OTTAWA http://www.officialcanadiensprostore.com/authentic-adidas-karl-alzner-jersey , Ontario (AP)Connor McDavid had yet to score a goal. He more than made up for it on Thursday night.McDavid had two goals and two assists, and the Edmonton Oilers eliminated Ottawa from playoff contention with a 6-2 win on Thursday night.”He just took the game over,” Ottawa coach Guy Boucher said.Oilers coach Todd McLellan admitted he’s beginning to run out of accolades for McDavid.”He’s just a remarkable athlete,” McLellan said. ”Especially the way they responded after getting scored on, that was important. It was great leadership and we talked a lot about this pushback, response shifts and he and their line did a tremendous job of doing that. He’s just got so much pace to his game, change of speed, deception, it’s tough to defend.”Drake Caggiula also had two goals for the Oilers, with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Ty Rattie adding the others. Cam Talbot stopped 33 shots as Edmonton concluded a four-game trip 3-1-0.Matt Duchene and Filip Chlapik replied for Ottawa, while Craig Anderson made 32 saves.Trailing 2-0 to start the third, the Senators made it a one-goal game on Duchene’s power-play tally. But the Oilers responded with a goal eight seconds later by Nugent-Hopkins following a great pass from McDavid.Edmonton then made it 4-1 on yet another stellar play by McDavid, who set up Rattie for his third of the season. Caggiula scored his second of the night at 6:34 Jonathan Bernier Jersey Womens , also on the power play.”I thought we had some guys who did a really good job on (McDavid) early and he had the one goal where he found some open ice, but other than that I thought we kept him in check,” Duchene said. ”It just shows you that if you give a guy like that a little bit of room, he can make you pay.”Ottawa made it 5-2 as Chlapik scored his first NHL goal, tipping a shot by Marian Gaborik. Bobby Ryan picked up his 500th career point with the second assist.McDavid scored his second of the night and 36th of the season late in the contest as he walked around Mike Hoffman.McDavid gave the Oilers a 2-0 lead five minutes into the second when he took a pass from Nugent-Hopkins in the slot and beat Anderson high.Edmonton opened the scoring midway through the first as Caggiula found a loose puck in the crease and knocked it in for his 11th of the season.NOTES: Ryan Dzingel returned to Senators’ lineup following a one-game absence after taking a puck to the back of the head last Saturday. … D Christian Wolanin made his NHL debut with the Senators.

His father, Craig, played 695 NHL games and won a Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche. … G Filip Gustavsson, acquired by Ottawa from Pittsburgh in the Derick Brassard trade, arrived Thursday and met with reporters for the first time. The Swedish prospect, who had been playing in his native country, will join the AHL’s Belleville Senators on Friday. ”I like playing on the small ice,” Gustavsson said. ”There’s a bit more speed and I’m looking forward to it.” … The Senators were without captain Erik Karlsson (personal reasons) and forward Mark Stone (leg). Edmonton forward Mike Cammalleri was a healthy scratch.UP NEXTOilers: Host Los Angeles on Saturday night.Senators: Host Carolina on Saturday night.— SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — David Pastrnak delivered once again. Patrice Bergeron showed off his all-around game, and Tuukka Rask made a couple of big stops.Oh Mike Reilly Jersey , and those suits, too.It was stylish start to the new year for the Boston Bruins.Pastrnak had a goal and an assist, Rask made 36 saves and the Bruins beat the Chicago Blackhawks 4-2 on Tuesday in the Winter Classic at Notre Dame.“You want to win those games when you’re on the big stage like that,” Bergeron said. “I know it’s a regular-season game, but still you know the meaning’s different when you’re playing in front of 76,000 people and on national TV. So we know what’s at stake with those games and we want to make the most of it.”They certainly dressed for the occasion. Bergeron and company wore tailored suits, vests and hats to the game in a nod to their surroundings and “Peaky Blinders,” a TV show about a gang in England right after World War I. Rask also had Notre Dame’s iconic “Play Like A Champion Today” sign painted on the back of his helmet.“I think these are the experiences that once you are done with the hockey career you can look back and like be happy that you were a part of and kind of cherish those moments,” Rask said.Bergeron, Sean Kuraly and Brad Marchand also scored as Boston won for the second time in three appearances in the NHL’s annual outdoor game on New Year’s Day. The Bruins went 2 for 5 with the man advantage and killed off each of the Blackhawks’ four power plays.The game was tied at 2 when Boston (22-14-4) caught a break in the third period — a little luck at the home of the Fighting Irish. Matt Grzelcyk’s big slap shot went off teammate Chris Wagner in front, but Kuraly beat Blackhawks defenseman Gustav Forsling to the rebound and backhanded the puck past Cam Ward at 10:20.“Big goal,” coach Bruce Cassidy said.Backed by most of the sellout crowd of 76,126 in perfect conditions for outdoor hockey — the game-time temperature was 35.5 degrees, and a gray Womens Paul Byron Jersey , overcast sky took the sun out of the equation — Chicago pushed hard for the tying score in the closing minutes, but came up empty.Jonathan Toews sent a shot off the post after the Blackhawks pulled Ward for an extra attacker with about 1:30 left. Marchand then added an empty-netter for his 13th of the season.“We had a little lull there in the third and ended up going down,” Blackhawks coach Jeremy Colliton said. “It’s hard when we were chasing them from then on. Disappointing that we did enough and probably deserved more.”Chicago (15-21-6) had won five of six, but it remained winless in an NHL-high fourth appearance in the Winter Classic. It also dropped to 1-5 in six outdoor games — also tops in the league.Brendan Perlini and Dominik Kahun scored for the Blackhawks, and Ward made 32 stops in his first outdoor NHL game.“Just an unbelievable experience,” Ward said. “I’m really thankful I got the opportunity to do it and you’re just disappointed that you don’t come away with the win.”Chicago jumped in front when it scored first for the sixth straight game. David Kampf dug the puck out from behind the net and found a wide-open Perlini in the slot 8:30 into the first.Pastrnak responded with his team-best 24th goal. With Artem Anisimov in the penalty box for tripping, Pastrnak got free in front and slid the puck past Ward at 12:38. He then celebrated by flapping his arms like a bird.The teams exchanged goals again in the second. Kahun scored his fifth of the season when he redirected Erik Gustafsson’s shot by Rask, but Bergeron broke up a potential short-handed breakaway for Kampf before tying it at 2 when he scored another power-play goal with 1:12 left in the period.“He never quits, and that’s why he’s Patrice Bergeron,” Cassidy said.NOTES: It was Perlini’s third goal in his past eight games. He had two goals in 22 games with Arizona before he was traded to Chicago on Nov. 25. … Blackhawks F Patrick Kane lost his seven-game point streak. … Bruins F David Backes served the second of a three-game suspension for an illegal hit to the head. … Marchand returned to the lineup after he missed Saturday’s 3-2 overtime win at Buffalo with an upper-body injury.UP NEXTBruins: Open a four-game homestand Thursday night against Calgary.Blackhawks: Visit the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
