Authentic Derek Forbort Jersey Kids

Bruce Cassidy watched from afar as Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy stoned Travis Zajac on a breakaway and knew that was the kind of save teams need in the playoffs.One night later Authentic Derek Forbort Jersey Kids , the Boston coach saw up close how Tuukka Rask got his blocker on Mitch Marner’s breakaway attempt on the way to another Bruins victory.”Every team needs goaltending,” Cassidy said. ”On the road, you’re going to need a little extra at some point. We got it.”The Bruins aren’t the only team getting great goaltending at crucial moments as the first round wraps up. While Rask has them up 3-1 on Toronto, Vasilevskiy is the biggest reason Tampa Bay has the New Jersey Devils on the brink of elimination and Braden Holtby has stabilized the Washington Capitals to tie their series against Columbus going into Game 5 Saturday (3 p.m. EDT, NBC/NBCSN).After a high-scoring start to the Stanley Cup playoffs, netminders are making spectacular saves when called upon. A lot of the routine stops, too. Even though postseason scoring is up 7 percent from last (FR: un dernier joueur) year, Vegas’ Marc-Andre Fleury and San Jose’s Martin Jones combined to allow just seven goals in eight games – two four-game sweeps – to set up a second-round showdown. Rask and Vaslievskiy have each given up just nine through five games and Holtby has stopped 63 of 67 shots since replacing Philipp Grubauer in goal.”Your job obviously every game as a goaltender is to limit bad goals,” Holtby said Friday. ”Your goalie’s there to calm things down at the right minutes – make a big save here and there.”Big saves are a bigger deal this time of year than volume, considering how many harmless shots are flicked at the net from long range. Sometimes those go in, like when Boston’s Torrey Krug floated a weak shot past Frederik Andersen in Game 4 Thursday night.Few of those have happened in these playoffs against Rask, Holtby and Vasilevskiy, a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, the NHL’s top goalie award. Rask’s 2.27 goals-against average and .926 save percentage are indicative of just how solid he has been in giving the Bruins a chance to close out the Maple Leafs on Saturday (8 p.m. EDT, NBC).”He’s one of the best goalies in the world and gives us an opportunity to win every night,” Bruins winger Brad Marchand said of Rask, who won the Vezina in 2014.Rask might be salty that he wasn’t one of the three Vezina finalists, finishing behind Nashville’s Pekka Rinne, Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck and Vasilevskiy Youth Dion Phaneuf Jersey , who get a postseason trip to the awards show in Las Vegas. Vasilevskiy earned it with a strong first half of the season, struggled late and is back in form with Atlantic Division-champion Tampa Bay able advance with a win Saturday (3 p.m. EDT, NBC/NBCSN).Lightning coach Jon Cooper doesn’t think Vasilevskiy played poorly in the final quarter of the regular season as much as his team’s defensive game sagged. That has changed against the Devils, though Vasilevskiy has bailed out Tampa Bay on a few occasions.”When your team’s playing better defense it helps your goaltender out and he doesn’t have to make as many highlight-reel saves,” Cooper said. ”I think what you’re seeing in the playoffs is a group that’s been determined to play both ends of the ice, and in turn that’s helping Vasilevskiy out.”Game 4 Thursday was Holtby’s first time allowing fewer than two goals in a start since Nov. 18. But the 2016 Vezina winner insists he doesn’t feel any different than before his time off to reset his game in March.He just looks like his old self.”I think it’s got him to a place where he feels like Braden Holtby again, like he trusts his game, he trusts what he’s put in,” coach Barry Trotz said. ”He’s focused on the right things and it’s allowed him to get to a place where I think he feels very comfortable.”STEPPING UPWhen Bruins star Patrice Bergeron’s streak of 104 consecutive playoff games ended because of an undisclosed injury, unheralded Riley Nash excelled centering the top line of Marchand and David Pastrnak in Game 4 in Toronto.”He plays a two-way game,” Bruins center David Krejci said. ”He’s got good skills as well, so he fit well on that line.”Cassidy said a decision on Bergeron playing in Game 5 won’t come until Saturday. Toronto center Nazem Kadri will return from a three-game suspension for boarding Tommy Wingels.Lightning winger Ryan Callahan is a game-time decision against the Devils, who are likely to be without top defenseman Sami Vatanen.Columbus center Alexander Wennberg skated Friday and could return after missing three games after a hit to the head from Tom Wilson. Washington won’t have winger Andre Burakovsky for the rest of the series because of an upper-body injury that Trotz said requires ”minor” surgery.Without Burakovsky, Chandler Stephenson earned the promotion to the Capitals’ top line and has thrived with significant ice time alongside Nicklas Backstrom and T.J. Oshie.”It’s something you only dream of,” Stephenson said. ”Growing up watching them and then finally playing with them, it’s quite the special feeling.”CLOSE THE DEALGoing through a grueling run to the 2015 Cup Final taught Cooper a lesson about the benefits of finishing a team off in elimination games. The same goes for the banged-up Bruins because they’re on a crash course to face the Lightning in the second round.”If you have a chance to win a series early, do it,” Cooper said. ”Just to get the mental and physical rest, and then (have) all the other series go deep.”—AP Sports Writers Jimmy Golen in Boston Drew Doughty Jersey , Mitch Stacy in Columbus, Ohio, and Fred Goodall in Tampa, Florida, contributed. The New York Rangers will try and find a way to win on the road when they visit the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday at Bell Centre.The Rangers are road worriers this season with a 3-7-2 record away from home, contrasted with a 10-4-0 record at home at Madison Square Garden.The Rangers will have veteran defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk on board against the Canadiens after he and Rangers rookie coach David Quinn addressed the issue that led to Shattenkirk’s benching in the third period during a 3-0 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.Article continues below ...“Absolutely,” Quinn told Newsday when asked if the benching had been put behind them. “You’ll see him (Saturday) night.”The 29-year-old Shattenkirk was a healthy scratch on Oct. 11. The free agent signed a four-year, $26.6 million contract in the summer of 2017.Quinn and Shattenkirk have a history going back to when Quinn, then an assistant coach at Boston University, recruited Shattenkirk to play for the school. Shattenkirk said they have moved on from Thursday’s drama.“That’s something that’s handled in house, and something that we talked about today and it’s water under the bridge,” Shattenkirk told Newsday. “So we move on. We need to move on quickly — it’s just a tough emotional night, and that’s what it came down to.“He knows how to get the best out of me,” Shattenkirk said. “I know, sometimes, it can feel, as a player (FR: joueur), that he’s pushing your buttons. But it’s all for the right reasons. And I have the utmost respect for him and listen to him 100 percent of the time.”The Rangers, battling injuries in the forward ranks , called up right winger Vinni Lettieri from Hartford of the American Hockey League.Alexandar Georgiev, the first Bulgarian-born player (FR: joueur) in the NHL, will get the start in goal for the Rangers. The 22-year-old is 4-3-0 this season and is coming off a 29-save shutout in his last (FR: un dernier joueur) start against the New York Islanders on Nov. 21.The Canadiens (11-9-5) have their own issues. They have lost five in a row (0-3-2), their longest losing streak of the season, though they might have deserved better. They are coming off a 2-1 loss at home to the Carolina Hurricanes in which they had 93 shot attempts.“We were able to have two good practices yesterday and today and the chemistry is still good,” Canadiens forward Phillip Danault told the team’s website. “We’re not going to change our attitude or our system because we lost a game. We haven’t had any bad games. We haven’t played very badly. We for sure have some things to work on, but we’ve done some good things, too.”“We didn’t play badly against the Hurricanes,” Canadiens forward Jonathan Drouin told “It’s true we’ve lost five straight games, but we’ve always had a chance to win. It’s 82 games. We have to continue working and not giving up.”Canadiens captain Shea Weber will play his second game of the season after offseason knee and ankle surgery. He had 13 shot attempts in his season debut against the Hurricanes.“A good two days of practice, for sure. I’d probably just rather play a bunch of games, get back into games,” Weber told “It’s good to practice and get things going that way, but I’ve had time to practice before and it wasn’t the same as a game. The game situations, you have to get in those and live those to get it back.”
