NEWARK Los Angeles Kings T-Shirts Authentic , N.J. (AP) — Brett Connolly has been doing his best Alex Ovechkin imitation the past six weeks and it is coming just in time to help the defending champion Washington Capitals gear up for another Stanley Cup run.Connolly sparked a three-goal second period and the Capitals moved into first place in the Metropolitan Division with a 4-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.“I have been playing the best hockey probably of my career right now,” the 26-year-old forward said after scoring his career-best 20th goal. “I just really want to focus on being good going into the postseason. We have a good team and we are right there again. We’re getting close to the level we need to be at.”Since returning from the All-Star break, Connolly has 11 goals. The only other player on the Caps with that many is Ovechkin.Connolly snapped a 1-all tie at 5:57 of the middle period, redirecting Christian Djoss’ cross-ice pass into an open net past rookie goaltender Mackenzie Blackwood.“I went right to ‘Juicer’ and gave him a big hug. He made a great play on the goal,” said Connolly, who also said he would not attend the Capitals’ White House trip on Monday in support of a player no longer with the team. “It’s been a good season. We have a lot of good players and good guys. It’s a good fit for me here and we’ll see what happens in the future.”Capitals coach Todd Reirden said Connolly has had a strong season.“Extremely consistent, confident, playing his best hockey,” Reirden said. “He gets an assist as well. It was just a matter of time until he got 20. He has put himself in good spots to create offense and his mind thinks offensively Los Angeles Kings Hoodies Authentic , putting himself in dangerous areas. He’s got a good shot and quick release and that will be key for us moving forward and having depth throughout our lineup.”Evgeny Kuznetsov and Tom Wilson also scored in the second as the Capitals won for the 10th time in 13 games. Andre Burakovsky got the other goal and backup goalie Pheonix Copley made 20 saves in winning his sixth straight since the All-Star break.Washington started the day tied with the Islanders for first place in the division, but took over with the win and New York’s 5-0 loss to Boston. The Capitals and Islanders each have nine games left in the regular season.Kenny Agostino scored for the third time in five games for New Jersey. MacKenzie Blackwood made 18 saves as the Devils lost to the Capitals for the third time in four meetings this season.Kuznetsov gave Washington a two-goal lead at 12:16, beating Blackwood on a 2-on-1 break for his 19th goal.Wilson got his 21st a little more than a minute later with his shot hitting off the rookie goaltender’s pad and going into the net.Nicklas Backstrom got his 50th assist on the play. The Swede is the only NHL player with 50 assists in each of the last six seasons.Devils captain Andy Greene said all three goals were preventable. The first came off a faceoff. The second was an odd-man rush and the last one was a line rush.“Against that team, that’s their biggest strength, minus their power play, are the chances they create off the line rush,” Greene said. “Just gift-wrapped three of them and that’s all that team needs right there and they’re able to lock it down pretty well.”New Jersey had tied the game with a second left in the first period when Agostino took advantage of a Washington turnover and beat Copley with a low shot to the corner of the net.Burakovsky opened the scoring at 2:52 of the first with a perfect shot from the left circle to the upper corner of the net.NOTES: The Capitals gave 38-year-old defenseman Brooks Orpik his first night off since Feb. 1. Djoos replaced him after sitting out the previous 10 games. … Devils leading goal scorer Kyle Palmieri was hurt in the first period and did not return. … Washington has not lost consecutive games since Jan. 22-23. …. Referee Jake Brenk was shaken up in the third period when a Capitals player crashed into his right knee. … The Capitals are 16-6-2 against Metropolitan Division opponents. They have earned a point against New Jersey in 14 of 15 games (12-1-2).UP NEXTCapitals: Host the Lightning on Wednesday night. Tampa Bay beat Washington 6-3 on Saturday.Devils: Host the Boston Bruins on Thursday night. DENVER (AP) — Despite giving up a late lead, Colorado still wound up ahead.Nathan MacKinnon’s shootout goal lifted the Avalanche over the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Friday night and they tightened their grip on the second Western Conference wild-card berth.MacKinnon and Derick Brassard also had power-play goals in regulation for Colorado, which extended its lead over Arizona to three points in the race for the wild-card berth. Both teams have four games remaining.Oliver Ekman-Larsson had both goals for the Coyotes Los Angeles Kings Hats Authentic , including the tying goal with 51 seconds remaining in regulation. Neither team could score in the extra period, leading to the shootout.“That was a bit frustrating to give them a point, but I mean, we got two points and that’s the biggest thing,” Colorado’s Tyson Barrie said. “That kind of, again, puts us in control of our own destiny.”The Avalanche also got 42 saves from Philipp Grubauer, who also stopped all three shots by Arizona in the shootout. Colorado has won six of its last seven games, including the past four at home.“It was a little bit closer than we wanted it to be Custom Los Angeles Kings Jerseys ,” Grubauer said. “We need to stay on the gas a little bit in the last period. It’s quite a bit loud in here going into the last period with a lead and giving up a lot of shots. But on the other side, we’re doing a great job defending, too. A little bit more interesting than we needed it to be, but it was good.“Huge two points.”Arizona’s loss clinched Western Conference playoff spots for both St. Louis and Vegas — both of whom lost Friday night, but still were able to celebrate postseason berths.Trailing 2-0, Arizona got on the board with eight minutes remaining when Ekman-Larsson scored on a slap shot from the left point that beat Grubauer.The Coyotes tied it with 51 seconds remaining in regulation on Ekman-Larsson’s second goal of the night, a wrist shot from inside the left circle.“We said that we have to keep working hard and that’s all we can do and maybe we’ll get back in the game,” Ekman-Larsson said. “That’s what we did, and I think that could be a huge point at the end of the day , so we’ll take that one and move forward and hopefully get in the playoffs, but it’s going to be a little bit harder now.”The teams battled through a scoreless first period before the Avalanche broke through for a score while on the power play at 13:37 of the second. Gabriel Landeskog, playing for the first time since suffering a shoulder injury in early March, shot a pass across the crease to MacKinnon, who knocked the puck past Darcy Kuemper, squeezing it under the goalie’s stick.It was the fourth game in a row in which the Avalanche scored a power-play goal.Colorado made it 2-0 with 4 seconds left in the second period on another power-play score. Kuemper rebuffed a series of shots by the Avalanche, but Brassard got hold of a loose puck between the circles and fired it back into the net for his 14th goal of the season.NOTES: Landeskog missed the previous nine games after suffering a shoulder separation March 7 at Dallas. … The seven straight starts by Grubauer are a career high. … It was Ekman-Larsson’s ninth career multi-goal game and his first of the season.UP NEXTCoyotes: Return home to host Minnesota on Sunday.Avalanche: Visit St. Louis on Monday night.
