BUFFALO Carter Rowney Jersey Womens , N.Y. (AP) —Toronto Maple Leafs were showing signs of turning the corner.Auston Matthews and John Tavares delivered on their coach’s belief.The high-scoring duo each had a goal and assist, and the Maple Leafs won for just the second time in six games, beating the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 on Wednesday night.“I thought we played real well last night and weren’t rewarded in the end,” Babcock said, referring to Toronto coming off a 3-0 loss at Nashville.“And I thought we played real well here tonight and were rewarded,” he added. “I liked that we played hard and did things well and stuck together.”The Maple Leafs didn’t wilt despite trailing 1-0 after an opening period in which they outshot Buffalo 19-7. And they responded by scoring three consecutive goals, including Tavares and Marner scoring 1:50 apart, spanning the second intermission.“The little slump we’ve been in late, it’s frustrating for everybody. You try to stay positive,” Matthews said. “Everybody was prepared tonight despite the back to back, and everybody came out flying.”Mitchell Marner and Zach Hyman, into an empty net Luke Schenn Jersey Womens , also scored and the Maple Leafs inched to within four points of the idle Boston Bruins in the race for second place in the Atlantic Division standings. Garret Sparks stopped 22 shots for Toronto, which was playing on consecutive nights after a 3-0 loss at Nashville.Casey Mittelstadt and Alexander Nylander scored for Buffalo, which dropped to 1-7-1 in its past nine. Coming off a 4-3 shootout win over St. Louis on Sunday, the Sabres have gone 41 games since winning consecutive outings. It’s a stretch dating to Dec. 11-13, during which Buffalo dropped to 12-24-5.“It’s obviously frustrating here on home ice,” goalie Carter Hutton said. “We get a big win and then we can’t answer the bell here today.”Hutton was solid by making 42 saves in a game Toronto outshot Buffalo 46-24.The lack of consistency has raised questions regarding Sabres coach Phil Housley’s job security just two seasons into his tenure.Housley wasn’t looking beyond Buffalo’s loss to Toronto.“Just tonight, if I’m looking at tonight, I’m very, very disappointed in our game, because it’s a rivalry and we knew the magnitude of the game, and we didn’t execute,” Housley said.Last year Womens Niklas Hjalmarsson Jersey , Buffalo became the NHL’s first team to finish 31st following the addition of expansion Vegas Golden Knights. This year, the Sabres have unraveled over the past four months and are in jeopardy of becoming the league’s second team to miss the playoffs in a season in which they won 10 straight games.Tavares scored the go-ahead goal with 1:28 left in the second period by converting a puck that pingponged into the crease. William Nylander’s shot from the right circle struck the crossbar, then the post, and bounced to the left of the net, where it struck Buffalo captain Jack Eichel’s knee and ricocheted back into the crease, where Tavares tapped it in.Tavares then set up Marner’s goal 22 seconds into the third period with a no-look backhand pass from the left boards. Marner was untouched in driving to the slot, where he snapped a shot under Hutton’s blocker.Sparks was coming off a 38-save performance in a 6-2 loss at Ottawa on Saturday, and suggested the Leafs needed to show more emotion.Before the game, Babcock, agreed with the notion that Sparks’ comments might place more pressure on the backup goalie.As for his expectations, Babcock said he wanted Sparks to focus on his own game.“Any time you’re looking for any other help in life, it usually doesn’t go your way Zach Bogosian Jersey Womens ,” Babcock said. “So just own what you do and play as hard as you can tonight. We’re going to play hard for Sparky, and he’s going to play well.”NOTES: Rasmus Dahlin’s assist on Mittelstadt’s goal upped the rookie’s total to 38 points and moved him ahead of Bobby Orr for second-most by an NHL defenseman before his 19th birthday. … The only player ahead of Dahlin is Housley, who had 57 points as an 18-year-old with Buffalo in 1982-83. … Toronto swept the four-game season series over Buffalo and improved to 22-11-4 on the road — one win shy of matching the franchise record set in 2003-04.UP NEXTMaple Leafs: Host New York Rangers on Saturday.Sabres: Open three-game road trip at Montreal Canadiens on Saturday. COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) The Blue Jackets only had Seth Jones for two periods. It turned out to be more than enough.Jones was the driving force behind two first-period power-play goals, and Columbus won its fifth straight, 5-2 over the Montreal Canadiens on Monday night.”We’re taking it game by game even with this winning streak,” said Alexander Wennberg, who tied a career high with four points on a goal and three assists. ”We’re playing good, we don’t get too far ahead of ourselves. You just face the challenge.”Nick Foligno, Boone Jenner and Ian Cole also scored for Columbus.Behind a run of eight wins in 11 games overall and a season-high six straight at home – including a just-completed four-game homestand – the Blue Jackets moved past idle New Jersey into the first wild-card position in the Eastern Conference. Columbus also edged within two points of third-place Philadelphia, its next opponent, in the Metropolitan Division.”We’ve got a huge one coming up in Philly Scott Wedgewood Jersey Womens ,” Foligno said.Jones sat out the third period with an upper-body injury, and Montreal suddenly put Sergei Bobrovsky to the test. The two-time Vezina Trophy winner stopped all 24 shots the suddenly energetic Canadiens threw his way. He had 38 saves overall.”We lose Jonsey, which is a big part of or tempo and our transition,” coach John Tortorella said. ”You know it’s going that way when we don’t score our goals. We have a number of great chances to make it five. You know what the third period is going to be. They are going to take every chance they possibly can. But I still thought we were on our heels too much.”Tortorella said Jones pleaded his case to play in the third.Brendan Gallagher and Jonathan Drouin scored for banged-up Montreal, which has lost five straight and has three wins in its past 16 games.The Canadiens have been playing without Carey Price, Max Pacioretty and Shea Weber. Charlie Lindgren was weak on his glove side, finishing with 20 stops while battling traffic in front.A bright spot for Montreal came early. Gallagher scored the fastest goal against Columbus this season to start a game, only 34 seconds in. He redirected a high shot alone at the crease for his team-leading 25th.”The first shift, a turnover and they score it,” Tortorella said. ”It didn’t affect us. We just kept on playing.”Columbus tallied the next three to close out the period.Foligno countered four minutes later on a steal in the Canadiens’ zone. His backdoor pass to Oliver Bjorkstrand ping-ponged off two Montreal players and skidded into the net.Jones then helped add two more for the Blue Jackets, giving him four goals – three of them game-winners – and three assists in his last three games. He set up Wennberg’s tip-in goal at 7:51 and scored his own at 14:03, his 14th this season. Jones’ 48 points are three short of the franchise record for a blueliner Conor Sheary Jersey Womens , set in 2013-14 by James Wisniewski.”I’d like to see our guys do a much better job when it comes to fronting pucks,” Montreal coach Claude Julien said. ”Lindy had a bit of a tough night, and your best penalty killer can also be your goaltender.”Early in the second period, not long after Zach Werenski saved a goal by swiping away the puck before it could cross the goal line, Jenner stuffed home his own rebound, the entire play nicely set up by Wennberg.Drouin scored on a breakaway – spurned by a blocked shot – at 15:46 of the second with a backhander to pull the Canadiens within two.Cole capped the scoring with a floating wrister with 2:19 left in the game.”We just feel good about ourselves and the way we’re playing hockey,” Jenner said. ”You can see tonight if we play the way we can, we can kind of dominate teams.”NOTES: Columbus scored its three first-period goals on its first seven shots. … Jones has a goal in three straight games. He scored twice Friday against Detroit. … The Canadiens dropped to 9-22-4 on the road. … Montreal wrapped up its six-game trip with a 1-4-1 mark and allowed nine power-play goals.UP NEXTColumbus: At Philadelphia on Thursday.Montreal: Hosts Dallas on Tuesday.—
