COLUMBUS Philadelphia Flyers Hats Womens , Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Blue Jackets had four days to stew after being pounded by Tampa Bay on the road last weekend. In the first period against Philadelphia on Thursday night, they didn’t look much better.But the Blue Jackets shook off the malaise and used a three-goal flurry in the second period to speed past the Flyers on the way to a 6-3 victory on Thursday night.Cam Atkinson had back-to-back goals in the second for Columbus, both set up with sweet cross-ice passes from Artemi Panarin.“We talked about it between periods,” Atkinson said. “Our first period just simply wasn’t good enough and competitive enough. I think we kind of answered the bell there in the second and third.”Sergei Bobrovsky, who had absorbed a lot of the criticism after the 8-2 rout by the Lightning on Saturday, had 32 saves against Philadelphia (3-4).Anthony Duclair, Nick Foligno, Josh Anderson and Sonny Milano also scored for the Blue Jackets (3-3). Travis Konecny had a goal and an assist, and Oskar Lindblom and Sean Courturier scored for the Flyers. Backup goalie Calvin Pickard, in a scheduled start ahead of Brian Elliott, stopped 22 shots.Konecny got credit for his first goal of the year when he redirected a shot from Robert Hagg halfway through the first period.Duclair answered late in the period with what was the most impressive goal of the game . He fell with the puck in front of the Flyers’ goal, popped to his feet Custom Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys , corralled it again and, still off-balance, whacked it between Pickard’s pads.“I thought it was pretty lucky,” Duclair said.The Flyers took a 2-1 lead with 50 second left in the first period when Courturier lifted a shot over Bobrovsky’s shoulder from the top of the right circle.The Blue Jackets tied it again early in the second when Atkinson, skating hard to the blue paint, tipped in a Panarin pass. Atkinson buried his second of the night three minutes later, winning a one-on-one battle to the net with Hagg.“I thought we were a little lackluster in the first period, quite honestly, through a lot of the game, and (Atkinson) gave us a little spark in the second period to grab the lead,” Columbus coach John Tortorella said.“At that point, we had a momentum shift ,” Courturier said, “and we couldn’t get it back.” Foligno made it 4-2 , snapping a shot past Pickard’s stick side 8:34 into the second.Lindblom got a wrap-around goal for the Flyers early in the third period to pull it to 4-3, but Anderson got another one for Columbus with five minutes left in the game when he grabbed the puck away from a falling Christian Folin in front of the Philadelphia net and capitalized. Milano got the sixth with 2:12 left off a steal in the corner by Oliver Bjorkstrand.“We hit two posts early, created a lot of chances,” Courtier lamented. “Even at the start of the second we created some chances and as soon as they scored those two goals, we got too hungry to get some offense going when we should have just stuck to the plan and refocused.”NOTES: Corban Knight made his season debut after being out with an upper-body injury. He replaced Mikhail Vorobyev, who was scratched. … Tortorella said injured defenseman Seth Jones (knee) is skating again. He’s expected to be out several more weeks. … Philadelphia C Nolan Patrick missed his third game with an upper-body injury.UP NEXTPhiladelphia: Hosts New Jersey on Saturday.Columbus: Hosts Chicago on Saturday. RALEIGH, N.C. — Two teams feeling good after their most recent results meet Sunday when the New York Islanders face the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.The teams put together different types of inspirational victories in advance of this game, but the confidence might be brewing for both clubs.For the Islanders, it was Saturday afternoon’s 6-1 whipping of the Philadelphia Flyers for a strong start on a three-game road swing.Article continues below ...“They are games that mean a lot,” said Islanders center Anthony Beauvillier San Jose Sharks T-Shirts Womens , who notched his first goal of the season Saturday. “All of us want to get rolling.”The Hurricanes rallied from two-goal deficits twice in Friday night’s 4-3 shootout victory over visiting San Jose. That was Carolina’s first shootout of the season.“I think it’s a big step for us,” said Hurricanes left winger Brock McGinn, who scored in regulation and in the shootout. “I think we need to keep this confidence going.”The Hurricanes might be further establishing an identity as they continue a good start to the season with a 6-3-1 record.“The way we won was important,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said of the most recent game. “We’re not going to quit, I know that about this group.” The Hurricanes became the first team this season to outshoot the Sharks in San Jose’s 10 games. Carolina held a 41-23 edge in shots, though it was fast paced for both sides at times.“That’s the way hockey should be played,” Brind’Amour said. “I know there were lots of mistakes. But I was on the edge of my seat, and I have a pretty good one.”The Islanders are still piecing together things under first-year coach Barry Trotz. On Sunday, they try to win consecutive games for the first time this season.“We’ve done a lot of good things, haven’t always got the results we want,” Trotz said.Because of the Islanders’ wavering outcomes, there have been times when it’s hard to figure out the pulse of the team. For Trotz San Jose Sharks Hoodies Womens , he knows it will take time.“Part of the process is to understand, a lot of times with young players and even old players … to be a top player, you have to play (through it),” he said of certain struggles. “They can’t get frustrated. Make sure they play with a team concept and not try to do too much. … (They’re) getting used to us. We’re kind of retraining them a little bit.”Trotz said seeing how the Islanders develop during this road strip is crucial because there could be changes made with line combinations based on what the opponent is doing.“We’re trying to get some balance throughout the lineup,” Trotz said. “We need to be a little more consistent throughout our lineup. Stay out to the box, play our game and believe in what we’re doing.”Carolina center Sebastian Aho takes a 10-game points streak into Sunday’s game. He has an assist in every game this season, one game shy of matching Eric Staal for the franchise record of 11 consecutive games with an assist.Brind’Amour didn’t commit Saturday to using goalie Scott Darling for his season debut against the Islanders. He was activated for the last game but didn’t play. He’s coming off a groin injury suffered in the preseason finale.The teams opened the season against each other Oct. 4 in Raleigh, with the Islanders winning in overtime.
