the Chicago Blackhawks‘ offense rolling in the right direction.Patrick Kane has taken the baton.Kane Tyler Bozak Jersey Womens , who has scored seven goals in the past seven games, looks to extend his streak when the Blackhawks host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday at the United Center. Kane accounted for two of Chicago’s three third-period goals in a 4-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday night.Article continues below ...Chicago (4-1-2) won for the first time in regulation this season and hopes to build off of it against the Lightning, who lost 5-4 in overtime to the Minnesota Wild on Saturday.The Blackhawks’ offense provided plenty of goal-scoring for Corey Crawford, who logged 37 saves in his second game back after making his first appearance in 10 months earlier this week. Given the back-to-back nature of Sunday’s game after Crawford made the start Saturday in Columbus, whether he is back in net Sunday against the Lightning likely won’t be decided until Sunday.But Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville liked what he saw Saturday.“That was vintage Crow,” Quenneville told reporters afterSaturday’s win, according to NBC Sports Chicago. Kane added, “As (Quenneville) would say, that’s a goalie win for us.”As Kane continued to surge ahead offensively Chad Johnson Jersey Womens , Crawford appears to be fully back despite the amount of time he missed with the concussion. Crawford posted the victory by stopping 37 of the 38 shots he faced to secure his first victory.“Felt really good,” Crawford told reporters, according to the Chicago Tribune. “(I) was reading plays really well. I thought our (defensemen) were blocking shots and I don’t know how many we tipped into the net. (Columbus) had a lot of speed and we were taking that away.”Now, Chicago, which many pundits predicted would miss the playoffs for a second straight season, will look to carry the momentum of Saturday’s solid performance on the road into Sunday’s game back at home.Before the season began, Kane and his teammates stressed the importance of a strong start. The Blackhawks have gotten what they wished for.“That was really our focus this year,” Kane told reporters, according to the Tribune. “We’re happy with our start Brian Flynn Jersey Womens , (but) we can play a little bit better.”Tampa Bay (4-1-1) won’t have much time to recover from Saturday’s loss to the Wild in which the Lightning watched a 3-1 lead disappear after the first period and needed an Anton Stralman goal in the third period to force overtime. Andrei Vasilevsky made 29 saves for the Lightning, who saw their three-game winning streak end with Saturday’s loss.“This one stings,” Lightning defenseman Ryan McDonaugh told reporters after the loss, according to TampaBay.com. “We’ve got to learn here to not take a period off.”After such a quick start when Tampa Bay got goals from Ryan Callahan (his first of the season) and J.T. Miller, it appeared the Lightning were on their way.“I think we stopped doing the things that made us successful in the first period,” Stralman told reporters. ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Vegas defenseman Nate Schmidt is familiar with the ebbs and flows of the NHL.Schmidt and the Golden Knights continued their surge on Friday night while keeping the Anaheim Ducks in a funk.Max Pacioretty scored in his return to the Vegas lineup and the Golden Knights extended their winning streak to five games, beating the Ducks 3-2 Friday night.The Golden Knights fell behind in the second period when the Ducks scored two goals 18 seconds apart. But Vegas retook the lead with two goals in a 31-second span to improve to 6-0-2 in their last eight games.“We sure tested ourselves a few times early in the second period. But, again Christian Folin Jersey Womens , we found a way to win and we’re never going to apologize for that,” said Schmidt, who scored for Vegas. “As the year goes on, you are going to have your surges and a couple times when you’re not playing that well, but I thought our guys, even when we’re down in the game or we’re not playing that well, we find ways to get ourselves back in.”Tomas Nosek had a goal and an assist, Marc Andre-Fleury made 25 saves, and Vegas secured the first three games of the teams’ four-game season series.Nosek tied it at 2-all at 10:15 of the second period. He reached around John Gibson and backhanded in a rebound of a shot by Brayden McNabb. Pacioretty put Vegas back in front 3-2 at 10:46.Playing for the first time since Dec. 17 and missing seven games because of an undisclosed injury David Perron Jersey Womens , Pacioretty got behind two Ducks in transition and scored off a pass from Paul Stastny.It was the seventh time Pacioretty and Stastny have played together this season, as both have dealt with injuries. But chemistry displayed on Pacioretty’s 11th goal showed why Vegas signed Stastny as a free agent in July, traded for Pacioretty in September and signed him to a contract extension.“It’s been a start to the season that no one drew up with injuries and playing through them and sitting out for both of us,” Pacioretty said. “To be able to come in now and feel pretty good and kind of start from scratch and put together a good win as a line is a good step.”Daniel Sprong and Carter Rowney scored for the Ducks, who dropped to 0-5-2 in their last seven games. Gibson made 39 saves.Sprong scored on the power play at 1:57 to tie the game at 1. Rowney then put the Ducks ahead 2-1 at 2:15 by catching the Golden Knights on an odd-man rush.“If we can put the good minutes we had this night, if we can put them over like more of 50, 60 minutes, we’re going to be successful,” Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm said.The Golden Knights took a 1-0 lead at 6:52 on the first period when Schmidt scored on a slap shot from the blue line through traffic during a delayed penalty. Gibson made a save and paddled the puck away during the buildup to Schmidt’s fourth goal Jimmy Hayes Jersey Womens , but the officials did not stop play.Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said he never receiver an explanation why there was not a whistle, and refused to elaborate on the sequence.“I’ve been fined once before, so my wife doesn’t like me writing big checks to the league,” Carlyle said.NOTES: The Golden Knights improved to 16-0-2 when leading after two periods. . Vegas F Alex Tuch had an assist to extend his point streak to five games, with two goals and four assists in that span. . Vegas D Shea Theodore did not play because of illness.UP NEXTGolden Knights: Host New Jersey on Sunday.Ducks: Host Edmonton on Sunday.
