VANCOUVER Sidney Crosby Jersey , British Columbia (AP) — Chalk up another first for Elias Pettersson.The rookie sensation scored on his initial NHL penalty shot and the Vancouver Canucks beat the Nashville Predators 5-3 Thursday night to snap a four-game losing streak.Pettersson made it look easy, snaking his way across the ice, making a couple of dekes, then slipping the puck past the toe of Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne to give Vancouver a 4-1 lead late in the second period.“I was trying to fake and go right to left,” said Pettersson, who also had an assist. “It worked out this time.”Bo Horvat said it’s the kind of play the Canucks have come to expect from the 20-year-old Swede.“It was a highly skilled move by a highly skilled player,” said Horvat, who had a goal and an assist. “You expect him to do those kinds of things and it’s nice to see that go in for him.”Pettersson was awarded the penalty shot with 1:11 left in the second period after being hauled down on a breakaway by Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm. Pettersson took his time getting to his feet.“I was mostly tired, actually,” he said. “I took some time to rest. I was ready to go when the ref blew the whistle.”Picked fifth overall in the 2017 draft, Pettersson leads all rookies with 14 goals and 25 points. He started the season with nine goals and six assists in his first nine games but had just one goal and three assists in his last eight.“Some games you can create a lot and have zero points,” he said. “Sometimes you create two chances and you have two points.“I’m only focusing on playing a good game Dougie Hamilton Jersey Womens , then the points will eventually come.”Jake Virtanen also had a goal and an assist for the Canucks, who have just two wins in their last 14 games (2-10-2).Alex Edler, on the power play, and Loui Eriksson also scored for Vancouver (12-16-3). Antoine Roussel had two assists. Nikolay Goldobin, a healthy scratch in Vancouver’s 3-2 loss Tuesday to Minnesota, assisted on Edler’s goal to give him a team-leading 13 helpers.Ryan Hartman, Colton Sissons and Matt Irwin scored for Nashville (19-9-1), which won its previous two games. Rinne, making his sixth straight start, had 21 saves before being replaced to start the third period by Juuse Saros. He stopped four shots.Canucks goaltender Jacob Markstrom made 26 saves.The line of Horvat, Virtanen and Roussel was particularly effective, combining for six points http://www.officialsharks.com/authentic-adidas-brent-burns-jersey , two goals and plenty of chances.“I felt like with our speed we were catching them on 2-on-1s a lot,” Virtanen said.With just 26 seconds left in the first period, Horvat took a feed from Virtanen and rifled a shot under the crossbar.“Bo had a great finish,” Virtanen said. “It was a perfect shot.”Virtanen’s goal came early in the second on a 2-on-1 break started by Horvat. Roussel carried the puck into the Nashville end, then slid a pass past defenseman Ryan Ellis that Virtanen fired by Rinne.The Predators, who were playing without three of their top forwards and one of their best defensemen, looked sluggish early and trailed 2-0 after 20 minutes.“That was a little bit ugly,” Sissons said. “We came out extremely slow and (with) a lack of determination and they were quite the opposite.“We didn’t show up ready to play.”The Predators made things interesting with a couple of goals late in the third period.“I thought we pushed back in the second half of the game, but it was too late,” coach Peter Laviolette said. “The start wasn’t good, and it ended up costing the game.”The victory blew some confidence back into the Canucks’ sails as the team heads out on the road for games in St. Louis, Columbus and Nashville.“I can’t stress how huge that was for us Julien Gauthier Jersey Womens ,” said Horvat, who has nine points (three goals, six assists) in the last nine games. “We have to keep it going now.“We can’t win one, then lose a couple. We have to keep our spirits high and keep the positive momentum going into the road and try and get some wins.”NOTES: Eriksson’s goal was his first point in 11 games. … In a span of 1:40 during the first period, Edler scored a goal, flattened Yannick Weber with a big hit and was called for a penalty. … The Canucks went 0 for 12 on the power play in their previous four games. … D Michael Del Zotto was a healthy scratch for the first time since an eight-game stretch in October. … The Predators played without forwards Kyle Turris, Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson, and defenseman P.K. Subban — all due to injury.UP NEXTPredators: Play at Calgary on Saturday night.Canucks: Play at St. Louis on Sunday afternoon. NEW YORK (AP) The Boston Bruins have been winning every conceivable way recently. Against the sagging New York Rangers, they used stellar goaltending early and six straight goals to do the job.Riley Nash and Zdeno Chara scored first-period goals and Patrice Bergeron added two in the second to help the surging Bruins swamp the Rangers 6-1 on Wednesday night.The Bruins won for the 18th time in their last 23 games, getting 21 saves from backup netminder Anton Khudobin. The Bruins (33-11-8) are just a point behind Atlantic Division-leading Tampa Bay.”In the first period, our goaltender was terrific,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. ”He was the difference tonight. We got a lead going into the second and once that happened Womens Evander Kane Jersey , our group thought we would be in good shape.”Tim Schaller’s goal that made it 4-1 at 7:25 of the second period chased Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist and brought boos from the crowd at Madison Square Garden. Lundqvist was replaced by Ondrej Pavelec.”After they scored two in the first, instead of staying aggressive the way I need to be, I became passive,” said Lundqvist, who hasn’t won since Jan. 18. ”When you lose a lot, obviously it’s going to affect you.”The Rangers had won seven straight over the Bruins, including both meetings this season. But New York was no match for the Boston attack on Wednesday.After Rick Nash gave the Rangers an early lead with his 16th goal five minutes into the first period, the Bruins began their relentless barrage. Riley Nash tied it with his eighth of the season at 7:54 with assists to David Backes and Danton Heinen.Lundqvist initially stopped a shot by Backes. But the Bruins forward recovered his rebound, then sent the puck in front to Nash as Rangers defenseman Tony DeAngelo was caught out of position.Chara, the 40-year-old defenseman playing his 20th NHL season, put Boston ahead at 16:09 of the first with his fifth goal of the season and the 193rd of his career.”We were talking we wanted to keep making strong plays and play well defensively,” Chara said. ”Anton made some really good saves for us and we got ahead.”The Bruins extended the lead to 3-1 at 3:47 of the second when Bergeron’s long shot from just inside the blue line skittered past Lundqvist after the goaltender seemed to make a pad save.Schaller extended the lead with his eighth of the season before Bergeron scored his second of the game – this time short-handed – at the 10-minute mark. The goal was Bergeron’s team-leading 24th and came with assists to Chara and Brad Marchand Authentic Joe Pavelski Jersey , who returned after serving a five-game suspension for elbowing New Jersey’s Marcus Johansson.”Every line is stepping up for us,” Marchand said. ”It makes us hard to play against.”Sean Kuraly completed the scoring with his fifth goal at 6:14 of the third.Boston is 18-1-4 in their last 23 games and 27-4-4 in its last 35 contests. The Bruins are 10-0-2 in their last 12 road games. They last lost an away game in regulation on Dec. 4 at Nashville.”We want to play up to a certain standard and not worry about what the other team does,” Chara added. ”We just want to focus on us.”The spiraling Rangers have lost four straight and seven of their last eight games. They are 3-10-0 since winning at Arizona on Jan. 6. The Rangers last missed the playoffs in 2010.”There’s no doubt they made us look very bad tonight,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. ”There’s no doubt that in the second period after that third and fourth goal, we fell hard.”NOTES: Lundqvist made his 788th career appearance, tying Gilles Meloche for 17th place on the NHL goalies list. . The Rangers were without injured forward Chris Kreider, Pavel Buchnevich and Jimmy Vesey, as well as defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk and Marc Staal … Boston scratched forward Frank Vatrano and defensemen Paul Postma and Kevan Miller.UP NEXTBruins: Host Buffalo on Saturday night.Rangers: Host Calgary on Friday night.
