CHICAGO — Marc-Andre Fleury’s play
in net will go a long way toward determining if the Vegas Golden Knights are going to repeat last season’s success.Of course http://www.redwingsshoponline.com/authen...een-jersey , if the Golden Knights can produce offensively at a reasonable clip, it won’t hurt.Vegas will carry a three-game winning streak into Tuesday’s road test against the Chicago Blackhawks, who have struggled to establish any sort of rhythm this year coming off their first playoff-free season in more than a decade.Article continues below ...Fleury has recorded back-to-back shutouts, an accomplishment even more impressive considering the veteran goalie did it on consecutive nights. His latest standout performance came in a 6-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks on Saturday when Vegas scored four first-period goals and then coasted behind Fleury, who made 33 saves after shutting out the Calgary Flames on Friday.“I was feeling good, composed, related,” Fleury told reporters after Saturday’s victory, according to the Las Vegas Sun. “I think we’ve been starting to play a bit (more) our style, how we can play and how we should play Womens Nick Jensen Jersey , and it’s been playing off greatly.”The back-to-back shutouts marked the first time in Fleury’s career he has accomplished the feat on consecutive nights and the third time he has held an opposing team without a goal in back-to-back games. William Karlsson got Vegas (12-12-1) on the board just 14 seconds into the game and the Knights used Fleury’s effort to extend their winning streak.Vegas coach Gerald Gallant said he didn’t mind playing Fleury on back-to-back nights after Fleury didn’t face much pressure on Friday against the Flames. Now, after two days off heading into Tuesday’s game at the United Center, Gallant knows Fleury will be plenty rested to face Chicago.“It makes it easy when you got a guy like Fleury,” Gallant told reporters, according to the Sun. “He had enough work against Calgary, but it wasn’t like he had 50 shots and he had to make outstanding saves back-to-back. We thought he was rested, he felt good, and that made the decision easy for you, especially when he had the shutout the last game.”Like Vegas, the Blackhawks are coming off back-to-back games and a victory after Chicago (9-10-5) picked up a 5-4 victory over the Florida Panthers.The victory Thomas Vanek Jersey , secured by Erik Gustafsson’s overtime goal, snapped Chicago’s eight-game road losing streak and provided the Blackhawks with their third win in their past six games.The victory also preceded the Blackhawks trading Nick Schmaltz to the Arizona Coyotes for a pair of former first-round picks in forward Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini. Schmaltz told reporters that he was shocked by the trade despite struggling with just two goals and nine assists.General Manager Stan Bowman told reporters on Monday that he believes adding Strome and Perlini improves Chicago’s depth as the Blackhawks continue to try to adjust to the style of coach Jeremy Colliton.“We got two NHL players on our team for one,” Bowman told reporters, according to NHL.com. “You have to give to get. We’re not going to get two really good players like that by not trading away a really good one.”Bowman likes what the new additions bring to the ice.“Watching both Brendan and Dylan play, I think there are a lot of attributes to their game that are going to translate well to how we want to play,” Bowman said. “They bring some size, they’re both big guys.” DETROIT (AP) — Johnny Gaudreau capped a memorable day with another splendid performance.Gaudreau had a goal and three assists, and the Calgary Flames rallied for a 5-3 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night. Earlier in the day, Gaudreau was named the NHL’s second star for the month of December — and he was part of the Pacific Division All-Star roster, which was also released Wednesday.“This was obviously a pretty wild day Nick Foligno Jersey ,” Gaudreau said. “Winning was the best part, though.”Detroit led 2-0 after one period, but the Flames came back to hand the Red Wings their sixth straight loss. Sean Monahan, TJ Brodie, Elias Lindholm and Michael Frolik also scored for Calgary.Darren Helm, Jacob de la Rose and Andreas Athanasiou scored for Detroit.Gaudreau put the Flames ahead 4-3 midway through the third with a power-play goal after a slick play by Matthew Tkachuk, who stickhandled below the goal line and then slipped a pass between goalie Jimmy Howard and the side of the net. Gaudreau was in front to tap in the puck for his 22nd goal of the season.“We knew we had to be a lot better in the second and third periods, but we have the confidence to know we could do that,” said Gaudreau, who kept right on rolling after finishing with 11 goals and 15 assists in December.Frolik scored into an empty net with 17.7 seconds remaining.“I thought we got better as it went Authentic Oliver Bjorkstrand Jersey ,” Flames coach Bill Peters said. “It wasn’t a Picasso, but we’ll take the two points.”The Flames have 54 points, most in the Western Conference.Helm, who missed the previous 21 games with an upper-body injury, marked his return with a goal in the first period. He and Athanasiou came in on a 2-on-1 break. Rather than passing, Helm dragged the puck past a sliding defenseman, switched to his backhand and beat goalie Mike Smith.The Red Wings made it 2-0 on a goalmouth scramble. Detroit’s Michael Rasmussen hacked at the puck, and it bounced off de la Rose and in.Calgary rallied in the second. Monahan made it 2-1 with his 22nd goal of the season, and Brodie tied it when his routine shot from the point bounced off Howard’s glove and in with 2:01 left in the period.“It should never go in, so it’s on me Ryan Murray Jersey ,” said Howard, who is among the Atlantic Division All-Stars.Brodie’s goal started a wild stretch in which three goals were scored in just more than a minute. Athanasiou had a step on Oliver Kylington when the Calgary defenseman hooked him. Officials awarded a penalty shot that Athanasiou converted for his 14th goal of the season.The Flames quickly tied it at 3 when Lindholm beat Howard with a wrist shot on the power play with just under a minute left in the period.“You get to points where you’re fragile. We can pretend that’s not true but that’s not what happened,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. “We have control over that, have control of playing shift by shift, believing in ourselves, carrying ourselves with confidence, making the plays at the big moments instead of the other way.”Detroit’s Dylan Larkin had his 14-game point streak snapped.NOTES: The Red Wings put D Trevor Daley on injured reserve with a foot problem and recalled D Brian Lashoff from Grand Rapids of the AHL. Lashoff did not play. … Athanasiou’s goal was his 100th career point.UP NEXTFlames: At Boston on Thursday night.Red Wings: Host Nashville on Friday night.
