniel Paille tied the game at 14:06 and the first period ended 1-1 with the Bruins outshooting the Jets 10-9. The second period was the Jets best offensively, but despite outshooting the Bruins 19-12, the team came out trailing 3-1. With the game still tied at one, the Jets had a number of chances to take the lead, the best when Devin Setoguchi had Rask down and put one off the cross bar. Only 53 seconds later, the Bruins took the lead Torey Krug scored his first of two goals and, after an assist on the goal in the first, had his first career three-point game. The rookie defenceman was a plus-three in the game with four shots on goal. The only goal of the third came from Riley Smith with his team leading 15th of the year. The Jets outshot the Bruins 37-29 with Byfuglien leading the way with seven shots, followed by Evander Kane with six. After 19 shots by defencemen in Ottawa, Jets had another 19 in this game. Jacob Trouba had tough night, finishing minus-three in only 18:44 of ice time, his second lowest total of the season other than the game against St. Louis where he was injured. Andrew Ladd has now gone back-to-back games without a shot on goal, while Bryan Littles current run of only two goals in his last 21 games (hes pointless in his last four) has Byfuglien just one point behind him for the team scoring lead.  Blake Wheeler has now been kept off the score sheet for three straight games. “I didnt think we played hard enough,” commented Jets coach Claude Noel post-game." We had a few good scoring chances in the second, but needed more people in front of the net. Our guy (Ondrej Pavelec) didnt see much on the ones that went in. You cant give up four goals in this league and expect to win. We have to defend better, we have to check better. Give up three or four and you are chasing the game.” The Jets close out their three-game road trip in Pittsburgh against the Penguins on Sunday afternoon before returning home to face the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday evening. Both games are available on TSN Jets regional and TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg.

Sean Monahan continued his impressive rookie season, scoring his team-leading 14th goal as Calgary snapped its record seven-game losing streak at the Scotiabank Saddledome with a 3-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes. "We have great fans so we want to play hard for them and win games for them," said Monahan. "Together as a group, we know we can be better than we were and thats what were working towards." Monahan opened the scoring at 11:44 of the first period. It was the first time in nine home games Calgary had struck first. In fact, the Flames hadnt held the lead in a home game since Dec. 12, the day general manager Jay Feaster was fired. "It was nice to get one early and we started to build off that," said Monahan, 19, who moved ahead of Mike Cammalleri and Jiri Hudler for the team lead in goals. "It was a big moment in the game for us and that helped us carry momentum throughout the game." The goal was set up by TJ Galiardis hustle. After winning a race to the puck deep in the Coyotes zone, Galiardi promptly zipped the puck in front where Monahan tapped it in behind goaltender Mike Smith, firing up the sell-out crowd of 19,289. "A pretty incredible play. He showed his speed to get to the puck and win that race. It was an unbelievable pass to get it over and lucky enough, I finished it," said Monahan, who is third in rookie goals behind Colorados Nathan MacKinnon (17) and San Joses Tomas Hertl (15). Calgary never relinquished that lead thanks partly to Karri Ramo, who finished the night with 30 saves to improve to 9-10-4. The 27-year-old Finn was especially sharp in the opening 20 minutes when Phoenix outshot the Flames 11-6 but trailed 1-0. He was counted on again in the third and in the final minute in particular when the Coyotes pulled Smith for an extra attacker and poured on the pressure. "Weve faced some tough times. But the last few home games, weve been playing really good too, especially against Pittsburgh we played really good and we havent got the reward," Ramo said. "We deserved to win today." Lance Bouma and Matt Stajan also scored for Calgary (17-27-7), which scored more than two goals for just the second time since Christmas. The Flames had been outscored 22-4 during its seven-game home losing streak. "We caan take a lot defensively from this game, especially with their D that are so active," Stajan said.dddddddddddd "We have four more games here at home and we want to make sure we keep at it." Kicking off a five-game homestand, Calgary will try to make it two wins in a row Friday night against Nashville. Antoine Vermette and Shane Doan scored for Phoenix (23-18-9), which has dropped eight of its last 11. The Coyotes remain four points behind the Minnesota Wild for the second wild card spot in the Western Conference. "Its challenging but the guys that have been around long enough in this league know that youre gong to hit those stretches in a season. Its how you manage to get out of it," says Vermette. Winless in its last five games away from home, Phoenixs three-game road trip to Western Canada continues Friday night in Edmonton. "Sometimes its tempting to get frustrated and fall into that trap. But if you do the right thing over a long period of time, eventually its going to turn your way," Vermette said. The Flames surged in front 2-0 at 8:48 of the second period on a perfectly executed fast break. Curling out from behind his own net, TJ Brodie threaded a long pass to Bouma at the Phoenix blue-line. In behind the Coyotes defence, Bouma darted in and snapped a perfect shot into the top corner. Vermette cut the lead to 2-1 on a short-handed goal less than five minutes later but Stajan restored the two-goal cushion before the period ended . "Weve been down lately in a lot of games and weve got to be better," said Doan, who got Phoenix back within one at 6:50 of the third. "If you look at our record, weve been average if that and weve got a lot better team than an average team." Smith, who had 23 saves, falls to 17-15-8. Notes: Flames LW Mike Cammalleri (concussion) missed his sixth game. Also not dressed for Calgary was LW Paul Byron (foot)... Missing for Phoenix was C Martin Hanzal (lower body), who missed his second game and D David Schlemko (upper body). Both are day-to-day... Calgarys only two regulation wins in the last 21 home games have come against the Coyotes. They also beat Phoenix 4-1 on Dec. 4... After 48 games without one, the Coyotes have short-handed goals in two consecutive games... With Henrik Sedins streak ending, Vermette (361) and D Keith Yandle (353) now have the third and fourth longest active iron-man streaks in the NHL. ' ' '
