WASHINGTON — It will be a Stanley Cup Finals rematch when the Vegas Golden Knights visit the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.The Capitals defeated the Knights in five games last spring to win their first-ever Cup and end the expansion Knights’ Cinderella season.It’s too early to call this year a sophomore slump Womens Tyler Toffoli Jersey , but the Knights have wobbled out of the gate 1-2. Vegas lost 4-2 to the Baffalo Sabres on Monday night in the second stop of a five-game road trip despite outshooting the Sabres 37-17.Article continues below ...“Too many (Grade A chances) obviously,” Knights forward Max Pacioretty told NHL.com. “You know, we limited them to a low number of shots, however, the shots that they did get were Grade A opportunities. We can’t leave our goaltender out to dry like that.”Jonathan Marchessault had a goal and an assist for the Knights.Vegas, which is 0 of 8 on the power play thus far, didn’t pick up its second loss until the 10th game of last season and now faces back-to-backs against the Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins.“They’re the Stanley Cup champs,” Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant said of the Capitals. “We look at this game (Wednesday) night, it’s a big challenge for our group so we’ll get ready to play them. We know them, they know us real well, so hopefully it’ll be a good game and we’d like to come out on top.”Washington (1-0-1) comes into the game well rested, with five days off since dropping a 7-6 overtime decision to the Pittsburgh Penguins after blanking the Boston Bruins 7-0 on opening night.While Gallant somewhat downplayed the rematch in terms of its meaning beyond two points in the standings, new Capitals coach Todd Reirden expects an intense affair.“Obviously, through a five-game series you develop a little bit of hatred for certain guys, so it’s always nice to get back in to that sort of rivalry that we’ve developed with them http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-devan-dubnyk-jersey ,” he said. “I think it’ll be good for our team — especially after five days — to help us get right into the game and know it’s going to be a competitive situation with a real hungry team that’s looking to knock us off.”Reirden will have two additions to his lineup Wednesday night.Defenseman Michal Kempny, who missed the first two games with a concussion, is set to return and be paired with John Carlson.“I never had a concussion before, so I didn’t know what to expect,” Kempny said. “Some headaches, and it was something a little bit weird, but then I felt a better and better every day.”Forward Dmitrij Jaskin, who was claimed on waivers from the St. Louis Blues just before the season began, will make his Washington debut skating on the fourth line with center Nic Dowd and Devante Smith-Pelly.For the Knights, forward Cody Eakin, who has been out with a lower body injury, could return. He provided 11 goals and 16 assists in 80 games last season.Capitals goalie Braden Holtby pitched a shutout opening night before surrendering seven goals against the Penguins. Holtby allowed eight goals versus the Knights in the final four games of last spring’s finals as Washington rallied from a 1-0 deficit.Marc-Andre Fleury has a 3.93 goals-against average in two-plus games this season. He surrendered four goals per game to Washington in the Cup finals. BOSTON (AP) — Somewhere along the way, Canadiens defenseman Jeff Petry must have learned a little baseball, too.The son of major league pitcher Dan Petry scored the game-winner just 15 seconds into overtime on Monday night, batting the puck out of the air and past Tuukka Rask to give Montreal a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins.“That bloodline of Jeff Petry in the baseball world Eric Staal Jersey ,” Canadiens coach Claude Julien said with a smile, “he showed his talent on that goal.”Carey Price stopped 41 shots for the Canadiens, but he allowed David Krejci’s 6-on-4 goal with 38 seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime. Once there, Montreal didn’t need a lot of time to regain the lead.After winning the opening faceoff, the Canadiens gathered in their own zone before Max Domi carried the puck over the blue line and then waited for Petry to get into position in front of the Boston net.Domi’s shot went off Rask’s glove and into the air, where Petry swatted it into the net with his backhand.“We lost the draw and then all of a sudden, we never touch it,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said.Paul Byron scored a short-handed goal, and Brendan Gallagher also scored to help Montreal earn its third victory in four tries.Rask made 19 saves but lost for the first time in his last six starts. A year after the Bruins swept their Original Six rivals in the season series — winning six matchups in a row in all — the Canadiens managed to split their four meetings this season.“It’s our No. 1 rival, lot of history here,” Byron said. “And every time you come in this building and win, it’s huge.”Brad Marchand scored for Boston, giving the Bruins a 1-0 lead about six minutes into the game. Julien said the turning point was when Nicolas Deslauriers and Boston’s Kevan Miller dropped their gloves late in the first period.Although it was the Canadiens defenseman who lost his helmet and wound up on the bottom when the two went to the ice, Julien said it gave his team a boost.“I think it helped,” Julien said. “We scored afterward Womens Jared Spurgeon Jersey , and I think when you look at the kind of fight it was, there’s no doubt it gave us a spark. … It’s the kind of thing we don’t see much anymore, but I think the players and the coaches appreciated what he did.”Gallagher tied it about two minutes later. Late in the second, with Victor Mete off for hooking, Byron outskated Boston’s Patrice Bergeron to a loose puck at the blue line and went in on the net, switching to his backhand before flipping it past Rask’s glove for the go-ahead goal.It stayed that way until Montreal’s Michael Chaput was called for delay of game for shooting the puck over the glass with 2:05 left. Rask came off 30 seconds later, and the Bruins worked their two-man advantage and got the puck to Krejci, who wristed it into the net to assure Boston one point.“We got one. Krejci got a big goal there late to get us that point,” Marchand said.“Would have been nice to get the second with Toronto losing tonight.”NOTES: David Pastrnak played in his 300th NHL game. … The Bruins wore the sweaters they made for the Winter Classic, at Notre Dame Stadium against the Chicago Blackhawks. … Bergeron has 13 points in 11 games since he missed 16 with a rib injury. … Canadiens coach Claude Julien improved to 2-6 against the team he led to the 2011 Stanley Cup championship. … Byron, who hadn’t scored a point in six games, scored his first goal since back-to-back game-winners on Dec. 20 and 22.UP NEXTCanadiens: Host the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.Bruins: Visit the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night.
