PHILADELPHIA (AP) Dave Hakstol is more worried about two points than a pretty performance right now. That said Adidas Jack Roslovic Jersey , the Philadelphia Flyers coach and his team have some work to do before the playoffs begin.Travis Konecny scored twice, Claude Giroux had three assists and Philadelphia beat the New York Rangers 4-3 on Thursday night to pick up an important two points and stay atop the wild-card standings in the Eastern Conference.Jakub Voracek had a goal and an assist and Oskar Lindblom also scored for the Flyers (38-25-12, 88 points), who won for just the fourth time in 12 games to remain within one point of streaking Columbus for third place in the Metropolitan Division. The Blue Jackets beat Florida 4-0 on Thursday for their 10th straight victory.Philadelphia is six points in front of New Jersey, which was idle Thursday and owns the second wild-card spot. Florida is seven points back of the Flyers but has three more games remaining than Philadelphia, which has seven contests left.”We were just sporadic,” Hakstol said. ”There are things we have to clean up and do a little bit better, but the bottom line is the two points at the end of the night.”Jesper Fast had two goals and an assist and Mika Zibanejad also scored for the Rangers, who are playing out the string after being active sellers at the trading deadline.”I thought there was a lot of fight and compete in our team tonight,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said.With the Flyers’ top two goalies sidelined by injury, and Petr Mrazek, who Philadelphia acquired to fill in, ineffective of late, Hakstol went with little-used rookie Alex Lyon. In his 10th career game, Lyon made 33 saves to improve to 4-2-1.”He doesn’t quit on shots Adidas Laurent Brossoit Jersey ,” Giroux said. ”He’s very solid.”Lindblom scored eight seconds into the third period to give Philadelphia a 4-2 advantage. Nolan Patrick took the initial shot, and the rebound fell in front to the rookie Lindblom, who backhanded in his second goal.”We did a good job of grinding it out,” Giroux said.Fast scored a similar goal for the Rangers, backhanding a rebound of Rob O’Gara’s shot 1:14 later to make it 4-3. It was the second goal of the game for Fast, who extended his point streak to seven games (three goals, six assists).Lyon’s best save came with 13 1/2 minutes remaining when he robbed Chris Kreider with a lunging stop with his right shoulder. He also made an excellent save with 12 minutes left in the second period on Zibanejad’s 2-on-1 chance.”Saves like that are big,” Hakstol said.Rangers rookie Alexandar Georgiev started in goal in place of Henrik Lundqvist (neck/back), who was injured with five minutes left in Monday’s 5-3 loss to Columbus. Georgiev made 32 saves.Voraeck muscled through three Rangers to break a 1-all tie 3:46 into the second period, shooting high over Georgiev’s glove.Konecny scored his second of the night on a deflection of Radko Gudas‘ shot from the point with 11:22 left in the second to put the Flyers up 3-1.But the Flyers’ second-year forward found himself on the bench for the last 7:20 of the contest because Hakstol didn’t like the way Konecny was protecting the puck.”Individuals have to be better in how we manage the puck,” Hakstol said.Fast pulled the Rangers within a goal with 2:57 remaining in the period when he sent the puck toward the net from the corner and it deflected off defenseman Ivan Provorov and past Lyon’s left pad.Konecny netted his 21st of the season, a wrist shot from the slot past Georgiev’s glove side, to give Philadelphia a 1-0 lead 7:56 into the contest.Zibanejad continued his recent hot streak and tied the game at 1 with 6:07 left in the first when he got in alone on Lyon and beat him through the five-hole to extend his point streak to six games (7 goals, 3 assists).NOTES: Injured Flyers goalies Michal Neuvirth (lower body) and Brian Elliott (core muscle surgery) did drills during Thursday’s morning skate. Neuvirth is aiming to return during the Flyers’ upcoming three-game road trip while Elliott is about two weeks from returning. … Provorov played in his 157th straight game to start his career, breaking the club record for most consecutive contests by a Flyers newcomer. … The teams wrap up the season series in the regular-season finale for both on April 7 in Philadelphia. The Flyers lead the series 2-1.UP NEXTRangers: Host Buffalo on Saturday night.Flyers: Start three-game road trip at Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon.— CALGARY Anaheim Ducks T-Shirts Womens , Alberta (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau matched a career-high with four points, all in the first period, and found a spot in the Calgary Flames‘ record book.Gaudreau’s goal and three assists, along with Matthew Tkachuk’s two goals and two assists, helped the Flames take over top spot in the Pacific Division with a 7-2 rout of the Vegas Golden Knights on Monday night.Calgary is even in points with the San Jose Sharks, but have one more regulation/overtime win.“He’s a dynamic player and he’s a very creative player and he sees it,” Flames coach Bill Peters said of Gaudreau. “There’s not a whole bunch of them that have the ability to slow the game down and buy time for guys to get open and he’s got it.”Calgary blew the game open early, jumping out to a 5-0 lead in the first period. Gaudreau became the 10th player in franchise history, and first since Olli Jokinen on Feb. 14, 2011, to register four points in a period.Gaudreau’s handiwork began 2:36 into the game when he set up Tkachuk, who also matched his career best in points. Tkachuk whipped a 20-foot wrist shot past Malcolm Subban for a power-play goal.Gaudreau made it 2-0 at 6:49, ripping a shot over Subban’s glove to complete a tic-tac-to passing sequence with linemates Elias Lindholm and Monahan.“Smart play by a smart player,” said Gaudreau, describing Lindholm’s play that began the sequence. “He’s 20 to 30 feet ahead of us and he has a one-on-two Anaheim Ducks Hoodies Womens , pulls up, finds (Monahan), next thing you know it’s a two-on-two then I’m coming in the play and it’s a three-on-two. For him to have that awareness, he’s pretty smart.”Gaudreau pounced on a turnover in the Vegas slot and set up Monahan’s one-timer for a 3-0 lead at 10:59, then capped off his record-tying period by setting up Monahan’s second of the period and team-leading 12th goal.“He’s a big-time threat to take the puck to the net and then when he pulls up and delays, you’ve got guys with good timing coming late, that’s when you see all those seam passes and East-West passes,” Peters said. “All of a sudden, the goaltender is out playing the shooter and it’s a long lateral pass and he can’t get across.”TJ Brodie and Sam Bennett rounded out the scoring for Calgary (12-8-1), which plays Vegas again on Friday.Nick Holden and Max Pacioretty scored third-period goals for the Golden Knights, who were coming off a 6-3 win in Edmonton on Sunday“It’s hard to believe that this happened tonight, the way we played last night but that’s hockey,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “It’s pretty disappointing and I hope they’re disappointed because they didn’t show up.”For the Flames, who lead the league with six third-period comebacks, Monahan says it was nice to play from in front for a change.“It’s fun Anaheim Ducks Hats Womens , obviously, when you’re putting the puck in the net and you’re winning like that. That’s the best part of hockey,” said Monahan. “This is a team, I think we needed a win like that.”Second-year Czech goaltender David Rittich made 20 saves to improve to 7-1-0. It was the second start in a row for the 26-year-old Rittich, who is getting more playing time with veteran Mike Smith struggling.Subban went the distance for Vegas, finishing with 25 stops. After going 13-4-2 as a rookie last season, Subban has lost all four starts this season.“I don’t have any answers for you right now, but we’re supposed to be a fast team and it’s probably the slowest we played all year,” Vegas winger Reilly Smith said.NOTES: Flames RW James Neal has gone without a point in his last seven games and is stuck at 499 career points. He has just four points (one goal, three assists) in 21 games since signing a five-year, $28.75 million contract in the summer.UP NEXTGolden Knights: At Arizona on Wednesday night.Flames: Host Winnipeg on Wednesday night.
