Obviously I want to be a little bit more productive

NASHVILLE http://www.denverbroncosteamonline.com/p...say-jersey , Tenn. (AP) — Missing a few players due to injuries and an illness, the Nashville Predators reached to the minors for some help. It paid off with a win.Eeli Tolvanen scored his first NHL goal and added an assist to lead Nashville to a 5-2 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night.Tolvanen, the 30th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, got his first goal 3 1/2 minutes into the game. On the left half wall, Smith sent a backhand pass to Tolvanen alone in the low slot, where he sent a backhand over Ward’s glove to push Nashville’s lead to 2-0.“That’s a goal I’m going to remember my whole life,” Tolvanen said. “It was a great pass. I was kind of alone with the goalie and I tried a backhand and it went in.”Tolvanen was recalled from Milwaukee of the AHL earlier Saturday after Filip Forsberg, the team’s leading goal scorer, was placed on Injured Reserve with an upper-body injury that will sideline the Swede for 4 to 6 weeks.Nashville was already without forwards Viktor Arvidsson and Kyle Turris and defenseman P.K. Subban Womens Phillip Lindsay Jersey , who all are on IR. Center Nick Bonino missed Saturday’s game with illness. Anthony Richard was also recalled Saturday and arrived at the arena late in the afternoon in time to make his NHL debut.“It’s different when you lose one,” Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. “When it was just (Arvidsson), it was. ‘Alright we’ll juggle it up a little bit,’ but I still think that there was a real belief that we were going to be successful tonight. Opportunity for guys like Eeli, like (Anthony) Richard coming up here. I thought he played a good game.”Craig Smith, Kevin Fiala and Ryan Johansen also each had a goal and an assist, and Austin Watson added an empty-netter for the Predators. Pekka Rinne stopped 19 shots.Nashville was motivated after a 3-0 loss to Arizona on Thursday night.“We had a tough practice yesterday, everybody was pretty angry,” Fiala said. “Today we (brought) it to the game and everyone was still (upset) about the last game and it was a great response.”Brandon Saad and Artem Anisimov scored for Chicago Cheap Kerryon Johnson Jersey , which has lost three straight. Cam Ward finished with 24 saves.Johansen’s power-play goal at 4:11 of the first made it 3-0. Fiala attempted a wraparound on the right post but the puck sailed wide to Johansen positioned on the left post and he scored his fifth of the season.“We haven’t started well lately and we’re trying to figure out a way to correct that and it’s just not happened,” Chicago captain Jonathan Toews said. “It’s frustrating. We’ve got to be better, we know that. Try and keep cracking down on all the little details, that’s all we can do.”On a rare 7-minute power play for the Predators, including two full minutes of a 5-on-3, the teams traded goals, with Saad scoring short-handed with 7:40 left and Smith on the power play with 6:25 remaining to make it 4-1.“We got energy from the penalty kill,” Chicago coach Jeremy Colliton said. “It seemed like we got the desperation and the urgency that we needed when we were in that spot.”The lengthy man-advantage was a result of Duncan Keith being assessed 29 minutes in penalties, including a game misconduct http://www.lionscheapshop.com/cheap-auth...son-jersey , at 7:18 after taking exception to a check that Predators forward Miikka Salomaki delivered to him on the right boards.Anisimov scored the only goal of a relatively quiet second period. Brandon Manning drew three Predators to him in the left circle before firing a pass to an unchecked Anisimov in the slot, where he beat Rinne on the glove side to pull Chicago within two.Watson added his empty-netter with 2:54 remaining in the third.Fiala scored the game’s first goal at 2:11 of the opening period. From the left point, Matt Irwin threw the puck into traffic in front of the Chicago net. In the low slot, Fiala grabbed the puck, spun around and beat Ward low on the stick side.NOTES: Laviolette earned his 200th regular season victory with Nashville. … Predators C Anthony Richard made his NHL debut. … Nashville is 6-2-0 against fellow Central Division teams this season. … Chicago is 2-12-1 when giving up the first goal. .. Anisimov has scored in consecutive games for the first time this season.UP NEXTBlackhawks: Host Calgary on Sunday.Predators: Host Buffalo on Monday. CHICAGO (AP) — Dylan Strome and Brendan Perlini got right to work with the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday.Strome and Perlini made it to Chicago in time to join their new team for practice after they were acquired Sunday night in a trade with Arizona. The Blackhawks sent Nick Schmaltz to the Coyotes for Strome and Perlini in a swap of former first-round draft picks.“Watching both Brendan and Dylan play, I think there’s a lot of attributes to their game that are going to translate well to how we want to play,” general manager Stan Bowman said.Strome and Perlini could make their Chicago debuts when the Blackhawks host the Vegas Golden Knights on Tuesday night.The trade reunites Strome with Alex DeBrincat after they played together with the Erie Otters in the OHL for three seasons. Strome had 22 goals and 53 assists and DeBrincat finished with 65 goals and 62 assists during their final season together in 2016-17.“He’s one of my best friends,” Stome said. “It’s nice to see him again, see a familiar face around the rink. We had a lot of chemistry back in junior Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey , a lot of good times. We’ll see what happens here. But obviously he can score. I know he’s fun to play with.”Strome was selected by Arizona with the No. 3 pick in the 2015 draft, ahead of budding stars Mitch Marner, Mikko Rantanen, Mathew Barzal and Thomas Chabot. DeBrincat had to wait to No. 39 overall before Chicago grabbed him in 2016.But DeBrincat has flourished with the Blackhawks while Strome has put up more modest numbers. The 21-year-old Strome has just seven goals and nine assists in 48 career games, and the Blackhawks are hoping he can deliver on his considerable potential in Chicago.“Obviously I want to be a little bit more productive. I don’t think it’s any surprise to anyone,” Strome said. “I want to put up numbers and help whatever team I’m on win, so I want to come here and help this team win. I’m a Chicago Blackhawk now and I’m proud and I’m ready to get to work.”The 22-year-old Perlini has two goals and four assists in 22 games this season. He set career highs with 17 goals and 13 assists in 74 games last season.“It’s a new fresh opportunity for me,” said Perlini, who was selected by Arizona with the No. 12 pick in the 2014 draft. “You can tell in practice Authentic Deshaun Watson Jersey , you know, great players, a lot of veteran guys who have done great things in the game. So for me to come in, I just want to learn off them and improve and get better every day.”
