ST. PAUL Linki görebilmek için giriş yapmanız ya da üye olmanız gerekir. , Minn. (AP) — A goaltender who was winless in his previous 21 decisions outplayed an All-Star down the stretch Friday night.Cory Schneider got his first win in nearly 14 months when Nico Hischier scored 3:19 into overtime, lifting the New Jersey Devils to a wild 5-4 victory over the slumping Minnesota Wild.Hischier, Marcus Johansson and Kyle Palmieri each had a goal and an assist for the Devils, who won for the second time in eight games. Will Butcher and Ben Lovejoy also scored.“We’ve talked a lot about when things aren’t going well and adversity strikes it’s up to the way we care about each other and tonight showed that,” Palmieri said. “It was our culture coming out and believing in each other.”Schneider had 15 saves in relief of Keith Kinkaid, including three in overtime. He allowed five goals Thursday in Chicago and was 0-17-4 since his last win on Dec. 27, 2017.“Sometimes things happen in a strange way, but I was more excited for our team just to show some mettle and to come back and win a tough game after a tough trip,” Schneider said. “It was nice to see us get rewarded as a group. For anybody who knows me Linki görebilmek için giriş yapmanız ya da üye olmanız gerekir. , I’m not overly emotional one way or another. I think everyone else was more excited about it than I was.”In overtime, Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk’s errant pass behind the net was picked off by Palmieri. Dubnyk made a save before Hischier whacked in a loose puck to complete an improbable comeback.Dubnyk, who played in his third All-Star game last month, has allowed 10 goals in the last two games, both losses that included Minnesota blowing a multi-goal lead.“They’re finding their way in. It’s frustrating,” he said. “We probably deserved four points out of the last two games and we only got one. Got to find a way.”Coach Bruce Boudreau was non-committal when asked if Dubnyk will start Sunday against St. Louis.“It’ll be a conversation that the coaches and the goalie coach have tomorrow and the GM and we’ll see what transpires,” Boudreau said. “There’s a couple things. We’re not blind. We saw how they went in, but the other thing that bothers me is we do this all the time, we get them down and you don’t get that killer instinct and you stop playing and you try to defend all the time and it’s a losing way to play.”Playing for the third time in four nights Linki görebilmek için giriş yapmanız ya da üye olmanız gerekir. , New Jersey trailed 4-1 late in the second period before Butcher scored off a deflected pass. Palmieri added a power-play goal midway through the third.Lovejoy scored with 2:45 left in regulation when he beat Dubnyk with a low slap shot from the left circle.Mikael Granlund and Brad Hunt each had a goal and assist for Minnesota, which dropped to 1-4-3 in its past eight games. Joel Eriksson Ek and Nick Seeler also scored, and Ryan Suter had two assists.The Wild are clinging to the final playoff wild card in the jumbled Western Conference.Hunt scored a power-play goal and Eriksson Ek turned a gaffe by Kinkaid behind his net into an easy wraparound for a 2-0 lead midway through the first.Johansson converted a one-timer 26 seconds into the second before Seeler and Granlund scored to increase Minnesota’s lead to 4-1 and end Kinkaid’s night with 13 saves.NOTES: New Jersey is 2-18-2 when trailing after the first period. … The Devils placed C Blake Coleman (upper body) on injured reserve and activated LW Miles Wood off IR. Coleman has 18 goals, second-best on the team. … Play was stopped in the first period when, prior to a TV timeout, the Wild ice crew opened the Zamboni door thinking Dubnyk held onto the puck after a save during a New Jersey forecheck.UP NEXTDevils: Open a three-game homestand Sunday against Buffalo.Wild: Host St. Louis on Sunday. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Nashville Predators have made a pair of trades, adding size and toughness trying in an attempt to fill the void created by the absence of a trio of players.That doesn’t mean general manager David Poile is necessarily finished trying to improve the defending Presidents’ Trophy winners. There is still three weeks before the NHL trade deadline. And no matter how happy Poile is with his roster after trading for a pair of veteran forwards in Brian Boyle from New Jersey and Cody McLeod from the Rangers on Wednesday, things can always be better.Poile plans to keep making calls Linki görebilmek için giriş yapmanız ya da üye olmanız gerekir. , listening and paying attention until the deadline Feb. 25.“I think just look for the right deal,” Poile said. “If we can improve our club, we’re going to do that. I’m comfortable with what we have in our depth and filling the holes that I thought we had or got created by the three players that we’ve lost in the last couple weeks. But if we can improve our team in the next three weeks, we will certainly do that.”The Predators lost defenseman Anthony Bitetto to a waiver claim to Minnesota on Jan. 25, trying to sneak him to the AHL for some playing time. Forward Austin Watson was suspended indefinitely Jan. 29 under the NHL’s substance abuse program. Poile announced Wednesday that forward Zac Rinaldo will have season-ending surgery for an injured shoulder.Nashville center Kyle Turris has missed 17 straight games but could return Thursday against Dallas or this weekend in a back-to-back, home-and-home series with St. Louis. Forward Miikka Salomaki also may be closing to a return from an injury.Poile swapped the Predators’ second-round pick in June’s NHL draft for Boyle and will send the Rangers a seventh-round pick in the 2020 NHL draft for McLeod. That was prompted by a worst case scenario of Watson possibly not returning this season.That left size the most immediate need filled by both Boyle, a 6-foot-6, 245-pound forward who can play center and wing, and the 6-2 Linki görebilmek için giriş yapmanız ya da üye olmanız gerekir. , 245-pound McLeod. That should help Nashville better match up with Winnipeg, which ousted the Predators in the second round in seven games last postseason.“This year it will have to be through Winnipeg,” Poile said. “There are no guarantees that’s the case, but yes … I think we wanted to have more size in our lineup.”Both Boyle and McLeod should be in Nashville and available Thursday night when the Predators host Dallas.Boyle, 34, has 13 goals and 19 points in his 12th NHL season, and he also has 88 hits in 47 games with New Jersey this season. Boyle won the 2017 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy after battling chronic myeloid leukemia.The center originally was drafted 26th overall in the 2003 draft held in Nashville by Los Angeles, and he has played 740 career NHL games with 211 points. He also has blocked 513 shots and 1,498 hits and played in the Stanley Cup Final in 2014 with the New York Rangers and 2015 with Tampa Bay. Boyle has 28 points in 111 career postseason games.Better yet Linki görebilmek için giriş yapmanız ya da üye olmanız gerekir. , Boyle scored five power-play goals last season and has six this season, which Poile noted is more than anyone on the Nashville roster. The Predators ended an 0-for-34 drought with the man advantage Tuesday night in a win over Arizona and still went 1-for-5 on the power play.Poile has regretted losing McLeod since Nashville waived him in January 2018, trying to get the veteran more playing time with Milwaukee in the AHL only to lose him. McLeod’s wife and two children remained in Nashville, and McLeod, 34, has a goal and 60 penalty minutes in 31 games this season with the Rangers.“Hopefully together we can do something real significant this year in the playoffs,” Poile said.
