DETROIT — The Detroit Red Wings are coming off their first win of the season [url=http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-casey-cizikas-jersey]http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-casey-cizikas-jersey[/url] , while the Carolina Hurricanes have lost three straight.Detroit hosts Carolina on Monday night at Little Caesars Arena.The Red Wings (1-5-2) finally got into the “W” column with a 4-3 overtime victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday night at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla. Right winger Gustav Nyquist got the winner 3:44 into the extra period on a breakaway for his first goal of the season.Article continues below …“It felt good to score there, for sure,” Nyquist said after the game. “To get that first one out of the way, hopefully we can build off this one.”It is the first time since 1985-86 (0-8-1) that Detroit failed to win in its first seven games.“The Red Wings a week ago would have drooped on the bench and the energy on the bench would have been terrible,” center Dylan Larkin said. “But it wasn’t like that. We battled.”The Hurricanes (4-3-1) fell 3-1 to the Colorado Avalanche in Raleigh on Saturday night.“You don’t want to let things snowball and go the wrong way,” Hurricanes right winger Justin Williams said after the loss. “The trick is to not let it become bigger than it is. Nip it. As long as we approach it that way, we’ll be fine.”Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said his team is playing better than recent results would indicate.“You just don’t want the losses to bleed and make it feel like, ‘Oh, my God, we’re not playing that well.’ Really, in my opinion, we’re playing pretty well,” he said. “We’re getting good efforts out of most of our guys [url=http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-adam-pelech-jersey]Adam Pelech Jersey Womens[/url] , and a bounce here or there and we’re talking about a whole different situation.”Carolina right winger Sebastian Aho is tied for fifth in the NHL with 13 points (four goals and nine assists) and had an assist against Colorado to extend his season-opening point streak to eight games, tying Victor Rask’s run in 2016-17 for the longest in Hurricanes history.Aho also has 26 goals and 51 assists for 77 points in his last 52 regular-season games, a pace that would give him 121 points over a full 82-game regular season.Larkin and Nyquist, who each had a goal and an assist Saturday night, are tied for the Detroit team lead in points with seven each. Larkin has four goals and three assists and Nyquist a goal and six assists.Rookie defenseman Dennis Cholowski also had a goal and an assist in the win. He has been impressive, playing on the Red Wings top defensive pair with two goals and five points and minus-4 in six games, while averaging 21:48 of ice time.He is one of five rookies on Detroit’s roster. The others are defensemen Joe Hicketts and Filip Hronek, and forwards Michael Rasmussen and Cristoffer Ehn.Rasmussen appeared to score his first NHL goal in the first period Saturday night on a tip in, but it was called back because it was ruled that the Red Wings interfered with Panthers goalie Michael Hutchinson. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — NHL goaltenders prepare for the unpredictable, ready for pucks deflecting off sticks, bodies, feet or a divot in the ice, past all the gear designed to help defend their net.The freaky [url=http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-thomas-hickey-jersey]Thomas Hickey Jersey Womens[/url] , fluky or simply weird goals can be laughed off by goalies who know sometimes the puck just takes a funny bounce.The goals that eat at a goalie are those he believes he could’ve — and should’ve — stopped. Not the goal allowed by Dallas goalie Anton Khudobin where the puck bounced off a Nashville forward’s back and over the net before hitting the back of the goalie’s helmet, then off his back and into the net.“It stings anytime you give up a goal,” Predators goalie Pekka Rinne said Tuesday. “That kind of goal, there’s nothing really he could’ve done. It’s a freaky goal, and I feel like those things maybe happen once, twice in a season. But yeah, the ones that hurt the most as a goalie, it’s the ones that you feel like you should’ve had it.”Stick-handling in the NHL has improved right along with players’ speed and skating thanks to offseason workouts. That also has boosted the creativity for shooters looking to do a bit more than a simple slap shot, wrister or snap shot.“There’s a lot of talent in the league, more maybe so now than there has been in years past,” Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog said. “These young guys coming up, everybody has their own skills coaches and things like that. There’s a lot of skills. I don’t doubt there’s more highlight-reel goals.”Goaltenders have to be ready for the next move dreamed up by the league’s stars to put the puck over the line. Scoring is up with the average number of goals scored per game increasing in each of the past four seasons, and the current average of 3.06 goals per game is on pace to be the highest since the 2005-06 season, according to Hockey-Reference.com .“Maybe it’s the skill of the players too [url=http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-john-tavares-jersey]John Tavares Jersey[/url] , finding that one spot,” Colorado goalie Philipp Grubauer said. “(Evgeny) Kuznetsov in Washington, he’s so sneaky in terms of what he wants to do and doesn’t want to do. He puts the puck in spots. Maybe you get a weird bounce, hit a guy’s shin pad or something like that.”The NHL also keeps downsizing goaltenders’ pads, most recently chest protectors . Grubauer sees teams also changing how they break out on offense, attacking faster and giving goalies less time.“Back in the days, you always used to go back and regroup and break out as a unit,” Grubauer said. “I feel like the last couple of years, it’s always like, (snaps fingers) and up (snaps fingers) and up.”Sometimes goalies get lucky, too.Buffalo goalie Carter Hutton appeared to be losing his balance Sunday in the first period against Winnipeg with Adam Lowry coming in on a short-handed breakaway. Hutton put his glove down at the exact moment Lowry tried to slip the puck between the goalie’s legs for the save.“You definitely get some fluky saves where you’re beat and a guy just hits you,” Hutton said.The Sabres goalie also recalls being on his goal line when the puck came up, rolled over the top of the net, hit his neck and went in. He had another puck slip past him on a penalty shot in December against Florida.“You make the initial save [url=http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-jordan-eberle-jersey]Authentic Jordan Eberle Jersey[/url] , and it lands on my pads sideways and just slowly rolls off,” Hutton said. “That’s one where if it’s during a game, a D-man’s probably there to stop it or that puck lands flat on my pad and doesn’t go in. It’s unfortunate that it lands sideways and rolls off my pad. So that’s one that I would say this year that’s been fluky.”There’s one goal so weird it’s called the Butt Goal.Defenseman Mark Pysyk, now with Florida, got his first goal of the 2013 season right before Christmas in overtime after jamming at the puck, sending it into the air and into the pants of Coyotes goalie Mike Smith who then backedinto his own net.“I didn’t think they would call it a goal, because I didn’t think they’d see it, but they did,” Pysyk said. “It was in his pants and he backed in. I think you could see me point at it. They counted it a little bit after, obviously, so I didn’t have a chance to celebrate normally. It was pretty funny.”SURPRISING ISLANDERSThe New York Islanders are atop the Metropolitan Division in coach Barry Trotz’s first season despite losing John Tavares last offseason to Toronto. They just snapped a three-game streak Tuesday night with a 3-1 loss in Buffalo but are 6-2-2 in their last 10 games and remain second overall in the Eastern Conference.To Buffalo coach Phil Housley, credit Trotz for using the same philosophy and structure from coaching in Nashville and winning the Stanley Cup with Washington last summer.“I really had a pleasure to work with him for one year and learned a lot from him,” Housley said. “You can see he’s had success wherever he’s went.”RIVALRY SERIESThe best of women’s hockey are back at it this week with the United States and Canada playing each other in a rare three-game “Rivalry Series” that ends Sunday in Detroit at the home of the Red Wings. The U.S. beat Canada nearly a year ago for Olympic gold and then won a fourth straight Four Nations Cup title last November. Kendall Coyne Schofield will be the U.S. captain for the series, which will be aired on NHL Network.“That’s something we’ve been fighting for [url=http://www.officialislanders.com/authentic-adidas-josh-bailey-jersey]Josh Bailey Jersey[/url] , is more chances for us to play against Canada,” U.S. forward Dani Cameranesi said. “It’s not that often that we get to play at the highest level. We don’t really have that many chances for that, but for them all to be … on NHL Network too and for us to get coverage on that is a really big deal.”GAME OF THE WEEKThe Washington Capitals visit the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night in a matchup of two of the NHL’s top 10 teams.LEADERS (after Tuesday games)Goals: Alex Ovechkin (Washington), 38; Assists: Nikita Kucherov (Tampa Bay), 63; Points: Kucherov, 88; Ice time: Drew Doughty (Los Angeles), 26:45; Wins: Marc-Andre Fleury (Vegas), 29; Goals-against average: Robin Lehner (N.Y. Islanders), 2.08; Save percentage: Robin Lehner, (N.Y. Islanders), .929.
