Сообщение DENVER (AP) — The Toronto Maple Leafs had one powerful surge 
DENVER (AP) — The Toronto Maple Leafs had one powerful surge against Colorado Winnipeg Jets Hoodies Womens , and it came from their re-energized power play.Nazem Kadri and Kasperi Kapanen scored power-play goals 22 seconds apart in the second period, Frederik Andersen stopped 34 shots and the Maple Leafs beat Colorado 5-2 on Tuesday night, extending the Avalanche’s winless streak to eight games.Kapanen and Kadri each finished with two goals, while Auston Matthews added a goal and two assists.Toronto broke things open in the second with three power-play goals over a 1:49 span to make it a 4-1 contest. It was tied for the fifth-fastest three-goal, power-play effort by the Maple Leafs in a regular-season game since 1933-34.They had gone three straight contests without a power-play goal before Tuesday.“It was great to see our guys be rewarded,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “Gives them a bit of swagger back and the power play was the difference in the game.”Right after Matthews scored on a power play to make it 2-1, Avalanche forward J.T. Compher committed a costly high-stick penalty that resulted in a double minor. Kadri and Kapanen each cashed in to give Toronto some breathing room.“We take a double-minor 200 feet away from our net. At this point, that’s ridiculous,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. “You can’t do that, especially not against a team that definitely has one of the more dangerous power plays in the league.”The Avalanche pulled Semyon Varlamov after giving up four goals on 17 shots. Philipp Grubauer allowed one goal in relief.Ryan Graves and Alexander Kerfoot scored for a reeling Avalanche team that’s gone 0-5-3 over their last eight games. The team returned to the Pepsi Center after losing three straight overtime contests on the road. Home ice didn’t help.Andersen and the defense bottled up Colorado most of the evening. The top line of Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen were limited to a combined two shots — both by MacKinnon.“Just eliminating time and space for those guys Winnipeg Jets Hats Womens ,” explained Andersen, whose team lost 6-3 to Colorado in Toronto on Jan. 14. “Their top line is where they get most of their production from. We want to eliminate that as much as possible.”Matthews’ goal was the 99th of his NHL career. The Maple Leafs improved to 15-2-1 this season when Matthews — the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft — scores a goal.Kapanen had a breakaway chance 28 seconds into the game, only to have his backhand attempted stopped by Varlamov’s right pad. Given another breakaway opportunity later in the first period, Kapanen wouldn’t miss again.The right winger caught an elevated pass from Matthews with his right glove and, without missing a stride, quickly set the puck back down. Kapanen flipped a shot over Varlamov’s glove.“I don’t know why I went with my backhand … I’m not a big backhand guy,” Kapanen said. “The second one — I had a little bit more time and I’ve been using that (move) this year. It went in this time, too.”About that pass from Matthews — pure perfection.“He sees the ice well and knows what to do,” Kapanen said.Colorado tied it up with 4:44 remaining in the first when Andersen couldn’t track Graves’ liner from the blue line through traffic. It was about the only thing Andersen didn’t stop over the opening period. Andersen had a sequence where he stopped a flurry shots down low, even after being pushed into the goal.Just the way things have lately gone for the Avalanche. Colorado was tied for the most points in the Western Conference after games on Dec. 7. Since then, the team has gone 5-16-6.“Try to block out the doubts you have in your head Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys ,” Landeskog said. “We’re in way too good of a spot and way too much hockey left to be played to be sulking and hanging our heads.”NOTES: Toronto C John Tavares had two assists. … Avalanche recalled F Tyson Jost from the Colorado Eagles of the American Hockey League. … D Ian Cole (upper body) remains out indefinitely.… This is Colorado’s longest winless streak since going 0-8-1 from Jan. 12 to Feb. 1, 2017.UP NEXTMaple Leafs: At Vegas on Thursday for the fourth of a six-game trip.Avalanche: At Winnipeg on Thursday before a three-game homestand. MONTREAL (AP) — A bad penalty by Jonathan Drouin in the dying minutes crushed Montreal’s comeback hopes.With Drouin in the box for high-sticking, Boston’s John Moore scored a power-play goal to give the Bruins a 3-2 victory over the Canadiens on Saturday night in a hard-hitting and penalty-filled affair.“You can’t take a penalty at that time of the game,” coach Claude Julien said. “If he (Drouin) said that it’s on him, well he’s right. You have to be disciplined. We can’t do those things if we want to win hockey games. “Montreal has lost four games in a row for the first time this season.With less than six minutes remaining in a 2-2 contest, Drouin cross-checked David Backes in the face, cutting the Bruins winger below the bottom lip. The incident happened away from the run of play just minutes after the Canadiens came back from two goals down to equalize.“He was coming at me,” Drouin said about Backes. “I didn’t mean to hit him in the face.”Moore scored his first goal of the season on the four-minute power play, at 17:03 of the third, and the Bruins held on for their third win in four games.“A four-minute power play with five minutes left in a tie game is certainly a good thing to have,” said Backes , who also scored and added an assist. “We made good on it. Kudos to the guys in here for staying with it. I don’t mind bleeding. Bleeding’s better than concussions to me. If that’s what it takes to win, I’ll take blood.”Jake DeBrusk also scored, Tuukka Rask made 32 saves, and David Krejci had two assists.Drouin and Tomas Tatar scored in the third period for Montreal, and Carey Price stopped 32 shots. The Canadiens have lost four straight.Boston finished 1 for 6 with the man advantage, while Montreal was 1 for 5. Both teams combined for 30 penalty minutes.It was the second game of a back-to-back series for both teams. Boston beat Pittsburgh 2-1 in overtime on Friday, while Montreal lost 3-2 in overtime in Buffalo.The Bruins took a 1-0 lead at 13:01 of the first period when Backes swiped the puck from Jesperi Kotkaniemi at the Montreal blue line before beating Price glove side for his first goal of the season.With the teams playing 4-on-4, DeBrusk doubled Boston’s lead at 14:42 when he got behind defenseman Brett Kulak and tapped in a beautiful pass from Torey Krug.Drouin got one back for the home team at 6:46 for his ninth of the season. Drouin beat Krug with speed in the Boston zone before squeezing a shot between Rask’s pads.Tatar got the equalizer for Montreal on the power play at 10:09 of the third. With David Pastrnak in the box for slashing, Tatar took a pass from Andrew Shaw from behind the net and roofed a one-timer past Rask.NOTES: The Bruins were without the injured Zdeno Chara (knee) and Patrice Bergeron (rib). … It was the second of four meetings between the Canadiens and Bruins this season.UP NEXTBruins: At Toronto on Monday night.Canadiens: Host Carolina on Tuesday night.
