The Anaheim Ducks are looking for
#1
ANAHEIM Gabriel Landeskog Jersey Kids , Calif. (AP) —  a strong finish to a lost season.Daniel Sprong scored for the third consecutive game, and Anaheim beat the Nashville Predators 3-2 on Tuesday night.Ryan Getzlaf and Jakob Silfverberg also scored for the disappointing Ducks (28-34-9), who have won four of their past six games. John Gibson made 32 saves.“We’re playing some pretty good hockey here,” Silfverberg said. “There’s 11 games left and we might as well make the most of it and keep playing the way we are.”Filip Forsberg scored two power-plays goal for the Predators, who have lost two straight and four of six overall. Pekka Rinne made 15 stops.Nashville (39-27-5) could have passed Winnipeg for first place in the Central Division with a win. Instead, the Predators were stymied by another slow start.Anaheim was able to spring several odd-man rushes on Nashville in the first period, starting when the Ducks jumped in front at 3:39 on Getzlaf’s 12th goal. Getzlaf had a breakaway set up by Josh Manson’s stretch pass http://www.officialavalanche.com/authent...her-jersey , and he scored on a wrist shot from the left circle.Silfverberg made it 2-0 at 10:56, extending his point streak to six games. He has four goals and four assists in that span.“It’s been a tough year so it’s nice to have maybe a little bit of brightness at the end of the year getting some goals,” Silfverberg said. “It’s the same for me as for the whole team, we’re just trying to create good habits here and try to build for the future.”Sprong put the Ducks up 3-0 at 13:59 of the second. He sped down the right wing and cut inside before burying a backhand from the slot for his 12th goal in 53 games.The Predators finally showed some fight in the third.Forsberg got Nashville on the board at 14:16, with Rinne pulled for a three-man advantage after Manson put the puck over the boards for delay of game. Jaycob Megna was already in the penalty box for holding the stick of Mikael Granlund.Forsberg cut the deficit to 3-2 at 15:14. But the Predators could not come up with a tying goal despite peppering Gibson in the final minutes.Rinne said the inability to mount a charge earlier in the game was more frustrating knowing Nashville could have moved ahead of Winnipeg.“It’s just a sleepy game, not much going on,” Rinne said. “It’s a situation in the season where we have a lot of things in our own hands and considering that it’s disappointing.”NOTES: Rinne saved a penalty shot by Max Jones at 11:47 of the second period after the Ducks rookie was pulled down from behind by Nick Bonino. … The Predators were 2 for 5 on the power play. Nashville was 6 for 80 on the power play over the previous 25 games. … Predators D Roman Josi had an assist to extend his point streak to four games. .

If we play like this Mikko Rantanen Jersey , it’ll be a fun however many games we have left.”Flames goaltender Mike Smith made 18 saves.Calgary (47-22-7) held on to the top spot in the Pacific Division.Kings defenseman Drew Doughty was booed whenever he touched the puck at the Saddledome.

Tkachuk served a two-game suspension for the hit.Doughty and Tkachuk tangled early in the third period, with Doughty taking a slashing penalty.After a scoreless second period, Kings center Brodzinski beat Smith with a wrist shot from the top of the circle at 11:51 of the third for a 2-0 lead.Calgary trailed 1-0 after two periods despite outshooting the Kings 31-14.“You need everything clicking at this time of the year if you want to have success,” Flames head coach Bill Peters said.“I don’t think we were overly-impressed with our own execution. I thought we could have executed with the puck allowing us to play faster.“We gave up one early and ended up chasing the game.”Los Angeles ended the first period and opened the second with a two-man advantage, but failed to score.Forbort threaded a soft wrist shot through traffic and beat Smith on the glove side 57 seconds after the opening faceoff.“They have crazy talented players and their power-play, I thought we eliminated a lot of their high-end chances because we won some draws and cleared the puck,” Campbell said.“When you do that Nathan MacKinnon Jersey , they’ll get frustrated.”Los Angeles laid 22 hits to Calgary’s 11 and kept Flames shots to the perimeter, where Campbell could see them.“Obviously, Jack was incredible for us and made some big saves at key moments that kept us in the game,” Kings defenseman Dion Phaneuf said.“But we wanted to come in and play a good road game against a very good team. They’re where they’re at in the standings for a reason.“They’re a deep team, a fast team, they play with structure. I thought we did a really good job tonight and we deserved the win.”NOTES: A healthy scratch in three of the last four Kings games, forward Ilya Kovalchuk did not accompany the team on their three-game road swing through Calgary Authentic Alexander Wennberg Jersey , Edmonton and Vancouver. … Kings coach Willie Desjardins dressed seven defensemen and 11 forwards for Monday’s game. … Flames forward Sam Bennett was scratched with an upper-body injury. … Kings forward Kyle Clifford of Ayr, Ontario, played his 600th career game.UP NEXTKings: At Edmonton on Tuesday.Flames: Host the Dallas Stars on Wednesday.
