ANAHEIM Ondrej Kase Jersey , Calif.

I just tried to put the puck on net and it went in,” Schmaltz said.Anaheim, which had a season-high 41 shots on goal, dropped its fifth straight despite two goals from Ondrej Kase and a career-best three assists from Nick Ritchie.The Coyotes trailed 4-2 less than nine minutes into the second but tied it before the period was over.

There was resiliency throughout the entire game which helped us be successful,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said.Daniel Sprong and Adam Henrique also scored for the Ducks, and Gibson made 25 saves.“We were too loose defensively. We had three two-goal leads, and you should be able to finish it out,” Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle said.Kase opened the scoring 46 seconds into the game when he flipped a backhand past Hill on a breakaway. It was the second-quickest goal for Anaheim to start a game this season.The teams then traded power-play goals on one-timers.Sprong gave the Ducks a two-goal advantage when he took a pass from Jakob Silfverberg less than 14 minutes in for his fourth of the season and the first power-play goal of his NHL career. Ekman-Larsson got Arizona on the board with 17 seconds remaining in the first on a two-man advantage when he scored from the faceoff circle off a feed from Galchenyuk for his fifth.Henrique got his eighth when he converted a turnover deep in the Coyotes end for his eighth 12 seconds into the second. Arizona answered eight minutes later when Fischer took a wild carom off the boards that Gibson was unable to corral and fired it into the net while falling to the ice.Kase got his second goal 12 minutes into the second when he was in front and redirected Ritchie’s shot for his 11th. But the Coyotes rallied to tie it with a pair of goals 39 seconds apart when Cousins and Chychrun both beat Gibson up high.NOTES: Arizona has taken two of three in the season series, with two meetings remaining in March. … Conor Garland, who had an assist, and Galchenyuk each have a point in four straight games.

LOS ANGELES (AP) A strong power play and penalty kill can carry a team deep into the Stanley Cup playoffs. Right now Womens Ryan Getzlaf Jersey , the Los Angeles Kings hope their special teams can do what it takes just to reach the postseason.Anze Kopitar scored one of his team’s three power-play goals, Jonathan Quick made 23 saves and the Kings moved back into playoff position with a 3-0 win over the Calgary Flames on Monday night.”Obviously, scoring three power-play goals goes a long way,” Kopitar said. ”I guess this time of year it doesn’t really matter how you do it but you’ve got to figure out ways to win, and we did that tonight.”Jeff Carter also scored and Dion Phaneuf had a goal and an assist for the Kings, who tied Anaheim for third place in the Pacific Division at 91 points. They also passed Colorado (90 points) and St. Louis (89) in the Western Conference wild-card race.Phaneuf gave the Kings a 1-0 lead 4:04 into the second period, scoring on a long shot from the blue line five seconds into a power play. All four of Phaneuf’s goals since being acquired from Ottawa in a Feb. 13 trade have come on the man advantage.Adrian Kempe got the lone assist for winning the faceoff against Troy Brouwer, and Tyler Toffoli set a screen that kept goalie Mike Smith from seeing Phaneuf’s shot.”The key on power play, if you get people to the net and you get opportunities for lanes to the net and you shoot the puck early http://www.officialducks.com/authentic-a...ler-jersey , it really forces the penalty killers to turn and face their net,” Kings coach John Stevens said. ”Once Dion shot the first one there, it really had a ripple effect where guys were looking to move the puck quick and get it to the net.”Kopitar made it 2-0 at 11:55 with his seventh power-play goal of the season. Scoring on a wrist shot from the left circle, Kopitar matched his career high of 34 goals during the 2009-10 season.

Calgary has been outscored 28-7 during a six-game losing streak.”It’s tough to create against LA at the best of times, but I thought we limited them. Again, 5-on-5, there weren’t many chances out there. Just the specialty teams came into play Ryan Miller Jersey ,” Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said.Already without forwards Sean Monahan and Matthew Tkachuk because of injury, the depleted Flames had to play without top scorer Johnny Gaudreau, who was not with the team after his father had a cardiac event on Monday.The lack of scoring punch beyond those three, who have combined to score 78 of Calgary’s 203 goals, is something the Flames will have to address to get back into the playoff chase next season, Gulutzan said.”You can see that we’re a little bit dependent on some of our top guys to create most of our offense, and that’s an issue that is coming to light a little bit,” Gulutzan said.NOTES: Kings D Jake Muzzin did not return after sustaining an upper-body injury in the second period. Muzzin fell awkwardly into the boards following a hit by Micheal Ferland. … Dustin Brown had two assists.UP NEXTFlames: Host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.Kings: Host the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night.—
