MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Canadiens put an end Antworten

MONTREAL (AP) — The Montreal Canadiens put an end to a tough losing streak Tuesday night.Tomas Tatar scored in the third period to lift Montreal over the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-2 Minnesota Wild Hats Authentic , ending a four-game skid with its first victory since Feb. 4.Paul Byron and Max Domi also scored, and Carey Price made 31 saves.“We knew, everyone knew, that this was the biggest slump of the year,” Domi said. “That one’s out of the way, now we just got to focus on the next one.”Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 29 shots, and Josh Anderson and Nick Foligno scored for Columbus.“Worked hard to get back in it. Couldn’t finish,” Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella said.The Blue Jackets were playing the second game of a back-to-back after losing to Tampa Bay on Monday night. The visitors were also without forward Artemi Panarin, who sat out due to illness.Byron scored in his return to the lineup after missing the last six games due to a forearm injury.In the second period, Domi and Foligno Custom Minnesota Wild Jerseys , both sons of former NHL enforcers, exchanged blows after Foligno hit defenseman Mike Reilly from behind.“When one of your buddies gets hit like that, you got to step in,” Domi said. “That’s part of what being a teammate is.”“(Domi) asked me, and I said, ‘If you want to fight, let’s fight,'” Foligno said. “I’m sure our dads would be proud.”Domi put the Canadiens on the board 90 seconds in. The forward powered up the wing and tried to feed Jonathan Drouin on a 2-on-1. The puck instead went off forward Eric Robinson, and Domi batted it past Bobrovsky for his 20th of the season.Byron’s goal came nearly 16 minutes later. After Jesperi Kotkaniemi’s shot went wide of the net and off the backboard, Byron was first to the puck and buried it past Bobrovsky for his 11th of the season.The Blue Jackets drew one back in the opening moments of the second period , when Anderson sniped one past Price.Foligno tied it in the third period when he put a rebound past Price. Anderson picked up his second point of the night with an assist.The Canadiens retook the lead at 13:08 of the third on Tatar’s 19th of the season. Defenseman Jordie Benn hung along the boards and fed Tatar with a pass to Bobrovsky’s right, and he quickly tapped it past the goaltender.Tatar said he was trying to find the right position on the play, but he locked into place once his eyes met Benn’s.“I got a little lost,” Tatar said. “I think Jordie looked at me and I just stopped there. He made a beautiful pass for sure.”NOTES: Byron played in his 400th career NHL game. … Blue Jackets’ forward Brandon Dubinsky suited up in his 800th career game.UP NEXTBlue Jackets: Play at Ottawa on Friday night.Canadiens: Host Philadelphia on Thursday night. The Pittsburgh Penguins and Buffalo Sabres, who meet Monday at PPG Paints Arena, seem to have switched identities this season.The Penguins, winners of the Stanley Cup two of the past three seasons, are 7-8-3, last in the Eastern Conference and mired in a 1-7-1 funk.The Sabres, doormats for several years Montreal Canadiens T-Shirts Authentic , are 12-6-2 and have won five straight.Article continues below ...The teams’ results in their most recent game on Saturday underscore the differences. Pittsburgh scored first but gave up five unanswered goals in a 6-4 loss at Ottawa. Buffalo overcame a two-goal deficit for a 3-2 win at Minnesota, the second road victory in as many nights.“It goes to show we have a different group, a different mindset and a different attitude,” said Buffalo winger Jason Pominville, who scored the winner against the Wild with 90 seconds left and also had an assist.The Sabres last won five in a row March 19-27, 2012. This is the first time since 2009-10 they have at least 26 points through 20 games.“I give a lot of credit to our guys,” Buffalo coach Phil Housley said. “It just showed the character of this team, the fight and the battle.”Only Tampa Bay and Toronto have more points in the Eastern Conference than Buffalo.Pittsburgh, conversely, has a way to go to climb back above the playoff cutoff line. The club might have a way to go just to get a couple wins.“We’re in a deep hole Montreal Canadiens Hoodies Authentic , and we have to figure it out,” Penguins defenseman Kris Letang said. “We can’t be sorry for ourselves. … We have all the skill in the world, but right now it’s not working.”No. 1 goaltender Matt Murray has been pulled in three of his past six starts, including Saturday, and his confidence is waning, according to coach Mike Sullivan.“I’m sure it is,” Sullivan said. “He’s a human being. He’s a proud guy, and he wants to do well. Sometimes when you get in these types of circumstances, you can try a little too hard and it gets in the way of your instinctual play. There’s always that fine line of trying but making sure you don’t try too hard because that can be counterproductive.”Pittsburgh team captain Sidney Crosby has missed the past two games because of an upper-body injury. He has been skating on his own and is considered day-to-day, but Pittsburgh was off Sunday and it is unknown whether he might be available Monday.Coming back home isn’t necessarily a comfort zone for the Penguins Montreal Canadiens Hats Authentic , who are 3-5-1 at PPG Paints Arena.“As a group, we’ve just got to find a way,” said winger Matt Cullen, the oldest player in the NHL at 42, who scored one of three third-period goals Saturday as the Penguins made a push that fell short against the Senators.“I think we’re better than the way we’re playing,” Cullen said. “The last period showed some fight, but from the drop of the puck we need to have more urgency in our game.“Time goes pretty quick. We find ourselves at Thanksgiving here pretty soon. We’ve got to get to our game and do it more consistently.“These are important points for us. We can’t keep missing our opportunities.”
