The New York Rangers and the Buffalo Sabres are rebuilding teams.So Womens Luke Kunin Jersey , it is no surprise that both will be looking for their first win of the season when they meet Saturday in Buffalo after losing their respective season openers at home on Thursday.The Rangers lost 3-2 to the Nashville Predators, while the Sabres were defeated 4-0 by the Boston Bruins, who were hurting from their 7-0 loss to the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals in their season opener on Wednesday.Article continues below ...The Rangers played in the closer game, but that did not seem to impress their new coach, David Quinn.“I didn’t think we really played to the level that we’re looking for,” Quinn said. “Obviously, we are up against a team (Nashville) that’s one of the favorites to win the Stanley Cup, so it was certainly a great test. I just thought we were hesitant, I didn’t think we hounded the puck like we did in the preseason. It’s probably the most odd-man rushes we gave up in any game we’ve played. We’ve just got to be harder on the puck. We’ve got to do a better job of playing ‘in your face’ hockey.”There was even less for the Sabres to celebrate. They are supposed to be different this season with a playoff push considered a possibility after so many seasons in the NHL wilderness. But on Thursday they were booed off the ice after the first period when they fell behind 2-0.“Was it disappointing in front of a good crowd that was here to support us?” Sabres coach Phil Housley asked. “You’re dang right. It’s disappointing. So, what can we control? We can control how we come to the rink (Friday) and work because we are not going through this again.”Look for both teams to play with more energy on Saturday. Hard work and accountability have been the theme for Quinn since he took over. The Sabres, meanwhile, will not want to disappoint the home fans again after a preseason that produced some optimism.“Obviously, we want our fans to appreciate our effort Marcus Foligno Jersey ,” said Sabres center Jack Eichel, who was playing his first game as the team captain on Thursday. “In the same sense, we’ve got to be better for them and put a better product on the ice. We’ve got to bear down, score goals. We’ve got to bring it for them. Their fuse is a bit short for us and rightfully so. We haven’t played well the past few years so that’s on us to put a better product on the ice.”The Sabres will be trying to take a more direct route to the goal as they try to score their first goal of the season, let alone win. They took only six shots in the first period Thursday and finished the game with 32 on the strength of 15 third-period shots when they Bruins had control of the game.“We’ve got to think shot,” Housley said. “We overpassed the puck way too much (Thursday). That’s not our game. Our game is straightforward, playing north, get pucks behind the other team, shoot the puck and then we’ve got to get net-front presence.”The Rangers’ best line in their loss consisted of Kevin Hayes, Jimmy Vesey and Mats Zuccarello. Vesey failed to score on two good chances and Zuccarello was stopped by Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne three times on close-in chances. Hayes led the Rangers with four hits.“It’s a tough one, the home opener,” Zuccarello said. “I wish we had a better result, but at the end of the day http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-matt-dumba-jersey , I liked our compete effort. The effort was there; everyone wanted to show themselves off. I had some chances and we had a bunch of chances to win this game.”The Rangers were 3-0-0 against Buffalo last season. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Nicklas Backstrom’s 200th NHL goal was a game-winner.Backstrom got a desperation, cross-ice pass from T.J. Oshie and beat Sergei Bobrovsky with 43 seconds left to lift the Washington Capitals over the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 on Tuesday night.Brandon Dubinsky tied the score for Columbus late in the third period and the game appeared headed to overtime before a wide-open Backstrom snapped in a shot from the bottom of the right circle.”Oshie picked it up and fed me back door,” said Backstrom, who got his 12th goal and 40th point of the season.The goal capped a game in which Columbus was the dominant team on offense, outshooting the Capitals 39-25. But the Blue Jackets squandered four power plays, two of them late in the final period.Braden Holtby made 37 saves, and John Carlson and Tom Wilson added goals as Washington rallied to break a two-game skid and hang onto first place in the Metropolitan Division.Backstrom gave the credit to Holtby.”In the third there where we needed him the most, he really stepped up and showed why he’s the best goalie in the league,” Backstrom said. ”That’s just the way he is. When you need him the most, that’s when he steps up.”Bobrovsky had 22 saves for the Blue Jackets, who have lost four in a row and nine of 11. They’re still in playoff contention, but so are all the teams in the division.”A kick in the stomach Mikael Granlund Jersey ,” coach John Tortorella said. ”That one hurts.”Washington (31-17-5) won the first leg of a home-and-home this week with Columbus (27-22-4).David Savard got his fourth goal of the season 1:58 into the game with a rocket from the high slot that beat Holtby.It took the Caps only about three minutes to even the score, taking advantage of one of the worst penalty-killing teams in the NHL. Carlson got his eighth of the season on a power play with a hard one-timer from beyond the right circle.Wilson gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead five minutes into the second. Skating fast into the slot, he got a crisp pass from Alex Ovechkin and tapped a backhand between Bobrovsky’s pads before the goalie could get all the way down to the ice.On the other end, Holtby was solid. The Blue Jackets outshot Washington 17-7 in the second period. They went hard to the net repeatedly but were unable to get the puck to bounce their way.Holtby kept them in it, and Backstrom won it.”That was more of the playoff, determined feel that we want from our hockey club, and the way we want to play the game,” Oshie said. ”They tied it up late and no one (hung) their head. We lined up for the next faceoff and away we went. It’s a good feeling to have.”Tortorella said he liked the way his team played and sees signs that it is coming around.”We just have to keep our composure and keep on finding our game, because our game is coming,” he said. ”I think we’re close.”NOTES: Josh Anderson and Wilson threw off their gloves and slugged each other briefly until Anderson went to the ice in the first period. Both got five minutes in the box. … Backstrom is the fifth player in Washington history to reach 200 goals … Evgeny Kuznetsov, with a secondary assist on Wilson’s goal, has seven points in the last five games. … D Taylor Chorney and forward Chandler Stephenson were scratches for the Capitals. … The Blue Jackets scratched D Scott Harrington and forward Markus Hannikainen.UP NEXTCapitals: Hosts Columbus on Friday.Blue Jackets: At Washington on Friday.—
