COLUMBUS Evgenii Dadonov Jersey Kids , Ohio — Two teams trying to find their footing in the first month of the season meet Thursday night when the Philadelphia Flyers face the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena.The Flyers (3-3-0) blew a three-goal lead on Tuesday but survived for their first home win of the young season with a 6-5 shootout victory over the Florida Panthers.The Blue Jackets (3-2-0) have not played since they were roughed up at Tampa Bay in an 8-2 loss to the Lightning on Saturday.Article continues below ...The teams’ No. 1 goaltenders didn’t have their best games the last time out.Philadelphia’s Brian Elliott was in goal when the Flyers surrendered the big lead against the Panthers, but coach Dave Hakstol remains confident in the team’s Elliott even though he pulled him from that game in the third period with a 5-4 lead.“We have a plan going forward,” Hakstol said. “Moose is our No. 1 guy, plain and simple. (Tuesday) night’s a tough game for a goaltender to play. Was it his very best, no. When I took him out, he just got scored on on a breakaway that we gave up in a two-goal hockey game. So, there’s a lot of things that went into that.”Columbus’ Sergei Bobrovsky has been in goal for both of the Blue Jackets’ losses, including the debacle at Tampa Bay. The eight goals were the most he has allowed in his NHL career.But Bobrovsky has owned his former team, posting a 10-3-1 career record against the Flyers that includes two shutouts, a 1.91 goals-against average and an .933 save percentage.“He’s unreal. He plays amazing against us every time,” Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere said, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. “I think he’s the hardest goalie to score on. He’s athletic. He makes saves and your jaw drops (because) you wouldn’t expect him to make them.”A big problem for the Blue Jackets in the blowout loss was their special teams. The Lightning converted 4 of 7 power play chances after going 0 of 8 in their first two games.Meanwhile http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-james-reimer-jersey , the Blue Jackets were unable to capitalize with their own power play (0 of 5). They had a four-minute power play early in the second period and managed only two shots on goal.Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella is trying to figure out the right combinations on his forward lines and special teams. The top line of Artemi Panarin, Pierre-Luc Dubois and Cam Atkinson is not the problem, having accounted for 14 points and six of the Blue Jackets’ 16 goals in five games.“It’s a constant monitoring, I guess, of where we’re at,” Tortorella said, according to The Columbus Dispatch. “I know people always go, ‘He’s changing his lines.’ It happens to all coaches. But then, when you’re not changing your lines to try to get some offense, (people say) ‘Why didn’t he change his lines?’ It’s just something I have to watch closely, especially so early in the year.”In addition to trying to get more contributions from centers Alexander Wennberg, Riley Nash and Lukas Sedlak Youth Jamie McGinn Jersey , Tortorella hopes to give his fourth line of Oliver Bjorkstrand, Sonny Milano and Sedlak more playing time.“I just simply have to get (them) in more offensive situations without taking it away from other people, too,” Tortorella said. “It’s a hard thing to do because I’m still concerned about just our overall flow of the offensive game. So that’s what I’m juggling.”The Flyers hit the road looking to play more consistently than they did their last time out. Jakub Voracek and Jordan Weal scored the goals in the shootout that allowed Philadelphia to avoid an embarrassing cave-in loss to Florida.Weal also had a goal in regulation and an assist as the Flyers bounced back from a 1-0 home loss to Vegas on Saturday.“He built on what he did Saturday afternoon,” Hakstol said of Weal. “(Tuesday) night, he and his linemates went out and played the exact same way as they did Saturday afternoon and they were able to chip in some key offensive numbers for us.” NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — After a lackluster opening period by the Nashville Predators, Ryan Hartman and Kevin Fiala went to work.Hartman scored twice in a 57-second span and Juuse Saros made 23 saves to lead Nashville to a 4-1 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night.Calle Jarnkrok and Viktor Arvidsson also scored, and Fiala assisted on both of Hartman’s goals for the Predators, who have won two of their last three.Reilly Smith had the lone goal for Vegas, which has dropped three of four.Trailing by a goal after one, Hartman and Fiala connected and turned a deficit into a lead just past the midpoint of the second period.Hartman made it 1-1 at 11:27 of the second. From the left boards Womens Jared McCann Jersey , Fiala passed to Hartman in the high slot.Hartman danced around Vegas defender Colin Miller before making a move and beating Vegas goaltender Malcolm Subban high to the stick side, just beneath the crossbar.“I was thinking shot,” Hartman said. “He was pretty tight on his gap, so I was able to step around him and kind of have a 1-on-1 with the goalie there.”Fiala and Hartman teamed up again 57 seconds later to give Nashville a 2-1 lead. Nashville entered the Vegas zone on a 3-on-1. Fiala sent a nifty backhand pass from the right circle to Hartman at the left faceoff dot. Hartman did not get all of the puck with his one-timer, but he got enough to beat a sliding Subban high to the stick side.“Today I was just thinking about playing the right way,” Fiala said. “Just simple game and not thinking about too much, scoring goals or whatever. If you stop thinking, sometimes it works, and today obviously it did.”Fiala entered Tuesday with just three points in 11 games.P.K. Subban, the older brother of the Vegas goaltender, picked up the secondary assist on the goal.“I didn’t think that we showed ourselves very well in the first period,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “But I thought the team and the lines and the players showed pretty well in the second and third.”Smith scored the game’s first goal at 17:14 of the first. With Vegas on a power play Jonathan Huberdeau Jersey , an unchecked Smith skated to the left faceoff dot and snapped a wrist shot past Saros on the far side. Smith’s goal was set up by a nice pass from Jonathan Marchessault along the right boards.“They cashed in on our mistakes in the second period, and nobody stepped up after that,” Marchessault said. “(Subban) was awesome tonight and we weren’t there for him.”Making his fifth-straight start due to an injury to Pekka Rinne, Saros was sharp in the first, stopping 12 of 13 shots.Jarnkrok gave Nashville a two-goal lead at 6:37 of the third. On another odd-man rush, Craig Smith sent a pass from the right side to Jarnkrok in the left circle, where he ripped a one-timer past Malcolm Subban, who finished with 24 saves.“We made some bad choices on pinches that cost us a couple of goals tonight and gave them a lot of odd-man rushes,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “That’s not what we usually do and it cost us tonight.”With the Vegas goaltender pulled for an extra attacker with just over two minutes remaining in the third, Arvidsson was fouled from behind by Nick Holden on a breakaway and a goal was credited to the Swedish winger.NOTES: Hartman had his first multi-goal game as a Predator. … Nashville has allowed at least one power-play goal in its last four games. … Predators D Matt Irwin played his first game of the season after being a healthy scratch for the first 11. … Vegas has scored one power-play goal in three consecutive games.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Visit St. Louis on Thursday.Predators: Visit Tampa Bay on Thursday.
