The Penguins were riding high after Antworten

COLUMBUS Custom Buffalo Sabres Jerseys , Ohio (AP) The Columbus Blue Jackets are starting to look in front of them to see who they can catch.Only a week ago, Columbus was simply aiming at hanging onto the final Eastern Conference wild-card playoff spot and hoping some teams behind in the standings would help out.A 3-2 win over Detroit on Friday night, their fourth straight, put the Blue Jackets in the first wild-card spot with a one-point lead over New Jersey and just two points behind Philadelphia for third place in the Metropolitan Division.Seth Jones scored twice in the second period and Sergei Bobrovsky returned from an illness to make 22 saves as the Blue Jackets beat the Red Wings to sweep a back-to-back. They have won six of the last eight.”We always talked about how we just want to make sure we’re hitting our stride at the right time,” Columbus captain Nick Foligno said. ”We’ve got a little ways to go, but we feel more and more confident about our game as we get closer to the stuff that really matters. That’s kind of always been our focus.”Jones got his tallies after winning Thursday night’s game against Colorado with a goal 59 seconds into overtime.”The puck’s just going in,” shrugged the 23-year-old defenseman, who has 13 goals and 33 assists. ”You get stretches like that. Sometimes it goes in and sometimes you go 15 to 20 games without a point. That’s just the way hockey is. It’s a good time for me to be producing right now in the situation we’re in.”Columbus coach John Tortorella gives him way more credit than that.”He’s had a hell of a year offensively, but the most important part about Jonsesy’s game is becoming a leader,” Tortorella said. ”He doesn’t say too much during the game, but just the way he carries himself right now, he knows he’s part of that leadership group. All facets of the game, he just keeps improving.”Darren Helm and Andreas Athanasiou scored, and Jared Coreau www.officialflames.com , in just his second start of the season, had 33 stops for the reeling Red Wings, losers of six straight.The Blue Jackets started with a short-handed goal near the end of the first period when Alexander Wennberg carried the puck around the back of the net and chipped it out to Calvert, who poked it by Coreau.The lead didn’t last long. Just 21 seconds later, Helm caught Bobrovsky leaning the wrong way and got an easy goal to make it 1-1.Columbus went back up early in the second period when Jones rifled in a shot from the left circle off a sweet cross-ice pass from Artemi Panarin. Jones struck again at 8:15 when he put back Boone Jenner’s rebound.”As the game went along, they started to grind us a little bit and we had trouble getting out of our end too many times,” Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said.Athanasiou beat Bobrovsky between the pads late in the third period to make it a one-goal game. Helm had a potential tying shot in the final seconds, but Bobrovsky made a nifty save to preserve the win.NOTES: Jones has five goals and five assists in the last eight games. … Panarin has seven points in his last four games. … Bobrovsky missed two games with illness during which backup Joonas Korpisalo picked up a pair of wins. … Healthy scratches for Columbus included D Scott Harrington, D Taylor Chorney, F Markus Hannikainen and F Lukas Sedlak. … Detroit F Frans Nielsen missed his second game with an injury. Other scratches for the Red Wings included F David Booth and D Xavier Ouellet.UP NEXTDetroit: Plays at San Jose on Monday.Columbus: Hosts Montreal on Monday.—Follow Mitch Stacy at http://twitter.com/mitchstacy— The New Jersey Devils and Pittsburgh Penguins each lug a three-game losing streak into their Metropolitan Division matchup Monday at PPG Paints Arena, but the demeanor of each club is vastly different.The Devils (5-5-1) felt as if they turned a corner in a good way Saturday despite a 3-0 loss to the New York Islanders, while Pittsburgh (6-3-3) was left reeling after a 5-0 loss the same night against Toronto.New Jersey coach John Hynes talked about there being steps to getting out of a funk, and he thinks his team has taken a big one.Article continues below ...“Lots of times when you come out of it your play has to be better first,” he said. “Lots of times you don’t come out of these with a win; you come out of it by playing better and playing better and playing better.“If we can build on our work ethic and how we played (Saturday) Calgary Flames T-Shirts Authentic , then we’re going to put ourselves in situations to win games.”Before the Islanders game, the Devils lost two games by a combined 12-6. New Jersey goaltender Keith Kinkaid noticed a difference Saturday, describing that game as “a little setback” when the team “ran into a hot goalie.”“There’s plenty of season left,” Kinkaid said. “We’re just going through a little spell. Everything’s a learning curve. We have a young team. We’ve just got to keep sticking with it.”Winger Taylor Hall, the defending Hart Trophy winner, thought the Devils were more competitive and better defensively.“It seems like for the most part we have a grasp for how we need to play in our own end right now,” Hall said. “Comparing our game (Saturday) to the last couple, there was a lot of improvement in a lot of areas. It’s a good building-block game for how we need to play going forward.”The Penguins, meanwhile, spent Sunday trying to simply remind themselves of what those building blocks are.“We’ve got to try to reinforce the details and the work ethic associated with winning, and that was part of the practice (Sunday), was trying to make sure that we get back to basics and that we focus on the process and the details associated with winning — and with our team it starts with skating,” Pittsburgh coach Mike Sullivan said.The Penguins were riding high after a 4-0 road trip through Canada, but the three-game losing streak (0-2-1) has immediately followed.“Right now we’re down Calgary Flames Hoodies Authentic , and we have to … find ourselves a little bit,” winger Patric Hornqvist said.After being outskated and outworked Saturday by the Maple Leafs, there was plenty of soul-searching.Defenseman Kris Letang said the Penguins were “flat” and that “there was no emotion.”Sullivan, rarely critical of his club, said the past week has taken a toll.“This league has a funny way of humbling you. Right now I think we’ve been humbled,” he said.Pittsburgh winger Matt Cullen, the oldest player in the NHL, has been around plenty long enough to know that even just a month into the season, a lull without a correction can lead to things going sideways.“We have to dig down and find a way to turn things around,” he said. “I don’t have any question that we will, but we don’t have any time to waste.”
